RE: Vaping throw down with my Dentist
I'm mor than willing to discuss the benefits of vape with some one who is willing tho take the time to hear what is being said .
Sadly my own mother is one of those with closed ears and open mouth . Some guy in a suit and tie says vapers are 10 times more likely to contract lung disease than smokers it must be so .Unfortunately there are many of these types, who hear some suit spout propaganda and adhere to it as the gospel truth with out ever considering motive or countering statement . No time to consider how accurate the statments are or what research they are based on .
8 out of 10 people prefer Burger King over McDonalds or Wendy's ? Most american have seen one of these adds , after seing one my self i did a poll on Yahoo answers . Some 47% of those who responded preferred McDonalds . Now im almost positive if i'd taken the same poll out side a Burger King or McDonalds the results would have been drastically different .
My point here is propaganda is a form of advertisement and is oftem manipulated or outright fabricated in effort to sell a belief regardles of facts .

Dogs have owners , Cats have staff .

RE: Vaping throw down with my Dentist
You go, girl!

I've had the same convo with my dentist and 3 doctors now.  All but one were really interested.  

That one though - well, the conversation ended when I told him that if he was that set on not investigating matters of public health, I couldn't imagine how he became a doctor or that he was a very good one, and that I would't be coming back.  He didn't like that.  

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

RE: Vaping throw down with my Dentist
My Doctor will say he doesn't like it - He admits it is better than smoking just he wants more testing done. So I guess that is a approval.
As far as dentist goes I will be back to mine tomorrow. I will see what he says if I remember. When it comes to dentist I am lucky I remember my own name once I sit in that chair. Don't like them one bit.  LOL

RE: Vaping throw down with my Dentist
Since none of my doctors know or suspect I ever smoked, I don't mention anything at all. Who knows, it may make it back to an insurance company that could deny a claim down the road because of a non-smoker box checked. No offense to advocacy but I'm not going to take that chance.

That is a really valid point actually - insurance companies will use any excuse not to pay.

RE: Vaping throw down with my Dentist
That's why I was always honest about smoking on all my forms. This is the first year I could happily click non smoker.

They'll still get you, because it of course refers to history. A multi-million dollar mistake I can't afford to risk!

My wife would kill me if I died without insurance. She may have to get a job!

RE: Vaping throw down with my Dentist
Good show, all my Doc's and Dentist are totally on board with my Vaping. All of them have put me into the "Former" Smoker category in their records.

For those who start spewing the bullshit junk science that our Government spews out I have a pretty standard response.

I take the word of the Royal Collage of Physicians who state that Vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking. It's not like they are one of the most respected medical organizations in the world, lead the charge back in the late 50's/early 60's against Tobacco and been around 500 years ya know.

That shuts them up pretty quick

RE: Vaping throw down with my Dentist
My doctor also added me to the list of ex-smokers, I switched to vaping and I can say that I am 100% sure that steam is safer than smoke. But for example, my dad, who has been smoking for more than 40 years, is sure that smoking cigarettes is much safer than vaping. He is convinced of this only because he saw many anti-advertising about the harm of vaping. But despite his "harmless" cigarettes, his teeth just look awful, all rotten and yellow. It's good that I have connections at Invisible Orthodontics in Bay Village, and they were able to exchange his teeth for high-quality implants.
