CDC challenges safety of e-cigarettes with new "Tips from Ex-Smoker" ad

During my research into 
e-cigarettes while writing 
Romancing the Smoke: 
Reflections of a Nicotine 
Addict, in 2010-11, my 
conclusions were three-fold:
e-cigarettes are a product 
designed to keep the habit
firmly in place; the amount
of vapor created by a vaping
device during inhalation
appears to be far too much
for lungs to handle in the
long term. And further, they
they are targeting young
(underage) hipsters who 
think smoking behavior
is even cooler now that it's
high tech. These opinions 
were widely dismissed.
The new ads by the CDC 
include a 35 year old woman 
who suffered a collapsed lung 
while developing COPD when 
she smoked and vaped.

  1. After doing some online research, I've ordered my first e-cig kit off of VaporFi.
