Post subject:  fungicide and insecticide residues in tobacco products

Is there any interest in a discussion of recent tests I've commissioned on off-shelf tobacco products that are popular with young and under-age smokers? We tested 5 US brands - Camel 100s, Marlboro Reds, American Spirit (Blue), Swisher Sweets, and Camel Snus. Tests were run by a qualified lab in Portland, Oregon in 12/18. I would be happy to post the raw lab data for discussion if there is interest.

I would suspect they do, but I have never researched it.

I quit smoking over 35 years ago. I was convinced it was detrimental to my health so I stopped. Whether the residue makes it worse or not is probably important to a smoker, but not to me.

I'm more concerned about fungicide, herbicide, and insecticide residue in my foods. The reason I avoid GMO foods is not the GMO as much as it is the reason they were modified, to accept huge amounts of possibly poisonous chemicals like glyphosate.
