Cigarettes labelled "natural", "organic" or "light" are safe

Fact

All cigarettes contain tobacco in which the main ingredient is nicotine, a stimulant, but there are more than 4,000 other chemicals (2,000 of which are known to be poisonous) are present in cigarettes. Tobacco is a nervous system stimulant that triggers complex biochemical and neurotransmitter disruptions. It elevates heart rate and blood pressure, constricts blood vessels, irritates lung tissue, and diminishes your ability to taste and smell.  All cigarettes are bad for health.
