12th July 2016

We are reporting this in its entirety with thanks to Fontem Ventures. New peer-reviewed research just published shows that smokers who completely substitute conventional cigarettes with commercial e-cigarettes experience dramatic reductions in exposure to harmful chemicals that are thought to contribute to tobacco-related diseases, not that dissimilar to complete smoking cessation. The clinical findings, reported in the Journal of Toxicology Mechanisms and Methods, measured the changes in fifteen biomarkers of exposure to harmful and potentially harmful constituents (HPHCs) - reported by FDA to be significant contributors to smoking-associated disease risks, including carbon monoxide, aldehydes, and tobacco-specific nitrosamines - in the urine,…

Leading Dr’s say vaping should be banned in bars and restaurants

23rd June 2016

The apparent risk of passive vaping is enough that Dr Iain Kennedy, a consultant in public health from Glasgow has called for a ban in public places such as bars and restaurants. He said, “There are new potential risks, and we don’t yet know the level of those risks. It is a precautionary principle – until we do the studies and have a better idea of what the risks may or may not be, we should restrict their use in public places” He went on to state that although electronic cigarettes were undoubtedly safer than cigarettes there is no evidence that they…

The four factors are; nicotine dose, extra costs, smoke-free environments and flavors. “If a person gets enough nicotine, doesn’t have to pay extra…

WHO Celebrates No Smoking Day and Ignores E-cigarettes?

6th June 2016

Mark Pawsey MP, and Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on e-cigarettes has written a scathing article in the New European newspaper, asking just why is the WHO ignoring e-cigarettes? He writes, “It’s no wonder that 2.8 million adults in the UK are now using e-cigarettes, 1.4 million of whom have completely quit tobacco. So why, then, on this special day, marked to advance the UN’s decades-long “fight against the global tobacco epidemic”, is the World Health Organisation threatening to derail all this progress by proposing to ban e-cigarettes completely, and, by doing so, destroy the gratitude, and hopes, of…

FDA Scrap Regulations Relating to E-liquid Flavors

2nd June 2016

According to Reuters news agency, the FDA scrapped plans to restrict e-liquid flavors in their new regulations. The FDA rules regarding e-cigarettes were announced on the 5th of May, and many believe they are going to pretty much decimate the USA vaping industry, unless a reprieve can be granted on the grandfathering in date. Yet news recently released states that a White House official deleted legislation that would have removed flavors entirely, until they had received FDA authorization. Initially the period of grace for e-liquid flavors was going to be 90 days after the regulations came into force, and then they would have…

Wales, UK Remove E-cigarettes from Impending Health Bill

31st May 2016

Earlier this year, the Welsh health bill that included regulations on e-cigarettes and tattoo parlors, fell at the last hurdle and was defeated by just one vote. Had it passed, it would have placed a ban on vaping in many public and enclosed public places, such as public transport, places of work and restaurants. The Bill fell at the last minute due to Plaid Cymru not supporting it after jibes were made by a Labour AM. Now, post elections, a new health bill will be introduced, but the First Minister Carwyn Jones has said plans to ban e-cigarettes in some public places…

Does Tobacco Control Want You to Keep Smoking?

27th May 2016

A recent tobacco control summit called the ‘Global Dependency Treatment Summit 2016’ has shown just how divided, or uniformed, many in tobacco control are when it comes to e-cigarettes. Clive Bates writes about the summit on his website, and shows a slide to illustrate this point. The slide shows the result of a straw poll regarding vaping. The question asked was: ‘The long term use of non-combustible nicotine (as in e-cigarettes) is an acceptable, if not ideal, alternative to continued cigarette smoking.’ The results are surprising to say the least - with 39% strongly disagreeing, 27% somewhat disagreeing. As Clive states, the summit brought together…
