Doctor reports “Using electronic cigarettes as dangerous as fruits, vegetables and fish”

This is a great watch!

This European News video found on Youtube interviews a doctor Phillip Prelle who is rallying behind e-cigarettes, stating the following:

“With the electronic cigarette we have managed to eliminate tobacco’s three big poisons which are tar, carbon monoxide and the fine particles which lead to cancer, heart attacks, and chronic bronchitis.”

“People are asking me if there is anything dangerous in them and I find this ridiculous.”

“If we want to compare the dangerous of electronic cigarettes, if I place tobacco all the way on the left, then after that alcohol and then fat products, followed by sugar products, then  I realize that electronic cigarettes are next to the fruits vegetables and fish.   The dangers are really very very  little.

“There are pesticides on some vegetables, there are  heavy metals in some fish.  That is the level of danger we are at with the electronic cigarette.”

Electronic cigarettes are as dangerous as fruits, vegetables, and fish.

There are discussions on the regulations in the EU regarding electronic cigarettes, and the pressure from big tobacco and pharmaceutical companies to lump e-cigarettes in with tobacco cigarettes, and what that would do to the e-cigarette marketplace in Europe.

    Ive been researching vaping a bit and am looking to try it. I just read an article about laws concerning E-Cigs and was wondering if Ejuice is laboratory tested for contaminates by Vendors in canada and if so how often. Knowing the answer would make me feel alot safer trying it out.

    I’m not crazy about e-juice with nicotine specially since I still smoke cigarettes. I got a regular ego ce4 kit and I’ve noticed I smoke less when I’m vaping even though my e-juice contains no nicotine. what I hate about e-cigs is that companies buy them dirt cheap from china and sell it to us at the price of a carton of cigarettes. I got my kit from horduck at a good price but I worry that this over pricing will get worse once the federal government starts to tax it as they do regular cigarettes….corporations are so short sited

    I would like to know the answer to whether these are laboratory tested (by reputable labs, not basement experiments) as well.

    It was easy to start smoking when I was only 14 years old. Quitting was impossible for me. I used everything you could buy or get a prescription for. Nothing worked. I have been using an e-cig for 8 months along with my husband. I no longer have a smokers cough, I no longer have to use my 3 puffers. I no longer have to smell bad……and so on. My husband had had several ongoing strokes and lost a lot of weight. I wish he had of started the ecig a year earlier than he did. He has gained 20 much need pounds since using the ecig and has is looking and feeling much better. Why in the world would any government or anyone want to even consider banning ecigs. When real cigs containing tar and carbon monoxide and other cancer causing ingredients are legal! That is insanity!

    A good friend just was recently diagnosed with cancer of the lung & liver. Having to quit smoking is very difficult for him. He is using nicotine gum and lozenges but we all know they suck. Would ecigarettes/ vaporizer be bad for him & worsen his cancer?

      Sounds to me like Canadian law makers have it both ways. They can’t be blamed for subverting the economy because they passed the bill and they can’t be blamed for trampling on consumers’ rights because those rights are specifically enumerated and, for those things missed, there’s the potential exemptions me1nIoned.it&#82t7;s as if we all know that DRM is useless but we all have to pretend otherwise lest we be paired with unsavory people and practices. It’s all facade.

    I have tried everything to quit smoking nothing worked I have now quit for almost a week but my friend on vapor told me to try a cigarette last night…..I took one puff and think I would have rather licked an ashtray now that I am getting nicotine from a cleaner source all I could taste was chemicals……I am done smoking he knew it was going to happen which is why he made me try it…..anyone wanting to ban these things is on the payroll from cigarette taxes or a cigarette company……I quit cold turkey with vape for a week and tried smoking again and couldn’t if I wanted to……I would challenge anyone to do the same

      I tried a cigarette after 3 weeks of being on an E-cig. I was sick for hours from it and nearly vomited. I am also 100% sure I will never smoke again.

    “There are pesticides on some vegetables, there are heavy metals in some fish. That is the level of danger we are at with the electronic cigarette.”

    is the quote implying that e-cigs are at the same level of danger as pesticides and heavy metals?

    E-cigs are a miracle. I wanted to stop smoking but couldn’t stop buying cigarettes. No cigarettes for 5 months. Someone asked me how dangerous they were. I said she would breath in more toxins when standing by the side of the road waiting for a bus. ADAM I thought the idea of e-cigs was to smoke less ?
