Are E-cigarettes Safe? Doctors Speak Out About Ecigs

Are E-cigarettes Safe? Doctors Speak Out About Ecigs
(pictured above: Dr. Joel Nitzkin, Tobacco Control Task Force)

Recently, BBC Global News interviewed Dr. Joel Nitzkin, head of the Tobacco Control Task Force at The American Association of Public Health Physicians (www.aaphp.org). They wanted to learn more about e-cigarettes and wondered, "Will vaping catch on?"

Vaping advocates say it's healthier than the alternative. In fact, it could save millions of lives.

So they called up Dr. Joel Nitzkin, and asked him about e-cigarettes, e-liquid and vaping. Here's some of what he had to say...

"When a person uses an e-cigarette and inhales the vapor, they refer to it as 'vaping' instead of smoking because there is no smoke. There is no combustion. There is only vapor."

When asked to describe a typical e-cigarette, Dr. Nitzkin had this to say:

"A typical e-cigarette is a metal tube that has a drop of what they call e-cigarette liquid, a battery and a little heater element that's designed in such a way that when you inhale through the tube, the person using the e-cigarette inhales the vapor in a manner that feels like cigarette smoke. The vapor delivers a dose of nicotine similar to what one would get from a puff of cigarette, but without any of the other toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke."

The BBC interviewer, asking for clarification, then said, "So when the vaper inhales the vapor, he or she gets the nicotine hit that they would from a drag on a regular cigarette, but there's no passive smoking, and presumable, there's less lung damage."

Dr. Nitzkin responded:

"Yes, that's exactly the case. The lung damage, the cancer and the heart disease risk are all due to chemicals in cigarette smoke other than nicotine. The nicotine is almost totally harmless."

In fact, nicotine does not cause any disease.

So there you have it. These are direct quotes from a renowned medical physician who is at the forefront of promoting and protecting public health. Btw, Dr. Nitzkin is NOT paid by, nor influenced by the e-cigarette industry at all. But the fact that he cares so strongly about public health and heads the Tobacco Control Task Force should speak volumes for ecigs. Andf I think that it does.

NOTE: This does not mean that Dr. Nitzkin endorses ecigs. Whether he does or not, I really have no clue. I'm just relaying information and news that is obviously important for people to know.

What's The American Association of Public Health Physicians?

So who or what is the American Association of Public Health Physician? The AAPHP is a professional association of public health physicians. Their motto is "The Voice of Public Health Physicians - Guardians of the Public's Health".

The AAPHP was founded in 1954, and since its inception it has been been recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA) as a medical specialty society, with formal representation in the AMA House of Delegates. Some of their major current issues include tobacco control, injury prevention, disease control, policy and management training, workforce issues, and issues pertaining to access to health care, health equity, health disparities, cultural competence and preventive services.

So Are E-Cigarettes Safe?

Are e-cigarettes safe? Well, I'll leave that one up to you to figure out for yourself. But based on the opinions and testimonies of doctors the world over, the answer is pretty much "Yes". E-cigarettes don't produce any actual smoke, and the e-liquids themselves generally contain only distilled water, nicotine (which is optional!), and USP Grade glycerin.

Some e-cigarette e-liquids also contain natural and artificial flavors. Of course, these flavors depend on what you flavors enjoy when vaping...vanilla, chocolate, coffee, cherry, menthol, regular tobacco, etc.

But bottom line, e-cigarettes contain No Tar, No Ash, No Smoke and No Odor. Plus, they're a whole lot cheaper! :)

So if you smoke tobacco cigarettes, I think the answer is quite clear. Either quit smoking completely, or switch to e-cigarettes instead!

Deal of the Day

Celebrity E-cigarette Vapers Popping Up Everywhere

Ever since Johnny Depp vaped an e-cigarette in the movie The Tourist (video below), more and more people have been asking which celebrities use e-cigarettes, and searching online for the celebrities who use e-cigarettes.

Well, truth be told, many celebrities use e-cigarettes nowadays. And like so many other very smart people, Hollywood celebrities have also said goodbye to regular tobacco cigarettes...forever!

And so, e-cigarettes are popping up everywhere. From talk shows, to sitcoms, to Hollywood movies. From A-listers, to B-listers, to C-listers. They've all come to recognize the many benefits of e-cigarettes vs. regular tobacco cigarettes.

So, off the top of my head, here are a few of the many Hollywood celebrities who use e-cigarettes...

Some Celebrity E-cigarette Users

Dennis Quaid - Celebrity e-cigarette sightings don't end on the small screen. In fact, a wide range of celebrities have been seen vaping on their ecigs.

In this photo, Dennis Quaid was spotted vaping his ecig in a Hollywood parking lot.

Natasha Lyonne - In this photo, Natasha Lyonne, star of American Reunion, talks about her ecig while on OWN's The Rosie O'Donnell Show.

When asked, she said that a major health scare (open heart surgery) caused her to make the switch to ecigs, and that she hasn't looked back since!

Ronnie Wood - Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones vapes an e-cigarette.

With his reputation for drug and alcohol abuse, Ronnie Wood's appreciation of electronic cigarettes is surely a testimonial for their viability as an alternative to regular tobacco cigarettes. Rock on Ronnie!

Dr. Milton Beaurefard - Dr. Milton Beauregard, on  FOX's Alcatraz, had this to say about his e-cigarette:

"It may be the only thing about this century that I have found bearable."

Leonardo DiCaprio - In this photo, Leonardo DiCaprio vapes on his e-cigarette while riding his bike around town.

The actor was biking through Manhattan's East Village with fellow actors Lukas Haas (Inception), Tobey Maguire (the Spider-Man film trilogy) and Kevin Dillon (Entourage, Platoon).

Two days later, he was also seen vaping away on an e-cigarette in Los Angeles, while grabbing some Chinese food with friends.

And yeah, here's that movie scene with Johnny Depp vaping an e-cigarette in the movie The Tourist. It's the scene where Frank Tupelo (Johnny Depp) first meets Elise Clifton-Ward (Angelina Jolie).

South Beach Smoke Introduces Disposable E-Cigarettes

South Beach Smoke Introduces Disposable E-Cigarettes

South Beach Smoke, a highly popular ecig brand, has just introduced their brand new disposable e-cigarette. These disposable e-cigarettes are modeled from South Beach Smoke's signature ecig design, and come with the same features that their non-disposable e-cigarettes come with.

Features like: an ultra-comfortable silicon mouthpiece and an orange LED ash  light that glows when you inhale the ecig vapor. So where do they differ in the actual construction? Well, the other South Beach Smoke Designs are 2 and 3-piece models, whereas, the new disposable is a 1-piece design, housing the battery, cartridge and atomizer.

In addition, the South Beach Smoke disposable e-cigarettes are also pre-filled with the liquid nicotine. And because they're disposable, there's no charging of the battery. Basically, they're designed to be smoked as soon as you take them out of the package.

According to South Beach Smoke, "...sometimes you just need the simplest, easiest way to get your nicotine. Even for electronic smokers, sometimes when life gets too hectic, it may seem that just grabbing a pack of regular smokes here and there will be okay. But when the tobacco is out of your life, don’t you want it to stay that way?"

For current e-smokers, the South Beach Smoke disposable e-cigarettes allow you to have South Beach Smoke quality without needing to charge batteries. And whether you're a college student, or a professional with a really hectic schedule, the South Beach Smoke disposable e-cigarette is an excellent addition to your ecig repertoire.

V2 Cigs Introduces $5 Flat Rate Shipping And Free Shipping Options

V2 Cigs Introduces $5 Flat Rate Shipping & Free Shipping
For All Orders Over $200

This week there is some more great news from V2 Cigs, the e-cigarette company that is leading the pack in the ecig industry (for several reasons). V2 Cigs has announced that it will now offer $5 flat rate shipping on all orders placed in the U.S.

So whether you order a Power-Cig, a V2 Starter Kit, or any number of other things, standard mail shipping is only $5. And that's regardless of weight. So now you don't have to worry about how much the shipping price will be on your V2 Cigs order. As long as your shipping address is within the U.S., the rate is just $5, regardless of weight and regardless of the number of products you order.

These new changes will save you money on every V2 Cigs order you make. And if you want to save even more money (and who doesn't), use the V2Cigs.com coupon code "fullvapor" to save an additional 10% on every order. Just see the end of this post for more details.

Of course, expedited shipping options will still be available, including Ground, 3 Day delivery and Overnight shipping.

IMPORTANT: Their prices are still the same. Unlike many of the other e-cigarette companies, V2 Cigs doesn't inflate their prices in order to offer free shipping.

Adding the $5 flat rate and free shipping option is just one of the many steps V2 Cigs is currently taking to enhance the ordering process.

So why did V2 Cigs decide to offer this? Well, because customer feedback is a strong driving force at V2. Customers spoke and V2 listened. As Dan Recio, Co-Founder of V2 Cigs stated:

E-cigarettes May Help Improve Your Memory

Electronic cigarettes, the battery-operated devices that provide nicotine via inhaled vapor, may help improve memory. That was the finding of research presented at the British Psychological Society's annual conference (April 18-20, 2012).

The study was conducted on 85 regular smokers (men and women) by Dr. Lynne Dawkins of the University of East London. The participants of the study (all smokers) were randomly given an e-cigarette with either nicotine, or a placebo. Some participants were told to just hold the e-cigarette without actually the device.

After 5 minutes of using the e-cigarette as much as they wanted to, participants completed a cravings and mood questionnaire. They then repeated the questionnaire 20 minutes after using the e-cigarette. In addition, 60 participants completed a working memory task 10-15 minutes after they used the e-cigarette. The working memory task included the Letter Cancellation Task and the Brown-Peterson Working Memory Task.

Results of the E-cigarette Study

Among the study's participants who tested for working memory, it was found that the men and women who used the e-cigarettes with nicotine (as opposed to the placebo, or not using the device at all) maintained better working memory.

The nicotine group was the fastest to complete the Letter Cancellation Task. The "just hold" group came in second, while the placebo group came in third. The worst performance (measured by the numbers of errors made) was the "just hold" group. The nicotine group performed best across all 6 trials of the memory test, and retained better memory performance at the longer time intervals.

Dr. Lynne Dawkins stated that they were interested in exploring the effectiveness of electronic cigarettes since relatively little research had been done. She also noted that it was interesting to see the reduction of carvings and effectiveness of e-cigarettes on men and women.

"Perhaps more significantly, we found that e-cigarettes with nicotine help maintain working memory in smokers who have not smoked for an hour or two. People who choose to stop smoking without using a nicotine substitute may therefore suffer a period during which their working memory levels dip until their bodies adjust to the reduced levels of nicotine. E-cigarettes seem to be effective at reducing this problem for men and women. However, in this study we did not look at the issue of whether people feel self-conscious about using the devices in public."

So there you have it. According to the study, e-cigarettes help to improve working memory among smokers. So should you use e-cigarettes just to improve your memory? In my opinion, no. Switch to e-cigarettes because they're a much better (and cheaper) alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes.

Fact: E-cigarettes contain no tar, no carbon monoxide, no ash and no smoke.

Personally, I think the increase in memory may be due to the nicotine itself. It's widely known that nicotine enhances memory and concentration. In addition, nicotine also enhances alertness, increases arousal and decreases pain.

So my take on this study is that it shows two things: One, e-cigarettes are truly an effective means in which to deliver nicotine. And two, nicotine improves memory. But beyond that, I don't see anything all too earth-shattering.

The real story here is that e-cigarettes definitely allow you to get your nicotine fix, but without many of the chemicals (4,000 plus chemicals) that are found in tobacco cigarettes, which is definitely awesome.

Bottom line, e-cigarettes are the way to go, especially if you want to find an awesome alternative to smoking.

Happy vaping!

Volcano Ecigs Introduces New MAGMA Clear Cartomizers

Volcano Ecigs Introduces New MAGMA Clear Cartomizers

The new MAGMA Clear Cartomizers by Volcano Ecigs are a new take on a classic Volcano carto design. The new MAGMA Clear Cartomizers are built using the same construction concept as their Tube Tank Refill cartomizers. So yeah, they're refillable as well.

But there are a couple of key differences here. One, these cartos are clear. And because they're clear, you can easily see how much e-liquid you have left. And two, they doesn't require a tank (tankomizer). You can simply fill them with e-liquid and you're immediately ready to vape!

The new Volcano Ecigs clear cartomizers are now in stock (and on sale) for $10.99 for a pack of 5 blank cartomizers. They're dual coil cartomizers with a low 1.5 ohm resistance.

Note: These new Volcano clear cartos will be available in 2.0 ohms very soon. Apparently, there was a mix-up at the factory, and the first shipment arrived with the 1.5 ohm resistance rating. All shipments after the first one will be 2.0 ohm rated dual coil cartomizers. 

How Do You Fill These Clear Cartomizers?

To fill (and refill) the Volcano Ecigs MAGMA Clear Cartomizer, just pop off the top rubber cap and drip your e-liquid (also referred to as juice) down onto the filler inside the cartomizer until the e-liquid saturates the filler. Then, just put the cap back on. Add a drip tip and you're good to go!
