Those in any public position making contrived and deceitful statements to manipulate public perception about vaping products are denying smokers proper information, and are contributing to 1,300 deaths every day.
They are promoting smoking.
What they already know
Surely there were other studies, research and clinical trials before this, but imagine if you will, in 2013, when the National Institute of Health (NIH) funded a $3.6 million dollar survey to the Moffitt Cancer Center and the findings showed 79% of 1815 adult vapers had completely quit smoking cigarettes.
Are they helping smokers?
If the NIH funded a study, and found 79% quit, wouldn’t that be a reason to scream to the world? No. Wouldn’t that be seen as potential to reduce or eliminate smoking? WHY didn’t they report that to the American public? They couldn’t think of a headline?
Instead, it got buried.
When I did this survey, in 2014, results from 7,238 participants showed 42% stopped smoking in ONE DAY, 75% switched completely within a month. I did mine to try, in the words of those who’ve done it, to CHANGE public perception. Turns out the 75% on mine was pretty close to the 79% on theirs.
I’ve tried to show the world my results while they buried theirs.
Among other things, why are they also ignoring some of the most respected institutions in the world?
Making the general public think vaping products are as bad as tobacco has been imperative. In fact, they found a way to define them as tobacco.
That simple “definition” helps their cause with regulations, restrictions, taxation and bans.
It certainly doesn’t help someone trying to decipher the truth. It certainly doesn’t help the smokers who want the
help reasonable choice to make.
Some smokers try time after time without success to quit. Pressure by society, family, possibly dramatic changes in health are some of the reasons they may want to stop smoking. Desperation becomes frustration and eventually, some just surrender to the idea they can’t stop smoking… Smokers for life.
Judgement, shame and guilt goes a long way with tobacco control experts.
Ordering Telling Persuading smokers to quit any way they can, and then blaming them for not being able to quit with ineffective methods is not working. Now there is an effective “we didn’t think of it” non-pharmaceutical choice, a consumer product that works, within reach.
The “reverse psychology” must stop. The selfish and self-centered positions must stop.
This makes me think the goal of true tobacco harm reduction, (end game) to many, is just a game. Hiding, denying or manipulation of the fact that vaping products are at least 95% considerably less harmful and using smokers as pawns is a crime.
What will happen? The deaths by deception will continue, and health officials will say “they didn’t listen to us, they kept smoking”.
Since the tobacco harm promotion act has passed, August 8th became National Tobacco Day. There is now control. Once e-cigarettes were “deemed” tobacco, vape shops still able to assist smokers in the post-deeming world CANNOT legally say anything to customers about health benefits. They can’t legally assist them with their products.
Businesses can’t do that anymore.
Perpetuating the lie
Smokers already smoke. They are already aware of the risks of smoking combustible cigarettes according to the government & health professional statistics. When the personal choice to quit comes up, they are repeatedly told nicotine is addictive (it’s not), and are encouraged to use readily available, yet inadequate and ineffective “approved” methods like the patch & gum – containing nicotine.
When I tried the patch (a few times) and the gum, I didn’t research “success rates“, in fact I never thought to research the success rates.
I could give plenty of examples of opinions of misinterpreted studies, but I think this will explain my “death by deception” to the public BY public health quite nicely:
“If the general public are to come to an informed decision on electronic cigarettes then they require evidence that is balanced, robust and accurate.”
This one does as well:
“Omitting such health-relevant information for consumers of such products effectively blindfolds them and impairs their making informed personal choices.”
Don’t rock the boat. We don’t want to talk about it. When we talk about it, we must all stick together. E-cigarettes are to be downplayed and demonized just like smoking or we will lose tax revenue (government), funding (tobacco control/non-profit agencies / organizations), sales & profits (pharmaceuticals), profits from sickness (healthcare / hospitals / doctors etc.), profits in premiums/surcharges (insurance companies), profits (research/public health).
The Public Health Circus
Clown sightings within the public health circus are quite common, the coverup of tobacco harm reduction is one of the truest forms of “professional courtesy” I’ve seen. It’s like they’ve got a financial incentive to do so.
Smokers are being LIED to by those who CLAIM to have the best interest of public health first. Smokers relying on illegitimate and vague information piped through the media from the United States government and health “organizations” alluding to what “may” “could” or “might” are being swindled about e-cigarettes.
Speaking of public
perception deception, this crossed my eye on Twitter.
Does it matter?
Here is an example of the pharmaceutical world creating a “condition” that didn’t exist, so they could create three-BILLION dollar market.
Here’s another: “Pre-diabetes”
That is what they DID with NICOTINE.
Which led to this – “Government approved”
Speaking of reducing smoking, here are a couple examples of coercion in shock therapy, so to speak. The Mayo Clinic has this: Transcranial magnetic stimulation
And suddenly this:
Reminds me of THIS.
