Shady Study Claims Electronic Cigarettes Don’t Help Smokers Quit

single_review

According to a research letter published by researchers from the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at UCSF (University of California, San Francisco) electronic cigarettes are ineffective as smoking cessation aids. After analyzing the habits of 88 smokers who also used e-cigarettes, scientists found they were no more likely to quit cigarettes after a year, compared to smokers who didn't use them. Sad news, isn't it? Relax, though, this scientific work can only...

Bogus Study Would Have You Believe E-Cigarettes Encourage Smoking in Youth

single_review

A new study co-authored by Lauren Dutra and Stanton Glantz (yes, THAT Stanton Glantz) and titled "Electronic Cigarettes and Conventional Cigarette Use Among US Adolescents", suggests e-cigarettes does not discourage, and may encourage, tobacco cigarettes smoking among US teenagers. Actually, the study itself does not imply that at all, but that didn't stop its authors from drawing a preposterous conclusion. Electronic cigarettes "aggravate the tobacco epidemic among...

Firebrand Liquitine E-Liquid Review

Like most respectable e-cigarette companies in the US, Firebrand has switched from sourcing its e-liquids from China to making its own, in a sterile laboratory, using only USP-certified ingredients and L-Grade nicotine. They also have some interesting flavors that you can't find anywhere else, and that's really what got me interested in the Liquitine line. Firebrand e-cigarettes have been around for a while now, and even though they're nowhere near as popular as bigger brands like

VIP Uno Disposable E-Cigarette Review

VIP is an English brand of electronic cigarettes that specializes in both rechargeable and disposable e-cigs. I was offered their VIP Uno for review, and since I hadn't really tried too many disposables before, I wholeheartedly accepted. Although I had never tested any of their units, the name "VIP electronic cigarettes" sounded very familiar. I quickly realized it was because I had written about them in the past. They're the company behind the very

FIN Disposable E-Cigarette Review

I have probably tried around 50 different brands of electronic cigarettes and e-liquids ever since I started vaping, but only one of them has been a disposable (and that one came as a bonus with a starter kit I ordered). I've always found the battery&cartomizer formula hassle-free and cost-effective, so I never felt the need to try disposables. But I was recently asked to review a couple of disposables and I jumped at the opportunity to share my thoughts about them with you. One of the two...
