Pipe tobacco and tar

Often advertisements list how much milligrams of tar and nicotine is present per cigarette by FTC method (?)

How much in the average bowlful of pipe tobacco?
Per Cigar?

Don't know the answer, but whatever it is, the effect is usually lower, because many, if not most, pipe and cigar smokers (including this one) don't inhale the smoke into their lungs.
