Cigarettes Produce Tar, Not IQOS
IQOS is a less harmful alternative to cigarettes. IQOS heats tobacco instead of burning it, which means that there is no smoke and no tar. The IQOS Originals Duo produces an aerosol residue that is fundamentally different from “Tar” and consists of significantly lower levels of harmful chemicals*. Switching completely to IQOS is less harmful than continuing to smoke cigarettes**.
Important information: The absence of tar does not mean that IQOS is risk free. IQOS provides nicotine which is addictive.
*Average reductions in the levels of a range of harmful chemicals (excluding nicotine) compared to cigarette smoke.
