Im curious if the reporter ended up quitting cigarettes? Myself and 4 of my family members quit smoking cigarettes within a day to a month of starting to vape. I also have tens of thousands of facebook twitter instagram and youtube "friends" whove also quit smoking with vaping. I myself tried everything i could find to quit smoking without success. The patches, lozenges, inhalers, medications, hypnosis, acupuncture, counseling, just any and everything i could find multiple times without success. The day i got my 1st vape setup was the last day i smoked cigarettes. Ive been vaping almost 5 years now, ive lost about 20lbs, my high blood pressure is down, i can taste and smell better, i dont smell like smoke anymore nor my clothes car or house, my lungs sound like a non-smoker according to my doctor. Being that this was over a year ago, there has been dozens of studies showing that vaping is much safer than smoking. Is it 100% safe, no, NOTHING in life is 100% safe, but the royal college of physicians, you know that organization that told the fda and cdc back in the 60s that smoking was very bad for us before any other health organization, That royal college of physicians released a over 3 year study showing that vaping is upwards of 95 to 97% safer than smoking. So yeah im just curious if the woman doing the piece ended up vaping or has quit smoking. I know china is a HUGE HUGE HUGE smoking market and very very few people vaped in china even though most of the vaping products are made there.

Chairman Mao Incarnate: This is never getting out of China, maybe in the Arabs states particularly those who still live close to the land and still have links to tribal roots this could get pass the Western blanket monopoly, but in the US this is not going to take off. This could potentially eliminate the tobacco consumption of China and turn it into a strictly import package then export one because Chinese and Western companies get more profit from having an reusable and highly customization expensive hardware compared to primitive cheap tobacco, this becomes especially big if Chinese Doctors start monopolizing the prescription basis vapor mixtures. The Chinese Medical Industry can utilize this one and regulate the vapors I'm more interested in having a menthol vapor, the greatest advantage of menthol is it muffles heat giving the impression that it gets inside the body at normal temperature. Listen up to the medical industry their is a 50 % chance that I am right on this one and could give a new meaning to high but without any side effect. The key is in the effect of menthol on the body, problem is the body has to adjust to menthol thus making it a mere glancing experience like a sense of touch, like touching something cold, but what if thru modern technology heat is mix and carried into the menthol as it disperses into vapor and then boom it hits the respiratory system, the muffled heat would cause a high sensation as its effect hits when it mixes and liquefies back into the respiratory tissues. To transform a liquid form of menthol into something breathable some vapor and energy is needed. The Chinese Medical Industry could greatly benefit from this not just in real hands on technology, innovation and manufacturing during the product development but also a quick and direct product sold to consumers on a regular bases instead of just waiting for years for people to get cancer from cigarette smoking most of which just die without even participating in the medical system. This would increase the independence of the Chinese Medical Industry from unknown Western drugs.

Yes. Getting started means no laws on vaping to this day, no age limit whatsoever and that equals to a happy teenager. High school students would love this place because you can buy Juul pods wherever you want.

The doctor in this video is 100% full of shit. Claiming e-cigs and vaping is healthier than tobacco? Organic tobacco free of chemicals and additives is not unhealthy contrary to popular opinions. The naive Americans used various strains of tobacco for centuries and even used it as a health aid for lung congestion. Vape juice contains high levels of toxic metals and artificial ingredients. I’ll take 100% natural tobacco any day over anything artificial.
Chairman Meow (1 month ago)
If you burn anything organic, you will release toxins, carcinogens etc like carbon monoxide to name one. Dont believe that? Retake your chemistry class. Inhalation of fumes, gasses and smokes from combustion has long been an obsolete way of medicating with advancements in science giving way to much more efficient alternatives with fewer health risks. Ingredients in eliquids are vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, nicotine and food grade flavoring. You can do your research on these ingredients. So far vaping has been proven to be far safer than cigarettes especially on short term. But the truth is, we do not have any studies on the long term effects of vaping since its fairly new. But we can be sure it will not be as grave as tobacco smoking natural or not, because chemistry.
dkieslovski (1 month ago)
it's a poor and superficial documentary! why not speak about the new resources these machines require, ie rare metals that you might only find in China or in Africa?
Kennon Rose (2 months ago)
She seemed to give a pretty accurate summary of vaping. However, I think there’s far more people who use vaping to quit. Vaping can be better than going cold turkey because you can gradually become used to less and less nicotine and even vape without nicotine until the mental cravings go away.

Vaping isn't "cool" anymore. The only people who thought it was cool were the people doing it - and they thought they were cool anyway. So funny watching vapers disappear in a cloud of their newly-chosen addiction. Just another way to hook young impressionable wannabes on nicotine. So incredibly stupid and not at all cool.

You all have no idea the market of China. Let me guide you. Cigarettes in China are cheap from US$0.80 to US$5 per packet (20sticks) Vape products are taxed heavily and the same mod is 50% more expensive than USA

TBQH vaping nicotine is stupid when lozenges exist, but the device AvE rightly refers to as a "douche flute" (++ for Canadian bantz!) sells very well so kudos to China for making what the public want to buy!

American juice is the best in the world. No one buys juice from China. Juice is the most profitable industry in Vaping. American and Philippines make the best vapes, along with France and uk. Squonking is mostly a UK France thing that has blown up

I used to smoke cigarettes for about 8-9years before I started vaping, I bought one not intending on quitting just to see what all the hype was about. Now it’s been almost 2years and the transition from not smoking cigarettes to vaping was so easy for me. I didn’t even have to try lol. But I don’t think it’s cool! Honestly I feel like a fucking hipster douche when I vape, but I feel so much better, don’t stink like cigarettes etc.
