COPD smokers who switched to e-cigs: health outcomes at 5-year follow up

https://grimmgreen.com/2021/03/19/copd-smokers-who-switched-to-e-cigs-health-outcomes-at-5-year-follow-up/

I didn’t realize there was another follow up to the 2018 Study with roughly the same name. This was published in October 2020 and once again follows up on 29 of the original 44 smoking adults involved in the study. The aim of the study? “a long-term prospective assessment of respiratory parameters in a cohort of COPD patients who ceased or substantially reduced conventional cigarette use with ECs.”

“the benefits gained appear to persist long term.”

COPD smokers who switched to e-cigarettes: health outcomes at 5-year follow up

Their conclusions from the 5 year follow up?

Full Study here

For those like me ‘ a·me·lio·rate/əˈmēlyəˌrāt/ – to make something bad, better. Good news for those smoking adults suffering from COPD. It looks like e-cigs can not only reverse the condition, but as you can see above, “the benefits gained appear to persist long term.”.

It’s evidence like this that makes me befuddled over the stances that organizations like W.H.O. take on clearly far less harmful clean nicotine vapor products. Aren’t they supposed to be following and supporting the science? Regardless if the results are not what they wanted?

The Mongrel RDA – Build Stream / Rundown in 41min or less!

https://grimmgreen.com/2021/01/26/the-mongrel-rda-build-stream-rundown-in-41min-or-less/

If i’m being really really honest here, this Mongrel RDA has been sitting in my office for close to a full month now. Which in the vape world might as well be 6 months. The Mongrel RDA is a 24mm single coil guy. Really interesting looking airflow and airflow inserts. After a few dry toots the airflow feels pretty nice. Leaning toward the “sharp” side, but I still have faith this Mongrel RDA will deliver for me.

So let’s build it together!!!

Timestamps as a fancy quote

Now that i’ve had some time to spend with it…

It’s been a little banger man. Due to the position of the coil, there is some “spatter” that happens when you fire it. You have to really want to make this RDA leak, I mean really flood that deck. It’s designed to squonk as well, so a deep juice well is a must.

Flavor is solid. It’s a single coil, so it’s not full of richness, but it is nice and tasty. The big downside so far, as we saw in the video is the LOUD AIRFLOW. Man this Mongrel RDA has a loud effing airflow. It kinda just screams at you. Despite those flaws, it’s still pretty rad. Plenty of better RDA’s on the market, but they don’t all come with a spare glass cap.

Tobacco Control Leader Issues A Plea – TBN

https://grimmgreen.com/2021/03/10/tobacco-control-leader-issues-a-plea-tbn/

Welcome back to TBN. Vape industry news, advocacy and information. We pride ourselves on following science and fact over politics and partisan lines. Our guests often include health advocates, experts and doctors. Timestamps are the first pinned comment underneath this video. Science will win, Vaping is going to change the world and save millions and millions of lives

The big topic this week in the vape / tobacco control space is a “manifesto” of sorts. A paper put out by veteran tobacco control leader Cliff Douglas. Cliff Douglas has worked in tobacco control for 33 years, he founded the American Lung Association Center For tobacco Control. This guy is a huge deal and has written a pretty earth shaking paper.

We are going to dive into it, talk about our take aways and discuss what this means for the bigger tobacco control landscape and how I believe this will be one of the catalysts for mainstream vape acceptance.

Vaping better than NRT for stopping smoking, evidence suggests – GOV.UK

As number of vapers in England plateaus, incorrect perceptions of its relative risks compared to smoking may be discouraging smokers from using vaping to quit.

Vaping and Tobacco Harm Reduction – In My Professional Opinion

https://grimmgreen.com/2021/02/24/vaping-and-tobacco-harm-reduction-in-my-professional-opinion/

Great video and presentation from former ASH Director Clive Bates. Paints an incredible picture of the efficacy of using e-cigs for tobacco harm reduction. I love this video and feel it’s really worth a watch. Accurate and honest information presented very matter of factly.
