Radioactive Cigarrete

Updated on May 21, 2012

The more dangerous smoke

You need one more reason to quit smoking. So here it goes. The biggest reason of all and also the reason that has been hidden from public eyes by the big companies.

Every smoke you inhale is radioactive. Yes I am not joking. Every cigarette smoke has traces of polonium 210. You might be still remembering this name "polonium 210" which killed the ex KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko.Now where does the tobacco get this polonium 210 from the natural radioactivity in fertilizers.

Once it goes into our body, it gets deposited into our lungs and thus we will be getting exposed to radiations which is equivalent to hundreds of Chest X-rays that you take once a year. No wonder why smokers get cancer so fast than non-smokers. Not only this, this can cause gene mutations which might make your future kids physically or mentally disabled.

This whole news has been kept as a secret by the big shots of tobacco industry. It our own self control which can help our self and our family to prevent any ill effect's of smoking.

So Next time when you plan to grab a pack of cigarette, think whether you really need it. Maybe you can spend that money on yourself or your family or at least on charity

      Now that's scray stuff! On top of everything else. How nice it would be if I gave all my cigarette money to charity instead of cigarette companies. Voted up.

      I smoke and think that the pollonium information is news to me. That will kill me if the nicotine and tar don't get me first.

      Don't smoke either! Another great informative article. Here's a copy posted at my HUB. Hi Alex. I read your aricle on tead and it was a good one. I was a mobile DJ for two decades and loved it. You will do well to put on a terrific show and earn good money. Check out my DJ story called "Paint me a Promise and A Hundred Bucks" and you and I will be buddies forever.

      Hi,

      I liked you article very much.

      I use to be a smoker and give up around 10 years ago. So glad I did. I work in a hospital in the UK and see smoke related patients admitted because of breathing problems or lung cancers, strokes and heart disease.

      I sincerely hope that anyone who smokes and reads your article will perhaps be swayed to think about giving up.

      Have a lovely day,

      Jan
