Save vaping: Tweet to Trump, McConnell, and Ryan to repeal the FDA deeming regulations

The first 100 days of the Trump Administration are quickly coming to a close, and there is still no word yet on the future repeal of the FDA deeming regulations.  With Trump’s surprise victory last November 8, many in the vaping industry were optimistically hopeful.  Would a Republican presidency finally lead to the overturning of Obama-era regulations that threaten to wipe out the thousands of vape shops across the country?

New report shows a UK smoker switches to vaping every four minutes

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) in Great Britain has recently released an updated statistical bulletin on adult smoking habits in the UK.  According to the report, British smokers are switching to vaping at a rate of one every four minutes.

Vaping has no effect on myocardial heart functions, say scientists

In perhaps the first vaping study of its kind, a group of European scientists has released new research indicating that the use of electronic cigarettes has no adverse effects on the myocardial heart functions of the human body.  Led by Dr. Konstantinos E Farsalinos, a world-class cardiologist from the Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center in Kallithéa, Greece, the research team evaluated a control group of volunteer participants consisting of both smokers and vapers. 36 smokers and 40 vapers participated.  The smoking group consisted of individuals who smoke at least 15 cigarettes per day for a period of 5 years or longer.  The...
