Like a crime scene, “experts” are trying to cover up scientific evidence about e-cigarettes. Cleverly disguised with their self-important pseudo-opinions, they publish their assessment long before it has been properly reviewed.
Like seasoned criminals, experts are studious at covering up or altering these scientific studies and research to their benefit, not yours. There will be no evidence reviewed unless they say it’s “ok”.
They weren’t invited, in any shape or form, to the scientific portion of the study, most likely because they aren’t qualified to perform it.
That makes them feel inadequate and they must redeem themselves. They feel left out.
Poor things. Bless their hearts.
They also really do not like anecdotal evidence. They do not approve. I repeat: They do not approve.
Your anecdotal experience is NOT important to them.
They don’t believe in it, they dissociate themselves from it.
There are experts everywhere, just ask them. It’s popular to be one!
How WHO are you to decide for yourself that e-cigarettes are an alternative to smoking? What is WRONG with you? Are you thinking for yourself?
Experts say e-cigarettes are NOT approved methods to STOP SMOKING.
Did you TRY the
not so effective approved methods? Did you give your best effort? Have you tried the patch? A quit-line? Counseling. Talking to someone may help. Keep those hands busy.

Nothing like tobacco control style guilt to persuade you is there?
I consider vapers the experts. Some idiots in the tobacco control industry have decided they are experts. Politicians??? They’re experts? T.V. Doctors!
Well – you would think they were, but they aren’t either.
In their quest for knowledge, you would only believe they would consume themselves by looking without delay, at science and evidence.
You would only think with the best interest of the PUBLIC at hand, experts would consult (and collaborate) with these people as quickly as they could.
I’d almost say, without hesitation, experts would seek the advice of people before them, that they would heed the experience of Medical Professionals who had the same doubts and thoughts.
You’d also think they would LISTEN to US.
To have respect as a medical, health, or “tobacco control” professional, you should act like one.
You cannot deny the evidence. You cannot ignore the evidence. You cannot make it fit in YOUR box. You cannot pretend it doesn’t exist.
You must either accept it as it is, or as an EXPERT, show why it isn’t working – proof. I am waiting for the proverbial shoe to drop.
Most experts just want to stomp their feet like children, hoping they get their way, hoping every colleague will agree with their opinion. Get over yourselves.
You’re at the bottom of the list.
While I’m at it – here’s a novel thought:
MAKE IT BETTER! Quit bitching and making things up. Instead of antagonizing, FIX IT. What? You don’t want to?
Nope. That’s not what they do. They see a report. Study. Science.
They rub their grubby hands together, and cluck like chickens.
They drop their carcinogen laced coffee as fast as it hits the floor, fling off their lab coats, and prefer to cherry pick. Please, no wagering.
They have a hypothesis. Opinion. They find key points in one thing and write all about THAT. They then turn that into childish propaganda. They MUST tell the WORLD using any means necessary!
Obviously the goal of this is not to help the world, but to keep their self-serving importance up in their “field” – to boost their popularity -so they don’t become irrelevant ! All much more important than helping the public, or so it seems.
Maybe they are SO insecure, afraid of becoming irrelevant, they fling pooh, eat their bananas, and will do what they can to keep smoking around….. nahhh – can’t be.
Maybe they’re tired of seeing e-cig users doing their job?
That must be it.
They already ignore the science.
They are having a much harder time ignoring US.
One recent example of listening, changing his mind, and being responsible in this matter is explained very well here, from Jim McManus.
When WE as users of this product reduced our tobacco use, regardless of the reason why, and are doing it by the MILLIONS, we must be on to something. You would think, if they REALLY want people off tobacco, they’d listen to the experts. Us.
It’s not like we’re walking around – pretending. Struggling. If it didn’t work, you bet your ass we’d be saying that as well. It doesn’t work for some.
By default, and by design, I’d bet ecigs would be a SOLID 85%+ success rate if “experts” would either SHUT up or admit they work and help those struggling to that end. They don’t want that.
We’ve stopped smoking by choice.
Most will more than likely choose not to listen, I hope you will.
Here are examples of UNEDITED “anecdotal” evidence from the latest survey.
Question #26: Did you notice any POSITIVE health or side effects once you were off tobacco using an e-cigarette?
Major health improvements. Chest, breathing, snoring, illness, blood pressure EVERYTHING has improved.

It hasn’t been long for me yet but I noticed the difference right away. The biggest thing for me though was learning I had a “smoking problem” not a “high blood pressure problem” as that went right straight to normal right away!

I had chronic bronchitis for over 16 years and it is gone now. I was afraid to laugh as it would send me into fits of hacking coughing. I laugh a lot now. I run with my grandchildren instead of being afraid to play for the coughing.

Despite the experts, vapers are claiming Side Effects !

Are you wondering why there is so much
controversy over e-cigarettes?
Some controversy in itself, created some controversy of its own from this clip.
