What Do E-Cigs Matter?

What Do E-Cigs Matter? | E-Cigarettes | Scoop.it

Smokers have tried their best to ally themselves with vapers. I think that most vapers ally themselves with Smokers. But there is an enormous alliance of interests which militate against vapers. Note that I speak about vapers rather than e-cigs.

 

The decision of the New York Council to ban e-cigs as though they were tobacco cigs is scientific nonsense. That is perfectly obvious. It follows therefore that NYC intends to denormalise/demonise vapers purely upon appearances.

Ace Cato's curator insight, April 14, 2014 10:19 PM

I learned that vapors or so called "e-cigarettes" was invented by a company called Ruyan in in China, 2003, and first introduced to the U.S. market in 2007. The question are, what do e-cigarettes matter? Do they really help you to stop from smoking? So, it's not surprising that, when a new device that has the potential to help people quit smoking hits the market, many smokers are willing to give it a try.

More Vaping, More Smoking: The Impossibly Implausible Case Against E-Cigs

More Vaping, More Smoking: The Impossibly Implausible Case Against E-Cigs | E-Cigarettes | Scoop.it

A front-page story in yesterday’s New York Times notes the divide within the anti-smoking movement on the merits of electronic cigarettes, as exemplified by the split between Boston University public health professor Michael Siegel and his former mentor, Stanton Glantz, director of the University of California at San Francisco’s Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education. The Siegel camp sees e-cigarettes, which deliver nicotine without tobacco or smoke, as a promising harm reduction tool, while the Glantz camp sees them as a public health menace. Because health reporter Sabrina Tavernise accurately summarizes the arguments of both sides, it is hard to see how a fair-minded reader could end up agreeing with Glantz. Here are the two main arguments against e-cigarettes:

E-Cig "Victory"? – For Who???

E-Cig "Victory"? – For Who??? | E-Cigarettes | Scoop.it

There is a sentiment being expressed via social media that the “compromise agreement” reached at the end of the EU’s TPD Trialogue process could be hailed as some sort of victory. But for who? It certainly isn’t for vapers.

 

The premise for this claim is that what we have isn’t quite as bad as it could have been, which saddens me as I genuinely thought that some of the people claiming this “victory” really understood what was at stake for vapers. I was clearly wrong.

 

Let’s take a look at some of the “highlights” of the proposals as they stand, now agreed and seemingly supported by everybody involved in trialogue except the ECR group and the truly wonderful Frederique Ries – who still refuses to accept this “compromise”. Sadly, some of her ALDE colleagues seem less inclined to fight and look destined to capitulate and vote with the compromise. The fact that they seem to be claiming credit for the appalling, shameful outcome is frankly baffling to those of us who placed our faith in them.

E-Cig Regulation: Thoughts from Vapers and Experts

E-Cig Regulation: Thoughts from Vapers and Experts | E-Cigarettes | Scoop.it

With the FDA on the cusp of announcing deeming regulations for e-cigs, many vapers, researchers and advocates have been pondering the question of how best to regulate e-cigs of late. Even amongst the community, the question is divisive; it’s a problem which pits idealism against realism. Most readily agree that things are fine as they are (given that the alternative is equivalent in terms of risk to playing Russian roulette with three bullets in the chamber), but it’s unrealistic to pretend that this will continue.

 

So, what should regulation be like? Should we be as worried about children and non-smokers taking up vaping as much as ideological anti-smoking groups, prohibitionist politicians and sensationalistmedia outlets allege? Are marketing restrictions justified? Should e-cigs really be considered as tobacco products in the eyes of the Federal Government? We put these – and other – questions to ordinary vapers, bloggers and reviewers, scientists and researchers, and prominent advocates to get a picture of where the community falls on the issues.
