“The contrast was pretty striking…”


They say one picture is worth a thousand words.

The Guardian recently ran an article on the Green Man Festival in Wales. In that article, they did a blurb on electronic cigarettes:

“Particularly popular was a visual demonstration of the tar in cigarettes. We set up 2 identical apparatus consisting of a glass tube, attached to a battery powered bed pump. One machine ‘smoked’ cigarettes, while the other ‘vaped’ an e-cigarette. We hadn’t trialled this with an e-cigarette before we got there, so we were unsure what would happen. The contrast was pretty striking, within a couple of cigarettes, the ‘smoking’ apparatus was brown, and stinky. The e-cigarette apparatus didn’t change visually – though when we emptied it the water in the bottom smelt slightly of tobacco, as this was the flavour of the e-cigarette we used.”
