Re: “E-Cigarettes vs. Tobacco

I got the 7 seconds from the World Health Organization — looks like (averaging several sites) it's more like 30 seconds (not minutes) for nicotine vapor to affect brain. Thanks for catch!

Re: “E-Cigarettes vs. Tobacco

This youtube video explains the real reason for the CA Dept. of Public Health's attack on e- cigs. Short version: follow the money:

Also, Dr. Michael Siegel is an anti- smoking zealot who supports e cig use as a method of harm reduction. He has a blog:

Re: “E-Cigarettes vs. Tobacco

Mr. Evans, a 25 second Google search, and 5 minutes of reading will provide you with the information conspicuously absent from your attention grabbing opening sentence. Nicotine delivered in vapor takes minutes, not seconds to be detected in the blood.

I do appreciate the relatively even-handed nature of the rest of the article - shame the lead was inaccurate.

I should used "life expectancy" when talking about a baby born today (77 years)
