The Effects of Flavoring Our E-liquid
Researchers from Philadelphia have investigated the effects of added flavors in e-cig liquids. They started the research in light of finding out why ’kids’ find vaping so appealing; they suggest that added flavors may play a big factor. The researchers took the most common e-liquid flavor additives and mixed them into different flavors. The concocted flavors were then tested by individuals who rated them from -11 for unpleasant to +11 for pleasant. The result suggested that the research was inconclusive and that taste motivated none of the people who participated.

School is Back Vaping is NOT
Students will be heading back to school soon, and many faculty members across the country would like to remind students and parents that vaporizers are prohibited from school grounds. At Tyngsboro High School they treat vaping the same as tobacco. Vaping among teens is rising, and the information on the effects of vaping are sparse, so schools treat it the same as tobacco.

Vape Batteries are Still Exploding
A man is suing the shop he purchased a spare battery from because it had exploded and left him with many burns to his lower body. This is not the first case of vape batteries exploding, back in February of 2016 a man at a local gas station was burnt when his e-cig battery exploded covering his legs and pants with fiery battery acid. In 2014 The U.S. Fire Administration found that only 25 instances of batteries had exploded between 2009 and 2014, 80% of which occurred while charging. The results on why exactly vape batteries explode are not clear, but you can take proper measures to decrease the likelihood of it happening to you.

The response from people on twitter was broad with many of the tweets poking fun at the teens.
