Virginian Senate Committee Halts Restrictions on E-Cigarettes.

12th February 2016

A bill was halted this week in the Virginian Assembly that would have restricted the use of e-cigarettes in public places and restaurants. The legislation, introduced by Senator John C. Miller sought to bring e-cigarettes under the State’s indoor clean air act, claiming, “E-cigarettes have not been fully studied, so there is not a lot that we do know. We don’t know the potential risks of e-cigarettes.” The bill was defeated by 4 votes, 8-4, with opponents arguing that e-cigarettes produce far fewer toxins than traditional cigarettes and that a ban is not justified. Restaurants already have the option to prohibit e-cigarettes…

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…

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…

Could the FDA Create a Black Market in E-Cigarettes?

11th January 2016

Fears that the FDA could create a black market in e-cigarettes due to their pending e-cigarette regulations is real, according to data from CASAA (Consumer Advocates for Smoke Free Alternatives). Conducting one of the largest consumer surveys online, CASAA examined 20,000 responses from vapers, all of which were residents of the USA and representative of the 2 million American vapers. The survey looked at several aspects of vaping, including quit attempts, flavors and vapers reactions to pending regulations. Writing about the survey on his blog, Tobacco Harm expert Carl Phillips wrote, “Subjects were asked about what they would do under three different…

Vapers Fight Back in Chicago

5th January 2016

Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) launched a strong social media campaign against e-cigarettes at the end of 2015, but Chicago vapers are not taking this lying down and are fighting back. The Chicago Department of Public Health tried to use social media to highlight their belief in “the highly addictive nature of nicotine” and the “toxic chemicals and poison found in e-liquids.” Using the hashtag - #vapingtruth, they have been urging smokers to not take up vaping, stating that exposure to even small bits of nicotine can be fatal and that e-cigarettes have not been proven to be useful quit…

Crucial Rider Fails to Make it to Omnibus Spending Bill

17th December 2015

A vital policy rider (which is a provision to a bill that is made separately from the basic policy and provides additional benefits), relating to the FDA’s deeming regulations for e-cigarettes has failed to make it to the Omnibus Spending Bill. The rider would have changed part of the FDA’s bill where all e-cigarettes on the market since 2007 will have to undergo stringent pre-market authorization (PMTA).  The Bill’s aim was to push this ‘grandfathering’ in date to when the FDA’s rules will be implemented, i.e. 2016. This rider was vitally important to vaping businesses and advocates, because the cost of the…

Swine Flu and E-Cigarettes

27th November 2015

A very curious article has appeared in news-medical.net, where the authors use swine flu to argue for e-cigarettes as a harm reduction tool. Using the title,  ‘Propylene glycol(PG) in e-cigarettes might keep us healthy, says researchers’ the authors compare the number of deaths from tobacco related disease in the USA to the possible number of deaths from swine flu, should there be an outbreak. They estimate 443,000 deaths per annum from tobacco, versus 30,000 to 90,000 for swine flu. They then state that more money is being spent on vaccinations for a potential swine flu outbreak, than on tobacco prevention. And this is…
