“If the health risk associated with tobacco smoking is equal to 100, vaping health risk is 4. The choice is yours”.

The American Heart Association issued new policy recommendations on the use of e-cigarettes and their impact on tobacco-control efforts.

The AHA comes out in support of the FDA’s proposal, and even advocates further actions such as including vaping in smoke-free air laws and increasing taxes, but manages to hold this view despite conducting a fairly reasonable analysis of the evidence beforehand.

It seems like doublethink, but the AHA admits that e-cigarettes are likely much safer than smoking while still suggesting that strict regulation is necessary.

Smoking increases your risk of developing coronary heart disease two to four-fold, and more broadly is estimated to be responsible for almost 10 percent of cardiovascular disease cases worldwide.

One of the biggest potential benefits of e-cigarettes is reducing users’ risk of damaging their heart. So far there is limited evidence on this topic, but a recent study from Dr. Farsalinos suggests that unlike cigarette smoking, vaping doesn’t have any adverse effects on acute heart function.

Although it’s still way too early to declare e-cigs risk-free for your heart, the new study adds to the already substantial body of evidence suggesting that switching to vaping from smoking drastically decreases the risk of smoking related illness and death.

Another iteration of this misleading media tactic is upon us, with a new study reportedly finding that “E-cigarette secondhand smoke has ‘increased levels of toxic metals.’”

This is the general message gleaned from media coverage, but as usual, taking the apparently controversial step of actually reading the findings reveals that vapers are, in fact, exposed to considerably smaller quantities of harmful components than smokers.

New study suggests e-cigs are 60% more effective than NRT

http://ecigarettereviewed.com/e-cigs-are-60-percent-more-effective-than-nrt

One of the most insidious ideas spread about e-cigarettes is that they will actually reduce the numbers of smokers able to quit by reinforcing nicotine addiction, or even that they’re simply ineffective for quitting.

For anybody trying to peddle either of these highly unlikely arguments, a new piece of research (which is free to read) investigating the real-world use of e-cigarettes in the UK is probably not going to be an enjoyable read. The study looks at the numbers of smokers able to quit smoking through vaping in comparison to those who used nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) or tried to quit unassisted (“cold turkey”).
 
The findings suggest that – contrary to ill-informed, unsupported statements – smokers who choose to quit by vaping are successful more often than self-selected cold turkey or NRT users, when no further support is provided. There are some important limitations in how the research should be interpreted, however, so it’s wise to find out more about the study before declaring e-cigs to be 60 percent more effective than NRT.

Authors of a new paper by the New England Journal of Medicine claim that e-cigarettes lead to cocaine abuse. 

While we’ve gotten accustomed to hearing unsubstantiated claims about a gateway to tobacco, this takes things to a different level. While the media in the US were largely scared away from the story by a CASAA press release rightfully identifying the claim as “junk science,” UK newspapers were quite happy to repeat the claims. 

The problem is that the research the claim is actually based on simply addresses nicotine (the same stuff in patches and gums), was conducted on mice and is based on the idea that the gateway hypothesis is true, which it probably isn’t.

Dr. Carl Phillips of CASAA responded: "This study tells us little about human biology and nothing at all about real-world human behavior. It does not even measure mouse behavior. The study provides no evidence there is a gateway effect, and there is no reason to believe there is one. Even if there were, this would merely offer one hypothesis about why it happens, and tell us nothing about the real world."

New study on high voltage and formaldehyde output from e-cigs

This generated quite some discussion among vapers, as well as some initial analysis and added detail from Dr. Farsalinos, but the time between the publication of the NY Times article and the actual paper was 12 days.

The headline “Some E-Cigarettes Deliver a Puff of Carcinogens” stays with the readers, but the context is not only undisclosed, it’s unavailable. However, now the full paper has been released, we can dig a little deeper and find out what the scare-stories really mean for vapers.
There's a simple rule that you're not supposed to report scientific results to the media before the actual paper is released, a practice known as “science by press release.” The reason for this is pretty obvious: you report the findings but don't provide sufficient information on your ...

+Jenny Spring Yes, pretty much. The big problem seems to be that these kinds of studies are done with "smoking machines" rather than people, so a PV setup where a person would be going "EW! IT'S BURNT! GET IT AWAY!" is treated as a valid sample.

Top 10 high-drain batteries for sub-ohm vaping

http://ecigarettereviewed.com/top-10-high-drain-batteries-for-sub-ohm-vaping

Batteries are the driving force behind your mod, but they’re also a potential source of trouble if you’re demanding too much from them.

When you’re using standard atomizer or tank, the reasonably high resistances mean that battery limitation aren’t much of a concern at all, but if you start building your own coils, particularly at sub-ohm (< 1 ohm) resistances, the continuous discharge rating of the battery becomes pretty important.

Useful guides:
