“Most participants (72 percent) were former smokers, and 76 percent were using e-cigarettes daily. At baseline, current users had been using e-cigarettes for three months, took 150 puffs per day on their e-cigarette and used refill liquids containing 16 mg/ml of nicotine, on average. Almost all the daily vapers at baseline were still vaping daily after one month (98 percent) and one year (89 percent). Of those who had been vaping daily for less than one month at baseline, 93 percent were still vaping daily after one month, and 81 percent after one year. In daily vapers, the number of puffs per day on e-cigarettes remained unchanged between baseline and one year. Among former smokers who were vaping daily at baseline, 6 percent had relapsed to smoking after one month and also 6 percent after one year.”
Moundville, AL vape shopKeep in mind that there are a few types of atomizer tanks that work best if the e cig is held horizontally to help promote better wicking. Top coil clearomizers are the most notable offenders, but if you’re using a cartomizer/carto tank or an atomizer cartridge combo this shouldn’t be an issue.
Over the last few years, manufacturers and vendors have been testing their products for these chemicals, sharing the results with consumers, and altering recipes to eliminate them. That process really ramped up towards the end of last year when researchers published a paper in Nicotine and Tobacco Research that found, of the 159 sweet and creamy flavored e-liquids tested, 74 percent had DA, AP, or both.
The way vape companies market just adds to the problem, creating a vicious circle that reinforces the incumbency of the vape-bro. VAPE Magazine, one of the few publications catering to the vaping world, is stacked in piles underneath glass tables at vaping bars around the country. It shares an aesthetic appeal with publications like Inked and High Times, and the ads either cash in on classical machismo or skip straight to femme-fatale booth babes in bikinis.
I tried the Caramel Apple juice as well. It’s ok. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I feel like this one might grow on me. It may need to age a bit more as well, as there is just a hint of a chemically taste to it.
Propylene glycol—or PG—is a main ingredient in albuterol, or asthma inhalers, and is perfectly safe to inhale when vaporized. PG is thinner than VG, and carries flavor very well—the next ingredient, flavorings, are usually suspended in PG. Flavorings are food-grade, can be natural or artificial, and are limited only by the imagination of the juice maker.
“Three months of additional smoking poses a greater risk to someone’s health, on average, than a lifetime of using a low-risk alternative.”
“Safe doesn’t exist. But electronic cigarettes are low risk compared to regular cigarettes. It’s the equivalent of having a four-wheel-drive Volvo compared to a high-powered motorcycle with bald tires in an ice storm.
“Rather than the unattainable standard of ‘safe’ we should be thinking in terms of ‘safer’. Despite the risks associated with soccer, I would, for instance, prefer my children play soccer rather than play with live hand grenades.”
“Electronic cigarettes are a potential lifeboat. No, they have not been tested and approved by the FDA. “But if you were in a sinking ship, would you remain in the ship because the lifeboats had not been FDA-tested and approved?”
“If we get all tobacco smokers to switch from regular cigarettes to electronic cigarettes, we would eventually reduce the US death toll from more than 400,000 a year to less than 4,000, maybe as low as 400.”
“There’s no doubt it [The Electronic Cigarette] can save many lives and hundreds of millions of pounds.”
inhaling mist from the e-cigarette is rated several orders of magnitude (100 to 1000 times) less dangerous than smoking tobacco cigarettes
If all the smokers in Britain stopped smoking cigarettes and started smoking e-cigarettes we would save 5 million deaths in people who are alive today. It’s a massive potential public health prize
No study has ever been done which documents that vaping results in the formation of carcinogens that adhere to surfaces, and no study has ever been done which documents that vaping on airplanes results in the deposition of such carcinogens or to carcinogen exposure among passengers.
When you smoke, it’s pretty obvious when you’re done. The cherry has reached the butt, and there’s no tobacco left. However, with e cigs, the battery doesn’t shrink as you’re vaping – so how are you supposed to know when you’re done? Well, there’s a few ways. You could time you’re vaping breaks and stop after 5 or 10 minutes, you could go outside with a friend who’s a smoker and go inside when they’re done, or you could just wing it and vape when you want for however long you want.
And as awesome as e cigs are in the current market, they’ll only continue to get better and better as technology evolves.
