US Health Officials Warn Against E-Cigarette Use


By Chris Scott Barr

If you’re looking for a way to kick your smoking habit, there’s a a chance that you’ve at least considered e-cigarette solutions. We’ve seen a few around, and always the manufacturer has gone to great lengths to express how much safer they are from a regular tobacco cigarette. Well apparently you might want to think twice before dropping the cash on one.

According to US health officials, these things might be plenty harmful to your health. First, since they still promote the use of nicotine, they probably won’t help anyone kick the habit. In fact, users will be likely to return to cigarettes. That’s not the biggest concern. Apparently when testing samples from e-cigarette manufacturers NJOY and Smoking Everywhere they found samples with diethylene glycol, which is used in antifreeze, as well as several different carcinogens. Long story short, these things aren’t the way to go if you want to quit smoking.

    I know it's hard to believe. “US Health Officials” are in the pocket of big tobacco. So is the American Lung Association BTW.

    It's funny how the FDA does not like E-cigarettes because they do not stop the person from being addicted. Therefore, they are not approved. But REAL cigarettes are approved by the FDA. CANCER CAUSING CIGARETTES ARE APPROVED BY THE FDA. BUT NON CANCER CAUSING E CIGS ARE WORRYSOME BECAUSE YOU ARE STILL ADDICTED TO NICOTINE! No cancer in E cigs. But not taxes either.

    not to mention that the 2 carcinogens they found are also in nicorette and the patch…. and if you put this list of ingredients of traditional tobacco cigarette smoke up next to the ingredients of e-cig vapor.. its astonishing what is in the traditional cigarette compared to vaping…

    Diethylene glycol is also used in pharmaceuticals, cough syrup, toothpaste, and mouthwash. Not to mention that the LD50 of diethylene glycol is 1.4g, when the and entire e-cig cartridge contains at most(I've seen) 24mg of nicotine. I sincerely doubt that they are going to put almost 60x the diethylene glycol as the nicotine.
    Also, I want to know exactly what “several different carcinogens” are in them…Specifics?
