    E-cigarettes under fire by critics, Team 10 tests the vapor

    Glantz is at it again ..

    Stanton Glantz, professor of medicine at the University of California, said he supports the bill becoming law. Glantz told Team 10 the state should mandate that people cannot use an e-cigarette where traditional cigarettes are banned.

    Glantz gave an overview on how e-cigarettes work.

    "The way an e-cigarette works is it heats up a mixture of nicotine, propylene glycol and other chemicals and that heated mixture becomes an aerosol which is inhaled deeply into your lungs to deliver the addictive drug nicotine," she said.

    The professor and other critics believe e-cigarettes do not help people quit smoking because users reportedly use e-cigarettes and cigarettes at the same time.

    "Most of the people, about 80 percent of people who use e-cigarettes, keep smoking regular cigarettes," said Glantz.

    But interestingly, discussion about it on Twitter has revealed that the ANTZ are already looking into the dangers of third hand vape.

    And a reply from ECF ...

    UPDATE, 11 PM ON 30 JANUARY, 2014: The results are in. In one of the e-cigs tested, Talbot’s lab found “small amounts” (no actual concentrations are mentioned, which is typical of press commentary on vaping dangers) of copper, calcium, and potassium. Let’s look at the dangers these chemicals pose.

    “Copper is an essential mineral required by the body for bone and connective tissue production, and for coding specific enzymes that range in function from eliminating free radicals to producing melanin.” (Source: healthaliciousness.com)

    “Calcium is essential for strong bones and teeth. Calcium deficiency can lead to disorders like osteoporosis (brittle bones). Good sources of calcium include dairy foods and calcium-fortified products, such as soymilk and breakfast cereals.” And apparently e-cigs, according to Talbot. (Source: an Australian health agency)

    Potassium. “Studies suggest boosting your potassium intake and curbing salt and sodium can slash your stroke risk by 21% and may also lower your odds of developing heart disease. Potassium, a mineral, works by protecting blood vessels from oxidative damage and keeps vessel walls from thickening. Adults should aim to get 4,700 mg of potassium a day.” (Source: health.com)

    Glantz gets slaughtered in the comments, which is heartening to see I think people are starting to wake up.

    By studying history, you tend to find there were few of this kinds in every century.

    For now, CVS has elected to wait and see, spokesman Michael DeAngelis wrote in an email: ”We wouldn’t speculate on how the FDA will decide about this product. We will evaluate once their decision is made.”
    Gotta fill those shelves up with something.

    Now that is big news. Massive news - Looks like big pharma might make a move soon (Or they'll just source from tobacco companies not to piss them off...)
