Nicotine organically occurs in tobacco plants, but tobacco isn’t the only plant where it can be found. In fact, nicotine actually occurs in the leaves of some of the foods you eat, including tomato plants. Nicotine is a hotly debated subject, perhaps due to the fact that it can have both negative and (seemingly) positive effects on the body. However, because nicotine can be deeply addictive, its effects on both the body as well as the brain are largely negative. And, though nicotine is most prevalent in tobacco cigarettes, today’s e-cigarettes can also contain nicotine, a fact that can cause health risks. Following is valuable information about the nicotine contained within these products, as well as tips for healthy living that may help you to make a final choice about your personal use of nicotine.
