Summary of the Proposed New Rules for those not wanting to read the entire 241 page regulation.

Our thanks to Lindsay Fox on ecigarettereviewed.com.

•E-cigarettes cannot be sold to minors (aged under 18).

•Pre-approval or substantial equivalence determinations (equivalent to a product marketed in the US before February 15th, 2007) must be provided for all new e-cigarette products and all existing products.

•Free samples of e-cigarette products will be banned.

•Health warnings must be displayed stating that nicotine is an addictive drug.

•Full ingredients listing and reporting of harmful and potentially harmful constituents required.

•Companies are only allowed to make direct or implied claims of reduced risk if the FDA agrees that scientific evidence supports the claim (to clarify, the FDA is currently unsure whether e-cigarettes are safer than tobacco cigarettes), and that marketing of the product would be beneficial to public health as a whole.

•Vending machines selling e-cigs (or other tobacco products) can only be placed in locations where youths aren’t permitted.

•No ban on flavorings.

•No ban on advertising.

•No ban on online sales (to adults).

•Following 75 day public comment period, the final rule will be published and age restrictions will come into effect 30 days later. Other requirements (such as health warnings) will not come into effect until two years after final publication of the rule.

•Companies will have two years from the final publication of the rules to submit substantial equivalence or premarket approval applications, and products can remain on the market at least until the applications have been responded to.

•The regulation is generally open-ended, meaning further rules (such as restrictions on flavors, for example) could be introduced in the future as separate measures.

Gutfeld: Government's Kneejerk Reaction to e-Cigs? Ban 'em!

The FIVE host Greg Gutfeld slammed the 'kneejerk orthodoxy' of the government's movements toward banning e-Cigarettes.

"When an industry arrives for the making, government arrives for the taking," he said.

The Time of Israel reported the following:

"Police on Tuesday launched an investigation into possible negligence after doctors were unable to save the life of a young girl who died from drinking liquid nicotine on Tuesday. 

Naomi Elbaz, just two and a half, collapsed at her parents home in the ultra-Orthodox Beit Yisrael neighborhood of Jerusalem.  

A Magen David Adom ambulance crew tried to resuscitate the girl who was found in a dazed state. After stabilizing her pulse, they evacuated her to the nearby Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus. However, the youngster’s condition rapidly deteriorated and she was transferred to the Hadassah Hospital in Ein Kerem for further treatment. Despite desperate efforts by doctors, she eventually died.

Initial reports said that Elbaz’s parents were not with her when she drank the liquid and she was being watched over by her grandparents. At some point the toddler, an only child, went to her grandfather’s room and drank from a small bottle of liquid nicotine that he used to refill his electronic cigarette. The bottle was sent to a police laboratory for tests to determine exactly what was in the liquid."

Please keep your e-liquid carefully stored where it cannot be accessed by children (or pets).

Can Propylene Glycol commonly found in Electronic Cigarettes help fight pneumonia, influenza and other respiratory diseases?

Please note: liquid in an electronic cigarette primary ingredient is Propylene Glycol

Medicine: Air Germicide 
 Original link, Time,CNN http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,932876,00.html
 Monday Nov. 16, 1942

 A powerful preventive against pneumonia, influenza and other respiratory diseases may be promised by a brilliant series of experiments conducted during the last three years at the University of Chicago’s Billings Hospital. Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson last week was making final tests with a new germicidal vapor—propylene glycol—to sterilize air.

If the results so far obtained are confirmed, one of the age-old searches of man will finally achieve its goal.

This venture gave promising results, but all such research lapsed for another decade. Within the last few years, several research groups (notably the University of Pennsylvania’s new Air-Borne Disease Laboratories) again began testing various sprays. Many chemicals were found to kill airborne micro-organisms quickly, even in concentrations as low as one gram of chemical per 500 cu. ft. of air.

Trouble was that all these air germicides smelled bad, or were toxic, or irritated the respiratory tract. Dr. Robertson’s propylene glycol vapor is odorless, tasteless, nontoxic, non-irritating, cheap, highly bactericidal.

Its discovery was accidental. Dr. Robertson and his colleagues were trying out another possible germicide—a detergent or “soapless soap” (similar to Dreft, Aerosol and other products widely sold for household and industrial use). Water solutions of the detergent were only mildly effective, so the researchers tried solutions of detergents in propylene glycol, which is a sort of thin glycerin.

Results were much better. Then the researchers found that the propylene glycol itself was a potent germicide. One part of glycol in 2,000,000 parts of air would—within a few seconds—kill concentrations of air-suspended pneumococci, streptococci and other bacteria numbering millions to the cubic foot.

How did it work? Respiratory disease bacteria float about in tiny droplets of water breathed, sneezed and coughed from human beings. The germicidal glycol also floats in infinitesimally small particles.

Calculations showed that if droplet had to hit droplet, it would take two to 200 hours for sterilization of sprayed air to take place. Since sterilization took place in seconds, Dr. Robertson concluded that the glycol droplets must give off gas molecules which dissolve in the water droplets and kill the germs within them.

Dr. Robertson placed groups of mice in a chamber and sprayed its air first with propylene glycol, then with influenza virus. All the mice lived. Then he sprayed the chamber with virus alone. All the mice died.

Propylene glycol is harmless to man when swallowed or injected into the veins. It is also harmless to mice who have breathed it for long periods. But medical science is cautious—there was still a remote chance that glycol might accumulate harmfully in the erect human lungs which, unlike those of mice, do not drain themselves.

So last June Dr. Robertson began studying the effect of glycol vapor on monkeys imported from the University of Puerto Rico’s School of Tropical Medicine. So far, after many months’ exposure to the vapor, the monkeys are happy and fatter than ever. Dr. Robertson does not expect mankind to live, like his monkeys, continuously in an atmosphere of glycol vapor; but it should be most valuable in such crowded places as schools and theaters, where most respiratory diseases are picked up.
