    EXCELLENT article Thanks for posting Old Dog

    Lots of good reading. I liked this bit

    3. The proponents of 'denormalisation'
    The World Health Organisation's argument against electronic cigarettes is based on the claim that they 'normalise' smoking. To quote Professor Michael Siegel's response "what the World Health Organization is saying is that electronic cigarette use is unacceptable because it 'looks like' smoking. The WHO is willing to let this ideological obsession outweigh the tremendous potential for public health benefits and the saving of lives that electronic cigarettes offer. In other words, the World Health Organization is telling countries that it is more important to discourage any behaviour that looks like smoking than it is to save the lives of smokers".

    And I liked this bit at the end

    Please support our right to individuality.
    We leave you with the words of John Stuart Mill:
    “Neither one person, nor any number of persons, is warranted in saying to another human creature of ripe years, that he shall not do with his life for his own benefit what he chooses to do with it. He is the person most interested in his own well- being.... The interference of society to overrule his judgment and purposes in what only regards himself, must be grounded on general presumptions; which may be altogether wrong.” (On Liberty, 1859)

    I wish people would stop writing that propylene glycol is in asthma medication. The only place I can find it mentioned in this context is on websites dealing with vaping. Perhaps it's because there are so many references made to this in vaping circles that we've pushed the science into the internet antipodes.. but I honestly haven't found a single thing to support this as a fact. I think it's important that we have our information correct. In 2010, some swedish researchers ran some tests of children's bedrooms and found that children who slept in bedrooms with air heavy in glycols (including propylene glycol) were significantly more likely to develop asthma and allergies. Here's the link to that study if you're interested in this.

    LIked this bit

    In France, after having been stable since 2005, cigarette sales fell by 3% in 2012 and by a further 8% over the first seven months of 2013; thereby saving thousands of lives.
    The most plausible explanation for the drop in tobacco sales is the emergence of the e-cigarette; 22.6% of smokers (3 million) have tried them, according to the analysis of Eurobarometer 2012, a figure that by now is likely to have more than doubled. Today, there are almost 400 specialised shops in France, whereas at the beginning of 2013 there were only 100.
