Re: nicotine compared to cigerrettes?
Since moassel isn't (or at least it shouldn't be) burned a far lesser amount of what ever tars and nicotine contained in the product are released then is the case in cigarettes. However, nicotine is not much of a concern to me given that the research condemning it in cigarettes is so incredibly biased and shoddy. Also, how much nicotine (and everything else) contained in smoke is absorbed is greatly depanent upon how you smoke exactly. Cigar and pipe smokers often are tested for health insurance and termined to be non-smokers for the simple reason the they have no measurable amount of nicotine in their blood supply.
