E-cigarette safety studies: No link here, because after some searching it appears that there are a number of conflicting studies about the safety of e-cigarettes. One oft-cited test found that e-cigarettes contained some amounts of carcinogens and other dangerous substances including a “chemical found in antifreeze”. It should be noted that the main “chemical found in antifreeze” is alcohol which is a poison in the right formulation and dosage. As we mentioned in the show itself caffeine and nicotine are also technically-poisonous substances that many people partake of every day without apparent injury.
We’re not qualified to make a judgement call on whether e-cigs are “safe” but we would caution against reading too much into statements which essentially boil down to “This product contains chemicals.” (I’m glaring at you anti-vaccine activists).

  1. My wild (on or around) Halloween night consisted of a tick bite. I discovered and dug it out of me in the wee hours of the 2nd. I greatly prefer a zombie-infested Halloween.

    My NaNo is dragging. Trying to figure out how to write a literary novel, psychological horror scenes keep creeping in.

  2. Listening to the Ron Perlman love part of this episode right now. LOL

    One of my personal favorite RP movies is Guillermo del Toro’s Cronos. If you haven’t already done it for the podcast, I think that movie would be a lot of fun.
