New Report Shows No Danger from E-Cigarette Vapour Exposure

A report published in the October Inhalation Toxicology Journal shows that exposure to vapour from E-cigarettes poses no risk to adults or children. The experts at hope the study will encourage more smokers to give up tobacco based cigarettes.

London, UK (PRWEB) November 06, 2012

While the number of people using e-cigarettes has increased significantly in the last few years there are concerns over how safe they are for the people using them and those around them. The manufacture of e-cigarettes is still largely unregulated and few scientific studies have been conducted into the impact their use has on air quality. One of the first studies to look into the effects of e-cigarette use was published in the October issue of the Inhalation Toxicology Journal. It found that e-cigarette vapour posed no significant risk of harm to human health.

The study was conducted by CHANGE at the Clarkson University in New York. It compared the vapour produced by 4 different high-nicotine e-liquids with the smoke produced by conventional tobacco cigarettes. Some of the pollutants that were tested for included VOCs, nicotine, carbonyls, and TSNAs. As expected the smoke from tobacco cigarettes was found to pose a significant risk to human health. What may be more surprising for some was that the vapour produced by vaporising the e-liquid for both non-cancer and cancer risk analysis showed no risk to health for adults or children.

There has been a growing controversy over the use of e-cigarettes with their use being banned in many countries where there is a smoking ban in place. This study should go some way to easy people’s fears about the use ofelectronic cigarettes.
The rapidly rising cost of tobacco based cigarettes is another reason why many smokers in the UK are turning to e-cigs. With the price of 20 cigarettes close to £8, a 20 a day smoker is spending nearly £3,000 every year on their nicotine habit. The cost of vaping is around £1 per day and can be even cheaper with DIY E-liquid kits. There are hundreds of different flavours for e-cigs ranging from regular tobacco and menthol to bubble-gum, rum and even tiramisu flavours. They are legal to smoke indoors and produce none of the smells or smoke of regular cigarettes.

The experts at say that vaping will only become more popular as more people in the UK come to realise the health and financial benefits of e-cigs. Whether they are used as a means of giving up tobacco or for the pleasure of vaping e-cigarettes are definitely here to stay.

United States
A new law set to take effect on January 1st in New York will ban the sale of electronic cigarettes to anyone aged below 18, with the measure’s sponsor State Sen. Owen Johnson (R-Long Island) saying the ban was needed to protect youth because e-cigarettes “have not been proven to be safe for use at any age.” (Associated Press – AP 12/24)

The town of Great Barrington, Massachusetts expanded its anti-smoking ordinance to include electronic cigarettes in its smoke-free law, raise fines for infractions, ban hookah bars and other bars that promote and profit from smoking, and prohibit smoking in parks and cemeteries.

If you’re doing well on your stop smoking journey, don’t forget to reward yourself. Treat yourself to a nice massage, a pedicure, or a special new outfit when you’ve cut back, and then something else when you’ve stopped entirely. You need to have rewards like this to look forward to, as they can help to keep you motivated.

I usually do not leave many responses, but i did some searching
and wound up here New Report Shows No Danger from
E-Cigarette Vapour Exposure – TobaccoToday. And I do have
2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of these responses appear like left by brain dead visitors?
😛 And, if you are writing at other social sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.

Would you list of the complete urls of your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

First of all, e cigs are all greener than regular cigarettes. If one firm advertises its environmental friendliness as though it is greener than the rest, test that suggestion by reading more about it. Unless they have invented biodegradable batteries, the most they can offer is a recycling program, although that is a step in the right direction. Thanks for sharing valuable article over here…

Let’s see: ecigs are made in China, no listing of ingredients on the package. Could the same people that put lead in the paint of children’s toys be making ecigs? Hmmmmm.

These ecig blogs are dominated by ecig people pushing their products. Sad

This was just published today…

Walmart customers in China who purchased “Five Spice” donkey meat can be reimbursed because the product may contain fox meat, the company said late Wednesday.

The retailer is recalling the donkey meat and helping investigate its supplier after Chinese regulators found the product contained meat from other animals, Reuters reports. Donkey meat is a popular snack in parts of China, which slaughtered 2.4 million donkeys in 2011.

The reports of tainted meat embroils Walmartt in an ongoing controversy in China over food safety — which has already affected international brands like Carrefour and KFC — even as the world’s largest retailer plans a major expansion in the world’s largest grocery market. Walmart, which operates more than 400 facilities in China, plans to open 110 new stores there in the next few years.

Maybe there’s donkey juice in them there ecigs!

That may or may not be real for you personally but you are lowering the total tar and carcinogenic material you happen to be inhaling
with an electric cigarette. Want to try a disposable
krave cigarettes for yourself, as well as brands
of cigars like camacho cigars visit our online cigar shop. I chose their Absolute Tobacco flavor using the highest Nicotine
level and my cravings aren’t there.

Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after reading through some of the post
I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
