So you think white bread is better for you? I don't think that science agrees.......
I think white bread is less bad for you, but also bad for you. I think that filtered cigarettes may well be worse for people than unfiltered. I don't remotely condone smoking either kind of cigarettes. For the record, I'm not as convinced of the latter as the former, but I've seen the argument presented in a compelling way. But I was just nitpicking, and I don't think either of us is arguing that people should eat either kind of bread or smoke either kind of cigarette.
If whole grains do the most damage because of the antinutrients, then perhaps white bread would be better than whole grain bread. That said, the bread available to most of us, even at health food stores has all kinds of crap in it in addition to whichever wheat they use. Not being celiac, I've found a sliced sourdough bread at WFoods that has four ingredients in it. When I keep it in my freezer, it usually lasts between a month and two months.
Cigarettes. If I were going to smoke on a regular basis, I'd spend the money to find someone who was growing tobacco without pesticides if such a product exists. Filters might be a wash. They filter out stuff, but they make the smoking experience less harsh so you can smoke more. And goddess only knows what they put in the filters.
