Popular E Cigarettes To be Regulated By FDA
As e cigarettes become more and more popular, naturally more attention is being paid to their safety and any potential risks they may have. Although many studies have been completed which show them to be safe to use, there may be room for some regulated warnings to come with them to ensure people use them safely.
In recent news it has been publicised that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) are considering placing warning labels on eliquid containing liquid nicotine. They are also considering placing a requirement on the packaging of eliquid to ensure that it is child-resistant.
Helen Flanagan Vows To Stay Of Cigarettes
After smoking for years, former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has now vowed to stay off cigs for good after having her beautiful baby daughter recently. According to The Mirror, Helen decided to kick the habit as soon as she found out she was pregnant with baby Matilda. The gorgeous 24 year old not only decided to quit for the sake of her new baby, but because she plans to expand her brood with partner Scott in the near future.
Recently, a news story was published suggesting that e cigarettes where a gateway to smoking for adults and more worryingly, under 18′s. However, new evidence has been released that dismisses the gateway theory, further emphasising what many from the eliquid community have already said – vaping does not necessarily lead to smoking.
The research, provided by Cancer Research in a recent news story shows that smoking e cigarettes does not guarantee a user will begin smoking normal cigarettes regularly. Professor Linda Bauld of Stirling University Stated:
Danger To Pets Spike With Increase In Electronic Cigarette Popularity
E Cigarettes are becoming more and more popular, which means the potential danger for pets will naturally rise as more people have products containing liquid nicotine in their homes.
News reports show that in cases involving animals being exposed to nicotine have risen from over 200 animals in 2011, to over 300 animals in 2013. So although vaping is considered to be safe for you, the associated paraphernalia may pose a significant risk to your pets as nicotine is an incredible dangerous poison.
Naval Medical Officers Declare Vaping Is Not A Risk
Recently a fugitive whistleblower claimed unauthorised vaping was a safety risk on board Royal Navy nuclear submarines, leading the naval medical officers having to perform a full health and safety investigation to determine whether or not this is the case. This has led to some unexpected positive press for the e cigarette community, as the naval medical officers have now declared vaping is not a risk and sailors are free to vape on board.
Another Blow For Vapers
In another blow to the e cigarette community, a recent story by the London Evening Standard details Southern Rail’s plan to ban e cigarettes from the last week in July. Many different companies and retailers have chosen to ban the use of e cigarettes, however, this is the first time a major company used by so many people has publically stated it intends to ban the use of these devices.
Smoking is now recognised and accepted as being incredibly unhealthy. There was once a time when smoking was glamorized in adverts, and you were able to smoke inside public places, and even on planes. However, a lot is now known about how dangerous this habit is, so it’s no surprise one of the worlds biggest killers is now banned in so many places, in so many different countries. The UK has some of the strictest laws on smoking in the world, but how do other countries compare?
Scotland has recently put forward an e cigarettes bill which will mean the sale of e cigarettes and their associated products will be banned for those under the age of 18.
Despite various research studies and statistics showing that e cigarettes are safe to use and are not a gateway to smoking normal cigarettes, anti-tobacco campaigners have still welcomed the bill. Ash (Action on Smoking and Health) Scotland stated that they believe “electronic cigarettes are less damaging to health than traditional cigarettes” (http://www.scotsman.com/news/scotland/top-stories/e-cigarette-bill-welcomed-by-campaigners-1-3793929)
E cigarettes are getting extremely popular, and according to a survey carried out by ASH (Action Against Smoking) they helped half a million people in the UK quit smoking last year (BBC News).
In the article by BBC News, it stated that the ASH research had shown that in the UK “there are now 2.6 million UK vapers, up from 2.1 million in 2014.”.
Are you finding you’re vaping and putting out less steam than a cold cup of tea? There are lots of reasons this can happen, ranging from the vaping techniques you use to issues with the E cigarette itself.
If you are experiencing this problem, the first thing you need to do is figure out what’s actually going wrong. You can’t fix an issue if you don’t know what’s causing the issue right?
