Nicotine prediction of e-cigarettes is possible with this new model

Virginia Commonwealth University researchers pooled the information from many e-cigarette companies, the concentration level of the liquid nicotine used in the device and the time duration that a user generally takes each puff. Then the team came up with a mathematical model to decide the quantity of nicotine that is coming out from the devices as the liquid concentration and voltage were increased and the extension of puff duration of the user.


Amid FDA talks, e-cigarette industry braces for change

Davis makes weekly visits to City Vapor and E-Cig in St. Petersburg to sample the latest flavors of liquid nicotine. He vapes partly because of the low cost and partly because of the variety of flavors. But changes are coming to the fast-growing industry. The Food and Drug Administration is considering a slate of new regulations that could put smaller liquid nicotine distributors out of business


City chosen for 'ground-breaking' e-cig study

Leicester has been chosen as a centre for a ground-breaking study on the effectiveness of e-cigarettes in helping people to quit smoking. The study is being conducted by Queen Mary University of London. Three centres have been chosen to take part - Leicester, London and one in East Sussex. A total of 250 people will be enrolled in the study in Leicester.


An ugly process, but worthy bills on tobacco

Six tobacco-related bills were shifted earlier this month from the Legislature’s regular session to the special session on health care called by Gov. Jerry Brown, scheduled to begin Aug. 17. The shift was less a reflection of the bills’ import than a tactical maneuver needed to keep a couple of them alive. Only one of them can be considered a major policy change. Still, all six merit ultimate approval.


Quit smoking, start vaping and save your life

The Electronic-Cigarette Association of SA, which represents importers and manufacturers of e-cigarettes, is urging smokers to switch from lighting-up to "vaping". On Saturday, the association erected a billboard overlooking the N1 highway in Johannesburg with the phrase: "E-Cigarettes Save Lives." The line is from an article in the UK's Spectator magazine by Dr Derek Yach, a former head of tobacco control at the World Health Organisation.


Vapers want e-cigarettes regulated

Malaysia: Users of e-cigarettes want it to be regulated and be made widely available. They say banning e-cigarettes, if it ever comes to that, will not stop them from puffing. In a first-of-its-kind survey of adult smokers in Malaysia, a regional consumer advocacy group found that most smokers surveyed saw e-cigarettes as a “positive alternative” to tobacco products.
