Josh Harris, Son of Captain Phil Harris, Joins the inLife Team to Help Bring Awareness to the Benefits of the Electronic Cigarette

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) - Josh Harris wants to follow in his Father's footsteps, but not when it comes to smoking. Sadly, Josh's father, Captain Phil Harris, passed away from complications due to a stroke he suffered on January 29, 2010 while their fishing boat, The Cornelia Marie, was in port off-loading. He was 53. It is sad to know that it was Phil's use of cigarettes that contributed 100% to his stroke according to the doctors at the hospital in Alaska that treated Phil and reported by his own family physician.

Josh was introduced to the electronic cigarette in the fall of 2009 while on the Cornelia Marie. In an interview at inLife's corporate headquarters in Irvine Ca., Josh stated, "My Father passed away directly from smoking 3 packs of cigarettes a day for 40 years. In that time he smoked over 900,000 cigarettes. I was looking for an alternative to the smoking of tobacco and was introduced to the inLife Electronic Cigarette. They have an electronic cigarette that is amazing in its design and performance as I looked at the entire e-cig market and saw a lot of inferior products." Josh now wants to get the word out about how smoking tobacco ended his Father's life. Said Josh "Our Dad's death has really opened my brother's and my eyes about wellness. I'm going to promote 'not smoking' as best as I can throughout the U.S. I don't want anybody to have to go through the terrible time our family just went through. It's the most horrible thing ever."

Josh Harris believes that the electronic cigarette is breakthrough technology that may help millions of Americans. Journalists that do have a sincere interest in learning how the electronic cigarette is changing lives will find the discussion with Josh about his experiences very intriguing reading as there are many, many U.S. citizens involved and affected by smoking. Josh will be throwing out the first pitch at Chicago's U.S. Cellular Field on July 7 and will be kicking off his "" ( Tour at the Blackstone Hotel in downtown Chicago between 7-9PM on Thursday, July 8th.
