You MUST watch.
Sunday night BBC1 9.30pm - Horizon. It is all about Ecigs and vaping - and I can tell you it is extremely favourable. Includes medical checks on vapers who previously smoked and also on non smokers who vaped to see any harmful results. It will be well worth watching. Don't miss it.

They usually are. But pretty much all of it is only available to those in the UK. If it's good, someone may stick it up on YouTube.

There are proxies out there that will let you watch iPlayer stuff from outside the UK.

Sounds like it might be related to the article above.  The opinion of a non-smoker trying vaping, with some medical information.

SOme cable/satellite networks have BBC channels - I'm gonna find a way to watch this!

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

We'll find a way.

This is the BBC site for the programme which is a well-respected science programme. Though not as respected as it used to be.

RE: You MUST watch.
My info. was slightly wrong - sorry. It is BBC2 at 9.30 and it is a special edition lasting an hour and five minutes - a good long time for a programme on vaping. Are we starting to win the battle I wonder.

RE: You MUST watch.
Was a very powerful insight into how significant the health benefits are from vaping vs smoking!

I was surprised at the amount of smokers in that test group that managed to do so well with NRT.. I'd have thought the numbers would be similar to the cold turkey group.

Another thing I did notice was the deliberate lack of data from some of the analysts carrying out the tests, like the one testing the amount of dead cells with different flavourings... we never got to see how many cells died when exposed only to air Smile

I think though, overall - the message was a positive one!


Thanks for the heads-up about this programme Eddie Good
