1953 Kent Cigarette Micronite (asbestos) filter TEST Ad

Finding a Mesothelioma lawyer has become a fairly large business on the Internet, although it hasn't quite reached eBay yet.  But for a truly morbid twist, there's one enterprising eBay seller who has a 1953 ad up for sale.

This is a slightly chilling reminder of what we didn't know 60 years ago, or people knew and didn't bother telling anybody about it. And back then, it was decided that it was a good idea to put asbestos in cigarette filters. As if smoking isn't bad enough, now you gotta go ahead and add another carcinogen to the mix.  Thanks, guys.
