Warnings issued by big tobacco and big pharma about the dangers of are not grounded in scientific reality or backed by scientific research. After a study in mice at the University of ’s Billings Hospital in 1942, it was thought that when inhaled might cause such as and other illnesses affecting the system. To determine long term effects followup studies on money and other animals were conducted. This larger study produced results that showed no ill effects from in the lungs.
Shouting ”danger”, the and tobacco companies point to an ingredient that has proven through many years of use. The misinformation about ignores one very important fact. We know are safer than tobacco products when inhaled. We know smoking almost anything is safer than smoking tobacco.
In propylene glycol is used to dilute the nicotine and provide a solution that can be vaporized and deliver nicotine to the e-smoker. PG is a commonly used food additive and is the substance used in fog machines. It also appears on the label of ingredients of many of the food products we routinely buy.
It is interesting that the many cautions about propylene glycol found online are not found on scientific or medical sites or referenced as articles in scientific journals. The dire warnings are on conspiracy blogs, natural healing sites and on the sites of anti-smoking groups. Several entries claim that propylene glycol is antifreeze. No. Not true. That would be ethylene glycol.
A fantastic amount of information can be found online but it’s important to know who you are listening when accepting information as fact. Baby wipes contain PG and it’s difficult to imagine the making claims that a product freely allowed for use on infants is now unsafe for adults. The PG delivered to the user by the electronic cigarettes is minimal. Some e-liquid suppliers use glycerol as a base for their nicotine solution rather than propylene glycol.
Consumers are smart to closely examine ingredients in the products they eat or inhale. We have all become more educated about food additives that may cause problems even as they add healthy color. We know to check for a variety of terms when looking for low sugar product as sucrose, fructose and various ”syrups” are alternate names for sugar.
The saccharin scare thirty years ago is a valuable example of the folly of acting on incomplete information and drawing incorrect conclusions. The banned saccharine which was a very popular sweetener used as an additive in many packaged foods and. The stated saccharin had caused in mice and panic ensued. Companies lost a lot of money in changing the ingredients in their products and the public tossed out boxes of Sweet and Low which was a popular saccharin product.
What the FDA didn’t tell the public was that the research did not apply to people. The mice had been given huge doses of saccharin daily. Adjusting the amount to that needed for a person to develop would require the person to consume at least 400 cans of diet cola every day for months. Today, saccharin is once again fully available for sale to the public.
The delivery of for users relies on the use of propylene glycol. The tobacco companies continue to spread false information about PG even though there is no scientific data to prove their claims
