Apart From Refill Sustainability, What Are Other E-Cig Benefits?


This short article introduces readers to the benefits of acquiring e-cigarettes. One popular benefit is that of long-term sustainability. Because with appurtenances such as cartridge refills, these cigs never run out.  Before jumping to any conclusions over health benefits and such, it’s worth having a quick look at the e-cigarette revolution’s background.

Simply put, the e-cigarette was invented by the Chinese.

And today, one record has it that over three million US consumers had become certifiable e-cigarette smokers some years ago already. At the time of publishing this article, it has to be wondered just how many millions more have given up traditional tobacco smoking in favor of lighting up an (apparently) much healthier e-cig, sustainably, of course.

Of course, anti-smoking lobbies and health advocates are still not having anything to do with e-cigarette smoking and, still to this day, the US Surgeon General, among others around the globe, have yet to find conclusive evidence that confirms e-cigarette smoking as a serious hazard to people’s health in the same breath that traditional smoking was all those years ago. But to be quite honest, informed consumer choices can only be made once all e-cigarette pros and cons have been thoroughly examined.

A disclaimer then. No active encouragement is being given to both smokers and non-smokers to take up vaping or e-cigarette smoking. It’s just a statement of fact when observing that it does appear that all the listed pros do tend to outweigh the cons. And as far as the cons go, it’s just a matter of exercising common sense and the conscience in deciding whether or not to take up e-cigarette smoking. For instance, pregnant women should still not be smoking, not even an e-cigarette, whether it has nicotine included or not is beside the point. Also, people with serious heart ailments or diabetes, or any other serious illnesses or diseases, it has been advised, should not take up this trendy habit either.

While e-cigarettes in general do still contain nicotine, the volume thereof is substantially less than what would normally be included in a traditional tobacco cigarette. Also, e-cigs do not contain any of the poisonous toxic chemicals and tar usually included in the traditional cigarettes. It is also worth mentioning that committed smokers who turn to e-cigarettes are not suffocated by the emotional trauma of withdrawal symptoms that could lead to psychological scars usually associated with starving the body entirely of its smoking habit.

The argument that the dependency goes beyond the nicotine is valid. People who deprive themselves of cigarettes also miss the aesthetic languor and sense of relaxation they get from the act of smoking.

Here is an astounding piece of information. Studies have revealed that e-cigarette smoking could well improve the lives of millions of Americans who suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This against the backdrop of the startling statistic that states that this disease is the third highest cause of death of around ninety percent of habitual (tobacco) smokers.

Precious Gems – A Brief Introduction


precious gemstonessignificance of precious gemstones

Whether for prestige or aesthetic delight, many people enjoy wearing their jewelry. They will also wear priceless, precious jewelry on special occasions to mark important anniversaries. And perhaps not cast in stone entirely just yet as a popular habit or custom, there are those precious folks who have turned to precious gemstones as part of their décolletage or significant memorabilia. And what’s more, these special folks wear precious gemstones not just for sentimental reasons but, more importantly perhaps, for religious, spiritual and/or cultural reasons.

So, all this short note will be doing is giving interested readers a brief introduction. Highlights to be shared will be a quick look at one historic lore behind the promotion and use of these precious stones.

It would also be worthwhile making a remark on the importance of immersing yourself in a study of what you could call medicinal stones. You could do this alongside of your study of cultural beliefs that influence the wearing and using of these precious gemstones. A few years into the previous century, one George Kunz, a leading gemologist around that time, became something of a trailblazer in cutting the ice on precious stones as sentimental jewelry set pieces.

This gentleman’s legacy, you could just say, is rock-solid. One of his collections, the JP Morgan Tiffany collection, is currently being displayed in the American Museum of Natural History.

A study of what can be defined as medicinal stones is necessary. Not only that, it is ongoing. The wearing of a precious gemstone is something of a blessing in disguise. Put one such stone around your neck and, over time, you experience just how much your health or mood improves. Of course, it goes without saying that this is dependent on what type of gem is being worn and what the wearer’s unique physical or emotional condition is. Hence the need to research the matter. Fortunately, this much is not a hard taskmaster for the everyday layman or woman accustomed to carrying his or her mobile device in hand for the better part of the day.

If you can excuse the cliché, the internet is awash with easy to follow guides, all brief narrative summaries, that list the stones’ positive properties. This is usually accompanied by a colorful photograph. You would think that after acquiring such information, it would be so easy to go shopping for a precious stone of choice afterwards. But not so fast. Curiously, most retail jewelers, perhaps not entirely aware of the overriding significance of precious gemstones, are not stocking them in their glass counters on the same scale as traditional jewelry, cast in gold, platinum, diamonds, and the like.

But perhaps then, given the paradigmatic shifts towards alternative lifestyles closely associated with green and organic living and the close focus on alternative practices of medicine, it is just a matter of time before awareness of precious gemstones’ value, in more ways than one, is heightened. It’s always been the case, hasn’t it? Merchants remain sensitive to market demands.
