Kent cigarettes too had to make amends according to the changing public mood. In the year 1952 a series of articles were published in the Reader's Digest captioned "Cancer by the Carton", this scared American consumers into seeking out a filter brand at a time when most brands were sold without filter. So in 1952, Kent introduced their first filter variant called Kent Micronite.
