I believe all new houses in the future will come with some sort of solar power installation. It´s such a great way to lowering your electric bill and at the same time be more environmentally friendly. Add a few Tesla home batteries so that you´ll be able to save the energy for future use, and you´ll be all set.

FDA releases proposed e-cigarette regulations

FDA releases proposed e-cigarette regulations | Electronic Cigarette Health | Scoop.it
The Food and Drug Administration is making another attempt at regulating electronic cigarettes and other tobacco products.
Sam J. Macek's insight:

This is pretty good news! Pretty much just going to have to slap a sticker on them, ID minors, disclose ingredients and no free samples. At least not getting banned

Sam J. Macek's insight:

ignorance is about lack of education. This is the perfect example of how people just don't know that vapor from electronic cigarettes can't harm those around you. I understand it can be annoying and some people may have gluten allergies and PG juice has been known to affect those with gluten allergies. However, the amount of vapor to do such a thing would have to be an entire room full of vapor and it's just not going to happen. Here's a post on the effects of PG/VG that might help educate those less educated!


Out of respect to others you shouldn't be vaping in certain places. Ie. I wont do it in restaurants and airports etc. The hassle of being accused of smoking cigarettes etc is just not worth it. I just do it in the bathroom :)

Sam J. Macek's insight:

The UK is so quick to ban electronic cigarettes. I guess I understand that using them in such council buildings is a concern. If everyone in there was vaping, it would be very annoying even if they have no second hand health concerns.

well obviously it's better to avoid everything that's not 100% healthy for you. But you are going to choose your poison than your going to choose the one that's not going to kill you.

Can e-cigarettes help you stop smoking? Find out if e-cigarettes can help you stop smoking in this article from Discovery Health.
Sam J. Macek's insight:

there's a lot of controversy in this article on tobacco. Basically saying smokers should hold off on trying electronic cigarettes until there's more evidence that these devices are safe.. Tell that to the person who's tried every drug, patch and gum and is nearly dead from tobacco. They need to stop now and while e-cigs can't be marketed as quit smoking devices. That's exactly what they are and they have 10x the success rate of any product on the market. End of story. Whether you use it quit smoking and nicotine completely or just to replace it is up to you.

For musician and music teacher Mark McCarthy, 27, e-cigarettes seemed like a good alternative to the real thing.
Sam J. Macek's insight:

Another typical news story saying that electronic cigarettes can be harmful to your health. While this is an ongoing debate, the fact is if you are failing to quit tobacco your risks are minimal with e-cigarettes . Are they completely safe? there's not enough data to make claims. So the best thing to do is make sure you are using a reputable company such as Halo who discloses everything they put inside their products and nothing is imported from China.

The heath problems that Mark McCarthy had and eliminated is more than enough evidence that e-cigs are not contributing to his health problems and in fact reversed his problems.
