Sure it’s not the best example. My point is that most Irish people don’t follow football, so it’s strange to pick that as a cultural reference.

I think I just got a bit tilted because there’s a lot of dumb irish stereotyping in the thread which, as an actual Irish person, gets very tiring.

I understand. But it’s just a weird thing to say. Imagine the article was about someone waking up with an American accent and someone said “just give them a bottle of bud light and put on a Brazil game and they’ll be cured”. Just because the US support Brazil the most in the World Cup (when the US aren’t in).

Yeah they said the system was supposed to simulate 3 years worth of vaping for a human but I find that comparison highly dubious. High dose short-term can’t be directly converted to short dose long-term I believe. I don’t work with mice however so correct me if I’m wrong.

Some interesting things to note. This study uses the original JUUL pods (59 mg/mL nicotine) which are not being manufactured any more. The newer JUUL2 pods have 18 mg/mL nicotine. I wonder if this might change things.

Additionally, they did not control for flavourings vs nicotine; They used normal air, 30:70 vegetable glycerin:PG, and JUUL mango. It would be interesting to to see a control with just nicotine and no flavourings. And also changes to the lungs for different flavours.
