Vaping Just Tested Positive +

Posted by philip patenotte on


For years the vaping world has suffered bias.  Many who hate smoking also hate vaping, with no just cause. There are those who never smoked or don't smoke anymore who see all exhaled clouds as the same beast.

Some of it is created by headline-needy journalists, under pressure to compete with rivals, or being too lazy to look at all the facts and write an objective story. Others simply are and will always be haters.

But the tide is turning.  Or if not a full-blown tide then at least there's some significant waves.

Last week Cancer Research published its findings from a 6-month study into the risks of vapes And their headline was this...


E-Cigarettes Safer Than Smoking Says Long Term Study

“Cancer Research UK-funded scientists found that found that people who swapped smoking regular cigarettes for e-cigarettes or nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) for at least six months, had much lower levels of toxic and cancer causing substances in their body than people who continued to use conventional cigarettes.

For the first time, researchers analysed the saliva and urine of long-term e-cigarette and NRT users, as well as smokers, and compared body-level exposure to key chemicals.”

Advocacy has always been a problem for vaping.  The UK has a pretty progressive approach to vaping, but not so much so in the US – vote insecure politicians and other interested parties, driven by simpler reasons, have demonised vaping in the US to the point where it seems it's almost better for your health to be a smoker.

But the Cancer Research study was widely reported in the press (if you looked hard enough) on both sides of the Atlantic.  A household name charity study is just too much to ignore.

And part of the problem is that study after study after study has been conducted.

It has led to a daily barrage of sensationalist headlines and with so many studies it's tiring to sort the wheat from the chaff. Most had a negative slant and were based on very small numbers of people. 

The worst ones were the anecdotal studies: 

“If I asked people what they wanted, they'd have said faster horses”, goes the phrase falsely attributed to car maker Henry Ford. The point being that people can't accurately know what they will want until they act on it.

But before Cancer Research's study was published (in the Annals of Internal Medicine) some media had already begun to question the constant abuse of vaping.

Stop the junk science on vaping. E-cigarettes don’t turn kids into smokers

Spectator Health, Feb 8, 2017


It's advocacy of a sort.  And persistence beats resistance as the saying goes - you can't put a good thing down.

Modern vaping is a fledgling that had, until more recently, been ignored and it's being proven more and more often that in the battle between smoking and vaping, the latter is the least harmful.  Of course the important phrase here is 'least harmful', because no one's claiming vaping is a miracle in cig-a-like form.

And it being the least harmful is the key issue for the millions of people that advertisers were allowed to get hooked on cigarettes in the first place. Smokers are turning to vaping as a means to improve their lives and their health, not to upset anyone or get kids hooked. It's intensely personal.

Vaping is 95% safer than smoking. Public Health England said that last year.  And that's why people switch.  And that's why vaping is enduring, despite legislation and studies and headlines across the world trying to beat it down.

Enough of the junk science and fake news. Necessity is the mother of invention, and vaping was invented from the need of one smoker to improve his health. It caught on.

It's not really about vaping or about smoking, it's about a person striving to improve.

The evil the politicians are claiming they hate is smoking. They chant 'we don't want vaping because it turns kids into smokers'.  But if vaping all but eradicates smoking it won't.

  • Content marketing is extremely important for increasing your website traffic as well as your SEO rankings. Right now, the major search engines are looking at how long visitors are spending on your site to decide how to rank your site.

    It is extremely important to have QUALITY blog posts that are interesting to read and add value to your site. As my experience has shown, poor quality spun articles will get you nowhere.

    I have been involved in the vape market for the past 7 years and know pretty much everything about it, including all the major vape companies, e-juice brands, vape mods, nicotine salts, vape laws and more.

    With this service, I will write up articles for your blog. I recommend that you keep your article titles relatively broad instead of focusing too much on individual products. Each piece will be conversational, well-researched and fun to read.

    Simply send me your article titles and leave everything else to me.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    I need more than 10 articles.

    You can order multiple packages or I could send you a custom offer, whichever works best for you.

    What makes you a good writer?

    My knowledge of the vape industry is what gives me an unparalleled advantage over other writers who have no experience in this field. Instead of writing the bare basics about the vape market, I can also write very critical and in-depth pieces.

    Can you help me to come up with the topics?

    Absolutely. Just send me your site and tell me a bit more about your business and I will put together some prospective titles.

    How do I choose my blog titles?

    I would recommend that you do not choose very broad article titles such as what is vaping because it will be very difficult to rank this article on the search engines due to the high keyword competition. Try to stick to more specialised titles such as nicotine salts guide.

    Why is content important for my blog?

    Each piece of content or each article translates into more visitors. More quality content equals to more visitors.
