    Yes!! I think this is key for everybody's daily or weekly rotation. Having the knowledge, to make informed choices, for our individual needs. Thanks for posting this,

    The vast majority of us know that e-cigarettes are far less harmful, just based on changes that occur after switching. But having lab research such as this prove it in black and white is enormous.

    I read (skimmed) this earlier this morning. It's a very nice study. I can see flavors being tested like this in the future. It won't be a definitive answer as to whether a particular flavor will do damage or not, but it could give us an idea of which to avoid.

    I liked how they addressed avoiding dry burn in the paper.

    Characteristically, the worst performing e-liquids in our study were 3 times less toxic compared to cigarette smoke. These liquids were prepared by using tobacco leaves to extract the flavoring, and I believe e-cigarette users should make informed decisions on what to use.
    Sounds like NET's were the worst of the bunch (which were still much better than smoking!)?? At least if I am reading this right. As stated by Spazmelda, this study will prove to be a valuable tool moving forward to address concerns of certain flavors.

    For those interested, in the story you can d/l a PDF of the study. They name what they used. All liquids were European sourced, so, not being familiar with any of them, I won't mention them. However, I will mention the hardware. They used two devices. One was a standard Joye eGo at 3.7V. The other was a Lavatube at 4.5V. A 2.2 ohm atty was used.

    Don't quote me, I'm tired. On his Facebook page, he spent a lot of patience and time answering questions for us. From what I understand, all tested to date are acceptable, with home made real tobacco leaf extract pushing the line, yet still 3 kilometers (my paraphrase) away from the line compared to cigarettes. Cinnamon is in 2nd place. He said they'd have to test every single flavor to achieve a shopping chart. (My paraphrase). All in eye, all is good so far, but that we should take a little pause with whole leaf tobacco and cinnamon even though nothing suggests a pause. It's all good. He's going to write a layman page soon.

    Hmmm, tomorrow, maybe I can copy paste his words and avoid possible misunderstandings.
    G'night all.
