E-cigarettes: What Consumers Need To Know

THR4Life compiled a list of statements from various “public health” authorities in the United States along with statements and positions from organizations around the world.

Blatant HINT section: These statements can be used as a resource, (hint) with links, (hint) by anyone. Like, for instance, in a hearing, or court of law, or some office of an official making a decision to regulate, restrict, tax or ban a less harmful alternative in your community. Before (hint) it occurs.

A little birdie told me more statements are coming from other sources.

One attendee was dismayed at “knowledge concerning nicotine in all its manifestations”:

Link to Ruth Malone’s tweet.

(I’m dismayed at the level of addiction to 🚬 cigarette 💰 sales funding tobacco control, but no one asked me.)

I checked the sponsorship of the conference… Two of the “Platinum” sponsors are GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer. Huh.

Of importance, there were members of “No More STEM Harassment” (#MeToo) outside picketing the event. One demonstrator went inside and presented Stanton Glantz with a flyer personally.

Sadly, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced their plan to take on sexual harassment seriously only a few weeks ago here.
