Really?! Now that's interesting! It's gotta be better than some other stimulants and chemical cocktails used as weight loss solutions. Cool. Thanks
I did try to answer your post BanTv, explaining that nicotine in cigarettes or in ecigs is not the harmful element, but the the other chemicals added
to tobacco are.
I did go on to try and clarify and quatify that statement, by showing that nicotine being prescribed as an appetite suppressant to fat or obese kids
(and adults) is considered much safer that current 'slimming' aid drugs and pharmas that ARE currently prescribed by a doctor...namely amphetamines
and amphetamine based pharma drugs...but, an overzealous mod must have decided the mention of ligitamate and properly prescribed drugs, by thousands
of doctors no less...is somehow an off topic post and removed it.
But the truth is the truth, regardless of how mods here decide to react to it.
Pharma drugs, considered fairly dangerous street drugs have been prescribed for decades as 'slimming pills', given to both children and adults
alike...i can't help that, i don't agree or endorse the practice of given hard drugs to people to help them lose weight.
The point is, in relation to ecigs and / or cigarettes, that Nicotine is considered safer to prescribe and has the same result as the hard
stuff...reduces appetite and has a calming effect.
It IS addictive though, so i would not recommend anyone use cigarettes or ecigs that deliver nicotine. With ecigs we have the choice to vape nicotine
laced eliquid, for ex-smokers use, or to have juice with zero nicotine content at all...(yes naysayers, we can have juice with ZERO nicotine in it at
all)...plus, there are even moves to research other chemical delivered by ecigs, like Vitamin C, Male 'enhancers' (yes...that kind) and other
Try asking for a nicotine free cigarette, or one that helps you 'perform', or fight off a cold...and you're gonna be out of luck. An ecig is a
different story altogether.
Hopefully, i've shown that my point, although not as long winded as this one, WAS on topic.
