Special Interest Deceptions Continue to Rampant About Electronic Cigarettes

As the battle continues over the electronic cigarette, more deceptive practices are being used to send out dangerously misleading information on the popular product.

GAINESVILLE, Fla., Dec. 17 -- Over the last few weeks there has been an increase of the amount of scare language that is used by e cigarette opposition in an attempt to scare the population concerning the electronic cigarette. Many are questioning the tactics of these groups when the evidence clearly shows that the product is indeed a safer alternative to tobacco according to several studies, lab reports and opinions from top medial and harm reduction specialist around the world.

Special interest groups appear to have no legitimate argument against the electronic cigarette and have stepped up the use of catch phrases like "an ingredient found in anti-freeze" to describe propylene glycol, when it is an that ingredient is also found in the food supply and asthma inhalers that children use on a daily basis.

There have also been statements from special interest on the dangers of nicotine and less than accurate information about this substance stating that nicotine in a vapor, even in low concentrations can cause cancer in bystanders. These statements are in direct contradiction of current scientific evidence.

"Nicotine is probably the second most used drug after caffeine." Amazingly, no one thinks of caffeine as a harmful drug. Nor should they. "The possible dangers of nicotine are dwarfed by the dangers associated with tobacco. Pure nicotine has not been associated with the risk of cancer." States The International Harm Reduction Association. "If one could entertain the unrealistic assumption that all tobacco users would switch to clean nicotine tomorrow, we would see an immediate effect (for the better) on cardiovascular disorders, and a delayed effect on respiratory and cancer disease."
