How is tobacco made?

Tobacco contains 60 types of toxic substances including nicotine. According to a government website working on cancer, of the more than 7,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, at least 250 are known to be harmful. These include hydrogen cyanide, carbon monoxide and ammonia. Tobacco reaches the blood and lungs through bidi, cigarette, gutkha. This produces tar (organic chemical) which sticks to the lungs. This reduces the ability of the lung cells to absorb oxygen and release carbon dioxide. Gradually the process reaches cancer.

Smoking causes untimely death in many countries of the world. About 5 lakh people die every year in America due to tobacco. Every year 13 lakh people die due to tobacco consumption in India. According to the Indian Council of Medical Research, tobacco-related cancers in India accounted for 27% of the country's cancer burden in 2020.
