Electronic Cigarettes, Congress and Change. Is this good?
Hey again its Dawn, and today we are going to go over how CHANGE has effected our lives and how changing our nicotine delivery methods can massively impact our lives.
Last week we reported on a 800-study systematic review commissioned by the US Congress. That review had some really amazing things to say.
“There is conclusive evidence that completely substituting e-cigarettes for combustible tobacco cigarettes reduces users’ exposure to numerous toxicants and carcinogens present in combustible tobacco cigarettes.”
“There is moderate evidence that risk and severity of dependence are lower for e-cigarettes than combustible tobacco cigarettes.”
“There is substantial evidence that completely switching from regular use of combustible tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes results in reduced short-term adverse health outcomes in several organ systems.”
As an industry we have had a chance to watch as different studies and evidence regarding e-cigarettes comes to light. We have watched as the nicotine delivery world has change more in the last 11 years then it has in the 200 years before this last decade. So we know that change in nicotine delivery is happening but change can be hard. Even when it is for the better. Let’s take a look at other changes that have happened in history and how those changes have helped us as a whole, and how some of those changes were met with some pretty steep resistance.
First lets look at a few ways change has helped us in every day life. How do the changes in technology contribute to the progression of our quality of life? Well, through out history change has been met with adversity. Is that because change is bad? Well no. Actually, in a lot of cases, change is not only good, its amazing. Take for-instance changes in medicine, can you imagine if every day medical treatments still required these tools. ⇓
So updated medical equipment technology = A good change!
Fun Fact: Did you know the camera phone almost never got invented? When the first series of Consumer Testers were shown the camera phone over and over the groups stated that people would never by a phone camera combo. They thought the idea was to “out there” and odd to sell and that consumers would not be interested in this technological change and that the product would never catch on….Let’s see if they were right, by show of hands who all owns a camera phone? You can see from these examples that change can be very good. If that’s true though, why then do some people resist change soooo much? In the case of automobiles, it was mostly big corporation stopping advancements in an effort to line their own pockets. LOL, yes back in the 1800’s the horse and buggy industry was considered a BIG corporation, huge in fact. Much like some experts believe big tobacco and big pharmacy is currently doing to the electronic cigarette industry as a whole. It’s not hard to see why big corporations like these would resist change. Could it be that change like this impacts their big profits maybe?
Change is something we naturally resist. There are steps we see taking place in the electronic cigarette industry that are working to help people understand that there is no need for fear on this change in nicotine delivery. Much like upgrades of the past we are just taking a product or idea and making it better.
We know some people can’t change or at least have a really hard time with it. I mean there are still people that only use the horse and buggy to get around instead of a car, not many though because it’s pretty clear to most of us which product does the job better.
If you have seen my other post then you already know that A Clean Cigarette is what we consider to be a technological update to the tar ridden burning tobacco cigarette. Remember you are still using a nicotine deliver mechanism, just a 21st century model instead of the 1900’s model.
Here is something to consider.
If that is the case then it is definitely time to meet the resistance head on.
It is time for those of use seeking nicotine to stand up and make room for change.
