Electronic cigarettes or E-Cigarettes are turning out to be a deadly Trojan horse for cancer and magnitudes more harmful (up to ten times) than the tobacco products they are meant to save us from!
Once again the wool has been pulled over our proverbial eyes. A product introduced to replace a dangerous and life destroying one … turns out to be far more dangerous, and a boon for Big Pharma’s bottom line. But where is the research on this product proving its safety and viability prior to its approval and production … and who was responsible for that?
The following excerpt comes from the FDA website and in no place on this page does it state an increased Cancer risk or even make mention of it. The discussion is mostly concerning standardization or quality control …
Are you seriously freaking kidding me ???
Q: What are electronic cigarettes?
A: Electronic cigarettes are products designed to deliver nicotine or other substances to a user in the form of a vapor. Typically, they are composed of a rechargeable, battery-operated heating element, a replaceable cartridge that may contain nicotine or other chemicals, and an atomizer that, when heated, converts the contents of the cartridge into a vapor. This vapor can then be inhaled by the user. These products are often made to look like such products as cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. They are also sometimes made to look like everyday items such as pens and USB memory sticks, for people who wish to use the product without others noticing.
Q: What concerns does FDA have regarding electronic cigarettes?
A: FDA has not evaluated any e-cigarettes for safety or effectiveness.
Yea … read that again … !!!
Why is it that we must learn this devastating information from sources outside this country. With a budget of over $4,500,000,000 (4.5 billion) and a track record of graft, corruption and failures that would make a three time looser look like a winner, the FDA stands out once again as a …
HUGE WASTE OF TAX PAYER $$$
Today hundreds of thousands of of our minor children and millions of adults are using this mechanism because they assume or truly believe the lie that it is safe alternative to tobacco products … nothing could possibly be further from the truth. But the research has been done, just not by those who we depend on and fund massively to keep us safe and healthy (CDC/FDA).
And we wonder why the cancer rate just keeps on climbing … Hmm?
Attached is an article I came across that lit my fire of anger, please read on.
E-Cigs Have 10x More Cancer Causing Ingredients Than Regular Cigarettes
Japanese scientists announced that e-cigarettes contain 10 times the level of cancer-causing carcinogens than its counterpart in the tobacco world. At one time, e-cigarettes were touted as the answer to smoking without the complication of so many dangers.
The electronic nicotine products have increased in popularity with many believing that they are receiving a hit of nicotine without the health damage of a normal cigarette, laden with chemicals.
However, the research commissioned by the Japanese Ministry of Health found formaldehyde and acetaldehyde carcinogens in the liquid produced by a number of e-cigarette products, a health ministry official stated.
The group also learned that e-cigarettes can fuel potentially life-threatening drug-resistant pathogens. This is based on lab study where they tested e-cigs vapor on live methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and human cells.
The formaldehyde carcinogen was found to be much more present in the e-cigarette liquids than in the chemicals used in regular cigarettes, according to the official.
“In one brand of e-cigarette the team found more than 10 times the level of carcinogens contained in one regular cigarette,” said researcher Naoki Kunugita.
“Especially when the wire (which vaporizes the liquid) gets overheated, higher amounts of those harmful substances seemed to be produced.”
However, Kunugita added that the levels of the formaldehyde carcinogen fluctuated in the final results.
“You call them e-cigarettes, but they are products totally different from regular tobacco,” the Japanese health ministry official said.
“The government is now studying the possible risks associated with them, with view to looking at how they should be regulated.”
Earlier this year, the World Health Organisation (WHO) urged governments to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors because of the “serious threat” posed to them.
The UN health agency said that despite the lack of evidence on the damage caused by e-cigarettes, there was enough “to caution children and adolescents, pregnant women, and women of reproductive age” about their use, adding that they should be outlawed from indoor public spaces.
According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): “More than a quarter of a million youth who had never smoked a cigarette used electronic cigarettes in 2013, according to a CDC study published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research. This number reflects a three-fold increase, from about 79,000 in 2011, to more than 263,000 in 2013.”
