What's in a cigarette?

A paper tube stuffed with chopped up leaves. Where's the harm in that?

Cigarettes look deceptively simple and harmless, but it's what you can't see that does the harm, the 4000 chemicals, many of them toxic that are added during the manufacturing process.

Jar of Tar

Every chemical has a specific job; a few occur naturally in the tobacco plant, others such as pesticides and fertilisers are added during the growing process. The majority are added in the final production stages to make the cigarette taste nicer, last longer and look better, and to make sure that nicotine reaches the brain as quickly as possible.
