Electronic Cigarette - Doctors say Healthier Alternative


I don't smoke but this actually seems like a very good idea. Apparently they are allowed in bars, airplanes and other places that ban smoking.
“The Electronic Cigarette gives you nicotine, but it doesn't give you any of the other 4,000 chemicals from a cigarette that can cause cancer, among other problems..” - Dr. Travis Stork from “The Doctors”

The electronic cigarette also is not encompassed by most smoking bans and regulations. With the lack of second-hand smoke, smokers are excited to find that many businesses, bars, and even air planes allow them to smoke e-cigarettes indoors. Many electronic cigarette users have also received special permission from their employers to smoke e-cigarettes in the work place.

While electronic cigarettes may be a good idea you might want to stay away from the people that made that video I posted. I just came across this review for the company putting out the video while trying to research their website before even deciding whether to click on it or not. (I didn't)

Hey Optima, after 3 conversations and NO refund... Piss off... Go ahead and take there $5.00 test of there product, yet be ready to get nailed for $116.00 in a Month!

After that I did a search This site came up. It looks competitive, legitimate and informative.

Can Electronic Cigarettes Challenge Big Tobacco?
E-cigarettes, invented in 2003, currently account for less than 1% of the $80 billion U.S. cigarette market. But they are growing rapidly: UBS projects that sales, which have doubled every year since 2008, will reach $1 billion in 2013. Numbers like that have put Big Tobacco on notice. “Consumption of e-cigs may overtake traditional cigarettes in the next decade,” predicts Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog. “And they’ll only evolve and improve as time goes forward — at far less risk. The technology portion of it is sort of like Apple. This is just Version 1.”

In addition as an aid to quitting smoking it also gives smokers something to do in places that don't allow smoking like bars, restaurants, and my house! Sorry. I meant to say air planes.

Went to this website today. .
http://www.e-healthcigarettes.com/

They do a lot of marketing on Ebay. Their website prices also rival ebay's.

E-health... Now that's smart marketing!

I noticed on ebay they are also calling them vaporizers instead of cigarettes. Do you think this might be a move to avoid potential harassment from tobacco companies and their lobbyists?

NEWS FLASH: Smoking (including vaping) is bad for you. Okay, so maybe it's even worse than we thought. BUT IT'S DEFINITELY BAD!
