Is vapor also unhealthy for lungs?

Chris Worth’s reply: Something that isn’t pure air is unhealthy for the lungs and the system basically. Pure air, although, is at present solely out there up a mountain and mid-ocean, since we polluted all over the place else. Vaping is a number of orders of magnitude safer than smoking cigarettes. Precisely how…

Super Sweet not the same as TFA Sweetener
(Originally I suggested using 25% of cap ss vs tfa Sweetener in a recipe)

After learning more about super sweet I’d say don’t use it at all. And be aware that not all Sweetener is equal. Meaning using the wrong one can drastically change a recipe or even ruin it.

Australian Psychiatrists Urge Government To Lift Nicotine Ban

There’s been a shift in the debate over access to e-cigarettes containing nicotine in Australia.

Many psychiatrists operating within the country are urging the government to lift the ban on nicotine, because the mentally ill who are documented as being heavy smokers could stand to benefit from using vapor products instead of continuing to smoke cigarettes.

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) states that the mentally ill are more likely to smoke heavily with life expectancy cut by 20 years compared to the general population, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

It is currently legal to purchase vapor products in Australia, but it’s illegal to sell, possess or use nicotine with them.

The move by the RANZCP is the first instance of a specialist medical college or major health group to go against Australia’s medical community, which is largely in favor of banning e-cigarettes, The Herald reports.

England officially sides with vaping! | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers

England officially sides with vaping!

England is the first country in the world to recommend vaping to smokers as part of its official tobacco control plan. The 32-page document was released Tuesday. It applies only to England, not the entire United Kingdom, which also includes Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

“This is probably the first significant government policy paper anywhere that recognises and pursues the opportunities of tobacco harm reduction, rather than defining these technologies as a threat to be suppressed,” wrote Clive Bates in his blog.

England has been a pioneer — the pioneer — in promoting vaping to smokers.

The plan is starkly different from American tobacco control efforts. The idea that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), or the California Department of Public Health, might actually recommend that smokers use reduced-risk products like e-cigarettes to improve their health is about as likely as Stanton Glantz tearing open a pack of Kools and lighting up at a UCSF fundraiser.

England has been a pioneer — the pioneer — in promoting vaping to smokers. It wasn’t that long ago — just two years, in fact, in 2015 — when Public Health England’s “E-cigarettes: an evidence update” shook the foundations of tobacco control, and defined the divide in public health between harm reduction and prohibition.

Vaping in the workplace? Yes, please!

Last year, PHE issued guidance to employers, reminding them, “Different approaches will be appropriate in different places, but policies should take account of the evidence and clearly distinguish vaping from smoking.”

The tobacco control plan makes that advice more official. “This recognises that decisions on vaping policy should rest with owners and managers of premises – and that the justification to override the preferences of property owners with blanket vape-free laws does not exist,” writes Clive Bates. “This is an ethically robust position to take.”

Will England dump the TPD after Brexit?

The hated Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) provoked many vapers to vote to leave the European Union last year. The tobacco control plan provides the first official hint that England could possibly abandon the TPD after the U.K. exits the E.U.

“We will look to identify where we can sensibly deregulate without harming public health or where EU regulations limit our ability to deal with tobacco,” says the Department of Health. “In particular, the government will assess recent legislation such as the Tobacco Products Directive, including as it applies to e-cigarettes, and consider where the UK’s exit provides opportunity to alter the legislative provisions to provide for improved health outcomes within the UK context.”

That would be a welcome development for vapers and vaping businesses. The disruption to the market caused by the pointless regulations of the TPD has caused some vape companies in the U.K. to close, and forced vapers to hack devices and DIY e-liquid to have workable gear.

Daily Mix Tip: Storing DIY E-Liquid & Vape Juice

Daily Mix Tip: It is best to store your mixed e-liquid in glass or PET plastic bottles. LDPE and HDPE are fine bottles to use for daily use, but for making large batches of your flavorite recipes store the large quantity in glass or PET and transfer into your smaller bottles as you need it. Storing in LDPE can leave your juice vulnerable to air exposure as these bottles do breath and allow for flavors to soak into the plastic and absorb aromas from the environment as well which can cause off flavors.

If you are looking to pick up some PET bottles or Glass check out Wizard Labs

This synthetic “tongue” used to distinguish whiskies with glowing liquids could be helpful for drug safety

This synthetic “tongue” used to distinguish whiskies with glowing liquids could be helpful for drug safety

Everyone has that friend who claims they can distinguish between two drinks that, to everyone else, taste exactly the same. It’s hard to tell if they’re lying, but scientists have now created an artificial tongue that can actually do the same thing for whiskies — and this method could one day be helpful for drug safety.

It’s not just imagination: a lot of whiskies really are very similar, and the average person probably can’t tell one from another. For a study published today in the journal Chem, scientists tried to develop a way to distinguish whiskey at the chemical level. So, they created sensors that work just like the different taste receptors on a tongue, and used them to differentiate more than 30 different whiskies. This technique, unlike others, is useful because you can identify something using the original mixture, says co-author Uwe Bunz, an organic chemist at Germany’s Heidelberg University. Most of the time, you identify a mixture by separating its various parts by weight. You don’t need to do that here because you can just have the overall mixture interact with different solutions.

Our tongues have different receptors for different flavors — like sweet versus salty versus bitter. When you eat something, the molecules in the food interact with the different receptors to create the overall taste of a pickle, or Dijon mustard.

The research team’s sensors don’t look like a tongue, but they work the same way. It’s a series of tubes filled with a solution of different colors. All of them are fluorescent, meaning that they glow when you shine a blacklight on them. When you add a drop of whiskey, the chemicals in the whiskey interact with the solution to make it either more or less fluorescent.

Next, Bunz used a machine called a plate reader to measure exactly how much the whiskies changed the solution. From this, they found a unique pattern of intensities for each of the different whiskies. “You can even discriminate Irish whiskies from Scotch-blended, and single malt from double malt,” says Bunz.

The group has done the same thing with different white wines and, next up, will experiment with red wines. It’s not just about alcohol, though: in the future, this could be used to tell fake drugs apart from real ones.
