Doctors Health Press Releases Statement on New FDA Proposal for Warning Signs on Tanning Beds

<img style="float:left;margin: 0 20px 10px 0;" src="http://ecigfortmyers.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cache/49c0587c12_bc2a5-no-7-e-cigarette-gI-89491-dhplogo.JPG” />
Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 17, 2013

Doctors Health Press, a division of Lombardi Publishing Corporation and publisher of various natural health newsletters, books, and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, recently released a statement on a new proposal by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that calls for all tanning beds to carry a warning sign stating that theyre dangerous for anyone under the age of 18 and may cause cancer.

As Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin (http://www.doctorshealthpress.com/cancer-articles/the-increase-in-skin-cancer-is-because) notes, the proposal comes after a significant increase in skin cancer rates.

One in five Americans will suffer from skin cancer at least once in their lifetimeand more than 3.5 million skin cancers are diagnosed in the U.S. every day, states Dr. David Juan, Editor at Doctors Health Press. Every year, the rates of melanomathe most common type of skin cancerincrease by about two percent, and this trend shows no sign of slowing down.

As Juan notes in his article The Increase in Skin Cancer is Because, the FDA is pinpointing the rise of tanning bed salons, which promote the bronzing of an individuals skin at the high price of making them more at risk of developing skin cancer, as one of the reasons for the increasing rates of the disease.

While Juan states that he supports the FDAs proposal, he questions if the age of 18 should be specified, as people over 18 are also at higher risk of developing skin cancer when using tanning beds: In fact, he notes, the risk of developing skin cancer increases by 75% when people under the age of 35 use tanning beds, so if anything, they should include a warning for that age group, as well. Heres more: in 2010, the World Health Organization said that tanning beds posed the same cancer risk as cigarettes and mustard gas.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin editor concludes by stating, I know beauty comes at a high price, but I hope that my patients know that the price shouldnt be this high. During Skin Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place every May, I want you to take the necessary precautions you need to make sure you dont become one of the five Americans who will develop skin cancer this year.

eCig Battery Safety Reminder

As technology continues to grow and evolve, it’s imperative to remember a few basic safety tips regarding lithium-ion batteries:

1) Do not leave
batteries where the temperature may become high

Do not leave lithium-ion secondary batteries on the
dashboard of a vehicle, on a window sill, or any location where they are
exposed to direct sunlight, or high temperatures, such as in a vehicle parked
in the sun. Doing so may cause the battery to leak.

2) Do not leave
batteries near a heat source

Do not leave lithium-ion secondary batteries near a heat
source, such as a heater. Doing so may result in overheating, explosion or
fire.

3) Reading the
instruction manual

Be sure to read the instruction manual of the device and any
warnings before using a lithium-ion secondary battery.

4) Do not get
batteries wet

Do not spill water, salt water, <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juice or other fluids on a
lithium-ion secondary battery. Doing so may break the protection circuit built
into the battery, resulting in the battery being charged with an abnormal
current or voltage, and cause overheating, explosion or fire.

5) Be sure to
recharge the battery with the specified battery charger and AC adapter

Use the battery charger and AC adapter specified for use
with the lithium-ion secondary battery. Other battery chargers or AC adapters
may have different charging specifications that can result in overheating,
explosion or fire.

6) Properly connect
the battery in the charger or other device

A lithium-ion secondary battery comes with a specified
orientation of positive and negative terminals. Do not force the battery into a
battery charger or device if it does not fit. Connecting the battery with the
positive and negative terminals reversed will instead cause it to charge
incorrectly, and may result in abnormal chemical reactions internally that lead
to leakage, overheating, explosion or fire.

7) Do not directly
connect a lithium-ion secondary battery to an electric power outlet or
cigarette lighter socket.

Do not directly connect a lithium-ion secondary battery to
an electric power outlet or cigarette lighter socket of an automobile without
the use of a battery charger. Doing so may result in electric shock or the
application of high voltage that produces an excessively large electric
current, causing the lithium-ion battery to generate heat, explode or catch
fire.

8) Do not recharge
batteries where the temperature may become high

Do not recharge lithium ion secondary batteries on the
dashboard of a vehicle, on a window sill, or any location where they are
exposed to direct sunlight, or exposed to high temperatures, such as in a
vehicle parked in the sun. High temperatures may activate the built-in
protection mechanism designed to avoid accidents, preventing the battery from
being charged, or the protection circuit may break, resulting in the
application of abnormal current or voltage when charging, and leading to
overheating, explosion or fire.

9) Do not throw a
battery into a fire

Do not throw lithium-ion secondary batteries into a fire or
heat them on a hot plate or by other means. Doing so will only melt the
insulator, damaging the gas exhaust valve and the protection mechanism, but
also lead to overheating, explosion or fire.

10) Do not
short-circuit the battery

Do not connect the positive and negative terminals of the
lithium-ion secondary battery with a metal object. Do not carry or store a
lithium-ion secondary battery with metal objects such as necklaces, hair pins,
coins or keys. Metal objects may short-circuit the positive and negative
terminals of a lithium-ion secondary battery, resulting in a large electrical
current, which may result in overheating, explosion or fire, or overheating of
the metal object.

11) Do not apply
strong impacts to the battery

Do not throw lithium-ion secondary batteries, drop them from
high places, or otherwise subject them to strong impacts. Doing so may deform
the battery and break the protection circuit built into the battery. This may
result in the battery being charged with an abnormal electric current or
voltage, and cause overheating, explosion or fire.

12) Do not drive a
nail into the battery or crush it underfoot

Do not drive a nail into a lithium-ion secondary battery,
hit it with a hammer, or crush it under foot. This may deform the battery and
break the built-in protection mechanism, resulting in overheating, explosion or
fire.

13) Do not directly
solder batteries

Do not apply solder directly to the terminals of a
lithium-ion secondary battery. The heat will melt the insulator, damaging the
gas exhaust valve and the protection mechanism, which could lead to
overheating, explosion or fire.

14) Do not put a
battery in a microwave oven, pressure container, or other such devices

Do not put a lithium-ion secondary battery in a microwave
oven, pressure container, or other such devices. Sudden heating may break the
seal, resulting in overheating, explosion or fire.

15) Do not recharge
batteries where heat can build up

Do not place combustible materials on top of or over a
lithium-ion secondary battery when recharging or discharging. Doing so may
result in overheating, explosion or fire.

16) Do not
disassemble or modify batteries

Do not disassemble or modify a lithium-ion secondary
battery. Lithium-ion secondary batteries have a gas exhaust vent and a built-in
protection mechanism to prevent accidents. Damaging them may cause the battery
to overheat, explode or fire.

17) Remove batteries
from a device that is not being used for an extended period of time

When a device is not being used for an extended period of
time, remove lithium-ion secondary batteries and store them in a dry place.

18) Keep batteries
out of the reach of children

Keep lithium-ion secondary batteries out of the reach of
children. Careless handling often involves risk.

19) Keep batteries
out of reach of children and animals

Keep devices that contain batteries and batteries out of the
reach of children and animals to prevent the batteries from being licked,
swallowed, chewed, etc.

20) Do not use
batteries that work for an extremely short period of time

Lithium-ion secondary batteries have finite life spans. If
the device requires frequent charging, replace the battery with new one.

21) If something
unusual is noticed, stop using the battery

If the lithium-ion secondary battery gives off an odor,
overheats, is discolored, deforms, or reacts in anyway unusual during use,
recharging or storage, remove it from the device or battery charger and do not
use it again. Continuing to use such batteries may result in overheating,
explosion or fire.

22) If a battery
leaks, keep it away from fire

If a battery leaks or gives off an unusual odor, immediately
remove it and place it away from any naked flame. The leaking electrolyte is
inflammable and can cause the battery to explode or catch fire.

23) Beware of fake
and modified batteries

Batteries that have no manufacturer or distributor names or
warning labels displayed may be fake or modified ones. Fake and modified
batteries may have damaged or missing safety mechanisms that are designed to
prevent accidents. This is dangerous because it may result in explosion or
fire. Be careful when purchasing such batteries.

24) Do not place
batteries on top of an electromagnetic range

Do not place batteries on top of or near the electromagnetic
range. The batteries may become hot, causing them to overheating, explosion or
fire.

25) Do not force
decayed batteries into a device

Do not force decayed batteries into a device. Doing so may
deform the lithium-ion secondary batteries and break the internal parts or
built-in protection mechanisms. Continuing to use such batteries may result in
overheating, explosion or fire.

I have failed at being a Reo user.. Maybe some help?

So I got the Reo last week, loaded up one of my favorite juices and began the Journey to ReoLand…

Unfortunately, I crashed back to earth. I contacted Robert on some of this already but even with his answers I still struggle.
By the end of the week, I was so frustrated with the unit that I am mad at myself for spending 200$ and was looking to sell it. (Although not very hard)…..

Maybe some help?
Or maybe the VV version was not the right choice.

VV Reo Grand

– A good number of my LR atty‘s will not fire. They fire just fine on my other protected units. Robert said it was that I was trying to push more than 15Watts but I was running 1.5 and 1.8’s and either I don’t understand batteries (which is possible). I think I was well under 15
– I had some SR Carto’s that fired, but in my opinion (and that may be wrong) the reason to get a VV is to run LR at higher Volts (or at least that’s what I thought). Plus…

– I can’t seem to get the bottom feed action to work right. I get how to say it hits that feel "scratchy". I did try a new carto on it and got the same result. As I understand it the process is to take a no power hit while pushing the bottle. I looked at the Grim Green Review and followed to the letter. I still got those scratchy hits.

– A lot of the time, I did not even see the juice feed.

– The wheel voltage regulation is horrible. There is no indication of what you are at. For a 200$ device I think this is insane. Especially one where the bottom feeder does not work properly for me so I see no upside and get better results from all my other gear.

Now I am SURE this is user error. I am positive I am the problem. I know people who SWEAR by there Reo. (non VV)
This forum is full of happy people. I know I am the exception. Other than the VV Wheel issue.

I will say that I am very disappointed in the wheel so disappointed that it may push me over the edge to get rid of this unless I figure out how to get close to orgasmic results.

Please forgive my Hyperbole, I am venting, frustrated.. This is the most expensive unit i own. As a matter of fact its cost me more than the other devices I have (2 ego Twists (One of the reasons I am frustrated at the wheel its no better than a twist and even less feedback), 1 Vamo which is a damn workhorse for all of the 35$ I paid for it., 1 K100 which again is a workhorse for the 35$ I paid, and a Sliver Bullet which is a tank.. Seriously its a PV that doubles as a self defense device…).

Now I am willing to give it another shot. (although a trade in and refund of the difference from VV to non VV would make me happier if I decide to keep it.)

-I just got an HH.357 I have not even taken it out of the baggie to blow out the primer in it.
I- got new AW 18350’s instead of the efest I used. (not sure why an 18650 wont work in this if you stretch the spring but ok whatever). I really dislike stacking batteries. I feel its unsafe. Again just me.. I could be wrong. Again another reason I dislike the VV, I was not aware that it was ONLY 18350 stacked. I do know an 18650 will fire the unit but when I started having problems I went to the recommended specs.
-I cleaned out the bottle and the unit. Its currently sitting on my desk open, no battery, shiny with no <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid in it. I blew out the tube as best as I could. Can not figure out how to remove it and clean it fully.
-I have a Yummy juice that I know produces awesome taste/hits in whatever I put it in.
-I watched the Grim Green Video again.

Now.. Please impart some of the awesome knowledge onto me… The stress of this and not to mention the wife bitching that I paid 200$ for a device I am unhappy with. Like I said other than the VV issue. I am sure it is my fault.
