I could go on and on about e cigarettes but I want you, sincere member of our BecomeanEX Community to know the truth with your own eyes! So I have brought back this infoblog for this one subject. My wish is that folks who are using e cigarettes or contemplating their use for smoking cessation will read the articles I’ve included. Then if you still are determined to use e cigarettes you will be doing so at your own informed risk!

Let’s take these issues one at a time:

1.      Some youth have their first taste of nicotine via e-cigarettes.

2.     Nicotine absorption varies too much between brands.

“FDA found that cartridges labeled as containing no nicotine contained nicotine and that three different electronic cigarette cartridges with the same label emitted a markedly different amount of nicotine with each puff.”

3.      Just because particulate matter from e-cigarettes isn't well studied, doesn't mean it's safe.

5.     Major tobacco companies have acquired or produced their own e-cigarette products.
