E-cigarettes Study by Public Health England

Public Health England has released a new study on electronic cigarettes and it is perhaps the most truthful and logical analysis so far of the health implications of electronic cigarette use.  The study not only delves into the benefits and lack of risks of electronic cigarette use, but it directly refutes the misleading and often […]

Temperature Control and Why You Want It.

Along with sub-ohm atomizers and high wattage devices, Temperature Control is one of the hottest (pardon the pun) new vaping technologies this year.  But, if controlling the wattage sent to the atomizer is controlling the heat, then why do we need temperature control?  The answer is that temperature control does a much better job of regulating the […]

Help Defeat an Anti-Vapor Politician

The upcoming election in New Mexico pits Conrad James against incumbent New Mexico State House Rep. Elizabeth “Liz” Thomson.  “Why does it matter to me,” you may ask?  Because Liz Thompson has demonstrated that she will not let facts get in the way of introducing bills to tax e-cigarettes, restrict flavors, ban usage, and classify devices […]

E-cigarettes Could Save Tens of Thousands of Lives Each Year – Tobacco Studies Director

Robert West, PhD, the director of tobacco studies at University College London is yet another leading health figure to endorse electronic cigarettes.  In a WebMD article I mentioned a few days ago, West took issue with the World Health Organization (WHO) after it published a negative report on ecigs that drew a number of erroneous conclusions. […]

E-Cigs & Vaping, Do Our Policy Makers Ask Real Questions Before Deciding?

It’s difficult to go through a day any more without seeing a reference to one municipality or another proposing a ban on electronic cigarettes.  The discussion often seems to begin with “it looks like a cigarette, ban it!” and end with “we don’t know what it is, ban it!” In a blog post entitled E-Cigs & […]

“Smokers Should Be Encouraged” to use electronic cigarettes – Huffington Post

“I continue to think that there are ample good reasons to treat e-cigs as a class of products that are much less dangerous to health than are cigarettes and that smokers should be encouraged to use them instead of cigarettes as soon as possible.”  That’s not me talking, it’s Lynn T. Kozlowski, Ph.D., the dean of […]

The South African medical Journal has recently released a study entitled “Tobacco Cigarettes to Electronic Cigarettes.” The study tested carboxyhaemoglobin (COHb) levels in smokers before and after a two week use of Twisp electronic cigarettes. COHb levels werre found to be significantly reduced after only two weeks of use. A decrease in cotinine levels and […]

Cambridgeshire Constabulary Allows Electronic Cigarette Use

Okay, I’ll admit that I have never heard of the Cambridgeshire Constabulary.  It’s the police headquarters in an area of Britain, we’ll leave it at that.  What’s important is that the constabulary has taken a factual approach to electronic cigarettes rather than the all too typical banning of them because they look like cigarettes.  Vapor is […]
