A Vaper’s Guide to Prepping for a Natural Disaster


I want to start out by saying that this segment has nothing to do with prepping as far as food, water, heat, or sanitation is concerned. I’m not a prepper and if doomsday happened, I’d probably be one of the first people to die. Well, I might live to Season 2 of the Walking Dead, but probably not much longer. Anyway, I’ll only be talking about how to prepare for a disaster as it relates to vaping. As for the other stuff, you’ll need to figure that out on your own.

With Hurricane Harvey finished and Hurricane Irma probably down to a category 1 storm by the time you listen to this, this advice is a little too late for anyone who has suffered through these recent natural disasters, but things like this will happen again and it’s never too soon to prepare for a future disaster.

Dr. Siegel On The Misconceptions of The Anti-Vaping Movement

Brent Stafford of Regulator Watch recently interviewed two major voices in the anti-tobacco movement. One of them was Stanton Glantz who is adamantly anti-vaping, and the other is Dr. Michael Siegel, who is a pro-vaping advocate. We discussed Stanton Glantz interview already, and now we’ll hear Dr. Siegel’s thoughts.

Dr. Michael Siegel is the professor of Boston Universities School of Health. He’s an expert in the tobacco control movement and a vocal supporter of e-cigs. He did his training under Stanton Glantz in the 90’s. Glantz was Siegel’s mentor and Siegel viewed him as a hero. He admired his work in the tobacco control movement.

The times have changed and they no longer see eye to eye. They are both still very much anti-tobacco as far as cigarette smoking goes, but the difference is that Glantz opposes e-cigs and Dr. Siegel embraces them.

Let’s take a look at some of the key parts the interview.
