Camel Cigarettes – Doctor’s Choice of Smoke

1940s, Cigarettes 0 3006

Of all embarrassing cigarette ad campaigns, none come close to the irony of a doctor pitching Camel Cigarettes being better for health than any other kind of cigarette. Funny, they don’t really explain why more doctors smoke Camels except hinting that it’s good tasting and mild – hardly scientific evidence discovered by the World’s finest medical minds. Oh, and after 30 days, Camels will “agree with your throat”.

Clearly to use a doctor in a pitch shows even back in 1949 there were rising health concerns about smoking tobacco products.
