    @andrewsb Good news. They don’t add any of those things because they don’t need too. No need for it as they don’t need help to burn like tobacco does. No burning involved. You can speculate all you like about what’s in them but in general almost everything used has been proven safe. They’ve been pretty good at self regulating so far.

    Vaping is 95% safer than smoking and doesn’t get kids hooked, claims Public Health England

    Public Health England have come around to my view that vaping is something the health profession ought to be advocating rather than scare mongering about:

    E-cigarettes should be on sale in hospital shops, health body says

    @gutted No!
    I read it as saying that the majority of vapors were smokers and that half of them have given up tobacco smoking completely and the other half do both.

    Yes, there are vapors who have never smoked but I think that they are a small number.

    I agree e cigs sounds a like a great alternative for smokers wanting to quit smoking. But what about young people who have never smoked before and see vaping as a trendy thing and get an addiction because of the trend?

    @garygary That doesn’t seem to be the case.

    Far better they see vaping as trendy than see smoking as trendy as was the case in the past.

    Overall it seems vapers are mostly smokes becoming vapers rather than non-smokers becoming vapers.

    “More than half of the nearly-three million people in Britain who vape are ex-smokers who have given up smoking tobacco, a new survey suggests.”

    Had I continued smoking them, fags would probably have shortened my life by about ten years as I had smoked them for about thirty years.

    Two and a half years ago I exchanged them for an e cig. I’m still a nicotine addict but I can feel the difference in the delivery method every day in my lack of cough, higher fitness, skin condition, dental health and so on.

    Nicotine is highly addictive but probably only mildly harmful.

    Vaping will improve the lives and extend the lives of millions of people who would otherwise be unable to stop smoking because they can’t overcome the addiction.

    They are in France. A perfectly fine country.

    Indeed. A refugee is supposed to seek asylum in the first safe country they reach, not continue to another of choice.

    I’m no cook but it seems to me that curry evolved as a way of covering the taste of meat that was past its best before refrigeration. It also seems that you are not going to get the spices to infuse the meat by searing it and caramelising the outside, which is done in western meat cooking to seal in the moisture. One of the most delicious spicy recipes I ever tasted called for chicken to be scored so as to open it up then splashed with lemon juice, salt, curry sauce and yoghurt, left for a few hours then baked in the marinade. It had a tart spiciness that really set the taste buds tingling. In essence I think Indian cooking is all about getting the spices to penetrate the meat and the additives like yoghurt and lemon juice to tenderise it.

    The reason he’s being called a racist is context – this is hardly a one off incident, rather a continuation of 40 years of racist activities. I suppose you can make an argument that he has an absolute contempt for poor people, compounded by being a germophobe, but generally people go with racist. It’s not just democrats, a lot of republicans think he is too.

    an observation , where do you get your us politics from – US media, or via uk, Australian sources? The latter is quite filtered – the US sites are the places to go.
