The toxic news media from the USA has unfortunately leaked across the pond and stoked fears into the hearts of smokers in the UK. The UK Government and Public Health England once again has to remind it’s citizens, as John Newton, Director of Health Improvement at Public Health England said
January 31st 2020 – Health managers have decided to allow vaping in the grounds of Devon’s largest hospital.
In the United States our politicians are attempting to outright BAN any and all vapor products ( except those partially owned by the biggest big tobacco companies ) meanwhile in the UK hospitals across the country are changing their verbiage from a “SMOKE FREE” hospital to a “TOBACCO FREE” hospital because they now allow vaping on hospital grounds.
Tuesday February 25th 2020 the CDC finally published their final press release regarding the “EVALI” outbreak which started in roughly june 2019. During these months of investigation by the CDC, the CDC told consumers to stop “vaping” and that “vaping” was the root cause of these lung illnesses.
Gizmodo even reported back in October of 2019 that the CDC was still telling people to “stop vaping” but questioned why stating
The Mayo Clinic recently Tweeted about an experiment that 8th graders in Rochester NY did to show how dangerous vaping was. The idea was they would compare developing zebrafish embryos developing in a solution of water and e-liquid, to those developing in just good normal fish water.
Obviously the e liquid fish died because… you know, generally anything other than normal good fish water is going to kill a fish. Especially a DEVELOPING EMBRYO. I think this experiment could have been done with coffee or dish soap and come to the same results, but don’t take my word for it.
Well would you just look at that? Us World and News Report recently posted an article about a study that shows what we all have known for a decade. E-Cigs are popular among smokers for quitting. Is “duh” a strong enough word here?
A Reddit user by the name of u/CheekyMoneyMama recently posted in the r/electronic_cigarette sub reddit with her anecdotal story of getting a CT scan recently from her doctor. She, like myself are one of the many many vapers that have received news like this from their doctor.
Recently my ENT doctor told me similar things while putting a camera down my throat. Knowing I was a 13 year smoker he said “You would have never known”. Unfortunately to people like Jerome Adams we are nothing but anecdotes. But how many anecdotes does it take before we are no longer anecdotes? Switching is quitting combustion and it boggles my mind that politicians and BodyPart ORGS can’t see past their hatred of JUUL and nicotine.

By analyzing common themes across the Instagram images, the researchers found that over 70% contained e-juices and devices, which contain higher nicotine concentrations and are often popular among e-cigarette novices. The analytics data shared by the vaping influencers also showed that many of their followers were underage (13 to 17 years old).
I’m calling BS on this article and their research on vape influencers. They don’t name the influencers that were interviewed and they don’t provide any evidence that any of their followers were underage. They simply say “many of them were underage”
Well here are my Instagram analytics
Take a look at these anti vaping adds from the Philippines and you tell me what you think the intent of them is. To scare kids away from vaping? Or to actually advertise to them?
Michelle Minton on twitter recently posted a really great tweet and Christine’s reply is spot on. This is the real tragedy and absolutely speaks to WHY youths are seeing out substances in the first place. It’s the same reason why I ( a 42 year old guy ) sought out “legal for me substances” to cope with my stress and anxiety.
Young people in 2020 are part of a crazy social media internet world that I couldn’t imagine dealing with at 12 or 13 years old. I remember 7th grade, it sucks man. It’s also when I first smoked weed, first smoked cigarettes and first drank alcohol, and I didn’t have the non-stop internet popularity contest of Instagram or Facebook to deal with.
I’ve been receiving a lot of emails and DM’s as to the status of my Patreon aka The YOYOY Cool Kids Club. Because my content is related to “adult” themes like vaping and nicotine, I HAVE to be labeled as an “ADULT CONTENT” creator on Patreon.
