Health

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.

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.

Points that make a great electronic cigarette experience

It has been 15 weeks since I left regular cigarettes behind and began my journey down the long winding path of electronic cigarettes.  With the help of other review websites, blogs and the electronic cigarette forum I have found my feet in my current awareness.  I know what I know and I’m eager to plod into the darkness of my unawareness.

The Washington Post and USA Today posted articles on a 5 year study performed by Harvard School of Public Health’s Center for Global Tobacco Control in Boston.  The lead author Hillel Alpert said “Even though other well-controlled studies have shown that nicotine replacement therapy can be effective, our study looked at real-world use over the long-term… And in the real world, cigarettes are simply a very powerful addiction. And NRT is apparently not an effective replacement for that addiction.”

Here is a news article from Daily Comet that asks the question “Do Electronic Cigarettes work?” and they dot he leg work and what dot hey find?  Here is a small excerpt:

They’re converts. And they’re happy about dropping a long engrained and cancer-causing, habit. But they’re unhappy about a proposed city ordinance, which would not allow them to ” vap” in public places.

Is their new habit, though, any better? Scientific evidence isn’t conclusive. Still, unequivocally, they say ” yes.”

Here is an excerpt form an article I found at Cosmos Magazine from 2008 about why nicotine is bad for people, especially with Heart Disease.

WHY NICOTINE IS BAD FOR YOU

• Nicotine is not carcinogenic, but it is highly addictive; after inhalation of smoke, nicotine reaches the brain within 20 seconds and its effects are felt within a minute.

• Nicotine is five to ten times more potent than cocaine or morphine in producing behavioral and psychological effects associated with addiction, including feelings of pleasure, according to a report produced by the U.K.’s Royal College of Physicians in 2007.
