Just published this week. The Wall Street Journal (7/9) reports U.S. adult smokers who did not use electronic vaping devices to aid in smoking cessation were more than twice as likely to quit smoking as those who did, a new study published in PLOS One concludes. The study also found that 90 percent of smokers who vaped at the start of the study were still smoking a year later. The researchers said they did not find evidence that vaping devices helped adult smokers quit at higher rates than those who did not use the products. The Washington Times (7/9) reports “e-cigarettes are an ineffective tool for smoking cessation,” the survey of 858 smokers suggests. The article says “more and more research has found that e-cigarette use isn’t a reliable path to quitting cigarettes.” Reply Maria lopez :P September 13, 2019 You should ask Jaiden Animations for your Draw My Life!! 😁 Reply Killer Kale September 13, 2019 I had braces twice too…. hated it so much! Reply MrAudienceMember September 13, 2019 7:35 ear cleaning… My partner used to occasionally pour a bit of peroxide into his ear and lay down for a while. He said it loosened the wax so he could rinse it out in the shower. I was and still am skeptical of this. Reply Saiman No September 13, 2019 A pretty good way to stop hiccups. Take a mouthful of water (or any liquid), don't swallow. Bend forward at the waist as far as possible then swallow. Hiccups gone. Reply S Miller September 14, 2019 So, a year on in, and this "vaping" issue is now extremely relevant. Vaping is now considered to be 3x more harmful than tobacco cigarettes.

Reply Emily_ Gross September 14, 2019 YES! The sugar DOES work. Reply Liz Tukenmez September 15, 2019 Oh my god…you are citing the Wall Street Journal and Washington Times as sources to support your position on vaping?? And exactly which PLOS One article did you read because I found at least a dozen articles about vaping on their website. The US has completely ignored long term studies from other countries, like the UK, that clearly state vaping is a far less harmful than smoking. Additionally, vaping has been shown to be the most effective nicotine replacement device for people who are trying to quit smoking. The US is a full decade behind vaping research, largely due to influence and interference by tobacco companies who are paying for negative ad campaigns as their sales are declining. You obviously didn't do your research, you cited newspaper articles with no references and didn't bother to post a link to any peer reviewed studies. Shame on you!! Listening to you regurgitate the same garbage found in anti vaping commercials makes me so happy I have a doctor who actually knows how to research a subject. Unsubscribed… Reply SolPhoebusApollo September 16, 2019 Omg, I can always cure my hiccups with a spoonful of sugar too! I have met people who that doesn’t work for and I don’t know why. Reply Kajal Kamble September 16, 2019 Why do man have nipple?https://youtu.be/8DnHyn_QgOE Reply artsridley September 16, 2019 To Tiffany,The reason why men have nipples is because whilst the embryo is in the womb, the sex is always female and within a few months later, the Y chromosomes kick in and the body grows its genitalia and other pieces but keeps the nipples due to where the woman's breast would have developed during puberty and there is actually a muscle which allows men to lactate – which is the process which women use to breastfeed the baby. I am not sure if I am right but either way, I hope this has helped.

Reply Emerald SarahBelle E. September 18, 2019 One time while in the hospital I got a bad fit of the hiccups. (not the reason I was in the hospital btw) Every hiccup made my back pain worse though, so I desperately wanted it to stop. One of the nurses gave me a spoon and a snack packet of 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, don’t know how but that stopped the hiccups. That nurse deserves a raise.

This was the first time I've ever been in hospital or had a drip. I've recently noticed this red bump on my arm sort of similar to an inflamed pimple where the needle was and want to know if i should be worried or should I go see a doctor?It's not painful or getting any bigger or smaller.Please help. Thanks Reply Andi Molloy September 26, 2019 Yes that’s like me I’m perfectly fine with blood and stuff like if I see someone with a huge deep cut I’m not arsed or if I watch a horror film and people look away at the bloody/gory parts I look even closer but I have a horrible gag reflex and I had braces so I know exactly what you mean with the moulds but I get it with my retainers you know those clear plastic ones if I bite down I feel the retainers on the back of my throat and it’s the worst thing ever 🤢😷 Reply Lars VanKessel September 26, 2019 Propylene Glycol DOES NOT and CAN NOT cause popcorn lung.Popcorn lung is a deadly form of COPD that happens when inhaling diketones like diacetyl or Acetylpropionyl.It has ABSOLUTELY ZERO to do with propylene glycol.It's also virtually impossible to get popcorn lung from vaping e-liquids as responsible manufacturers do not use it, and the ones that do use it – use it at levels below workplace exposure limits. In fact, cigarettes (the product that vaping replaces with a massive harm reduction) contain much more diacetyl than any e-liquid on the market. If you are going to play doctor, please get your facts straight!

I warn others as well of the factors that vaping causes Reply paige mclachlan September 27, 2019 Doctor mikeeeeeee what causes itches?? Both naturally and with bug bites and stuff Reply Rachel 5 September 27, 2019 With all the illnesses and deaths being linked to vaping now, I came to see what Dr. Mike was saying about vaping a year ago, and not surprisingly, spot on! Thank you for bringing unbiased, evidence- based info and presenting it in a fun way! Reply Yeascy AlDiazz September 27, 2019 Hey, I knew that boys have nipples since 6th grade. So boys have nipples because when a mother is pregnant, the first 4 months, the baby is a female since the mother is a female and the nipples would be for a women until the gender is fully accurate. So the baby for 4 month is a girl intell the genitals are growing into place to tell the actual gender. That is why males have nipples. Also, a male can lactate just like a female when pregnant because there can be a tumor in their hormonal area in the brain….that's is all I know. Hope it's accurate and hope it helped 👁️👄👁️ Reply sydney phil0623 September 28, 2019 is there a position as a doctor that would not trigger a squeamish person for instance dealing with blood, vomit, needles etc. Reply sydney phil0623 September 28, 2019 the general concept of the yanny/laurel recording has to do with age because younger people are usually able to hear higher pitched sounds (yanny) and your sense of hearing deteriorates over time as you get older, limiting you to only lower pitched sounds (laurel) which is why its discouraged to listen to your music too loud or use headphones too often, which can speed up the process (how do u not know this lol your a doctor) Reply TEAtimesTHREEE September 28, 2019 Omg I just heard yanny lmao Reply Cerberus 666 September 28, 2019 I vape to get off smoking 3 packs a day Reply Sy Luckaiii September 28, 2019 when i was little i kept shoving my finger down my throat because i wanted to gag no i never vomited because of itbut i do have emetophobia lol Reply Courtney Rodifer September 29, 2019 Do you have a significant other or plan to get married/start dating soon? Reply ZALGO September 29, 2019 @Jazza Reply Zexonyte September 29, 2019 A spoonful of sugar helps me get rid of hiccups as well. I've heard that the reason this works is because the sugar stimulates the vagus nerve and interrupts the spasm. Drinking water is supposed to accomplish the same thing, but it's never worked for me. Different things probably work differently for everyone. Reply Mariam Akerman September 29, 2019 Ask jazza or amazing YouTuber Kelsie or drawing with waffles :))) they are the best most positive and talented ppl, Reply Premium Munitions September 29, 2019 I just want to say my experience with vaping. I smoked cigarettes for over 22 years, i've been vaping now for almost 10 years (Only reputable e-liquids from reputable vape shops). I feel fantastic and life feels amazing to me now. When I smoked cigarettes, I never felt as good as I do now.I feel very healthy and just fine. My breathing and lungs feel very flowing and clear.To my understanding, the vapor from reputable e-liquids is water soluble and to me it feels like my lungs have no issue at all with normal natural vacating of excess vape residue in my lungs (if there even is any vape residue). Tar from cigarettes does not vacate from the lungs as fast and easy.My advice is if you vape, make sure you know for sure what you're vaping, you can't just vape anything, it's the same as you can't just eat anything. And definitely don't vape oils (because oils are not water soluble and will most likely coat inside your lungs).Only vape e-liquids purchased from reputable vape shops, never vape black market e-liquids.Vaping has been a God send for me and is a brilliant life saving technology.

(I discovered you from Glam n Gore, so glad I did!) Reply Hedwig The grey cockatiel September 30, 2019 My grandpa smoked a packet a day and died before I met him. My dad said waking up and hearing him coughing in the morning put him off smoking. My mum and grandma smoked as well.

Wouldn't that result in the person consuming more tobacco? And even if someone vapes a liquid that doesn't have nicotine in it, doesn't it flood your lungs in the long run?

Xx Reply Chelle Soutiere October 13, 2019 That's all I'm going to say is PG is all e-juice it's not flavors. It was Diacetyl that they claimed caused popcorn lung which used to b in flavoring however isn't and hasn't been for years. Also I watched your other vaping video. The ingredients for e-juice hasn't changed in 10 yrs. Adults like flavors. The reason there are so many is that 1 might wrk for some1 while another person needs a different 1. Remember everyones taste buds r different. E-juice started out being made in ppls kitchen not in a factory. So it wasn't made with oh let's get kids addicted. Vaping nicotine came out years before Juul just remember that. Yes they are a vape company but only a piece to the puzzle. Oh also e-juice is water soluble. So no vitamin e there.. Wouldn't mix.

Reply Tina Roberts October 15, 2019 Dr. Mike, I did not know about your channel until today when Mama Dr. Jones mentioned you. I am disappointed in your uninformed statements about vaping. Certainly, breathing nothing but the purest, cleanest mountain air is best for everyone. However, it has been proven in study after study that vaping is at least 95% less harmful than smoking combustible tobacco products. Millions of smokers who were unsuccessful at quitting using the myriad of smoking cessation devices, gums, and medications available over numerous attempts, have been able to successfully quit with vaping. When I quit my 35 year smoking habit on my 3rd day of vaping, I also joined several FB vape groups. Over the years I have read thousands of stories similar to my own. These support groups help those who are struggling and continue to smoke while vaping. The solution is for the person to find the right combination of vape device, flavor of e-liquid, and nicotine strength that is satisfying for them. I was fortunate and had a wonderful lady at local vape shop who spent over an hour helping me try all sorts of combinations until I really liked it. I liked the desert flavors at first, like cinnamon bun, coconut macaroon, and then moved on to blueberry lemonade and grapefruit and maraschino cherry. The media is being used to drive a false narrative about vaping that benefits the interests of the states who depend on tobacco sales tax revenues that are dwindling, big tobacco companies and the huge pharmaceutical industry. Here's the deal, Dr. Mike. Many smokers are more addicted to the habit of smoking than they are to the 4000+ chemicals BIG Tobacco companies add to cigarettes to keep us smoking. We are orally fixated creatures who need that hand to mouth when we are at the computer, sipping coffee, watching TV or driving. That's the habit that is so hard to break. Vaping satisfies that. Many of us never really liked the taste of cigarettes, the smell on our hair or clothes or in our homes. Vaping tastes nice, it smells nice, it doesn't stink up the house or the car, it doesn't make your hands or teeth yellowed. Nicotine, while addictive, is addictive in much the same way as caffeine is. Nicotine has numerous health benefits as well as some contraindications for certain individuals. Please read studies that have been produced in the UK. They do not have a medical community that thrives on the diseases caused by smoking. They do not have Big Pharma depending on those diseases. The NIH wants people to be healthier because it's cheaper. The NIH recommends vaping as an alternative to smoking. As for the kid angle, responsible e-liquid manufacturers do not create labels to target children. That said, the flavors are the important part of success in quitting smoking. The labels are going to graphically represent the flavor to some degree. Kids have been finding a way to obtain cigarettes and smoke them since they were available. If vaping had been available in the 80's-90's when I was raising my kids, I most certainly would have preferred them to vape than smoke if they felt the need to do one or the other. Bottom line…. Please do not buy into and use your celebrity status to spread false information. Reply Alexis Flory October 16, 2019 Iv'e not tried sugar, but at my house we try pickles. That works for some reason.
