New Research Puts the Final Nail in the Coffin of the NEJM Formaldehyde Study
It seems in my estimate, 99.994% of what is passed of as “research” is done improperly because they don’t talk to vapers directly, or interperet data incorrectly by choice.
With all the wannabe scientists and researchers searching for fame and funding, there has to be one constant goal to the consumer.
The truth, good or bad.
When the last Surgeon General released
his report the governmental “Think Of The Children™” propaganda agenda last year, it was very obvious he and his fiction writers were creating an illusion. We all knew that, but damage control may be futile.
Covered by Clive Bates here, now Riccardo Polosa,Christopher Russell, Joel Nitzkin and Konstantinos E. Farsalinos have collaborated below.
“The next US Surgeon General should consider the possibility that future generations of young Americans will be less likely to start smoking tobacco because of, not in spite of, the availability of e-cigarettes.”
Related, Cannot Be Ignored:
James Dunworth of the Ashtray Blog interviews Professor Polosa on why they (thankfully) decided to release the above critique.
Another perspective from Steve Birr over at the Daily Vaper:
The War on Nicotine begins
Carl V. Phillips takes a shot at the war on nicotine, tobacco, the FDA and… well….
They’ve been wrong about all the other cessation methods, why not.
Carl got me thinking — as he usually does. One search turns into another and although I didn’t find what I was looking for, I found what I’d predicted here …
X-22 is the first and only smoking cessation product in the form of a combustible cigarette.
X-22 is a six-week prescription treatment which utilizes Very Low Nicotine (VLN) cigarettes (95% less nicotine than conventional cigarettes) to satisfy a smoker’s craving for cigarettes while separating the act of smoking from the rapid delivery of nicotine.
But… wait… there’s more to this company, they also have “high nicotine” cigarettes. Imagine that.
This is its American brand sold in more than 600 stores. It is a high nicotine cigarette. It might seem counterintuitive, especially given the health benefits claimed by its very low nicotine cigarettes, but high nicotine cigarettes could have significant health benefits as well.
X-22 has certain advantages:
“It’s a cigarette, people seem to prefer that”
“It has no side effects, apart from the harmful effects of cigarette smoke”
“It has been proved effective in six clinical trials”

If you’re not new here, Dick needs no introduction, but I like doing it anyway.
Are you familiar with INNCO?
Nicotine – The Zombie Antidote
Saw this in a Facebook group I belong to – from 2012. Nice perspective.
“My aim here is to defend the rights of people who choose to smoke. It may surprise you to know that, while the percentage of the population that smokes has declined in recent years (due to government propaganda), the incidence of heart disease has not declined. The reason, shock! horror! is that smoking is not the real problem to begin with!”
Big Tobacco Goes Soft
It seems Philip Morris is ahead of the curve of researchers, experts and distinguished nimwits in the tobacco control and anti-tobacco control “field”… again.
Gregory Conley submitted this in support.
‘Experts’ will continue to refrain from seeing less harm as the goal with the heat -not- burn product from Philip Morris.

Science And Data:
The truth, good or bad. Again.
Toxicity of the main electronic cigarette components, propylene glycol, glycerin, and nicotine…….
- Ninety-day rat inhalation study to assess toxicity of e-cigarette liquid components.
- Aerosolized mixtures of propylene glycol and glycerin with and without nicotine.
- Aerosol mixtures showed only limited biological effects with no toxicity.
- Adding nicotine to the aerosol mixtures resulted in effects previously reported
E-cigarettes and youth smoking: be alert but not alarmed
MY position on “kids” vaping is clear.
If “children” are already smoking, they’re smokers regardless of age.
That personal position will not change.
Coral Gartner has taken the “Think Of The Children™” to task in her paper.
Coral Gartner, who I follow on Twitter, and she, of all I follow, has briefly messaged back and forth with links for me, and has engaged reasonably….
has a piece in the Tobacco Control Journal.
“Several things should be considered in the interpretation of these studies”
