    Love that the author took quotes from Mitch Zeller and the AHA and made them look pro vaping!:lol:

    Ok just finished, this is a good one. It looks at formaldehyde, PL and the gateway theory. It uses the CDC's own figures to disprove the gateway theory and dismisses the PL theory and makes the formaldehyde researchers look like doofus's. Me thinks this author is a vaper. ;)

    Note that the author uses the term "nicotine-infused", not the usual "nicotine-laced" with heavy negative connotations, that is typically seen in anti-vaping hit pieces ...

    As soon as I saw this, I knew the article was worth reading through to the end ... :D

    Excellent article. Thanks for posting the link, bifff257.
    I loved it that the article dealt extremely well with debunking soooooo many of the scare tactics anti-smoking groups have used against e-cigarettes over the past several years.

    My one minor quibble with the article were several references to nicotine being addictive. Nicotine continues to get an undeserved bad rap because of its association with combustible cigarettes.

    I wish the author could have delved deeper into what's known to date regarding the relative non-addictiveness of nicotine alone. One small example...Dr. Newhouse's research at Vanderbilt.

    From Dr. Newhouse's study, using nicotine patches for six months:

    Nicotine treatment of mild cognitive impairment: A 6-month double-blind pilot clinical trial

    Nicotine treatment of mild cognitive impairment
    A 6-month double-blind pilot clinical trial
    P. Newhouse, MD et al

    [A few excerpts:]

    Methods:
    Nonsmoking subjects with amnestic MCI were randomized to transdermal nicotine (15 mg per day or placebo) for 6 months.

    Discussion:
    There was no withdrawal syndrome and no subjects continued to use nicotine products.

    To simplify dose-ranging only nonsmokers were tested.
