In brief: Hundreds of Them

Tobacco contains hundreds (perhaps thousands) of toxic and dangerous chemicals.
It's difficult to say which is most harmful, or if the combination of all of them is what causes cancer and other problems. There is absolutely no health benefit to tobacco use. There are only negative consequences. Tobacco is definitely a habit you can live without...Literally!
