  1. I quit smoking after over 45 years due to vaping.. What is found in vape is VERY low levels of what was mentioned.. This is a scare tactic that keeps many away from vaping thinking that smoking is safer! This is totally wrong! The UK has proven that vaping is 95% safer than smoking! Teens will do whatever they are told not to do.. I know I did just that! I'd rather see teens try vaping than smoking any day if they must try anything!

  2. Im from Argentina, im a heavy smoker and i succesfully managed to stop smoking for a while thanks to vaping as a replacement. I say for a while becouse i couldnt get more nicotine liquid since its ILLEGAL so i switched back to tobacco. The goverment says they want to stop people from smoking while at the same time making illegal the best method of leaving the cigarrette… why? well becouse they are either imcopetent or they love the insane amount of drug money they get via heavily taxed tobacco. Either way this sucks and i would love for these videos to focus more in how vaping its an excellent cure/alternative for cigarrette addiction.

  3. I’ve been chewing tobacco for about 4 years and I’m 17. I got a juul a month ago and haven’t touched a can since then

  4. Hey I’m a fan of y’all’s show and I’ve never vaped before. But it just seemed to me like you might have been showing your bias in this episode. It sounded like you strongly promote an abstinence only position. On the under tone though it seems like the common suspicion is correct that vaping isn’t as bad as smoking. Just an small observation. I still love the show and will continue to be a fan.

  5. I'm a non-smoker in Quebec (Canada), and I remember the flavoured cigarettes fad really picked up but suddenly disappeared – the huge uptick in teens' smoking (which was remarkable for Quebec, it's very present here everywhere) led the gov't to outlaw any flavourings "other than tobacco." The 2015 amendments to the Tobacco Control Act include that every law that applies to tobacco and cigarettes applies to vaping and e-cigs (except flavourings, for now). So no vaping or smoking indoors, in vehicles with somebody underage, near public entrances or windows, or even restaurant terraces (the tables outside).
    Buying any tobacco products under 18 is illegal, but only now is it actually illegal to buy them for somebody underage! That might actually make a difference in reducing underage smoking, *finally*, since until now they could just get them from their parents. (I kid you not, that's often a "cultural" thing, like a beer at a family BBQ right of passage.)

  6. If you look up how much you die from secondhand smoke it's a big number I don't want that to happen why you don't want that to stop turn the stuff is bad I don't see it for myself it is pretty bad or we just

  7. It takes a 5th grader to figure out what's inside a e liquid so why it takes us this long answer that question

  8. FDA is high download things from this if they lose out a lot of money that means they can't pay the doctors they can't pay medical researchers and can't pay Sciences to do the research so they make up any story about

  9. They just the people to quit smoking if they do that they don't tax us on these things then make up any story to make you believe all the stuff it's bad just quite a doing that it's too popular and they don't have no control over it it don't matter if it heats up and make poison was you know why the FDA through these two things are safe purple glycol vegetable glycerin is proven by the FDA safe so all those reading research

  10. I'm from Canada and we have to be 18 to buy e-juice with nicotine, but there's this weird glitch in the law that I don't fully understand and it's the reason the only e-juice outlet in my small town can only carry nicotine free e-juice. I'm also 29 and a smoker/vaper AKA indecisive quitter. I understand how vaping helps alot of people quit and it's popularity in my area makes it by far the most accessable quitting aid. I never did understand why non-smokers would start vaping. THC e-juice isn't available in my area but I'm hoping with legalization in july it will be soon.

  11. I live in WA. I think it should be up to individual choice. I tried it. I didn't care for it. If I want to smoke something, the little I smoke I might as well smoke the real thing.

  12. Well did you know the oxygen that we breathe has toxins in it that is bad for us for instance when you're filling up your car you smell gasoline and that kills your brain cells that's toxic to humans or to any biological being so everything is toxic and that's cool

  13. Sounds like the tobaco companies hating . Just like taxies vs. Uber. In both cases somebody came up with a better product , and the other is no longer able to dominate .

  14. You have great potential man! Not that you asked, but imo if you sped up the delivery, it would really help!

    Keep up the good work👍🏼

  15. "..Not smoking/vaping is the healthier alternative." Thank you! People use "healthy" on just about anything these days. Smh..

  16. I really wish you noted just how much less exposure to toxic elements that former smokers get from vaping than from traditional cigarettes. In many cases it's as low at 1/400th or even 1/1000th. The British health governments found that vaping is about 95% less toxic than combustible cigarettes. There WAS a study that found elevated amounts of cadmium and chromium, but if you read the study you'll find that they used only 1 liter per minute airflow in their tests. Considering that a normal breathing rate is 6 liters per minute, you can assume that they were torching their coils and ramping up the heat much higher than what any vape user would do. It was misleading at best. Other than that, thanks for not being alarmist like a lot of other publications like to do.

  17. How do you make a 6 minute video on vaping and not even MENTION smoking cessation? Most vapers are former smokers, not future ones. If PBS can't make an informative video without peppering in fear mongering and derisive opinions that boarder on bullying, I have little faith that anyone can.

  18. You need to do real research before posting something like this. There are several decade long studies done in Europe regarding vaping and their effects on the body. Vaping has been found to be 95% safer than smoking. Also, studies in Europe have found that vaping isn't a gateway to smoking among teens. Vaping helped me stop smoking over 2 years ago and I did a lot of research before I started vaping. Please do further research of studies outside of the US that are independent and not funded by the tobacco companies in order to make vaping look like it's bad for you.
