Vuse is World’s 1st Digital Vapor Cigarette

Even the throat hit, made me cough a bit, it was quite powerful. The problem was I couldn’t get past the chemical taste of the vapor. It tasted even more strange and chemical-y than the odd taste of the Logic eCig. I vaped on the Traditional throughout the course of a day, and I have to admit, my tummy got a little queasy.

Electronic cigarettes could rekindle battles over smoking in public

So far, e-cigarettes aren’t widely regulated. In 2012, Minnesota passed a law banning the sale of e-cigarettes to minors. But, in part because e-cigarettes don’t burn anything, they haven’t been legally prohibited in public places. However, the electronic cigarettes have been banned in K-12 schools in the state and some colleges and universities also have moved to ban them. The Lung Association’s Moffitt hopes legal measures will be taken to ban e-cigarettes in public places before they become more common. “Maybe we need to put the kibosh on these right now,” he said.

Electronic Cigarettes: More Dangerous Than the Industry Wants You to Think?

Analysts expected $1.28 billion. Its shares rose 41 cents to $44.82 in morning trading Thursday. Most tobacco companies have been raising prices and cutting costs to keep profits up as the recession and declining demand cut into cigarette sales. Tax increases, smoking bans, health concerns and social stigma also have made the cigarette business tougher. Lorillard, based in Greensboro, N.C., says its cigarette shipments fell about 2 percent to 10.44 billion cigarettes. Adjusting for trade inventory changes, Lorillard says its cigarette volumes were flat during the quarter, compared with a total industry decline of more than 4 percent.

Cigarette maker Lorillard’s 2Q profit up 10 pct on higher pricing, e-cig sales, lower costs

One thing is for sure: despite what manufacturers may claim, the primary byproduct of electronic cigarettes isnt a harmless water vapor. In an interview with Scientific American , Stanton Glantz noted a number of nasties that users inhaled directly, including acetaldehyde, nickel and cadmium. Like their conventional counterparts, electronic cigarettes also produce secondhand smoke, inhaled by both the user and people around her. Every puff comes with a load of formaldehyde, toluene and, of course, nicotine. After spending years fighting to get these chemicals Cigarettes: A Top out of indoor environments and away from children, the United States seems poised to reintroduce them through the unregulated sale and use of electronic cigarettes. While they might offer a way for nicotine addicts to get their fix (and some researchers note that e-cigs themselves could be addictive), its not necessarily a safe way for them or anyone else. The FDA has no regulatory framework in place for handling them.

Electronic Cigarettes — Let’s Think Before We Inhale

Today one in six Americans already have the disease of addiction — that’s more than the number with heart disease, diabetes or cancer. Another 80 million engage in substance use in ways that threaten health and safety. Addiction and risky substance use is the largest preventable and most costly health problem in the U.S. today.

Booming E-cigarette industry raises questions on safety, regulation

Can PH regulate its e-cigarette industry?

Hover over YES and NO to see FDA regulatory considerations

I don’t know if this is non toxic,'” Schachter told Glor. The Food and Drug Administration does not currently regulate e-cigarettes, therefore manufactures are not mandated to disclose the ingredients. Most major brands boast a similar list of ingredients: Nictone, water, artificial flavoring, glycerol, and propylene glycol, the ingredient that creates the exhaled imitation smoke. The FDA has consistently promised to propose regulatory guidelines for e-cigarettes and while the organiation declined to speak to CBS News on camera, they issues this statement: “Further research is needed to http://poundquanlato.soup.io/post/328377885/Real-world-Plans-For-Electric-Cig-Described assess the potential public health benefits and risks of electronic cigarettes and other novel tobacco products.” The research could take years according to Erika Sward, of the American Lung Association “We are very concerned that there is literally no federal oversight of these products.

The E-Cigarette Page Reports Continued Popularity of Electronic Cigarettes

Filipinos have started creating ENDs or e-cigarettes from everyday household materials, such as flashlights and empty gum containers. Since e-juice content is mostly food additives coming from bakery supplies, some mix their own e-juices. These DIY e-cigarettes would be nearly impossible to regulate, said Dr Hartigan-Go. (4) Lack of scientific consensus “How will you regulate something you know nothing of in terms of its safety profile?” asked Hartigan-Go. There is currently a lack of scientific consensus globally with studies contradicting each other and scientists rebutting each others claims regarding the safety, benefits and harms of e-cigarettes. The “Efficiency and Safety of an Electronic Cigarette as Tobacco Cigarettes Substitute” or ECLAT concluded after a 12-month study of a group of smokers made to use the device that, e-cigerattes helped reduce tobacco use.

E-cigarette, shisha ban eyed

Officials from the E-Cigarette Page have now said that they continue to grow in popularity despite the backlash from traditional tobacco companies. The E-Cigarette Page is a one stop resource for fans of these electronic cigarettes, providing news, blogs, e-cigarette reviews , and purchasing access for those who want to learn more about various brands or wish to find the best e-cigarette for their needs. The company said that more and more people are benefiting from the use of these e-cigarettes, with some turning to the devices as an alternative to traditional smoking rather than in addition to it. An official from the E-Cigarette Page said: “We have continued to see a marked increase in the popularity of these e-cigarettes, which has been further boosted by the ever increasing range of high quality devices available from a number of manufacturers.

“The committee will also verify claims that e-cigarettes may help smokers to quit the habit,” he said. Noor Hisham said the ministry would then decide based on the scientific report on whether to ban or regulate the sale and use of the two products. “Meanwhile, we welcome the fatwa [suggestion by religious authorities] issued by the Malaysian Islamic Development Department [Jakim] to ban shisha, which is in tandem with the ministry’s initiative on tobacco control,” he said. The Consumers Association of Penang has reportedly urged the ministry to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to prevent youths from getting hooked, as there was no age limit on the sale of the product. The fatwa committee of the National Council for Islamic Affairs declared smoking shisha as forbidden for Muslims.

Electronic cigarettes: No smoking, but lots of fuming

Can electronic cigarettes help smokers kick the traditional habit?

“Unlike tobacco smoke, the vapor dissipates very quickly,” he says. “It looks like it’s probably very minor risk.” However, there is a social risk, Bialous points out, in that vapers drawing on stick-like objects and puffing out a smoke-like substance looks a lot like smokers, and may serve to normalize the habit again. Might kids be attracted to a product enjoyed by the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio? “So far, there is no evidence that kids find this particularly cool,” Siegel says, though that “could change.” Even when it’s technically allowed, some e-cigarette users avoid vaping in social situations.

Electronic cigarette firm joins fight against EU proposals

E-cigarettes face new restrictions

E-cigarettes contain nicotine but vaporise waste products and manufacturers claim they are an alternative to standard tobacco cigarettes which produce damaging tar and smoke as well as help smokers cut down or quit. Its estimated around 1.3 million people use them in the UK with the market expected to reach 250m per year in 2014. ECigaretteDirect.co.uk co-founder James Dunworth buys his products from China where they are made under licence and distributes them through an online site and a high street store.

Are e-cigarettes healthier?

However, that agency conceded that e-cig devices produce fewer harmful chemicals than conventional cigarettes. In the United States, the FDA is moving to release for public comment a proposed rule to regulate additional categories of tobacco products, such as e-cigarettes. FDA officials said they cannot comment on the contents of the proposed rule.

E-cigarettes: the new fracking

Food and Drug Administration is considering classifying the devices as tobacco products, a move that could result in a significant tax burden on people using them, he said. If FDA action made the devices subject to the state’s tobacco tax, it could make the e-cigarette equivalent of a pack of cigarettes taxed at $8.50 to $9, Jackson said. “What we don’t want to do is put a higher tax on a less-harmful product,” he said. Jackson said his brother has used an e-cigarette to gradually reduce his nicotine dependency. He hasn’t used a cigarette in three or four months, Jackson said. “I have seen first-hand how they can help,” he said.

Straight out of Fracking 101, Parker, who does donate heavily to cancer-fighting causes, claimed to the Wall Street Journal, Theres a huge opportunity to transition the entire world away from dangerous, carcinogenic, combusting cigarettes. But the marketing is hardly altruistic, from cartoons where the smoker gets the buxom gal, to ads where e-cigarette smokers puff away to rock music, to the flavoring of many of the e-cigarettes. The FDA has banned fruit flavors from tobacco cigarettes that attracted underage smokers, but the e-cigarette world is full of flavors such as Chocolate Thunder, Peach Schnapps, Cherry Crush, and Tahitian Punch. One company markets Butter Rum and Cinnamon Apple Crumble flavorings by saying, respectively, Go back to childhood, and, Remember moms homemade apple pie? Can these sweet-tooth evocations really be for middle-age smokers who want to quit? In the world of fossil energy, we have decided to frack now, and ask questions later. In the world of smoking, e-cigarette makers are flooding the market before any questions can be asked. They want us to believe that since nothing is as bad as real cigarettes, e-cigarettes are inherently good.

E-cigarette regulation and taxes once again on the front burner at the Capitol

Ive flown all over the world and used electronic cigarettes, Horne said. But while Horne says he gets more questions than freak-outs, government officials at the state level are not so complacently curious.State Senator Ellen Corbett introduced legislation this year which would treat e-cigarettes like regular ones, banning them from clubs, restaurants, bars, public buildings and any enclosed workplace. “These are cigarettes,” Corbett told the Sacramento Bee . “They might be fancy, high-tech cigarettes, but they’re still cigarettes.” But opponents of the bill, including the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA), the California Association of Alcohol/Drug Educators and thousands of e-smokers across the state, disagree. The Bee reported that over 150 of them filled the hallways of the Capitol building, e-smoking in protest. Corbett claims that passersbys coughed and choked on their byproduct.

Smokers have been banished from most public places, forced to nurse their addiction in private or outdoors. But what about vapers, the name for people who draw on electronic cigarettes that spew no actual smoke? Instead, they inhale — and then exhale — e-juice as a vapor containing liquid nicotine, flavored with such tastes as fresh tobacco and cotton candy. Should they be subject to the same restrictions?

The second question posed by the WHO is Is use of electronic cigarettes (ENDS) an effective method for quitting tobacco smoking? Again, the global health body answers by saying this has not been scientifically demonstrated. ENDS are often touted as tobacco replacements, smoking alternatives or smoking cessation aids. But we know that for smoking cessation products to be most effectively and safely used, they need to be used according to instructions developed for each product through scientific testing. There are no scientifically proven instructions for using ENDS as replacements or to quit smoking.

Electronic Cigarettes Retailer Vapor Jedi Launches New Canadian Website

Nicotine is heated inside an electronic device that creates a smokeless vapor, which is then inhaled by the user. The nicotine-infused vapor is often flavored and free from the harmful tar, carbon monoxide and chemicals found in traditional cigarettes. For many, e-cigarettes provide a way for users to slowly taper down their tobacco use. Electronic cigarettes work very well and they actually helped me quit smoking cigarettes, noted Frank. In fact, my wife, sister in law, brother in law and countless other friends and family members have quit smoking by using electronic cigarettes. The personal successes of Frank and other family members with electronic cigarettes was the catalyst for the companys launch. After smoking and dipping on-and-off for fourteen years, Frank was finally able to quit cold turkey as a result of e-cigarette usage.
