France to ban electronic cigarettes in public amid health risk uncertainty

777 eCigs Line Now Offers Zero mg Nicotine-Free Disposable Electronic Cigarettes

Reuters is reporting France plans to expand its 2007 ban on smoking in public places to include electronic cigarettes as well, amid concerns over the public health impact of the smokeless alternative. “I have decided that the measures which apply to tobacco will also be extended to electronic cigarettes,” France’s Health Minister Marisol Touraine said at a press conference today, according to Agence France-Presse . The press conference was to mark World No Tobacco Day, an international effort to raise awareness for smoking’s dangers. An estimated 6 million people are killed by tobacco each year, according to the World news Health Organization , while about 600,000 people die annually from exposure to secondhand smoke. Electronic cigarettes have gained popularity in recent years. A February 2013 study of American smokers found about 21 percent of U.S.

Graduate student awarded NIH fellowship to study electronic cigarettes

“I will be studying aerosols produced by electronic cigarettes, specifically using refill fluids,” said Rachel Behar, the recipient of the NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award . “I will isolate chemicals in the most cytotoxic aerosols and test them on human embryonic stem cells to mimic exposure during early stages of development.” Specifically, Behar, who is currently a third-year student in the Cell Molecular and Development Biology graduate program, will collect a variety of refill fluids representing different flavoring agents such as sweet, fruity, and even savory. She will then heat these fluids to generate aerosols that can be applied to different cell cultures to test their cytotoxic effects. “A lot of people are switching to e-cigarettes as smoking cessation devices, ” said Prue Talbot , the director of the UCR Stem Cell Center and Behar’s advisor.

Health officials worry about electronic cigarette push in Colorado

Lorillards other full-price brands, Kent and True, saw volumes decline 13 percent and 12 percent, respectively. Volumes of value-priced Old Gold and Maverick fell 9 percent and 4 percent, respectively. As part of the industry wide push to diversify beyond the traditional cigarette business, Lorillard acquired e-cigarette maker Blu Ecigs in April 2012. Electronic cigarettes are battery-powered devices that heat a liquid nicotine solution, creating vapor that users inhale. Some e-cigarettes are made to look like a real cigarette with a tiny light on the tip that glows like the real thing.

One website discussion in Colorado asks if people can “vape” in casinos in the mountain gambling town of Blackhawk and advertises meet-ups where fellow “vapors” can connect. Since e-cigarettes are not a tobacco product, companies can get around 42-year old laws that ban cigarette advertising. The largest concentration of e-cigarette ads are online. But, with big companies like RJ Reynolds entering the marketplace, some predict advertising on TV, radio and billboards is not far behind. “By around August we should start seeing significant TV advertising, as well as online,” said Colorado-based marketing executive Brent Green.

Do we recommend this for non-smokers? Of course not, but for current smokers this is the most revolutionary device to date” – Dr. Travis Stork from “The Doctors” We also learned that the electronic cigarette is not encompassed by most smoking bans and regulations. With the lack of second-hand smoke, smokers are excited to find that many businesses, bars, and even air planes allow them to smoke e-cigarettes indoors.

Electronic Cigarettes — Let’s Think Before We Inhale

Fact: A growing body of evidence suggests that early use of http://higginsmvtw.wordpressy.pl/?p=13 nicotine increases the risk of addiction involving not only nicotine but also other drugs. High school students who have ever smoked cigarettes are nine times likelier to develop addiction involving alcohol or other drugs than those who have never smoked. Fact: More than 20 percent of those with addiction involving nicotine also have addiction involving one or more other drugs and another 59 percent of users of nicotine laced tobacco products are risky users of other addictive drugs. These facts suggest that e-cigarettes may well serve as training wheels for other drug use and addiction and most states do not restrict the purchase of these products by children. Are we okay with our 8- year-olds being able to buy e-cigarettes? From Big Tobacco’s sales and marketing perspective, these unregulated products will be a gold mine.

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

For example, he rejected pleas from the states auto insurers to veto a bill telling them when they can and cannot declare a damaged vehicle a total loss, that was a priority of the states politically connected auto-body shop industry. (Leading the industrys fight again this year was the sister/law partner of the former senior deputy majority leader in the House.) Sponsored by Rep. Arthur Corvese, D-North Providence, the new law prohibits an insurer from declaring a motor vehicle a total loss if the cost to restore the vehicle is less than 75 percent of its fair market value before it was damaged. The only exception would be if the owner gives the OK to say the vehicle is totaled. LOW-INCOME HOUSING: But Chafee vetoed a bill, sponsored by Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt, D-Woonsocket, and Sen.

Are e-cigarettes healthier?

Electronic cigarettes: No smoking, but lots of fuming

Can electronic cigarettes help smokers kick the traditional habit?

E-cigarettes is a $500 million industry, a minute share of the annual $80 billion U.S. tobacco market. The e-cigarette market has grown globally by 30 percent in the past three consecutive years. Marion County resident Jan Spagnol, an opiate user who has been clean for one year, said during her recovery, she has relied heavily on cigarettes.

Personal vaporizers, and the “juice,” which is liquid laced with nicotine, in them, are so different from one another that the emissions of one may not match those of another. In 2009, the FDA released results of a study on two kinds of e-cigarettes, reporting the presence of small levels of several toxins in the cartridges. For example, one sample contained 1% diethylene glycol, a component of antifreeze. But thus far, no studies have shown that large amounts of dangerous chemicals are released into the air, says Dr.

Electronic cigarettes: No smoking, but lots of fuming

Electronic Cigarette Users Unite to Send a Powerful Message to MEPs

Smokers have been banished from most public places, forced to nurse their addiction in private or outdoors. But what about vapers, the name for people who draw on electronic cigarettes that spew no actual smoke? Instead, they inhale and then exhale e-juice as a vapor containing liquid nicotine, flavored with such tastes as fresh tobacco and cotton candy. Should they be subject to the same restrictions? FOR THE RECORD: E-cigarettes: An article in the July 6 Saturday section about the debate over the use of electronic cigarettes omitted the first name of John “JJ” Jenkins, owner of the Vapor Spot in Westwood.

FDA faces important decisions on regulation of e-cigarettes

FDA faces important decisions on regulation of e-cigarettes

Furthermore, the FDA must decide how marketing should be regulated in the context of potential benefits and population risks. “This includes deciding the legal age at which minors can purchase the products and other possible access restrictions, as well as evaluating the appeal of the marketing to youth,” the authors wrote. Currently, there are more than 250 e-cigarette brands, each of which uses different liquid nicotine solutions, additives and flavorings.

Can electronic cigarettes help smokers kick the traditional habit?

Writing to Matthias Groote MEP, the e-cigarette users state that they are genuinely concerned that proposals to regulate e-cigarettes as a medicinal product and to ban flavourings will effectively constitute a ban on a product they use as an alternative to deadly tobacco cigarettes, an opinion supported by the European Parliament’s own Legal Affairs committee. David Dorn an e-cigarette user from the United Kingdom said, “E-cigarettes are not a medicinal product and as users we do not see ourselves as ill or in treatment; we are not. Users do however enjoy the benefits of using nicotine, and nicotine when not combined with cigarette smoke is relatively harmless. I hope that MEPs will vote this week to either remove e-cigarettes completely from the Tobacco Products Directive or that they will ask the Commission to go away and do a lot more research, fund some unbiased studies and come back in two or three years and report on the situation at that time. Policy makers will then have a lot more information at their fingertips to make a decision that is not going to result in 700,000 lives per year being terminated early because MEPs voted to effectively ban e-cigs as they currently are from the market in Europe.” The key health benefit of e-cigarettes is determined by how many smokers switch to them or use them as a staging post to quitting completely.
