Irresponsible Media Reporting Regarding Chemicals Found in E-Cigarettes.

5th February 2016

Even the authors of the study tried to prevent it from being misrepresented. Recent media reports regarding the finding of benzaldehyde, an organic compound found in many flavorings, but in this case specifically in cherry e-liquid has been found to be misrepresented. Discussing the findings, the American Vaping Association has written a very good article outlining just where the media went wrong with this. This is in spite of the authors highlighting quite significantly that the levels of benzaldehyde were >1000 times lower than doses inhaled in the workplace. As the AVA are very keen to point out – the poison is in…

Is Leo’s Vape Habit Deeply Troubling?

5th February 2016

DiCaprio vapes loud and proud. Personally, I find the headlines deeply troubling. That someone – in this case a major actor - has taken the steps to stop smoking a product that kills 1:2 of its users, and is instead using a product that is 95% safer – yet is derided in the press; one has to ask why the hysteria? Is it because he was vaping loud and proud and the puritans in power don’t like this? Does it make it too mainstream? Will millions of non-smoking Leonardo DiCaprio fans now rush to their nearest vape shop and stock up? Not according…

Teenagers, E-Cigarettes and More Junk Science?

29th January 2016

Experts suggest Dr. Wills study produced unrealistic results. Yet another study has emerged claiming this time “that teenagers who use the devices are more likely to smoke standard cigarettes a year later”. E-cigarette use is increasing amongst teenagers, that is not under dispute, but this does need to be put squarely into context, and that is that at the same time, smoking rates amongst teens is falling dramatically. The above mentioned study, conducted by Dr. Wills and colleagues of the University of Hawaii Cancer Center in Honolulu, “surveyed 2,338 high school students of an average age of 14.7 years. The students were asked…

The US Makes Childproof Packaging for E-Liquid the Law

20th January 2016

A new bill is passed and awaiting signature. The USA is finally catching up with the UK, and is in the process of passing a bill requiring all e-liquids to be sold in childproof bottles. Congress has passed the bill and now it only requires the President’s signature. Called the Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act, it is intended to keep children safer. The move has been welcomed by Vaping groups, "it is common sense," Cynthia Cabrera, president of the Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Associations said, "These are adult products and should be treated like adult products." Heath officials and consumer advocates have been concerned for a…

E-Cigarettes, Your Weight and Your Blood Pressure

18th January 2016

High blood pressure is generally associated with smoking, but if you dig a little into the research, you find that it’s not that black and white. It seems to be more due to a complex mixture of smoking, plus alcohol intake and your own personal BMI. A very recent study (that we will explore further in this post) states pretty much the same thing, that “the epidemiological evidence is not unequivocal, with some studies showing lower BP (blood pressure) values in smokers compared with non-smokers, others reporting no association between smoking habit and blood pressure, and a few others showing that smoking…

Liam’s Lab – 18/01/15 – Pete’s E-liquid Lab

18th January 2016

Misleading Headlines Can Leave Lasting Impressions. Hello Totally Wicked customers. For my newsletter contribution this month I wanted to share with you a conversation I had down at my local bar! I was watching a football match with friends and one of them was using his electronic cigarette. My other friend said to him, “they’re just as dangerous as smoking, didn’t you read the headlines last week!” I knew which headlines he was referring to, and unlike him, I had read the scientific paper they purported to represent. They know that I work in the vaping industry so it was left…

The War on E-Cigarettes

15th January 2016

Is Big Tobacco being Protected? So says one of the worlds’ leading anti tobacco campaigners. Adjunct professor of law at the University of Ottowa and special lecturer with the division of epidemiology and public health at the University of Nottingham, David Sweanor. A man that has spent more than 30 years fighting tobacco. Being interviewed on Regulator watch, David Sweanor said, “There’s a very strong abstinence-only part of what’s going on in the anti-smoking movement. I think it’s one of the most counter-productive things that we’ve ever seen. “We’ve known for decades people smoke for the nicotine, they die from the tar, they die…

The CDC, Adverts and Teenagers; What’s Really Going On?

11th January 2016

News feeds this past week have been full of headlines about the CDC stating that e-cigarette adverts are being heavily targeted at teenagers. From this they are stating their belief and concern that these adverts will lead children to start vaping, and ultimately lead them to start smoking tobacco. The numbers in the CDC study look pretty impressive, with 22,007 participants and from which, the CDC extrapolate that 18.3 million American school-aged children are exposed to e-cigarette advertising. The CDC has looked at where the advertising is – retail, TV, magazine, etc., and at how often the children are exposed to…
