Smoke versus Vapor

The Tobacco Industry vs the Electronic Cigarette


Nicotine Products

Nicotine Products

The FDA's double standard and alarmist attitude has had the significant and unfortunate effect of inducing hysteria among the public, discouraging tobacco smokers from using a product which is thought to be a significantly safer alternative to traditional tobacco." First ... lets review the list of additives found in most tobacco products that both the FDA and our Governments approve for consumer use, many of which are carcinogenic in nature ... enjoy the short video, then we can move on to the other Nicotine based products that are already approved and are marketed to the consumer. I have also included four electronic cigarette recipes below.






I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed this or not

Description of the Nicorette Inhaler - FDA APPROVED

The NicoretteŽ Inhaler is a mouthpiece similar to a cigarette in appearance, with a replaceable nicotine cartridge and works as a temporary aid to help you quit smoking. When you puff on the mouthpiece the cartridge releases a controlled amount of nicotine to your system at a slower pace than what a cigarette does and because this product is designed to be held like a cigarette, your hands are kept busy as well.

Description of the Electronic Cigarette - FDA BANNED

The electronic cigarette is a device similar to a cigarette in appearance, with a replaceable nicotine cartridge and is designed as an option to the tobacco products. When you puff on the mouthpiece the cartridge releases a controlled amount of nicotine to your system at a slower pace than what a cigarette does and because this product is designed to be held like a cigarette, your hands are kept busy as well.

Really ... the only difference is that the electronic cigarette is designed as a smoking alternative rather than a cessation aid.
