Elect Cigs The article admits however that:  “The industry has yet to produce results of large-scale randomized human studies to back their claims.”, and that: “When citing examples of how electronic cigarettes have helped people quit tobacco smoking, the industry uses anecdotal evidence, usually citing well known individuals, rather than statistically convincing data.” The article goes on to explain the way e-cigarettes work:  “E-cigarettes, or vapor cigarettes, work by superheating a cartridge that gives the smoker a dose of nicotine in the form of water vapor. This vapor can be flavored with cherry, chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, and menthol.

Stress in Men

Stress in Men: Taking another look at some coping mechanisms There is no debate about whether men versus women deal with their stress in different ways.  Each gender has some peculiar ways of coping although it cannot be altogether be discredited that many coping mechanisms are shared by both sexes. To illustrate “peculiar ways”, take this BBC news report stating that stressed men prefer heavier women: “When placed under stressful situations, men rate larger women as more attractive, new research has shown.” Is it a coping mechanism or the effect of stress?  When we talk of coping mechanisms, we deal with some scheme that a person adopts in order to survive his current issues. The question here is whether men prefer women because the choice comes with a particular relief or solution to their stress or do they take this preference because their taste changed after undergoing stressful condition?  In short – is it the perceived way of exiting the situation or an effect? The researchers who conducted this particular research conclude that after undergoing stress-provoking situations, judgment and preferences are altered.  So, it means it is the effect of the stress. In the same BBC article, readers will not...
