Is vaporizing nicotine in a solution of propolyene glycol or vegetable glycerin a healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes? What about the oils they use to flavor these so called 'e-liquids' or 'smoke juice'? What are the effects of these flavoring oils being inhaled?

Just curious...

It won't kill as many people as Obamacare once it kicks in and gets going.

Bite me. What I said is true. Your asking stupid questions about breathing in nicotine vapors and oils, wondering if it's bad for you.... duhhhhhhhhh, ya think? A serious question, really? Ok, here goes, breath in crap, it's not good for you... the worse crap you breathe in, the worse it is for you. Clear it up for you genius? Did you miss that class in General Health class in high school? Obamacare is not political on my part, it was forced on us by the Regime. The fact is when the death panels come in it will kill more people than tobacco. And this thing about a program director for a tobacco prevention and cessation coaliton... there goes more tax money down the drain!

Because every single thing in life is now politicized in some manner.

While we all know booze harms and kills many people, this is not a forum about booze. If you are not aware this forum is about tobacco. In the future please try to keep on the subject.

If you were smart enought to investigate it, you would find out that is the case with nationalized health care, such as in canada. Your an example of a typical air-head elitist socialist democrat, you only know how to make belittling statements and call names when your hiding behind anonymity, offering no substance to an issue. Let me interpret that in toothless redneck sullivan county language that you will understand... your a pussy!

You ask a question if it is healthier? The ingredients in the E cigarette are the same as in a regular cigarette, only a few thousand less. The obvious advantage is with the E cigarette only the smoker gets the nicotine, not the by-stander, as it should be.

It is very likely that e-cigarettes will cause fewer health problems than standard cigarettes. However, it is difficult to know because there is no monitoring of what is or isn't put into them or how much of each is used.
That is the main reason behind opposition to marketing of e-cigs. Another is that, whether the other chemicals are involved or not, nicotine in vapor form is the same thing as nicotine in standard cigarette smoke.
Still another is that use of e-cigs perpetuates ludicrous image of smoking as a normal activity rather than a bizarre function of addiction.
They reinforce the ritualistic element of nicotine addiction, both in the user and in those around the user.
For all their putative faults, Chantix and Zyban address the addiction itself, and that addiction is the true disease caused by smoking. All the others are arguably "complications of nicotine addiction".
