    I found out FSC cigarettes have a chemical called E2107-90. It is added to the paper tubing. This fire-retardant chemical has characteristics similiar to abestos. You can thank the government for what you are putting into your body.

    If I were the person whose apartment was also burned, I'd be telling Mr./Ms. Careless Smoker that they can pay for me to get back on my feet and maybe they could quit such a not only nasty, but obviously dangerous habit. Jackwagon.

    BUT how can that be???? with the GOVT adding those chemicals of FSC to cigarettes, there wasnt suppose to be ANYTHING like this happening anymore. They, the GOVT told us that these were now suppose to self extinguish, and that house fires would be no MORE! Now we leave ourselves wondering what kind of Dangerous chemical they added to cigarettes.. AND how we can NOW have that removed from tobacco.
