Smokey Smokerson

I was reading a news article today and a study case about second-hand smoking, and it turned out that it can be in fact more dangerous than first hand smoking!

Apparently, when a cigarrette is lit, the fumes produced contain about some 200 chemicals – only 20% of which are inhaled by the smoker and the rest probably by everyone else in the room. Yup, that’s us non-smokers.

Some of the chemicals contained in the fumes include:
Carbon monoxide (found in car exhausts)
Arsenic (rat poison)
Ammonia (window cleaner)
Acetone (nail polisher)
Hydrogen cyanide (gas chamber poison)
Napthaline (your grandma’s mothballs)
Sulphur (math stick – yellow flames)
Formaldehyde (embalming fluid)
Butane (lighter liquid)

And I thought I was healthy!
