Will Congress Save E-Cigarettes?

single_review

The US Food and Drug Administration is in the final stages of announcing regulations for electronic cigarettes and other vaping products. In their current form, they would almost certainly wipe out 99% of the market, leaving the industry in the hands of Big Tobacco, and it seems only Congress has the power to stop this from happening. Will they do it? According to a number of sources, the only thing holding the FDA from finally announcing its final Read More...

Study Finds E-Cigarettes Cause Short-Term Airway Inflammation

single_review

Researchers at the Hellenic Cancer Society, Athens, Greece, recently published a study on the immediate effects of vaping and found that it causes "acute pulmonary function impairment" for less than 30 minutes after use. The full study will be presented at the 2016 CHEST World Congress (April 15-17) in Shanghai, but the media somehow picked it up and covered it extensively as soon as Read More...

Media Claims E-Cigs Don’t Help You Quit Because People Aren’t Googling the Right Terms

single_review

A new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that although the number of Google searches for vaping related terms has grown dramatically in the last few years, they are focused more on shopping than health. This was apparently more than enough for the media to conclude that e-cigarettes don't help smokers quit. In order to better understand the patterns of e-cigarette use, researchers from the University of North Carolina Lineberger...

Switching to E-Cigs Leads to Long-Term Health Improvements in Smokers Suffering from Asthma, Small Study FInds

single_review

While the media is busy covering every single incident involving exploding e-cigarettes, in an attempt to make using them seem even more dangerous than smoking, respectable scientists are hard at work conducting research that shows vaping can have very positive effects on smokers' health. One such researcher is Dr. Ricardo Polosa, an internationally recognized expert on tobacco harm reduction and professor at the University of Catania, Italy. Back in 2013, he and his...

So-Called Study Finds Tobacco Cigarettes Are Cheaper Than E-Cigs

single_review

Ever since e-cigarettes hit Western markets and became an alternative to combustible cigarettes, one of the main arguments for switching was the considerably low price of vaping when compared to smoking. If a new study by the American Cancer Society is to be believed, we have all been living a lie and the price of tobacco cigarettes is actually much lower than that of both both disposable and refillable electronic cigarettes. Researchers led by Alex Liber of the...

SMOK TF-RDTA Review

I love dripping, but using an RDA while on the go is just not the best option. Tanks are perfect in that kind of situation, but they just don't put out the same insane flavor you get from a good RDA and some are even sketchy in the vapor department. Wouldn't it be nice if we had the best of both worlds with none of their shortcomings. Well, it just so happens that the people at SMOK have come up with just such a device. Introducing the SMOK TF-RDTA. As the name suggests, this latest member...

SMOK Stick One Basic Review

Vaping has come a long way in the last few years, with companies pushing out all kinds of advanced high-power mods and extreme performance sub-ohm tanks at such a rapid pace that even professional reviewers are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with them. Basic vaping gear, on the other hand, seemed to be largely ignored last year despite the fact that that's exactly the stuff the vast majority of vapers are interested in. However, if the start of 2016 is any indication, we're...

UD Simba Tank Review

With hits like the Zephyrus, Bellus or Goliath tanks under its belt, it's safe to say that Chinese company Youde (UD) Technology is an industry leader when it comes to designing high-quality sub-ohm tanks. The new UD Simba follows in the footsteps of its predecessors - it's chuck full of innovative features and promises users the best flavor and vapor production they can get out of a tank. Let's see if the Simba can live up to the hype: I was really excited when the guys at Heaven Gifts...

Evil Cloud e-Liquid Review

Evil Cloud is a UK-based e-juice company that has apparently spent months creating "the most evil e-liquid of all times" and came up with four flavors that they describe as "truly heavenly". This oxymoron may be intriguing enough for some people to give Evil Cloud a try, but I personally found the flavor profiles of their four blends to enticing to pass up. I was not at all familiar with the Evil Cloud brand when I stumbled upon it on an online UK vape shop, but after reading the...

Teardrip E-Liquid Review

Teardrip Juice Co. is an artisan e-liquid company based in Orange County, California that specializes in delicious fruit-based dessert vapes. Teardrip premium e-juice hit the market last summer and has been getting rave reviews ever since, so I just had to give it a try. Teardrip may be a small, relatively unknown e-liquid maker compared to other big players in the industry, but they surprised the hell out of me from the moment I laid eyes on one of their juice bottles. Normally, I don't...
