Vaping & cholesterol
I was talking to my neighbor over the weekend and was explaining to him how I'd quit smoking with vaping. He's also a smoker. He was trying to tell me that he heard that vaping causes cholesterol levels to spike very high. Anybody else heard anything like this? I surely haven't.

Can't say I have and I can't think of a mechanism.

But I'm no medic.

RE: Vaping & cholesterol
My brother in law finds lots of excuses to keep smoking. Maybe this fellow heard that through the grapevine and reasons that it is a good enough excuse to carry on sucking fags.

I thought that had a radically different meaning in the US. As in compromised immune systems .

RE: Vaping & cholesterol
I thought the term "fags" in the US meant gay men. As opposed to cancer sticks

RE: Vaping & cholesterol
It meant cigs long before it meant that other thing. I use it as a clever play on words. Although, not too clever, I suppose.

RE: Vaping & cholesterol
In UK usage it has only ever meant burny things.

RE: Vaping & cholesterol
That's kind of what I was thinking TW. He said he's tried vaping but didn't like it, said it made his soda (Mt. Dew) taste funny. I'm guessing he probably went with one of those crappy e- cigs from the local convenience stores. I din't really ask him but that was my assumption.
