Before we get to this article we would like to point out that although very much primarily we are all about heat not burn technology we will occasionally cross over into the world of vaping because there are quite a few similarities between the two.
Last month saw two very different studies, from the same field of research, reach completely opposite conclusions in relation to vaping. I’ll give you 30 seconds to guess which one of these two studies saw the widest possible media coverage:
Short-term e-cigarette vapour exposure causes vascular oxidative stress and dysfunction: evidence for a close connection to brain damage and a key role of the phagocytic NADPH oxidase
Cardiovascular Effects of Switching From Tobacco Cigarettes to Electronic Cigarettes
Earlier this year, the Master Chief got his grubby mitts on a heat-not-burn hybrid device, the Lil Hybrid. While he was impressed by the idea, the execution however, wasn’t all that great. It was, as he said, adequate for anyone thinking of making the switch. We’re all about innovation, and it is good to see how different manufacturers are approaching this sector of the market. The next company to step up with a different take on heat-not-burn is British American Tobacco – BAT – with their glo sens device.
Even before the whole VAPI (Vaping Associated Pulmonary Injury) debacle in the US, briefly covered here, former FDA commissioner was not happy with pod mods. JUUL in particular. On several occasions over the course 2018, Mr Gottlieb was insistent that JUUL alone was the cause of, what he called, an “epidemic” of youth use of e-cigarettes.
