I just read a bull shit article touting the safety and benefits of using electronic cigarettes. Now I am so pissed at idiocy. I am a scientist, how do these media fools think they can fool me?? Firstly, these e-cigarettes dose you with nicotine. Let’s start with that. They tout that nicotine is as harmless as caffeine. This is an out-right lie. Nicotine causes atherosclerosis — hardening of the arteries. This condition is non-reversible. Nicotine can also raise blood pressure to your organs and over time may damage them.
Another fraudulent claim is that there is no second-hand smoke. Poppycock! It may not be smoke but it is a visible vapor that contains nicotine, the users germs, and bad breath, and respiratory vapor i.e. LUNG CRUD. I don’t want to breathe that crap! Do YOU? Here is yet another fraudulent claim: It will help you quit smoking. I really doubt that. The victim (smoker?) is still getting nicotine, is still irritating the lungs, and is still feeding the psychological habit.
If I open another restaurant I will have prominently displayed “NO SMOKING OR ARTIFICIAL SMOKING DEVICES!” I encourage other workplaces to follow suit and protect our workers and patrons.
