Just starting this to record and comment.

  1. Comment on diacetyl

    Yes, there are that many flavors containing diacetyl...and there are just as many that contain acetyl proprionyl & acetoin (other "butter" flavors), especially since diacetyl has been limited or removed from many 'vaping flavors'. Acetyl proprionyl has been shown to be just as dangerous as diacetyl. Acetoin is bad news, too (especially when combined with certain chemicals).

    Most don't seem to realize that it takes several hundred individual chemicals to create just one ...

    Why Is The FDA Shielding Smokers From The Good News About E-Cigarettes?


    By Gilbert Ross, M.D.

    Any clear-thinking health professional would agree that cigarette smoking is without question the most devastating and preventable public health risk that we need to address in this country. And now, four-plus years after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was given legal authority over tobacco products, the regulatory ...
  3. Incorrect Vaping Note 9 Oct 14

    Results of Incorrect Use

    As we can see, incorrect use doesn't work and has issues: little or no nicotine will be delivered; coughing or irritation to the throat or lungs may result. An e-cigarette (especially a mini ecig) is not used like a tobacco cigarette for multiple reasons. Tobacco smoke contains materials that are engineered to have an anaesthetic effect on the throat and lungs, but e-cigarette mist does not have these compounds.

    There are probably more clinical ...
  4. Inhaling Notes 9 Oct 14

    Inhaling Notes

    E-Cigarette vapor is not drawn directly into the lungs, as many smokers do with a tobacco cigarette. The lungs do not 'suck' on the ecig; a direct inhale is not used. Instead, the vapor is first drawn into the mouth, using the cheeks to create a vacuum, then inhaled if desired.

    The vapor doesn't have to be inhaled though, and an ecig can be used like a cigar, with the vapor only taken into the mouth. Nicotine will still be delivered as the water-based ...
  5. New Vaper Notes 9 Oct 14

    New Vaper Notes

    Virtually all newcomers to electronic cigarettes are smokers [1], so it is natural for them to try to use an e-cigarette in the same way as a tobacco cigarette, especially as the first model chosen may be a replica of a cigarette.

    Unfortunately this doesn't work well, as the two things may look similar but are functionally very different. One is a paper tube where the smoke from burning chopped-up vegetable matter is inhaled; the other is a steel ...
