Can the Use of WTAs Ever Be Safe?

Can the Use of WTAs Ever Be Safe?

Yes. Swedish Snus probably contains all the WTAs possible (plus measurable quantities of carcinogens), and as the health outcomes for Snus users in Sweden are virtually identical to those who have totally quit, it seems that ad lib consumption of nicotine and WTAs has no identifiable risk at population level. A Snus user in Sweden has about the same risk as a non-smoker, and this is shown by the national health statistics (which are unique);

Is The Use of WTAs Safer Than Smoking?

Is The Use of WTAs Safer Than Smoking?

The use of WTAs added to e-liquid seems on the face of it to be far safer than continuing to smoke, since it is the smoke that causes 100% of diseases associated with smoking (+ or - 0.001%), not the active tobacco compounds. However, it is possible that some carcinogens present in tobacco may accompany the WTAs into the e-liquid. Therefore, without further research, it would be unwise to state it is as risk-free as the use of pharmaceutical grade nicotine alone, which we know has little in the way of carcinogens. 

Increased Risk of Vaping?

Increased Risk of Vaping?

The vaping of complex tobacco-derived liquids is not the same as use of regular refills that just contain pharma-grade nicotine (which is, essentially, just dietary supplementation) [3]. However, an e-liquid would need to be thousands of times more toxic before the risk approached that of smoking.

Increased Potential for Dependence

Increased Potential for Dependence

It seems likely that a combination of nicotine plus other WTAs has more potential for dependence. However, it may be that the percentage of cigarette smokers who absolutely cannot convert to a nicotine-alone system is not high (although this is subject to some debate). 

The Vice-Like Grip of The Cigarette

The Vice-Like Grip of The Cigarette

Cigarettes are a fully-engineered product: they are not simply tobacco leaves chopped up and rolled in a paper tube. They have been carefully crafted to be as efficient, or as addictive, as possible - according to your point of view. There are several ingredients in tobacco that have the potential for dependence

How Mentoring and Alkaloid Variation Affect Success with THR

How Mentoring and Alkaloid Variation Affect Success with THR

The success rates for what we might call 'single-option vaping': artificial restriction to one make of mini ecig and one or two refill types, along with zero advice or support (as is the norm in clinical trials and studies) is known to be around 10% to 12%. This is when the subjects are offered the worst possible combination of factors. With some relaxation of these artificial restrictions, it can reach 30%. With a decent offer of product choice and basic support, the 'success rate' in switching at 1 year is 41% as measured in the latest trial [8].

Switching to An Alternative Smoking

Switching to An Alternative Smoking

It can be hard for people to stop smoking; or they may not want to; and they may derive significant benefits from it, especially in the short and medium term before any damage is caused. There are medical, topical and personal benefits for many people in addition to pleasure. Therefore, it is not necessarily the case that quitting is good, continuing to smoke is bad - there is a balance to be struck. 

Defining Alkaloids: What are They?

Defining Alkaloids: What are They?

Alkaloids are an active material produced by an organism, often but not exclusively a plant, to perform a specific function or functions. It is fundamentally important to note several things about alkaloids: They are consumer products not medicines unless/until specifically sold as medicines Alkaloids can be either consumer products or medicines Some alkaloids are both at the same time They can be nutrients present in the normal diet (i.e. they are produced by and contained in vegetables)

What are Whole Tobacco Alkaloids?

What are Whole Tobacco Alkaloids?

The term 'whole tobacco alkaloids' is used to describe all the active alkaloids in tobacco, since nicotine is just one of the active components. The list of all these active ingredients is quite long, but the principal alkaloids are nicotine, nornicotine, anatabine, anabasine and myosmine. We tend to think of tobacco being associated with nicotine, and this is true as it is the most important alkaloid measured by quantity.
