"This is the first study to examine the acute effects of electronic cigarette use on myocardial function. No adverse effects on LV [left ventricular] myocardial function were observed after using electronic cigarette with nicotine-containing liquid for 7 minutes. On the contrary, significant changes in diastolic function parameters were found after smoking 1 tobacco cigarette."

This article is amazing and very informative. If you question the safety of vaping then read this!

E-Cigarettes: A $1.5 Billion Industry Braces for FDA Regulation

The first time J. Andries Verleur tried an e-cigarette in 2008, he burned his lip and accidentally inhaled the nicotine fluid. “It was one of the worst products I ever tried,” he recalls, “but the idea was amazing.”

Verleur, a heavy smoker, was living in Prague and happened to spot the strange new product in a…

World’s first Electronic Cigarette Airport ‘Vaping Zone’ at Heathrow
Gamucci has landed at Heathrow T4 The World’s first Electronic Cigarette Airport ‘Vaping Zone’ at Heathrow

Now passengers passing through Heathrow’s Terminal 4 are able to enjoy premium electronic cigarettes in comfort and style in the ‘Gamucci Electronic Cigarette Zone.’ 


The Gamucci Zone is the first airport venue to offer a designated indoor area where passengers can enjoy electronic cigarettes. It can be found in the International Departure Lounge next to luxury brands and duty free stores, with entry restricted only to those aged 18 and over. 

Jack Reynolds, from Stratford-upon-Avon, said: “It’s the first time I’ve used an electronic cigarette. I really liked it and probably prefer it to a normal cigarette.” 

Mamut Patel, from London, said: “It’s well worth a try – it’s the best I’ve tried.” 

Joanne Blin, from London, said: “I think it’s good to have something to cater for everyone. It doesn’t smell and helps to take away stress for smokers. I think it’s great that Gamucci are providing this at Heathrow.” 

The Gamucci Zone opens from 05:00 until 22:30 each day and is the only location airside where passengers can sample and purchase Gamucci electronic cigarettes. Gamucci is the fastest growing electronic cigarette brand in the UK according to Nielsen. 

The move comes at a time when the popularity of electronic cigarettes is growing rapidly worldwide. According to Euromonitor International, global sales are now worth £1.3bn (US$2bn), with the UK and the USA the world’s two largest markets. 

Over 9.8 million passengers pass through Heathrow’s Terminal 4 each year.

NO SMOKE, WHY THE FIRE?

SOME inventions are so simple, you have to wonder why no one has come up with them before. One such is the electronic cigarette. Smoking tobacco is the most dangerous voluntary activity in the world. More than 5m people die every year of the consequences. That is one death in ten. People smoke because they value the pleasure they get from nicotine in tobacco over the long-term certainty that their health will be damaged. So it seems rational to welcome a device that separates the dangerous part of smoking (the tar, carbon monoxide and smoke released by the process of combustion) from the nicotine. And that is what an e-cigarette does. It uses electricity from a small battery to vaporise a nicotine-containing solution, so that the user can breathe it in.

E-cigarettes do not just save the lives of smokers: they bring other benefits too. Unlike cigarettes, they do not damage the health of bystanders. They do not even smell that bad, so there is no public nuisance, let alone hazard, and thus no reason to ban their use in public places. Pubs and restaurants should welcome them with open arms.

Butterfly Bait from Mom and Pop Vapor Shop

I heard many people in the forums rave about Butterfly Bait from Mom and Pop Vapor Shop and how it can be an all-day vape, so I ordered a 30ml bottle because everything I’ve gotten from them is worthy of a large quantity order and generally tank worthy as well.

First impressions: As all of us I couldn’t wait to open my brand new juice purchase and start dripping it into my atomizer. Unfortunately I was slightly disappointed, the flavor seemed muted almost like vaping just vg. So I cranked it up to 5v on a 2 ohm atty and I got some sweetness but no real flavor. So I let it steep (I will go over my steeping method at another time) for 3 days which is usually more than enough for my taste.

After Steeping: I then tried it at 3.7 again, and again almost mute, so I cranked it up to 5v again and now I get all the flavors. I get a very sweet inhale, at 18mg I get somewhat of a TH (probably less than possible with the sweetness), on the exhale I get some unusual berry mix and maybe a hint of honey sweetness.

Vapor: The vapor production is as all mom and pop vapor liquids excellent, at 3.7v it is decent at 5v phenomenal, I did put this in a 3 ohm carto and hit at 6v, which gave me an overpowering sweetness almost “sickie sweet” but also massive plumes of vapor.

Final Impressions: My final opinion is that personally I will not be ordering this again. I do want to say that this is not a horrible vape but taste is subjective and some of us are “flavor snobs”. I also am not going to say don’t order this, if you like strong in your face flavors and massive throat hits (like me) than this is not for you. If you have a sweet tooth and like subtle flavors with a more relaxed throat hit, this could possibly be your all day vape. I tend to stay away from fruity flavors for these reasons, although M&P grape ape and crazy ape (which I will write a review on at a later date) are amazing. But as I stated nothing against M&P (they’re awesome) but Butterfly Bait is a “No GO” for me personally. If you are interested in trying it though and like sweet flavors order a smaller bottle at first because it may be too sweet for you. I also would not recommend going above 5v with this juice just my two cents.

Illinois Governor Patt Quinn recently vetoed a bill (SB 2945) that would have allowed the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) to NOT hire potential employees who LEGALLY use tobacco products including cigarettes, pipes, cigars, chewing tobacco, snus, snuff, clove cigarettes, and electronic cigarettes. I had to read through the bill a few times just to make sure that I got a firm grasp on what was actually being proposed….I thought for sure that I had to be missing something! If not vetoed, this bill would have amounted to legalized discrimination in the hiring process. In this case, against those who choose to use LEGAL tobacco products on their own time, outside of the workplace. Just for the record, I am not a lawyer, and I do not play one on TV. With that said, I cannot imagine a scenario in which this bill would have been able to hold legal muster in the courts. I am not naive. I know that in the “real world” people are turned away from jobs everyday for reasons completely unrelated to their skill level or abilities. Of course they are! Is it right? Probably not. Is it legal? Maybe. But, it happens. This type of legislation seems to take it to a new level. The Illinois legislature passed a bill that gave the CTCA a free pass to openly discriminate against applicants who use LEGAL tobacco products. Even though it seems funny that an applicant to the CTCA would smoke 3 packs a day, it’s their legal choice and right to do so outside of the workplace. The CTCA can argue that the long term health problems associated with smoking and tobacco use could eventually lead to the applicant not being able to perform his/her job at the center, but that would be stretching it…severely! The truth is that an applicants use of tobacco products outside of the workplace has nothing to do with whether or not they can do the job, and it certainly shouldn’t be endorsed by a state legislature as a legal means to disqualify them. I have been unable to find any press release or statement from Gov. Quinn about the veto decision. Below is a link to the bill itself….enjoy! http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/BillStatus.asp?DocNum=2945&GAID=11&DocTypeID=SB&LegId=63824&SessionID=84&GA=97 

Arctic Wolf from Vaporgod.com

I ordered Arctic Wolf which is the only custom blend flavor that they carry. Now, they warn you right away the flavor is intense (no wimps allowed). When you first open the mailer the smell hits you right in the face (your first warning, you can still back out). When you open the bottle it becomes more intense almost strong spearmint (you can actually taste the scent).

After filling my carto and tank(this is your last chance to back out, no one will blame you), I pop on my drip tip and take a pull……….holy cow in your face mint, spearmint, menthol, and icebreakers all rolled into one. The throat hit is predominant and the exhale is almost icy. This is by far the best menthol flavor I have tried to date. I will warn you though, it awakens senses you didn’t know you had some would say it was too much, I tried it at 4.5v, 5v and 5.5v and prefer it at 5v. So in conclusion, I may have found a new favorite menthol, but if you like more subtle flavors this would send you running home to your mommy with your tail tucked. If you you’re like me and like in your face flavors give Arctic Wolf a try.

Flavor: Intense (multi-mint) flavor and an icy exhale

Vapor: The vapor production from this juice is phenomenal at 5v

Throat hit: The throat hit from this juice is strong at any voltage, but perfect for me at 5v

Price: 9.99 for 30ml

Final thoughts: This is an extreme mint, not an all-day vape but definitely a pick me up vape I truly enjoy the vapor production and the throat hit.

In another odd ball story, an e-cig is being blamed for a wildfire in New Mexico that burned more than 350 acres of wooded area along the Rio Grande river. Corrales police told KRQE News 13 the blaze was started by an e-cig dropped in dry brush on June 20th by a village employee. The Corrales fire chief says that village employee and two others were actually patrolling the bosque near Romero Road looking for fire when one of them dropped an electronic cigarette sparking the blaze. The group says they tried to put it out, but it just grew too fast. In my opinion, the likelihood of ANY e-cig being the culprit in this wildfire approaches zero, but I suppose anything is possible. If I was a betting man, which I am not, I would put my money on a real cigarette as the cause, but that is pure speculation at this point. This could very well be a case of the patrol employees involved in the incident covering their own butts (no pun intended). I would assume that any use of combustible materials (analog cigarettes included) is a big no-no for employees working in the area of heightened wildfire alerts. I am assuming that e-cig use was not forbidden before this fire, because the village is now considering a new ordinance that would prohibit electronic cigarettes in the area. At this point, police say no charges will be filed due to the cause being ruled as accidental. The village is handing the case as a personnel matter. As the investigation into the cause of the wildfire goes forward, it will be interesting to see if any new evidence or witness testimony comes to light. Stay tuned!

I thought I had heard it all….at least until this E-Cig related news story hit the international wires this morning. It appears that the Brits are a tad bit on edge when it comes to security matters surrounding the Olympic games being hosted by London later this month. This afternoon (London time), a terror alert prompted by a passenger using an “electric” cigarette led to armed police stopping and evacuating a London-bound bus on the M6. The security alert came after a concerned member of the public contacted police and reported seeing vapour coming out of another traveller’s bag. Armed officers led passengers off the coach and the toll road was closed in both directions for more than four hours. “The information received concerned a report of vapour escaping from a bag which on investigation turned out to be a health improvement aid for smokers,” a force spokeswoman said. No one was injured in the incident, no one was charged with any wrong doing, and the police apologized for any inconvenience the matter might caused the public. There were no reports of what type of “electric” cigarette was involved in the incident. Moral of the story….if you have a PV that has a master on/off feature, use it! On a side note, I am encouraged to see that the police force representative referred to the E-Cig as a “health improvement aid for smokers.” I thought that had a pretty nice ring to it.

Via their website, the FDA is now warning smokers against the use of electronic cigarettes, because the risks of such nicotine delivery systems are not precisely known. The statement reads, “e-Cigarettes may contain ingredients that are known to be toxic to humans, and may contain other ingredients that may not be safe. Additionally, these products may be attractive to young people and may lead kids to try other tobacco products, including conventional cigarettes, which are known to cause disease and lead to premature death.” It continues, “Because clinical studies about the safety and efficacy of these products have not been submitted to FDA, consumers currently have no way of knowing whether e-cigarettes are safe for their intended use, what types or concentrations of potentially harmful chemicals are found in these products, or how much nicotine they are inhaling when they use these products.” I found the Google “Lay Person Translation”, found in the second half of the blog write up, to be very amusing. It was a much needed laugh after trying to digest the FDA’s point of view.

On the heels of Indianapolis, Indiana’s ban on the use of electronic cigarettes in most public places, Fort Wayne, Indiana, is considering similar action. It is a common tendency for smaller US cities, such as Fort Wayne, to follow in the legislative footsteps of nearby larger metropolitan areas like Indianapolis. Below you will find a link to the story and Fort Wayne’s City Council homepage, where you can easily access contact information for each council member. Contact the council and let your opposition be heard! Stop the bans! http://www.indianasnewscenter.com/news/local/Ban-on-Electronic-Cigarettes-148770745.html http://www.cityoffortwayne.org/city-council.html
