RECENTLY, Haagen-Smit1 has referred to the relatively high content of oxides of nitrogen in smoke from cigarettes and cigars. It was found that the content of oxides of nitrogen in cigarette smoke varies from 145 to 655 p.p.m. Furthermore, after inhalation of the smoke into the lungs, no oxides of nitrogen could be detected in the exhaled smoke. In view of the very low maximum concentrations of oxides of nitrogen tolerated (Russian workers2 claim 0.1 mgm./m.3 as an average concentration during… CONTINUE READING
