There are many facts about the electronic cigarette that are not known or grossly distorted and these are essential in order for people to know the real impact and the real facts about them.
Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/26/2013 -- It took 53 years for the electronic cigarette to develop from an idea to an estimated $1.7 billion per year industry. But the release of the e cig started in 2004 when it was introduced to the common public and people considered it to be a passing fad. This then resulted in a lack of federal interest until it came to its prominence. According to the TVECA there are an estimated 4 million vapers in the US and this number is estimated to increase more and more. The estimated annual costs of an average starter kit are around $600 and this is far less than the over $1000 for a pack-a day habit, with the average kit starting out at between $30 to $100 depending on the brand name.
In 2011 the FDA was given the right to regulate the electronic cigarette as a tobacco product rather than as a medication delivery system by a federal court. And until now the most impact has been a letter to e cigarette manufacturers to stop making unsubstantiated marketing claims. To date there is not a single electric cigarette that is federally regulated but rather has resorted to self regulation and this has resulted in the formation of groups such as TVECA.
One of the reasons why there is such no regulation is because the rate of innovation in the electronic cigarette industry is so innovative and the whole technology is so new that the authorities have not yet caught up. According to Thomas Glynn, the director of science and trends at the American Cancer Society, there are always risks when inhaling anything other than clean air, but there was a great likelihood that smokeless cigarettes would prove considerably less harmful than traditional smokes, at least in the short term.
Electronic cigarette brands were able to create a device that could emulate the hand-to-mouth ritual of smoking, it has been said e cigarettes might help change a person’s smoking behavior to a potentially less harmful habit and currently there is limited evidence to support this. Last week, the medical journal Lancet found e cigs to be comparable in helping smokers change their smoking habits for the better over a half year time period.
