The only conclusion was that the vapour isn’t harmless, it doesn’t appear to comment on how damaging it can be or how much damage smoking cigarettes can do to the same cells. Might be minimal harm. Curious to see if we get any more actual studies. Much like marijuana it may be difficult to obtain proper grants and funding due to the demonization of the product.
I don't think anyone in their right mind thought it would be harmless just a lot less harmless than actual smoking. I'm sure the long term effects of vaping will present itself but obviously what is happening right now is not due to normal vaping or even 5-10 year vapers, this is a drastic sudden affliction which anyone with half a normal thought process could see is not a direct correlation to normal vaping.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Noticed little cards at Circle-K pointing to this website: https://www.mypackischanging.com/

I'm kind of impressed that an e-cig company managed to make a giant advertising website that masquerades as a PSA about plain packaging laws. That's just brilliantly cynical.

I'm confused by what you mean?? I didn't see anything ecig related on the site. And the company is Benson and hedges a well known cigarette company. The only thing I saw was tobacco. Heet are not vapour products they are "smokeless tobacco" which is slightly warmed tobacco. Heets are no where near what vaping actually is and can't be lobbed into the same pile. You could still remove the tobacco and ise it lile a regular cigarette.
