How Chemicals Got in the Cigarettes
By Daniel J Towsey
UPDATE Jan 28,2008
(Since I published this in 2000, all lawsuits against the tobacco cigarette makers has been dropped, it also appears that all prosecutors who tried to pursue this were terminated.
So I saved the tobacco industry billions. Unfortunately the fraud of added taxes on cigarettes continues.
The average smoker pays $300 a month in fraudulent taxes.
The government claims it’s in an effort to prevent the cancers from smoking.
This is just another deception.
I t has been proven that the percent of cancers are the same for smokers as non smokers.
Then we were told the money collected would go to the hospitals for the extra expenses to fighting cancer from smoking.
Again this is false.
The hospitals never saw the money.
Did you know that the cure for cancer has been known for 3000 years.
It was discovered in China. Cancer is a deficiency illness.
You lack vitamin B17 in your diet. This was removed from the market deliberately by the FDA.
A drug named Laetrile was created in the late 50’s that has a 100% cure within thirty days.
This was also blocked by the FDA from the market, since the cancer industry is a multi billion dollar industry.
Guess who owns that too, the money masters of course.)
Ever wonder where all those cancer causing chemicals come from that the government always tells us are in tobacco?
Well so did I. So I suspected that these chemicals are not natural to this organic plant. When I was working on my Uncles farm, he was showing and explaining to me about all the precautions that had to be taken in applying such on food plants. He explained that he had to be licensed by the government to use these dangerous chemicals.
I found out that his son went to southern Ontario to pick tobacco plants every summer. So out of curiosity I asked him. Do you know if there are any restrictions or regulations on the chemicals that are allowed to be applied on tobacco plants? To my astonishment he said that there were no restrictions.
Now I knew I was onto something. I also later found out that the tobacco farms are so contaminated by chemicals, that when a farm stops producing tobacco. They can not grow food items on this farm for at least 50 years (by government order)
Another thing I suspect is that over the years all the chemicals that were produced and found later to be hazardous to human health, were applied to tobacco plants. They had a large stock pile of banned chemicals. They thought it would be a great way to get rid of the excess chemicals.
Since I felt that cigarettes like food were consumed by humans, I thought that something was very wrong with this situation. So I wrote a letter to the federal health minister. Hon Minister Allan Rock of health Canada March 17, 2001 I mentioned to him my concerns.
It took some time to get a response, and when I did he did not deny by points. I was very dissatisfied with his response. And I sent a copy of my letter to many tobacco companies.
I later received a phone call from a very interested major tobacco company executive. The executive was amazed at my findings.
So I took this opportunity to ask the tobacco executive a few questions. I asked do the tobacco companies have anything to do with the growing of tobacco.
The answer was NO. I asked if they added any chemicals to tobacco, the answer was NO. So I then said that its amazing to me how the Government knows that they are adding cancer causing chemicals to the plants and that the government was guilty of hiding this information from the public.
I had heard the govern in a trial of the tobacco companies, that the tobacco companies were wilfully hiding information from the smokers. When in fact it was the government doing that.
At the time of my communication with the tobacco company. They were losing their cases in courts and being penalized with huge fines. This was all over the news.
The tobacco companies went back to court with my information. And all of a sudden all the penalties seemed to disappear. I haven’t heard, that there has been another judgment against the tobacco companies since.
Ever wonder why cancer for smokers is highest in developed countries. Because undeveloped countries (such as Cuba) do not use chemicals on their plants.

Federal excise stamp mandatory on tobacco products as of July 1, 2012
Ottawa, Ontario, May 1, 2012… The Government of Canada announced today that, effective July 1, 2012, all tobacco products for sale anywhere in the Canadian market must carry the federal excise stamp.
No person shall sell, offer for sale, or possess these tobacco products unless they are stamped in accordance with the Excise Act, 2001. Any person who contravenes this requirement is liable to a fine, imprisonment, or both.
The excise stamp indicates that federal excise duty has been paid and that the product was manufactured legally.
It has state-of-the-art visible and hidden identifiers and security features similar to those found on Canadian banknotes, such as unique colour-shift ink that changes from red to green when the stamp is tilted.
The stamp also has hidden security features that only federal and provincial law enforcement agencies can detect.
These features allow law enforcement agencies, retailers, and consumers to more easily identify counterfeit and contraband tobacco products. The federal excise stamp is distributed through a secure process administered by the Canada Revenue Agency.
Since April 1, 2011, the new excise tobacco stamp has been mandatory on all new tobacco products destined for the Canadian duty-paid market. However, for a limited transition period following that date, tobacco products in the market place were still allowed to have the former tear-tapes or paper stamps until inventories of the older products were depleted.
As of July 1, 2012, the transition period will be over, and cigarettes, tobacco sticks, and fine-cut tobacco products for sale anywhere in the Canadian market must carry the federal excise stamp to be legal. To accommodate the longer shelf life of cigars, tear-tapes or paper stamps can continue to be used for a limited period of time.
Along with the new federal stamp, mandatory provincial tear-tape markings may continue to appear on tobacco product packages. However, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta will participate in a combined tobacco stamping regime, which introduces stamps that display both federal and provincial requirements.
Other provinces and/or territories may join as well. Information about provincial or territorial participation and implementation dates will be communicated by the relevant provincial or territorial authority.

How Cigarettes Are Made
Cigarette Factory – Primary – The Tobacco Treatment Line Process
More information: http://bit.ly/b8yvEC
After the tobacco is stored and aged, it goes through a final processing phase according to blend formulas used for making various types of cigarettes. This process includes slicing, conditioning, casing, cutting, drying and top flavoring. Once this is done, the raw material is finally ready to be made into cigarettes.
Thanks to G. Edward Griffin, I already knew these things. But good post.

Hey Daniel, G Edward Griffin wrote “World without Cancer” in the early 70’s, I just praised another video of yours and now Im thinking that you better keep that Ego in check….Calm Down and Remember the love and all that. and you might watch watch?v=GGu0OLk1670 regarding Tobacco Reclaim, On the History Channel. Its no Secret.
LordRollo in reply to FolkPhotographer
I will check it out.. but it is no secret now because I am the one that researched it and published it back at the end of 1999…. Until I did that the people knew nothing about how the chemicals got in the cigarettes..
FolkPhotographer in reply to LordRollo
Hey thanks for the video link..it was very enlightening.. But it still does not explain that after I had my discussion with the owner of R.J. McDonald Tobacco company (Export A) they went to court with my information and all lawsuits and judgements against all tobacco companies were dropped…
Lynn Hemeon This is great info..Thanks so much
