There has been much debate about the legality of electronic cigarettes and what the future holds for these emerging new devices. Controversy swirls around the tobacco industry, the FDA and the pharmaceutical companies – all noticeably influential in terms of lobbying and government – as electronic cigarettes continue to be beaten down by the powers that be.
But the fact of the matter, and I don’t think anyone can argue this, is that electronic cigarettes are supremely healthier than tobacco. Propylene glycol (the base used in e-Liquid) has been deemed “non-carcinogenic” by the FDA itself. And as we all know by now, nicotine is addictive but not in and of itself carcinogenic. These are the only two ingredients being inhaled/ingested throughout the use of electronic cigarettes. I don’t understand how this irrational behavior can go on, if people are going to use nicotine than let them have the safer option. Disregard your money, disregard your power and have some human decency.

“There is no arguing that the tobacco industry made no (or very little) attempt to inform its consumers and the community at large of the dangers of traditional cigarettes despite available research – until required by law. Let’s make sure this lesson does not fall on deaf ears to all of us in the electronic cigarette industry. While we have great potential in front of us we also have the same potential for error if we focus purely on revenue without morality. We have the opportunity to help millions of people, so we must continue to fund research provide as much information as possible, so the final decision can ultimately be left up to the consumer, rather than decisions made for them through untruths and selective reporting.”
