What's in a Cigarette?

While a single cigarette contains up to 599 additives, of which many may seem to be harmless, it is the burning of these chemicals that produces toxic and carcinogenic compounds more than 4000 of them. The negative health effects of smoking cigarettes can be devastating - just look at the compounds being inhaled with each puff.

 

Chemicals in Cigarette Smoke

Here is a list of the main cigarette ingredients that are the most noxious:

  • 1. Nicotine +

    Nicotine is the main addictive ingredient in tobacco. Nicotine activates the synthesis of a chemical called dopamine in the brain. The effects of nicotine on the body are "biphasic," in that it can both stimulate and relax you.

  • 2. Acetone +

    This is also used as a solvent to remove nail varnish.

  • 3. Ammonia +

    Boosts the impact of nicotine.

  • 4. Tar +

    Every time you smoke a cigarette, tar is deposited into the lungs. Heavy smokers (20+ cigarettes/day) can accumulate more than a pound of tar in their lungs each year.

  • 5. Benzene +

    Benzene is used as a solvent in fuel and dyes. It is also carcinogenic.

  • 6. Cadmium +

    Cadmium is used to make batteries; it is damaging to the kidney and increases the risk of developing lung cancer.

  • 7. Hydrogen cyanide +

    This is a colorless-to-blue vapor, which can cause death within minutes if breathed in large concentrations. It is used as a pesticide and fumigant to kill rats. Breathing small amounts of it can cause headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, and vomiting.

  • 8. Ammonia +

    Ammonia is used in cigarettes to boost the impact of nicotine ("free-basing"). Ammonia can be irritating to the skin, eyes, nose, throat, and lungs.

  • 9. Carbon monoxide (CO) +

    Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas which when inhaled reduces the body's ability to carry oxygen. Cigarette smoke can contain high levels of this gas. Breathing low levels of CO can cause fatigue while increasingly higher concentrations can lead to headache, nausea, confusion, disorientation, and eventually death.

  • 10. Nitrogen oxides +

    Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas which when inhaled reduces the body's ability to carry oxygen. Cigarette smoke can contain high levels of this gas. Breathing low levels of CO can cause fatigue while increasingly higher concentrations can lead to headache, nausea, confusion, disorientation, and eventually death.

Cigarette smoking harms not just the smoker but also those around him who are placed at risk by being secondhand or passive smokers. Indeed, cigarette smoking is a habit that has no saving grace. Even Smokers know about this that is why 70 percent of them, according to studies, want to quit are unable to do so. The best way, though, to take care of yourself and decrease your risk for life-threatening lung problems.

Many smokers donít aware of what harmful the cigarettes bring or maybe they have an idea but they are blinded of their addiction.

Others claim that they cannot even think of good reasons to quit. In fact, there are many good reasons. Just look around you, children are playing, breathing the air full of cigarette smoke and look even to your self in the mirror. Be aware and avoid the dangerous health effects of cigarette smoking.
