New Mayo Clinic Study Further Implicates Contaminated THC Oils in Respiratory Disease Outbreaks and Refutes Claim that Store-Bought Nicotine E-Liquids are Involved

October 22nd, 2019

A study published yesterday in the New England Journal of Medicine by a team of researchers at the Mayo Clinic provides further evidence that contaminated THC oils are likely playing a major role in the vaping-associated respiratory disease outbreak and makes it even less likely that store-bought nicotine e-liquids are playing any role at all. Here is the key evidence provided by the paper: 1. The overwhelming majority of patients admitted to vaping THC oils. Approximately 76% of the patients studied who reported on product

Public Health Expert On E-cigarette Panic

October 22nd, 2019

 Researchers are working hard to determine the cause of more than 500 reported cases of lung illness affecting e-cigarette users.

New Steps To Address Epidemic of Youth E-Cigarette Use

October 22nd, 2019

More than a year ago, the FDA unveiled a broad policy to reduce the death and disease caused by smoking. Smoking remains the number one preventable cause of death in America, killing nearly half a million people a year. If we aren’t successful in more sharply reducing the rate of addiction to tobacco, then we’ll continue to see this needless death and disease. FDA’s new legal authorities to regulate tobacco ‒ as part of the Tobacco Control Act ‒ empowered

Smokers who successfully quit using e-cigarettes are far less likely to relapse and pick up tobacco, according to a new study. Published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), the study examined vapers– smokers and those who do both for a period of two years and wanted to see how effective e-cigarettes were in keeping people off cigarettes. “Of the e-cigarette users, 61.1 percent remained abstinent from tobacco (while 23.1 percent and 26.0 percent of tobacco-only smokers and dual users achieved

During 2001-2004, the average annual smoking-attributable health-care expenditures nationwide were approximately $96 billion. When combined with productivity losses of $97 billion, the total economic burden of smoking is approximately $193 billion per year.” Comparing the health risks of tobacco smoking to the Swine Flu brings out some interesting and thought provoking statistics.

In a recent study, scientists have found electronic cigarette vapor has NO toxic effect on the cells found in human lungs. Fresh research, funded by British American Tobacco (BAT), suggested inhaling nicotine vapor could be as safe as breathing air. To perform these experiments, the tobacco giant teamed up with the MatTek Corporation, maker of human cell models used in “in vitro” laboratory experiments. Scientists then used a “smoking robot” to expose these lung cell replicas to tobacco smoke, two
