    E-Cigarettes : Welcome Back, Big Tobacco - the fifth estate


    Published on 21 Oct 2016
    Big Tobacco is trying clean up its image, moving into the booming e-cigarette business which continuing to peddle the deadly tobacco products. This has left public health officials in Canada, the U.K. and the US

    Five million Canadians still smoke. Could e-cigarettes help wean them over to a safer nicotine delivery device? Many ex-smokers say 'yes.' E-cigarettes are their salvation.

    Health Canada is on the cusp of deciding how e-cigarettes should be regulated. Mark Kelly heads to England -- a country that has taken bold steps in embracing the e-cigarette as a safer alternative. Will Canada? And what will this mean for our e-cigarette industry?

    Until now, e-cigarettes with nicotine have not been endorsed by Health Canada. And that's kept Big Tobacco out of the Canadian market. Will new regulations open the doors for a tarred industry to join in the e-cigarette revolution?





    Alot of focus it seems on big tobbacco this month while pharma quietly and conveniantly gets left out of the discussion - personally I couldnt care less if Big tobacco has a share of the market as long as they are not allowed to monopolise it at the expense of small vendors/ juicemakers/ mod makers and healthy competition..

    Formaldehyde in Electronic Cigarettes vs Combustible Tobacco (approx 20mins)


    Today's video is an easy to conduct experiment to detect formaldehyde in electronic cigarettes and combustible tobacco so you can compare the levels and results. The equipment is easy to get a hold of and we go over where you can buy the equipment if you would like to conduct this yourself. This is for adults 18 to 21 years of age due to tobacco laws so please do not do this if you are under 18.

    Interesting more than anything in the UK

    Christopher Snowden just posted this brief thing on a loaded pharma survey he got pushing people to ask for taxes on smoking in the UK (presumably to boost sales of alternate prducts like pills, potions, hypnotism, meditation, possibly vaping too?)
    Velvet Glove, Iron Fist: Pharma's leading questions

    But it got me wondering and looking at google where I found this artcle and others like it

    Meanwhile it seems that LIQuid LiQuid E Liquid - Incredibly Awesome UK Made Cheap 10ml E-LiQuid - For £1 has been bought by Thornton and Ross a small Pharma subsiduary of the huge STADA group (BP)

    Studies have been caught out this year as being made by pharma to favour pharma (from September)

    And UK people who vape seem none too happy about a potential and surruptitous take over of vaping over there by pharma

    Was reading this article in Gizmodo this morning
    Sorry, No One Likes Vaping

    Sorry, No One Likes Vaping

    A kinda lame not researched article that tries to put everything on big tobacco and so called big vaping without looking at Big pharmas tenticles (surpise?)

    More interesting than the article were the comments both for and against vaping - If you are bored enough they are worth a wander through - esp if you want to understand some of the debate better

    Comment section also lead me to this by the cancer council australia on the fagerstrom test for tobacco dependance 6.5 Measures of tobacco dependence - Tobacco In Australia which you will find rightfully horribly outdated and defunct when it comes to vaping -

    however the update on the page (from October) on the latest update on the test lead me to this article

    https://www.theguardian.com/science/...and-depression

    So between the original gizmodo article, the fagerstrom test, the update the cancer council posted and comments on the original Gizmodo article - I am left shaking my head wondering WTF?
