E Cigarettes Gain Popularity Despite FDA Warning

A few weeks ago, the FDA put out information that at first glance looked like the e cigarette was a danger to the public because of the diethylene glycol that was found in one of 18 cartridges tested.

The scare did not last long as thousands started researching the chemicals found in the test results to find that all of the chemicals listed are not only in tobacco cigarettes, but also in FDA approved cessation products and thousands of common consumer products that are on grocery store shelves.

Many have also started researching the money trail between special interest groups and those who would benefit from an FDA ban on e-cigarettes, particularly ASH, the Action on Smoking and Health. The group receives grants from Pfizer, the maker of the anti-smoking drug Chantix that has caused a disconcerting number of people who used it to commit suicide since it was released onto the market. PayPal, a popular payment processor online, recently stopped doing business with e-cigarette retailers due to whispers from ASH that the company could be held legally liable for their involvement in the processing of e-cigarette payments.

Even with all of the damage that was attempted by the FDA and special interest groups like ASH, the smokers and supporters of the product continue to sing the praises of the e cigarette in word and with their money as e cigarette sales continue to soar on a local level through retail merchants and nationally through online retailers.

There is also an ongoing case in a federal court in concerning the FDA and two American E Cigarette companies and it seems that this is an issue that may not end anytime in the near future.

    Nicotine is a vasocontrictor and is certainly not healthy for anyone who has heart disease, is at risk for developing it. For anyone, the administration of nicotine puts stress on your heart without the added benefits of lets say working out. Also, I watched a disturbing clip from CNN where the reporter actually suggested creating an addiction to the “safe” cigarettes. Addictions have a huge effect on how our bodies function and inevitably lead to withdrawal. If someone is healthy, why would anyone suggest a behavior that will alter their bodies functioning to the point where they will have created a dependence to a drug in order for them to function properly again. Withdrawal from nicotine occurs rapidly and is a painful process when trying to quit. Thus why nicotine is so addictive.
