Gottlieb: FDA May Ban Flavored Vapes in Convenience Stores

Jim McDonald tells us what we need to know…You can also watch – and question why Dr. Gottlieb heard the word “raid” three times on “Squawk Box” and did NOT correct the interviewee in the video link within.

Applying harm reduction to smoking

From Carrie Wade: “First, public health officials need to acknowledge that e-cigarettes are less risky. Continued mixed messages from government officials and tobacco use prevention organizations confuse people regarding the actual risks from e-cigarettes.”

Oliver Kershaw asks a very important question:


Philip Morris

It seems tobacco companies are well ahead of the “experts” in public health. Philip Morris tweeted “Our aim? To stop selling cigarettes as soon as possible because it’s the right thing to do. Our priority? Developing and commercializing better alternatives for smokers” on Friday morning and attached their PDF:

Speaking of marketing to children.


Formation of flavorant–propylene Glycol Adducts With Novel Toxicological Properties in Chemically Unstable E-Cigarette Liquids

One hell of a title…

Good or bad, this is the type of thing we *need* to know as consumers and I WANT to see. As an abstract, it sounds scary and can – and probably will be misconstrued, however, storage / handling of e-liquid is important to the consumer. (If I don’t understand it, someone will explain it to me). While I don’t think this is something we don’t already know, finding things -like this- and expecting manufacturers to adhere to standards and if necessary, make improvements.

“The objective of this study was to examine whether flavor aldehydes remain stable in e-cigarette liquids or whether they undergo chemical reactions, forming novel chemical species that may cause harm to the user.”

Will there be an epidemic caused by e-cigs/vaping in the next 5-10 years?

Chris Price takes a look at a question FDA’s Gottlieb already says there “is”…

Will there be an epidemic caused by e-cigs/vaping in the next 5-10 years?


Distorted Harms | Teen Vaping & Nicotine Use Is “Overblown”

Dr. David Abrams talks with Brent Stafford… a very insightful and highly recommended video.

Tobacco User Fees On the Rise in 2019

While GottLIEB claims a reduction in smoking is a “goal…” The FDA expects an INCREASE in revenue…from tobacco… every year. How can you pre-determine revenue? With less smoking? Well, with smokers trying an average of 30 times, and an expected retention of smokers failing to quit 93% of the time…. you simply “raise taxes” to supplement the 7% who’ve actually succeeded. That’s called “job security”. “Think of the children™.”

As an expected casualty of the cost of doing business, add just 5% of teens continuing to smoke…  then, since technology is faster than government is, demonize, regulate, restrict, TAX (and ban) e-cigarettes… Oh, and promote “lower nicotine” cigarettes…

Take your time.

Look at it this way… Nicotine patches and gums have a government approved standard of 93% tobacco revenue retention.
