Twisp in the tail

Mr Nose has a special soft spot in his heart for everyone who advertises in his illustrious organ (even those who simply take advantage of the free small ad offer that comes with their subscription renewal). But Mr Nose will definitely speak out when there's something not quite right in the ad.

I agree. I think Nose should have looked deeper into this.

Scientific American was somewhat disingenious in declaring that electronic cigarettes contain carcinogens and an ingredient used in antifreeze. What the alarmist report did not make clear is that the carcinogenic chemicals were found in concentrations 1400 times smaller than in normal cigarettes, i.e. trace amounts not considered harmful, and no more than are found in common foods and household materials. Moreover, these chemicals were only found in 5 of the 18 brands tested. As for the diethylene glycol - of 18 electronic cigarettes tested by the FDA only 1 was found to contain diethylene glycol at 1% concentration. This hardly warrants sensational headlines - are they suggesting cigarettes are safer?
