Is it true that menthol cigarettes are more harmful?

Most studies have shown that menthol cigarettes cause similar harmful effects to health. However, since the cooling effect of menthol reduces the harshness of cigarette smoke, menthol cigarettes may be more appealing, especially to young, inexperienced smokers. They may lead to greater nicotine dependence.
