    Happened accross this interesting arcticle the other day 1 pack a day smoking equivalent to 300 X-rays a year. Tobacco companies knew about this for years via internal research which was locked down.

    Drawing this around to vaping when they extract nicotine wonder if any of this radioactive polonium 210 material is also transferred in the process. Been trying to find some material on it

    Thoughts peeps?

    Wow many of the words used to describe this reminds me of speaking with the Oncologists especially "Hot Spots".

    My guess would be that any number of idiot anti-vaping researchers would have this info and would have already created numerous alarming headlines worldwide if liquid nic even remotely contained something akin to radioactivity
