Cigarettes harbor many pathogenic bacteria

There are 19 comments on the Science Daily story from Nov 21, 2009, titled Cigarettes harbor many pathogenic bacteria. In it, Science Daily reports that:

The research team describes the study as the first to show that "cigarettes themselves could be the direct source of exposure to a wide array of potentially pathogenic microbes among smokers and other people exposed to secondhand smoke."

I guess this would explain why smokers think that cancer is caused by a virus. I guess they were right.

Leave it to big tobacco to come up with even more new and interesting ways to kill off smokers.

If someone sucked on, or chewed a unlite unfiltered cigarette it might allow bacteria to get transfered to the smoker. If it were lit, the temperature of 700-1500F would, I think cook the little 'buggers' to a crisp. :)

Smokers have among them the type persons who make stupid, lowclass and backward statements. The preceding post of "garbage boy" is more evidence of the type of person who smokes.
