Human heart cells show stress response to tobacco smoke, but not to e-cig vapour

I just ran across this great article from the University of Bristol comparing the effects of cigarette smoke and ecig vapor on heart cells.  The study found that vapor from electronic cigarettes did not have the same negative effect on heart cells as cigarette smoke does. The researchers created cigarette smoke extract from a conventional cigarette and […]

Checking your checker

Metal Particles?

So, the latest media hype concerning electronic cigarettes is all about metal particles. I’m sure you’ve seen it or been told about it, probably by a friendly smoker concerned about your health. As with most sensational stories these days, the context is glaringly absent from most of these stories. There are two important points that […]
