Additionally, some question electronic cigarettes safety and believe that vaporizers could be just as harmful to people as smoking real cigarettes. But according to an article on VaporJedi.com, “There have been no reported negative side effects even in people who vaporize heavily all day every day for years. Unlike a cigarette, you don’t actually burn anything and pretty much all you inhale is a bit of water vapor and the flavor of your choice. Everything from chocolate, to fruit, to bacon, to tobacco, you can get eJuice in pretty much any flavor you can imagine.” Vapor Jedi’s line of Canadian eJuice with nicotine or without is available exclusively on the new website. Made with certified kosher and food grade ingredients of the highest quality and purity, Vapor Jedi eJuice is made entirely in Canada with great love and care and only the most positive vibes according to company founder, Mitch Tarala.

Electronic cigarettes could hit BAT and Imperial Tobacco harder than expected, say analysts
Many health advocates worry that with big tobaccos deep pockets, the marketing will become more aggressive, and even more youth-oriented, creating a young generation of e-cigarette smokers hooked on nicotine before researchers fully understand what risks the products may pose. Already, Lorillard launched a slick cable TV ad for its blu eCigs with dashing movie actor Stephen Dorff playing a rebel. Spots from smaller companies, such as Logic, are popping up on hip-hop radio stations, promoting summer concerts. And in Internet ads, a sexy woman in a stylish hat, looking like a character straight out of the popular Mad Men TV show, promotes the e-cigs brand, which has packaging that features the slogan, For a healthier lifestyle. The marketing borrows a page from glitzy tobacco company commercials that filled the airwaves before a federal ban on TV and radio cigarette ads four decades ago. (E-cigarettes are not considered tobacco products, so they are not covered by the federal restriction.) Quang Tran is already sold. The 28-year-old former tobacco smoker, who runs his familys Green Garden Liquor & Deli in Hyde Park, started selling e-cigarettes last month, after several customers asked for them.

UTSA scholars to study health effects of electronic cigarettes
We expect consumers worldwide to migrate from tobacco smoking to e-cigarettes at an accelerating rate through 2020. We estimate the e-cigarette market will grow from $2bn in 2012 to $3bn in 2013 (tobacco is approximately $700bn). In the longer term, the total combined market will shrink at a more rapid rate than most investors envisage as e-cigarettes wean smokers off tobacco, but do not attract new users into the overall category. Winners and losers will emerge, but are hard to predict at this relatively early stage in e-cigarettes’ development, and there will be margin pressure in the short term across the board as companies race for share. This new uncertainty, and the faster long-term decline of tobacco which we predict, should cause investors to reassess their holdings in the sector.

Electronic cigarettes sprout on Boston shelves
They believe that the inhalation of vaporized nicotine has the potential to increase a person’s resting metabolism, making exercise problematic. They also believe it prevents the cardiovascular system from properly regulating arterial pressure and decreases the brain’s ability to regulate blood flow. “E-cigarettes are perceived as safer than actual smoking, and some people even perceive them to be an attractive weight-loss tool,” said Fogt. “This study aims to quantify the metabolic consequences of inhaling vaporized nicotine.” Cooke added, “This study is an important first step to understanding the physiological complications and public health concerns surrounding the use of e-cigarettes. It will also give us a better understanding of the health effects of pure nicotine without the harmful poisons found in tobacco products on the autonomic nervous system.” If this study confirms the scholars’ hypotheses, additional research will be needed to further understand the immediate effects of vaporized nicotine, the impact of dosage and age on an e-cigarette user’s health and the long-term effects of e-cigarettes.” The UTSA Department of Health and Kinesiology serves more than 1,000 students in four undergraduate degree programs, a minor and a master’s program.
