Scientists speak on e-cigarettes

There have been a lot of complaints about e-cigarettes lately. Some complain about the vapor burning their eyes, another one said he had to quit because his taste buds were turning black and another one claimed his tongue was swelling up. Of course you will hear complaints because a heavy smoker would be scared of the government making it illegal to smoke tobacco. And the cigarette companies want you to keep smoking regular cigarettes.  And there are busybodies trying to make e-cigarettes illegal.  And governors trying to tax e-cigarettes.

What I can to all of this is "bull". The only thing that can affect the user of e-cigarettes is the propylene glycol. This glycol is responsible for the sensation in the back of the throat that regular cigarettes do when inhaling. Some people are allergic to this but with e-cigarettes you can order some without this glycol. Glycol is approved by the FDA for foods so it can’t be dangerous. 

If you try e-cigarettes and you feel nausea or get headaches it’s the glycol that is doing it. Now here is a site that is surprising about e-cigarettes and who speaks up for the e-cigarette.
Fifty-three scientists have written to the UN's World Health Organization Director General Margaret Chan cautioning her not to classify e-cigarettes as tobacco products, which would then lead to stricter regulatory controls on the nascent industry.

The scientists say that e-cigarettes are "part of the solution" to worldwide tobacco addiction.

"These products could be among the most significant health innovations of the 21st century — perhaps saving hundreds of millions of lives. The urge to control and suppress them as tobacco products should be resisted," they said.
Now if you have any complaints your imagination is just working overtime. Like I have mentioned before, after 66 years of smoking I quit those dirty sickening tobacco cigarettes using e-cigarettes, and I did not get hooked on the e-cigarettes.  I can leave them whenever I want and sometimes I go a week without touching them. When I do it’s because I have nothing else to do.

That is my rant of the day
