FDA to ban menthol cigarettes - report

The United States Food and Drug Administration is planning a ban on menthol-flavored cigarettes, the Washington Post reported. Menthol cigarettes are the only flavored tobacco that is not restricted by a ban prohibiting its sale in objects which allow minors.

According to research done by the FDA in 2013, menthols are harder to quit than regular cigarettes and likely cause a higher health risk.

The news comes just a day after it was announced the FDA is expected to impose strict restrictions on the sale of E-cigarettes throughout the country.
