Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing, (carcinogenic), compounds and some 400 other toxins. These cigarette ingredients include nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT. Nicotine, in addition, is highly addictive. Increased oxidative stress from these toxins in cigarette smoke result in smokers generally having lower blood levels of vitamin C.
The recommended intake for smokers is 35 mg/day higher than for non-smokers.Caring partners who want to ensure best health for themselves and those dearest to them can contact us for more information.
