The Surgeon General has made the latest reports and states that the cigarettes made today are more harmful than the cigarettes made 50 years ago.

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has also said that the tobacco companies are developing cigarettes that are deadlier and more attractive to kids.

According to the report, cigarettes in 2015 put the people that smoke them at a higher risk for lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease than in 1964.

Here’s a list of some of the changes made to cigarettes since 1964:

  • Increased nicotine
  • Added flavors to mask the smoke
  • Added sugars to make the smoke easier to inhale
  • Menthol, which cools and numbs your throat to reduce irritation
