    Statistically, with every breath humans are inhaling 5 molecules of oxygen that left Einstein's body through the intestinal tract ...

    Didn't make humanity any smarter or unhealthier....

    I read a scientific paper, long ago, where anthropologists had analyzed bones from some old timey population. I can't remember what time period it was from (some sort of primitave cave people, I want to say). They found a high concentration of mercury in their remains and had pretty good evidence it was from their fires. When we romanticize the past we tend to disregard stuff like that.

    Start a party thead, and then you'll see.

    This isn't one.

    Like the battery safety topics, I consider discussion about the safety of substances we are inhaling, and what we are inhaling them off of, serious conversation.

    As smokers, we all spent a lot of years in denial about what we were doing to our bodies. If my unwillingness to go down that same path again with vaping ( even if it feels good emotionally to do so) makes me a party pooper, then I"m okay with that label.

    I'm definitely not out for "likes" but I do like putting to rest certain myths that make no sense.

    I think this pretty well summarizes my point...
    And if our lungs can handle it fine, there is no reason to say there is anything inherently wrong with inhaling it just because it isn't fresh air.
    I doubt we are in disagreement, but you can correct me if I'm wrong.

    Concentrations of what one breathes in are an important factor. It is one thing to breathe the air in a city; while another to directly inhale the exhaust from a diesel bus by sticking one's face near the exhaust pipe and breathing in deeply- over and over again.

    If the air quality capture devices at work were placed directly over thermoplastic extruders, before the filtration vents, OSHA would shut us down, and many of us would be long dead. Vaping is directly inhaling what is in the e-liquid- a combination of ingredients, none of which are specifically made to be vaporized and inhaled.

    I won't fool myself into think vaping is completely safe. Is it safer than smoking? Yes. Is it safer than the air I breathe in at work? Don't know. The EPA and OSHA say the air at work is well within safe tolerances. They haven't weighed in yet on e-liquid.

    I never disagree with you.

    I just approach things differently, but we are both ending up at the same place though, I mean, we are both vaping.

    I guess you can call me a |vaper-with-reservations."

    oh wait, I do disagree with you on some things, I did not like DK TAB.

    Well, I don't like it as much as I used to anymore...
    So I will gladly let that slide.
