4. good point, although
I think that a big distinction is that most people, by now, know that cigarettes are harmful to you.

But when you purchase toothpaste or cough syrup or even pet food, you don't even imagine that there would be any danger with ingesting it. You are trusting that the ingredients are all harmless and straightforward.

And the saddest part is that most of the "substitutions" in the Chinese products were to substitute cheaper ingredients so that more profit could be made.

At least our cancer sticks are all natural carcinogenics. :sarcasm:

Yep, no need for substitutions, they are dangerous enough by their own merit.
