E-cigarettes very popular among Ontario students

Vape ’em if you’ve got em: Ontario students are ditching regular cigarettes for their e-cigarette cousins, a CAMH survey has found.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health released its 2015 survey on Ontario students’ drug and alcohol use on Wednesday. The survey, which is done every two years, asks students from grades 7-12 about their drug use over the past year.

Here are some of the most interesting findings:
1. E-cigarettes have overtaken regular tobacco use

12 per cent of students reported using e-cigarettes in the past year, compared to eight per cent who smoked a regular cigarette. This includes e-cigarettes with and without nicotine – in many cases, the students themselves didn’t know what kind they had smoked.

“I think a lot of public health efforts have been put into reducing smoking of tobacco cigarettes,” said Dr. Hayley Hamilton, a research scientist at CAMH and co-lead on the survey project. These public health campaigns seem to have succeeded – to a point anyway.

“We want [cigarette use] to be much lower,” she said.

But the trend could indicate some persistent misconceptions when it comes to the health risks of cigarette alternatives.

“I think there is an assumption or a belief that e-cigarettes are less harmful than tobacco cigarettes,” she said. “The problem is that the data, the research to date is inconclusive with respect to the impacts or effects of e-cigarettes.”

2. More students have taken prescription opioids recreationally than smoked a cigarette

How uncool have cigarettes become? More Ontario students report non-medical use of prescription opioids than smoked cigarettes in the last year. 10 per cent of students report using an opioid pain reliever non-medically, compared to eight per cent who smoked cigarettes. 59 per cent of opioid users said they obtained the drug from someone at home.

This comes as prescription opioids take a growing toll on Canadians. In 2011, Ontarians were more likely to die from prescription opioid overdoses than as the driver in a car accident.

“You’re using drugs without a prescription, without your own prescription. So you’re using them without medical supervision. And they’re highly addictive,” Hamilton said.

Electronic cigarettes at a glance

Electronic Cigarette: The battery-powered device made of plastic or metal heat liquid nicotine solution, creating steam that users inhale. Some models are disposable, and some are designed to be refilled with cartridges containing that enthusiasts called “smoke juice.” Some e-cigarettes are made to look like a real cigarette with a tiny light on the tip that glows like the real thing.

e-cigarettejpg-241b9e1be84c390fWhat is in e-cigs: The liquid ingredients used in most electronic cigarette nicotine include water, glycerol, propylene glycol and flavors. Propylene glycol is a viscous liquid is sometimes used as a coolant but also as a food ingredient.

Selling Points: Users say that electronic cigarettes address both addictive and behavioral aspects of smoking. Smokers to get their nicotine without the thousands of chemicals found in regular cigarettes. And they receive to form something like a cigarette, while the exhalation and puffing that looks like smoke without ash, smell and resin.

The worries: So far, there is not much scientific evidence that electronic cigarettes help smokers quit or less, or to say that they are safe. Some are concerned that the electronic cigarette marketing may tempt children to take habits.

Growing market: The industry soared from thousands of users in 2006 to several million worldwide, which has led to the emergence of more than 200 brands. Analysts estimate the retail and online sales of electronic cigarettes could be worth $ 2 billion by the end of the year.

Flavors: While some e-cigarette manufacturers limit the offerings to tobacco and menthol taste, others sell candy as flavors such as cherry and strawberry – which is prohibited for use in conventional cigarettes because of concern that the flavors are used to appeal to children.

What’s ahead: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it plans to establish marketing and standards for electronic cigarettes in the near future as part of its control over the tobacco industry. This step may limit the marketing arm of the company is currently using and restrict sales to minors.

Booming E-cigarette industry raises questions on safety, regulation

At the end of last year – for the first time in more than four decades – Cigarette has made a return to television advertising as a manufacturer of electronic cigarettes NJOY broadcast location approved cable networks.

ecig_620x350NJOY CEO Craig Weiss told CBS News’ Jeff Glor he hopes to extend the e-cigarette ads in prime time programming as part of its mission to “old fashioned cigarettes.”

NJOY is the best-selling brand of electronic cigarette or “e-cigarette”, battery-powered device that simulates the sensation of smoking real cigarette nicotine by delivering a smoke-like vapor. There’s no tobacco or combustion, and when no breath, no smell.

As he explained Weiss NJOY electronic cigarette makers are aiming for a unique and superior experience.

“It’s not that I want to be as good as a cigarette. I would like to be better than cigarettes,” he said.

E-cigarettes have been around for almost ten years, but the industry has expanded rapidly over the last year.

In 2011, sales of electronic cigarettes come close to $ 300 million. In 2012, sales more than doubled, to $ 600 million, according to the June 2013 report Wells Fargo Securities Analysts say this year, sales are likely to triple to more than $ 1 billion.

300 million in 2011, 600 million in 2012

And while traditional cigarette manufacturers will rake in about $ 80 billion this year, NJOY Weiss says he is confident the “good guys” – in his opinion, the electronic cigarette manufacturers – eventually come out on top.

“We think it’s kind of a David vs. Goliath battle. We take on big tobacco,” Weiss said Glor. “They’re good Public Enemy, to have.”

However, some in the medical community – including Dr. Neil Schachter, a leading pulmonologist at Mount Sinai in New York Hospital – was not convinced that the electronic cigarette manufacturers of so-called good guys.

“Patients come in and say,” Gee, I tried this new form of cigarette. Great. I smoke a non-toxic form of cigarettes. I tell them, ‘I do not know. I do not know if it is non-toxic, “Miner told Glor.

The Food and Drug Administration currently does not regulate electronic cigarettes, so manufactures are not authorized to disclose the ingredients.

Most of the major brands boast the same list of ingredients: Nictone, water, artificial flavors, glycerin, and propylene glycol, an ingredient that creates a simulation of exhaled smoke.

FDA continually promised to propose regulations for electronic cigarettes and while organization refused to talk to CBS News on camera, they are issuing this statement: “Further studies are needed to assess the potential public health benefits and risks of electronic cigarettes and other novel tobacco products.”

The study could take years, according to Erika Sward, the American Lung Association

“We are very concerned that there is literally no federal oversight of these products. We do not know them. We do not know how they are used,” Sward explained.

“I hope that the electronic cigarette does not ultimately have the same god awful that regular exposure to tobacco had, but the jury is still out,” she added.

For his part, Weiss welcomes FDA regulation, explaining that it would enhance his vision of the future, where smoking is not enough health effects known to date.

“I have a three year old and six-year-old. And I want to grow up in a world where they can ask me one day:” So, wait a second, Dad. I do not understand. Earlier you this little thing on fire, and then you Put it in your mouth? I mean, how did that even work?'” Weiss said

E-cigarettes?

In this day and age, everything seems to be going digital, and that includes smoking. Many smokers are turning to electronic cigarettes, also called e-cigarettes, thinking that they are better off with it than regular cigarettes. The truth is, we do not know what the consequences of electronic cigarettes are on the long term because there is not much scientific evidence, except those of manufacturers have come up with.

electronic-cigarette-185The Philippine Medical Association has called for a ban on the sale of electronic cigarettes to the public until the proper testing of their safety has been done. He noted that the sale of electronic cigarettes are not regulated, making them accessible to children and youth who look up to them as cool devices to be visible. They have contributed to some marketers, as an “alternative lifestyle” and many are made to believe that they are safer and relatively “healthy” than actually smoking.

“We do not know if it can be bad for us, and if they say that it is an alternative lifestyle, the question whether it is right for us to learn a new kind of vice to the public, to ensure that our children and young people,” warned Dr. Ramon Severino of the Philippine Pediatric Society, which is an organization of PMA specialty.

Dr. Saturnino Javier, immediate past president of the Philippine Heart Association, also details the uncertainty and risks of e-cigarette use in his column in Vital Signs, a newspaper for physicians and health care professionals. “It must also contend with the fact that nicotine is also a pair of the lungs,” he wrote. “One of the strongest arguments against the use of the electronic cigarette is that it can undermine prevention and cessation of smoking habits by strengthening the consumption of cigarettes in public places and workplaces,” he added.

Local FDA stand

Sometime ago, our local Food and Drug Administration issued a warning to the public about electronic cigarettes, emphasizing that they are not recommended method of smoking cessation treatment for smokers who want to quit. It also highlighted the potential risk of grave incitement children into learning how to smoke.

Electronic cigarette manufacturers claim that they are not targeting children with their product, but the nicotine cartridges they sell tastes are attractive to children. What child would not be attracted to chocolate, caramel, strawberry and even bubble gum flavors taste? Knowing the adventurous nature of the school and the unregulated nature of electronic cigarettes, we can have disastrous fad in the making, if we allow the electronic cigarette to be approved for sale.

The e-cigs work as a vaporizer since they vaporize a liquid solution into an aerosol mist, which simulates the real thing. It gives one the feeling of virtual smoking. It provides a virtual smoking. Although they do not contain tobacco is small in the device, which heats liquid nicotine, which transforms it into steam, which Smokers inhale and exhale.

Electronic Cigarette manufacturers claim that this nicotine vapor offers much less risk than conventional cigarette smoke. But no one knows for sure, possible side effects of inhaling nicotine vapor, as well as other health risks electronic cigarettes can cause. 

Vaporized solutions

We usually evaporate medicament for pulmonary problems such as asthma and lung inflammation, as it was shown that the vaporized solutions can reach the lung tissue more quickly and efficiently. If the electronic cigarettes have the same mechanism, and then vaporized nicotine to affect adversely the lighter, and we will not be surprised if more recent studies have shown that electronic cigarettes can cause all known complications of smoking in a short period of time.

Quality control in the manufacture of electronic cigarettes is also a big question mark, and it is likely that some manufacturers cannot adequately disclose all they put in their cartridges for electronic cigarettes, or the actual nicotine levels may be higher than what is listed on the label of the cartridge.

This may be the cause of satisfied electronic cigarette users swear by the high heavens about how electronic cigarettes have weaned them from smoking tobacco. Most likely, they do not realize that they get a higher dose of nicotine. They are out of the frying pan and put the fire directly.

Johnny Depp might have looked cool, though he fidgeted with his electronic cigarette in the movie “The Tourist” and Katherine Heigl of “Grey’s Anatomy” might sound like a health expert, as she explained how electronic cigarettes work when she guested in the David Letterman show. But not even a ton of celebrities can ever cover up the unknown danger that lurks behind the use of electronic cigarettes.




Marketing of electronic cigarettes: it’s a fake cigarette?

As the tobacco giants Altria and R.J Reynolds launch their new unregulated electronic cigarettes this summer, the noise is growing about the huge marketing budgets are waiting in the wings. But money is only a question or two, if the Giants can figure out how to shape the brand of cigarettes gadgets in the era of Facebook.

image6121E-battery operated cigarette tubes which emit steam clubs typically contain nicotine. Unlike cigarettes, they can be used virtually anywhere  and posts for electronic cigarette is only required to be directed to adults. Most of the ads do not have any health claims while they are waiting for FDA regulations, but the media and customers usually describe electronic cigarettes as a way to wean from unhealthy cigarettes.

The marketing challenge is to pay more attention to the “electronic” than the cigarette aspect of the product.

Blu Ecigs, for example, the target of 35-45 smokers who love techie devices, said founder Jason Healy, who sold the company last year to Lorillard, the manufacturer of cigarettes Newport. Blu packets and displays a black and smooth, like a mobile phone. If you flip the switch on the brand of “smart package”, it flashes and vibrates when it senses another Blu smoker nearby. Soon the package will also be able to talk with other electronic devices, said Healy.

In contrast, the independently owned Njoy, the market leader, is going retro with gold emblems and colored slashes on its signs and packaging.

Both approaches brand design clichés and trite, said Fred Richards, around the world in a creative Brand Union, branding and design consultancy. “The sleek look food stains are trademarks and language is similar to the premium like chewing gum. And combs and scarves from old cigarette packages of old.”

The larger opportunities, according to experts, are to use digital media and events involve public angst modern smoker. “Smokers are treated like outcasts of society for 20 years. There is a whole generation who are too young to know how it could smoke on airplanes and in offices and restaurants,” said Richards.

Blu is trying to embrace that sense of community with social media, said Healy. “We encourage people to tell their stories. Moreover, data from social sites allow us to focus on people over 18 who smoke.” Blu running a TV spot for the night cable, print ads in lifestyle and culture magazines, and it is significantly expands its events and social media marketing. “With a product like this, we have to dig to get the demo we want, and then we have to have a conversation,” said Healy.

The dispute impact of electronic cigarette health impacts is gaining steam as the industry is approaches $ 1 billion in sales. At the same time, a new brand category is emerging. “This is a breakthrough technology and changes in the social stigma attached to smoking,” said Richards. “This is an opportunity to create an entirely new language, lifestyle and attitude.”

Are electronic cigarettes dangerous, or the best alternative to tobacco?

Some people see them as a safer alternative to smoking.

Some people use them as an aid to quitting.

images (1)But the jury is still out on electronic cigarettes as the FDA is concerned.

“Consumers of electronic cigarette products currently have no way to tell if electronic cigarettes are safe … how much nicotine or other potentially harmful chemicals into the respiratory system during use, or if there are any benefits associated with the use of these products, “according to the FDA’s website.

E-cigarette battery powered devices that operate by heating a liquid which contains nicotine. The nicotine is then inhaled in the form of a vapor. Thus, instead of “smokers”, users of electronic cigarettes often call themselves “vapers”.

The FDA currently does not regulate electronic cigarettes, but the agency is working to change that by creating rules that would classify the devices as a tobacco products. While electronic cigarettes contain tobacco, is a key component of the nicotine found in tobacco plant.

Janelle Marousek, a registered nurse and certified diabetes educator for Desert Valley Senior Wellness Center in Apple Valley, is dubious about electronic cigarettes.

“Cigarettes, of course, are bad for you and there are tons of harmful chemicals in them, but electronic cigarettes scary” Marousek said. “There may be some rules with the FDA, but the company does not need them.”

Marousek said that in 2010, the FDA issued warning letters to five distributors of electronic cigarettes for unsubstantiated claims and poor manufacturing practices.

For smokers trying to quit, Marousek recommends the use of other sources of nicotine, such as gum, lozenges or a nicotine patch.

However, Dr. Timothy Denton, a cardiologist at High Desert Heart Institute in the state, said he feels that with the help of the electronic cigarette is the lesser evil compared to tobacco.

“We do not know the dosage of nicotine you get from the e-cigarette, but you do not get to carcinogens,” he said. “Over the counter you can buy nicotine gum, you can buy nicotine patches, and you can buy electronic cigarettes. Of those three, which is closest to the ritual you used to?”

And the ritual of smoking, Denton said, as addictive as nicotine itself. He notes that smokers crave cigarettes at certain times of the day – for example, immediately after a meal.

“They light a cigarette, they take a deep breath and once they feel good,” said Denton. “But it takes more time than for the drug to reach the brain.”

Those who quit smoking often need a new habit to replace it. Too often, that the habit is overeating, another serious health risk. The best alternative to smoking or eating is a new hobby or a change of scenery at a time when cigarette cravings can trigger – for example, for a walk after a meal.

But human nature being what it is, change does not come easily to most.

“In the e-cigarette, you get the feeling of a cigarette,” said Denton. “It’s a little more, it’s much harder. When you puff on it, you actually get a pair. This micronized moisture that gives you a little bit of nicotine.”

While manufacturers cannot make statements about electronic cigarettes as quit smoking AIDS, new data suggest that they can only be effective for this purpose.

Last week, the results were released from a study at the University of Catania in Italy. In 2010, 300 smokers who have not expressed a desire to quit agreed to try electronic cigarettes. Within 12 months, 8.7 percent of people in the study quit smoking, and 70% of those people continued to refuse to electronic cigarettes, as well. Another 9% to 12%t do not quit smoking, but they have reduced their habits by at least 50%.

“This is the first study of the good that has been done on electronic cigarettes,” said Denton.

And while we may not know all the side effects of electronic cigarettes, the risks of traditional cigarettes established: heart disease, stroke, lung cancer and various other cancers.

“For right now it is not unreasonable to recommend electronic cigarettes to patients who want to quit smoking,” said Denton. ” Anything we can do to help get patients off regular tobacco.”

Tobacco companies introduce the first e-cigarettes

Coming to a store shelf near you: the latest offering from some of the major tobacco companies, is an electronic cigarette. They were on the market for many years, but as the Health Watch reporter Stephanie Stahl shows us, it’s the first time tobacco companies getting in the game.

im-a-smoker-and-i-love-e-cigarettesGregory Conley says his electronic cigarette has changed his life.

“I took the electronic cigarettes and overnight, I gave up smoking,” Conley said.

Instead of smoking, he looks at it. It uses a battery for heating liquid with nicotine. People inhale the vapor. Advocates say that electronic cigarettes are a great alternative to traditional cigarettes.

Advocates say that electronic cigarettes are a great alternative to traditional cigarettes. Conley said: “The other option for about half of all smokers to smoke until they die.”

Traditional cigarette companies are jumping on the electronic cigarette bandwagon. Altria, the parent company of Phillip Morris, will begin selling Markten electronic cigarette at the end of this summer. Reynolds American, manufacturer of cigarettes Camel, just introduced VUSE, own electronic cigarette.

Electronic cigarette attorney Carl Phillips, Ph.D., says it’s big news.

“They are big players,” Phillips said. “They have a huge marketing power the tobacco industry has used to sell its cigarettes for decades.”

Electronic cigarette authorities must walk a fine line with the regulators. The FDA says they can’t claim electronic cigarettes help people to cure disease or to quit smoking, while the study did not prove it.

In documents obtained by Eyewitness News, some e-cigarette users and health workers reported side effects to the FDA such as allergic reactions, shortness of breath, heart problems, headaches, rash, vomiting, and more

“There’s still a lot of research needs to be done, much more research is carried out, I have to say on these effective ways to help people quit smoking, as well,” said Deb Brown of the American Lung Association. The association does not support electronic cigarettes. It is also concerned about the effects of passive vapor.

“I really think that in the future, there will be some recognition that there are many public health groups, who got this question wrong,” said Conley.

The FDA regulates tobacco, so it is ultimately expected to propose new rules for electronic cigarettes. Lawyers hope they do not muzzle the message of e-cigarette.

Marlboro maker Altria Group to sell their first electronic cigarette

The tobacco company Altria Group Inc. is launching its first electronic cigarette under the MarkTen brand in Indiana, beginning in August and extending its smokeless product offerings.

FIN Electronic Cigarette maker hires BB & T to review rate

FIN Branding Group LLC, a closely held manufacturer of electronic cigarettes, has kept BB & T Corporation (BBT), to evaluate the bids as private equity firms and tobacco companies seeking to enter the market for an alternative to smoking.

 

imagessBB & T is “growing and sustainable” The number of requests, FIN CEO Elliot Maisel, 58, said yesterday by phone. Possible buyers include tobacco and pharmaceutical companies as well as private equity firms, he said, refusing to identify companies that have expressed interest.

The consumption of electronic cigarettes – battery-powered, nicotine-infused tubes designed to replicate the experience without puffing smoke – may exceed the demand for traditional cigarettes in the next decade, according to Bonnie Herzog, an analyst at Wells Fargo & Co. in New York. The devices are designed for consumers worried that smoking is unhealthy and not allowed to smoke in offices, restaurants and other public places.

 

Potential investors’ financial capacity to see, “said Meisel, who started FIN Atlanta in 2011, and projects revenue of nearly $ 70 million this year. He hired Winston-Salem, North Carolina-based BB & T at the end of last year and said he was open to a joint venture or acquisition proposals from strategic buyers, such as Reynolds American Inc. (RAI), Altria Group Inc. (MO), international companies tobacco or big pharmaceutical companies.

LOGIC technology, based in Livingston, New Jersey, talked to a lot of tobacco companies and financial firms interested in the possible combinations, CEO of Eli Alelov said in a telephone interview. He declined to name the companies with which he spoke.

“Investment bankers are trying to get into the space,” said Alelov, 45. He said that he was “interested in what other business partners could put on the table. I’m always open to suggestions.”

 

Altria, the largest seller of tobacco in the United States, said last week that it plans to introduce an electronic cigarette in an unknown market in the second half of 2013. CEO Martin Barrington, speaking on a conference call with analysts, declined to comment on whether Altria considers takeover, saying the Richmond, Va.-based company did not speculate on potential acquisitions.

 

Electronic cigarette represent health risks and benefits

At Old Town Kettles and Cups in Wentzville, the electronic cigarette business is smoking. Minutes before closing time, some customers were buying electronic cigarettes are battery-powered and choosing from 80 flavors of e-liquid, sometimes called the “juice” with various doses of nicotine. The e-cigarette converts the liquid to vaporized nicotine that isinhailed.

The mixers, we have to mix our juices, in fact we will not do it in house. We want it to be in a clean environment above the restaurant, and they are also the guys who talk to FDA, so it’s pretty cool, so they put standards in place to make sure that this nicotine is correct.”

Greg Hohimer smoked cigarettes for 45 years. “I had asthma, bronchitis, emphysema. I was on four medications.”

Hohimer said after unsuccessfully trying to kick the tobacco habit at least 30 times, he started vaping electronic cigarettes. “One year after quitting smoking and start vaping, I went to all my lung medications.”

Fans of electronic cigarettes, also known as vapers, say they are less harmful than real cigarettes are effective and help smokers quit tobacco. Critics say that too little is known about the safety of electronic cigarettes because they are not regulated. Michelle Bernth manages communications for the American Lung Association of St. Louis, which is against electronic cigarettes.

“Now there is a lot of misinformation about electronic cigarettes,” said Bernth. “The first thing that they are not harmful to your health, which is not true, because the nicotine, which we know is bad for your health. They also contain chemicals that we do not fully understand. Now they are not regulated by the FDA. And so we want to know more about what’s going on with them, before we can understand how harmful or not harmful they are to people. “

Hohimer says he uses e-cigarette and has no plans to quit smoking, but there is little information on long-term use. “What I got from the very harmful,” said Hohimer. “If there are any long-term problems, there is no way that it will be almost the same as when I was smoking.”

The American Cancer Society, as well as the American Lung Association, is opposed to electronic cigarettes. “As long as you are inhaling nicotine and other toxic chemicals into the lungs, you’re still smoking,” said Michelle Bernth.

Concern for the safety of electronic cigarettes does not harm sales, which could reach $ 1 billion this year, according to UBS, a global financial services firm.

Electronic cigarette smokers – you are inhaling the unknown

Electronic cigarettes sound fantastic. Rather than your lungs fill with tar, they deliver nicotine vapor to satisfy your craving, without unpleasant side effects. They are widely popular as the safe alternative to cigarettes, a harmless way to get a nicotine hit. No wonder that 700,000 people have been using electronic cigarettes in the UK last year; with this figure should rise to over a million by the end of 2013.

imagesDoctors are desperate to reduce the £ 5 billion a year, smoking-related diseases costs the NHS. Anything that can help smokers quit, would be welcome. But electronic cigarettes are not a drug. There’s a reason you’re buying it from a newsstand, and do not get them on prescription. E-cigarettes may look legitimate, but they have not gone through the same rigorous safety checks as a medicinal nicotine replacement therapy.

I want to be sure that I am giving the right advice to patients when they ask about electronic cigarettes are not unwittingly compromise their health. Hardened smokers trying to quit using them as prescription drugs, but they do not have the same guarantee.

A quick search of the medical journal Archives shows about 200 links to electronic cigarettes in the past five years. These products are relatively new, so there are no long-term studies on the impact of them regularly. Instead, the research is focused on what is being delivered to the lungs of smokers, in addition to nicotine.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration analyzed the components of the electronic cigarette cartridges in 2009. They found trace levels of tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) – cancer-causing compounds commonly found in traditional cigarettes, although to a much lower concentration.

Although related, it is not a big surprise – the same levels found in nicotine patches. But the FDA also found diethylene glycol, a component of antifreeze and brake fluid. Rated as the poison of the World Health Organization, at high enough quantities it can cause kidney damage, nerve dysfunction and respiratory failure.

In March 2013, researchers from the University of California examined in detail the aerosol content of the electronic cigarette. They found particles of silver, iron, aluminum and silicate, and nanoparticles of tin, chromium, and nickel. The researchers noted that the concentration of these elements «was higher or equal to the corresponding concentrations in normal cigarette smoke,” and that “many of the elements defined in [electronic cigarette] aerosol is known to cause respiratory disorders and diseases.”

Other papers focus on the social impact of the introduction a highly addictive drug for a new audience. The Journal of Adolescent Health identified the electronic cigarette advertising campaigns that disproportionately appeal to the younger market, including “celebrities, trendy / fashionable images, and fruits, sweets, alcohol and flavors.”

A comparison can be made with alcopops, and there are fears that the awareness of e-cigarettes are much more teenagers than among the general population. Instead of being an opportunity for smokers to go to something less harmful, they can be a gateway to smoking young people who not otherwise try cigarettes.

Some commentators are skeptical restraint physicians to embrace electronic cigarettes. Although I strongly recommend smokers to quit, I do not comfortable playing unregulated, unlicensed product to the consumer, which sells itself as a medicine. It has similarities with the alarming when some doctors have called for smoking to health damage cigarettes has been fully understood.

With a little research, it is clear that we do not know the risks of using electronic cigarettes long-term, and the potential for harm is significant. While the same rules as other nicotine replacements are introduced, electronic cigarettes should be considered snake oil trick that can get a new generation hooked on nicotine before their first smoke.

Electronic cigarettes are a new solution for smoking

The electronic cigarettes, also known by its nickname the “e-cigarette”, is changing the way people smoke. Except, there is no smoke involved.

e-cigarette-replicationEric Adel, a senior from Olathe, electronic cigarettes took three months ago, in his efforts to quit smoking.

“I started using the electronic cigarette as a way to quit smoking. I’ve tried other things before, but so far this is the only method that has been really effective for me,” says Adele.

The electronic cigarette was first invented in 1960, but did not make a full appearance on the market before 2008. Number of people using electronic cigarettes has grown steadily over the past few years. Request to the electronic cigarette is that it does not contain harmful chemicals, which include regular cigarettes, and it emits water vapor instead of toxic smoke.

The main problem, however, is that there is very limited research available that display what the exact impact on the health of electronic cigarettes. Doctors and consumers cannot tell for sure if the electronic cigarette is safer than any regular cigarettes.

In December, FDA held a public hearing on nicotine replacement therapy, and one of the main focuses was on electronic cigarettes. Dr. Gilbert Ross of the American Council on Science and Health spoke at the hearing in support of electronic cigarettes. Dr. Ross is sure that the electronic cigarette is safer than regular cigarettes.

“The substances that are available in electronic cigarettes, water, glycerin or propylene glycol, nicotine is vaporized and in different dosages, it is benign and, in the worst case, it is much less harmful than the products of combustion of tobacco,” Dr. Ross said at the hearing.

Dr. Ross explains that electronic cigarettes should be praised, not punished, because they do not emit harmful fumes and chemicals like regular cigarettes.

“Electronic cigarettes are certainly not cigarettes,” Dr. Ross said. “They are nicotine delivery systems.”

Nicotine craving is a major problem faced by smokers when they decide to quit. Adel said that the electronic cigarette helps them to reduce their intake of nicotine significantly.

“I think the e-cigarette as effective quit smoking, because they mimic the behavior of smoking while satisfying the need for nicotine, but at the same time, you can deliberately reduce the amount of nicotine that you consume,” Adel said. “This is a way to outsmart your addiction.”

Ryan Hughes, a sophomore from Redlands, California also smokes electronic cigarettes, and says that, in general, the electronic cigarette is best for smokers.

“The electronic cigarettes are always longer than regular cigarettes,” Hughes said. “There’s not so much nicotine in electronic cigarettes, so that you can mimic lighter, less rich sensation of smoking, in contrast to the conventional cigarette.”

Adele says that they are cheaper.

“The set originally cost me about $ 40 and come with a battery and a bottle of liquid nicotine,” Adel said. “I spend about $ 10 a week for flavored liquid nicotine. You can buy cheap stuff, but I think it does worth it to spend a little more for a higher quality brand, and you will get the best selection of flavors. Compared to a pack of smokes day, electronic cigarettes are much cheaper. “

Adele says that nicotine addiction is not something that can be easily stopped, but the electronic cigarette is making progress for eliminate its dependence.

“Most people do not realize how powerful nicotine addiction is,” said Adele. “It completely destroys any rational decision-making. It does not matter that you know is going to give you cancer, or that it is unattractive, or that it makes you smell offensive. Psychologically, you just have to have it. Since I began using an electronic cigarette, I drastically reduced the amount of nicotine that I use, and we hope that by using only flavored liquid with zero nicotine over the next month. “

Richard Carmona joining electronic cigarette cards

Former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona, who stressed the danger of secondhand smoke and support a ban on all tobacco products, joins the board of directors for NJOY, the leading electronic cigarette companies in the country, a move that may increase the legitimacy of electronic cigarettes as a viable alternative to traditional cigarettes.

electronic cigaretteSenior public health official in the country under President George W. Bush from 2002 to 2006 will advise the Arizona-based company in the field of public health and regulatory issues. He will also supervise their studies with battery-operated devices that heat a liquid nicotine solution and create steam, which breathes users. Flagship private company NJOY King Product is the best selling electronic cigarettes.

Carmona, 63, is president of the health and welfare nonprofit Canyon Ranch Institute in Tucson and is a professor of public health at the University of Arizona.

In 2006, he published a comprehensive report, which concluded that breathing any amount of someone else’s tobacco smoke harms nonsmokers, and played an important role in smoking bans across the country. In testimony to Congress Committee in 2003, Carmona was critical about the possibility of a safe alternative to smoking tobacco.

“Definitely there is an argument that can be done to reduce the damage, but, obviously, more research needs to be done,” Carmona told the Associated Press. “I probably will [us] the biggest critic …. I still look at his work as a doctor of people, and I will look at the science…. If we can find an alternative that gave us harm reduction as people refuse to nicotine, I’m happy to participate in that science, and see if we can do it. “

There are two approaches to regulating tobacco use: one that says there is no safe way to use tobacco and pushes people to quit above all. Others support safer alternatives like smokeless tobacco and other nicotine delivery systems like gum or even electronic cigarettes, and methods to improve overall health.

Devotees insist e-cigarettes address both addiction and the behavioral aspects of smoking. Smokers get the nicotine without the more than 4,000 substances in cigarettes. And they get to keep a cigarette while puffing in and out something that looks like smoke. More than 45 million Americans smoke cigarettes, and about half of smokers try to quit each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“When he came on board, it is very difficult for anti-smoking people who consider themselves health campaigns to simply speak out against electronic cigarettes. They have to deal with the fact that one of the leaders of the community not only supports e-cigarettes, but is willing to be board of directors of the largest electronic cigarette company, “said David Sweanor, a Canadian law professor and tobacco expert who consults with companies and others on industry issues.

In an interview with AP, NJOY General Manager Craig Weiss said of Carmona to its board “is a very powerful step forward” in its mission to “stale cigarettes.”

The company does not disclose how much was to be compensated Carmona his new role.

The market of electronic cigarettes has grown to thousands of users in 2006 to several million worldwide.

Some of the largest tobacco companies in the country have moved to capture some of the growing revenue in the electronic cigarette market. Reynolds American, the second-largest U.S. cigarette manufacturer, began limited distribution of its first electronic cigarette brand Vuse. Lorillard Tobacco, the third-largest tobacco company in the country, has acquired the electronic cigarette maker Blu Ecigs last April. Some e-cigarettes are made to look like a cigarette with a tiny light on the tip that glows like the real thing.

E-cigarettes can be more regulated in the near future. Recent CDC study found that one in five smokers reported using an electronic cigarette, the evidence, and the agency says that more control is needed. And the Food and Drug Administration is expected to approve the regulatory body for the electronic cigarette later in the year, to treat them in the same way as traditional cigarettes and other tobacco products.

“We still have a one in five people in America smoke; … there is still a lot of work to do,” said Carmona. “Dismiss [electronic cigarettes] and do not even think … would be a disservice to the public who are looking for alternatives.”

Electronic cigarettes use

A lot of Americans are informed about electronic cigarette smoke, smoking being a need for gov evaluation and regulation.

images!The CDC found a enormous number of smokers who have tried double the number of them from 10% to 21% in 2011. The numbers grew from 2,5 to 7,4 %; published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research.

Appreciatively 6 from 10 adults in the U.S are aware of the battery power that heat liquid nicotine solution and create a lot of vapors that are inhaled by the smokers.

 “These finding sort of tantalizingly score, the need for more studies of e-cigarettes use and its impacts.” Until there is regulatory authority, it’s going to be more difficult, reassuring around things.”

Some of the largest of tobacco companies have entered in the electronic cigarette market as a part of the industry diversify the traditional cigarette business. The second U.S cigarette producer has begun limited distribution of its first e-cigs. Some of electronic cigarettes are made like cigarettes with tiny light tip glows.

The FDA says that electronic cigarettes have not been completely studied. The federal agency plan to assert regulatory authority over electronic cigarettes and to treat them like traditional cigarettes.

The Food and Drug Administration has said their tests found the specific liquid in some of electronic cigarettes contains toxins beside nicotine. Some public health experts affirmed about carcinogens the same to those found in nicotine therapy, because all nicotine in all tobacco products is extracted from tobacco.

According to some results, the CDC reported about some awareness of e-cigarettes increased from 40% to 60%.

McAfee mentioned about electronic cigarette use that remained unclear. For example, a formal smoker could experiment with them, or could have used an lectronic cigarette for quitting. Current smokers have to use electronic cigarettes in place where tobacco smoking is allowed.

More than 45 million Americans smoke cigarettes, and about half of smokers try to quit each year.

First marketed overseas in 2002, e-cigarettes didn’t become easily available in the U.S. until late 2006. Now, the industry has grown from the thousands of users in 2006 to several million worldwide. Analysts estimate sales could double to $1 billion in 2013. Some companies have even started running TV commercials.

Devotees tout e-cigs as a way to break addiction to real cigarettes. They say the devices address both the nicotine addiction and the behavioral aspects of smoking — the holding of the cigarette, the puffing and exhaling something that looks like smoke — without the more than 4,000 chemicals found in cigarettes.

“The bottom line is … the impact of e-cigarettes on public health remains uncertain,” McAfee said.

Sales of e-cigarettes continue to soar

Producer of electronic cigarettes became aggressive in the USA ads. Burgeoning industry is worried because of tax regulation. The tobacco analyst has started electronic cigarettes demand in the USA.

electronic-cigaretteUpstarts such as Vapor and Logic are spending more on ads and marketing, for to make the case for their production and for smoking alternative. Electronic cigarette makers have ventured into TV in both UK and USA- with ads for their production.

Our mission for cigarettes is to lead USA electronic cigarettes. We think about ourselves analogue. Sales of cigarettes have been declining past decade. According to USA Centers of Control and Prevention of tobacco products consumption. that fell with 30% from 2000 to 2001.

Sales of electronic cigarettes have doubled the past two years from 300$ till 1billion$. The category was compared with Greek yoghurt and energy drinks.

“We continue to expect consumption of e-cigarettes could surpass consumption of traditional cigarettes within the next decade,” said Bonnie Herzog, tobacco analyst at Wells Fargo. E-cigarettes work by vaporizing nicotine-laced liquid that can be inhaled, replicating the effect of smoking without all of the carcinogens.

We continue to expect electronic cigarettes consumption of traditional cigarettes the next decade. Electronic cigarettes work by vaporizing nicotine-lanced.

The success of e-cigarettes may soon hit some obstacles, but health regulators are preparing new restrictions on products and state legislatures are considering tax. E-cigarettes are now run into regulatory gray. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is expected to make recommendations in April on how products should be legal battle with the e-cigarette companies in 2010 after an attempt to block the import of electronic cigarettes and was skeptical of the claims, they are not harmful .

“Further studies are needed to assess the potential public health benefits and risks of e-cigarettes and other tobacco products, novel,” said Jennifer Haliski, spokesman FDA. Manufacturers say they are looking forward to greater control, to make it more difficult for those who have to start importing and distributing low-quality electronic cigarettes in the U.S., but they fear more states plan to tax their products.

Minnesota recently moved to tax e-cigarettes and Hawaii is also considered a tax last year. “The government is going to tax the industry and try to recoup the income they lost from cigarettes,” said Eli Alelov, CEO of Logic, New Jersey electronic cigarette company. Ray Story, CEO of the tobacco vapor electronic cigarette association, warned that raising taxes on electronic cigarettes only benefit the tobacco companies, to the detriment of public health. One reason consumers have tried electronic cigarettes, because they can be as little as half the price of traditional cigarettes sold by major tobacco companies.

The adoption of electronic cigarettes increase caught a big tobacco companies to admit that they can not ignore their consumers taste changes. Lorillard bought blue electronic cigarettes are priced at $ 135, and Reynolds began to develop its technology.

Electronic Cigarette advertising can become the next Great Frontier

When you work as a brand builder, one has to admire that cigarette industry has been able to perform. If right or wrong, they have created some of the most iconic brands in the world, with the help of some great creative agencies, of course. I do not smoke, but I know a lot and understand the accompanying habits and rituals. A few months ago, I was with a friend who’s an avid chain smoker and he pulled out an electronic cigarette and began puffing. Slick little device was intriguing because it seemed very simple and elegant solution.

Soon after, I began to see and hear more about these products. Blu Cigs, certainly the most complex e-cigarette brands with advertising with Stephen Dorff, an attractive young actor, who was a smoker for over twenty years. In one TV spot, shot in black and white, is Steven James Dean (on the beach, for some reason), and says that he’s just so cool, using its Blu. The campaign centers on the slogan “rise from the ashes.” (I’ll save my criticism of this creative later).

My curiosity was piqued, of course, so I decided to investigate how the other brands in this seemingly competitive environment imagine. Their images reflect the name literally-with sexy hipsters dressed to impress and delight some steam at the club.

Ever smoke a different approach and is focused on mass so if you’re a girl-next type of bag or desperate souls like, this product is for you. Optima cigarettes created an image that is more similar to that developed in the back of the Berlin underground techno club. I guess they are allowed to smoke in these enterprises Star Trek.

And then there’s green smoke, the obvious way to play the non-sexual side of smoking. The list goes on, but you get the idea. Each of these brands is trying to find the right way to present themselves smokers. And they fail.

Let’s look at the market. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 20% of adults smoke. That’s about 46 million people. Cigarette industry spends billions in advertising. Smoking costs the health care system in the United States about $ 190 billion a year. Passive smoking costs more than $ 10 billion. So, obviously, there is great potential here, and we just say the U.S. numbers.

I’ve never worked at a tobacco bill, but obviously, in my non-tobacco influence the brain that changes the mentality of this vast and diverse audience will be a massive enterprise. We are basically talking about every type of person on the planet. I can not help it, but the brand builder in me loves the idea of the problem.

And for manufacturers of these products, the revenue opportunity is huge. This means more money for creative agencies? Of course, Big Tobacco has many E-cigarette brands and you can not have one without the other, but at least it’s a change in the right direction.

This leads me to my criticism creative with Blu Cigs and others. Smoker’s life is very different than it was in the 50’s, when smoking was widespread and more widely accepted. Blu Cigs and others forget that fact. None of these brands look or seem genuine, not to mention reflect real life. It is a strange combination of the brand and style of the bad influences of commercials for alcohol energy drinks, plus a huge missed opportunity.

Where explicit images of real people who looked me in the eye and telling me your story? Maybe it’s okay to not do so, sexuality and desire all the time. Maybe, Blu CIGS missed using his celebrity as a representative of a celebrity. If they had humanized him, made him Relatable, he would have made more sense. Just put it in front of the camera and get him to talk, unscripted. He smoked for twenty years, and now he is using your product. This is quite convincing.

Despite this, all of these brands are not able to communicate healthy lifestyle. Even if they say they do it passively or entered in the wrong context. The product is innovative. I believe that the first brand to get it right will have a huge advantage. And, hopefully, they will not use the slogan, as cliché as “rising from the ashes.”

Are electronic cigarettes are a safe alternative to smoking?

Electronic cigarettes in the market recently and is positioned as a “safe” alternative to traditional tobacco smoking, but based on recent research, this popular and growing trend can be just as harmful to your lungs and overall health. It is estimated that about 700,000 people are now using the electronic pens in order to quit smoking.

Despite no burning involved, nicotine is still going on tobacco the devices are imported from China and their nicotine content is not currently regulated prior to the sale or distribution.

A study presented at the annual meeting of the European Respiratory Society in Vienna in February 2012 showed an abrupt increase in airway resistance, leading to a decrease in blood oxygen levels in the e-cigarette users. This can be dangerous for people with coronary heart disease, which prevent plaque in their coronary arteries. In a small study, researchers studied the effect of Athens e-cigarettes for 8 people who had never smoked, with 24.11 smokers with normal lung function and 13 participants with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). All participants used electronic cigarettes for 10 minutes.

The researchers then measured the resistance of the airways and lungs. All participants had a dramatic increase in airway resistance that lasted about 10 minutes. Interestingly, the increase was more pronounced in smokers than nonsmokers, although the effect is observed in people with COPD were less direct. The researchers said it is unclear whether this increase in resistance was any potential long-term effects.

The European Respiratory Society (ERS) guidelines for smoking cessation do not currently recommend the use of such electronic products.

According to Dr. Klaus Lessnau, pulmonary and critical care specialist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, “cigarettes are the leading preventable cause of death and disease in the United States.” He went on to say that, while “e-cigarettes can not be recommended in order to improve lung health, there is, of course, some degree of harm reduction as compared to the regular cigarettes use.”

Dr. Lessnau explained that there is no serious research to date, but he considered that the impact on lung cancer is essential. He explained that the “conventional tobacco producing over 1,000 toxic substances, many of them related to the resin while the electronic cigarettes do not do.” He believes that cardiovascular disease, including myocardial infarction (heart attack) and stroke, may not see a significant impact, as there is a connection with nicotine. Although no major studies to date, Dr. Lessnau said that “it is very likely that lung cancer will be reduced.”

In fact, limited conclusions can be drawn from the preliminary findings of a small study presented in this article. However, the data from this study does add to the growing evidence of the harmful effects of electronic cigarettes. Well-established methods that can help you quit smoking, such as nicotine gum, patches, inhalers and are known as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), and are an advisable alternative to electronic cigarettes.

Reynolds American subsidiary sues electronic cigarette

Wholly owned subsidiary of Reynolds American Inc. has sued Alabama electronic cigarette retailers, accusing the company of trademark infringement of Camel and Winston brands by Reynolds, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.

Reynolds Innovations Inc. filed a lawsuit Friday in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of NC case was referred to a mediator.

Named in the suit is the SAS Technology Inc. Ozark, Alabama, doing business as SaveASmoker.com and save Smoker Inc, and co-owner Eric Slaick.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that heat a liquid nicotine solution in a disposable cartridge and create a steam which is inhaled. Refill cartridges are available in various quantities and tastes, five packages typically cost from $ 9 to $ 18.

By comparison, a carton of cigarettes can cost between $ 25 and $ 50 for most brands name.

Reynolds Innovations, said the company has launched a product using images that are “colorable imitations and confusingly similar to” Camel and Winston trademarks.

When Reynolds filed suit, SaveASmoker.com list of flavors »Camel Tobacco” and “Winston” on its website, as well as U.S. Blend – “comparable to Marlboro brand» – and Newport, the best-selling brand of menthol Lorillard Inc.

Brian May, a spokesman for Altria, the parent company of Philip Morris, said the company has not filled a similar lawsuit against SAS technology and other companies.

Reynolds said the claim of such images “will continue to lead to consumer confusion and likelihood of irreparable harm to the company.”

Press Secretary Brian Reynolds Hatchell said the company declined to comment beyond the lawsuit.

Slaick said Monday that SAS pulled all references to the Camel and Winston from the site and the shelves of its stores.

The products now on his website for his MaxxVapor Pro brand. The company lists the retail locations in the South-East for their products, but not in North Carolina.

Slaick said the company sources its electronic cigarettes from a Chinese manufacturer who used the Camel and Winston images as part of the difference in styles and tastes of its product options.

“We just went with what the manufacturer provided and not heard complaints from Reynolds,” Slaick said. “As soon as we learned of the lawsuit, we pulled them from a site in minutes.

“It was never our intention to take the RJ Reynolds or trick consumers into error there was a connection.”

Reynolds has moved into the electronic cigarette category with Vuse, which is being test-marketed in the Triad at select Tarheel Tobacco outlets.

E-Cigarettes are banned in Canada, but smoking isn’t?

I do not pretend to know much about the electronic cigarette industry – my interest has only recently aroused while research article I wrote for the site – but I had to laugh today after reading a news site that the sale of electronic cigarettes containing nicotine is illegal in Canada, but the sale of real cigarettes is not. And apparently Canada is not the only country that’s doing this.

The advertisement, import and sale of e-cigarettes containing nicotine is banned in Canada in March of 2009. Since that time, thousands of Canadians who use them have been forced to buy them in other countries, and to send them abroad, where they can be seized by customs officials.

E-cigarettes contain nicotine cartridges are not prohibited, as well as other nicotine replacement therapies like Nicorette gum or the nicotine patch. This question set off a wave of disputes, so far, to the end.

Health Canada has not made use of e-cigarettes with nicotine illegal (yet) and gives the following reasons for this prohibition:

• Improper use can lead to nicotine poisoning

• They have not been allowed to market

• They can be addictive

• Lack of quality control

Many Canadians suspect that the ban is not because of health problems at all, but for millions of dollars in state tax revenues generated each year from the sale of tobacco products. If more people switch to e-cigarettes, less people buy the real deal, which puts more pressure on the tobacco industry. It also means that there will be less tax dollars to fill the pockets of the Canadian government.

What do you think is the real reason behind this ban? Are you as unraveled as I am about the double standard that exists here?Why would Health Canada allow the sale of cigarettes, that kill hundreds of thousands of people each year, but to ban the sale of electronic cigarettes because they believe they are unsafe? I welcome your comments, as I continue to search for answers to these questions.

Robert Pattinson puffing on electronic cigarettes

The “Twilight” star was a bit nervous at the ceremony, presenting an award to his “Bel Ami” costar Uma Thurman, who also took a puff on his e-cigarette.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson was eternal, with no Kristen Stewart on its side in the women’s Elle Awards in Hollywood Awards. He didn’t walk the carpet but did pose briefly for photos with Elle Fanning and Jamie King, both dressed in a stylish and sophisticated design of the main event sponsor Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa’s sleek and sophisticated design.

Pattinson actually seemed pretty nervous about presenting an award to his Bel Ami costar Uma Thurman at the annual awards – also sponsored by L’Oreal Paris, David Yurman and Lexus – held at the Four Seasons on Monday. In fact, Pattinson was spotted sucking on it now ubiquitous electronic cigarettes before and after he took the stage. It is hard to hide that bright blue light, even if you keep it under the table. And while there is no smoke from the electronic cigarette is an unmistakable white clubs out of the e-smoker’s nose and mouth.

Pattinson has previously been seen puffing quit smokeless gadget in New York premiere of David Cronenberg film, Cosmopolis, and the Los Angeles premiere of a new ballet choreographed by Natalie Portman husband Benjamin Millipied, in moving parts, September 23.

Branding matchmaker, Michael Heller, he is the one who first gave Twilight star – and his girlfriend – artificial cagier connection. “I personally gave Robert Pattinson those electronic cigarettes at the wedding of my friend,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was before he and Kristen Stewart broke up. I gave it to both of them.”

Pattinson finally took the stage to present his onscreen wife Bel Ami with her award Elle. But first he sang her praises for her choice of complex and diverse roles in such films as Dangerous Liasons, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and for her Golden Globe-winning role in Hysterical Blindness.

“I first met with Uma on a movie called Bel Ami and WS pretty crazy experience. She played my wife, the character is meant to be a smart, talented, and witty and better in bed than me, obviously, the role is very difficult to quit.”

“She has a presence that is almost overwhelming,” Pattinson continues. “People quickly forget who they are, when they are in her orbit. And crew members who had not smoked in years suddenly start chain smoking because she provides bowls of tens of thousands of cigarettes for no reason.”

Earlier in the evening, he offered to Thurman, who sat next to him at the dinner table with their agents, puff off an electronic cigarette. And new mom gladly took one puff and just one puff.

Tobacco vapor electronic cigarette Association responds to V2 Electronic Cigarettes

The Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association (TVECA) is announcing to the “e-cigarette” industry that V2 Electronic cigarette Company advertises cigarettes in a corporate video, that their products are “designed for long-term smokers who have had no success in the care of traditional cigarettes. V2 is also establishing an electronic cigarette “association”, who do not believe that electronic cigarettes tobacco in light December 10, 2010 court decision of the mandates that electronic cigarettes are really tobacco products, not drug devices, which is regulated as such by the FDA.

The TVECA and its members works with state, local and federal agencies, as well as e-cigarettes associations around the world to spread science and facts about electronic cigarettes. In fact, TVECA recently joined CORESTA, and is hosting the first electronic cigarette scientific subgroup November 7th and 8th 2012 in Atlanta.

E-cigarettes gain popularity as a way for quitting


It’s called “vamping”, – puffing on e-cigarettes. Actor Johnny Depp in the blank “The Tourist”, and actress Katherine Heigl use an electronic cigarette while back on “The David Letterman Show.”

Electronic cigarettes are made of plastic and metal, haven’t tobacco. The battery heats the solution containing propylene glycol to create a vapor that smokers inhale. Decision contained in a disposable cartridge, you can get dozens of flavors and with different levels of nicotine.

They do not stain your teeth and fingers, and there’s no smoke. No wonder people are turning to electronic cigarettes as a way to quit smoking – despite warnings from health experts who warn against their use.

“I think that people have the opinion that electronic cigarettes are harmless,” said Dr. Gale Burstein, Erie County Health Commissioner. “We do not know the long-term effects on the health of people who use electronic cigarettes. Moreover, we do not know the effects of passive vapor. It’s still a public health problem.”

Medical experts question the effectiveness of e-cigarettes as a tool to quit smoking. E-cigarettes are unregulated, and they have no scientific studies are needed, if they were in charge of the Federal narcotics.

“We do not know enough about the electronic cigarettes to recommend them,” said Richard O’Connor, Associate Professor of Oncology, Department of Health behavior in Roswell Park Cancer Institute. “They may be useful for some people. Warning that the lack of industry standards and regulations. Another issue that was not any good clinical trials, which is the gold standard to see if there is something! D works for smoking.”

Proponents argue that there is enough anecdotal evidence to support the effectiveness of e-cigarettes as a tool to quit smoking. In spring 2011 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that electronic cigarettes can help quit smoking.

“You just hit it whenever you get the urge at a certain time of the day,” Kelly said Randles, 34, who turned out to e-cigarettes in September last year. “This is totally different from cigarettes, because you do not have to finish it all. Take a couple of puffs, put it down and do what you do.”

Electronic cigarettes were first sold in China in 2003. They did not become available in the United States until 2006. Today, about 2.5 million Americans use e-cigarettes, tobacco vapor electronic cigarette Association reported. Most use it as a substitute for cigarettes, according to a survey published earlier this year by the University Of Alberta School Of Public Health.

Randles – the mother of two boys aged 11 and 13 – said electronic cigarettes she buys from vapor trail in South Buffalo, a healthier option than it used Matlboro online.

“Here’s the thing. I get a taste of Marlboro, not menthol,” Randles said.

Contrail co-owner Andrew Osborne, 29, said he had given up smoking for 18 months just to get back up. Now he is using electronic cigarettes as an alternative to conventional cigarettes.

“Nicotine does something for you,” said Osborne. He compares it to caffeine.

Growing concern that children and teens can use the electronic cigarette as a prelude to the tobacco cigarettes prompted Governor Andrew Cuomo to ban the use of electronic cigarettes within 100 feet of the entrance to public or private schools. Legislation came into force on 5 September. The second provision – banning the sale of electronic cigarettes to anyone under 18 years old – comes into force on January 1.

Get a Free Electronic Cigarette

Electronic Cigarette by Helen from Virginia says: “My family and I are delighted with my results with the electronic cigarette. I have been smoke-free for a month and not even crave a real cigarette. My wish has finally come true. Thank you.”

Electronic cigarettes have become eminent because of its qualities that guarantee everyone from harmful content typically found in tobacco cigarettes. E cigarettes or e-cigs, as these gadgets accidentally called, goes through batteries. Some models have a USB included in the item for easy charge, while others require a separate charging station. Because it works on energy, simulating feelings smoking tobacco cigarettes is actually – no harmful ingredients – has led it to be called as electronic cigarettes.

According to Dr. Farsalinos of Greece presented in 2012 by the European Society of Cardiology in Germany in early August, “Given the extreme dangers associated with smoking, currently available data suggest that electronic cigarettes are less harmful and substituting tobacco electronic cigarette could be useful to health.”

Although some people say that it is just going to be another useless fad, like nicotine patches, studies so far have been consistent in the conclusion that of all the alternative tools out there smoking, electronic cigarettes are, by far, the most effective. On the one hand, it is to hold the nicotine, in addition, as it can be. Secondly, it is an opportunity to address the psychological dependence on inhalation and puffing. Free trial kits, such as those offered by Electroniccigarettehub.org, are among the most popular searches on the internet alone, giving proof of how he gained much popularity since it was introduced to the market in 2007.

Of course, with professional researchers in the science and practice of medicine vouch for the effectiveness of e-cigarettes, there should be no reason for one to not switch to electronic cigarettes, especially if one wants to improve their health.

Samuel McCumbee from NC said: “I now live six months without a real cigarette, after 14 years of smoking, due to water vapor cigarette I’m so much healthier, my smokers cough is gone, and I do not stink. ‘.

Electronic Cigarettes


Smoking causes more deaths than alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamine and other recreational drugs combined. Cigarettes contain more than a dozen carcinogens and 1 out of every 3 cancers-related deaths is due to tobacco. Smokers, even while taking the dangerous consequences of smoking just do not have the will power or the gumption to quit. There are various methods of quitting to help smokers quit, including nicotine patches, gum and electronic cigarettes, where the main principle is to give addicts nicotine “hit” without the harmful carcinogens found in tobacco. The most popular on is the Electronic Cigarette or E-cigarettes.

What’s an electronic cigarette?

The electronic cigarette is a device that simulates the process of smoking, producing a mist that has the same feeling (sometimes the same taste, too) from smoking. The concept of electronic cigarettes has been around since the 60s, but tobacco is not really considered to be dangerous then, and it took until 2003 for the first smoke-free electronic cigarette to hit the market.

Electronic cigarette manufacturers claim that they like real cigarettes, except that there are no harmful effects to health, because there is no burning, no tobacco or smoke. In addition, since there is no passive smoking, passive smoking and environmental pollution due to butt litter or smoke.

What’s in an electronic cigarette?

Electronic cigarette consists mainly of three parts: a cartridge injector and power supply
Cartridge mouthpiece, which usually holds the liquid that will evaporate. Atomizer is the heating element and the liquid evaporates, and each of them contains a power supply, as a paid plug, USB drives, or batteries.

Electronic cigarette produces nicotine vapor gives though it looks like smoke is actually sprayed air. Some electronic cigarette substitute nicotine vapor with other flavors like vanilla, chocolate, etc., although some anti-smoking groups feel that this may encourage minors to smoke. As a tool for quitting smoking, some manufacturers even look to reproduce the taste of such Matlboro online, Matlboro online, etc.

Are e-cigs less harmful?

E-cigarettes are primary used as a substitute for smoking or smoking cessation device to help smokers quit smoking, although the lack of research and its relative novelty to make it difficult to judge its impact on health. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), known carcinogens have been identified in the nicotine cartridges, and there were also fears it could be sold to young people. However, the FDA methods were ridiculed in various magazines for lack of evidence, and who claimed that the nicotine content was much lower than the actual cigarettes as a health hazard.

The World Health Organization (WHO), on the other hand expressed his opinion that, while electronic cigarettes are usually sold as devices for nicotine replacement therapy did not have any research to back up that claim and refused to approve the device.

Research conducted at the University of East London suggest that nicotine does not seem central, but other smoking-related manners, taste, resembling smoke steam and hand movements help reduce the discomfort associated with tobacco abstinence in the short term.

In an online poll conducted by the University Of Alberta School Of Public Health in 2009 among 303 smokers, it was found that the electronic cigarette a cigarette replacement resulted in lower health problems, the kind that usually bothers smokers (less cough, increased ability to perform, improved taste and smell).

Conclusion

Although there is no conclusive evidence that electronic cigarettes are completely harmless, at least, all the research, studies show that they are, and certainly less harmful than traditional cigarettes. They also provide the means to quit smoking, imitating the manner of long-time users of the right-hand movements, breathing and spray vapor that simulates smoke.

Electronic cigarettes can be beneficial to health

Smoking is the most preventable risk factor for heart and lung disease and is expected to cause one billion deaths in the 21st century. Electronic cigarettes have been sold in recent years as a safer smoking habit, with millions of people already using it around the world.

Electronic cigarettes simulate the effect of smoking on the production of inhaled vapor. The device consists of a battery, a cartridge containing liquid and the heating element is heated and vaporized liquid. Laboratory analysis of liquids shows that they are less toxic than regular cigarettes. Most studies found no nitrosamines, but even in the studies that have been detected nitrosamines levels were detected 500-1400 times less than the amount present in a tobacco cigarette. This means that electronic cigarettes should be used daily for 4-12 months to get the amount of nitrosamines found in one cigarette tobacco.

Since heart disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among smokers, with 40% of deaths in smokers due to ischemic heart disease alone, the research team decided to conduct the first clinical study of acute effects of electronic cigarettes on the function of the heart. They decided to compare their results with the acute effects of conventional cigarettes on cardiac function, as electronic cigarettes are sold only for smokers, as an alternative to the habit.

Previous studies of the research group and others have shown that acute inhalation smoking causes significant defects in myocardial function. This means that sub clinical dysfunction already present in healthy asymptomatic young people who smoke tobacco cigarettes. The aim was to assess the extent to which these symptoms appear similar preclinical population after using electronic cigarettes.

The researchers measured myocardial function in 20 healthy young daily smokers aged 25-45 years before and after smoking one cigarette tobacco and 22 daily users of e-cigarettes the same age before and after using the device for 7 minutes.

Experienced users of electronic cigarettes have been studied, since they use the device more rapidly than the first time users. Although both groups were equal age, users of electronic cigarettes was 44% higher lifetime exposure to tobacco smoking than smokers.

Electronic cigarette, commercially available liquid nicotine concentration 11mg/ml was used (NOBACCO USA Mix). This has been tested by independent laboratory toxicology and found not to contain nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

Myocardial function was investigated using cardiac ultrasound (echocardiogram) and homodynamic measurements (blood pressure and heart rate).

The researchers found that smoking one cigarette tobacco resulted in significant acute myocardial dysfunction, but electronic cigarettes no acute adverse effects on cardiac function. Smoking tobacco cigarettes were important homodynamic consequences, with a significant increase in systolic and diastolic blood pressure and heart rate. Unlike electronic cigarettes are produced only a slight increase in diastolic blood pressure. Dr. Farsalinos said: “This indicates that although nicotine is present in the liquid used (11mg/ml), it is absorbed at a lower cost than conventional cigarette smoking.”
