    more teenagers using ecigs more than cigs

    "Researchers were surprised at how many 8th, 10th and 12th graders reported using electronic cigarettes this year, even as regular smoking by teenagers dropped to new lows."

    I don't know, if they were gonna smoke anyway, why not? As a long time smoker I can confirm that I personally feel much better on the vape than I do on the fags. But I guess the typical political stance is that they shouldn't be using anything?

    Stories like that are never good news.

    Reckon they should be happy with it. Those are the years most of us started on the stinkies.
    The fact that they are using a less harmful alternative should be applauded.

    They won't look at it in a positive way.
    Unfortunately it's just another way for them to claim ecigs attract children to smoking.
    Then call it a gateway for tobacco.

    There are no long term studies to say that it is a less harmful alternative.

    Stop listening to the bullshit.

    i dont know why people bother to read these.
    unless its a proper paper then its just fluff.
    journalism in Australia is just billshut cut'n'paste from somewhere else, written at the last minute and usually not sourced to anything official - and this news is data from a survey of all things.
    this holds as much evidence as the top ten tips from Cosmo, and we all know the female orgasm is really a myth (source: my life)

    BILLSHUT !*



    *its bullshit.

    The majority of current studies indicate vaping is far less harmful than tobacco use. They are dissecting it in a way that was never done with tobacco in the early days. Every element, compound, chemical and device is being pulled apart and held up in scientific light for scrutiny.

    Don't be a victim of the other bullshit either.

    this is true, but hindsight is 20/20. We will find out in 10+ years.

    There are no long term studies to indicate that it isn't either.

    Show me a 10 year, hell, even a 5 year study on the effects of vaping on the endocrine system, the nervous system, the skeletal system, the lymphatic system, anything. Even basic blood sugar and testosterone/estrogen levels.

    There is nothing.

    The only doctors officially jumping on board are fringe conspiracy academics or ones from countries that are economically challenged and are riding the gravy train of crowd funding.
