Chemicals in Tobacco Cigarettes

posted by Eddie

I am making this article because i am cigarette free for 7 years after smoking for 32 years.

I hope this article will help others brake the hypnotic spell that the elite cast on us since we are young.




If you looking for your loved one’s to quit smoking please share this article with them and other’s.

Chemicals in Tobacco Smoke
There are over 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke and at least 69 of those chemicals are known to cause cancer.

The list of  “599 Additives” approved by the US Government for use in the manufacture of cigarettes is something every smoker should see. Submitted by the five major American cigarette companies to the Dept. of Health and Human Services in April of 1994, this list of ingredients had long been kept a secret.




 

(List is at the bottom of the page)

Tobacco companies reporting this information were:
   American Tobacco Company
Brown and Williamson
Liggett Group, Inc.
Philip Morris Inc.
R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company

While these ingredients are approved as additives for foods, they were not tested by burning them, and it is the burning of many of these substances which changes their properties, often for the worse. Over 4000 chemical compounds are created by burning a cigarette – 69 of those chemicals are known to cause cancer. Carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen cyanides and ammonia are all present in cigarette smoke. Forty-three known carcinogens are in mainstream smoke, sidestream smoke or both. It’s chilling to think about not only how smokers poison themselves, but what others are exposed to by breathing in the secondhand smoke. The next time you’re missing your old buddy, the cigarette, take a good long look at this list and see them for what they are: a delivery system for toxic chemical and carcinogens.

Smoking Cessation Medicines Trigger Suicidal Behavior and Depression

Anti-tobacco extremists say that safer tobacco products aren’t necessary because FDA-approved medicines are effective. They ignore scientific evidence of those medicines’ paltry success rate (pharmaceutical nicotine works for only 7% of smokers), and of their significant side effects. For example, varenicline (Chantix) and bupropion (Zyban) carry FDA black-box warnings concerning depression and suicidal or self-injurious behavior.

A study published in PLoS One (here) concludes that “Varenicline shows a substantial, statistically significant increased risk of reported depression and suicidal/self-injurious behavior. Bupropion for smoking cessation had smaller increased risks.” The study’s first author is Thomas Moore from the Institute for Safe Medication Practices; his coauthors are from medical schools at Wake Forest, Harvard and Johns Hopkins Universities.

Moore et al. looked at cases of depression or suicidal/self-injurious behavior in the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System from 1998 to 2010. As a negative control for short-term medication, they compared behavioral episodes during varenicline and bupropion use to those during use of three common antibiotics. Because quitting smoking has also been associated with behavioral problems, Moore also used pharmaceutical nicotine as a “cessation” control.

Compared with antibiotic use, varenicline users were 37 times more likely to experience depression or suicidal/self-injurious behavior (odds ratio, OR = 37, confidence interval, CI = 28-49). The OR for bupropion was 13 (CI = 9-17), and the OR for nicotine was 4.3 (CI = 3.1-6.2).

Compared with nicotine (which controlled for behavioral problems due to quitting smoking), the OR for varenicline was 8.4 (CI = 6.8-10.4) and the OR for bupropion was 2.9 (CI = 2.3-3.7).

Moore also discussed other safety concerns: “While suicidal/self-injurious behavior and depression appear to be prominent side effects of varenicline, they are by no means the only safety issues. Varenicline has been associated with aggression and violence in three studies and carries a warning about this behavior. Its effect on vision, cognition, and motor control and other risks have led to its being banned for airline pilots, air controllers, military pilots and missile crews, and restricted for truck drivers. Varenicline is also associated with an increase in the risk of serious cardiovascular events. In addition, it is associated with hypersensitivity, angioedema and potentially life-threatening severe cutaneous adverse events [references omitted].”

Moore warns doctors prescribing varenicline about “…the value judgment of how to weigh the possible benefits of 52 weeks of smoking abstinence for 1 or 2 out of every 10 patients treated against the risk of less frequent adverse events such as violent and suicidal behavior that can have immediate, catastrophic and irreversible effects on self, family, and career. In the meantime, safer alternatives now exist and should be preferred.”

Unwritten is that one of those safer alternatives is smoke-free tobacco. While no tobacco product is absolutely safe, smoke-free alternatives deliver satisfying doses of nicotine, which is an important modulator of mood, well-being, and other behavioral performance measures.

——————————————————————————-

Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters. These rips in the epithelial (soft) tissue fuel the development of tumors and cancerous cells due to the constant overload of toxins, namely pesticides, nicotine and ammonia, contained in commercial cigarette smoke.

The filters of typical commercial cigarettes contain microscopic, needle-shaped shards of glass wool (like fiberglass insulation) which escape into the mouth and throat, and then lodge with tobacco tar in the lung tissue, surrounding the alveoli (tiny air sacs) and lead to COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), emphysema and eventually lung cancer.

A physician’s assistant (PA) and an intensive care nurse at a major hospital reviewed the damaged lung tissue of several cigarette smokers and said the x-rays looked identical to those of patients exposed to asbestos, and that diagnostic imaging revealed what looked like “ground glass” which settled in the soft tissue near the bottom of the lungs (GGO – ground glass opacity). The interviewed nurse said, “When lung tissue is damaged over and over, it develops lesions, and the cancer plants itself in there like seeds.”

According to the PA, the tiny shards penetrate the “lipid bilayer, then embed in the lung tissue, causing the tissue to harden and eventually lose its ability to absorb oxygen.” This damage fuels the development of the same type of lung cancer (mesothelioma) associated with asbestos poisoning. He also explained how smoking destroys the cilia (tiny hairs) that help push excretions/mucus out, and how when smokers sleep, their breathing patterns relax and the “tar deposits creep in on damaged air sacs called blebs, eventually rupturing and collapsing them.” This is why when smokers awake in the morning they can experience unproductive coughing fits and/or bronchial spasms.

(www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)

Why Fiberglass?

The cigarette filter (butt) acts as a buffer from the extreme heat of the cigarette’s burning chemicals, which can exceed 1700 degrees Fahrenheit during inhale. Fibrous glass has the heat-resistant qualities of asbestos, which makes it an efficient material for insulation; however, if you’ve ever been in an attic and got insulation on your skin, you already know how irritating the glass fibers can be, so now imagine what it’s doing to the inside of a smoker’s lungs.

Up to 12,000 microscopic glass fibersare tightly bound together, which explains why filters take between 10 to 15 years to disintegrate. If the filter were simply cotton rolled tightly in paper, a few rainstorms would break it up and wash it away within weeks. Filters are also constructed to catch the tar and the tobacco particles from coming through, but not entirely.

Although fiberglass is not the same as asbestos, it can be just as damaging to the human body. The long, very narrow fibers penetrate deep into lung tissue and remain there. One study conducted with rats showed that fibrous glass is a potent carcinogen, leading to changes in the DNA genetic structure andbreaking down the immune system. This is one reason smoker’s fight colds, the flu, sinus and bronchial infections for much longer periods of time than non-smokers. (tpx.sagepub.com)

60 years of BIG LIES from BIG TOBACCO

Independent studies reveal that commercial cigarettes with defective filters have been marketed for over 60 years.Mesothelioma, a deadly cancer that develops in the protective lining of the lungs, abdomen, and/or the cavity around the heart, is most commonly associated with asbestos poisoning, but now research reveals that more than 10% of those cases are now associated with cigarette smokers with NO history of exposure to asbestos.

The tobacco industry has been negligent in failing to perform toxicological examinations to assess human health risks from inhaling and ingesting the sesynthetic micro-particlesreleased from conventional cigarette filters. The recent “warning ads” about the effects of smoking are not educational, nor do they help smokers understand strategies for cessation at all. The $54 million campaign full of “stark and graphic advertisements” is nothing more than a ploy to pretend like the U.S.Center for Disease Control(CDC) is trying to help with this massive, preventable health crisis. (www.cnn.com)

Thanks to absolutely no regulations regarding the ingredients used for manufacturing cigarettes, smokers are susceptible to multiple forms of lung disease, includingdesquamative interstitial pneumonitisfrom ground glass infiltration of the soft tissues,bronchoalveolar cell carcinoma, andpulmonary fibrosis, which are all revealed from specific lung biopsies (HR-CT scans).

Since the U.S. government doesn’t help smokers quit, who does?

Once a smoker realizes what they’ve really got themselves into, they can prepare physically and mentally for quitting. 14 And Out is a 60 minute video download which addresses all angles of the smoking addiction, includingchemical addiction, behavioral habits, and nutritionfor cleansing the lungs and blood. No other program is so unique that fully addresses replenishing nutrients that have been severely depleted by the 4,000 commercial cigarette chemicals. A preview trailer and testimonials are available at the following link: (premium.naturalnews.tv)

14 And Out is a holistic program which is comprehensive and inexpensive, and teaches the smoker how to wean his/herself off cigarettes entirely in 14 days or less. The short course explains how smokers who have switched to e-cigs are still damaging their liver and kidneys by ingesting nicotine, which is the main chemical that feeds the vicious cycle of the smoking addiction. If you’re a smoker with a deep desire to escape the nicotine prison, 14 And Out is the way to extend your life.
