A cigarette is a narrow cylinder containing tobacco that is rolled into thin paper for smoking. Most cigarettes contain a "reconstituted tobacco" product known as "sheet", which consists of "recycled [tobacco] stems, stalks, scraps, collected dust, and floor sweepings", to which are added glue, chemicals and fillers; the product is then sprayed with nicotine that was extracted from the tobacco scraps, and shaped into curls. The cigarette is ignited at one end, causing it to smolder and allowing smoke to be inhaled from the other end, which is held in or to the mouth. Most modern cigarettes are filtered, although this does not make them safer. Cigarette manufacturers have described cigarettes as a drug administration system for the delivery of nicotine in acceptable and attractive form. Cigarettes are addictive (because of nicotine) and cause cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart disease, and other health problems.

Short video using pigs' lungs to illustrate the difference between a smoker's lung function and that of a non-smoker. Definitely never touching a cigarette.

I'm no advocate for smoking cigarettes. But if you are going to do it anyway, might as well save the planet. Biodegradable cigarettes that contain plant seeds in the butts! Thoughts?
