Dr. Farsalinos Research Results


Remember the research study being done by Dr. Farsalinos? The results are finally published. We already knew from Dimitris Agrafiotis’ teasers on Smoke Free Radio that a large portion of these juices tested had Diacetyl and Acetyl Propionyl, which is considered an ‘Avoidable Risk’. I knowingly vape juices that contain Diacetyl… I sort of talk myself into it each time. “Well, you smoked for 25 years… this wont hurt ya”.

I realize that its an avoidable risk, but is it a risk worth taking? Do you think this gives ANTZ more fuel? What do you think?

Here’s a link to the PDF released.

PS: Still waiting for the amounts and list of juices.

TLDR: DA and AP were found in a large proportion of sweet-flavored EC liquids, at levels that were higher than the strictest safety limits but significantly lower compared to smoking. The presence of these chemicals in EC liquids represents an avoidable risk. Proper measures should be taken by EC liquid manufacturers and flavoring suppliers to eliminate these hazards from the products, without necessarily limiting the availability of sweet flavors.

Overly critical token female here to break up the sausage fest. 4 year vaper/advocate into High End Gear. I dislike vapers who legitimately want to be Vape-Famous, flippers, and Cloners (not clone users). But... I wont date guys who use Clones or Protanks, so don't even bother.
