    Exceptional article from Public Health England.

    Clearing up some myths around e-cigarettes - Public health matters

    MYTH 1 - E-cigarettes give you ‘popcorn lung’
    MYTH 2 - E-cigarettes aren’t regulated and we don’t know what’s in them
    MYTH 3 - E-cigarettes must be harmful as they contain nicotine
    MYTH 4 - Exposure to e-cigarette vapour is harmful to bystanders
    MYTH 5 - E-cigarettes will lead young people into smoking
    MYTH 6 - E-cigarettes are being used as a Trojan horse – so the tobacco industry can keep people smoking


    Please share!

    Cheers

    Where have you...ahem... Exposed it?

    I would encourage everyone to spread it around.

    Don't be a spammer, but, you know...almost. ;)

    I'll just add this to the discussion. It's long but a good read. And it appears that the UK has done some research, not surprisingly a little different then the US.

    "Key findings
    • E-cigarettes cannot be legally sold to young people under the age of 18 in most parts of the UK. Purchasing does occur including from sources rarely used for tobacco, such as online suppliers.
    • Despite some experimentation with these devices among never smokers, e-cigarettes are attracting very few
    young people who have never smoked into regular use..
    • E-cigarettes do not appear to be undermining the long-term decline in cigarette smoking in the UK among young people.
    • Never smokers in the UK who try e-cigarettes are more likely to have tried smoking subsequently than those who have not tried e-cigarettes. A causal link has not been established and neither has progression to regular smoking. The ‘common liability' hypothesis seems a plausible explanation for the relationship between e-cigarettes and smoking implementation."

    Great article... Will, (almost) spam it around, while continuing my quest to avoid social media, LOL. It really is nice to see sane approaches to ecigs, if only that were the case here...
