(an important revelation from MAYBE…)
Some of the substances currently allowed in the manufacturing of cigarettes sold in the United States are fairly common such as ammonia, butter, caffeine, chocolate, coffee, ethyl alcohol, grape juice concentrate, honey, lavender oil, peppermint oil, pineapple juice concentrate, plum juice, rum, spearmint oil, sugars, urea, vanilla extract, vinegar, wheat flour, wine, and yeast.
While some of these substances might seem harmless and others might seem utterly disgusting, it is important to understand that chemical changes occur to the entire mixture as it smolders within a tobacco cigarette. Many studies, conducted by various organizations around the world, strongly suggest that cigarette smoke generally consists of thousands of chemicals including a number of carcinogens, substances that directly cause or promote various forms of cancer. Maybe you have heard of some of the very toxic chemicals commonly present in cigarette smoke such as acetone, arsenic, benzene, butane, cadmium, carbon monoxide, chloroform, copper, DDT, formaldehyde, hydrogen cyanide, lead, mercury, methane, and nickel.
