Hidden Toxins in Cigarettes

Hidden Toxins in Cigarettes

I recently went to the doctor’s office to get my sore throat checked out, but when I was waiting for my results, I read through a poster on the wall. There was a poster on the wall with the words “What The Tobacco Industry Is Hiding In Cigarettes”. There was a picture of a cigarette, then a rather disturbing list of all the toxins that the cigarette contained. So, read this review article for detox patches.

According to the poster, produced by the Department of Health, there are many toxic compounds hidden in the cigarettes. Because cigarettes are not FDA approved they are not obligated to publish a full ingredients list. Some of them will definitely shock you, and after reading this list I made it my New Year’s Resolution to quit!

We all know that cigarette smoke causes cancer and that it has taken the life of many people, but I want to make you aware of the top nine most toxic chemicals in cigarettes. What will shock you the most is where else you can find these chemicals!

Toxins in Cigarettes

Acetone – A flammable, colorless liquid used as a
solvent. It’s one of the active ingredients in nail polish
remover. The tobacco industry refuses to say how
acetone gets into cigarettes.

Ammonia – A colorless, pungent gas. The tobacco
industry says that it adds flavor, but scientists have
discovered that ammonia helps you absorb more
nicotine – keeping you hooked on smoking.

Arsenic – A silvery-white very poisonous chemical
element. This deadly poison is used to make
insecticides, and it is also used to kill gophers and rats.

Benzene – A flammable liquid obtained from coal tar
and used as a solvent. This cancer-causing chemical is
used to make everything from pesticides to detergent to

Butane – A hydrocarbon used as a fuel. Highly
flammable butane is one of the key ingredients in

Formaldehyde – A colorless pungent gas used in
solution as a disinfectant and preservative. It causes
cancer; damages your lungs, skin and digestive system.
Embalmers use it to preserve dead bodies.

Lead – A heavy bluish-gray metallic chemical element.
This toxic heavy metal causes lead poisoning, which
stunts your growth, and damages your brain. It can
easily kill you.

Propylene Glycol – A sweet hygroscopic viscous liquid
used as antifreeze and as a solvent in brake fluid. The
tobacco industry claims they add it to keep cheap
“reconstituted tobacco” from drying out, but scientists
say it aids in the delivery of nicotine (tobaccos active
drug) to the brain.

Turpentine – A colorless volatile oil. Turpentine is very
toxic and is commonly used as a paint thinner.

By now you must be just as horrified as I was. Many people don’t want to quit smoking for whatever reason, but now that you know what is really in the cigarettes you are smoking, make the change to an electric cigarette! You can get the same satisfaction from smoking without introducing all the added toxins to your body.

I suggest making the change to an electric cigarette; get the nicotine that you want without all the harmful toxins!

I found the Green Smoke Electronic Cigarette to offer the best feeling of smoking *IT’S JUST WATER VAPOR*. This is meant for adults for it still contains nicotine! Read the Green Smoke Review and see if it’s right for you!

Catnip Ant Repellent

Catnip Ant Repellent

Mint plants might make your breath smell good if you chew on a leaf but having them around may just give you some relief from invading ants. If you’ve ever grown mint plants in your garden or about your yard one thing you may have not noticed is ants crawling nearby or you might not have noticed as many but there were fewer ants in the vicinity.

You could be thanking the mints for their relation to catnip. Both mints and catnip are herbals in the same family.

Catnip a favorite among cats is thought to be a turn off to ants and will send them packing to another location if catnip is sprinkled in their trail to interrupt them. Using catnip to disrupt ants is a natural way to get rid of ants without having a bad interaction with the environment. But if you don’t want to attract cats into the area you might have to limit the exposure of catnip to ants or use a different natural repellent for ants, click this site.

Ant Repellent

You don’t have to grow catnip to get it year round. Cat toys that contain catnip should work to repel the ants as well. Just place the catnip filled toy in the trail of the problem ants. Take the catnip toys with you when you go camping, on picnics or on adventures outdoors. Sit the toys around your food & drinks and where you will be sitting to help keep bothersome ants away.

The catnip might not work for all ants since some ants are more aggressive like the fire ants. And if you don’t have catnip you can try mint to ward ants off. If you are going to use mint try to use natural mint and not candy mint which usually contains sugar, a big attractant for ants.

Catnip and mint do smell different from each other. Mint is more fragrant and aromatic than catnip. Like mint, catnip may be edible to people at least certain parts of the plant but would probably taste bitter since most herbals are bitter tasting.

Catnip is an attractive herb and has relaxing and calming properties. An uptight cat that eats catnip may become settled and undisturbed. Other cats that eat catnip may become sleepy and wouldn’t mind dozing off temporarily with a catnap. Catnip put in water that is heated and turned off before the water boils can emit a fragrance if inhaled that will help insomnia or comfort a person who is tired and may have difficulty in falling asleep. It is relaxing.

Home Detoxification

Home Detoxification

Toxicity is a great problem of the modern society, that is why detoxification products are very popular nowadays. Many companies knew that and tried to gain some money by speculating this problem. That is how many detoxification products appeared on the market. Diet plans, herbs, pills made of herbs, tonics or supplementary pills are usually the ingredients producers recommend for a complete detox patch.

The problem with these kits and programs is the fact that no one can actually prove if they are good or not. Even the producers are in difficulty when they are asked for test compliances.

Fishing How To: Keeping Children Interested

Fishing How To Keeping Children Interested

Fishing is one of the greatest pastimes enjoyed by Americans across the country. Every year, millions of people across the country take their family to a pond, stream, or lake in order to teach them the heritage and significance to this great sport. However, as we all know, fishing can be a real bore to some people if there isn’t any action; especially children. So what can we do to introduce children to the sport in a positive light? The following are some tips that can be used to keep your little boy or girl, interested for a life time. To know more about the fishing, read here.

Fish for the right fish- Of course it’s much more exciting to see a 52′ musky tail walking across the surface of the water than it is to have a soft and subtle fight with a bluegill. However, this won’t matter to children as much. Fish for something that can keep them entertained. Bluegills are perfect for this. If bluegill had teeth, mankind wouldn’t be able to swim. I’ve seen bluegill caught off small red cotton balls, and these aggressive critters just can’t resist something smaller on the food chain than themselves.

Fishing How To

Break the silence – Some people enjoy the silence and serenity of nature; to truly sit back and appreciate the sound of a river crashing across the cracks and crevices of its bed. Well here’s the thing, children could really care less for this kind of stuff. They need to remain entertained, so break the silence and share some stories of your childhood.

Try not to fish from a boat – Unless you plan on sitting still. Bluegill and easier to catch fish tend to linger close to the banks. Children with a bobber, a split shot, or just a hook can’t whip a searing cast for 50 feet like you can with your $100 bait casting reel.

Fishing can truly be a memorable experience on any given day. But let’s face it, more often than not, we catch next to nothing. Give your child the best chance of becoming interested at an early age. For example: I was introduced to fishing in a small family owned pond. It was slap full of bluegill and you caught them at nearly every cast. It was experiences like this that kept me entertained and dreaming of possibilities. Have fun and remember, all fishing is, is a jerk on one end, waiting for a jerk on the other!

Benefits of Engaging a Recruitment Consultant

Benefits of Engaging a Recruitment Consultant

Finding employment today is more competitive than ever. The more experienced, educated and prepared applicants trawl through the vacancies online and in newspapers. They are able to identify and apply for the plum roles, leaving others to apply for what is left.

While many people undertake their own job search, it is worth considering the benefits of reputable recruitment agencies.

Knowledge of market & job opportunities

Consultants are in daily contact with employers and generally have a good idea of the job market and what kind of role and salary the applicant can expect. They are able to introduce applicants to vacancies that may not be advertised online or the print media, or make them aware of advertisements they hadn’t seen before. From their experience, they can determine fairly quickly the roles that would be suitable for applicants, depending on their experience and skills.

Fine-tuning resumesExperienced consultants know what employers are looking for in a candidate. They can make recommendations that help candidates highlight their strengths, producing a resume that gives them an an edge over other people going for the same roles. Sometimes the resume only needs a few small changes to produce positive results in the job search.

Assessing strengths/weaknessesThe consultant can help to identify strengths and weaknesses in candidates that can help them with their job search. When a person has become disillusioned with searching through many websites and job classifieds in the newspaper, he may be unable to identify the actual reasons that he has been unsuccessful. Seeking the help of an agency may be just what is necessary to help him move forward with his search and get out of a rut.

ReassuranceWhile recruitment agencies are not a counselling service for distressed jobseekers, they can provide them with reassurance that they are trying to help them find the right job – that they are not alone with this daunting task. Having someone on your side is a tremendous confidence boost.

NegotiationsThose who have been successful in finding work through recruitment agencies find that all the hard work of negotiating sensitive issues such as salary and conditions has been taken care of by the consultant and it becomes easier to focus on the type of work the applicant is looking for.

Of course, there are also pitfalls in engaging a recruitment temp agency. Some people find that with so many people applying for the same roles, they can be forgotten or left behind by consultants who are working to fit other candidates for a role. Sometimes they feel frustrated that the consultant is not working hard enough for them.

Others find that not enough attention is paid by some consultants, looking to fill a vacancy in a hurry, who try to match them will unsuitable roles. It is important to find a recruitment agency where applicants feel comfortable discussing their requirements with their consultant. Communication and honesty are vital in this relationship to find the most suitable role.
