Vitamin C and another drug may combine to limit smoking’s assault on lungs

 ...an interesting turn away from the anti-harm reduction/quit or die rhetoric that we have grown accustomed to hearing from proponents of health:



Treatment with vitamin C and the nitric oxide synthase inhibitor
decreased the expression of nitric oxide synthases to levels comparable
to the control animals. This means that the joint treatment returned the
expression of these proteins to almost the same levels seen in tissues
that haven’t been exposed to cigarette smoke. In fact, treated animals
had a decrease in whole-lung nitric oxide generation from between 59 and
86 percent.

Hybrid device delivers tobacco flavors with e-cig like vapor


For those smokers who would like to make the switch away from smoking towards an alternative, but that have not found e-cigarettes (as currently defined) to be satisfactory, this may be of interest. It looks interesting to me and as far as I'm concerned, the more choices the better.


A reduction of at least 98% for all 29 compounds was recorded for both glo iFUSE and Vype ePen, compared to the reference cigarette.

In most cases, the vapour produced by the hybrid product, glo iFUSE, was indistinguishable from that produced by the e-cigarette.
