Smokeless Cigarettes Can Beat The Smoking Gene That Forces Some People To Smoke More Than Others

(PRWEB) May 23, 2012

As reported by WebMD, ?A smoking gene may play a role in how many cigarettes certain smokers puff each day.?

Researchers from 50 medical institutions across the country analyzed genetic material of more than 32,000 African-American smokers and non-smokers to see if certain genes predicted when they began smoking, how many cigarettes they smoked, and how easily they were able to quit.

According to the new study, a variant in a nicotine receptor gene predicts about one extra cigarette smoked per day. This same general location has been implicated in smoking behavior among white Europeans. Among African-Americans, the new genetic marker appears on a different spot on the same gene.

While people can?t change their genetics, they can still smoke safer.

Smokeless cigarettes also know as electronic cigarettes have recently gained lots of popularity.

E cigarette is a battery run device that gives a smoker inhaled doses of tobacco flavored nicotine by delivering a vaporized liquid nicotine solution to the lungs. Once the body absorbs the nicotine, users exhale a harmless water vapor that appears as smoke. This allows using ?smokeless cigarettes? almost anywhere without creating harmful secondhand smoke.

Many long time smokers have used this device to quit smoking almost overnight.

A veteran smoker and e cigarette user Jenny Jenkins from Houston says: ?I smoked a pack of cigarettes every day for 20 years but after my electronic cigarette kit arrived, I found myself down to half a pack on my first day. I just took out my e cig whenever I felt an urge to smoke and draw a few puffs. I had no more cravings for the regular tobacco cigarette. I now have more energy and less fatigue at the end of the day.?

Jenkins continues: ?On my third day I was down to three cigarettes a day and after two weeks I smoked my last cigarette. I simply didn?t need nor want them anymore.?

Innokin Discloses New Scientific Research on Passive Smoking

(PRWEB) March 17, 2012

In order to help smokers get a clearer concept of passive smoking, electronic cigarette manufacturer Innokin spent much time finding related scientific research documents. According to the new study by Siegel and Cohn, there are more than 10,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, including over 40 known carcinogens.

With respect to smokers, there is substantial and compelling scientific research documenting that consuming the ingredients in e-cigarettes (nicotine, propylene glycol, water and flavors) is vastly safer than burning tobacco and inhaling 3000+ toxic by-products. Claiming that e-cigarettes are dangerous for non-smokers is about as credible as claiming that air travel is dangerous for people who never set foot in an airplane.

And here?s what Professor Carl Phillips had to say about the subject in his paper named Nicotine Content in Exhaled Electronic Cigarette Vapor: “Nicotine is thought to be no more dangerous than coffee. While nicotine is addictive, it?s not responsible for 99% of the harm of smoking.”

Scientists believe that nicotine carries around the same risk profile as a cup of coffee. But this does not really matter, because non-smokers absorb just as much nicotine from vegetables as they do from second-hand tobacco smoke:

Using limited data on nicotine content of foodstuffs (tea, tomato, potato, green pepper, and eggplant) and the 198991 Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSDII), the absorbed dose of nicotine is shown to be significant compared to present day environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) nicotine exposures.

Therefore, Innokin encourages all smokers to try e cigarette. For those smokers who haven?t tried ecig yet, there are inexpensive disposable e cigarette brands on the market. Innokin also prepares many new e cigarette brands for new e-smokers, including such popular brands as Innokin LEO Pro, Innokin LEA Kross, Innokin LEA 800 and Innokin 510 T , cartomizer 2 piece electronic cigarette brands such as Innokin Noble, 510 Classic ,808D, and variable voltage e cigarette Innokin Infinity.





Electra Zebra E-Cig Leads the Herd for No Smoking Day (14th March 2012)

(PRWEB UK) 9 March 2012

http://www.electriczebra.com

Electric Zebra electronic cigarette looks nothing like a cigarette ? so smokers can use it anywhere to help them cut down. Most e-cigs look exactly like a normal cigarette, so even though there is no risk to others from passive smoking, no tar, and none of the carcinogens found in traditional cigarettes, people get asked to take their e-cig outside of pubs, clubs and restaurants. With its distinctive black and white stripes and green LED light, there is no mistaking a Zebra ? so you can take it anywhere.

The Electric Zebra e-cigarette gives smokers the sensation of smoking, but it’s designed so it cannot be mistaken for a traditional cigarette. The unique look makes it easier for people to use the smoke-free electronic cigarette in public – without others believing they are smoking.

A recent survey by Electric Zebra found that smoking is one of our top five life regrets with 64% of the 2,000 people asked saying they wished they had never started. In light of the shocking report this week looking at our relationship with tobacco and smoking, coupled with the fact that over six million people have died as a result of smoking, tobacco still has a powerful hold over millions of lives and is a habit that many of us regret ever taking up.

E-cigarettes are proving very successful here for smokers wishing to try and break the tobacco habit and they have gained support from the Royal College of Physicians who state:

?As any smoker will attest, current available Nicotine replacement therapy products are no substitute for a cigarette, and if we are to make progress in encouraging smokers to use medical nicotine as a substitute and/or cessation aid, we need products that mimic much more closely the dose and rate of nicotine delivery that cigarettes achieve. None of the current NRT products come close to achieving this.?

?The major producers of the NRT currently available have failed to deliver this product development in the thirty years or so since NRT first came to market.?

Dr Sarah Brewer, who has extensive experience as a GP running Smoking Cessation clinics and is medical adviser to Electric Zebra, says:

?Obviously the best option, in an ideal world, is for smokers to quit. But we live in the real world where, unlike zebras, everything is not black and white. I believe that electronic cigarettes offer an acceptable shade of grey. There is no risk to others from passive smoking from electronic cigarettes, so electronic cigarettes offer a significant health advantage for both smokers and non-smokers alike.

?As well as being safer for committed long-term smokers, electronic cigarettes are an ideal choice for those who want to cut down, as they mimic the hand gestures and rituals of smoking. And when withdrawal cravings kick in, you only need one or two puffs to obtain your nicotine replacement rather than smoking a whole cigarette.

?Unfortunately, many users find it difficult to use in public because many electronic cigarettes closely resemble traditional cigarettes,” adds Dr Brewer. “Even though they emit a harmless vapour, rather than smoke, people are often asked to move outside or put them out.?

As medical and political support for e-cigarettes grows, Dr Sarah Brewer says that electric cigarettes offer significant advantages to smokers and non-smokers alike.

A report published in early 2011 by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, stated nearly one-third (31%) of those who tried e-cigarettes reported that they quit smoking cigarettes within six months of use. As a quitting mechanism, electronic cigarettes have fared better than other methods like nicotine gums and nicotine patches, which had a success rate below 20%. This evidence strongly suggests how effective electronic cigarettes can be in tobacco cigarette cessation.

The UK Government?s Behavioural Insight Team recently noted in their 2011 annual update: ?Products that deliver nicotine quickly, in a fine vapour instead of as harmful smoke, could prove an effective substitute for conventional smoking. If more alternative and safe nicotine products can be developed which are attractive enough to substitute people away from traditional cigarettes, they could have the potential to save tens of thousands of lives a year.?

Every year, more than 100,000 people in the UK die as a result of smoking?related illnesses. While many try to reduce their smoking with nicotine gums and patches, these do not solve the problem of what to do with your hands ? an essential part of the smoking experience. The Electric Zebra overcomes this problem. You can really take a Zebra almost anywhere.

Notes to Editors

Electronic cigarettes are completely legal in Europe. They do not burn tobacco, produce smoke nor do they put others at risk of passive smoking. It is estimated that over 1 million Americans have converted to e-cigarettes.

Nicolites Praises Recent Welsh Move To Ban Smoking In Cars With Children

(PRWEB UK) 7 February 2012

Nicolites has praised the Welsh government?s decision to launch a shock advertising campaign yesterday, which highlights the dangers of passive smoking. The campaign is aimed at discouraging parents and guardians from smoking while children are travelling with them in a vehicle and is anticipated to precede a complete ban on the act within the next three years.

The company, which has fast become one of the UK?s most recognisable retailers of e cigarette starter kits, disposables and accessories, believes that the ads will begin to make adults think twice about exposing young ones to second-hand smoke, and in turn hopes that such individuals will begin to explore the benefits of smoke-free products.

Nikhil Nathwani, Managing Director at Nicolites, explains.

?Because electronic cigarettes feel so much like the real thing, many of our customers manage to use them as a direct substitution to traditional cigarettes,? Nikhil states. ?We think it?s important that there are a number of alternatives available for those who really do want to change their lives for the better, especially when they?re becoming exposed to quite aggressive anti-smoking campaigns.?

Birju Pujara, who is the Sales Director at the e cigarette company, has this to add:

?Nicolites electric cigarettes don?t emit any harmful chemicals, therefore there?s no chance of passive smoking, so we?d like to think they?re the safer alternative for both drivers and passengers. This is proven in the uptake of our products in forecourts and service stations across the country.?

Nicolites is now the leading and most widely available brand of electric cigarette in the UK; they have formed business partnerships with many of the largest retailers to bring these wonderful innovations right on to the doorstep of every person in the country. Established in late 2007, Nicolites has grown into a multi-million pound company with international distribution networks and continues to grow at a phenomenal rate.

Northbrook, Illinois (PRWEB) October 21, 2011

Leading electronic cigarette manufacturer V4L announces the November 1st grand opening of its V4L Smokeless Lounge, Chicagoland?s first dedicated ?vaping? facility for e-cigarette users. Unlike traditional tobacco cigarettes that burn and release smoke, e-cigarettes use a battery-operated device to heat a flavored liquid solution that may contain nicotine and creates a mostly water-based vapor users inhale to simulate the sensation of smoking.

Located at 4100 Commercial Ave., Northbrook, IL, the V4L Smokeless Lounge will offer patrons a welcoming, ?vaping? environment as well as V4L?s first brick-and-mortar retail store carrying the company?s complete e-cigarette product line. Dedicated and experienced staff will assist interested patrons with product information, vaping instructions and samples of any e-cigarette product in a customer-friendly atmosphere. The V4L Smokeless Lounge is open to the public for ages 18 or older, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Retail customers are afforded the unique opportunity to try any product from a variety of battery options to an array of flavored cartomizers and customizable accessories before they buy to ensure their preferred product choice and ultimate satisfaction.

Crafted to resemble the traditional tobacco variety, e-cigarettes are composed of a rechargeable battery source, and an atomizer coil in a refillable liquid cartridge. When air is drawn into the e-cigarette, the liquid is vaporized and the user blows out what looks like smoke, but is actually vapor. The liquids come in a variety of flavors from tobacco and menthol to chocolate and fruit. To satisfy consumer preferences, they also may contain nicotine at varying strength levels or none at all. In addition, e-cigarettes offer appealing and intriguing customized selections, with options for every budget. They are available in a myriad of colors and sizes with tips that can light up in a choice of colors as well.

?Launching the V4L Smokeless Lounge is the newest way we?re lifting the cloud of mystery around e-cigarettes,? said Milin. ?We?re thrilled to offer a place like no other where customers can come in and relax, interact with us and each other, and just enjoy vaping.

Captain Phil Harris’ Son Josh of the Deadliest Catch, Joins inLife llc and is Embarking on his National Stop Smoking Campaign

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2010

Josh Harris wants to follow in his Father?s footsteps, but not when it comes to smoking. Sadly, Josh?s father, Captain Phil Harris, passed away from complications due to a stroke he suffered on January 29, 2010 while their fishing boat, The Cornelia Marie, was in port off-loading. He was 53. It is sad to know that it was Phil’s use of cigarettes that contributed 100% to his stroke according to the doctors at the hospital in Alaska that treated Phil and reported by his own family physician. Josh and Jake Harris have most recently been on Discovery Channels ?After The Catch? (Discovery Channels highest rated show with over 5.5 million viewers) to discuss their Dads life and untimely passing. Both Josh and Jake used their inLife Electronic Cigarette on-air, during the show.

Josh was introduced to the electronic cigarette in the fall of 2009 while on the Cornelia Marie. In an interview at inLife?s corporate headquarters in Irvine Ca., Josh stated ?My Father passed away directly from smoking 3 packs of cigarettes a day for 40 years. In that time he smoked over 900,000 cigarettes. I was looking for an alternative to the smoking of tobacco and was introduced to the inLife Electronic Cigarette. They have an electronic cigarette that is amazing in its design and performance as I looked at the entire e-cig market and saw a lot of inferior products?. Josh now wants to get the word about how smoking tobacco ended his Father?s life. Said Josh ?Our Dad?s death has really opened my brother?s and my eyes about wellness. I don’t want anybody to have to go through the terrible time our family just went through. It’s the most horrible thing ever.? Josh is now embarking on his national ?GOTeNICOTINE.com Stop Smoking Campaign?.

Josh Harris believes that the electronic cigarette is breakthrough technology that may help millions of Americans. Journalists that do have a sincere interest in learning how the e-cig is changing lives will find the discussion with Josh about his experiences very intriguing reading as there are many, many U.S. citizens involved and effected by smoking and now the electronic cigarette.

Electronic Cigarettes — The Best Smoking Alternative?

Beverly Hills, CA (Vocus) October 8, 2010

Although still relatively unheard of, the user base of a device called the ?electronic cigarette? is growing at a rapid rate. A simple Google search for the term ?electronic cigarette? yields over 5.3 million results which is an impressive number given that these devices have only been available for 3 years.

The owner of BOLD Electronic Cigarettes, a well-established online retailer had this to say about the new age devices, ?We offer a safe and cost effective alternative to smoking that is saving our customers thousands of dollars annually and is taking away the 4000+ harmful chemicals in a traditional tobacco cigarette”.

So how does it work? Most electronic cigarettes are comprised of three parts: a rechargeable battery, an atomizer and a replaceable nicotine cartridge.

Smokers are turning to E-Lites technology as No Smoking Day dawns

(PRWeb UK) March 8, 2011

E-Lites.co.uk, the UK-based maker of the most sophisticated electronic cigarettes on the market, says that rather than going without, smokers can enjoy an alternative option, known as ?vaping? or ?E-Liting?, which is healthier than conventional cigarettes, more convenient, cheaper to buy and unrestricted in public places.

The company?s innovative products, based on extensive research and development, produce a neutral vapour, which eliminates the nasty cigarette smell that so many find unpleasant.

The benefits of these premium electronic cigarette kits are winning increasing numbers of fans, according to E-Lites co-founder Adrian Everett. ?The advantages of E-Lites are too great for a lot of smokers to ignore and we?re experiencing unprecedented levels of demand,? he said. ?No Smoking Day is a very good opportunity to try out the best available alternatives to conventional smoking, so we?re urging smokers to put E-Lites to the test.?

Celebrities certainly haven?t been slow to take up the ?vaping? trend. Among the stars spotted with electronic cigarettes have been Katherine Heigl, Johnny Depp, Avril Lavigne and Leonardo DiCaprio.

E-Lites contain a pure liquid form of nicotine that, when someone inhales from the device, is drawn into an atomising chamber, heated and turned into a vapour. This delivers a measured amount of nicotine to smoothly and pleasantly satisfy the user. Although they are used very much like a cigarette, E-Lites contain no tobacco, tar, carcinogens or harmful chemicals.

The device comprises a replaceable cartridge, which delivers the nicotine equivalent of up to 15 cigarettes, an atomiser and a rechargeable battery, which lasts for the equivalent of 15 to 20 cigarettes before needing to be recharged.

For more information about E-Lites electronic cigarettes, please visit http://www.e-lites.co.uk.
