Just because there's a patent doesn't necessarily mean that an invention is in production.We don't know what's in most cigarettes, and They Aren't Talking. 
"Trade secrets", of course.   No Right To Know here...and "Smokers' Rights" groups don't seem to care about that right...OR about victims' rights to compensation.      Smokers are Guinea pigs, uninformed, secretly-poisoned, sickened and killed, scapegoated, and denied basic rights to Informed Consent.They are still humans though, despite the big push to dehumanize...as is common in mainstream commercial media.     Few express wonder that corporate media have, in this case, apparently gone anti-corporate, as if the biggest pushers of oil, plastics, junk foods, fracking, "war", etc., care about public health.
