The author discusses the different myths and realities about cigarette smoking, and their link on life insurance. The author says that cotinine level testing for insurance is not being measured by the amount of cigarettes smoked since drivers are the ones who are in state of hydration. He also adds that it is important for insurers to ask the applicants who are smoking and those who already quit smoking at the age of 40 years.
