STUDY SHOWS E-CIGS PROPYLENE GLYCOL KILLS PNEUMOCOCCI, STREPTOCOCCI, STAPHYLOCOCCI

Time:2017-09-02 Views:810


          Current research indicates that vaporized propylene glycol found in e-cigs kills many forms of airborne bacteria, including pneumococci, streptococci, staphylococci, and even the influenza virus.  While anti-tobacco lobbyists often attempt to convince the American People that vaping is just as deadly as smoking, the scientific evidence just does not support these outlandish claims.  Perhaps even more alarming, researchers have known for decades of the many health benefits of vaporized propylene glycol.
Dr. Theodore Puck is considered one of the leaders in this field of expertise.  Before his death in 2005 at the age of 89, he had achieved worldwide recognition for his work in somatic cell genetics, often referred to as “cloning.”   Along the way, Puck also just happened to stumble upon propylene glycol as a potentially potent germicide that is also healthy for the body to consume.

OVERVIEW OF THE PUCK PROPYLENE GLYCOL RESEARCH

         One of Dr. Puck’s most reputable studies is entitled The Bactericidal action of propylene glycol vapor on microorganisms suspended in air and is still published on the NLB-NIH website.  According to the report, when propylene glycol is heated to 80 degrees Fahrenheit and ingested by the human body, the resulting vapor can kill many forms of nearby bacteria.  Among the most notorious include those known to cause such common ailments as pneumonia, strep throat, bronchitis, food poisoning, and influenza. 
“The killing of air-suspended bacteria by means of very small concentrations of vapors of various compounds, particularly propylene glycol and triethylene glycol, was reported. Under the experimental conditions employed, numerous kinds of bacteria, including pneumococci, hemolytic streptococci, staphylococci, influenzae, etc., as well as influenza virus.”
Dr. Theodore Puck conducted this research as far back as the 1940s.  He was considered such a leading expert in his field that Time Magazine ran a story on the scientist in November of 1942.
According to historic interviews, his initial idea that vaporized propylene glycol might be a potent germicide came from his studies of the London Fires of 1666 as a young man.  In a response to the many deaths involving the Black Plague, townsfolk had set many parts of the city ablaze in an attempt to kill the associated germs.  The pyromania seems to have worked, because reports of new infections almost immediately fell into decline.
Dr. Puck began his more current research by conducting testing on mice and then monkeys.  Not only did the animal subjects survive, they began to thrive with vastly improved physical health compared to pre-study conditions.  Puck also experimented with vaporized triethylene glycol, but the animals experienced side effects that included weight gain and a drying of the skin.  Vaporized propylene glycol produces none of these results.  

 
“Pneumococci were killed by amounts of propylene glycol as low as 1 gm. in 20 million cc. of air. Concentrations of 1 to 5 million to 1 to 10 million were required to produce the same degree of killing of streptococci and staphylococci.”

While the Puck research is not conclusive scientific evidence that vaping is 100% safe for human consumption, it does apparently prove that the anti-vaping alarmists are intentionally exaggerating the true facts.  E-cigs may or may not produce negative a limited degree of negative health effects on the human body, but the vapor produced from e-cigarettes is certainly far more beneficial than the second-hand smoke from combustible cigarettes.  And apparently, they have known this fun fact for over 75 years.  So, why are they still peddling lies and alternative facts?
