I always make sure to keep abreast of what the media have to say about E-Cigarette's, I find that although sometimes I want to scream in frustration it is a great way to know what those outside the vaping community think . If you follow us on Facebook and Twitter you'll see that I'll occasionally share my finds with the world, be they good or bad. Rarely, however, do I actually come across something that really speaks for the vapers of this country.
Yet scrolling through the BBC about a month ago I came across this fantastic article (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-23196369). At first I have to admit I was fairly skeptical as often I will find a great piece that will start off well then begin to cite 'research' proving that the E-Cigarettes should be wiped off the face of the earth before they corrupt the hearts and minds of our young. By the time I reached the end I was thoroughly impressed with what I had read. It seems as if the author, William Kremer, has spoken to users and found out for himself what it means to be a vaper and why we take it up in the first place.
Personally it's the first time I've read an article in the mainstream media that has made the point that nicotine by itself is not very dangerous, nor is it likely someone will overdose on it, especially via E-Cigarettes. This is even backed up by Maciej Goniewicz from Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York - an oncologist who has analysed e-cigarettes and the vapours they produce. There's also a few other researchers in there whose voices haven't been heard too loudly recently in the broadsheets, but who nonetheless help show Ecigs in a much better light.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the article and applaud Mr Kremer for giving us vapers more of a voice against the hyped up negativity helping to slap on the EU restrictions. Have a read and let me know your opinions.
