10 Surprising Benefits of Nicotine

Nicotine has a bad reputation, but a largely unfounded one. Some evidence suggests that nicotine alone isn’t that addictive. It is the other chemicals found in tobacco smoke, coupled with the behavioural aspects that make smoking as addictive as it is. (Possibly this is the reason why NRT is so ineffective – some studies find that smokers who use NRT have the same relapse rates as those who did not use NRT: source). Nicotine by itself is actually viewed as the least harmful of all the compounds found in cigaretteRead More

Study shows absence of toxins in e-cig vapor

A new report in the International Journal of Research and Public Health assessed e-cigarette vapor for the presence of toxins and mutagens. Researchers used various well-characterized assays, including one for genotoxicity and mutagenicity (adverse impacts on genes and mutations) known as the Ames test, invented by long-time ACSH friend, Dr. Bruce Ames. The study authors, led by Dr. Manoj Misra (whose 4 co-authors and himself all worked for the research labs of Lorillard Tobacco Co. in Greensboro, NC), also assayed cigarette smoke and smokeless tobacco, as well as nicotine replacementRead More

Health Group Calls to Regulate Electronic Cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes need to be strongly regulated — and quickly — to prevent another generation of young people from becoming addicted to nicotine, according to the American Heart Association’s first policy statement on the products. In its statement, the heart association pointed to studies suggesting that e-cigarettes, which contain nicotine but no tobacco, could serve as a “gateway” drug to addict young people, who may go on to regular cigarettes or smokeless tobacco. The association pointed to flavors in e-cigarettes, such as bubble gum, arguing that these are intended toRead More
Top World Scientists urge WHO not to classify E-Cigarettes as a tobacco product.
A group of 53 leading scientists has warned the World Health Organization not to classify e-cigarettes as tobacco products, arguing that doing so would jeopardize a major opportunity to slash disease and deaths caused by smoking. The UN agency, which is currently assessing its position on the matter, has previously indicated it would favor applying similar restrictions to all nicotine-containing products. In an open letter to WHO Director General Margaret Chan, the scientists from Europe, North America, Asia and Australia argued that low-risk products like e-cigarettes were “part of theRead More

E-cigarettes ‘help smokers to quit’

Smokers who use e-cigarettes to quit are more likely to succeed than those who use willpower alone or buy nicotine replacement therapies, such as patches or gum, a study suggests. The survey of nearly 6,000 smokers found a fifth had quit with the aid of e-cigarettes. That was 60% higher than those who did not use the devices, the study said. The University College London team said they were “cautiously positive” about the role e-cigarettes could play. E-cigarette use has shot up in recent years. Action on Smoking and HealthRead More
The FDA finally released a proposal to regulate electronic cigarettes under its authority to control tobacco products. Most major news outlets are already covering the proposal, but here’s the quick and dirty on what they hope to do. In general, the proposal is not as nasty to the e-cig market as one might have expected. Advertising, flavors, and internet sales are not banned — as some thought possible. I’d like to drill down on two pieces of the proposal however. Disclaimer: This is an opinion. Take it as nothing more.Read More
