Letter from H.A. Gilbert

From the Inventor

Over 50 years ago, I invented and patented the very first electronic cigarette, the only one of its kind in the entire world. When John Cameron reached out and asked me to join forces with his team of inventors and scientists, I was excited to be able to fully realize my vision to help smokers who were forced to stick with tobacco cigarettes.

Now, I am proud to be a part of the Human Health Organization team as they launch their premier electronic cigarette brand: 1963®, named in honor of the year of my invention.

My patent described “a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette” that involved “replacing burning tobacco and paper with heated, moist, flavored air.” Though the technology has progressed in leaps and bounds since then, the fundamental principle is still the same, a smoke-like vapor that can be inhaled and provides a vehicle for nicotine delivery into the bloodstream via the lungs.

Back then my wish was to have an alternative to the scourge of tobacco cigarettes. With the e-cigarette market starting to explode, more than ever my dream is rekindled. For this reason, I believe that my partnership with Human Health Organization will save millions of lives every year from cancer and other tobacco-related illnesses, just like I originally hoped.
