Tobacco, Smoking, & Cessation http://www.42explore.com/tobacco.htm Tobacco, Smoking, & Cessation
Tobacco is a tall plant with large, sticky leaves. The tobacco plant is closely related to the tomato and potato and has pink or white flowers. The leaves of tobacco are chopped, dried, and prepared for snuff and chewing or smoking in cigarettes, cigars, or pipes.
Tobacco contains nicotine, an additive substance that acts as a stimulant on the heart and the nervous system. Physicians and scientists believe that nicotine in tobacco contributes to the occurrence of heart attacks and stomach ulcers. Tobacco smoke contains many chemical substances including carbon monoxide, tar and particulate, as well as nicotine.
