RE: Vaping & cholesterol
Mt. Dew is also loaded with sugar. I think much more than most US sodas. I used to drink 2-3 sodas a day, mainly Mt. Dew or Coke. Have seriously cut back on those also. I might have 1-2 a week now. Much prefer tea, coffee, water or gatorade.

RE: Vaping & cholesterol
Anyone remember Jolt cola?  Those were the days.  These days I'm caffeine free and drinking more water thanks to vaping.

Just a little on topic, you cannot make anyone change their life till they are ready.  My starter kit sat around unopened for a year, before the cost of smoking drove me to use it.  If money hadn't been an issue I would still be smoking.

White, I get an invalid url when I try your link. 

I did some reading on this subject and seems like more fear mongering.  Some new vapors had an increase, most do not.  Only long term research will tell if this might actually be an issue.

Let's see if this one works. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3714724
I've read far more reports of levels dropping than raising. I agree for the most part that it is simply fear mongering.

Thought I saw Jolt Cola at a PUBLIX when I was in Florida in March......

Always love going stateside as items no longer permitted here are available there and visa versa.... loved it when I was in Paris and saw stuff there in the pharmacy on the shelf that is only available by prescription here.... Smile

RE: Vaping & cholesterol
When I lived in Detroit we made several trips to Windsor.  The 18 age for drinking attracted a lot of people from Detroit.  Wish I could still make it to Canada, I need some things there I can only get by prescription here.

We should swap shopping lists! Smile

Whenever I go stateside I pick up hydrocortisone cream...here it's 0.5 active ingredient without a prescription and a prescription is $15, I purchase it in any pharmacy or even walmart for $6 and I've found it with 2% active ingredient....4x the benefit for 1/3 the cost....and not even the store generic brand but the brand name stuff....same for Aleve....on the flip side my buddies in Cape Cod love it when I show up with a 24 of John Labbatts Classic.... canadian 6.5% alcohol beer...vs the stuff called beer down there! Smile

As for cholesterol, OMG.....I can't get through a single aisle without racks of sweets and junk food everywhere! Sad
