“Vaping” Sounds Harmless and Hip / “Lung Disease” Not So Much

“Besides nicotine, e-cigarettes and e-cigarette vapor contain propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin. These are substances used to produce stage or theatrical fog which have been found to increase lung and airway irritation after concentrated exposure. In addition, e-cigarettes and e-cigarette vapor may contain the chemicals or substances listed below.

  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs): At certain levels, VOCs can cause eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches and nausea, and can damage the liver, kidney and nervous system.
  • Flavoring chemicals: Some flavorings are more toxic than others. Studies have shown that flavors contain different levels of a chemical called diacetyl that has been linked to a serious lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans.
  • Formaldehyde: This is a cancer-causing substance that may form if e-liquid overheats or not enough liquid is reaching the heating element (known as a “dry-puff”).

Yeah, watch out for that “dry puff.” “Electronic cigarettes produce high levels of aldehyde only in dry puff conditions, in which the liquid overheats, causing a strong unpleasant taste that e-cigarette users detect and avoid. Under normal vaping conditions aldehyde emissions are minimal, even in new-generation high-power e-cigarettes.” (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25996087).

Big News (Fall 2017) for California Real Estate Licensees with Tarnished Records

Commencing January 1, 2018, the California Bureau of Real Estate (CalBRE) will allow disciplined licensees to petition the Commissioner to request the removal of license discipline information posted for public review on the CalBRE website. To be eligible for removal, the relevant license disciplinary action taken by CalBRE must have occurred at least 10 years prior to the petition for removal.
