Nicotine is een instabiel goedje.
Je kunt het niet koken, want vóór het kookt, ontploft het. Ook zonder zuurstof in de buurt.
En nog vóór het kookt, valt het uit elkaar in zijn chemische componenten.
Het kan dus nooit na verbranding uit een tabaksblad komen.
Lees de waarheid over nicotine….
Now, I realize that the stuff I just said is going to stomp hard on the religion that you have been taught since childhood, but there is no nicotine in tobacco smoke. Never has been and never will be.
When “scientists” study tobacco smoke to measure “nicotine content”, they do not actually look for nicotine. They look for a different chemical named “cotinine”, which is nicotine oxide.
Cotinine is neither harmful, nor addictive, nor psycho-active.
A great deal of research has been done on cotinine because it blocks the effects of cocaine on the human nervous system and is used medically for detoxification from cocaine addiction.
“Nicotine” is a chemical component of many related compounds, such as nicotine citrate, nicotine sulfate, nicotine malate, nicotine oxide (cotinine) and nicotinic acid (vitamin B3, niacin). Pure, free base, nicotine is a deadly poison, an addictive drug and also a good explosive. The above mentioned compounds containing nicotine however, bear as much resemblance to nicotine as table salt does to metallic sodium, or as water does to hydrogen.
