The researchers told the BMJ: "The scarce evidence indicates the existence of various toxic and carcinogenic compounds in e-cigarettes, albeit in possibly much smaller concentrations than in traditional cigarettes."
The FDA also detected traces of powerful cancer-causing chemicals.
note difference ; chemicals vs compounds
My concern , is children , their issues . A matter is for us to determine whether these products are not be either recommended , or , disallowed . The question , would one of these e-cigs be picked up or passed on and used by non-smokers , primarily children ? The answer is yes to that .
Therefore I wouldnt recommend recommending them , except to smokers wishing give up tobaccco , as they clearly do gain sucess or temporary sucess regarding this 'health-device' status/function .
The main danger remains nicotine , while it is normal ands someways necessary to ingest the variety of chemical formulations commonly found in smoke for combustion of organics.
E-cigarettes are possibly more addictive and nicotine-habit forming than the original methods of ingestion. With children there is a danger of proliferation of nicotine/smoking related habits , occuring potentially unguided by state or families

I tried. The hit off an e-cig is harsher than a regular smoke. And, I can't enough nicotine out of it. Even if I had a 24 mg. of nicotine, once you exhale you lose half of it, and 12 mg.s is just not enough for me.
E-cigs are probably great for light smokers.

I was down the pub the other night, drinking and vaping while the other smokers had to go out.
Though I did find myself going with them now and again, just cos the non smokers are a bit dull.

Hey darrman, I do realize you are busy but please go back and answer the message I sent you about a month ago. It was in reference to your thread on backflow assembly testing. Just needed some answers. Sorry for hijacking this thread.

Chaps, First of all I am a reformed smoker. I'm not going to bleat to you guy's about what to do and what not to do, but may I suggest a book (Yes a book).
Allen Carr's - Easy way to stop smoking.
Now, I know what you are thinking "yeah right, sure". BUT THIS REALLY WORKS.
I smoked from the age of 15 up until I was 35, I liked smoking, smoking was an enjoyable thing for me. Yes you could say I was addicted (don't believe that now) but I really enjoyed a smoke.
I tried everything to give up and nearly every aid. I wanted to stop.
A friend of mine handed me this book, by the end of this book I had stopped smoking.
No BS, I really did and haven't smoked for 3 years since. I just told myself "I don't smoke" not, "I have given up smoking" I just kept saying to myself every time I wanted a smoke or got the twinge that "huh! I don't smoke, why would I want a cigarette".
It really works and it's way cheaper than all the other crap you are going to buy..........so if you are serious about giving up............give it a go.............best thing ever.
I don't stink
I'm way healthier
Way more energy
I feel bloody fantastic!
I also feel completely stupid for all the years I spent smoking.
