It seems that more and more people are waking up and asking questions pertaining to the actual safety of e-cigarette devices.
In a recent article in the New York times, the writer states:
“…the devices, like smokeless tobacco, reduce the incentive for people to quit nicotine and could also be a ‘gateway’ for young people and nonsmokers to become nicotine addicts.”
Those are two excellent points and we have discussed them already here on this site. The article also mentions and FDA warning which in summation says that “several chemicals in the vapor of e-cigarettes may be ‘harmful’ and ‘toxic.’ ”
We have received a lot of criticism recently via comments on our articles from people trying to dismiss us or even accuse us of being somehow associated with big tobacco companies. Have we ever encouraged the use of traditional tobacco? Certainly not.
We are not an authority like the Food & Drug Administration. We are simply a website that aims to get the whole story about e-cigarettes, not just the story propagated by their vendors. Despite the apparent desire by many to silence us, we will carry on. Especially now that respected new outlets such as the New York Times are exploring the facts of e-cigarettes and their potential hazards.
