devil Tobacco Industry Forced to List Ingredients Used in Their Products
Advertisement
In 2009, the Food and Drug Administration gained authority to regulate tobacco products, and now they will soon be exercising that ability.

Already releasing preliminary guidelines for the tobacco industry that can educate consumers on exactly what is in cigarettes, the FDA is making it so tobacco companies will have to report on the amount of harmful and unsafe ingredients used in their products.

Within one year, the FDA plans to share information on chemical amounts, while tobacco makers will be required to report on the amount of 93 substances used in their products. This means that harmful ingredients used such as ammonia and formaldehyde will need to be made known to the public.

This decision will certainly ignite a slew of ingredient-based information regarding tobacco products.

“We are forging new territory to ensure that tobacco companies provide accurate information and do not mislead American consumers. We are committed to stopping such practices that may cause people to start or continue using tobacco products that could lead to preventable disease and death,” FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said in a statement.

There are over 4,000 individual compounds identified in tobacco and tobacco smoke, with at least 60 of them being known carcinogens. How would you feel after finding out that with every cigarette comes a dose of insecticide, car exhaust, gas chamber poison, ant poison, floor cleaner, mothballs, and nuclear weapon material?

The fact is, there are hundreds of chemicals in tobacco products (and cigarettes especially) that people don’t even know about.

* Insecticide – nicotine
* Car exhaust – carbon monoxide
* Gas chamber poison – hydrogen cyanide
* Ant poison – ammonia
* Mothballs – naphthalene
* Nuclear power – radioactive compounds

While this kind of information won’t be responsible for ending the bad habit of smoking for the majority of individuals, it may serve to kick the habit for many.

Even while smoking and tobacco use is already known to cause various cancers such as lung cancer, throat cancer, and stomach cancer, the health-damaging aspects of smoking aren’t enough for people to quit. But now, seeing “formaldehyde”, “lead”, and “arsenic” on the label may just be enough to cause many people to finally quit smoking and tobacco use.

The Tobacco Plant is a member of the Poppy Family. "Nicotine" is in fact more addictive than Heroin and in concentrated forms also more deadly.


A good way to make an inexpensive insecticide is to get some chewing tobacco and brew up some tea, them mix it in water and put it in a spray bottle and spray it o your plants.

Heck, they may not even know all the crap they put in tobacco products, or what compounds the smoking process creates.

To sell more cigs, and keep people hooked on them. There are chemicals to ensure that the cig continues burning even if you're not puffing on it, "flavor enhancers", and god knows what else. I wouldn't be surprised if there were chemicals to enhance the addiction factor of the nicotine...

i smoke the 100% additive free organic American Spirit rolling tobacco. Someone here on this site turned me on to it. I like!
hopefully it isn't laden with cancer causing chemicals.

i actually read that nicotine is good for you. google it.

also, smoking tobacco itself has never been proven to have negative side effects.

now, smoking tobacco laced with chemicals....hell yea

For some reason, the FDA doesn't even want GMO labelling. But 'grits are fair game.
