    I had no real idea where to put this so if the moderators wish to move it to a more suitable place
    in the forum, feel free to do so.

    I had to bring this to everyone's attention because I came across it on accident and it has Infuriated
    me into writing them and asking Why they are lying to people and spreading propaganda in order to
    confuse people and generate business.

    You know what Shakespeare said. The US has among the largest ratio of lawyers to non lawyers in the world. Know the difference between a Lawyer and a Catfish one is a scum sucking bottom feeder and the other is just a fish. LOL

    Those studies aren't actually lies, the tests happened and the results are there, I'm not going to argue about the methodology and whatnot.

    Unfortunately someone decided "safer alternative" meant "healthy hunky dorey" and thinks a lawsuit is in order, but such is the way of US courts it seems.

    The worst thing about crap like this is that it will prevent lots of smokers from even TRYING ecigs. Whenever I see this kinda stuff I always wonder who's got who in whose back pocket.

    There is always going to be somebody trying to sue somebody. If there is one thing I can't stand its those scummy accident and lawsuit lawyers, always exaggerating and flat out lying. How can they sleep at night?

    I'm still waiting to see any evidence that e cigs are marketed to children. but never mind...if the lawyers can't get their facts straight their clients aren't likely to be interested in truth any way.

    "E-cigarettes can be harmful to your health"

    OK, until they receive stringent quality controls, I can kind of accept that statement, however...

    Cigarettes ARE harmful to your health....yet they haven't been banned. Go figure!

    They should shut the whole industry down... The batteries contain lithium, which requires a Doctor to prescribe ...

    IMHO, All the FDA test did was make a case against organically tobacco flavored juice...

    That crap is so out of date! Things change, for instance all VG produced prior to 2007 contained DG (a dangerous substance). Since those FDA tests were done using products made in china using VG produced prior to 2007, guess where the DG found in the FDA tests came from.
    There have been plenty of studies completed now, and more are in the works that show the actual risks, and lack there of from vaping. it behooves everyone to read these studies when they are published so that you do know.

    If there was in fact, diethylene glycol found in the tested products, it cam from China, which I don't trust anyway. I refuse to buy Dekang for the same reason. After all, the Chinese put melamine in baby formula which took several lives. They also poisoned pets.

    Being marketed to children is a lie. If they were marketing e-cigs to children, they would have McDonald's looking advertisements. When I still smoked analogs, a younger person was in front of me, and was carded when he purchased his disposable.

    Is it Really a the Lawyers who are at Fault? They just do what they do for the Love of Money.

    Until we change our Judicial System, and bring forth some Meaningful Tort Reform, Nothing is going to change.

    Changing the judicial system will take lawyers. Oh, the irony. I have a rule, never deal with anyone whose website looks like a tabloid.

    I had mixed feelings about this article. One half of me said, "these people are out of their freaking minds." The other half said, "do we really know exactly what we are inhaling?" I do agree, some of their claims are 100% BS. But, we don't really know what kind of chemical reactions are taking place when we inhale this stuff.

    But, they referred to 2 companies that I would never even consider purchasing from anyway. I really think that these articles should not be out there. This stuff has NOT been tested as it should and therefore, these claims are all up in the air. Where are the warnings and ads telling the public that BLU cigs are bad?? OH that's right, the gov't is getting their money worth on that one because it's from one of the big tobacco chains now. So, it should be safe, right?

    All in all, I think it's wrong to ban certain things, look at prohibition, for example. Obviously e-cigs aren't causing car accidents and making people eat other people's faces. So, it should be a "you have been warned" scenario. If I want to slowly kill myself, I should be able to do it. That was the attitude I had when I smoked and even if these things are banned, I will continue using what I have and making my own juice. Because I ENJOY it. I will never smoke again. The best bet for them is to tax it and make money off of it because it IS the way of the future.
