005 - E-Cigarettes | The Body of Evidence

005 - E-Cigarettes

E-cigarettes are all the rage these days, and their manufacturers are claiming all kinds of things: they help you quit smoking, they’re healthier, they’ll enhance your sex life (OK, maybe not the last one). Is “vaping” better than smoking? Jonathan Jarry and Dr. Christopher Labos look at the body of evidence on e-cigarettes. Their addictive discussion is laced with lines from The Lion King, quotes from Shakespeare, and obscure phonological references.
