FDA just cleared a device that is apparently a ‘safer’ form of smoking. It looks more like an iPhone than a cancer stick. Since the e-cig, Juul and the vaping trend has become a major player the market now we have another little device. The iQOS was developed by the Phillip Morris company is designed to heat up, but not burn tobacco.

This is a huge victory for the giant Phillip Morris due to the change in the needs of the educated consumer. It differs from e-cigarettes already on the market because it contains tobacco rather than liquid nicotine. But iQOS still delivers an amount of nicotine that’s similar to traditional cigarettes.

As states began placing restrictions on smoking in doors and setting up a foot distance for smokers to stay away from buildings the industry needed to change. This is likely good news for the smoker and the passerby who both would prefer not to inhale thousands of chemicals.

Philip Morris has waited two years for the agency to clear IQOS (pronounced EYE-kose), a penlike electronic device that comes with a sleek battery pack resembling a cigarette case. The product includes an electronically controlled heating blade that warms a tobacco stick and releases a vapor with the taste of tobacco but fewer harmful chemicals than cigarette smoke.

Thanks for visiting. More about me...I wanted to be a doctor as long as I can remember. My passion is and always will be to help people solve their health problems and inspire them to be better versions of themselves. I completed my undergrad at Michigan State University where I studied Physiology. It was there I shadowed in a local hospital, talked to scientists, counselors, medical doctors and chiropractors. After much consideration I attended Life University in Atlanta, GA. Prior to attending Life U I had never been to a chiropractor. All I knew is they help peoples' spines. Shortly after attending I received my first adjustments. Previously, it was ingrained in my head that pain was normal and to ignore it. As part of the process at Life U you are assigned a student intern that is learning to adjust people. Little did I know their learning experience on my spine would be my miracle. At 26, I've had constant shoulder pain since my days on the high school football team. I was 100 percent convinced I'd have to live with it forever. After being under care for a few weeks things started to change and shortly thereafter my pain was gone. Besides the knowledge in joint pain and spinal adjustments I became well-versed in other aspects of holistic care like diet, exercise, and other chronic disease processes that can be reversed via lifestyle. I love to teach and like to be creative so starting a blog, youtube channel and instagram profile check all my boxes for what makes me happy as a person. Other accolades: I became the go to chiropractor in the Atlanta area for athletes and families. The Atlanta Blaze MLL (professional lacrosse) team brought me on to be their team chiropractor. 2015 Nationally Qualifed NPC Men's Physique Competitor I also did some modeling and even acted in a few commercials for fun.
