Well worth a watch.
Michael Mosley investigates the dramatic rise in e-cigarettes. They’re everywhere these days, but what does the latest scientific research on them reveal? Michael reveals what e-cigarettes are really doing to your health. Are they really better for you than cigarettes? What is actually in them? Is passive vapour harmful? And can they really stop you from smoking? Michael meets some of the scientists around the world studying them, asks a group of volunteers to try to give up smoking regular cigarettes using them, and even takes up ‘vaping’ himself, smoking an e-cigarette every day for a month to see the effects on his own health - no easy task for such a committed non-smoker.
Got any way for a dummy to use a proxy server over in the UK so I can watch this? I promise I’ll buy some stuff on my next visit to compensate your citizens, LOL.
I’ll setup a proxy on a uk server in the morning if the documentary doesn’t make its way on to video sharing sites by then
It was pretty good, mostly positive. There was some sketchy negatives on flavorings, that has been proven inconclusive at best in the past. You just know the anti brigade will focus in on any negatives only either way. I believe it’s up on youtube now.
Thanks. Updated the post with the youtube link
Was on the phone first, at the lappy now, was going to throw the link in
Thank you so much for the youTube link.
I wanted to watch this last night, but I don’t get BBC Two.
Great Video it just proves that the FDA has their heads up their asses
Great video. Even the parts that do not necessarily support “the cause” are of little concern. And even though this group was small and the time short, there is actual science involved which runs contrary to the scare tactics where the motto seems to be “don’t worry over facts, just shiver at our warnings.” Thanks for the share!
I thought the video was pretty good, the major things that I didn’t like were the constant display of cloud chasing as what may lead some to think is a standard for all vapors. i.e. if the “smoke chamber” study didn’t use cloud chasers in the event, how would the levels in the chamber appeared? All in all I did think it was a good video.
Ya, Roger & Ebert…Two Thumbs Up !
It’s only whenever I see a world map like that I’m reminded how teensy weensy Ireland is Aw, look at us there, in the middle of it all, like a little dimple
Smoking is definitely a menace. But many other remedies over it like E-cigarettes is really a miracle.
Here is the full episode for you guys to watch that are not in the uk http://vodlocker.com/qgzpcy9nn9or
Yeah, makes me think of this thing I saw today.
It’s a Samatha Bee “comedy news” story ostensibly about Big Tobacco vs. Little Vape, but spends most of it’s time making fun of a cloud convention.
You know the scary part about all this is the information i have come up with the government really believes that the only people that vape are what they would consider undereducated poor people and I quote
But for those of us that been around vaping for a little while know better you’ll find e-cigarettes from Yale to jail and everywhere in between from attorneys offices the ditches I believe it’s about time we start painting a little bit different picture for them to see the truth
Why not make fun of the cloud convention? It’s the kind of thing that paints itself with a huge bullseye for critics, comics or really anyone who likes to crack jokes. Because let’s face it, a cloud convention or competition is little more than a gathering of (mostly dudes) showing up to a stick measuring event. What you see there has nothing to do with quitting smoking or a healthier lifestyle, so no sense trying to paint it with that brush. It’s Comicon and a flea market in one.

Not everyone wants to quit nor are vaping to be healthier. Sadly the moral majority killed all the fun of being a sailor also, in the old Navy we at least was able to let our hair down (and in those days I did have hair), every so often if we ever pulled into a port. If you made it back to the ship you were okay, even 30 years ago it had changed so bad that you’d be written up if it appeared you were having a hard time going up the gang plank. Cars are made to be driven, for transportation, lets point fingers and make noises about NASCAR or those backroading isn’t that dumb… look how dangerous it is… damn tattooers, look at what they are doing to their bodies! Like a bunch of old women frowning about the young girls in bikinis at a pool… "They shouldn’t be doing that… we’re here to enjoy the peace and quiet…"
I’ll shut up.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame the producers of a comedy show for grasping at the low hanging fruit there. It’s just that it’s bad PR for vapers when folks watching this may not have any idea that these cloud measuring goofs don’t represent most vapers. IMO most vapers are just normal folks who have quit smoking. It’s discouraging to see vaping being misrepresented as just a “growing sector of the douch-conomy”.
