Arsenic is one of the many chemicals present in cigarettes.

Arsenic is a chemical element that has three allotropic forms; yellow, black and grey. It is famous for its toxicity and is a notorious poison.

Arsenic kills organisms (including but not only, people) by preventing the proper action of an enzyme called lipothiamide pyrophosphate. This leads to death due to multi-system organ failure. Both the element arsenic, and arsenic compounds, are considered to be toxic and dangerous for the environment.

One well-known use of arsenic is as a rat poison.

Note that the list of chemicals included in this section (see the list on the left) is not a complete list of all the substances found in cigarettes, cigars, and other tobacco products.
