In WWII cigarettes with high levels of nicotine were put into the kits of US service men. It was believed that the nicotine in strong cigarettes would keep military men alert.
The benefits of tobacco can be seen in its natural production of a neurotoxin named: alkaloid nicotine. Which this neurotoxin is combined with the other ingredients used in pesticides, it is quite effective for the eradication and control of pests.
Another benefit of tobacco has been discovered by scientists. A byproduct of cigarette smoke is carbon- dioxide, which in high doses is lethal. However, scientists have discovered that in low dosages, carbon-dioxide in a person’s bloodstream prevents blood from “clotting”. Blood clots in the bloodstream are the leading cause of heart attacks and strokes.
