At the end of this month the FDAQ will be announcing the proposed regulations of e cigs. There have been cautioned on how it should try not to do more harm than good.
Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2013 -- The FDA is expected to announce their proposed e cig regulations by the end of October 2013, and there are fears that those regulations might result in the restriction of information regarding a potentially lifesaving and lifestyle enhancing product. These fears claim that these regulations will end up creating a an increase in the numbers of smoking connected fatalities and casualties all done in the name of public health and consumer protection. A few years back, the FDA sought to get e cigarettes prohibited on the basis of being as unapproved pharmaceutical products. But that was refuted by a federal court judge and also by an appeals court, and then the agency announced that it would instead regulate e cigarettes as tobacco products.
That was commended by the federal courts; they brought up the point that even though the nicotine in e cig is derived from tobacco products, but it is not really proper to call them "tobacco products" as they deliver nicotine in a propylene glycol vapor instead of burning dried organic matter. Also another thing that has been rarely mentioned is that some variants offered by electronic cigarette brands are nicotine free.
These differences are important is for smokers that are considering moving from tobacco smoking to e cig vaping, because they can avoid the over 4000 toxins that are generated as a result of tobacco combustion; this dramatically reduces the health hazards that are posed by tobacco products. Whilst there is comprehensive scientific data on this issue, many vapers claim that their health has now experienced a turn for the better with vapor cigarettes compared to with tobacco smoking.
For instance, the coordinator of the Southern Nevada Health District's tobacco control program Maria Azzarelli stated that "no one can say right now whether e-cigarettes are a healthier alternative to cigarettes." This has been refuted by the numerous claims from vapers that ask if inhaling vapor containing flavored nicotine, and propylene glycol, is a better option to tobacco smoking? In fact propylene glycol has been approved by the FDA as an ingredient in food and medicine. And even the CDC, conceded that "e-cigarettes appear to have far fewer of the toxins found in smoke compared to traditional cigarettes." This was supported by Boston University public health professor Michael Siegel, who noted that "we actually have a much better idea what is in the best e cig vapor than what is in tobacco smoke."
