Electronic Cigarette Company Launches New Website

“These items are a great alternative to traditional tobacco products and can also help users finally kick their habit,” he added. Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) look similar to traditional cigarettes, but function differently. Nicotine is heated inside an electronic device that creates a smokeless vapor, which is then inhaled by the user. The nicotine-infused vapor is often flavored and free from the harmful tar, carbon monoxide and chemicals found in traditional cigarettes. For many, e-cigarettes provide a way for users to slowly taper down their tobacco use.

The mechanism of action is a battery-powered device that heats a nicotine solution, creating an inhalable vapor without burning tobacco products or other toxins usually found in cigarettes.

Its estimated around 1.3 million people use them in the UK with the market expected to reach 250m per year in 2014.

Electronic cigarette firm joins fight against EU proposals

E-cigarettes face new restrictions

Even though the use of electronic cigarettes has grown exponentially over the last few years, the Sudbury and District Health Unit advises people against using them. Francine Brunet-Fechner, a public health nurse with the health unit, said not enough is known about the effect the devices might have on the body. At this point in time, presently, if a client came to us in the clinic, it is not something that we would encourage them to use, she said. We would support that they use the known, safe products like nicotine replacement therapies and the supportive counselling to help them in their progress. Electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes, are cylindrical devices made out of stainless steel or plastic that mimic real cigarettes in terms of its appearance and use.

R.I. Governor Chafee vetoes e-cigarette ban for those under 18

City staff fear Temple City will become inundated with store fronts promoting the “vape” fad. Since January, entrepreneurs who want to open these shops have submitted at least one inquiry a week, said Mark Persico, Temple City’s community development director.

But national, state and local agencies and Richard Godfrey, executive director of Rhode Island Housing urged Chafee to veto the bill, saying it would scare off investors and jeopardize current and future affordable housing projects. Approved on an unusually close 27-to-25 House vote, the bill was also the subject of a heated debate the final night of the session between Rep. Jeremiah OGrady, who is a real estate project manager for the Olneyville Housing Corporation and Baldelli-Hunt. Since rents cant be raised on the low income residents, OGrady, D-Lincoln, said the tax hike would jeopardize the survival of affordable housing units across the state, that were built on break even financing-assumptions. Baldelli-Hunts retort: With all due respect I feel if theres anyone who should be recusing themselves from this vote, it should be you. In his veto message, Chafee said the legislation threatens the low-income housing market, made up of 20,000 units and hundreds of apartment complexes across Rhode Island.

They can help people break their addiction in a way conventional nicotine replacement therapies will never do. They could save millions of lives. Mr Davies visited Blackburn e-cigarette manufacturer and retailer Totally Wicked last month. North West MEP Jacqueline Foster visited the firm yesterday, and said thousands of ex-smokers could find themselves back on the habit if the latest proposals from the European Commission are approved at a full European Council vote in September. Totally Wicked director Fraser Cropper said: Medicines regulation creates a default prohibition and requirement for approval, leaving deadly tobacco cigarettes as the only easily-marketed source of nicotine. At Blackburn with Darwen Council executive board, Youth MP Harry Bithell voiced concern about the use of e-cigarettes among youngsters. He said: Some young people are smoking these and then going on to normal cigarettes.

She was charging a VapCigs e-cigarette when her husband thought he smelled nail polish remover. “I looked around and I saw the battery to the (e-cigarette) dripping,” Ries said. “I went to unscrew it and the battery started shooting fire toward me and then exploded and shot the metal pieces onto my lap.” Her cotton dress caught fire said Ries, “I got severe second-degree burns on both the back of my upper thighs and my lower buttocks.” She described the battery’s malfunction as “a blowtorch type of fire and then an explosion.” Her quick-thinking husband pulled the car over into the emergency lane and threw a cup of coffee on her to put the fire out. Ries said she’s still visiting doctors at UC Irvine Health Regional Burn Center. Gregory Bentley is representing the Ries’ in a lawsuit against Benham Zolgdahr, the retailer, and Corona-based VapCigs.

Electronic cigarettes could rekindle battles over smoking in public

But while health experts largely agree that the vapor from e-cigarettes poses less of a threat to public health than tobacco cigarettes, some worry that welcoming the so-called clean nicotine could erode smoking bans, encourage smokers to trade one addiction for another and hook nonsmokers. Shifting entirely over to vaping from smoking would be a big public health plus, said Robert Proctor, a history of science professor at Stanford University. But the question of whether e-cigarettes are good or bad isnt that simple. Supplanting cigarettes?
