    Default E-cigarettes may contain dangerous chemicals

    More fearmongering lies and misrepresentations about e-cigarettes. Posting some corrective comments might be helpful.

    This is a pretty decent article, actually, but not great.

    But what I like about it is that John Polito has chimed in on the comments section.
    And he sounds like he is bending towards supporting electronic cigarettes to some extent.

    That ought to shut Electricman up, because I'm sure John Polito is one of his heroes.

    Some of John Polito's ideas about addiction are sort of distasteful to me, but...he seems like a smart man.

    Smart and honest are both rare commodoties in tobacco control. Here's hoping...

    Best,
    Ande

    I guess this is one of those times I am out of the loop, since I don't tweet.

    It might be said that Electricman has done as much to unite us as anyone.
    And if so, then for that I think I might just thank him someday.

    Wow, this is my local newspaper. I don't know how I missed that article!

    What's weird is that it's supposedly written by "scientists" but all these guys have written is the same old unproven crap that is repeated over and over. If they're "scientists," then why aren't they using their knowledge and skills to test the products instead of using propaganda. That's what I said in my response, among other things. It's in the comments section.

    As usual, the points made in the "Comments" section speak more truth than the article.

    With all the people here it can't be too much of a stretch of the imagination to dream that one day soon an article will appear in the mainstream media with the following title:

    "ATTENTION ! Articles slamming E-Cigarettes may contain deceptive information"

    In any case, I think it would be interesting if someone actually looked at the evidence thus far and openly questioned some of the articles. There's got to be a hungry journalist out there..........
