  1. Dan koop je even een leesbrilletje, kost haast niks: https://www.kruidvat.nl/optiek/leesbrillen/c/30164
  2. Er staat "draft law" dus hopelijk wordt het de grond in geboord
  3. A recent TV showing of the Hong Kong Rugby 7s tournament was introduced by a commentator as being broadcast from a place “where the world comes to party”, but a recent development from the country’s government would suggest that this is poor marketing of Hong Kong for the unwary traveller. The Legislative Council of Hong Kong – after initially toying with the idea of regulating e-cigarettes sensibly – instead made an about-turn and has now produced a draft law which will criminalise possession of e-cigarettes and heated tobacco. In short, anyone caught vaping could be facing huge fines and possibly a jail term of up to 6 months. Verder: https://nnalliance.org/blog/299-vapers-should-be-prepared-to-steer-clear-of-hong-kong
  4. @Pazmaster ...maar dat gaat niet door, want de nicotine-producten van Big Pharma bevatten vanzelfsprekend farmaceutische nicotine, en dat is heeeeel andere nicotine
  5. Dit is wat TFA erover schrijft: DIACETYL, ACETOIN, ACETYL PROPIONYL, AND BUTANOIC ACID en daarna is gestart met de diketone-free DX-serie: https://tinyurl.com/y6j9vg7p
  6. Dan zouden de nicotinepleisters en nicotinekauwgom eveneens onder de drugswet moeten vallen.
  7. Met 100% VG valt niet te dampen; VG is veel te stroperig, moet verdund worden, kan hoogstens in een RDA, waarbij de zwart geblakerde lont vrij snel vervangen kan worden. Die Millers Goldline is al verdund, en dient maxVG genoemd te worden.
  8. ...maar dat geldt dus alleen voor kant-en-klare e-liquids, niet voor los verkrijgbare aroma's, en ook slechts voor diacetyl, dus niet voor acetoin, acetyl propionyl en butyric acid.
  9. Daarin staat: While you can eat foods that contain diacetyl to your heart’s content, inhaling it is where the trouble lies.
  10. @Chasepoes De eigenaresse van TFA is geschrokken toen ze merkte dat die flavors gebruikt werden om te dampen, want daar waren die flavors niet voor bedoeld. Daarna heeft zij zo snel mogelijk een hele serie diketonen-vrije aroma's op de markt gebracht: https://tinyurl.com/y6j9vg7p
  11. Caught in its auto-induced moral panic about the teen vaping epidemic, the FDA has decided that it would be better if certain vaping products were harder to get hold of than cigarettes, and the ones that were easiest to get hold of should be the ones most like cigarettes – tobacco and menthol flavour. This seems entirely mad to me and riddled with the potential for unintended consequences that would increase smoking in both adults and adolescents. Needless to say, FDA has not acknowledged or assessed possible unintended consequences – yet these are likely to overwhelm any possible benefits. So I decided to put in a comment on the measures on that theme. First, some background then my comment. What is FDA proposing? FDA intends to prioritize enforcement for lack of a marketing authorization against (in practice this means ‘prohibit’) flavoured ENDS products (other than tobacco-flavoured, mint-flavoured, and menthol-flavoured ENDS products) for: - Products sold in locations that minors are able to enter at any time – so that would include all regular shops, convenience stores, gas stations etc; - Products sold through retail establishments and online retail locations that have sold to minors after issuance of the guidance - Products sold online with no limit on the quantity that a customer may purchase within a given period of time; or - Products sold online without independent, third-party age- and identity-verification services that compare customer information against third-party data sources, such as public records.

  12. Ik ben direct gestart met > diketonen-vrije < liquids zodra TFA die aanbood. Heb ze regelrecht uit Californië laten komen, kostte een flinke smak porto, moest bijbetalen aan de postbode.
  13. Misconceptions about e-cigarettes prevent many smokers from using them to give up smoking. To help smokers to make a more informed decision we’ve discovered the truth behind five common e-cigarette myths # Myth 1: E-CIGARETTES ARE MORE HARMFUL THAN SMOKING TOBACCO CIGARETTES According to ASH Wales’ latest YouGov stats, over 50% of smokers in Wales do not know that e-cigarettes are less harmful than tobacco cigarettes. Meanwhile, surveys carried out by Public Health England found that nearly half of the population don’t realise that e-cigarettes are much less harmful than smoking. An expert independent evidence review published by Public Health England found that e-cigarettes are in fact 95% less harmful than smoking. # Myth 2: E-CIGARETTES ENCOURAGE YOUNG PEOPLE TO START SMOKING Fears that e-cigarette use would encourage young people to start thinking smoking is ‘normal’ have been shown to be unfounded. A study of 248,324 teenagers by researchers at Cardiff University found that young people’s attitudes towards smoking tobacco have become more negative since the emergence of e-cigarettes. Meanwhile the percentage of young people who reported having tried smoking continued to fall during the same period. According to the research, the percentage of young people who thought trying out smoking a cigarette was ‘ok’ fell from 70% in 1999 to 27% in 2015. This rate went down faster from 2011 onwards, during which time there was a surge in the numbers of people trying e-cigarettes # Myth 3: SMOKING E-CIGARETTES IS HARMFUL BECAUSE THEY CONTAIN NICOTINE According to Public Health England, 4 out of 10 smokers think it’s the nicotine in cigarettes that causes smoking-related cancer. It’s true that nicotine is highly addictive, however it is only carries a minimal risk to health. Actually it is the other chemicals contained in cigarettes that cause cancer not nicotine. And unlike cigarette smoke, e-cigarette vapour doesn’t contain tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most harmful elements in tobacco smoke. # Myth 4: E-CIGARETTES WON’T HELP YOU TO STOP SMOKING A major UK clinical trial involving 900 participants and funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), found that when combined with expert face to face support, e-cigarettes are almost twice as effective at helping smokers to quit as other nicotine replacement therapy such as patches and gum. Two groups of quitters were tested and those that combined e-cigarette use with behavioural support, also had far faster reductions in coughs and phlegm. # Myth 5: E-CIGARETTES ARE NOT PROPERLY REGULATED E-cigarettes are strictly regulated in the UK and must meet minimum standards of quality and safety as set out in the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016. Regulations cover not only the ingredients used to make the products but also packaging and labeling requirements. Manufacturers must notify the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency about any products they make, listing all the ingredients they contain.

  14. Vraag maar aan The Flavor Apprentice waarom ze de moeite hebben genomen om een hele serie DX-aroma's te fabriceren.
