Smoke The E-cig? Think Again

WARNING: Here’s an item you shouldn’t include in your ever-growing arsenal of electronic devices, including cellphones, iPods, PDAs, GPS trackers and laptops: the e-cigarette. The FDA just released an analysis of 19 varieties of electronic cigarettes that said half contained nitrosamines (the same carcinogen found in real cigarettes) and many contained diethylene glycol, the poisonous ingredient in antifreeze. Some that claimed to have no nicotine were found to have low levels of the drug. E-cigarettes are promoted by their manufacturers as safer than traditional cigarettes because they do not burn tobacco. Instead, a lithium battery in the cigarette-shaped device heats a solution of nicotine in propylene glycol, producing a fine mist that can be inhaled to deliver nicotine directly to the lungs. An LED glows red at the tip and they even emit puffs of white smoke similar to that seen in stage shows. LAT

  1. The primary danger they present is to to bottom line of the cessation manufacturing company that spent millions to get these bans in the first place, thereby undermining the entire purpose of smoking bans. Also, unlike Chantix, they have no mind altering drugs and can be safely used by airline pilots, railroad engineers, truck drivers, and others in jobs where public safety is an issue.

  2. i wouldn't trust the fda its a government agency, the government does not want people to stop smoking because they loose big tax revenue so they say its unhealthy, bottom line is nothing is more unhealthy than smoking, so even if the esmoke is not perfect its way better than smoking
    wait for independent testing

  3. What would you rather smoke if you had to choose? A traditional tobacco contains over 4000 plus dangerious toxic, posion, carcinogen chemicals which is the the leading killing product that is responsible for over 400,000 deaths annualy in the US! An electtronic cig only contains 99& water & 1 % nicotine which has not harmed a single human being since it was introducted in 2004! please yhink smart & make a wise choice 🙂

  4. I totally agree with you guys!!! Since over Over 400,000 American Citizens Die every year! So if the FDA really cares about it's citizens then it should Ban Traditional Tobacco smoking before Closing it's Doors on a Simple device called an electronic cigarette.  electronic cigarette which Has not yet harmed a single human since it was introduced in 2004.  I've been a tobacco smoker all my life and this simple device made me quit smoking Tobacco for good so I can freely suggest to those who are considering a much better & safer alternative to give an electronic cigarette a try. Please care about your health & the environment 🙂
