British Authority Comes Down on the Side of E-Cigarettes

As British officials consider whether to extend bans on public smoking to the use of electronic cigarettes, a noted UK authority has cast his lot in favor of ecigs.

Professor John Britton is the head of the tobacco advisory group for the British Royal College of Physicians. And he tells the BBC that “Nicotine itself is not a particularly hazardous drug. It’s something on a par with the effects you get from caffeine.”

Professor Britton goes on to say that, in his view, if all smokers in Great Britain gave up tobacco cigarettes and took up e-cigarettes, it would save five million lives. In his words, the use of e-cigs is “a massive potential public health prize.”

A decision on whether to tighten regulations on the use of electronic cigarettes in Britain is expected within the next month.

The Safe Cig Shut Down?

It appears that one of the original electronic cigarettes on the market, The Safe Cig, is temporarily or permanently shut down. Their website currently redirects to something called “Seminole Cig,” their phone number doesn’t work and their affiliate program has been closed. The only contact we have had with them asked us whether we wanted to continue to list them on our site, but we haven’t heard anything back after responding. We don’t know any more details, but will certainly report on them as we find them.

In response, V2 Cigs has launched a program offering a free Safe Cig to V2 adapter to anyone who buys V2 cartridges, from now through the end of February. This adapter will let Safe Cig customers use V2 carts with their existing Safe Cig batteries. You can get more details on the V2 offer here.

Noted Doctor Recommends Electronic Cigarettes to Patients

Dr. Keith Ablow, a noted psychiatrist and member of the Fox News medical team, has written on the Fox News site about his experiences with electronic cigarettes.  Ablow says he now recommends ecigs to patients who have tried unsuccessfully to quit smoking. And he is calling on other doctors to do the same.

Based on the experiences of his patients, Ablow says he believes that e-cigarettes are a good option for smoking cessation because while they do simulate the act of smoking, they don’t do so in a perfect way, meaning they’re a good substitute for tobacco cigarettes but not “good” enough to become just another addition.

Ablow concedes that there is still controversy about whether ecigs are harmless by themselves, since they do contain nicotine and other substances which could possibly cause illness, even cancer. But he cites claims by makers of the devices that the amounts of those other substances are so small that they would have no real-life effect on the user.

And he restates the “fact” – which has not been reliably disputed by any studies or experts – that using electronic cigarettes is far safer than smoking tobacco ones.

That has led Ablow to call for large-scale, clinical trials on e-cigarettes. And he believes that if the trials show that e-cigs are a viable replacement product, that insurance companies should provide electronic cigarettes to smokers, without cost. His belief is that supplying the devices would be a lot less expensive for insurers, than paying to treat cancer and heart disease contracted as a result of smoking.
