Clearing up the Smoke on Electronic Cigarettes

There are a number of false rumors circulating on the internet about electronic cigarettes, so here are some real facts to clear up the smoke!

It appears that some biased newspapers have written falsely accusing articles about the safety of electronic cigarettes based on an FDA report from 2008. Specifically the FDA report stated that TSNA’s (Tobacco Specific Nitrosamines) were present in the electronic cigarettes that were tested. The report however omitted to specify in what quantities or whether those quantities are harmful to humans. Another clinical report, this time performed in New Zealand, showed too that TSNA’s were present in electronic cigarette vapor, but at levels that are thousands of times lower when compared to actual tobacco cigarette smoke. In other words, electronic cigarettes have actually been proven less harmful than tobacco! But here’s the killer: FDA-approved nicotine patches also contain trace levels of TSNA’s but nobody seems to raise any fuss about it! Think what you will.
