For example, you don’t have to just stick to a cigarette like device, but you can choose vapor devices of all sizes and shapes. If you want to be novel, go for it, it’s a lot of fun.

Can Vaping Harm Your Eyes?

A question has been floating around the vaping community for the past few months, can vaping, a healthier alternative to smoking, pose any harm to the human eyes? Nigel Best, an optometrist and medical representative of Specsavers, an eye wear company from the UK, made some remarks on the question regarding the eye contact with e-liquid vapors and said “Although e-cigarette research is still in early stages and the long term effects are yet to be established, there are early indications that some types can cause irritation to the eyes in the form of dry eye.” Where dry eye might sound a non-threatening term, it still raises some concerns regarding e-cig usage and eye health. The condition can advance into Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), which is usually observed in elderly people, that can, over time, result in permanent damage to central vision and the affected can lose vision in his both eyes.

Court Ruling: States Vaping is Not Smoking

A research carried out at the Royal College of Physicians suggests that the usage of e-cigarettes should be encouraged, because of its health benefits, among the people who smoke regular combustible cigarettes.

The report has debunked all the various myths that were connected to the e-cig usage and it clearly indicated that vaping does not act like a “gateway” to smoking of combustible tobacco for someone who’s a non-smoker. It also indicated that most of the e-cig users are people who have switched to vaping from smoking. The report also claims that: “Among smokers, e-cigarette use is likely to lead to quit attempts that would not otherwise have happened, and in a proportion of these to successful cessation. In this way, e-cigarettes can act as a gateway from smoking.” The researchers who compiled this report claim [ Continue Reading… ]

Needless to say, we are going to discuss the reports compiled by Australian and Swizz experts. According to the Australian report that was compiled by researchers at Health Risk Policy Unit in Sydney – “little is known about the potential adverse health effects of passive exposure to EC vapor.” Instead of doing something about their cluelessness, they went on, “to summarize and review all studies that have examined potential adverse health effects of passive exposure from inhaling EC vapor.” They came up with a pretty figure of 312 case studies before realizing they would at most need sixteen out of them for analysis.

If you might not know, let me tell you what these trillions of cigarette butts are made of.

How to Vape: Guide For Newbs

Vaping is a rather simple, straight forward process. However, there’s no harm in explaining how e-cigarettes work.   Vaping may be simple, but e-cigarettes are an emerging technology. Questions always come up when one deals with emerging technologies. One of the most frequently asked questions is “how does one vape?” The simplest answer is “the same way you’d smoke a traditional cigarette.”   First, bring the e-cigarette to your mouth. This is perhaps the most important step!   Take a few quick puffs. Don’t inhale!   For the rest of your vaping session, you’ll want to take puffs that last from 1 to 3 seconds.   Fairly easy stuff. Here’s an explanation on how it all works. Every time you take a puff, the battery pack inside your e-cigarette warms the clearomiser. This makes the e-liquid evaporate, and become vapour. The vapour is what you inhale, just like you would cigarette smoke. You get the feeling of inhaling smoke, though it’s actually just water vapor.

The Advantages of a Smoke Free Life

Making the move from cigarettes to electronic cigarettes is a big deal. It means giving up tobacco completely, which is a lifestyle change that many people want to embrace. However, if you go this route, what benefits can you expect?   E-cigs Don’t Smell Badly   Because e-cigarettes do not burn, there is no tobacco smoke associated with their use. As a result, using e-cigs is a fairly odourless experience. This is great news for smokers that routinely worry about cigarette smoke lingering in their homes, on their clothes and even on their skin. In addition, cigarette smoke leads to bad breath as well, a problem that electronic cigarette users do not need to worry about.   E-cigs are different.
