Consequences of a match made in hell: the harm caused by menthol smoking to the African American population over 1980–2018:
For many years, national surveys have shown a consistently disproportionately high prevalence
of menthol smokers among African Americans compared with the general population. However, to our knowledge, no prior study has quantified the harm that menthol smoking has caused on that population. In this work, we estimate the public health harm that menthol cigarettes have caused to the African American community over the last four decades.
