    I'm switching to the Aspire Breeze next week, just thought I'd share this with you guys.

    "Every single compound used in the JUULpod showed signs of Glaucoma development and/or long-term vision issues."

    With that being said, the article goes on saying that its certainly better than smoking a cigarette and there is no reason to be worried about cancer anytime soon.

    I will personally be moving away from this device though.

    A poorly researched (high school?) "paper" by someone who won't even own it by putting his full name as author on it?

    The one and only thing somewhat unique about Juul is the benzoic acid they use to make the very high nicotine level in their liquid easier to tolerate.

    "If you are using a vaporizer make sure it is set to below 12 watts" :lol:
    Sorry but this is hard to take seriously...

    Also note that he has glaucoma in his "conclusion"... but concluded from what exactly? Normally you're supposed to conclude from something you demonstrated before. Is that from vg and pg being eye irritants?
    Then *in his best Prof. Farnsworth voice* good news everyone, you have nothing to fear as long as you don't use your juice as eye-drops or use juul pods as monocles.

    Keep in mind this isn't my "paper" or "article" a friend showed this to me and I thought it was interesting.

    Might not be your article. But you are linking. It has zero credibility. Show us some medical research backing it up

    What perfected temperature-control protocols does the JUUL have?

    Basically he is saying it can be an eye irritant. Instead of tearing posters a new one that post these links lets make fun of the bozos that write such stupid articles.

    Better idea, Ralph....what say we don't link and re-post this garbage so it never gets referenced on the #1 internet site dedicated to vaping? How's that sound?

    I've heard good things about kangaroo flavored menthol juice from Qatar.

    Yea great idea to bury your head in the sand not knowing these crap articles are out there. There should be a forum added just for these BS articles

    Ummmmm....we know these articles are out there.... they're out there by the millions. Not giving them traction is a far different thing than "burying your head in the sand". But, whatever, Ralph....do what you think you need to do buddy. :thumbs:

    Vaping is 95% safer than smoking I preach this to everyone in my life, sadly most of them believe its worse than cigarettes due to the fake articles out there.

    Come on. That doesn't even qualify as junk science. It's just plain junk. And @nicotineisbomb I know you said it's interesting but obviously somehow convincing to your because your posted you were moving away from juul in the same past, suggesting that article, blog, bull:censored: was suffiently conclusive to not use juul anymore.

    Really that's a link that should be tossed and a thread that should be staked and put out of its misery.

    Enough. @nicotineisbomb the staff has had enough of the junk links with no hard proof with many of your posts/claims. This is the last one. No more. Any further instances will result in some rather strong actions being taken.

    Closing.
