Vaping: Let’s Get This Out Of The Way

James Jarvis, President of the Ohio Vapor Trade Association

VAPING: “Let’s get this out of the way for 2019”.

In a recent post, James Jarvis discussed common myths about vaping, stating “Let’s get this out of the way for 2019.”

Not only is James Jarvis is President of Ohio Vapor Trade Association (OHVTA), he’s also a consumer. I’ve been to Columbus a couple times to see him, and I’ll describe James simply as good people. He cares about smokers having proper information and he cares about the industry.

To the point, a post on his Facebook page got me to thinking… if some vapers genuinely don’t know or are confused about information, how can the public know?

Let’s change that. Now. Let’s get this out of the way: Educators and legislators must learn.


On Public Record.

With the battle preconceived and one-sided (predetermined in some instances) for power and funding, authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ) of their respective township, town, city, and state must be made aware of all sides of this issue in their communities.

If an opportunity arises for three minutes at a podium, this can be read, memorized – as is – or modified, printed to dispel myths about vaping products and nicotine.

Politely – and directly engaging each concern immediately in front of decision-makers, with proper sources for authorities given the task of deciding the fate of (your) regulations, restrictions, taxes, and bans shows a proactive approach to their concerns no matter what the opposition.

I saw his list and was inspired. I have provided his points about vaping (numbered) from his post and link(s) to each point made.


James said: “Let’s get this out of the way for 2019″… ” I agree.



Let’s get this out of the way

1. Popcorn Lung is not caused from vapor products

From Dr Farsalinos, Brad Rodu, Dr. Siegel and more, a collection of evidence to the contrary:

A Bucket Full of Popcorn


2. E-Liquid does not contain tobacco

(some liquids do contain nicotine which is extracted from the tobacco plant. It can also be synthetic)

Are E-Cigarettes Tobacco Products?

Schrodinger’s Nicotine: Not Derived From Tobacco

American Cancer Society on vaping: Nicotine is not tobacco


3. Nicotine is classified by the FDA just like caffeine

53% of medical professionals say it’s like caffeine, and only 4 percent said it was “dangerous”.

Medical Professionals Speak Out on E-Cigarettes.

Also: Difference Between Caffeine and Nicotine

FDA says How Much Caffeine is Too Much?

Ironic, the FDA has removed the link stating

The changes being recommended by FDA include a removal of the warning that consumers should not use an NRT product if they are still smoking, chewing tobacco, using snuff or any other product that contains nicotine—including another NRT.”

is gone. I did find the statement here:

Here are screen shots of the original statements

The Royal Society for Public Health DOES say “nicotine is no more harmful than caffeine”, here.


4. Tomato, Eggplant, and all nightshade veggies contain nicotine

“Nicotine is an alkaloid found in the nightshade family of plants (Solanaceae), predominantly in tobacco, and in lower quantities in tomato, potato, eggplant (aubergine), and green pepper. Nicotine alkaloids are also found in the leaves of the coca plant.”

Nicotine is also found in tea.

Nicotine

The nicotine contents of vegetables


Let’s get this out of the way

5. Nicotine DOES NOT cause cancer.

What medical ‘experts’ hide: Nicotine does NOT cause cancer

Nicotine has no association with cancer. There is no supportable evidence to link nicotine with cancer, and a vast amount of evidence (and irrefutable facts) that there is no such link.

Nicotine And Cancer – Is There Any Link?


6. Vape Shops DO NOT want youth to use vapor products, which is why we ID and refuse service

“all vape shops inspected were found to be in compliance”


7. The nicotine used in patches, gums and lozenges is the same as whats used in vapor….

( why is vapor more dangerous???)

It’s the same nicotine.

“Nicotine can also be purchased in many other forms including patches, chewing gum, and liquid extract formula.” That’s here.


8. Vapor is at least 95% – 99% safer than combustible tobacco

According to the Royal College of Physicians and Public Health England:

Nicotine without smoke: Tobacco harm reduction


9. Vapor is NOT a gateway to tobacco.

1.7 Million High Schoolers Vaped in 2016, As Both Vaping and Smoking Declined

Smoking among teens is at their lowest ever, showing 7.60% “monthly use”, 3.6% “daily use“.


10. Vapor is the consumer created solution to the tobacco problem.

Clive Bates take this subject on directly:

Innovation for Consumers: E-cigarettes and novel tobacco products – Part of the problem or part of the solution?


11. While youth use of the product Juul has risen, It is far from epidemic proportions. What is a youth epidemic you ask? Alcohol, Opioids and other drugs.

Marijuana = 22.20% “past month”

Illicit Drugs = 24.00% “past month”.

Vaping (any) = 26.70% “past month”

Alcohol = 30.20% “past month”

Monitoring the Future



James closes with his post adding “I hope this helps you understand what Vapor is and is not…. any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.”

In addition to the statements James made above, I’ve added more points commonly brought forth and used by jurisdictions when trying to regulate, restrict, tax and ban businesses below.

Let’s get this out of the way

There’s more.

12. Tobacco 21

A movement in the United States is raising the age of sale of tobacco to 21. While valiant in effort, it both restricts 18-year-old adults from products (e-cigs, snus, etc.) that can help them quit smoking and shows little progress to reduce smoking rates.

The Consumer Advocates for Smoke Free Alternatives Association (CASAA) released this statement about “Tobacco 21” laws:

CASAA Tobacco 21 policy statement: “Including low-risk alternatives in T21 laws is unwise, misleading”

There’s lack of enforcement

Consumer group THR4Life has this Tobacco 21 Tool Kit

As Senator Steve Linthicum (R – Oregon) puts it,

 “freedom from responsibility” will enable more state intervention for many years to come.

The Senator’s Op-Ed is here:

Smoking age law simply more nanny state

Tobacco 21 laws enacted are showing smoking increases with laws that includ vapor products.

Electronic Cigarette Age Restrictions May Drive Teens to Traditional Cigarettes

Here, a study showed “Increasing the minimum legal purchase age  (MLPA) to 21 years in NYC did not accelerate reductions in youth tobacco use any more rapidly than declines observed in comparison sites.”

Impact of New York City’s 2014 Increased Minimum Legal Purchase Age on Youth Tobacco Use.

From Robert Morgan:

Harm Reduction Drives Younger Vapers, Not Flavors

Brad Rodu discusses the Synar Amendment:

“Beginning in 1997, Washington required states to report underage sales via the Synar Program (here).  The latest Synar data shows that 9.6% of retailers were noncompliant in 2013.  The FDA also conducts compliance checks of tobacco retailers.  In 2016, the FDA reported a noncompliance rate of 11% (here).  The FDA should focus on this far more dangerous illegal cigarette sales issue, rather than obsessing over e-cigarettes. “

FDA Aims at Wrong Target in Effort to Protect Teens

Also, Brian Fotjik has this to say:

Legislation To Raise Tobacco (And E-Cigarette) Age Is Unnecessary, Risky Public Health Implications of Raising the Minimum Age of Legal Access to Tobacco Products


13. Withholding information:

Being restricted by law (I’m not as a consumer) is not an easy task for shops to contend with. Shops cannot say e-cigarettes could help ‘quit smoking’, or they’re safer than…

“We argue that omitting key health relevant information for current or prospective consumers represents a kind of quarantine of health-relevant information”

Withholding differential risk information on legal consumer nicotine/tobacco products: The public health ethics of health information quarantines


Let’s get this out of the way

14. Nicotine “addiction”

Ignored since 2011, Hanan Frenk and Reuven Dar submitted this to the Harm Reduction Journal:

“We show that the nicotine addiction model presented in this chapter, which closely resembles its 22 years old predecessor, could only be sustained by systematically ignoring all contradictory evidence.”

If the data contradict the theory, throw out the data: Nicotine addiction in the 2010 report of the Surgeon General

This shows “The effects of nicotine on the brain are similar to those of sugar, salt, exercise, and other harmless substances and events. “There are so many findings that conflict so starkly with the view that nicotine is addictive that it increasingly appears that adhering to the nicotine addiction thesis is only defensible on extra-scientific grounds.”

Nicotine as an Addictive Substance: A Critical Examination of the Basic Concepts and Empirical Evidence

Also: IS Nicotine Addictive?

Also: A comparison of the abuse liability and dependence potential of nicotine patch, gum, spray, and inhaler.

Also: Are there other chemicals that cause addiction in tobacco?
MAIO’s?

(They modified their link to not show this)

This is what the link shows now:


15. HIGHER nicotine levels are SAFE.

A new study shows higher nicotine levels are safe – “nicotine on its own, outside of tobacco products, has limited addictive potential, and that higher doses are safe and well tolerated

Here’s the link:

Trying to quit smoking? New research suggests higher levels of nicotine may help



Let’s get this out of the way

16. Second-hand vapor

From the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health :

“We evaluated concerns about exposure to vaping-related chemicals in a vape shop. Exposure to flavoring chemicals (diacetyl, 2,3-pentanedione, acetaldehyde), formaldehyde, nicotine, and propylene glycol were all below occupational exposure limits.”

That is here:

Evaluation of Chemical Exposures at a Vape Shop


17. Anti -Freeze

It is not anti-freeze. Simply absurd. As of the publishing of this post, the well respected American Academy of Pediatrics is still eluding to ‘anti-freeze’ as an ingredient on their ‘quick facts’ section here.

Propylene Glycol in E-Cigarettes – Is PG Dangerous to Inhale?

18. Battery safety

Battery Safety: E-cigarettes


Battery safety continued

If you’re in the industry: Responsibility.

Vaping In The News – August 18th, 2018


Vaping In The News covers media stories on smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, exposing tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies and more worldwide.

“The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.”




Submitting to the FDA the findings of the largest ever survey on e-cigarette flavors use by US vapers ~ VTA ~ This Tweet ~  E-cigarettes Seventh Report of Session 2017–19 ~ E-Cigarettes Are Toxic Chemical Free Says US Government ~ A Billion Vapers ~ FDA Claims There’s Market Freedom

Dr. Farsalinos and Dimitris Agrafiotis also went over THE largest survey extensively – here on Facebook.

This tweet:

I saw Danielle’s tweet the other day and I remember vividly – as a consumer – exactly how she felt. Her tweet reminded me of my journey. Inspired, I introduced her to (some of you) my twitter followers…

Her tweet (not mine) is now up to 28 retweets, 68 comments and 230 likes later… I imagine Danielle now realizes it means a lot to a lot of people. Keep on vaping on, Danielle.

 


E-cigarettes Seventh Report of Session 2017–19
Fresh off the presses from the UK:
“E-cigarettes present an opportunity to significantly accelerate already declining smoking rates, and thereby tackle one of the largest causes of death in the UK today. They are substantially less harmful—by around 95%—than conventional cigarettes. They lack the tar and carbon monoxide of conventional cigarettes—the most dangerous components. It has also proven challenging to measure the risks from ‘second-hand’ e-cigarette vapour because it is negligible and substantially less than that of conventional cigarettes.”

If you don’t want to read the whole thing, Mawsley already wrapped it up nicely here:

Jim McDonald has done the same here:

The United States is ignoring it, again:



Well… one organization did tweet about it:


Silly observations.

Vaping Organizations, Forums & Websites Worldwide.

world

Vaping & E-Cigarette Organizations & Forums are the heartbeat of information. Helping smokers make transitions. Helping new vapers understand what’s going on. Helping people, worldwide.

The forums are also places to teach, learn, compare, ask questions, complain, talk about regulations & much more.

They DO exist.

I have quite a few on the left  – and right of this blog for research & science as well.

Some were included. Some I’d never heard of!



If you’re a United States Vaper, please educate yourself.

The FDA has deeming regulations in progress at the moment.

Go here and do something about that.

Then go here as well.



From the survey – I asked folks to “click” it if you’d heard of any I had listed –

in no particular order, and these are the results.

Below the “official list” there were comments / links to even MORE worldwide.

Enjoy.


These, in order, were the “most heard of”.

The 50th “question”:

These organizations are in no way sponsoring this survey, they are randomly listed so you know they are available and are for your awareness only. Please check the ones you’ve heard of!

The one I added is a Belgian forum I’m part of. It’s quite rare in Belgium to see people using e-cigs, so we’re trying to organize ourselves online, even have meetings from time to time to talk and discuss the newest additions to the world of e-cigs.
