    Major Downfall for E-cigarettes as Scientists discover Danger to Window Lickers

    Scientists have revealed that up to 1 milligram of nicotine can be ingested if a person licks 5 sq metres of glass that has been exposed to e-cigarette vapour.

    If you're like me and have taken up this fantastic fad of licking your windows and walls in your home, then this latest scientific report will shock you. What's worse is that if you kiss your wife or children after you have licked your walls, you could potentially expose your loved ones to micrograms of nicotine.

    Public Health advocates have called for a complete ban on all nicotine electronic cigarettes after this frightening revelation. Professor James Tungtowall from the University of Watdafark Victoria, said that "this only confirms what we have suspected all along. Non-smokers should take extreme caution before licking the walls and windows when visiting the homes of e-cigarette users, and those who use e-cigarettes in their home should inform visitors about their e-cigarette use before letting their guests lick their walls and windows".

    I heart this so much. It's either the best written trolling science article or a complete utter waste of resources.
    Is there a study which demonstrates how much residual ammonia can be ingested from licking 5 freshly scrubbed bathtubs?
    Health alert.

    Interesting article.

    I have got to call into question the final figures as they do not take into account the nicotine that would be absorbed by the person that would using the PV.

    Anyway back to the old chestnut of nicotine naturally available in the human food chain. As this article points out nicotine is readily metabolized by the human body and is really of no consequence in the real world.

    MMS: Error





    I am presently downloading the nicotine MSDS and it will be available to interested visitors to my house. This will allow them to make an informed decision whether to enter the premises and consume food containing nicotine. Children will be actively discouraged from licking the windows, walls and floors, and if adults partake in this behavior, they deserve everything bad that happens to them. Consuming residual Nicotine in this manner the least of their issues!!

    If you vape exclusively in the bathroom, and then steam up the room by running the shower for say.. half an hour, could you then collect the vapour as steam from the mirror in the bathroom and drink it as an alternative to vaping?? I don't like the idea of licking windows.. who knows what else could be on there.. windex is probably more toxic than eliquid containing nicotine. Would I need 5 square metres of mirrors in my bathroom to achieve a decent nicotine hit? I suppose I could put the mirrors on the ceiling?
