    EXPERTS TALK HEAVY METAL

    [​IMG]

    Have you ever heard of heavy metals inside your electronic cigarette vapor? Are you concerned now that this might leading to your eventual demise? Well, fret not. You wouldn’t be the only one to raise this question.

    The problem is finding out just what levels of toxicity are in the vapor you and me enjoy so much. There are so many conflicting reports or scientific studies on the matter it is hard to tell what exactly the truth is.

    Recently a report surfaced by a world authority, Richard Polosa, in tobacco addiction and respiratory medicine that will finally shed some insight on the issue.

    So back to the original question. Should you be worried about the low level of metals that come with inhalation of e-cig vapor? Richard Palosa answered by saying:

    They should not. Current findings indicate that e-cigarettes are by far less harmful than tobacco cigarettes. First, levels of metals found in these studies are well below the maximum permissible daily exposure from inhalational medications according to the US Pharmacopeia.


    Second, although the levels found in e-cigarettes may pose some residual risk, it is by far lower compared to tobacco cigarettes. Please keep in mind that cigarette smoke contains a cocktail of more than 7000 toxic chemicals with more than 40 recognized carcinogenic substances and focusing on trace levels of metals does not create significant health advantage, but only alarmist headlines.


    Third, considering the reports from the environmental protection agencies, vapors should be more concerned of the air they breathe in polluted cities rather than their vaping!


    Finally, product innovation (new materials, cotton wicks, etc.) will eventually minimize these residual risks.

    He also went on to say:

    Portraying trace levels of a certain chemical as harmful is a common tactic used by journalists, lobbyist groups, and even governments to incite chemophobia to the public, which is now fuelling much of the emotional debate over ecigs. Of course, simply associating hazard with the presence of a metal does not mean that this in itself is dangerous.


    It is the dose that makes the poison, and so by that understanding, everything can be toxic at some level. But everything we touch, see, and smell is made up of chemicals, and anything reduced to its chemical name can sound sinister when presented to people who are unfamiliar with chemistry.


    Many journalists and lobbyist groups exploit this ignorance to their advantage when they want to demonize something and perpetuate ignorance.


    Readers of this blog will be all too familiar with this tactic, in the example of propylene glycol. Any article that wants to portray e-cigarettes as negative manages to neatly fit in a statement about propylene glycol being an ingredient in antifreeze.


    Of course, just because propylene glycol (or any other chemical) may have anti-freezing properties does not make it dangerous, and considering how ubiquitous propylene glycol is, fears regarding it are mostly unfounded. It is safely used in theatrical fog and asthma inhalers and many other common consumer products (like lotions and toothpaste).


    So as you can see these so called toxic metals are only harmful to the human body if you are exposed to large doses which most of us do not work inside chemical plants so there is no need to stay up all night worrying about your health.

    These same tactics were used in many different situations to influence the market. If one side does not profit from you having a healthier alternative then it would make sense to me that of course they would feed you a line of B.S. to keep you from using it.

    I would like to thank our friend at the Ashtray Blog for bringing these matters to light.
