My Thoughts On Vaping + ASMR | Responding to Your Comments | Doctor Mike

  • Published: 01 July 2018
  • **Update** As you can probably tell I answer these questions completely relying on my knowledge and we don’t do extra takes. In the Vaping question I mistakenly said it’s Propylene Glycol that causes popcorn lung, when it is actually diacetyl (found in some flavorings). I will constantly try to improve my knowledge and give you the most honest, evidence based medicine info. Thanks for watching, love you all!

    We are back at it responding to your comments and questions via this monthly video series. I love reading and responding to your comments and as you can tell I'll jump into the comments section with a reply or a heart quite often.

    A couple favorite questions/comments from this video are

    1) Why do men have nipples?

    2) Why do doctors smoke?

    3) What are the health effects of vaping aka what are my thoughts on vaping ?

    4) What medical procedure makes me nauseous?

    5) Is pimping easy?

    6) Do I have doctor's handwriting?

    7) Can doctors prescribe themselves medications?

    8) My thought on makeup

    9) Will I ever make an ASMR video?

    Doctors are traditionally unreachable and I want to change that. So hop into this video’s and any other of my video’s comment section and ask dr mike! I want to see your username pop up on my next responding to comments video.

    If you have an idea of something you want me to cover in depth, please let me know because I take your requests seriously. We will be back with more Medical Drama Review Series in a couple of weeks so please submit more names of shows/episodes you'd like for me to watch. Love you all!

    For those of you jumping into the comments section to tell me how successful vaping is at helping smokers quit please read this. Just published this week.

    The Wall Street Journal (7/9) reports U.S. adult smokers who did not use electronic vaping devices to aid in smoking cessation were more than twice as likely to quit smoking as those who did, a new study published in PLOS One concludes. The study also found that 90 percent of smokers who vaped at the start of the study were still smoking a year later. The researchers said they did not find evidence that vaping devices helped adult smokers quit at higher rates than those who did not use the products.

    The Washington Times (7/9) reports “e-cigarettes are an ineffective tool for smoking cessation,” the survey of 858 smokers suggests. The article says “more and more research has found that e-cigarette use isn’t a reliable path to quitting cigarettes.”

      My dad smoke for 46 years, I bought a vape just for him to try, he quit smoking altogether is just a week. I would recommend vaping if you really want to quit smoking but never start vaping just because you want to try.

      I'm turning 20 and most of the people around me either drink smoke or vape... why do people ask you if you want to try it out and when you say no they say that's good you shouldn't ever start ? Srsly what's up with that ?

    Cursive is completely useless only thing you have to know is writing normally I don't even know how to write cursive I cry normally like block words I guess or bubbly words but otherwise I can't write or read cursive just like you and in high school or College or university they never really asked you specifically to write in cursive they asked you to write up but that doesn't mean cursive

                  I havent done any research on the matter but i thought men had nipples because we started off developing as a female and then our Y chromosome kicked in.

                              I’m a biology major and my professor says that men have nipples because it is a trait found in the X chromosome of the mothers eggs? So men and women both have that X chromosome from their mother and that’s why they both have nipple... 😁

                                              Men have male and female chromosomes meaning that they are practically half female in a way... thus they also inherit certain traits that women have...does that make sense??

The XY Chromosome foetus starts to differentiate genitalia at about 8 weeks in utero: the penis and the clitoris are the same size until about the 15th week. You can take it from there.... but, all mammals have nipples, even men ;)

At random, my hands will swell up, become red and start to itch. After the reaction, which lasts about an hour, it is painful to bend my fingers. Do you perhaps have an idea of what is happening?

Propylene glycol is found in many inhaled medications and is GRAS by the FDA.. Diacetyl was found in certain e cig juices to create a buttery flavor. Edited to many kids look up to you here, at least do a goddamn Google search next time.
