Health and Ecigs

California has a new bill that will attempt to ban e-cigs.  They are another of many states that are attempting to take action against e-cigs.  If passed they will label e-cigs as “is a hazard to the health of the general public” and regulate it as such.

You can take part in blocking this.  Just go to CASAA (The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free alternatives Associations) to find out how you can join in and help prevent this from happening.

But not totally Healthy.  This article exams the results of a scientific study by an interdependent source (Not funded by e-cig companies of cigarette companies) and shows that E-cigs are definitely safer that regular cigarettes… but not safer than not doing either.

I was just on thevapebabe.com‘s site and watched, we more like listened to, the speech by Bill Godshall, founder and Director of Smoke-Free Pennsylvania.

The comment she made about it was:

People like this make me smile! We all have to do our part to protect what is rightfully ours as a safer alternative to analog cigarettes!!!

So, naturally I was curious.  And I listened to him.  This guy is dead on.  He has his facts, he knows the regulations.  He was very passionate about  this subject he knows so much about, harm reduction from tobacco cigarettes.  He let the panel ask questions and he responded with facts, dates, studies… everything but the kitchen sink.  I loved it as well.  So much so that I’m reposting the video also so even more people can witness… Bill Godshall.

Merry Christmas everyone!  Hope it’s filled with love, health and wonderful memories!

I came across an article called “The Deadly Crusade Against E-cigarettes” by Dr. Gilbert Ross, M.D. is executive and medical director of the American Council on Science and Health. In his article he actually takes a long view of the harmful effects of cigarettes on this Century. He calls it the “most important public health problem in the world”.

Experts predict the global death toll of cigarettes will approach a billion lives lost this century. That millions of people in Korea, and hundreds of millions of people around the world, are addicted to cigarettes should be considered the worst global catastrophe in human history.

Grimm Green was asked this question, as have I been asked, and his answer… well, lets just say he summed up it for me.

Brian Clark Howard of National Geographic News asks a new question.  Are E-cigs less harmful on the environment than regular cigarettes?

This is new question, but once heard, makes perfect sense.  Environmentally, which between cigarettes and electronic cigarettes leaves a smaller foot print?  Brian brings up cigarette buts, how long they take to decay, and the toxins they leak back into the environment.

Although people are smoking less in America thanks to decades of public health campaigns, cigarette butts are still a significant trash problem. The core of the butt can take anywhere from 18 months to 10 years to decompose. During that time, the cigarette filters are full of tar, nicotine, and other toxins that can leach into the ground, potentially affecting any organism that comes into contact with them.
