    Slimming e-cigs - what next?

    I wonder what they put in these?

    NutriCigs to hit the UK Fashion Industry | PR Fire

    Looks like more ammunition for the nay-Sayers to use.

    Not according to them, there are additional ingredients added to each of the 3 types. Caffeine for the energy, appetite suppressants for the slimming, and hopefully not Rohypnol in the sleepy time ones.

    Comes complete with a clear dose of racism as well.

    I think if they make nutritional or health benefits claims here the TGA will be all over it like flies on a turd.

    I would not be surprised if this product flies, though.
    I know someone in the industry who recently did quite well in a local modelling contest, where one of the placegetters got a 3 year contract with some fashion label. One of the conditions was that if the model so much as gained a centimetre on any part of their body, the contract would be terminated.
    A very sad world to be living and moving in, I would have thought. I'm still shaking my head.

    If high paid models are willing to invest in this and created a profitable demand, then Big Pharma would be more than happy to pay for medical approval of enhanced e-cigarettes. Generally speaking, what's not allowed in the TPD, is allowed if you're willing to pay for medical approval. That's why Big Tobacco companies are loving the TPD. It cuts out 95% of their competitors.

    ďBut I donít want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you canít help that," said the Cat: "weíre all mad here. Iím mad. Youíre mad."
    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē
