Again, I'm afraid to say, US sources display a frightening bias. Here, from the UK NHS:

https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/quit-smoking/using-e-cigarettes-to-stop-smoking/

So a quick skim says they are regulated differently In the UK. That’s probably the source of the discrepancy.

He's wrong.

Possibly, but I think in a pinch I’m going to take medical advice from the one with the medical degree.

I'll check the NHS website first in case there's a discrepancy and some crazy person says vaping is more dangerous than literal cigarettes.

Don't think it's the home run you think it is. An actual doctor says smoking is less dangerous than vaping. Remember when Trump's doctor said he was the healthiest person in the world or whatever....Americans and their credentialist nonsense are just cringeworthy.

To be honest after quickly skimming two articles my takeaway was that there are differences in regulations between the two countries. Therefore vaping here vs vaping there is different. So the results of the research is different. Because we are not vaping the same thing.

Yeah, we're vaping primarily the same thing. Smoking is one of the most dangerous things you can do. Vaping is generally incredibly safe, even including the aberrant poisons. And anyone who says different, medical degree or magician or holy prophet, is wrong. The NHS article I posted also said that in a giant peer reviewed study, vaping was twice as effective at smoking cessation as any other nicotine replacement product. And that nicotine is essentially harmless.

Honestly, this thread is one of the most awful I've seen on this or any forum. Especially one that's supposed to help people.

Your praising the fact that something is peer reviewed in one breath and saying you think the medical community are wrong in the second breath.

One thing is for certain, there is no health benefit for it whatsoever

Like this. It's literally recommended by the NHS and many other health agencies to quit smoking. It's prescribed and paid for by the government. But professor LilaNicole20 knows better.

Not at all. The medical community is correct. Your doctor isn't.

Not quite sure I follow your logic but we can agree that this thread has gotten out of hand. I’m not certain the OP cares about vaping anyways.

Looking for advice on band to sleeve with Medicare. I’ve had band for 11 yrs. Very complicated health history. Staying thinner /healthier is imperative for me. I’ve gained back 30 lbs. My bmi is 29.1. Last time I checked several yrs ago it was going to be a problem to get surgery to revise to sleeve because I hadn’t gained all of my weight back and now my bmi wasn’t high enough Anyone else have experience with needing to keep weight down but not being high enough with your bmi now to have revision surgery done ?

Most insurance companies require a bmi of 40 or 35 with comorbidities for first time surgery but if you have a medical reason for needing a revision BMI can be less.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
