  • Is Vaping Good or Bad For Your Teeth?

    Is Vaping Good or Bad For Your Teeth?

    Vaping is still quite new and there are still many things that people disagree on. One is whether vaping is good or bad for your teeth. This is a tricky subject, because there are elements of truth in each camp. Because you are not using tar or tobacco in e-cigarettes, many people assume that you won’t get the same side effects as smoking tobacco. But the nicotine in e-liquid and vape juice can still cause problems for your smile. In this blog post we try to settle this argument once and for all. What does smoking do to your teeth...

  • Cole Bishop just failed. What now?

    The much-vaunted Cole-Bishop Amendment was voted down on Sunday. The Cole Bishop amendment would have grandfathered all vaping products that were on the market on 8/8 last year, and exempted them from PMTAs. As things stand, then, we’re back on the FDA’s regulatory countdown; although the countdown was (perhaps not coincidentally) pushed back by 3 months on Monday. This is not to say, however, that things are the same as they were six months ago.

  • Did the UK just become the world's most vape-friendly country?

    Did the UK just become the world's most vape-friendly country?

    A shock announcement on Friday has confirmed the UK as the world’s most vape-friendly country. Just three weeks before the door closes for manufacturers to submit notifications under the new regulations, the MHRA announced that they would no longer require full ingredient disclosure from e-liquid manufacturers. It’s a move that will delight those who struggled to get their flavor suppliers to give up trade secrets but infuriate those who have invested a small fortune on toxicological work that now seems redundant. We anticipate that many more US e-liquid brands will now consider the UK as a territory worth doing business...

    Stanton Glantz grilled by Regulator Watch

    Professor Stanton Glantz, ardent opponent of vaping, has engaged in the first interview (that I know of) by a vaping supporter.

He believes most smokers do not make the full transition, instead becoming "dual users" He believes vaping is attracting "gigantic numbers of kids who probably would never pick...
