What is in an Electronic Cigarette?

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012




Over the years, the most frequent question I find myself answering is, “What is in an E Cigarette?”  E Cig users want to know how an electronic cigarette works, where they are made, and if they are a safe alternative.  I also consistently meet e cigarette users who have no idea about the safety of their electronic cigarette.  This concerns me.  Would you buy a car without seeing a safety report, a service report, or talking to a current “knowledgable” owner?  I want to address the facts about manufacturing, fluid composition, and ethical business and marketing practices.  These are facts that the electronic cigarette industry doesn’t want you to know.

Most people familiar with the e cig industry have heard of FDA tests that have found contaminants in some electronic cigarettes, or that there have been reports of electronic cigarettes exploding during use.  The latter instances have resulted in serious harm to the users.  But what most of the public doesn’t know is how frequently these issues arise and how serious of a concern these problems truly are.

The manufacturing of an electronic cigarette is the most crucial stage of its creation.  However, there are few companies who are  willing to invest time and money in order to ensure a high standard.  Most e cigarette companies are concerned only with increased profit margins, resulting in poor quality control.  A reduced quality of manufacturing will lead to an increased possibility of harm to the user.  Electronic Cigarette companies need to wake up and consumers must be informed.

Green Nicotine Owner to Electronic Cigarette Industry: It’s Time to Put People Before Profits

Monday, February 20th, 2012

TUCSON, AZ — The electronic cigarette industry has again been vaulted into the national spotlight. But this time it is not an intellectual struggle or debate. This time it is a tragedy.

When electronic cigarette company Green Nicotine’s owner, Sean Schoepflin, heard of the recent failure of the industry involving Mr. Holloway and his e-cigarette, he released the following statement.

“My heart goes out to Mr. Holloway. Here is a man that clearly wanted to improve his life and the lives of those he loves. His e-cigarette was not a novelty item, which is evident by the presence of multiple batteries in his study. He had probably tried dozens of other products to help him get off of traditional tobacco and settled on an alternative that looks, tastes and feels like the real thing. He was betrayed by the very product that he hoped would improve his quality of life.

“The electronic cigarette industry has the chance to change the world but it is riddled with products that are clearly made of inferior components and overwhelmed by companies whose only concern is turning a quick profit. The true issue lies at the heart of what is both accepted and encouraged in this industry: putting profits before a moral responsibility to help people. It truly disappoints me that an industry with such awesome potential to change the world has failed and that Mr. Holloway has fallen victim to such blatant betrayal.

“Clearly, our industry lays the ground work for global change. Over 2.5 million smokers have already begun improving their lives by using e-cigarettes as an alternative. But this progress is quickly being destroyed. Corners cannot be cut when it comes to research, development or quality control. This means the cost of running an electronic cigarette company will rise, but this is a product that is consumed, not a pair of sunglasses. Our customers trust that we are providing the industry’s highest quality product. There is absolutely no excuse for poor quality components.

“This kind of shoddy craftsmanship must end now. From quality control to sales practices, there must be self-regulation before there is no longer an e-cig industry. Electronic cigarette companies must stop acting unethically and irresponsibly. How long will it be before a child gets a hold of a bottle of ‘e-juice’ and is rushed to the hospital because of it? Or before our high schools become overrun by new smokers who have been introduced to nicotine because of flavors like strawberry banana or coconut? How long until cheap components cause more harm than good?

“The electronic cigarette industry has a tremendous amount of power. But right now, that power is being used to increase profit margins, not change lives. This industry has had the chance to self-regulate and has failed miserably. Legitimate e-cigarette companies should be begging for outside regulation that protects our consumers. We should be banding together and seeking legal methods to enact real change to ensure that the lessons of Mr. Holloway’s tragedy are not forgotten.

“As for those E-Cigarette companies who put profits before their moral obligation to people: If your thought process does not immediately change direction, rest assured your increasing bank accounts and fantastic profit margins will eventually evaporate. You will drive this industry into extinction. Deceptive marketing practices and shortcuts in research and development will destroy all of the possibilities that lay before us. This industry needs individuals with the highest integrity and corporations with an unshakeable conviction to improve our world.”

Cigarette Smoking Linked to Breast Cancer

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Smoking is a major risk factor for breast cancer among women with a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, according to US researchers in a report published in the April issue of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.

Their study of 132 families with at least three breast or ovarian cancer patients found that patients’ sisters and daughters who smoked were more than twice as likely to develop breast cancer, compared with the nonsmoking sisters and daughters of patients.

In families with the strongest genetic risk–those with at least five members with cancer–smoking was an even more significant risk factor. Patients’ sisters and daughters who smoked at some point in their lives were nearly six times more likely to develop breast cancer than relatives who never smoked.

The researchers explain that smoking boosts carcinogens, or cancer-causing chemicals, in the blood. These chemicals can cause mutations in the DNA of breast cells which, over time, lead to cancer.

The study authors call for further research into the link between cigarette smoking and breast cancer among women with a genetic risk. “If you don’t smoke, don’t start. If you do smoke, it’s never too late to quit,” Sellers said.

Green Nicotine Electronic Cigarettes urge all women smokers to mark this month as the month they put their cigarettes down.  Breast cancer is a horrible thing to deal with and we definitely do not need to do anything to increase our chances of getting it.  Our lives are too precious and our families are worth doing everything in our power to increase our time with them.

SOURCE: Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention 2001;10:327-332.

NOTE: Secondhand smoke has long been associated with a higher risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

My Father’s Fight With Emphysema/C.O.P.D

Saturday, October 1st, 2011


Tucson, AZ – Last night, I received a phone call that has become all too familiar.   My uncle was phoning me to tell me it was happening again.   My father was having another attack and I needed to come and help him.  Immediately.  In his condition, these attacks could easily take his life.  Luckily, after being transported to the ER at Tucson Heart Hospital, he stabilized.  But the bad news is that this will not be the last time that this will happen, as the medical staff has clearly cautioned us.  They also confirmed what we already knew: eventually one of these attacks will take his life.  I feel compelled to share with you the torture that my father goes through and the pain I feel watching it all unfold.  My hope is that my pain and my father’s torture inspires just a few of you to terminate your habit for good by understanding  just how bad circumstances can become.

My father has lived a great life.  He served for over 20 years in our Armed Forces and there are few places in this world that he has not visited.  He loved to travel and was a very active man.   Growing up, I never saw weakness in my father.  Even into his fifties, there were few 20 year olds who could sport a better physique.  But today, he is just over 100 pounds.  Each day, he struggles to draw breath.  He is still stubborn and willing to take on an army of men, but he is physically beaten by years of traditional tobacco use.

Like many of us, my father never realized just how massive of a toll smoking would take on our fragile bodies one day.  In my experience, this realization comes far too late.  The pain, the suffering, the torture…everything we have been warned about…it all becomes so real.  And our families and loved ones have to experience it as we do.

An attack is something no one wants to witness.  As one who has once again had to do so, I am overcome by emotion.  I could not imagine what it is like to personally endure.

The look in my father eyes is fear (although he will never admit it).  It is a look that puts more fear in me than I had ever thought possible.  Had I arrived too late?  Am I going to lose my Dad?  He begins to grasp for his inhaler.  He uses them as directed and nothing happens.  Nothing works.  We give him his oxygen and still nothing.  He cannot breathe no matter how many times we try and anxiety begins to set in.   Using the last of his dwindling breathe, he tells us goodbye.   By now, the ambulance has arrived and he is rushed to the hospital.

We follow.

At the hospital, nothing anyone can do helps.  His dioxide levels rise and his oxygen levels decrease rapidly.   Delirium sets in.  Doctors now approach me and explain to me the dangers of intubation.  I am told that it will stabilize him.  However, they also inform me that the chance of his body being able to work on its own, once the tube is removed, is very unlikely.  It seems there are no other options.  Before the tube is inserted, the doctors strap a mask on my father’s face that forces oxygen into his body.  This is our last resort before intubation.  Miraculously, he stabilized after one hour.  Within a week, he will return home with the promise that he will be back again.  But all of us know that eventually an attack will take his life.

For my father, it is clear that the damage done to his body by smoking cannot be reversed.  He will pass on in a way that no one should have to die.  Learn from this, read of other similar occurrences, and wake up for the sake of you and your family.  Think about it.  If we continue to smoke all these chemicals into our bodies, it will most definitely end in a torturous death.  This is no exaggeration.  We must stop ignoring the pain and suffering of others who have gone through similar circumstances.  Please understand what will happen to you, what does not need to happen to you, and what YOU CAN EASILY PREVENT!  You should spend your last days aging gracefully and YOU CAN!  For yourself, and for those closest to you, please make this pack your last.
