Run for 5 Minutes And Extend Your Life
The switch from analog cigarettes to electronic cigarettes has afforded many former smokers tremendous benefits. Though we as a company are not allowed to make health claims about electronic cigarettes, we can relay an opinion from our team. Chris from our marketing department said, “I feel like my lungs are clearing up. Occasionally I cough out this black phlegm and it sounds disgusting, but I feel better when I do. I also don’t need to wake up at 3AM for a cigarette break. Been sleeping well lately.” That black phlegm may be the tar build up in his lungs from years of smoking analog cigarettes and if so, then Chris is clearing up his lungs of the black matter. Perhaps the vapor has some unique effect, but once again we are not making health claims. We are merely hypothesizing. The US Food and Drug Administration has already committed 270 million dollars on electronic cigarette research projects, so we’ll see the results some time in 2018.
But 2018 is a long time away! What will we do in the meantime while our government agency work at snail’s pace to discover the effects of electronic cigarettes? Well, one of our staff members, Jasper came across an article that will interest you in improving your overall health. The LA Times reported on a study that “people who jogged or ran as little as five minutes a day reduced their risk of premature death by nearly one-third and extended their lives by about three years.” Well isn’t that something? Former smokers and current smokers should go out and buy a new pair of running shoes because running may possibly reverse some of the damage from smoking analog cigarettes. In January 2013, the NY Times reported on a study that “longtime smokers can expect to lose about ten years of life expectancy.”
Get your friends and head out for a jog! Five minutes of your day is a small price to pay for extending your life.
