Tobacco and its Chemicals
  • The 3 main Chemicals in Tobacco Smoke
    • Nicotine
        • The drug in tobacco that may act as stimulant and can cause addiction
        • In its pure form, it is one of the strongest poisons
        • Can kill through paralysis of breathing muscles
        • When introduced to the blood stream and brain, it causes rapid heart beat, skin temperature to drop, and blood pressure to rise
        • It constricts blood vessels which cut down blood flow to hands and feet.

tobacco and its chemicals4
Tobacco and its Chemicals
  • The 3 main Chemicals in Tobacco Smoke
    • Carbon monoxide
      • Poisonous, colorless, odorless gas
      • Has greater attraction for the oxygen carrying molecules (hemoglobin) in the RBC than oxygen does. Thus, depriving blood from its much needed oxygen
      • CO makes it hard for the oxygen that is left in the blood to reach muscles and organs
      • As a result, the heart pumps harder but accomplishes less
chemicals in smokeless tobacco
Chemicals in Smokeless Tobacco
  • It has the same chemicals in cigarettes and cigars but of course, minus the carbon monoxide.
  • 1 can of smokeless tobacco delivers as much nicotine as 60 sticks of cigarettes
