Another Hit Piece

In the video above, I go over and break down the article by The Verge about the JUUL, the science behind nicotine salts, and policies around nicotine and teen usage.

  1. Hey Wayne, love what you do and I love nicotine but I think you might need to reign in your pro-nicotine views (re: comments at 08:32 on nicotine). I totally agree about the cognitive benefits and I always come back to my desk sharper and clearer after my nicotine hit but…

    There is decent research that nicotine can lead to hardened arteries and raised blood pressure (source: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/09/170910232512.htm)

    Also it can lead to receding gums from reduced blood flow (source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2933534/)

    Personally speaking, after 25 years of cigarettes from age 9 to 34 when I switched to vaping I’ve seen my lung capacity sky rocket all by itself, and then with regular training I ran a half marathon (13 miles) last year – all thanks to vaping. However, my gums are still receding at the same rate as when I smoked and my blood pressure is still at pre-hyper tension levels. I’ll never go back to smoking, so go vaping for the win, but I’ve resolved to quit nicotine after my litre of 72mg nicotine runs out.

    I really like what you’ve done for me and thousands others but I think there is enough science to imply that nicotine in vapes isn’t consequence-free or a long-term lifestyle choice so I’d love to see what you could do with a message for winding down our nicotine levels. Sucks to be a downer but maybe look in to those points.
