That has been going on for a couple of years, if I am correct. But I have a question for you smokers. Why must you ingest tobacco by INHALATION? I am not here to brag because I chew snuff and am aware it is bad too, but you do know that tobacco's purpose was literally as not to be burned and be chewed. The burning of tobacco nowadays (because of all of the shit the tobacco companies put in them), are literally fucked and release all of these toxic compounds, then you proceed to go by and inhale these toxic compounds. Back in the days when Native Americans owned land and they had their camps, before Americans took that, they had literally logged out the smoking of wild tobacco which is about 8-10% nicotine, and was also usually inhaled by the nose of these Native Americans, directly sending it to the mucus membranes by their nose pipes, and you never seen lung cancer cases back then. So I'd like to ask, why do you smoke willingly to the companies that fuck your lungs up even thought its only 2-3% nicotine whilst you could actually smoke something and not fuck your lungs up besides some sickness rarely and maybe even never get sick by using wild tobacco. It's not about you smoking, it's more about these companies and all this weird shit they put in their cigarettes and their tobacco. Tar? Who needs or even wants tar in anything that they ingest, even me, if I knew that snuff had tar, I'd be done. I suggest you all start growing wild tobacco and rolling your own, because I would not trust cigarette companies, I usually make my own snuff myself, I rarely rub with regular company made snuff.
Even though there has only been 1% of chemicals that have been found within 6,000+ chemicals and they are still studying in cigarettes, it is still disgusting to me. And I would not like to ruin my lungs neither, but I am going to post some information for you all smokers.
However, there can be smoke without fire. The harmful components of tobacco cigarette smoke are products of incomplete combustion (pyrolysis) and the degradation of tobacco cigarettes through heat (thermogenic degradation). Complete combustion occurs at a high temperature (>1300°C), higher than the heat generated by smoking a tobacco cigarette (<800°C). Typical markers of pyrolysis and thermogenic degradation of tobacco cigarettes are acetaldehyde, an irritant carcinogenic volatile organic compound, benzoapyrene, a carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, and carbon monoxide.
We used a smoking device designed and tested in our facility to capture the mainstream aerosol and developed to meet standards for common cigarettes and e-cigarettes. We followed the International Organization for Standardization standards for puff volume (35 mL) at 2 puffs per minute, based on observation of IQOS smokers, who took a mean of 14 puffs during 5 to 6 minutes. We analyzed volatile organic compounds and nicotine by gas chromatography coupled to a flame ionization detector and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons using high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to a fluorescence detector, as previously described. We trapped polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from IQOS cigarette smoke in a glass filter (Whatman 37 mm Ø GF/B) mounted in line with an XAD2 cartridge. For each sampling, 10 IQOS cigarettes were smoked. Each sampling support was desorbed in 10 mL of acetonitrile and sonicated for 1 hour. The eluate was evaporated in a vacuum concentrator (Speed Vac SC-200, ThermoFisher Scientific) set with 30 millibars and 27g until the residue was almost dry to prevent evaporation of the most volatile polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The residue was filtered with polytetrafluoroethylene membrane (Acrodisc CR 13 mm, 0.45 µm, Pall Life Sciences) before it was analyzed with a high-performance liquid chromatography device (Ultimate 3000, ThermoFisher Scientific) equipped with a fluorescence detector (FLD-3000RS), UV detector (VWD-3000), and a separation column Nucleodur EC 150 × 3 mm C18 3 µm (Macherey-Nagel) under isocratic conditions (1.2 mL · min−1). We injected 2 µL into the high-performance liquid chromatography chain; methanol/water (70/30) with acetonitrile was the eluent solvent at an initial ratio of 100% to 0% (4 minutes) and a linear gradient up to 100% acetonitrile (12 minutes).
