“The sultry smoker lighting up on a Parisian café terrace, a staple image for countless French films could soon be a thing of the past if Agnès Buzyn, the country’s health minister goes ahead with plans to ban smoking in movies,” says Rory Mulholland of the Telegraph.
As an avid writer, screenwriter and overall fan of a tantalizing story, there’s a part of me that is at odds with the idea of banning smoking, a very real aspect of life, from French films.
(If only you could see the bemused expression creased across my face.)

Here we are vapers. It’s the week of Thanksgiving and I have a tidbit of bad news. Hopefully, this doesn’t impact many of you, but just in case it does, we wanted to make sure everyone was aware that the USPS Arizona office is having shipping delays… again.

“Don’t Vape Your Health Away”
“The fading vape culture”
“E-cigarettes with more nicotine may make teens vape more”
“Vaping controversy still hazy”
“School closes bathrooms to combat vaping”
The aforementioned were just some of the headlines trending online today. Article after article of the same stagnant rhetoric disseminated to the masses in order to maintain fear and abate change. While reading, I realized that each author wrote in a way that highlighted the perceived ills of vaping, while completely ignoring the scientific facts.

Ever since 2012, the U.K. has held a smoking cessation crusade during the month of October. Appropriately, they refer to it as, “Stoptober.” This year, the organizers of the campaign included electronic cigarettes as part of their advertisements and promotions, for the very first time. This comes with what we had written about a couple months back – the U.K. has released official statements recommending vaping as an alternative to smoking. More about that here.

The 266th and current Pope of the Catholic Church, arguably the most recognized figure across the globe, has made headlines with a recent decision concerning cigarettes.

The last great battle between vape shops and big tobacco, or what I like to refer to as the battle of “good versus evil” may not have begun outright just yet, but a very subtle disturbance in the water tells us that there is some major churning happening beneath the surface… a lot more on this later.

… A brief addendum to “What’s in Your Bottle?”
In light of some recent confusion surrounding a blog post detailing the heavy metal antimony, which is used in the production of Polyethylene terephthalate, often abbreviated as PET, I felt some clarification was needed on which types of plastics are deemed, “food safe.”

POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE— ever heard of it? Chances are, you have not.
And this is not to say that you are not well-versed in the egregiously complicated language of chemistry because I’m sure you are. However, if you are like me (Lawd Jesus, I hope you are not like me), busy as all hell, sprinting through life, then you probably do not have time to flip your bottle upside down in order to see what type of plastic is being used. That, and you probably never gave it much thought… until now.
I’m just being honest people.

As Red so eloquently stated in Shawshank Redemption… “You Godda#m right!”
It is not so much that we are shocked by the actions and behavior of government agencies, agenda-driven politicians and shameful health groups who turn a blind eye to the crucially pertinent truth, but rather we are tired, tired of having the same strategic, soulless rhetoric spat in our faces despite the overwhelming evidence.

It goes without saying that smoking traditional cigarettes isn’t exactly great for your oral health. What about vaping? There was a study done in Italy which evaluated smokers turned vapers to see specifically how their oral health was affected in the transition and aftermath.
