There are many examples of unavoidably normal things being used to criticize vaping specifically. In everyday life, the potential problems relating to them are roundly ignored, but when you toss e-cigarettes into the equation, all of a sudden they’re a cause for panic and outrage. Here are five examples
If you believe the stuff you hear about vaping in the media or from many of those in public health and tobacco control, you’d think that e-cigarettes were going to be a bad thing for the population. But a new analysis of UK data has revealed that e-cigarettes have led to an additional 16,000 to 22,000 smokers quitting in 2014 alone.
February saw the release of several excellent new mods and a ton of ceramic-coil sporting sub ohm tanks, using the unique wicking material to produce atomizer heads that last for much, much longer without needing replacement than anything we’ve been using so far. Check out the full post to see what February brought us!
Black Note has recently published two posts looking at the issue of diacetyl in e-cigarettes, with one covering the science behind the debate and the other focusing more on the disagreement on the issue within the vaping community. The posts are both well-worth reading – so go take a look if you want the full story – but we’ve condensed some of the key take-away points here.
Researchers are spying on your tweets, a judge in New York has been smart enough to declare that vaping is not smoking, more evidence-based rationality emerges from the UK and journalists are given a much-needed dose of common sense on the (non) issue of “e-cigarette battery explosions” – it’s the Week in Vaping.
One of the main motivations for switching to vaping is to save money in comparison to smoking. But do you really save money? And if so, how much will you save? What’s the cheapest type of device to use? We’ve taken a look at the numbers to put together this cost comparison for vaping vs. smoking.
Leonardo DiCaprio vapes up a storm, vaping bans are proposed indoors and outdoors, the American Lung Association says tobacco taxes aren’t high enough, the latest round of junk science gets brought back down to earth and we’re treated to a double-dose of anti-vaping bullshit: it’s the Week in Vaping.
If there was one rule for conducting scientific studies on a topic, it would be to make sure you understand it first. But with e-cigarettes, that is not what happens. All too frequently, vaping researchers know almost nothing about vaping, and the result is invariably a study that ends up discouraging smokers from making the switch. Here are some of the worst offenders.
2016 has gotten off to a good start when it comes to new vaping products, with a range of excellent box mods hitting the market in January, and the constant influx of new sub-ohm tanks showing no sign of letting up. So, what awesome new gear can you pick up this month? Here’s a quick run-down of some of the best options to hit the market so far this year.
This week, cherry flavored e-liquid is the worst thing since cigarettes, vaping is a gateway to smoking, nobody knows that vaping is safer than smoking and vapers apparently live in a constant state of fear. E-cigs also help you quit smoking, though, and smokers should definitely switch. It’s the Week in Vaping.
Taxes on vaping have been proposed in many states already, and as a post by Americans for Tax Reform shows, four states and several localities have already approved taxes. Many other states have bills pending, and even more will undoubtedly impose them in future. So where is vaping being taxed? And, most importantly, what are the likely consequences of taxes on vaping?
It’s time for the Week in Vaping. This week, flavors are luring teens into vaping (they aren’t), vaping impedes quitting (it doesn’t), indoor vaping bans are necessary for public health (they aren’t) and Public Health England were just hypnotized by the tobacco industry into saying e-cigarettes are much safer than cigarettes (of course!).
Vaping makes you too drunk to drive safely, reduces your chances of quitting smoking, should be banned outdoors, shouldn’t be allowed on college campuses and is grounds for not hiring somebody, if you believe the news this week. In other words, it’s exactly what you’d expect from the Week in Vaping.
With some claims that e-cigarettes are going to give us all cancer, more bans on vaping in Malaysian regions, some irrational state legislation proposed in the US, some positive coverage in the mainstream media, several excellent blog posts and a new coalition of students dedicated to spreading more bullshit about e-cigarettes, it’s the Week in Vaping.
