Heatless tobacco units are pictured in the widow display of an iQOS smokeless cigarette store on Wardour Street in London on May 9, 2017. iQOS, manufactured by US tobacco giant Philip Morris International, is a smokeless cigarette, described as a hybrid between analog and electronic cigarettes. The iQOS heats tobacco rather than burns it and it is claimed that smokers get the same hit of nicotine, but 90 percent less of the toxins present in cigarette smoke. / AFP PHOTO / CHRIS J RATCLIFFE (Photo credit should read CHRIS J RATCLIFFE/AFP/Getty Images)Chris J.
