Cigarettes contain more than 4,000 chemical compounds and at least 400 toxins. When you inhale, a cigarette burns at 700`C at tip and around 60`C in the core. This heat breaks down the tobacco to produce various toxins. As a cigarette burns, the residue is concentrated towards the butt. THE DAMAGE IS INFLUENCED BY... 1-The number of cigarettes smoked in a day. 2-Whether the cigarette has a filter. 3-How the tobacco has been prepared.
