Thank you

Thank you for giving your family and friends the opportunity to try an alternative to smoking by sharing last month’s link to the free V2 Starter Kit.

We’ve given way hundreds of kits and we’d like to think that, together, we’ve changed hundreds of lives.

And thank you for staying sane when the rest of world seems to be going mad. It’s a bonkers fact but the UK public are less convinced today that vaping is safer than smoking than they were a year ago! And that’s despite all the medical evidence to the contrary.

This is, no doubt, a direct result of the anti-vaping agenda by the media with its proliferation of junk science and, dare we say it, ‘fake news’ about vaping.

Which is why, in this issue of your Vaping Good News, we’re going to start by busting all the crazy myths that surround vaping. So please share this newsletter with anyone you know who needs to be reassured about the wisdom of vaping. And then, as usual, we’re going to have some fun.

Public Health England (PHE) busts 6 vaping myths

Martin Dockrell, Tobacco Control Programme Lead for PHE, says this about…

Myth 1 Myth 2

Vaping gives you popcorn lung

“Diacetyl [The compound that gives e-liquid a more buttery flavour] is banned as an ingredient from e-cigarettes and e-liquids in the UK. It had been detected in some e-liquid flavourings in the past, but at levels hundreds of times lower than in cigarette smoke. Even at these levels, smoking is not a major risk factor for this rare disease.”


E-liquids aren’t regulated

“The UK has some of the strictest regulation for e-cigarettes in the world. Under the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016, e-cigarette products are subject to minimum standards of quality and safety, as well as packaging and labelling requirements to provide consumers with the information they need to make informed choices.” …Just don’t buy your e-liquid from someone who can’t prove they meet those high standards.

Myth 3 Myth 4

Nicotine is harmful

“Evidence shows nicotine actually carries minimal risk of harm to health. Although nicotine is the reason people become addicted to smoking, it is the thousands of chemicals contained in cigarette smoke that causes almost all of the harm.” …And you can choose to have 0% nicotine in your e-liquid if that’s what floats your vaping boat!

Second-hand vape is bad

“Unlike cigarettes, there is no side-stream vapour emitted by an e-cigarette into the atmosphere, just the exhaled aerosol. PHE’s latest evidence review found that to date, there have been no identified health risks of passive vaping to bystanders.”

Myth 5 Myth 6

Vaping is a gateway to smoking

“There is no evidence so far to support the concern that e-cigarettes are a route into smoking among young people. UK surveys show that young people are experimenting with e-cigarettes, but regular use is rare and confined almost entirely to those who already smoke.”

Vaping keeps people smoking

“Of the 2.9 million adult e-cigarette users in the UK, more than half have completely stopped smoking. A further 770,000 have given up both smoking and vaping. At the same time, quit success rates have been improving and we’re seeing an accelerated drop in smoking rates, currently at a record low of 15.5% in England.”

Annoying vapers / Research

The Independent newspaper broke this perplexing story. Scientists were baffled by film of a wild elephant blowing out plumes of smoke while consuming smouldering lumps of charcoal.

Researchers from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) filmed the female elephant exhibiting the unusual behaviour at Nagahrole National Park in India.

She picks up lumps of charcoal with her trunk, putting the coals in her mouth, and then exhales large clouds of smoke.

The current theory is that she’s eating the charcoal for medicinal reasons... Possibly for a dodgy tummy?


MP suggests promoting e-cigs on fag packs

The UK’s Pharmacy Minister (yes, there really is a ‘Pharmacy Minister’) Steve Brine, has said he would consider a proposal to use cigarette packets to promote e-cigs as smoking cessation tools.

The proposal in question was put forward by MP Stephen Metcalfe at a House of Commons Science and Technology Committee hearing on e-cigs.

Brine explained that, although it’s up to individual councils to decide how the £16bn allocated to public health should be spent, he thinks that, if the latest research about the benefits of e-cigs was made available, it would be a no-brainer to promote the devices as smoking cessation tools.

Fag packet and hippy

The 1 Second Survey

In the last 12 months, have you become MORE or LESS confident that vaping is better for your health than smoking tobacco?


More Less Neither

The results of April’s survey:

Do you, or do you want to, vape Cannabidiol (CBD)?

YES for medical
YES for leisure
YES for both

You ask. We answer.

Following our earlier story this year about the ‘flavour versus vapour debate: PG or VG?’ we’ve had a lot of people asking us exactly how much of each is in our e-liquids. Well, here’s the answer. The table below shows the percentages in our oh-so-tasty V2 Platinum E-liquids.

Remember that a VG-heavy liquid produces thicker and fuller clouds than PG, but PG is better at delivering the complex flavours of e-liquids.

And if you want 100% VG to create BIG clouds of vapour, then our friends at VSAVI have a wide range.
