Default Re: Why does tobacco cigarettes contain so many toxic additives?

I think some are natural biproducts of productions, while others are added in to either keep them fresh longer, help them burn at the right rate, or some other "benefit". As for mercury poisoning, it looks like it takes A LOT to effect you. Reading up on it quickly, it looks like a cigarette gives up 5 ng while burning, and to actually be effected by it requires something literally magnitudes higher than a nanogram, so its not a concern

Open to talk about anything anytime. huge nerd/really into video games and music. bi-curious. feel free to hit me up whenever
