E-Cigs Help With COPD

Over at The Rest Of The Story: Tobacco News, Analysis and Commentary, Dr. Michael Siegel reports on a study that showed e- cigarettes improve the condition of those suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. More evidence e-cigs provide a harm reduction alternative and more evidence the British Royal College of Physicians were right then they declared a while back substitution of e- cigs for regular cigarettes would be a boon to British people's health:

"...smokers with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who switch to electronic cigarettes experience an improvement in their symptoms and have fewer COPD exacerbations."

We can be sure this will be ignored by our Food and Drug Administration and others intent on the war on e- cigarettes.

About two days after the election, when I finished what cigarettes I had, I went to e-cigs. I have the intention of quitting entirely but this is part of the transition. I must say it has been easy so far after forty plus years of smoking. My lungs feel way better and no more hacking up lung in the mornings. My plan is to start weaning myself off of e-cigs after the first of the year. So far so good.

Put anything in your lungs other than the air we have available is counter productive to good health.

I heard from a girl that lost 35 pounds using e-cigs. She had a problem with sweets and replaced candy with sweet flavored e-cigs.

In other words, pounding yourself in the head with a claw hammer is better at reducing symptoms of a headache compared with pounding yourself in the head with a 2 pound sledgehammer.

Smokers are desperate for any positive news, even if they have to make it up

The fda already knows this, from the millions of "ancedotals" who officially wrote in during the required public feedback pre-deeming time. They chose to ignore them.

Dr. Siegel, who runs that blog, is by his own admission and anti- smoking zealot. He supports e-cigarettes as a means of harm reduction and helping people quit smoking.

Smokers are people who enjoy their comforting habits. Vapers are smokers who found a more comforting way to enjoy their comforting habit.
Anti smoking zealots turned anti harm reduction zealots beating the same drum are addicted to tax payers supplying them with the funds needed to fullfill their hate campaign created for people control. Hitler would be proud of his minions.
