The American Heart Association weighs in on e-cigarettes


The American Heart Association acknowledges that e-cigarettes could be used successfully by smokers as a last measure to try and quit the practice.

Though the group falls pretty far short of endorsing the industry, the development could still be a boost for e-cig stocks which have the issue of potential regulation hanging over them.

    I personally find it nothing short of amazing that these particular health Nazis have allowed themselves to NOT be confused by FACTS.

     

    Mark my words, now we will see the rest of the health Nazis, including the pandering Politicians, conduct a witch hunt in the ranks of the American Heart Association.

    It's helped thousands quit smoking, maybe hundreds of thousands. Might help? Please. Today I was in a Texaco to fill up and went inside to pay, at the counter literally dozens of e-cigs, and e-juice flavors. It's mainstream and it's taking a good run at Marlboro and company. Watch it.
