Recently, vaping industry and e-cigarette users have witnessed an eager discussion caused by sad instances of mysterious “vaping-related” lung diseases, and even deaths. What exactly happened? What consequences will the industry face? What can you do, if you are working in the vaping industry?
Dangerous e-liquids of unknown origin
Everyone’s attention was put to United States, where there were cases of over 500 people who suffered from lung injury. Unfortunately, there were also 7 confirmed deaths associated with e-cigarette product use. According to CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention) “All reported cases have a history of e-cigarette product use or Vaping”.
Many scientists claim that the whole problem arose when users began to vape e-liquids from unknown sources and even e-liquids with psychoactive substances. What is important in this case, e-liquids tested by FDA (Food and Drug Administration) contained THC and other dangerous substances: “Many of the samples tested by states or by the FDA as part of this ongoing investigation have been identified as vaping products containing THC, and further, most of those samples with THC tested also contained significant amounts of vitamin E acetate”
Both substances (THC and vitamin E acetate) are not allowed in e-liquids according to TPD (European) legislation. Moreover, vitamin E acetate is said to have harmful effects on the alveoli and damage to the mechanism of self-cleaning of the respiratory tract from microorganisms and impurities. read more »

Most vapers are still waiting for a long term study that would support the claims that e-liquids and vaping are much better for people than regular cigarettes. Now there is something we can actually show to the sceptics thanks to Dr. Riccardo Polosa.
Accoriding to a study that was recently presented on the E-Cigarette Summit in London and published in the Nature journal, vapers that have never smoked regular cigarettes experience no apparent long-term negative health effects from vaping.
Research group led by Dr. Riccardo Polosa measured coronary, respiratory and pulmonary vital signs in a group of young vapers with a 3.5 years vaping experience and no prior cigarette smoking history. Similar group of non vapers, no smokers was tested as well as a control group.
Scientists taken into consideration blood pressure, heart rate, exhaled carbon monoxide, high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) of the lungs and many other aspects and found, that vaping had no negative health effects, it actually shown results to be identical to these of the non smokers, non vapers from the control group.
The results show no significant changes in lung function or structural abnormalities caused by daily exposure to electronic cigarettes. No changes in average heart rate or blood pressure was found even after 3.5 years of vaping – cigarette smokers show signs of lung damage after two years of smoking.
This is the first study showing long-term effects of vaping on people who have never smoked regular cigarettes and is great news for vapers and even better for cigarette smokers who now know that e-cigarettes are less harmful compared to regular cigarettes and a good way of smoking cessation despite the previous biased news stories.

We have received a very unsettling e-mail from one of our customers who has apparently bought PureNic 99+ nicotine from a man posing as a distributor of Chemnovatic products in Russia. Not only was the product they received of very low quality, but it didn’t contain any nicotine. Obviously it was not a genuine Chemnovatic PureNic 99+ nicotine, but a counterfeit product. read more »
