"Vaping safe as air!"
I don't know if this is a tabloid or what. It's a UK website so Friends in the UK may have a better Idea. This article seems a little to good to be true so to say I'm skeptical would be an understatement. The claim is that a study done by the British American Tobacco Company shows that vapor is as safe as air. Link here:

RE: "Vaping safe as air!"
That looks like a great article, but I don't know much about that site. If it's a reputable site, that could be some great advertising for ecig advocacy. I'm worried though because if it's not a reputable site, it could do more harm than good. I'm kind of... Apprehensive? I guess that's the right word. Anyway I'm kind of apprehensive because it seems counterintuitive for a tobacco company to be promoting Ecigs. Perhaps it's a company that makes one of the gas station ecig brands?

I'm from the UK and tabloid newspapers like the Daily Mail and the Mirror wouldn't be on my list of believable news sites.

Oddly enough, in some big cities it probably is as safe as the air.

RE: "Vaping safe as air!"
Compared to the air where I've just been....

A patient who smokes 60-80 a day. In the hour I was there he smoked 6 cigs.

The walls, windows, ceiling, floor and door are all dark brown. As is the furniture which used to be cream leather.

A professor of psychiatry I was friendly with (Who died of lung cancer two years ago) was at a medical conference in Beijing in 2011. He reckoned that sucking the air there through a lit cigarette actually made it cleaner.

RE: "Vaping safe as air!"
i have issue trusting anny form of media .
i have a reaative (vape natzi kill joy bi...) who regularly sends links to news articles regarding e-cig explosions . real intereating thing , 4 men 1 from alton nh , 1 from sacremento ca , 1 from provo ut , and the forth fom coneticut who look identical and all run the same machin in factories layed out identically all had an e-cig explode in their pocket . uncanny isn't it?

not at all to say vape is not safe , more pointing out that mass media tends to have their own agenda . my grand mother used to say ,nevere give full trust to a man who is selling you something or sell you on something .

  Sounds just like my father-in-law's house. Only difference is that he is hooked up to an oxygen tank. I'm afraid to go in that place.Bomb

If it comes from Public Health England or Sheffield University then it's almost certainly wrong.
