Don't believe these Thai statements however there is something up with this product, just happy I never used it for it doesn't appear to be as safe as everyone says..

The only thing that's up is the number of unwarranted scare stories based on ignorance, which has made you and many others believe there is 'something up'.  Possibly you also come from the US where there there is a witch hunt aimed at vaping.

An article in a local (Thai) newspaper reported, this morning, that there are 18,000 Thai Buddhists monks under medical treatment for smoking related health issues and that there is a push to discourage smoking amongst the ranks.

How does this relate to vaping?

Oddly enough, that campaign by the Truth Initiative, formerly American Legacy Foundation, is funded by...... big tobacco, as part of the settlement from a lawsuit by 47 US States.

and yet i can happily walk into a pharmacy and buy as much nicotine gum as i want..

 

or into a 7/11 and buy all the cigarettes i want..

 

so why e-cigarettes??!

 

maybe its because they actually work in stopping smoking cigarettes?

 

wake me up when they ban NICOTINE full stop otherwise i'm just gonna file all these "warnings" under B&LLSH*T

Clearly the Government and tobacco industry do not want a reduction in Income and Revenue caused by the reduction in the addiction to the carcinogens (not nicotine!) in cigarettes through vaping and wish to perpetuate the addiction to cigarettes and the commensurate appalling death rate associated with it. Banning cigarettes completely would save 70000 lives a year.

Surely there were some studies done here in Thailand for the good doctor to make such a statement.

 

Or is he the same kind of doctor as the Vets at import station, who looks at Siamese cat and asks what breed is the cat or looks at pure bred bullmastiff but because papers say labrador he stamps her in as a labrador

 

Or could be one of those really skilled doctors who apply band aide to fix broken fingers

Absolute unadulterated rubbish, totally devoid of any truth or facts. For a start, Nicotine does NOT cause cancer. The Nicotine in an ecig is pharmsceutical grade nic, exactly the same priducymt from the same factories as used in "medical" patches, sprays, and gums, which are available over the counter with no sales restrictions in place. Even WHO has admitted its OK to use these "medical" products over a lifetime if the alternative is smoking as there is no known signuficant long term health consequences from their use over a lifetime. And note that pharma nic patch contains 30 times the amount of Nicotine than one cigarette stick. The tar and chemicals in cigarettes kill smokers. Not one person has ever died for inhaling vape from an ecig. Ever. Ecigs save lives. Tax them and let smokers have a life-saving choice <deleted>.

There are plenty of excellent doctors in Thailand.

 

None of them are civil servants though.

I am all for banning these things. I do not want to breathe in someone else's vaping chemicals. There is no shortage of information out there on the dangers of these.  People ending up in coma, lung damage, illness...not to mention batteries blowing up in smokers face and disfiguring them. Doesn't take much common sense to imagine what the long term effects of inhaling these chemical concoctions will be. This is something Thailand has gotten right in banning them.

Rubbish, like everything here.

 

If only they would use this kind of logic to ban burning of fields and forrests and smoking tobacco?
