“Vaping 95% Less Harmful than Smoking” as According to Public Health England

science-study-sml

As e-cig legislation is debated, much research is being conducted on the safety of electronic cigarettes. A recent study in England seems to suggest that “Vaping is 95% less hazardous than smoking combustible cigarettes.” This fascinating electronic cigarette study has been the center of much discussion.

A vaping advocacy group known as the American Vaping Association is calling for the US to re-examine its views on vaping due to this groundbreaking study in England. The 111 page government report provides some interesting conclusions about e-cigarette use.

Key findings from this study include:

  • “E-cigarettes are around 95% less harmful than smoking combustible cigarettes.”
  • “Almost half of the UK population (44.8%) are unaware that vaping is less harmful than smoking.”
  • “There is no evidence that vaping leads people into smoking cigarettes.”
  • “E-cigarettes may be causing a decline in smoking.”

“My reading of the evidence is that smokers who switch to vaping remove almost all the risks smoking poses to their health,” said professor Peter Hajek of Queen Mary University. Hajek co-authored the report with professor Ann Mcneill of King’s college London.

Because of this new information, the AVA is requesting US organizations and government agencies to reconsider their position on vaping. The AVA is also asking these groups to issue correct data clarifying previous misleading information.

This is not the first study in the UK to come out in favor of vaping. US agencies have been much less supportive of e-cigs. Vaping enthusiasts can only hope this new study has some positive effect on government agencies.

You can view the full report and documents from this study here.

Things to Know about Electronic Cigarette Safety

VapeLike

Electronic cigarettes have become quite popular over the last few years. Vaping offers the same satisfaction you get from smoking traditional cigarettes but without all the harmful toxins associated with tobacco.

They don’t contain tobacco and the vapor you exhale is odorless, or savory in aroma, which makes them a great alternative to traditional cigarettes. However as with any product, you do need to use them responsibly.

Below are three electronic cigarette safety tips everyone should follow when using these products:

  1. Read the user’s manual before using the product. Regardless of experience level, always read the instructions. They are there for a reason! Many people overlook this step assuming they know how to use e-cigarettes correctly but it does contain a lot of useful information, some of which you may not know.
  2. Keep your e-cigs, e-liquids and accessories out of the reach of children. Just as you wouldn’t let your child get your cigarettes, lighter and other tobacco products, you must also keep e-cigs and related products out of their reach. Nicotine is toxic and can be absorbed through the skin. This is very dangerous and could even be fatal to small children.
  3. Always purchase your e-cigarettes and e-liquids from a reputable distributor. This will ensure you’re getting quality products that function properly. The amount of heat the e-cigarettes produce does have a direct impact on how safe the product is to use, so it’s vital they work property. Low quality e-liquids can contain unhealthy impurities that may not be safe. Ask a few questions to determine your level of comfort with the shop.Some stores know little to nothing about the vaping products they carry, and are only looking for a sale. They often also carry the lowest quality hardware which can be more prone to breakage or malfunction. Leave these stores immediately and find one who knows their product.

Vaping is safer than smoking tobacco when used correctly so keep these tips in mind when using e-cigs. It will help keep you safer so you can get the most from these products.

Electronic Cigarette Etiquette: Where Can I Vape?

no-smoking-no-vaping

E-cigarettes are becoming more and more popular as a low nuisance way to get your nicotine fix. Although they don’t carry the same noxious smells and toxic fire smoke, ecigs aren’t looked upon favorably everywhere, and some places have outright bans on vaping. A little courtesy and etiquette can go a long way when using electronic cigarettes in public and can help keep vape-friendly places free for other users.

You Can’t Vape on Planes

You’re facing a six-hour flight and no chance to step outside the terminal for a smoke, so can you use your e-cig on the plane? Officially, the FAA said in 2013 that carriers are free to make their own policies regarding vaping, but most large carriers will tell you no. JetBlue, American Airlines, Delta, United and Southwest all list electronic cigarettes as a no-go on their flights. If you’re unsure of your carrier’s policy or whether you can sneak a puff or two in the terminal, check with your airline provider or the staff at your airport. They’ll tell you if you can use your vaping device and where you’re allowed to do so.

Public Businesses Might Allow It 

You’ve got a chance if you want to vape in a public business, as long as the business owners allow it. Even if there’s a state or city-wide smoking ban in effect, vaping doesn’t always fall under those rules. As e-cigarettes become more popular, business owners decide what is–and isn’t–allowed in their restaurants, bars, night clubs, bowling alleys and shops. If no clear signs are posted, you might be able to use your ecig in a public establishment. But then again, you might not.

It’s always better to err on the side of caution and ask. If other patrons ask you to stop, think long and hard before telling them off. Instead, be courteous, rather than confrontational or defensive. Acting in a composed and civil way could help decide that establishment’s policy on vaping. If you’re kind and polite, you might just keep the right for other vapers to indulge.

Parks and Public Walkways

Gone are the days where you could walk down any city street and smell the trail of a businessman’s stogie, trailing for blocks as he walked home from work. Smoking bans and anti-smoking laws have put the kibosh on this, but ecigs are still a legal gray area.

Different locations have different rules regarding the legality of smoking–and vaping–in public streets, walkways and parks. While there’s less problem with vaping in open spaces, some people still might not like it. As long as it’s legal, simply move to another location and continue on. You’re not hurting anyone else, and there’s little to no emission for them to worry about.

Your Apartment

Even if your apartment has a no-smoking clause in the lease, it’s pretty safe to say you can vape in peace. Vaping doesn’t leave cigarette stink in the air, smells don’t travel through the vent systems to irritate your neighbors, and there’s no nasty tar stains to clean off the walls. Your landlord likely won’t know and you won’t lose your security deposit like you would if you were smoking traditional cigarettes.

Keeping Up to Date

As laws and regulations change and e-cigarettes become more popular and recognized, the rules are subject to change. Keep abreast of any changes in your area to figure out where you can and can’t safely vape.  This isn’t the definitive guide, always use discretion and make your own informed decisions. Please always be courteous to others. 

Remember that acting confrontational towards a person who may not understand vaping tends to only make yourself and the rest of us look like jerks. Be polite and patient, and if they’re interested in learning about it, share some information. If they aren’t, leave them alone and find a place to vape that isn’t bothering others.

If you have any questions or want to share a vape-friendly location, contact us. We’d love to hear from you!

E-Cigarette Health: What We Actually Know

If you’re looking to get into e-cigarettes, in the midst of doing your research you’ll see that there is a lot of back and forth about whether they can be good for your health. Most articles are based on opinion and personal experience, rather than evidence from health studies. When deciding if e-cigarettes are right for you, consider the research over the misinformation campaigns.

While it’s known that actual cigarettes contain tobacco and that it’s a known carcinogen, Big Tobacco and Anti-Tobacco groups alike have successfully spread campaigns to suggest that e-cigarettes just as, if not more harmful than the traditional ones. Michael Siegel – a physician and professor of community health sciences with an extensive background in tobacco control – is hopeful that e-cigarettes will help smokers quit. It is important to note that the addition of nicotine, another addictive substance, is optional to add in e-cigarettes.

“The anti-tobacco movement’s treatment of e-cigarettes has been a public health disaster because the overwhelming majority of the movement has misled the public into believing that vaping is just as harmful as smoking. Most health groups have failed to acknowledge that e-cigarettes have helped thousands of smokers to quit and that these devices have improved the health of tens of thousands because they are so much safer than tobacco cigarettes. This campaign of deception has been successful: the public is completely confused about the relative safety of real and fake cigarettes. And the campaign has been damaging: the public’s appreciation of the severe hazards of smoking has been undermined, and quitting has largely been discouraged.” – Michael Siegel

As research continues to expand, the health of effects of e-cigarettes are continuing to be explored, as well as their positive impact on the smoking population.

It’s important to think about your smoking habits, and whether you want to have them if you don’t already. Asking questions about why you’re smoking/vaping or why you want to begin, doing your own research making your own informed decisions is key. Contact us for more information on e-cigarettes and to share your experience.

Vaping in Pop Culture – Ecigs Showing Up on Film and TV

Vaping in pop culture is more popular than ever. During the 2014 Gold Globes award show, Reese Witherspoon and Julia Louis-Dreyfus were part of a comedy sketch. The humorous part of the sketch involved Julia Louis-Dreyfus vaping and pretending to be too good to sit with the other celebrities around her.

The popular Netflix series House of Cards features Kevin Spacey’s character vaping as a way to give up his cigarette habit. Ecigs have also made an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. Katherine Heigl was a guest who enjoyed her ecig during her interview.

Electronic cigarettes have also gained popularity among other celebrities to include Leonardo DiCaprio, Katy Perry, and Lindsay Lohan just to name a few. Many celebrities have given up smoking cigarettes for the cleaner alternative of ecigs. Some are using vaping to help kick their tobacco habit. Actor John Cusack uses his ecig as a head turner to grab people’s attention in public.

Other celebrities have even gone on to endorse specific brands of ecigs. Jenny McCarthy and actor Stephen Dorff promote their favorite brand. Singer Bruno Mars has invested in another electronic cigarette company.

It is not surprising that the entertainment industry is displaying more ecigs in film and television.  Using electronic cigarettes in public still manages to capture the attention of people who are not familiar with them. However, vaping is quickly becoming a part of pop culture and more than likely will show up in more television shows and major motion pictures.

What are the ingredients in eliquid?

There has been much debate about the contents of eliquid used in electronic cigarettes. There really is no great mystery. While traditional tobacco cigarettes contain thousands of chemicals, eliquid contains only 3 to 4 basic ingredients. It breaks down as follows:

  • VG (vegetable glycerin) – This is the ingredient that creates the vapor. It is commonly used in fog machines for the same purpose of creating vapor.
  • PG (propylene glycol) – This is a food grade propylene glycol that is also used to create fog as well as deliver flavor.Propylene glycol is found in everything from beers and sports drink flavor shots to cake frosting.  It is also responsible for the “throat hit” when vaping.
  • Flavoring – The flavoring used in eliquid is simply food flavoring. It is precisely the same thing you might use to flavor your cupcakes. It is completely edible and safe.
  • Nicotine – This is an optional ingredient. Most people choose to vape with nicotine included. However, some people do prefer eliquid with 0mg of nicotine. The eliquids are made with varying levels of nicotine, so you can pick the amount you are most comfortable with.

 VapCigs eLiquids come in a 40/60 mix of VG and PG. Meaning, it’s base is 40% VG and 60% PG. If you want more vapor and less of a threat hit, you can get eliquid with a higher VG concentration and lower PG. Alternatively, if you prefer experiencing a stronger throat hit like that of a traditional cigarette and do not mind having less vapor, you can get a higher concentration of PG and less VG. Some eliquid flavors contain an innate throat hit. These include things like menthol, peppermint, cinnamon, citrus, and other similar flavors.

Choosing your nicotine level is really a personal choice. Most users switching from a “Full Flavor” might want to start with an 18mg or 27mg, while those who use “lights” are likely to be more comfortable with 13mg or less.

There is an enormous selection of eliquid flavors. Most beginners start with tobacco flavors until they get used to vaping. Contact us for more information and assistance regarding your e-cig needs.

What is an E-Hookah?

Much like e-cigarettes, e-hookahs are pen-like devices which allows you the freedom to enjoy your shisha wherever you’d like. E-shisha comes in multiple enjoyable flavors and varying nicotine levels from 0-18mg. Ehookahs  are conveniently small and do not require any coals or an outlet to plug into. Just charge your device’s battery and go! Now, any time can be turned into a relaxing shisha-smoking experience without expensive and dangerous hot coals.

Why are E-Hookahs Such a Great Alternative to Cigarettes?

They are flame-less, exude no second-hand smoke and don’t leave you smelling like an ashtray. They are also ash free and tar free, making them a greener, cleaner alternative. Additionally, you can customize your e-hookah to satisfy your taste buds. Changing flavors takes only seconds. Quick changes allow your e-hookah experience to be as unique as you are.
