I am a Vaper NOT a Smoker and as such I take offense to comments in the media and from the WHO that vaping is as bad as smoking during this pandemic because of the nicotine content.
WHO as an organisation are anti-vaping anyway and talk rubbish about it in all the media I have seen and even the British Medical Association (BMA) disagree with them.
The e-liquid I use, I make myself which until recently was about 3-4.5% nicotine with 15ml flavouring and the remainder is about 85ml VG (vegetable Glycerine), I do not use Propylene Glycol (PG) in my juices.. In the last few week’s I have dropped down to about 0.5% nicotine, this is due to running out and not because I want to reduce my nicotine intake, from my perspective nicotine seems to be a flavour enhancer as well.
Nt. Propylene Glycol is heavily used by the food industry and should not be confused with Ethylene Glycol which is mainly used for two purposes, as a raw material in the manufacture of polyester fibers and for antifreeze formulations.
In many countries where vaping is legal the nicotine aspect in the e-liquid is not there.
Anyway getting to the point in addition to vaping being ‘super bad’ and the stupid fake news of drinking alcohol will stop covid-19 It got me thinking, why not vape alcohol ?
It is known the covid-19 is very susceptible to alcohol but with the catch of it will most likely kill you in the quantities required to have an effect, there have been reported deaths around the world of people dying from alcohol poisoning some from consuming the wrong type (Iran 27 deaths I think from drinking industrial alcohol as ‘ethyl alcohol: food grade ethanol’ is illegal there)
Vaping it does seem on the surface to be the sensible way to go but as much as we would all like a quick fix it’s not that simple, by vaping it the risk of alcohol poisoning is actually increased because it goes straight into you lungs, then you blood stream and finally the brain, so inhaling the right amount to avoid this would be extremely important but would appear to have the desired effect.
For example in the 1950’s Alcohol Vapor was used via Inhalation in the Treatment of Acute Pulmonary Edema https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/abs/10.1161/01.cir.5.3.363 but is no longer used in favour of more expensive treatments.
This research paper makes me think I am on the right track.
This NHS link is factual and for peace of mind and not the tripe that the WHO and Johns Hopkins are peddling.
The video in the NHS link is an eye opener.
