Most smokers naively believe that only nicotine is the most dangerous substance in tobacco products. In fact there are a number of poisonous compounds that are capable for permanent damage of the smoker’s body and other surrounding people as well. Scientists do not confirm weak excuses of smokers that the filter is able to stop the penetration of harmful compounds into the body. Only 35-40% of toxic substances are held back by the filter.

  • Cadmium and lead – have a negative impact on kidneys, blood vessels, and bone tissue;

  • Phenol – affects the respiratory system irritating mucous membrane that can be the cause of cancer;
  • Carbone oxide, ethanol, methyl – damage blood vessels.
