Careful vapers, E-cigs cause pneumonia!
That's right peeps, just spotted this article that was posted on Steve Vapes e-cig blog with a link to an article from The Daily Commercial over in the good ol' US of A.

Check this:

Quote:Claudine Whitton, who works in Leesburg, has been smoking for 30 years and recently bought more than $30 of electronic cigarettes in an attempt to quit. But after using them, she said she developed pneumonia and her doctor cited electronic cigarettes as the cause.

Article HERE.

Of all the b**lshit spouted about e-cigs can this one be beaten? Big Grin

Her doctor may have said that because of being a moron. In fact, I heard of someone who simply quit and - probably partly as a result of the sudden change - contracted pneumonia. So, I guess the doctor may have simply misinterpreted the facts according to his/her beliefs.

i hate to say it but its (kinda, sort of, maybe-ish) possible. If she was using a really cheap and nasty eliquid it might have acetone in it. that can cause a type of pneumonia.

but yeah. nonsence

Life is the fire in which we burn

Total crock, probably a rephrased press release from some anti tobacco group. They seem to be on the offensive since the positive study on the effect of vapor on heart health.

I particularly enjoyed the part about " she gives her students something without addictives, nicotine patches"

You heard it here first, nicotine isn't addictive.. Smiling

I am going to make a press release saying so, quoting this article as the source, it will be the truth by the end of next month.

The trouble is that this goes completely unchecked and many people are inclined to believe everything they read. Thumbs Down

I've said it before, get ready for a barrage of untruths just because we are not helping the patch/gum/inhaler gravy train.

If there was anything to this, there would have been mass outbreaks of Pneumonia in ecig users, it can be caused by irritation of the lung lining but that is pretty rare, it's mostly virus and bacteria related and we all know PG kills the Pneumonia virus.
