What is in a cigarette?

The vast majority of smokers have no idea what they’re actually putting in their bodies each time they have a cigarette. The ugly truth is that each cigarette contains more than 4,000 poisonous substances and chemicals. If people were more aware of what they were actually putting in their bodies, maybe they would think twice about smoking. Cigarettes contain:

  • Tar
  • Ammonia
  • Carbon Monoxide
  • Arsenic
  • Cyanide
  • Formaldehyde

It is no surprise that smoking contributes to such a huge array of serious health conditions, with such toxic substances being regularly put into the body.
