1. Smoking is everywhere
Run out of your favourite smokes? Chances are a re-up is only 5 minutes away. Heck, even pharmacies sell cigarettes - you try picking up your favourite vape from Walgreens. I’m right, aren’t I? It’s an easy life being a smoker. Until it kills you.
2. Smoking is easy
What’s to know? You put it in your mouth, set fire to it, take 12 puffs and you’re done. Vaping, not so much. let’s face it, there’s a learning curve to most vape that simply doesn’t exist with smoking. And do you know when to change a coil? Do you know when you’re done vaping?

In a move that will surprise no one (although it may dismay some on the anti-vaping front), Riccardo Polosa and six scientific colleagues from the University of Catania and other European institutions, found that switching from smoking to vaping improved the health of asthma sufferers.

It was announced that results would be published Thursday evening, January 30, at 11 pm, Pacific Standard Time. NEWS FLASH: Findings show e-cig vapour contains healthful chemicals. See below!
In preparation for the big unveiling of her results, the news outlet consulted UC San Francisco professor Stanton Glantz, known for his strong stance against e-cigs, for some unbiased information about the product. Predictably, Glantz warned of dire perils.
One of the perils he selected for special
The E-Cigarette Summit last week was a game changer. I think everyone on all sides of the issue can see that. My take-away, one of them, anyhow, was a vivid picture of the community that has formed among those who want electronic cigarettes to be a harm reduction tool.
A community of scientists, public health advocates, and consumers, joining forces with those who market the product they advocate, in an effort to bring about the triumph of common sense in the regulation of vapes.
Nowhere was this clearer than in the misfortunes of the one hapless representative of Big Tobacco, perhaps not the only one present, but the only one who dared to speak up.
