What's This?

If you thought that smoking electronic cigarettes was just what the cool kids on the block were doing for no apparent reason, you were wrong. A prominent medical organization in the UK has recognized e-cigarettes as a much healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes (made of tobacco) and is therefore, recommending smokers to take up vaping if they wish to quit the habit of smoking.


Contradicting the popular notion about e-cigarettes in the United States, the benefits of vaping, when compared to smoking, was clearly dished out in the official recommendation from the Royal College of Physicians on Thursday, reports The New York Times. The extensive studies conducted by the medical organization concluded that the science involved behind e-cigarettes (which vaporize liquid nicotine) make them far more beneficial rather than harmful. However, the idea that vaping might remind some people about the so-called “delights” of smoking normal cigarettes and eventually make them fall back to old habits was not a concern that was addressed in the report.

The head of the research committee, John Britton, who is also the director of the U.K. Center for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies at the University of Nottingham, stated, “This is the first genuinely new way of helping people stop smoking that has come along in decades”. According to him, e-cigarettes seems to have “have the potential to help half or more of all smokers get off cigarettes. That’s a huge health benefit, bigger than just about any medical intervention.”

The United States, especially the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has always been vehemently opposed to encouraging vaping, owing to ever-growing instances of teen smoking in the country. When the CDC was contacted by The Verge to comment on UK’s report, it refused to do so. However, it did have something else to say on e-cigarettes:

“There is currently no conclusive scientific evidence supporting the use of e-cigarettes as a safe and effective cessation tool. The science thus far indicates most e-cigarette users in the United States continue to smoke conventional cigarettes.”

    E-cigarettes are not harm
    reduction because they harm in a gruesome and glaring new way that combustion
    cigarettes have never done. They detonate and incinerate practically daily,
    maiming, scarring and even blinding desperate and delusional nicotine addicts
    in addition to injuring bystanders. Vaporizer peddlers who
    claim that their machines only go ballistic due to user error, worn out parts,
    mismatched chargers or after market batteries are liars. They are blowing up in
    nicotine addicts faces while in use, not in pockets, even while being demonstrated
    in vape shops by e-cigarette peddlers. E-cigarettes are Incendiary Explosive
    Devices which spontaneously detonate and incinerate when used exactly as
    e-cigarette manufacturers and sellers instruct them to be used. E-cigarette huffing is more harmful than smoking, bringing the hazards of
    both some of the same carcinogens and toxins in cigarette, smoke plus going
    ballistic, and most e-cigarette huffers still smoke cigarettes anyway. E-cigarettes
    are drug paraphernalia for getting high on heroin, crack, THC or meth in
    addition to a nicotine fix, and when they are used at workplaces employers and
    coworkers don’t know what’s in them. The Food and Drug
    Administration must make sale of them illegal, the Consumer Product Safety
    Commission must make importation of them illegal, and the Occupational Safety
    and Health Administration must make it illegal to bring them to workplaces.

      How many articles have you cut and pasted mindless rant into?

    • PurrrdyGurl

      Since you are so fond of copying/pasting your same rant, I will do the same for you 🙂

      Sir, you may want to admit yourself to your local Psych ward,
      immediately! It sounds to me that you know absolutely NOTHING about
      ecigs! Your claim that ” e-cigarette huffers still smoke cigarettes
      anyway. E-cigarettes
      are drug paraphernalia for getting high on
      heroin, crack, THC or meth” is the most ludicrous statement that I think
      I have ever read! I smoked 2 packs a day for 37 years. I started
      vaping over 2 1/2 years ago and have not smoked ONE SINGLE regular
      cigarette since! I have used many different ecigs setups as well as many
      different flavors that I mix myself, and I have NEVER, EVER, had
      anything explode or even behave strangely. I really take offense to
      your BS stance that I am using my ecigs for getting high on heroine,
      crack, THC or Meth! You are a misinformed moron, in the worst kind of way! Take your disinformation elsewhere, please!
