The Misbegotten Crusade Against E-Cigarettes
Dr. Michael Siegel a professor at the Boston University School of Public Health is lashing out on antivaping movements for their ill-conceived e-cigarette critic. The doctor who has talked to vapers, conducted research and reviewed a number of scientific evidence, says that he is convinced that e-cigarettes have dramatic potential for reducing disease and death caused by smoking.
Yet many in the antismoking movement—in which I have been involved for decades—are conducting a misleading campaign against these products. And this campaign may be doing harm to public health.
Dr. Siegel states. He’s asking people to stop the e-cigarette critic such as claims that they are a “gateway” to smoking that have no factual basis.

Widely Reported Study Showing Dangers of E-Cigs Has One Little Problem…
Two doctors from the Center for Smoking Cessation at Duke University Medical Center have found an anomaly with a recent research study that claimed e-cigarettes generate toxic chemicals similar to those found in tobacco and can cause harm to lungs and the immune system. According to the two doctors, the study was not factual as it subjected the mice used for testing to the equivalent of 11,000 to 13,000 puffs per day.
Assuming 8 hours of sleep per day, in order to acquire such a high number of puffs e-cig users would need to take 11-13 puffs per minute and thus practically take an e-cig puff with each breath.
The two doctors said. The doctors recommend that the results of the study be interpreted with caution and advised for more studies with more realistic levels of e-liquid exposure be conducted.
