    The FDA allows a certain amount of poison stuff.

    Did you realize that virtually everything is toxic.

    [A central concept of toxicology is that effects are dose-dependent; even water can lead to water intoxication when taken in large enough doses, whereas for even a very toxic substance such as snake venom there is a dose below which there is no detectable toxic effect.]

    Different people tolerate different substances to different degrees.

    [Aspirin overdose can be acute or chronic. In acute poisoning, a single large dose is taken; in chronic poisoning, higher than normal doses are taken over a period of time. Acute overdose has a mortality rate of 2%. Chronic overdose is more commonly lethal with a mortality rate of 25%; chronic overdose may be especially severe in children.[102] Toxicity is managed with a number of potential treatments including: activated charcoal, intravenous dextrose and normal saline, sodium bicarbonate, and dialysis.]

    They aren't.

    They will try to make that happen but the FDA's guidelines would never let such a product pass the test.

    Everyone knows cigarettes kill you. EVERYONE knows.

    It's not like they can make tobacco kill you any LESS so the only thing the FDA could do is ban them outright and turn millions of law-abiding people into criminals overnight.

    Yes - cigarette smoking is injurious to health. This is what the survey says. It is not only bad for the smoker but also for environment and person near smoker (passive smoker). Why do they manufacture? It is a million dollar question. Easy to stop manufacturing. But why this is not being done. In a democracy, everybody is permitted to follow a trade and you cannot stop it. If people give up smoking or reduce smoking, automatically the manufacture would stop being non-profitable. Through legislature, it may pose many problems,

    cigarettes are just like a poison that the FDA keeps trying to ban except they get more money off some poisons that could be even deadlier!
