Many of my friends know that I quit smoking in November 2013. I was able to do that by switching to an electronic vaporizer (it’s not a cigarette). Since switching to a vaporizer I have also reduced my nicotine level of juice (the stuff you vaporize) to a very low amount and working towards a zero nicotine solution with the eventual goal at the end of 2015 to be free of it all together.
Let’s first agree to the following:
- Smoking Tobacco is bad for you
- Smoking Tobacco is burning of a material (actual combustion)
- States receive money from Lawsuit settlement from Big Tobacco
It’s called the Master Settlement Agreement
States get money every year from Tobacco sales for 25 years starting in year 2000
- The amount of money that the Manufacture’s are required to annually contribute to the states varies according to several factors. All payments are based primarily on the number of cigarettes sold.
- The more cigarettes sold/consumed the more money California gets!
Now that we have agree to the above let’s now watch the anti vaping commercials that the CDPH is putting out to discourage people from using a vaporizer instead of a cigarette.
If the FDA and Cal Depth Health and all other states REALLY cared about your health there would be an outright ban on Tobacco. But there isn’t
Let’s start with the videos that the CDPH is putting out
Only Kids like candy flavors?
They say kids are taking up e-cigs in large numbers, but they ignore the fact that the ones who do are also stopping their use of regular cigarettes.
They say that Propylene Glycol in e-cigs is dangerous? Then why does the FDA approve it as a dis-infectant in hospitals? PDF
Propylene glycol and dipropylene glycol were first registered in 1950 and 1959, respectively, by the FDA for use in hospitals as air disinfectants. (page 4, paragraph 1).
2. FQPA Safety Factor
The FQPA Safety Factor (as required by the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996) is intended to provide an additional 10-fold safety factor (10X), to protect for special sensitivity in infants and children to specific pesticide residues in food, drinking water, or residential exposures, or to compensate for an incomplete database. The FQPA Safety Factor has been removed (i.e., reduced to 1X) for propylene glycol and dipropylene glycol because there is no pre- or post-natal evidence for increased susceptibility following exposure. Further, the Agency has concluded that there are no endpoints of concern for oral, dermal, or inhalation exposure to propylene glycol and dipropylene glycol based on the low toxicity observed in studies conducted near or abovetesting limit doses as established in the OPPTS 870 series harmonized test guidelines. Therefore, quantitative risk assessment was not conducted for propylene glycol and dipropylene glycol.
Propylene Glycol also used in Asthma inhalers
I could go on and on with a link bomb post. But let’s just watch this video
Don’t fall for F.U.D.
Think for yourself and ask a vapor (me)
