E-cigarette Usage Is Associated With Increased Past-12-Month Quit Attempts
How long have you heard e-cigarettes are a gateway to smoking? You’ll relapse? They don’t work….well…
“These trends are inconsistent with the hypothesis that e-cigarette use is delaying quit attempts and leading to decreased smoking cessation.”
On occasion, “professionals” take it upon themselves to have a chat on Twitter about different subjects. Not with consumers, mind you, with themselves. This week, I learned from Dr. Linda Girgis that “doctors in the US can’t follow UK guidelines.” I don’t even know what that means, but I’ll take a stab at it.
Evidently, science, data and research is “different” in the U.K….. It must be all those extra “u’s” used in words or something… or the dedication to junk science that opposes and contradicts colleagues across the pond.
Here’s a short list of other guidelines doctors in the US can’t follow… evidently.
- “Smallpox vaccine”
- “Aspirin’s active ingredient”
- “Blood pressure measurement”
- The first “cardiac catheterisation”
- “1st successful blood transfusion”
Americans still don’t understand vaping and Hong Kong is planning to ban it

“Electronic Cigarettes” Are Not Cigarettes, and Why That Matters
Glantz settles academic fraud and sexual harassment lawsuit
Sexual harassament. Acedemic fraud. Carl V. Phillips serves shishkebabs below.
“two lawsuits were filed by female students against UCSF anti-tobacco nutcase and faux-scientist Stanton Glantz”
Not All Teen Smokers & Vapers Are Lawbreakers
Brad Rodu, again… slices and dices.
Clearing the air on e-cigarettes
In case you missed it, there are some welcome and familiar faces in this piece… and, it is almost balanced.
A little self-promotion:
Proudly, the Ohio Vapor Trade Association (OHVTA) did a piece on yours truly in their Advocate Spotlight.
