    in my emissions class we did a test on all the top brand cigarettes with a 5 gas analyzer (smog test probe thingy) we put the cigarettes in the end of the probe and turned it on and lit them the machine would suck down a whole cigarette in about 1.5 seconds. we know that .5% CO(carbon monoxide) in the air u breathe will kill u in 10 minuites. the average cigarette produced 6-8% CO! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif and the ceramic filters on the analyzer, you can test about 15-20 cars before u have to replace them, 2 cigarettes clog and blacken them to the point that they have to be replaced... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
    our conclusion: go suck on a tailpipe, youll live longer.

    Well nobody I know can inhale an entire cigarette in 1.5 seconds.

    I don't think that's a valid argument.

    Wow, that's amazing.


    I think I'll go have a smoke and think about it.

    That is an amazing study but wouldnt it conclude that everyone that smoked one cigarette would die from CO poisoning since they are inhaling dramatically more than the amount needed to kill someone in 10 minutes?

    I think they would have to smoke the whole thing in 1.5 seconds to reach those levels...and like Rene pointed out, there aren't too many people who can do that...

    How long does it take to smoke a cigarette anyway....2 or 3 minutes? I guess the portion of the cigarette that is burned between inhales is the only reason people dont drop over dead? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif If it takes .5% CO in 10 minutes to kill someone and a cigarette has 6.0-8.0% CO it has 12-16X the CO to kill a human correct? Its just that its inhaled slowly and all of it doesnt reach the lungs.....or am I completely off base here /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I do emissions testing for work I test power plants, ethonal plants.ect. and I use a 5 sensor model as well and I smoke,Its fun you dont want to know all the stuff that can kill coming from them things, I think your body builds a tolerance to the crap like people in LA look at all the smog in the air out there

    6-10 minutes to smoke a cigarette...and the majority of that time is not spent inhaling it. For grins I just counted and I get about 9 drags off a smoke in the time it takes me to smoke one...average drag is roughly 3 seconds. I'm not dead... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Yeah, they're not healthy...but testing a smoke as stated is like judging a car's safety by dropping a lit match in the filler neck of the gas tank. You're just not gonna get an accurate read from the data you're getting.

    Maybe not, but I think the 5 million tobacco linked deaths a year worldwide might be a good one.
