The only safer alternative to smoking ....is not smoking ...proof here

i am not surprised by this,i mean E-cigarettes all the rage,but like cigarettes,there must be a  chemical to  supress the craving.....
i always thought that  e-cigs much like most stuff inhaled is bad  for you ,but then i have  never  smoked ,never  found  an  attraction to  addictions  like  this ,but there is never  a safer  alternative to smoking unless its  quitting ,that's the healthier option of  course.
but i am sure this  article will not  cure  anyone  it  might scare  them ,but only  when one is  faced  with death do they realise  that  smoking has no benefits ,even that deos  not  deter a  hard core smoker...it's a matter of  choice for the individual......

‘Hidden’ High Levels Of Cancer-Causing Formaldehyde Found in E-Cigarettes

E-cigarettes may not be as “safe” an alternative to cigarette smoking as hoped, according to a new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
Researchers found “hidden” high levels of the known carcinogen formaldehyde in popular tank-system e-cigarettes, by way of formaldehyde-releasing agents given off during the vaping process.
They discovered that when vaping 3 milligrams of liquid at high voltage, e-cigs can generate around 14 milligrams of formaldehyde, which is then inhaled by a smoker.
By contrast, the scientists suggest that a tobacco smoker would take in roughly .15 milligrams of formaldehyde in a standard cigarette, equating to around 3 milligrams in a 20-pack.
“This estimate is conservative because we did not collect all of the aerosolized liquid, nor did we collect any gas-phase formaldehyde,” the researchers write in their paper.
E-cigarettes are very new, largely untested, and not yet regulated, so it’s impossible to say right now whether they are more or less harmful than smoking regular cigarettes — especially since there are thousands of chemicals in standard cigarettes, and formaldehyde is only one.
However, the effects could be huge, the researchers say. They explain that long-term vaping may up lifetime cancer risk by five to 15 times when compared to long-term smoking in a roughly 150-pound person. And there’s the question of whether formaldehyde in cigarettes is as bad a cancer culprit as some believe it to be, and if the formaldehyde-releasing agents behave similarly — or worse — to gaseous formaldehyde in the respiratory tract.
“Formaldehyde-releasing agents may deposit more efficiently in the respiratory tract than gaseous formaldehyde, and so they could carry a higher slope factor for cancer,” the researchers write.
Formaldehyde is a chemical found in cigarette smoke, pressed-wood products, and fuel-burning appliances, and has been linked with leukemia and nasopharyngeal cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute.  
Again, the scientists stress there’s no way to know conclusively the long-term health effects of e-cigarettes yet, as they are so new to the market. But this new finding just adds to evidence showing their potential health risks.

Gee ya think only 43 pissed of with china ../////I would think the planet would be  fucking pissed at their  shennanigans ……….  43 countries criticize China at UN for repression of Uyghurs EDITH M. LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N. Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the

michael guist of swamp people dies....

Well Michael Guist of the swamp people , died...apparently he  fell over the side of the boat....... Personally i did not think he was that  famous..... But apparently  the history channel  did  three seasons  on people  living in the bayou ......who the hell would wants to live there ). Now as i see it is  absolute ,shit  apart  from a  few, i mean a a few  channels,......... But i got to thinking, is  the history channel  so desperate all they can do is  film a reality TV about  people living in a  swamp....... This  shows you how bad reality TV has gotten ,when the history channel and  the swamp has  nothing to do with history.......well it  could be  if you look at how old it is , but  its  not about the age of the swamp its about people living in swamp ........ Are people reaching an all time low  here in  media, i mean what the hell exciting can be done in a swamp    apart from dying of course  that's up there ...... But the swamp ...i mean  how  do these  guy

well middle of the road

  As i do not like the smell of  weed/dope/smoke......it reminds me of  too many things .....but that's not all....... i  cannot get rid of the smell in places  like cigarettes ......but that in not the  crux of the rant........weed  does something to the transponders  ........although i guess it has  spawned  many songs/babies/deaths/symphonies  ...as we all know conductors are stoners....... ......paintings /artwork/car crashes ........fuck -ups /and of  course the legendary munchies .........i once  watched  a man  devour a mixing bowl of rice krispies ....high as fuck ......epic performance !!!!!!....we never   had  man versus food then .......but that would be a  winner .....but weed it has  its pros and cons ....i don't like it .....never  have  ...i don't like putting smoke or  things in my lungs ....i don't like  getting high ....it usually leads  to paranoia...and i get leery ....so best left alone i think .......if i get high  am not in control and that is not
