The American Lung Association claims that there are approximately 600 ingredients in cigarettes which when burned create even more than 7,000 chemicals. Unfortunately, at least 69 of them are known to cause cancer and many of them are also poisonous.
Even though it sounds unbelievable, many od them are found in consumer products as well, but these products have warning labels. Sadly, there is no such warning of the poisonous chemicals contained in tobacco smoke.
Here are a few of the chemicals in tobacco smoke and other places they are found:
- Formaldehyde – embalming fluid
- Hexamine – found in barbecue lighter fluid
- Lead – used in batteries
- Benzene – found in rubber cement
- Butane – used in lighter fluid
- Ammonia – a common household cleaner
- Arsenic – used in rat poison
- Methanol – a main component in rocket fuel
- Acetone – found in nail polish remover
- Acetic Acid – an ingredient in hair dye
- Cadmium – active component in battery acid
- Carbon Monoxide – released in car exhaust fumes
- Tar – material for paving roads
- Toluene – used to manufacture paint
- Naphthalene – an ingredient in mothballs
- Nicotine – used as insecticide
