The Science of Nicotine and Weight Loss

I was referred to this by the #CrankyOldBroad. Not only does it discuss the possibility nicotine and weight loss, it clearly states:

It’s interesting to note that while tobacco is addictive, pure nicotine actually is not. It is the monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) in tobacco that leads to addiction, so people taking nicotine who are not exposed to monoamine oxidase inhibitors do not necessarily suffer addiction and withdrawal from the substance

That is interesting to note

(Weight loss was mentioned in my survey here.)

Tobacco Harm Reduction: Evidence Update

Speaking of evidence, with this link, it isn’t the link. It’s the PDF within.

Things like this catch my eye:

“The same review suggested that if the rate of successfully quitting in a population without any assistance is 2-3 percent, the rate would only increase by 3-5 percent even if everyone used NRT. In fact, in order to produce only one additional successful cessation from tobacco, 56 people would need to be treated with NRT.

Considerations related to vaping as a possible gateway into cigarette smoking: an analytical review

The existence of any true gateway effect has not been clearly demonstrated, due to limited control for confounding factors.

Even if there is an effect (…) any effect on smoking prevalence will probably be quite small, and general considerations suggest that any overall population health impact of introducing e-cigarettes is still likely be beneficial.

Lower Nicotine Cigarettes

It is official, the FDA has invested over 100 MILLION dollars in, and now received, a “pre-market tobacco application” (PMTA) from 22nd Century.

“The Company’s primary mission in tobacco is to reduce the harm caused by smoking.”

These cigarettes are identical to conventional cigarettes except for reduced exposure to nicotine.

Let me repeat that: The FDA wants cigarettes intended to reduce exposure to nicotine. Nothing else.

Public “health” is very excited to help people quit smoking. With more cigarettes. I’ll expect this to be approved quickly – as it is in accordance with the revenue producing Ponzi scheme Master Settlement Agreement.

Tobacco “control” ~ Dear Senator Warren, the Revolving Door With Gottlieb Didn’t Start at Pfizer ~ U.S. Adults’ Attitudes Toward Lowering Nicotine Levels in Cigarettes ~ This little-known tobacco stock is a big winner from e-cigarette bans ~ Vape Shop Customers’ Experiences of E-Cigarette Use, Vape Shops and the Vaping Community ~ Is low-nicotine tobacco just another WHO smokescreen? ~ Vaping influencer marketing is misunderstood ~ Mouse-Brained Research ~ U.S. federal judge orders FDA to implement 10-month deadline for e-cig applications ~ Vape Manufacturers Must Submit PMTAs in 10 Months or Shut Down


Tobacco “Control”

The title for this is way too long, and doesn’t quite explain the lack of effort by the World Health Organization’s “Framework Convention on Tobacco Control” (FCTC)

Since 2003, they’ve accomplished bullying smokers, taxing smokers, and “controlling” tobacco, but this states there is NO evidence the FCTC has “reducing cigarette consumption” in all those years.

It’s something they’re just not good at. Evidently.

Vaping Taxes Tempt States but Bring Challenges

“National cigarette sales dropped 41% between 2001 and 2017, according to data from the Federal Trade Commission.” “

Prepare yourself for the anti-tobacco crowd claiming false heroism and creative math for dropped smoking rates with useless tactics.

With an obvious play with math and dates, the “41%” stated in the article below is between 2001 and 2017. I haven’t deciphered it – but I’m very confident the bulk of that drop started after 2009, as the graphic shows below.

You Don’t Know Nicotine

This “yet to be released” film is about nicotine, not vaping. Controversy is controversy. I’ll take it.



Vaping and the Mic

Tony Ottomanelli takes the subject of Mike Peterson to task as one of the voices in the industry.

The Vaping Legion

The “Master Settlement Agreement” is a contract. It creates revenue. For government and HEALTH organizations. From smokers. Buying cigarettes. Repeatedly. Never expires. Vaping is bad. In other words, please, keep smoking, we need the money.

This is well worth the hour.

Vaping In The News – June 29th, 2019

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

New study on second-hand JUUL vapour. You can all relax now.


Finally, A Direct Comparison of Smoking and Smokeless Tobacco Use

In another example of a tobacco company doing “public health”‘s job, why were the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) withholding information, and why did it take Altria to release it?

Thankfully, Dr. Rodu tells us the American Cancer Society – and FDA, CDC has held information about smokeless tobacco – for years, yet had difficulty sharing it.

Finally, A Direct Comparison of Smoking and Smokeless Tobacco Use


Denial of Nicotine Health Information Is a Breach of Human Rights

I’ve stated repeatedly: When I see Michael McGrady, so shall you.

Denial of Nicotine Health Information Is a Breach of Human Rights


Behold the Revolving Door: Gottlieb Joins Pfizer

Imagine being an employee with the FDA, then, not. Then again, then not.

Behold the Revolving Door: Gottlieb Joins Pfizer


Surprise!

Scott Gottlieb Elected to Pfizer’s Board of Directors

Surprise! Of course, maybe not so much – with the well known revolving door. Remember the bragging about the “fast-tracking” of drugs? Ahh – maybe it’s just me.

I wonder more of what percentage of the “fast tracking” Gottlieb bragged about ends up specifically benefiting Pfizer – like these did while he was FDA deputy commissioner for medical and scientific affairs in 2005.

Big Pharma battles Big Tobacco over smokers

Typing Speaking about Pfizer Gottlieb the pharmaceutical industry trying to take over vaping products. If you’re thinking cap is on – products similar to vaping products could be used patented for other medical applications besides vaping products.

Big Pharma battles Big Tobacco over smokers


Thinking About The Children

So disappointed in Dave for forgetting the ““. I’m kidding. I love Dave.

Thinking About The Children


Dual Use of Vapes and Cigarettes—Harmful or Harm Reduction?

I’ve covered dual use – admittedly in a non-professional journalistic way – from my survey – with some of you anecdotal sheep here.

Dual Use of Vapes and Cigarettes—Harmful or Harm Reduction?


Bad categories, bad science

Carl V. Phillips. Like no other.

Bad categories, bad science


Was Seattle’s soda tax a bait and switch?

One more.

I know you’re asking yourself: Why would Kevin ever involve a soda tax with vaping products? (Great question – and good for you! Gold star!!!) The answer? Because it shows two things: First, it did NOT decrease consumption, and it, like the Master Settlement Agreement needing MORE smokers now imposing ANY taxes on vaping products, is a Ponzi Scheme.

Was Seattle’s soda tax a bait and switch?

Global Forum on Nicotine Asserts Urgency of Tobacco Harm Reduction

“Essentially where they’re heading is to treat harm reduction products exactly the same as combustible tobacco. And I hate to say that they’re doing quite well with that agenda.”

Pushed by Federal Court, FDA Releases PMTA Guidance

Are you walking away from the fire, or directly towards it?

You’ve got less time to get your millions of dollars counted, stacked – and submission for each sku in – while dodging public health airstrikes from all corners of of their flat earth – to possibly be denied. Or accepted. Who knows. Either way, I’m not shutting up.

Here’s Jim McDonald:

Criminalizing E-Cigarettes — Perpetuating the Spiral of Poverty

Speaking of Dr. Glover, here she is:

Now they want to move it.

Common Sense Legislation Would Limit Teen Tobacco Access

While I disagree with Tobacco 21 as they portray it, Dr. Rodu has a point. Or three.

Common Sense Legislation Would Limit Teen Tobacco Access


Removing e-liquid flavours from sale threatens the proven success of e-cigarettes

A warning from the New Nicotine Alliance. They’ve been at this awhile.

Removing e-liquid flavours from sale threatens the proven success of e-cigarettes


Lets discuss nicotine, let facts emerge

Wait, facts and nicotine? Be still my beating heart!

“…total global retail sales associated with the nicotine ecosystem during 2017-18 were approximately $785 billion. Cigarettes made up about 89.1% of the global retail nicotine ecosystem by sales value. As compared to that vaping products have a 1.5 per cent market share, which is growing fast.”

If my math is right, 9.4% of the market for “nicotine” was pharmaceuticals.

See, researchers who are ethical will do research, science, and collect data regardless of who funds them.

It’s called independent research. I am looking forward to Meharry Medical College’s results, no matter what they are.

Those against it have agendas. Those against it are screaming.

Meharry Medical College accepted JUUL’s $7.5M grant with eyes wide open


Strategies to Reduce Illicit Trade of Regular Nicotine Tobacco Products After Introduction of a Low-Nicotine Tobacco Product Standard

Um – they already know there’ll be a black market. Huh.

Strategies to Reduce Illicit Trade of Regular Nicotine Tobacco Products After Introduction of a Low-Nicotine Tobacco Product Standard

Speaking of lower nicotine: Note, combustion stays the same.

I’ve covered “lower” nicotine here and here.

Gaslighting

Finally this week, two different articles about what public health “experts”, tobacco “control” and “governmental authorities” are doing in the United States: “Gaslighting.”

Two articles to get you in the mood, then a third from Carl V. Phillips from last year.

“a bias — whatever the motivation — is counterproductive”

Gaslighting the Public


Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target’s belief.”

“Gaslighting” by the Government and Sycophants:


Final note: Carl V Phillips covered ‘gaslighting’ here in 2018:
