    Default Stop the FDA from banning Electronic Ciagrettes


    Did you know that around 45.9 million American adults smoke cigarettes? It's true! And, each day, many of them put out what they hope will be their last cigarette, only to light one up the next morning! Those who want to quit smoking need all the help they can get. Electronic Cigarettes, which are Alternatives to smoking, are an effective way to help break the cigarette-smoking cycle. But if the FDA has their way, electronic cigarettes will be made illegal. That's where you come in!


    Did you know that electronic cigarettes contain propylene glycol, which has been found by Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson to be an effective agent in helping to kill the germs that spread pneumonia, influenza and other respiratory diseases? Why would anyone in their right mind want to ban these potentially life saving devices!?


    Together, we can help fight to keep electronic cigarettes legal. We are in the process of forming an organization to fight for the continued legalization of electronic cigarettes. But we can't do it without your help.


    You have probably heard before that secondhand smoke, or environmental tobacco smoke, is harmful to one's health. But did you realize that secondhand cigarette smoke contains more than 60 substances that can cause cancer? It's true, according to the American Cancer Society. This is one major reason why electronic cigarettes should be legal throughout the country. Why? Because electronic cigarettes do not emit environmental, or secondhand, smoke. So the public health benefits of electronic cigarettes are vast!


    The benefits of keeping electronic cigarettes legal speak for themselves:


    They help the cigarette smoker to maintain the 'ritual" that they crave by smoking, yet do not contain all the same harmful ingredients.There is no secondhand cigarette smoke to harm the public.Electronic cigarettes will not litter the streets in the manner that regular cigarettes do, causing pollution.Fire-related accidents from cigarette smoking will be eliminated, because there is no fire involved. According to the National Institutes of Health, smoking is the leading cause of residential fire deaths.Electronic cigarettes contain a germicide vapor, called propylene glycol, which has been found by Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson to be an effective in helping to kill the germs that spread pneumonia, influenza and other respiratory diseases.Purchasing electronic cigarettes helps the smoker save money, over time.


    We hope you will agree with us that we need to keep electronic cigarettes legal. We need to stop the ban on them, and create an organization to set industry standards and guidelines to help reduce the FDA's power in regulating them. Are you ready to take part in helping to keep electronic cigarettes legal?

    Sign our petition today to show your support for keeping electronic cigarettes legal.

    It's time to be part of the solution!

    I like this.

    One comment:

    In the second to last paragraph, I would suggest deleting the re-statement that: "Electronic cigarettes contain a germicide vapor, called propylene glycol, which has been found by Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson to be an effective in helping to kill the germs that spread pneumonia, influenza and other respiratory diseases.Purchasing electronic cigarettes helps the smoker save money, over time."

    You already state this above; looks like it was inadvertently re-pasted a second time. Sorry of this is nitpicky...I've been reviewing reports all day.

    Thank you for your correction, and support... I would edit my post, but I do not seem to be able to. However, I did mistype this. It should be bullet-ed as such;

    The benefits of keeping electronic cigarettes legal speak for themselves:
    • They help the cigarette smoker to maintain the “ritual” that they crave by smoking, yet do not contain all the same harmful ingredients.
    • There is no secondhand cigarette smoke to harm the public.
    • Electronic cigarettes will not litter the streets in the manner that regular cigarettes do, causing pollution.
    • Fire-related accidents from cigarette smoking will be eliminated, because there is no fire involved. According to the National Institutes of Health, smoking is the leading cause of residential fire deaths.
    • Electronic cigarettes contain a germicide vapor, called propylene glycol, which has been found by Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson to be an effective in helping to kill the germs that spread pneumonia, influenza and other respiratory diseases.
    • Purchasing electronic cigarettes helps the smoker save money, over time.

    thanks for posting the link. It'd be helpful if you could define "our petition", and tell us a little about Change.org. There are actually a few petitions (like the one at the bottom of my signature).

    Oh, and welcome to ECF!

    I wouldn't mention the germicide vapor. The FDA is a ponderous organization who will drag this out by investigating those claims itself. Just as ecigs cannot be sold as stop smoking devices the same rule applies, any and all claims are throughly investigated and this takes time, lots of time. We know what ecigs can do, we need to focus on them being a safe alternative to smoking. Your points on safety are dead on especially the fire hazard. Of course the lack of second hand smoke is the biggest selling point for me as well as not causing cancer. Just a few things to mull over.

    I like the post, but I would find a synonym for "germicide". It makes me think of bug spray. No one wants that mental picture when you are vaping into the air around them (grin).

    PG has been introduced into hospital air handling units to keep germs down. It cleans the air by the microscopic droplets of PG merging with water droplets from sneezes. The Doctor in the article below believes that a gas that is given off by the PG somehow affects water droplets and the germs in them die. It's obviously not toxic to humans since we breathe massive amounts of it and feel great.

    From a Time magazine article:
    How did it work? Respiratory disease bacteria float about in tiny droplets of water breathed, sneezed and coughed from human beings. The germicidal glycol also floats in infinitesimally small particles. Calculations showed that if droplet had to hit droplet, it would take two to 200 hours for sterilization of sprayed air to take place. Since sterilization took place in seconds, Dr. Robertson concluded that the glycol droplets must give off gas molecules which dissolve in the water droplets and kill the germs within them.

    I just don't see how the FDA could ban it. I live in the US if they ban it and try to regulate it I will just buy it from another country where it isnt banned.
