I don't get it, at the start isn't tobacco just dried leaves which can be smoked? So how is it that we find in cigarettes substances like Acetone, Acetic Acid, Ammonia (like in household cleaners), Arsenic (like to kill rats), Benzene, Butane, Cadmium, Carbon Monoxide, Formaldehyde, Hexamine, Lead, Naphthalene (like to kill moth), Methanol (like in space rockets), Tar (like on roads), Toluene, etc.
What the hell are all these substances doing in cigarettes?? How and WHY did they get there?!
I can't understand, and I don't see a single reason why the tobacco industry is adding these substances, which are not only dangerous, but carcinogenic for the most part! Why?? What's the purpose??
There is certainly a reason, but that escapes me completely, but most of all, how can it be legal?? I mean, all these substances are known and classified to be highly harmful, so how can the US Food and Drug Administration can close its eyes over this, and let it continue?
Why can't cigarettes just be tobacco, like it was at the beginning, even if they will still contain nicotine.
Now, there are also the electronic cigarettes (which happen to be made more or less by the cigarette manufactures themselves), but for some reason, we also find dangerous chemicals in them, why??
Can anyone explain?
