(..) Fortunately, e-cigarettes are disrupting the government’s fuzzy math. In fact, e-cigarettes have become more effective than traditional nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in helping smokers quit. Keep in mind, the government also applies its nonsensical mathematical approach to NRT via massive subsidies. To understand the less harm produced by e-cigarettes compared to traditional cigarettes, one needs to simply look at the numbers — after all, they say that numbers never lie. For starters, combustible cigarettes contain nearly 600 ingredients. When burned, combustible cigarettes emit “more than 7,000 chemicals.” By the way, cigarettes include ammonia and magnesium carbonate, which “has a role as an antacid and a fertilizer.” Even worse, chemicals in cigarette smoke include acetone, butane, and formaldehyde.
