Trying To Quit? This E-Cigarette Tweets Your Shame

E-cigarettes use a battery and small coil to heat flavored liquid nicotine and water, providing smokers with an inhalable vapor that feels like smoking a cigarette, without the harmful chemicals and tobacco of the real thing. Theyre primarily sold as a device to help smokers quit, but because they dont use tobacco, they arent subject to FDA or state smoking regulations, and can be advertised on television . This fact has led big tobacco companies to start investing in e-cigarettes, which has some anti-smoking groups worried that they may start to use them as gateways to the real thing . Connecting the e-cigarette to Twitter, where it could potentially go viral and reach millions of people, seems like it would be a dream come true for big tobacco companies. But the people at R/GA say they view the tool as more of a tracking device along the lines of the Jawbone wristband, and the tweets the device sends focus, however glibly, on the benefits of quitting, not the novelty of the device itself.

“I have seen first-hand how they can help,” he said. The American Cancer Society opposed Jackson’s efforts last year and will continue to fight against efforts to reduce taxes on e-cigarettes, said James Gray, director of government relations for the Cancer Action Network. There is no scientific evidence to back claims that e-cigarettes are an effective means of weening smokers from their habit. No other state has taken the actions Jackson has proposed for Oklahoma, Gray said.

E-cig sellers jockey for market position before FDA issues regulations

“We’re supposed to start a campaign by the end of the year,” Alelov said of Logic’s TV push. But, he added, “we want to wait for the FDA’s proposed regulations to suggest “what we can and can’t show on television.” Matthew Steingraber, co-founder of White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes , said there are “positives” that come from having no federal regulation, including “flexibility in the type of nicotine we can offer, and we’re not held to a certain flavor.” White Could sells e-cigarettes containing six different strengths, ranging from “nicotine-free all the way up to 5.4 percent by volume,” he said, adding that the options are a selling point to those looking to transition to e-cigs and then taper down their nicotine consumption. The Tarpon Springs, Fla.-based company also sells 19 different flavors of e-cigs, including two added last month: Iced Berry and Zero K, which boasts “a cold blast of peppermint.” Flavors are prohibited for traditional cigarette makers. In 2009, the FDA flexed its muscle in regulating tobacco for the first time by banning candy- fruit- or clove-flavored cigarettes because of concerns they would attract teens. “Adults, in fact, like fruit-flavored things, and I think it’s a nice change, whenever you’re switching from tobacco, which tastes horrible, to have different flavors available to you,” Steingraber said. He is concerned that the FDA might decide to ban flavored e-cigarettes as well.

Dr. Wynn says that’s concerning, not only because of the potential injuries they could inflict, but because you may not always know what’s in them. “We don’t know what the industry put in the electronic cigarettes,” Dr. Wynn said. “I believe we need more research to determine whether the electronic cigarettes are harmful or helpful for patients.” As for the Sloans, they say they’ll never try another. “Every time I see someone buying one at a gas station or anywhere, I let them know that you know, be careful because they can explode,” Sloan said.

Could the risks be ameliorated by changes in engineering? Regulatory concerns go beyond the chemical background of the product. Even if e-cigarettes are shown to be less toxic than cigarettes, there are social implications to consider, the authors pointed out. The acceptance and prevalence of smoking a hand-held device may promote and renormalize the use of cigarettes, electronic or not.

The World Health Organization advises against E-cigarettes

E-cigarette maker targets Colorado

The second question posed by the WHO is Is use of electronic cigarettes (ENDS) an effective method for quitting tobacco smoking? Again, the global health body answers by saying this has not been scientifically demonstrated. ENDS are often touted as tobacco replacements, smoking alternatives or smoking cessation aids. But we know that for smoking cessation products to be most effectively and safely used, they need to be used according to instructions developed for each product through scientific testing. There are no scientifically proven instructions for using ENDS as replacements or to quit smoking. The implied health benefits associated with these claims are unsubstantiated or may be based on inaccurate or misleading information. Based on this information, the WHO concludes that consumers should be strongly advised not to use any of these products, including electronic cigarettes.

Wed Jul 10, 2013 2:50pm EDT Totally Wicked Responds to the European Parliament Decision to Regulate Electronic Cigarettes that Will Cost Lives Tobacco cigarettes kill 700,000 people every year in the EU.* E-cigarettes have the potential to disrupt the business model of the established tobacco industry. However, rather than encouraging this, MEPs on the European Parliaments Environment Committee have today voted to have e-cigarettes regulated as a medicinal products, a move that the Parliaments own Legal Affairs Committee said, constitutes a ban. E-cigarettes can only be considered medicinal if they directly treat a disease. E-cigarettes do not do this; they simply deliver clean nicotine without the tar, carbon monoxide, and volatile hot gases of cigarettes. For people who switch from cigarettes, they hugely reduce risk, while satisfying the need for nicotine and some of the behavioural aspects of smoking. Far from helping those smokers who want to switch, medicines regulation will add costs, impose burdens, apply restrictions, and hold back innovation.

Since at least 2009, the federal Food and Drug Administration has warned about potential health risks associated with e-cigarettes. In addition to nicotine, the products contain substances such as propylene glycol and artificial flavors that might, the agency warns, penetrate deeply into the lungs. However, the products at least for now are not regulated. More than a dozen states, including Colorado, have banned the sale of e-cigarettes to minors.
