Nicotine can be found in tomatoes, egg plants, potatoes and tea’s just to name a few. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance and is a registered poison, in concentrated form it can kill, having said that too much of anything can kill.
Believe it or not vitamin D and table salt is also classed in the same LD category as nicotine, the same poison category.
Also, sugar is more addictive than nicotine, yet is consumed without a second thought. There are also more health concerns with sugar than nicotine.
Alcohol is an even more dangerous substance to be addicted to, as the withdrawals alone from alcohol can kill. One of the few addictive substances that the withdrawals can kill. It is not common in today’s society although it is still possible.
These are examples which boggles the mind as to why other products are easily available to the public from your local supermarket but not nicotine, those products that are allowed to be marketed and sold without a second thought.
