The reason that the tobacco companies were forced to make those awful FSC cigarettes was the pressure they got form the NAFP to prevent fires in the home.
We have a product that does just that with a regular cigarette and can save the consumer money too. Check out the site at www.smokeright.net .
If samples are requested let us know just b y calling the number on the website.

Urea (found in urine)
Rat Poisin
Tar
Whale Vomit
Battery Acid
Formaldehyde

Don't be decieved any longer, call the Quitline today, or follow the link for some facts.

I wonder whether the companies will actually turn over the results of tests done to determine whether sugars would make smoking more pallatable to youth?

It is from the tobacccco companies themselves. Because of a document called the "Master Settlement Agreement." All tobacco industries are required to make their documents publicized.

Thetruth.com has a section called the "Useful Cigarette." It explains the truth about what is in there.

Will these results compare cigarette smoke to welding, diesel, coal, auto exhaust, and all the other fumes we encounter daily?

Excuse me? "results"? THe tobacco companies telling us what they are putting into the products they sell are "results" that should include comparison of the resulting smoke to these other items?

I think you need to check the content of what YOU put into your cigarettes.

I believe we're talking ambergris.

BTW, here is an 18th-Century quote that showed up on dictionary.com when I checked my spelling (Idon't often use the word and wanted to ensure the usefulness of my reference).

"Praise is like ambergris; a little whiff of it, by snatches, is very agreeable; but when a man holds a whole lump of it to his nose, it is a stink and strikes you down." [Pope, c.1720]

Ambergris, however IS whale vomit. I think that the more common term is much more of something that would "gross people out."

That's actually quite true Many ingiedients and chemicals are extremely harmful. Tobacco is the only product that when used as directed WILL kill you! That's crazy to me! I don't know how an industry could do that!

Someday modified tobacco may be grown to deliver Meds or even as a vaccine. It may also someday be modified as a sorce of protein.(really, no joke) Won't it be a hoot if tobacco is modified to fight cancer? Till then smoking is a prime way to put poison in your lungs, & entire body. Please don't forget, smoking gives you little nastys like COPD and Lung Cancer. Bummer!!! 0>:~)

I think that "just candid" is being very truthful... However, can you imagine a tobacco industry making a vaccine?? Maybe they would put it in unsanitary containers, outside, where bugs are found in it. And maybe they would add formaldehyde to the vaccine (as they do tobacco) just to help with early embalment in case the vaccination doesn't work properly.

Honestly, how could we put our lives in the hands of this company? But people do EVERYDAY! They are addicted to this disgusting product of no fault of their own... They have been marketed to since they were little. Yes, tobacco is a bad choice, but everyone makes small bad choices and it shouldn't take your life away.

After all, the tobacco industry does this because they want money. It's all a plot for THEIR greed adiction.

Is your silly response due to your lack of intelligence or is it unwillingness to accept truth?

This is just the sort of "research angle" the tobacco companies fund. Many of the smokers' apologists' arguments include the "Scientists are looking at the possibility that smoking can..."--insert whatever positive effect you care to. The fact that there is just NO WAY that the "research" will ever bear fruit doesn't keep them from pointing to the existence of the (industry-funded) research in asserting that tobacco MUST be good.

i want to know why the tobacco industry has to be so greedy that they overlook life. its so crazy that they do this!! it aggravates me that people are blogging about their addiction when others are being taregeted to start. tobacco companies market a product that when used as intended WILL kill you... how can they do that?? im in an organization called cat (coallition against tobacco). counties all over florida are adopting this tobacco-free partnership aspect. maybe you should look into it. they even offer cessation classes too. actually, they offer a lot of things and its an organization that saves lives and really makes a positive impact.
