Is nicotine bad?
Scientists don't doubt that nicotine is highly addictive, but many wonder if a daily dose could be as innocuous as the caffeine many of us get from our morning coffee or tea. The NHS website suggests, "While nicotine is the addictive substance in cigarettes, it's relatively harmless. Almost all of the harm from smoking comes from seven thousand chemicals in tobacco smoke, many of which are toxic."
Some studies show that nicotine, like caffeine, can even have potentially positive effects. It's a stimulant that raises the heart rate and increases information processing speed, reducing tension and sharpening the mind. However, its addictive qualities should not be overlooked.
Can nicotine kill you?
