British Study Shows Even Temporary Switch to E-Cigarettes Beneficial

multi-coloured smoke

A recent British study published by Cancer Prevention Research showed that tobacco cigarette smokers who switched to smoke-free e-cigarettes – even for a short time – can drastically decrease the number of pollutants (acrolein and carbon monoxide, specifically) they are exposed to.

The study focused on 40 tobacco cigarette smokers who had shown interest in quitting at least twice. As a part of the study, each participant was given the same type of e-cigarette and everyone was encouraged to quit their tobacco cigarettes.

After four weeks, the participants were reassessed. At this mark, only 16 of the participants were solely using e-cigarettes. In these participants, though, doctors saw an 80 percent reduction in their exposure to acrolein and carbon monoxide.

Another 17 participants had incorporated tobacco cigarettes and e-cigarettes into their routine. Even these participants experienced a decline in acrolein exposure by 60 percent and carbon monoxide by 52 percent. These results show that in order to reap the full benefits of reducing exposure to air pollutants, cigarette smokers will need to make the transfer completely; however, tobacco reduction can also be associated with a decrease in air pollutant levels.

Dangers of Carbon Monoxide

Reducing the amount of carbon monoxide you inhale is beneficial because as the amount of carbon monoxide increases, the oxygen in your red blood cells is depleted. This depletion can result in arteries hardening, which is a factor in strokes and heart disease.

Researchers measured carbon monoxide in participants’ breath one week before switching to e-cigarettes, on the day they switched and again four weeks later. Urine tests for acrolein exposure followed the same testing schedule.

Doctors expected the drop in carbon monoxide; however, since acrolein is known to occur with VG e-liquid, the reduction in this chemical as well was a significant finding.

It can be a big decision to decide to make the switch from tobacco to e-cigarettes. If you’re considering switching, consider EverSmoke e-smoking products and supplies. Come check our site to stock up, plus find out even more information via our blog and knowledge center.

Fall, Vaping and Football: A Perfect Combination!

happy male friends at home

It is that time of year that so many look forward to…a cool breeze in the air and football fun!  We think there’s no better way to celebrate than with a group of friends where you can be yourself and enjoy what you love – the game of football and your favorite e-cig vaporizer.

Even if you aren’t a lover of the game of football, you have to admit that being involved in the competitive excitement with friends, while enjoying good eats, drinks and e-liquid flavors, is a blast.   Let’s face the fact that if you are a vaper, you know your enjoyment will be amplified if you are able to delight in your e-cig experience while partaking in some fun.

Enjoying football season as a vaper is a much better experience than as a traditional analog cigarette smoker.  As a former smoker, do you remember having to walk outside to enjoy your cigarette? You would think it was a safe time to cut out for a quick smoke break when all of sudden your friends would erupt with excitement at the play of the year.  You missed it because you had to step away!

When vaping, you don’t bother others with secondhand smoke and nasty fumes.  You can stay right where you are and enjoy your friends, football and vaporizer all at the same time.

If you prefer to go out to watch the game, many sports bars and restaurants allow vaping indoors as opposed to traditional smoking while you are munching on those wings, sipping on a beer and screaming your lungs out for your favorite team.  Also, a number of stadiums allow vaping and if not, they usually offer an area for you to vape without missing out on the game.

Want to get creative about trying new flavors of e-juice and blends while cheering on your favorite team?  The fun is no doubt in the flavor and EverSmoke offers a delicious assortment of 100 percent USA made flavor cartridges.

At Eversmoke, we are here to answer any questions you may have about transitioning to e-cig vaporizers, as well as provide you with top quality vaping devices and e-juice. Contact us if you have any questions, or continue browsing our blog and knowledge center.

4 E- Cig Exaggerations that Keep People Smoking


You all are probably well aware of the controversy that surrounds electronic cigarettes.  Anything that is relatively new and takes away from the tobacco industry is obviously going to be attacked from all ends.  As a result, there are many myths and exaggerations that float around regarding the e-cig health and safety.

Below are four common vaping embellishments that you may hear from people who are traditional smokers.

1. Electronic cigarettes are a fire hazard.

E-cigs do contain a heating element, but unlike cigarettes, there is no combustion process or open flame. Cigarette users are much more likely to start a fire through user careless.  With an e-cig, as long as you buy products that are high quality and act responsibly with the batteries and e-liquid, you shouldn’t have a problem.

2. Electronic cigarettes contain antifreeze.

This may be one of the biggest e-cig exaggerations floating around.  Let’s hope that any company that is reputable in any way would not put anti-freeze in their products.  Propylene glycol, which is used in the liquid of e-cigs, is often found in medications and various foods.  Ethylene glycol is what is found in anti-freeze.  Big difference!

3. Vaping is more addictive than smoking.

This is simply not true.  Both contain nicotine, but with the e-cig you can reduce your nicotine levels at any time.  The vaping hobby may be more addictive in pleasure and flavor, but not due to nicotine. You can have cartridges ranging from 0 milligrams (mg) of nicotine to 18 mg.  It is completely your choice.

4. Vapor from e-cigs is same as smoke from traditional cigarettes.

Wrong!  Cigarette smoke releases carcinogens into the air with every puff.  When a person vapes, the cloudlike fog they release is actually odorless water vapor.

Don’t listen to the exaggerations, myths and lies out there circulating about electronic cigarettes.  If you have questions, EverSmoke is here to provide answers.  Our vaping products are an excellent alternative to traditional smoking with a variety of e-liquid flavors and starter kits that can help you begin the new journey of vaping.

CDC Releases New Lower Numbers on the Percentage of U.S. Smokers

Newly released numbers on the rate of smoking in the United States have been released and many are surprised to find that smoking amongst American adults continues to drop. Currently, only around 15% of adults now say they smoke traditional tobacco cigarettes.

This number is 2% lower than last year and 3% lower than 2013—which is significant considering the U.S. spent a decade trying to curb smoking rates with no success before ramping up its anti-smoking campaign in 2010, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC is contributing the decline to higher taxes on tobacco products, tougher laws against smoking and more stringent anti-smoking campaigns. Director of the CDC’s North Shore-LIJ Health System in New York, Patricia Folan says there have even been instances of long-term heavy smokers quitting in recent years due to bans on indoor smoking.

According to Folan, she hears smokers all the time saying, “When I can’t smoke here, I can’t smoke there, when people see me smoke they look at me like I’m a pariah – it makes me want to not smoke anymore.”

All of these numbers come from the annual National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) which is performed by the CDC. The NHIS began as a way to track health issues in the American public in 1957.

Decreased Smoking Data

Just how much has the smoking rate decreased in recent years? Here are some stats to give you a better picture:

  • Since 1965, the rate of adults smoking has decreased 27%.
  • From 2004-2009, smoking rates didn’t decline and stayed at roughly 20%. Failure to see progress made anti-smoking proponents concerned that this hard-core smoking group could not be reached.
  • 17 percent of males smoke compared to 13 percent of women.
  • The real difference for getting numbers to start dropping again was graphic anti-smoking ads. (Smokers don’t enjoy seeing graphic images of what smoking could do to their bodies.)

According to the director of the American Lung Association’s national policy, Thomas Carr, U.S. smoking rates could drop even further with the pending regulation of other nicotine delivery devices such as smokeless e-cigarettes. Carr states, however, that much more research will have to be conducted first to know just how much of a role these devices could play on the reduction of smoking rates.

If you’re a smoker and no longer enjoy the smoke, ash and chemicals that come along with tobacco cigarettes, consider switching to a smarter smoking alterative. We’re talking, of course, about e-switching to cigarettes!

Why is Everyone Switching E-Smoking?

reasons to switch to vapingIt seems these days that smokers are switching to vaping all the time, and in greater numbers. Here’s a look at why!

  1. Technology: It’s everywhere. Technology has seeped into every nook, cranny, and aspect of our lives, and in many ways, improved it. Digital smoking has enabled smokers to have a more modern, simplified, cleaner way to smoke.

  2. Savings: Everyone wants to save more money, and factoring in how expensive smoking cigarettes is, alternatives are a total necessity. Vaping can save smokers thousands of dollars every year!

  3. Enjoyment: For many, vaping is vastly more enjoyable than smoking, and it becomes as much of a hobby out of enjoyment, as a craving for nicotine.

  4. Freedom: Who doesn’t need more? Freedom from ashtrays, from having to be in specific places to smoke, from feeling like a leper anytime you want to smoke… vaping offers much more ability to simply enjoy the process.

  5. Options: The amount of different options vapers have opposed to smokers is beyond compare. Different devices, ways to charge, accessories, flavors, nicotine levels, liquid ratios; it’s astounding and amazing!

  6. Convenience: Having smoking fit into your lifestyle, instead of having to work around it all the time is major. Convenience is a big part of what e-cigarettes offer!

  7. No smoke = none of the problems of smoke. Smoke is pretty awful, and it leaves behind a foul residue, AKA tar. No one likes secondhand smoke, and once you leave it behind, and get used to the clean essence of vapor, you’ll most likely never look back!

  8. No smell: Cigarette smoke and the lingering funk it leaves behind in its wake are just gross. They are the antithesis to clean, fresh air, and more akin to nasty, musty, and dingy.

  9. No stigma: While some people saunter through life never caring what others think, for those who do care about what others around them think, the stigma of smoking is not comfortable. It’s a reality for smokers that they are often looked down upon, and it’s rather nice to shed this image when one becomes a vaper.

  10. No tobacco: because tobacco is the root of the problem. It is the part of the cigarette that requires burning. It is the part that creates smoke. It is the part that causes the most harm. Without tobacco, cigarettes are rendered useless. Most smokers are thrilled to leave the tobacco behind because they know that it is the worst part of smoking.

Having an alternative option such as vaping has allowed smokers to enjoy what they love about smoking, in a much cleaner, simpler, more enjoyable way, without all of the negatives. Smokers are switching because they are finding their needs met in a better way. Technology is amazing, isn’t it?

Study Shows E-Cigs Produce Formaldehyde Only Under “Extreme Conditions”


Nobody wants to ingest formaldehyde – that bad smelling liquid you may remember from biology class during the lesson on dissection. Well, did you know that every time you smoke a tobacco cigarette, that’s exactly what you’re consuming, along with a whole host of other toxic chemicals?

Gross, right? Well the same argument has been unfairly lodged against electronic cigarettes, but fortunately now we have some data that says otherwise.

A recent study, conducted by cardiologist Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos and reported on by Wired Magazine, has revealed that some electronic cigarettes do indeed release harmful amounts of formaldehyde, but only under extreme conditions.  Formaldehyde could be detected when a vapor smoker repeatedly attempted to “dry puff” – a situation which is rare due to the unpleasant experience a dry hit provides.

These results challenge a 2015 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine that said electronic cigarettes produced a higher amount of formaldehydes than traditional analog cigarettes.  However, in that particular study, vaping habits were never taken into consideration.

In this recent study led by Dr. Farsalinos, he discovered that formaldehydes, which are carcinogenic and found in traditional tobacco cigarettes, can also be released by a third-generation electronic cigarette.  Certain advanced e-cigs offer a variety of power settings that a vapor smoker is able to customize for maximum e-liquid flavor.

However, Dr. Farsalinos explain further that the emission of aldehydes from these e-cigs was dramatically lower than those found in cigarette smoke.

The conclusion of Farsalinos study determined that in “real world” vaping situations, the amount of formaldehyde released from e-cigs is significantly less than from traditional cigarettes unless a person is participating in the rare and nasty act of repeat dry vaping.

Since its publication, the study has made big waves in the health community since now all the media hype about the dangers of formaldehyde in electronic cigarettes may need to be reconsidered.

Are Harvard Researchers Biased Against E-Cigarettes?


If you keep up with the news and research, you may have heard about the Harvard study claiming that one third of all e-cigarette users are nonsmokers. This data, if true, would of course detract from the many supposed benefits of switching to electronic cigarettes.

Well E Cigarette News believes that the conclusion of the Harvard study was unfairly biased against e-cigarettes.  They say the researchers chose to report their findings in a negative way against electronic cigarettes that was not consistent with their own findings.

The statement that E Cigarette News believes is inconsistent is as follows:

“In conclusion, there has been rapid growth in ever and current electronic cigarette use over the past five years, although growth in current use slowed down from 2013 to 2014. Although smokers are most likely to use these products, almost a third of current users are nonsmokers, undermining potential public health benefits of cigarette smokers possibly switching to electronic cigarettes.”

A key finding in the study was that 20.7% of current electronic cigarette users used to be cigarette smokers.  What was important in this study was how they divided the study groups.  The two groups consisted of those who had quit smoking more than six years ago and those who had quit less than six years ago.

E Cigarette News makes the assumption that an individual who had quit smoking more than six years prior to using e-cigarettes would be a “negative outcome” (in the eyes of researchers), meaning they were drawn back to nicotine through electronic cigarettes; whereas those who had quit less than six years ago would represent smokers who had used e-cigs to transition from traditional smoking, which would be considered a positive outcome.

However, the Harvard study started on the assumption that all who began smoking electronic cigarettes were ex-smokers who were drawn back into nicotine use because of e-cigs.  As the study itself shows, only 2.8% were distant smokers and 17.9% were smokers of less than six years.

Could this data not otherwise suggest that almost 18% of these individuals used e-cigs as a smoking alternative to their traditional cigarette habit?  Instead, the conclusion of the study states that all 20.7% of these smokers were enticed back into nicotine due to e-cigarettes.

E-Cigarette News and other industry advocates are concerned that the anti-tobacco groups are using biased studies and research for form new legislation and public opinion.  Their hopes are for people to put aside opinions and examine the real science behind e-cigarettes.

Is it Safe to Vape and Drive?

smoking and driving

One of the most dangerous activities you do on a daily basis is getting behind the wheel of a car.  If this were not the case, you wouldn’t cringe whenever your teen pulls out of the driveway for the first time alone.

For teens and adults alike, driving is a huge responsibility and being distracted even for one moment can have devastating consequences.  Because of the real danger of distracted driving, many states have banned the use of electronic devices, such as smart phones and mp3 players, when operating a vehicle.

However, currently, there are no laws stating that an e-cig is one of the electronic devices that is considered banned.  Whether the e-cig is considered a “handheld electronic device” would be up to each individual state.

Of course, that doesn’t mean high ohm vaping in the car is totally safe.  We all know that texting and driving is a dangerous mix, but what about vaping and driving?

Vaping and Driving Safety Tips

Anything you do while driving that doesn’t involve paying attention to the road can be considered a dangerous distraction.  This includes vaping if not done properly.  If you decide to vape while driving, consider the following safety tips below:

  • Before you vape, have the e-juice filled, battery charged and the electronic device ready.  If any of this needs to be done while you are driving, it is necessary to pull over.

Can E-Cigs Improve My Sex Life?

couple smoking e-cigarette

It has always been interesting to see how smoking cigarettes and sex go hand-in-hand according to Hollywood.  After all, how is smoking cigarettes that give you bad breath, turn your teeth yellow and make you prone to various diseases all that sexy? Let’s be real, it’s not.

In fact, if you want to improve your sex life, ditching the traditional cigarette should be the first thing you do.  In addition to initial attraction, many doctors agree that a person’s sex drive is reduced by smoking.  The main reason for this is the obstruction of the circulatory flow which causes soft erections in men and can cause women to have reduced sensations.  Smoking has also been blamed for being a major culprit in erectile dysfunction.

In 2007, a Chinese study found that smoking is just as bad for your sex life as it is for the body.  Over 7,500 men were involved in the study between the ages of 35-74.  None of these men had vascular disease and they were surveyed about their sex life and smoking habits.

Several important conclusions were drawn from this research, including a “statistical link between the number of cigarettes that men smoked and the likelihood they would experience erectile dysfunction.”

All of that does not sound too “sexually appealing,” does it?  Can making the switch to the vaping world actually improve your sex life? 

Let’s assume your partner is not a smoker.  Each time you have enjoyed a sexual experience together, you are releasing dangerous toxins that are not only bad for you but to them as well!  The good news is that e-cigs are odorless devices that do not release smoke into the air, but rather water vapor that won’t linger in the room or on your clothes.

Of course, there still needs to be more research conducted on the effects of e-cigs and your sex life.  However, the simple fact of not killing a romantic moment with a pungent cigarette may be appealing enough for some to make the switch now.

If you are ready, check out our e-cig starter kits at EverSmoke and begin the vaping journey!  Also, browse through our blog and learning center to discover more ways e-cigs outshine, outlast and out-perform traditional cigarettes.
