Are you finding Plastic inside your cigarettes? Here in Australia I have heard from numerous people discovering bits of plastic inside their cigarettes either when dismantling them or literally pointing out the end of the cigarette.

I would like to ask people around the western world to start checking their cigarettes in order to find out what is going on, and if any other Australians find it I want them to post photos.

This could account for higher levels of lung cancer than in previous years.

Something isnt quite right as there is supposed to be quality control, how can a large blue peice of plastic or white peices of plastic be allowed to slip into the main production?

I am not advocating smoking I am merely just saying something isnt quite right and I am asking people to start checking their cigarettes if they are smokers.

As some of us are aware that Nicotine is the right treatment if in a pure form in order to treat h1n1 properly rather than using antibiotics to kill the virus nicotine stops your body having a cycklonic storm and liquifying its insides.

It would also account as to why the government is trying to ban the electronic cigarettes as they are the best defense against the h1n1.

I think that at this point, plastic might be better to inhale then the chem-drenched tobacco itself. Quit smoking. If you really are concerned with your health, you'll just make an effort to quit and not worry about the minutia of your poison being deadlier then usual.

honestly I dont smoke a pack a day, and I enjoy smoking, I dont plan on giving it up since I cant drink due to health reasons, If I drink I get tumours in my intestine and need them removed on a routine basis.

Nictotine is actually also good for my condition of celiac disease.

I quit 5 months ago, cold turkey, due to a chest infection however before then I would notice certain cigarettes would pop and spark when lit as if something was mixed in with the tobacco. If you want my advice quit, if not buy rolling tobacco as that is the purest form or grow your own, you have the climate for it

thanks for the warning friend, i will make sure to keep an eye out ( i'm an aussie too) What brand have you found it in?

Cherry

Edit to add: Well you've got my fiance interested. We will be checking our smokes from now on lol. Have you called the Customer Concern, or whatever it is 1800 number? Also check if they are made in aus, it should be on the side of the packet. ( also did you keep the cigarettes with the plastic in them?)

I've been finding odd things in cigarettes for about 30 years now. Usually pieces of filter material. Different brands too. I think it is a normal part of manufactured goods...stuff gets into the machines somehow. You can find lists of things people have found in all sorts of products. A friend of mine found a roofing nail in a McDonalds burger. Ha.

I have worked for United Cigars and Shefeild & Sons Tobacconists in the past here in Canada and I know for a fact that cartons of cigarettes as well as individual packages are regularly switched out by the different tobacco representatives in order to keep dried stock off the shelves. I asked what they do with the dry stock and was told it gets mixed back in with the tobacco at the factory again and reused. Perhaps in that process some of the filters or packaging from the dried stock ends up being blended with the tobacco that makes new cigarettes.

Ive smoked cigarettes for ages, but I have noticed there has been a change.

now I smoke something 'else' I wont go into that, its medical and has no real place to be advocated on here. But as I do buy cigarettes for this reason to mix it in with and I dismantle them routinely, I have definately noticed more plastic than usual.

Growing tobacco is highly illegal in Australia you do that and they take your house for 1 plant.

Your safer growing marijuana that tobacco, and getting tax free tobacco is even more illegal than getting heroin over here in Australia.

the government takes illegal tobacco very seriously.... more seriously than illegal narcotics.

When i used to smoke, I'd find all sorts of unknown stuff in cigarettes...

not by ripping them atart, but by the way the thing burned,
sometimes it would 'POP', other times a rancid smell would last for a minute or so.
I swear there were times i thought some worker put 'Pot' seeds or stems into the tobacco, trying to a smart aleck

benson & hedges menthol & when raleighs were around seemed to be the smokes with the most foreign things mixed in the 'blend of tobaccos'

That is interesting. Do you have a credible link for this information?

Crap like this makes Logan's Run look more and more like utopia; all the bureaucratic bull being handed down to the next generation is what is really ruining the youth, not tobacco. Most people under 30 think the system being handed down to them is garbage. Generation X were the last in line to buy into it, and they ignorantly thought they could change it, when really they should have virtually replaced it. Sooner or later all the old ignorant folk will pass on and take all of their insane nonsense with them. At least we can all hope...

I'm willing to say that it is purely accidental and a Quality Control issue. As the previous poster who brought up the Tobacco Companies recycling expired cartons, that sounds like the most probable scenario.

Granted, plastic would indeed be the least of one's concerns with the contents of cigarettes. In the 599 things that are added to the tobacco in cigarettes, you have such wonderfully dangerous (and carcinogenic) chemicals such as nitrosamines, benzo(a)pyrene, urethane, and toluidine, lead, copper, mercury, aluminum, acetone, ammonia, arsenic, butane, DDT, formaldehyde, hydrogen cyanide, toluene, and naphthalene, just to name a few. Even more dangerous still is what they grow the tobacco in...Apatite fertilizer contains radium, lead 210, and polonium 210 — all of which are known radioactive carcinogens!

If including plastic in cigarettes were intentional, it would be an improvement over some of the things they already put in them.

I bought tobacco seeds earlier this year and soon will be smoking my own tobacco so no chemicals at all

Actually there was a topic on ATS about the banning of electronic cigarettes, but I can find the article regarding h1n1 no problems

So I wasnt the only one finding this in benson and hedges cigarettes?
some of the plastics ive found have been a white strip going straight through the middle, and it burns very differently.
