They’re desperate, aren’t they?

Long-term e-cigarette use could lead to chronic lung conditions, scientists have warned.

US researchers found e-cigarette vapour affects cells in the lungs in the same way as cigarettes smoke, even after just one hour.

Long-term exposure could lead to emphysema, which is also known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD.

Although these were preliminary results, experts have hailed the results as significant.

  1. Although these were preliminary results, experts have hailed the results as significant.

    Significant as in, “thank fuck – that ‘scientific’ fig leaf we were looking for! To the punitivetaxandorbansturbation wagon!”

  2. Well, e-cigarettes are spoiling many decades of work villainizing smokers, they are screwed if they need to introduce subtlety into the argument.

    Nothing like an open mind is there?

    David Moore – “they are screwed if they need to introduce subtlety into the argument.”

    They would be screwed anyway^H^H^H Oh wait, that is not what you meant. Never mind.

  4. Like all fanatics, their world is binary: give up smoking completely or die. They are happy with either outcome. Anything which allows the evil smoker to continue to enjoy nicotine and not die is their nightmare scenario.

    Plus, of course, they are funded by pharma companies whose useless nicotine patches look about as effective as leeches in comparison.

  5. Rob, the leeches are the anti-smoking lobby that have attached themselves to the govt. and big pharmacy.

  6. I bet it’ll be like the other study which also said ecigs were harmful. The other study cheated by turning up the power on the vaporiser above the level normally used by vapers to get the results they wanted. This one seems to be doing the cheating by looking at cells in isolation and probably using concentrations in excess of what would normally occur in a vaper.

    I have noticed that the DM pushes the anti ecig line a lot even though the comments are always against the DM’s line, ie. pro vaping. Either they are going for the click bait or they are following a line from their advertisers.

    Very significant! They can apply for more GRANT MONEY!

  8. I want a study done on the cancer risks of patchouli scented candles & incense sticks. it must be harmful. I hate the stuff. Keeps making me want to play Judy Collins albums
    Gimme Gimme Gimme

    Well why not? Everyone else gets ’em.

  9. BNIS, I would add air fresheners to your list. All those VOCs coming off them.

  10. “All those VOCs coming off them.”

    And trees. The Number 1 producer of environmental VOC pollution. It should be studied – why won’t someone think of the children???

  11. Air fresheners, SMBL? Don’t get me started on air fresheners. I detest fresh air. Why god created tobacco.
