Genetically engineered pesticides have been found in cigarettes which are made by Monsanto.  For those of you who don’t know the giant Monsanto is the chemical/food company which made Agent Orange during the Vietnam war and is a major toxic pesticide that was used destroying the peasants vegetation and killing the Vietcong and unfortunately many villagers as well and many GI’s also came home and also died from having contact with agent orange from this from diseases like cancer.

Pesticides have always been used since the beginning of time starting with the scarecrow as a well for farmers to protect their fields and vegetation.  But in these days of high tech Monsanto’s scientist have figure out how to make a tobacco leaf have a pesticide as part of its genetic design thus keeping bugs away that would otherwise eat it.  The concept for protecting the farmers crops by genetically engineering a plant to protect it self by way of a pesticide is great but the bad part is these pesticides have a horrible effect on your body and nervous system and over time breaks down your body a little each day more till the point that your immune system is unable to defend itself thus leaving you wide open for cancer and cardiovascular disease to name a couple, which the cigarettes also give you.  How thoughtful of them.
The chemical in light is a Glyphosate product named Roundup which is a pestecides used for roaches etc, and is made by Monsanto. This simple and widely used pesticide contains Polyethoxylated Tallowamine which zeros in on umbilical cord cells in pregnant mothers and also focuses on embryonic and placenta which can lead to miscarriages, abnormal fetal development and low birth weight. The pesticide also contains 1,4-dioxane which is known to damage the kidneys, lungs, liver and suffocates the smokers brains cells.

It is said that tobacco contains over 4,000 chemicals which are not listed anywhere and only two percent of the chemicals are really listed and able to be seen.
So the next time your lighting up or thinking about lighting up stop and think about the damage that your really doing to your body.
