Hello... Kretek is a cigarette-like product typically composed of 60 to 80 percent tobacco, Many smokers assume that because the cigarettes contain a considerable amount of cloves, a natural spice, they aren't as risky as standard cigarettes. The truth, however, is that kreteks pose a greater health risk for smokers.Smoking clove cigarettes is associated with acute lung injury.
