You may have read about a new study earlier this week saying that e-cigarettes are harming your lungs. The study got national headlines with a variety of overblown headlines claiming e-cigs are dangerous.   Before you panic though there are few things to note about this study and its importance.   When looking at such a widely publicised study it's always good to look at the size, the method of testing and what it is actually claiming. It’s very easy...
What actually goes into making cigarettes? We all know that cigarettes are bad for us. But did you know what’s in the cigarette that is hurting you?   When asked, many smokers will say that cigarettes are just made up of tobacco wrapped up in paper. But it's much more than this. According to the Cancer Research UK and the International Agency for Research on Cancer, cigarettes also contain over 5,000 chemicals.   Nicotine is the main reason we smoke after...
An interesting new study looked at the difference between vapers who had never smoked before and non-smokers found no difference.   The new study released by Italian scientists from the University of Catania wanted to see what happened to the non-smoking vapers after 3 ½ years. They then compared the results against non-smokers and found the e-cigarettes had...wait for it….no impact.   The researchers concluded that there were no negative effects of e-cigarettes.   The study went in-depth as well: comparing weight, blood pressure, heart...

We all know that tobacco and smoking cigarettes are terrible for you, but did you know that nicotine can actually be good for you?

We all know smoking is terrible for us and those around us. But not many people realize how much worse smoking in the car is for you, compared to normal.

Any news where we see the number of people smoking dropping is normally a good thing. It means the years of information and anti-smoking schemes are working.
