Dr. Gottlieb’s First Remarks to FDA Staff

“We need to redouble efforts to help more smokers become tobacco-free. And, we need to have the science base to explore the potential to move current smokers – unable or unwilling to quit – to less harmful products, if they can’t quit altogether. At all times, we must protect kids from the dangers of tobacco use.”

Dr. Gottlieb’s First Remarks to FDA Staff

The Thunder From Down Under

Save A Billion Lives

The Electronic Vaping Coalition of America (EVCA) has released this video.

A Billion Lives

The fight continues.

Last week, Iceland had a premier of A Billion Lives. They, like many other places, are facing regulations. People enacting those – were listening.

This includes the conference with Linda Bauld, Prof Peter Hajek, Prof John Britton, Clive Bates, Director Aaron Biebert and more.

Bladder Cancer

“Vaping and Confused”

The following Truth Initiative survey consisted of an online sample of 701 current smokers and 300 former smokers.

“Nearly all (95%) of these respondents think e-cigarettes are effective at helping smokers quit and 94% would recommend them for this purpose, suggesting that e-cigarettes are a satisfying quit product for those who have successfully used them for that purpose.”

Vaping and Confused


In 2014, I conducted a survey with a total of 7,238 responses from around the world.

42% stopped smoking in one day.

Flavors helped 88+%.


Tax On E-Cigs Should Be Zero

Tax on e-cigs should be zero

Via Jeff Stier – National Review

“…health groups, including the American Heart Association, the American Lung Association, and the American Cancer Society, are actively lobbying against e-cigarettes and misrepresenting the science about both the safety of e-cigarettes and how they can help cigarette smokers significantly reduce their risk.”

The Trump administration should no longer defend FDA’s indefensible vaping ban.

“We do not have sufficient data to determine what effects e-cigarettes have on public health at the population level. We also noted that some individuals report using e-cigarettes to successfully quit smoking….”

Speaking Of Corruption

Matt Myers of Tobacco Free Kids has been kind enough to give us a list of those groups – in alphabetical order – who would like to promote smoking.

Bees & Nicotine

I can’t make this stuff up.

Nicotine enhances bees’ activity

Speaking of lowering nicotine in cigarettes….

Speaking Of Titration:

Norbert Zillitron is another I respect:

Titration Theories

Biochemically verified smoking cessation and vaping beliefs among vape store customers



My friend Robert Innes is taking out the trash.

We see it oh so often!


Paul has escaped from his hole, trying to make sense of the TPD.

From tomorrow, anyone who wants a TFV8, won’t be able to get one. Not legally at any rate. Here’s the thing about that, many of the small 2ml tanks just aren’t enjoyable to use. There are many of those small tanks that simply will not serve.
