Nitrosamines are nitrogen-containing compounds that occur in trace amounts in everyday items. Tobacco-specific
nitrosamines (TSNA) have been identified as some of the most potent carcinogens in tobacco products. The objective of this
study was to evaluate market preparation conditions affecting TSNA levels in cured burley tobacco. The data for this study
were based on a market-preparation experiment design to study bale density and size effects on TSNA levels during storage
in Greenville, TN following the 2005, 2006, and 2007 growing seasons.
