      • 100+ are known to be carcinogenic


Tobacco and its chemicals2
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 chemicals3
Tobacco and its Chemicals

  • The 3 main Chemicals in Tobacco Smoke

    • Tar

      • The dark, sticky mixture of chemicals that is formed when tobacco burns

      • Turns fingers and teeth into brown when it sticks to them.

      • It sticks to the delicate cells of the respiratory system

      • It damages the cillia

      • Tar contains hundreds of carcinogens


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
