We've all heard about the dangerous chemicals and fillers added to cigarettes and other tobacco products, and I just read that there is another substance that is naturally occurring in tobacco and tobacco smoke, and this substance is radioactive!
Polonium-210 is in cigarettes, and the major tobacco manufacturers have attempted (but failed) to remove this radioactive substance from their tobacco products. This substance's existence is being minimized by the sellers and manufacturers.
Did you know that among the 4,000 chemicals in cigarettes (about 60 of them are known carcinogens---cancer causing agents), that there is a substance that is radioactive? Does this surprise you?
