Smoking can affect various parts of the body. First of all, cigarettes contain carcinogens, which are substances that cause cancer. The cancer that cigarettes are going to lead to is most very likely lung cancer. The organs that are going to be affected are for sure lungs. Lung cancer contains a process known as metastasis, which will spread the effect to other parts of the body. Hi, I am 13 years old and I really enjoy medical studies.

Why is your/the page - about the contents of a cigarette even up? It's a waste of time. People are searching for the WHOLE THING, not just some micro entry! Phooey. Thanks for the waste of time. Lay it all out! The full and complete list of ALL the dangerous poisonous stuff or at least give a link to a page that DOES have it all. At this time, your page of cigarette contents is a pretender, an anemic version of what most are looking for.
