Recap of the 2013 Electronic Cigarette Convention in Anaheim, CA, presented by West Coast Vapers Club.
20 of the most commonly heard anti e-cig arguments rebutted by scientists, researchers, and advocates including Dr. Michael Siegel, Dr. Carl V. Phillips, Dr. Farsalinos, Dr. Ross, Chris Price, James Dunworth, Gregory Conley, Paul Bergen, Kristin Noll-Marsh, and Oliver Kershaw.
Do you think e-cigs pose a risk to bystanders? Studies have shown that the vapor of e-cigarettes is less harmful than the air you inhale on a regular basis.
From their medical definitions alone, it’s pretty obvious that smoking and vaporizing are not the same thing. Electronic cigarettes were designed as a safer alternative to traditional tobacco smoking.
While it may be true that e-cigs contain trace amounts of said metals, they are still in compliance with federal safety standards and should therefore cause no alarm to health officials or the general public.
Flavored electronic cigarettes appeal to and are targeted toward adults. Just because we age does not mean we lose interest in the delectables of life. Flavored e-cigs undoubtedly taste better than tar-filled tobacco smoke and are a sincere attempt to keep health conscious smokers from falling off the vapor wagon.
Most of us are now well-versed with the 2009 FDA study that found a small amount (1%) of diethylene glycol, a toxic ingredient in anti-freeze, in 1 out of 18 cartridges from just two brands of electronic cigarettes. Not one study since then has found the chemical in any cartridges or liquids, suggesting that the device in question may have been contaminated.
CDC lies about kids using electronic cigarettes. How can e-cigs be gateways to smoking the real thing?
E-liquid typically consists of four main ingredients: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine and flavoring. What isn’t exactly clear is what constituents make up the vapor e-cigs produce.
