    Default E-cig deaths?

    So my dad has been convinced by some ignorant intern from NP (a smoker) that there have been already 3 e-cig related deaths. I've been reading and doing research for months now and all i came across was the guy that modified his cheap mech mod causing it explode in his mouth (yet he didnt die). Another one was where a doctor blatantly linked the death of a man in the UK to his use of e-cigs claiming that "there were oils found in his lung". Apart from the fact that he is probably finding excuses to not quit smoking, is there something im missing out?

    Are there actually other cases of e-cig related deaths?

    It's bad enough the WHO and local garment is spreading unnecessary and false negative propaganda about e-cigs, now we have smokers doing the same. This is something we need to be aware of and play our part in properly educating friends and loved ones.

    I am sure there are more Cigs deaths than ecig deaths.

    That is all that i am concerned about.

    Seriously, I am not surprise if there is such death related to E-cigg. Only the number and cause is a concern. Afterall, there are cancer causing agent( about 8) in e-cigg that cannot be denied.
    Depending on which side of the fence you are standing. It is not wise for non-smoker to pick up vaping, just my thought.

    agree with u.. at least we manage to change of analog to e-cigg, this will be healthier but doesnt mean that we will be as healthier as non smoker. we are just comparing it with analog smoker.
    most importantly, there isnt 2nd hand smoker or should i say lesser 2nd hand smoker.

    What i'm really trying to say is that there are people out there convincing the public that e-cigs are worse than analogs and we should try our best to educate them on the truth.

    Oh and i think he meant freak deaths (kinda like exploding batteries from china) instead of long term effects.

    We vapers know no doubt that e-cigs are not 100% safe, they are only a tobacco harm reduction alternative.

    But our beloved friends and family don't, and we should do our best to create awareness.

    Smoking analog confirm proven kill lives. And why aren't anyone doing anything to stop it (except Bhutan with tobacco control act).. All about $$. I think when they find a way to tax ecig and juice they surely welcome vaping -.-

    When I come across an ignorant fool I do not argue with them, they will beat you hands down with their vast experience.
