Posted on 7th Aug 2009 @ 4:26 PM

Lab test and Diethylene Glycol (DEG) free

Precision Testing Labs - NJDEP Certified In response to the recent FDA report that found Diethylene Glycol in cartridges from our competitiors. We are pleased to announce that a recent third party analysis of the eSmoke cartridges was found to be free of DEG.

The FDA's report also backed up it's initial statement that e-cigarettes are no safer than real ones in an attempt to scare electronic cigarette users into returning to real cigarettes by alarming them about the carcinogens detected in the product, without telling them that that the levels were no higher than in nicotine replacement products and that they are 1400 times lower than in Marlboros.

Dr. Michael Siegel, a professor in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Department, Boston University School of Public Health with over 20 years of experience in tobacco control, primarily as a researcher stated in his blog titled "The Rest of the Story: Tobacco News Analysis and Commentary" the levels of carcinogens found in the Electronic Cigarette compared to traditional FDA approved NRTs and real cigarettes. His numbers based on scientific findings showed the following:

Maximum Tobacco-Specific Nitrosamine Levels in Various
Cigarettes and Nicotine-Delivery Products (ng/g, except for nicotine gum and patch which are ng/patch or ng/gum piece)
Electronic Cigarette 3.87 1.46 2.16 0.693 8.183
