    hallelujah ?!

    some sense at last, but I am always cautious about quotes and references in articles - the context and wider conversation can be lost when quoting 'soundbites'

    at least something positive

    The voice of reason is being heard above the noise and hysteria of authoritarian fundamentalists; a similar pattern is emerging in Europe and will eventually prevail in Australia.

    I wonder how many rocket scientists it took to figure that one out? Has this been forwarded to the WA Health Dept?

    The article talks about Senator Tom Harkin knowing sweet f*ck all. This is part of the letter from Senator Tom Harkin joined Senators Edward J. Markey , Sherrod Brown, Barbara Boxer, Jeff Merkley, Jack Reed, Richard Blumenthal, and **** Durbin to the commissioner of the FDA

    Dear Commissioner Hamburg:
    We write to bring to your attention two new studies, recently reported in The New York Times, describing the harmful chemicals, including formaldehyde, that are sometimes released in the plume of vapor from certain high powered e-cigarettes.

    it is important that the agency recognize the potential health impacts associated not only with the direct inhalation of liquid nicotine through e-cigarettes, but also the impacts that the emitting “vapor” or “plume” may have both to the user and any secondhand inhalers.

    The lack of rules and regulations has allowed the emergence of new nicotine products, such as e-cigarettes, hookah pens, and liquid nicotine products, also called e-liquids. In the absence of federal oversight, makers of these products have taken advantage of a regulatory black hole by marketing these new nicotine delivery products directly to youth, including through use of bright colors, cartoons, and flavors, including cotton candy and bubble gum.

    While it is true that e-cigarettes do not generally create combustion like traditional cigarettes, the recent New York Times report suggests that the heating of the liquid materials used in e-cigarettes can, under the right circumstances, produce vapors that contain a number of toxins, some of which, like formaldehyde, are produced as a result of other ingredients being heated to high temperatures. Additionally, in an effort to obtain a more potent nicotine high, some sellers and users of e-cigarettes and other advanced nicotine delivery products, manipulate these devices so that the nicotine liquid can be applied directly onto the heating element, a process called “dripping”, which heats the liquid nicotine intensely and rapidly, producing not only a rapid nicotine rush, but also changing the chemical reactions of the ingredients present in these liquid nicotine products. The resulting “emissions” can create levels of carcinogens, such as formaldehyde, that are similar to those present in traditional cigarette smoke.

    As the FDA works to protect the public, especially children, from the health impacts associated with e-cigarettes, we simply cannot afford to lag behind in our complete understanding of the health consequences to the user and bystander of these and other advanced nicotine delivery products. We urge the FDA, as it finalizes its regulations governing e-cigarettes and other advanced nicotine delivery products, to take this new information into consideration and move quickly to develop a regulatory structure to minimize the harm to public health from the rapidly evolving market of nicotine products.


    F*ck me people are stupid!!!
