Electronic cigarettes, which contain electronic tubes that produce nicotine vapor to simulate the effects of smoking, don't appear to be as harmful to the heart as real cigarettes, a small-scale study has found. The results should be positive for manufacturers of the battery-powered products, including Lorillard (LO).

    Great so now there is a ' more healthy ' way to smoke. Excellent - but does it carry the same kudos of puffing away on a real one. Can kids show off to their friends ? Can they say - hey - have one of mine ?
    I sincerely hope this works as addiction is a terrible thing. Recent surveys show that children start smoking as young as 8 years old. Surely it's time for some serious education for children rather than giving them something else to puff on but where would be the profits in that.

    how about a small intravenous device that provides nicotine directly to the bloodstream? Surely the manufacturers of insulin pumps could come up with one. Get busy, Philip Morris!

    the idea is to quit,not to put something else between your lips that tastes terrible and only makes you want a real cigarette.
