E-cigarette and Vaping Opinions From The Experts

Health Professional Derek Yach speaks in The Spectator on the Revolutionary Opportunity e-Cigarettes offer in the Fight Against Tobacco Deaths

by Steve Barrett

The tobacco industry is notoriously untrustworthy and resorts to many surreptitious methods to increase sales and its profits. Their marketing budgets stretch to - covertly funding media organisations, even health initiatives and actively lobbying or threatening governments to not “rock the boat” when it comes to tobacco marketing – as we witnessed recently in Ireland regarding the plan for plain cigarette packaging.

In his recent article (21/02/15) in The Spectator, Derek Yach, Executive Director of the Vitality Institute and former head of tobacco control at the World Health Organisation (WHO), rationalises his distrust of the tobacco industry but warns against tarnishing e-cigarettes with the same hostile brush.

‘Long term e-cigarette use can substantially decrease cigarette consumption in smokers not willing to quit.’

‘Long term e-cigarette use can substantially decrease cigarette consumption in smokers not willing to quit.’

by Steve Barrett

"When electronic cigarettes came to the U.S. about 2007, I was skeptical. My assumption was they were a ploy by the tobacco industry to hook more people into smoking under the guise of being a safer product  - the notorious low-tar cigarette scam all over again. But as I talked to many e-cigarette users, known as “vapers,” conducted research (Journal of Public Health Policy, 2011) and reviewed a growing body of scientific evidence, I became convinced that e-cigarettes have dramatic potential for reducing disease and death caused by smoking".

Your Dinner is More Toxic than an E-Cigarette. Don't eat - vape!

by Steve Barrett

Once again, it seems, the Media enjoy the opportunity of presenting a one-sided point of view on e-cigarettes and vaping.

The most recent claims stem from a study by the University of Southern California (USC) that found traces of chromium, nickel and zinc in e-cigarette vapour.

However, the articles were not followed by further editorial expressing the horrific terror that awaits anybody that eats their dinner! Why? Because an average meal cooked in a pan contains a lot more chromium and nickel than e-cig vapour! Shocking and horrific headlines ensued – that all vapers are doomed to a nasty end from putting such chemicals into their bodies.

Major Breakthrough for Vapers and Electronic Cigarette Industry

by Steve Barrett

In what can only be described as a major breakthrough for the vaping community a group of 53 leading scientists have written an open letter to the World Health Organisation warning officials against over regulating electronic cigarettes and classifying them as tobacco products.

The group, including Professor Robert West, leading UK addiction expert (pictured), state that: “…doing so would jeopardise a major opportunity to slash disease and deaths caused by smoking”

Does the European Parliament  Have Its Head Up Its Butt?

Does the European Parliament Have Its Head Up Its Butt?

by Steve Barrett

The European Parliament endorsed two pieces of draft legislation this week. One makes complete sense and the other seems to make no sense what-so-ever.

The second part of the legislation which would regulate electronic cigarettes, vaping devices and e-liquids as medicines or even tobacco products is categorically absurd.

In this blog we look at why the legislation is flawed and the rationale behind the political thought process.

Clive Bates, Former Action on Smoking And Health Director Discusses Nicotine and Endorses Electronic Cigarettes.
