    Dr Karl reveals that cigarettes are radioactive

    "Science guru Dr Karl says there is a radioactive ingredient in cigarettes which is the equivalent to 200 chest x-rays a year for people who smoke a pack of cigarettes every day."

    Dr Karl reveals that cigarettes are radioactive - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Interesting and scary stuff.. and I like the way Dr. Karl addressed the addiction side of things as well. Too many people still don't understand the mechanics of addiction and why some people find it far tougher to kick a substance than others.

    I disagree with that "use according to the manufacturers directions" line.

    There are no directions on any cigarettes I've ever smoked.

    I also reckon if you ate McDonalds for your meals every day, especially with the supersize directions, it would inevitably cause harm.

    The thing that really turned me off smoking is the evidence superheated particles in the smoke burning your lungs.

    It's long been speculated that cigarettes contain radioactive compounds.

    Did he state any proof or references?

    He usually does, did anyone catch it?

    We're all exposed to radiation all day everyday. Radioactive substances in dirt, the Sun, etc..
    Turn a Geiger counter on in your house and you'll get 200 hits a minute.

    .. no body gets out alive but is there any way at all that the tobacco companies haven't lied to their customers/victims.

    external radiation is a lot different to inhaling a metallic radioactive vapour though.

    quick google ..

    how much is hype .. we know that aspect exists, and how much is truth .. who can tell.
