Im sorry to hear that.
But yes it could have been smoking, I would need to know the brand to see what was in them, the same substances that are used in tobacco is also used
in every day products, did the people that died work with any of the substances below, do they have any of the substances in their house, what was the
mattress they slep on made of, the dinner plates they ate their food from, the cooking utensils, did they bath in a plastic bath.
I could go on and on and on, but I will tell you something, imagine the lawsuits that would happen if you bought a product and gave you cancer, its
better to blame smoking and say you knew the risks (you did it to yourself.
They are doing the same with diabetes, saying its lifestyle or in you genes from a grandfather or something, but the fact remains that their is an
explosion in diabetes especially among new born babies.
Less people smoke than ever, a decrease of 25% in the UK alone yet cancer increases and now 1 in 5 die of cancer 20 years ago it was 1 in 50.
Do you remember the Beagul dogs that was the experiment thst decided that smoking causes lung cancer.
Thyy put masks on these dogs and made them smoke 24/7. after one month no cancer so they added other chemicals, after 3 months dogs were getting
tumours on their legs, ears etc but not the lungs, they added more chemicals and more as the months went on and then after 9 months the majority of
dogs had growths and organ failure but 3 dogs had lung cancer, The result they published that smoking causes lung cancer.
I know your freinds died and Im sorry but the fact that you blame smoking because they smoked is what we have been brainwashed to think,
30% of people who die are smokers and that is what they publish so smoking causes lung cancer, but 60% of non smokers die also of lung cancer.
Here is a list of chemicals used in tobacco, not all are used in tobacco but different brands have different mixtures.
You may be surprised to learn that some of these chemicals are in food such as childrens sweets and ice cream.
The brand I iuse is Organic and has no chemicals at all ( Pueblo), to put it into context, a pint of milk has over 5000 chemicals in it.
Acetaldehyde - this chemical is used in resins and glues. It is believed to be a carcinogen. Experts say it is likely that it facilitates the
absorption of other dangerous chemical into the bronchial tubes.
Acetone - this chemical is used in solvents. It irritates the eyes, nose and throat. Long-term exposure can damage the liver and kidneys.
Acrolein - commonly used in herbicides and polyester resins. It is also used in chemical warfare. Acrolein is an ingredient in tear gas. It is very
poisonous and irritates the eyes and upper respiratory tract.
Acrylonitrile - also known as vynil cyanide. Experts believe it is a human carcinogen. It is used in synthetic resins, rubber and plastics.
1-aminonaphthalene - in ingredient in weed killers. It is a known carcinogen.
2-aminonaphthalene - this substance causes bladder cancer. It is banned in industrial uses.
Ammonia - it is known to cause asthma and raise blood pressure. Ammonia is used in cleaners.
Benzene - used in gasoline, causes several cancers, including leukemia
Benzo[a]pyrene - this chemical is found in coal tar pitch, and creosote. It is a known carcinogen, especially for lung and skin cancers. It can also
undermine human fertility.
1,3-Butadiene - it is used in latex, rubber and neoprene products. Experts believe it is most likely a carcinogen.
Butyraldehyde - this chemical affects the lining of the lungs and nose. It is used in solvents and resins. It is a powerful inhalation irritant.
Cadmium - a known carcinogen. It damages the brain, kidneys and liver. Cadmium is used in non-corrosive metal coatings, storage batteries, pigments,
Catechol - it elevates blood pressure and irritates the upper respiratory tract. It can also cause dermatitis. Catechol is used as an antioxidant in
oils, inks and dyes.
Chromium - known to cause lung cancer. It is used in wood treatment, wood preservatives, metal plating and alloys. Those involved in welding have the
greatest risk of exposure.
Cresol - acute inhalation can cause throat, nasal and upper respiratory irritation. It is used in disinfectants, wood preservatives and solvents.
Crotonaldehyde - a warning agent in fuel gasses. Experts say it messes up the human immune system. It can also cause chromosomal changes.
Formaldehyde - part of the resin used in foam insulation, plywood, fiberboard and particleboard. It can cause nasal cancer, as well as damaging the
digestive system, skin and lungs.
Hydrogen Cyanide - some states use this chemical in their gas chambers for executions. It weakens the lungs and causes fatigue, headaches and nausea.
It is used in the production of acrylic plastics and resins, and can also be a fumigant.
Hydroquinone - has a detrimental effect on the central nervous system. Also causes eye injuries and skin irritation. It is used in varnishes, motor
fuels and paints.
Isoprene - similar to 1,3-butadiene. It causes skin, eye and mucous membrane irritation. It is used in rubber.
Lead - lead damages the nerves in the brain, as well as the kidneys and the human reproductive system. Lead intake can also cause stomach problems and
anemia. It is a known carcinogen and is particularly toxin to children. Lead is used in paint and metal alloys.
Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) - depresses the human nervous system, irritates the eyes, nose and throat. MEK is used in solvents.
Nickel - a known carcinogen, nickel also causes bronchial asthma and upper respiratory irritation.
Nitric Oxide - this is a major contributor to smog and acid rain. It is made by gasoline combustion. Scientists say it is linked to a higher risk of
developing Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease and asthma.
NNN, NNK, and NAT - NNN and NNK are known carcinogens and NAT might be one. The three compounds are unique to tobacco. NNN may also cause reproductive
problems. NNK is closely linked to lung cancer risk.
Phenol - this highly toxic substance is harmful for the CNS (central nervous system), cardiovascular system, respiratory system, the kidneys and
liver. It is used in resins in plywood and construction materials.
Propionaldehyde - irritates the respiratory system, skin and eyes. It is used as a disinfectant.
Pyridine - irritates the eyes and upper respiratory tract. It also causes nervousness, headaches and nausea. Experts say it might cause liver damage.
This substance is used in solvents.
Quinoline - it is used for stopping corrosion and also as a solvent for resins. It is a severe eye irritant, is harmful to the liver, and causes
genetic mutations. Experts believe it may be a carcinogen.
Resorcinol - irritates the eyes and skin. It is used in resins, adhesives (glue) and laminates.
Styrene - irritates the eyes, may slow down reflexes, and causes headaches. It is linked to a higher risk of leukemia. This substance is used in
fiberglass, pipes, plastic and insulation materials.
Toluene - causes confusion, memory loss, nausea, weakness, anorexia, and drunken movements. It is also associated with permanent brain damage. The
chemical is used in resins, oils and solvents.
