It comes as no surprise to anyone that cigarettes are bad for you, but this week it has come to light that cigarettes have actually been getting more dangerous for you than ever. Simply put as more people realized how bad cigarettes are for you cigarette companies have made them more addictive. Do you know what’s actually in your cigarette?

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has produced a revealing infographic which lays out exactly how cigarettes have changed in the last five decades.

Doctors at the charity say that cigarettes today pose an even greater risk of disease than those sold in 1964, when the first warning about the health dangers came from the Surgeon General in the U.S.

The addictiveness of cigarettes has also been increased by raising nicotine levels. The report claims that manufacturers also add ammonia, which increases the speed which nicotine is delivered to the brain.

Another tactic is to add sugars, which increase the addictive effects of nicotine and make it easier to inhale tobacco smoke.

Cigarettes today deliver nicotine more quickly from the lungs to the heart and brain. And by altering the taste and smell of cigarettes, tobacco manufacturers have made it easier for people to start and continue smoking. They have also made tobacco smoke less harsh by adding levulinic acid. This makes the smoke feel smoother and less irritating.

No wonder that people are moving to the e-cigarette, where there are no tricks, no carcinogens, just Propylene Glycol (used in cakes), Glycerol (used in gum and sweets), Flavouring and nicotine, so you know exactly is in your e-cigarette.
