Dr. Oz, Dr. Jennifer Caudle: What you really need to know about e-cigarettes

Speaking of wizardry, it’s disheartening to see the public health sector including TV doctors like Dr. Oz and Dr. Jennifer Caudle denying anything but their own interests and touting “approved methods” by claiming they “don’t know enough”. Oh wait, they’re experts.

E-cigarettes have been around more than ten years. Research has been coming for quite some time. Surely the crack staff of the great and powerful Oz could have found some if they’d only followed the yellow brick road. I already know Dr. Oz’s credibility doesn’t amount to a hill of beans.


So, according to her website Dr. Caudle (“Dorothy”) “graduated with Honors from Princeton University and earned her medical degree from UMDNJ – School of Osteopathic Medicine.” and claims “she is a regular on-air health expert for local and national news networks.”

In her expert article “What You Need to Know About E-Cigarettes“, she states she’s “concerned about the potential harm of e-cigarettes.” She also states “there is a lot that we know and a lot we don’t know.’’

If you were paying attention, you would see what Doctors in Journal Of The American Board Of Family Medicine said about Physician Advice for e-Cigarette Use.

I’m not letting you get away with it. You forgot the consumer within the ‘need’ part. You failed to mention a thing about ecigarette-research.org or CASAA. Maybe you didn’t know about them at the time of your latest article?



You didn’t think to reach out to any of these organizations?



I’m not sure if you’re too important to think of the complete picture in your article, or if you’re just “too busy”.

It’s not like we haven’t met online before.



Dr. Caudle, You already knew about ecigarette-research.org.

In fact, in July I sent you the link, among others.



We’re not idiots. We’re already looking for all we can know about e-cigarettes. Do you know why? We’re tired of everyone being lied to. Because we’re the stakeholder in the equation. You’re not.

You’re worried about ratings and what your peers think. I’m concerned with the efficacy and safety of the device. Had you contacted CASAA they would have sent you here for battery safety.

I’m we’re looking for things like this:

Trace Metals Derived from Electronic Cigarette (ECIG) Generated Aerosol: Potential Problem of ECIG Devices That Contain Nickel

I don’t understand it all, but others – including colleagues of yours, doctors, scientists and more, do. They explain it to folks like me. You explain little, because you don’t know enough.

It doesn’t seem to do a lot for consumer – or patient confidence in your skills as a Doctor. Further your education before claiming expertise. Watch out for those flying monkeys and get those ruby slippers, Dorothy.

For those “challenged” in public health, there’s no place like home.
