Cheese-Filtered Cigarettes

Weird Universe introduces us to Stuart Stebbings, a businessman in Wisconsin (of course), who marketed candy made from cheese. He speculated that cheese might absorb smoke effectively and could therefore be used as the filters in cigarettes.

The best cheeses for these filters are Parmesan, Romano, and Swiss.
