Special thanks to our customers during this time for being on this journey with us. This year is going to be huge for the company and we hope you can continue supporting us at our original vape store." Andy Logan, Co-founder & CEO of Vape Emporium

    E-Cigarettes Less Harmful Than Smoking!
    This week we saw some positive vape news make the headlines in the news media with the recent study funded by Cancer Research UK showing that E-Cigarettes are up to 97% less harmful than smoking cigarettes. Watch the short video clip from Good Morning Britain for a round-up below

    For further information you can read this blog post by Cancer Research UK.

    The study had also persuaded the Daily Mail to make a retraction on an article they published in January 2017 titled 'E-Cigarettes are more harmful than Smoking' which had only confused the public more on the safety and reliability of using e-cigarettes has a smoking cessation. If you would rather not click the link to the Daily Mail article you can read the retraction statement below:

    Daily Mail Retraction: A Health article on January 27 said some experts believe electronic cigarettes can be more harmful than real ones. In fact we are not aware of any experts who hold this view compared to the risks of cancer, heart disease and lung damage from real cigarettes. We apologise for any contrary suggestion.

     

    Stop the junk science on vaping. E-cigarettes don’t turn kids into smokers
    "Ever since e-cigarettes became mainstream consumer products circa 2012, there has been a steady flow of anti-vaping scare stories. In the last 12 months, it has become a flood. The stories nearly always emerge from the US, usually from California, and focus to three claims: that e-cigarettes are as dangerous as smoking, that they don’t help people quit and that non-smokers who use them are more likely to start using tobacco cigarettes."

    Will e-cig users quit for good, or revert to smoking?
    This is the query that a recent study funded by Cancer Research UK is aiming to resolve, by studying the correlation between e-cigarette users and permanent smoking cessation success rates.

    Independent Vape Industry Criticises New Advertising Restrictions

    "Responding to the Committee of Advertising Practice’s (CAP) new code and guidance for the advertising of vape products, the Independent British Vape Trade Association (IBVTA) has criticised new marketing prohibitions they believe will impose unnecessary restrictions on their members’ legitimate business activities, and make it harder for smokers to find out about products that are at least 95 per cent less harmful than the tobacco they currently smoke."

    Vape Research – Nicotine delivery
    "A team, including Peter Hajek, from the Health and Lifestyle Research Unit at the Queen Mary University of London, has produced a paper documenting their examination of the efficiency of vaping devices to deliver nicotine. Despite anti-vape campaigners complaining about nicotine levels in eliquid, the research confirms that vape devices are far less efficient than traditional tobacco cigarettes."

    Shoutout to all ‘trying-to-quit’ smokers, E-cigarettes are NOT harmless!
    In a study published in JAMA Cardiology, there are growing evidence that electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) are not harmless.

    Belize to ban vaping?
    "In an interview to 7News, a local radio, the Director of the National Drug Abuse Control Council Belize (NADCC) was invited to talk about the draft of a tobacco control act. The odds are not good to have the e-cigarette considered as a solution to the deadly habit."

Whilst most Vapers feel no adverse effects to vaping juice containing PG, it's a great guide to help you enjoy your vaping experience even more.

    Barbados strengthen the law on Ecigs
    "Last week, Barbados, a tropical Island in the Caribbean strengthened tobacco laws to ban sales of vaping products to minors and to prohibit smoking and vaping in public places. A step towards a Nanny State policy?"

    How We Know Vaping Opponents are Driven by Ideology and Not Science
    'I have presented many examples on this blog over the past months demonstrating the fact that vaping opponents are being driven by ideology rather than science. But there is one observation I made which is dispositive. In legal terminology, dispositive means "evidence that unqualifiedly brings a conclusion to a legal controversy." This observation brings a conclusion to any controversy about whether the position and actions of vaping opponents have been science-based or ideology-based.'

    In response to S.A.’s government statements about e-cigs
    "Last Wednesday, four health experts met at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Johannesburg to discuss the current vaping situation in South Africa."

    The War against Vaping and E-cigarettes
    The E-Cig industry is fighting back against new government rules that they say hurts their quickly growing industry. Many customers say vaping has helped them stop the more dangerous cigarette smoking. So why are government agencies and others so against vaping? David Nazar has an exclusive interview with the man in charge of tobacco products at the FDA, and we talk to people who enjoy vaping.

     

    Iran: A vain effort to review scientific literature on Ecigs

    An academic from University College London (UCL) claims that a study carried out by a Masters research student shows that some flavours have a massive impact on the health of sperm cells.

    It’s been great, mech mods, but it’s time to say goodbye
    Fergus Mason calls for the end of Mechanical Mods in his latest blog post inspired by the media frenzy over another "e-cig explosion" this week. Mr Mason makes some valid points in this blog post and especially his comments on the Vaper who lost several teeth to his exploding hybrid mech mod. However, we believe Vapers should still have the choice of using unregulated or regulated devices. We always stress that Mechanical Mods can be dangerous through misuse and we are happy to inform customers on a face-to-face value in our London vape stores.

    One man's misfortune - a lesson for all of us.
    NNA Trustee Dave Dorn also expresses his concerns over the use of Mechanical Mods given the recent news story (see the post above).

    US politicians continue to disappoint, but French doctors investigate e-cigs for asthma treatment
    "Anti-vaping disinformation continues to spread in the USA with the release of a heavily biased advisory message in Tennessee, and an FDA announcement that suggests the agency is doubling down on its hostile attitude to the industry. New Zealand also saw controversy as an academic issued cryptic warnings about a tobacco product despite not even knowing what it was – a mystery that’s now been solved. On a brighter note, a team of French scientists have discovered that e-cigs could be the answer to a long-running problem in treating serious lung diseases."

Australian federal and state governments are also developing legislation that will have life-or-death implications for hundreds of thousands of smokers."
