Ecigs and therapeutic claim, what is the risk and where do we go? 0

A Stanford University School of Medicine study shows that cessation themes are prevalent across advertising by e-cigarette brands with implicit messaging predominating over explicit quit claims.

Over 6 months (January – June 2015) advertising by 23 leading e-cigarette brands through social media channels and blogs as well as user-generated content (testimonials) appearing within brand-sponsored Web sites were analyzed by Stanford researchers. They isolated an explicit claim of cessation efficacy with unambiguous statements in favor of smoking cessation success. They also point out implicit claims that use euphemisms such as “It works”.

NCBI: Substituting tobacco cigarettes with electronic cigarettes may substantially reduce exposure to tobacco toxicant. 0

Conclusions

Our findings are consistent with the idea that substituting tobacco cigarettes with electronic cigarettes may substantially reduce exposure to selected tobacco-specific toxicants....

Technological Advancements

Technology continues evolving daily and involves almost every aspect of human existence. It was only a matter of time that someone would invent the means to smoke electronically. The simple technology involved in making e-cigarettes and the e-juices or aerosol liquids enable former tobacco smokers the leisure of getting nicotine in a modern and much cleaner method.

Cost-Effective Vaping Devices

Compared to conventional cigarettes and tobacco products in general, the tools needed for vaping come at a fraction of the cost. While the price of tobacco continually rises, smokers literally save thousands of dollars annually by converting to electronic smoking. Additionally, the savings become immediate once a smoker makes the conversion.

Forbes: Royal College Of Physicians Says E-Cigarettes Can 'Prevent Almost All The Harm From Smoking' 0

In 1962, two years before U.S. Surgeon General Luther Terry released his famous report on the health hazards of smoking, the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) covered the same subject in a report that went further than Terry’s, linking cigarettes to cardiovascular disease as well as lung cancer and chronic bronchitis. Today the RCP issued another landmark report that should inspire imitation in the United States, endorsing e-cigarettes as a harm-reducing alternative to the combustible, tobacco-containing kind.
