Today I’m publishing the laboratory test results that document the levels of lead, cadmium, arsenic and aluminum found in popular cigarettes and cigarette rolling paper. The good news is that the concentrations of metals are very low in the rolling paper.

Below, a series of graphics show the cigarette heavy metals lab testing results as well as microscopy photos of cigarette materials and cigarette filters. (I conducted the ICP-MS research and took the microscopy photos myself.)

BACKGROUND: As Natural News readers know, I’m the science lab director of the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where we run an Agilent 7700x ICP-MS instrument capable of detecting heavy metals down to parts per billion concentrations.

We’re down to the 6mg bottles of nicotine, which is the lowest they have. We started with 24mg, so we’re doing pretty good. I can tell a HUGE difference with the electronic cigs. They don’t have all the crazy chemicals -only oil and nicotine, and we buy them from a company who makes them locally. The reason I quit was cause my doctor ordered me to after I was having issues with blood pressure, circulation, shortness of breath, and my heart felt really funny. It scared me. Within a week, all my problems completely disappeared. This year I plan on stopping the ecig, too. I have two neighbors that completely quit this way, and they’ve been cigarette free for over a year.
