Welcome One and All to Our Website About Electronic Cigarettes
I sincerely hope you enjoy the many articles to be found here. I’ve put quite a bit of time into researching the ins and outs of electric cigarettes so I hope you find the information contained here useful.
I believe electronic cigarettes are a fantastic alternative to traditional cigarettes. While many might disagree and say it could actually be a gateway to traditional smoking, I think that scenario is highly unlikely.
Where as the user of an electronic cigarette is still getting the addictive elements of nicotine they are in turn saving their lungs from the life ending catastrophic free radical damage created by inhaling burnt plant material. Not to mention the hundreds of other chemicals that are added to most traditional cigarettes.
So whether you’re a smoker yourself looking for a crutch to help you kick the habit or if you know someone whose thinking about alternatives for whatever reason this site is for you.
One of the problems facing the electronic cigarettes industry is that it has nothing or no one to fall back on in the face of constant attacks. When Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York, decided to ban sugary drinks, naysayers pointed out that small businesses in the city and its many boroughs would suffer. The e-cigarette industry doesn’t have such a group it can defend now that the city has issues a smoking ban that includes e-cigs.
The Poor Tobacco Farmer
Tobacco smoking is extremely harmful to the body which is why so many people are turning to e-cigarettes as a means of helping them to quit. E-cigs contain nicotine just like tobacco cigarettes so they can be used as a ‘bridge’ to help wean yourself off. It is a sad fact that tobacco smokers are in fact addicted to nicotine and like all addictions; this is characterized by compulsive use even in the face of negative effects. Around 35 million people try to quit smoking annually but 85% of th
As we have discussed in previous articles, big tobacco is extremely interested in the e-cigarettes industry despite all the potential restrictions that could be put in place thanks to kneejerking and the ensuing legislation. Companies such as Philip Morris International, Lorillard, Reynolds American Inc. and British American Tobacco are eager to make their mark on the electronic cigarette industry in 2014. While the e-cig market managed to remain unregulated for a long time, it does seem as if t
It is hard to imagine that Hon Lik knew about the enormous amount of legislation his e-cigarettes were going to be subjected to. The Chinese pharmacist himself has been the victim of legal shenanigans and France is the latest country to have significant legal developments when it comes to electronic cigarettes. A French tobacconist has won a landmark legal case and prevented a nearby store selling e-cigs. The French court ruled that the store selling e-cigs was indulging in unfair competition si
It is an unfortunate and perhaps inconvenient truth that the antics of Michael Bloomberg, the Mayor of New York, and many others throughout the United States will end up driving ex-smokers back into the arms of tobacco cigarettes. Bloomberg and his ilk think that e-cigarettes are some form of ‘enemy’ and he is determined to ban their use. He has gone as far as set the Health Commissioner Tom Farley on the case with cynics saying that the mere existence of electronic cigarettes is enough of a
E-cigarettes have really changed the lives of so many people for the better that it is hard to believe the clamor to increase taxation and decrease availability. It is vital for the general public to not fall for the hype machine that suggests e-cigs will somehow be the fall of society. Perhaps some anti-electronic cigarettes historians will one day dig up evidence of e-cigs being the cause of Constantinople falling in 1453!
There are of course millions of smokers who love the feel, taste and
While Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) did agree on draft legislation to make e-cigarettes less attractive to younger people, it was also deemed unnecessary to treat e-cigs as pharmaceutical products. If e-cigarettes were to be treated in the same manner as legal drugs, a whole range of testing would need to be carried out and that would harm the industry. Instead, e-cigs will be treated as an alternative to tobacco cigarettes though there will be a large warning sign that covers 65% of
It should be pretty apparent that e-cigarettes are a vastly superior product to their tobacco rivals despite what lobbyists say but just in case you were in any doubt, here are 10 reasons why you should switch to e-cigs if you haven’t done so already.
1 – No Second-Hand Smoke: The simple fact of the matter is that e-cigarettes don’t produce smoke. Instead, vapor is produced and this means there are no harmful chemicals being inhaled by people in close proxim
It seems as if every week there is another major health organization speaking out against the perceived ‘ills’ of e-cigarettes. This wouldn’t be so concerning if it wasn’t the case where these bodies do so despite a lack of evidence and prefer to make damning statements based on little more than conjecture. Throw in a healthy dose of hyperbole and you have all the ingredients for scaremongering. The Dutch Health Ministry is supposed to have the best interests of the public at heart but i
The legal impact of the potential banning of e-cigarettes is beginning to be felt all around the world. It has certainly had an effect on Croydon, England after a worker that was sacked from his job for smoking an electronic cigarette launched a landmark legal case for wrongful dismissal. Paul Scott worked for a waste disposal company in Croydon called Viridor but found himself out of a job when he was spotted smoking while operating a truck. The incident occurred at the Beddington Lane site whe
