Dr. Farsalinos is well aware of this fundraiser. I’ll make this as brief as I can.
Think back to when you first looked for research on e-cigarettes. You were (and still are) finding glorified journalism and public health websites choosing to tell a fabricated story.
(I’ve covered that here)
At times, you’d find fiction.
In the world of e-cigarette research, one name stands out from the crowd. Dr. Farsalinos.
Dr. Farsalinos is a Cardiologist.
I We are raising money HERE for Dr. Farsalinos and his team of researchers.
Why did I choose his team?
Because I trust him and his team to tell me the truth about what they discover, regardless of what they find. They do this to relay proper and unbias information to the consumer, good or bad. Period.
He is providing us with information.
“Unbiased, reliable – full access” information.
We can’t expect him and his team to do his research for free.
I access and refer to his work constantly. SO do you.
He speaks around the 48-minute mark here:
So, to clarify, this GoFundMe fundraiser is about
- Raising funds for Dr. Farsalinos and his team at ecigarette-research.org
- Requesting Public Health, Anti-Tobacco, Tobacco Control and other professionals to provide documentation and prove “addiction to nicotine” with the criteria provided.
- Proving or disproving the “addiction to nicotine” claim without tobacco or MAOI’s.
Why did I choose nicotine addiction as the subject?
Because powerful people in powerful positions have asserted themselves for decades by saying nicotine is addictive, and it raises awareness.
I painstakingly went through the criteria and sought advice from many I trust before submitting this challenge (and will blog about it about it once it’s over).
What happens to your donation?
If nicotine addiction is proven with the criteria:
Only 5% of the funds collected (minus fees) go to my most detested organization
The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
The rest of the funds collected 95% (minus fees) ecigarette-research.org
If it unproven, unchallenged (expected), ignored or does not meet the criteria,
100% of the funds (minus fees) ecigarette-research.org
Here is why I say nicotine is not addictive:
Here is what Joe Gitchell said when I asked what he thought about the challenge:
If you want to have lives depending on “expert” opinions and hypothesis with the “we’re in control” offices of Glantz, Chapman, McKee, Malone and Capewell, be my guest.
We need further unbias, objective research without conflict of interest.
Donate, spread this around. Change the world.
I encourage you to tag and post it everywhere you know experts will see it. Make them think. Put them to the test. Ask them questions.
Give them the chance to answer the challenge on my blog.
The goal for this campaign is set at $25,000.00.
Sharing is caring. Go here and thank you in advance.
