I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon

The Exit Door Leads In – Lorien Jollye

So what could have driven me to get off my rear and put finger to key? Well, me. I thought it was time to say something about what it is like to be an advocate. An unpaid e-cig advocate. A volunteer that probably doesn’t know when to stop and even if she did, wouldn’t…..

E-cigarette vapour from two different types of e-cigarette has no cytotoxic impact on human airway tissue, according to new research published….

It covers a range of public health issues, including: action to reduce the harm to people’ health caused by smoking; banning the use of e-cigarettes in enclosed places; and introducing an age restriction on intimate body piercings…

Greek financial crisis seen as likely to lead to e-cig tax

Freddie Dawson – ECig Intelligence

The Greek financial crisis is likely to lead to a new tax for the e-cigarette industry. The rapidly-growing sector will be targeted to provide desperately-needed revenue for the Greek government, according to a recent report from ECigIntelligence.
