    That's why people smoke Newports. They're green and white, not red like Marlboros.

    Red Dye #3 i think. like cyclamates and a bunch of other food stuffs that got labeled as causing cancer, the old color is gone, plus the red coloring makes more salt stick to the nuts and yuppie assholes decided that salt is bad for you (although the feds and recent studies say its not as bad as the feds and media hyped it to be in the past).

    I was thinking along those lines as well, but wasn't Red Dye #2 the big bad evil one? Cyclamates--we had some clear sweetener in a bottle that my father would put in coffee that was a cyclamate. I remember how pissed he was when they stopped making it. Both of my parents had cancer, by the way, although my mother wouldn't touch the cyclamates. We had all that fake stuff in my house; we used Accent on everything
