Quotes

This fiscal year, the agency plans to begin testing the method's efficacy using actual high-level radioactive waste. "This is one more step toward realizing nuclear transmutation technology" said Kazufumi Tsujimoto, leader of the nuclear transmutation technology group
"Through the years, there have been proposed various methods for altering the composition of mainstream tobacco smoke. In PCT Application Pub . No. WO 02/37990 to Bereman, it has been suggested that metallic particles and/or carbonaceous particles can be incorporated into the smokable material of a cigarette in an attempt to reduce the amounts of certain compounds in the smoke produced by that cigarette. In U S Patent Application Pub . No. 2005/0066986 to Nestor et al., it has been suggested that a tobacco rod can incorporate tobacco filler combined with an aerosol-forming material, such as glycerin. U S Pat. No. 6,874,508 to Shafer et al. proposes a cigarette having a paper wrapped tobacco rod having a tip portion that is treated with an additive, such as potassium bicarbonate, sodium chloride or potassium phosphate."
