______________________________

This week’s edition is a bit different, because of correlationvirus… among other things, and I went on a journey of complacency, masks, and videos and…

I hope you are all washing your hands and well stocked up in all the toilet paper you can find. I thank you for reading….

Smoking, vaping and hospitalization for COVID-19

Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos, Anastasia Barbouni, and Raymond Niaura are continuously updating this. It sounds silly that politicians, front groups, and politicians are using this to (so far) fabricate agendas… but here we are.

Smoking, vaping and hospitalization for COVID-19

____________________________

Confusion, chaos and complacency

I took my time considering this particular article in this week’s news, and placement of it for a few reasons. What else are they confused, surrounded by chaos, and complacent about? Then, of course, it shows exactly what the agency doesn’t. Yep, you read that correctly.

If you’d like, you can (highly suggested) revisit this from last week, first. Then, of course, be my guest:

Confusion, chaos and complacency

_______________________

Cardiovascular autonomic effects of electronic cigarette use:

We’re invested in ourselves, and our health. Frequent visitors know I, and all of you are watching for anything, good or bad, about vaping.

“The results of chronic e-cigarettes (EC) vaping studies were consistent with a chronic sympathoexcitatory effect as estimated by heart rate variables (HRV), but this did not translate into chronic increases in heart rate (HR) or blood pressure (BP).”

Cardiovascular autonomic effects of electronic cigarette use

_______________________

Professional and Home-Made Face Masks Reduce Exposure to Respiratory Infections among the General Population

JoodiG’s tweet… in response to the Surgeon General Jerry…. along with Patty McNulty’ valid question/response are questioning him… silly we’re having a discussion about masks, but here we are…

Wear a mask, don’t wear a mask… either way, here’s the link JoodiG’s referring to:

Professional and Home-Made Face Masks Reduce Exposure to Respiratory Infections among the General Population

Here’s another:

Physical interventions to interrupt or reduce the spread of respiratory viruses: systematic review

Counterpoint:

“Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection.”

A cluster randomised trial of cloth masks compared with medical masks in healthcare workers

I am not a professional, but the Surgeon General wants to portray the -silly- debate of masks as if they’re just placebos…

Oh, and speaking of Twitter and masks, and now knowing what you know… there’s a poll and I predict a very interesting thread (and stellar responses below it) already developing.

Organizational Silence and Hidden Threats to Patient Safety

My brother, a professional musician, has a line (copyrighted) in a song “Caregivers and takers – had all closed their eyes”. Another related, but unrelated link I pondered including. The lack of doing something is, in my opinion, just as bad as doing something wrong.

“In brief, leaders must demonstrate a willingness to understand the complexity of the sociotechnical systems of which they are a part and be prepared to break the silence.”

I appreciate the “consensual neglect” phrase discreetly placed in this as well…

Organizational Silence and Hidden Threats to Patient Safety

We Vape, We Vote

Because of Twitter, vapers have been in a few “studies”… because who doesn’t like obtaining funding and spending it on how tweets work when there are real issues they could be…. oh never mind.

We’ve been called what could not be further from the truth: Addicts, Anecdotes, Bots, Impugners, Sheep, Shills, and worse. (I am kind of fond of being called a bot, though.)

Now, if you used the hashtag #WeVapeWeVote, you are as well.

Here, Andrew (follow him!) points out a flaw…. and that damn Greg is an influencer!

Surgeon General: Speculate, Fabricate, Lie. Correlation Virus

In the midst of a global COVID19 pandemic, the Surgeon General was interviewed by Savannah Guthrie and decided (without examining anyone on air) to speculate, fabricate, and FALSELY identify, diagnose a cause linking vaping and COVID19. That’s called negligent malpractice.

The question posed by Savannah Guthrie “…are young people more at risk than previously thought” at about 4:32 seemed to cause Jerome Adams to have a convulsion that can only be described as a severe case of correlation virus.

You read that right. Correlation Virus. That’s a real thing. Made it up myself. Many ‘experts’ suffer from it. Skyrocketing symptoms include “Speculation-virus” (a close cousin), and while spreading, is a distant cousin to “Unsubstantiated-virus”.

His response, in the middle of his response, included blatant fabrication. He just made things up. “There are theories that it could be because we know we have a higher proportion of people in the United States and also in Italy who vape. We don’t know if that’s the only cause.”

To say “we don’t know if that’s the only cause” is a determination OF a cause. A diagnosis. How many people has he treated to make this assessment? Again, that’s called negligent malpractice.

Adams, an anesthesiologist, is evidently board “qualified” to assume, correlate, fabricate, speculate, put you to sleep, and diagnose your symptoms without ever examining you. If Adams is an “expert” at infectious diseases, it is not listed as a skill or specialty in his bio. Really. He isn’t qualified.

To state “We don’t know if that’s the only cause” is an unfathomable fabrication, blatant misconduct, speculation, and an unprofessional lack of (research) integrity. PERIOD.


Is there a pattern?

This isn’t the first time Jerry’s been scrutinized for assumptions, speculation, incorrect and unprofessional behavior.

In July 2019, The American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) noticed a tweet drawing a conclusion on a Tylenol study he clearly did not read. They called him out on it, and rightly so: Surgeon General Backpedals on Flawed Tylenol Study. Because of ACSH.

Also, ACSH called him out, ironically unsurprisingly, here:

Surgeon General Endorses Dubious Research Again, This Time on Vaping

Dr. Rodu called him out here in 2018 as well. You get the idea.


Included April 16th, 2020:

Footnote in the middle of a blog

With the “vaping” related ‘evali’, two items have surfaced. This one, aptly titled, is what Jerry (and others) used to fuel miscommunication of the actual cause in his day-to-day activities to the media. To date, I do not know of any nicotine-only cases that were tested and confirmed. There were ‘self-reported‘ cases, but again, not lab-verified to my knowledge.

Miscommunication about the causes of the US outbreak of lung diseases in vapers by public health authorities and the media

Also, related, consumer risk perceptions. You know – the public manipulation of the ’cause’.

News that Takes Your Breath Away: Risk Perceptions During an Outbreak of Vaping-related Lung Injuries

If you’re interested, see “Spurious-correlations“.


Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers of PBS fame) once said, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’”


Here’s the question, and answer. I believe credit for the graphic is to Clive Bates. I won’t point out the most important thing (among others) isn’t that his children know people don’t listen to Surgeon General. Lean in, Jerry. Keep babbling.


I question the idiot.

WHY is he MAKING THINGS UP?

Sorry I screamed… I’m a bit beyond pissed off about this. What else is he lying about (and WHY is he lying) to the American people?

Just a sec….oh yes… I have examples of speculation, correlation, fraud here, wanting agreement for theories here, and covered snippets and narratives, here.


Correlation is not causation

Why would you be tempted to bring up an unrelated fabrication?

Now, if “that’s the only cause“, then two questions… well, never mind.

Adams, who I personally want to resign, had stated President Trump is “healthier than I am” just a week before.

But wait, there’s more… here on his personal Twitter account, Adams says “ANYBODY can be exposed to/ get coronavirus.”

Just a second…. let me get my… <stretches>, groan….there it is.


Is it true?

Certainly I am not an expert, but will speculate: The risk for getting coronavirus is exactly the same for ANYONE, as he himself pointed out just above. I’ll remind you what Jerry said in the interview: “There are theories that it could be because we know we have a higher proportion of people in the United States and also in Italy who vape. We don’t know if that’s the only cause.”

Wait a minute…… I remember a day where Jerry didn’t worry… coronavirus wasn’t even an issue.

This screenshot is a deleted tweet from his personal account.

Which is it, Jerry?


For the record

You may be surprised knowing my anger isn’t just about him saying this about vaping itself. It is about him, or anyone, taking the liberty, and advantage of their position to lie to the public as he, and others, have always done. If it were true, I’d certainly want to know.

IMPORTANT

This is an important pre-release from Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos, Anastasia Barbouni, Raymond Niaura.

Smoking, vaping and hospitalization for COVID-19

Also of importance, a PDF to “dispel widespread misinformation about vaping and coronavirus” from Roberto Sussman and Carmen Escrig:

VAPING AND SARS-CoV-2 AND COVID-19 – TECHNICAL INFORMATION FOR VAPERS


As Amelia Howard points out in her tweet, there is -0- basis for Adam’s claims as she responds to Jeff Zeleny, a CNN Senior Washington Correspondent.

Interesting from the rodent, Phil, below:

Here is where that chart from Phil is (down the page).

Definition of Research Misconduct

The definition of research misconduct according to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) “Offices of Research Integrity” (ORI) is pretty simple and straight forward. Bold below is my emphasis.

Research misconduct means fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results.

(a) Fabrication is making up data or results and recording or reporting them.

(b) Falsification is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting data or results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record.

(c) Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person’s ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit.

(d) Research misconduct does not include honest error or differences of opinion.


Why do “leaders” create panic from speculation? Because they can.

Others have said it, others have repeated it. Repeatedly. Repetitiously. Redundantly. Already. New York Governor Cuomo and Michigan Governor Whitmer have both mentioned it and are also suffering from correlation-virus and speculation-virus.

Image

The opportunity to come clean with this and EVERY health-related issue (NOTE: “They” are still avoiding the truth about “evali“) for every human is here in the present.

It seems I can only expect unrelated fabrication from the “top doc” of the United States. If I can’t depend on the appointed Surgeon General to provide the “best scientific information available” as his website proclaims, I can only hope Trump will fire him, or ask him to resign immediately.

Edit 4/02/2020: Interestingly, when talking to the panel before his appointment to replace Vivek Murthy, Jerry had this to say:

“I always want to lead with science … but I also want to listen to what stakeholders are saying and what patients are saying,” he said. “That’s the lesson that I learned.”

“The next surgeon general must be an advocate for science and facts and must be able to stand up and correct misinformation coming out of this administration,” said Murray, the panel’s top Democrat.

When Murray asked Adams whether he understands the importance of “picking science over politics,” he gave her an emphatic yes.

That quote above is here:

Jerome Adams promises to put science ahead of politics as surgeon general

In a time we expect confidence and truth, there is no room for incompetence, fabrication, speculation, or negligent malpractice from public health leaders.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I, and the rest of the world are still looking to “find people who are helping” despite how we “like it”, good or bad, with the calm scientific truth – in public health. Thankfully, Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx seem to be the educated ones I would look to for truth in the United States.

If you’ve come this far, PLEASE see Jim McDonald’s explanation of disinformation, here:

“The largest threat to “public health” is an informed consumer”.

I’m not sure what this ‘is’ ~ Vape Rally Postponed ~ Vaping, the USVA lawsuit, and the separation of powers ~ Domestic Inspections ~ The CDC’s Shift From Vaping to COVID-19 ~ The Surgeon General ~ It’s a public health miracle ~ In other news (and tweets) ~ Meet Sherrie


Please take care of yourselves and those you love.


I’m not sure what this ‘is’… from Friday…

I thought “I” wrote strangely, and came across this on Twitter. Weirdly written, as if it was from a few months ago, or yesterday. The title is “Ex-FDA chief: White House has been “spooked by politics and pushback” on banning aromatised vapes”.

I’m not sure why Gottlieb still thinks he has a position at the FDA, or what meeting it is referring to… was there one? I don’t know.

It’s in here in my “unexplained” files.

Ex-FDA chief: White House has been “spooked by politics and pushback


D.C. Vape Rally Postponed

With LOTS of things going on in the world, cancellations, changes, rescheduling, legislation… Tristan speaks about it, doing the impossible, and plans in the meantime for the PMTA, and possible future dates for the rally. #LOUDER.


Vaping, the USVA lawsuit, and the separation of powers

A coherent opinion piece with all the toppings….

“Without the rule of law, we have the rule of men. When men circumvent the law, that’s not good for anybody. And when the rule of men is promoted by congressional law, that’s unconstitutional. And if nobody challenges that, then our country will keep getting worse. “

Vaping, the USVA lawsuit, and the separation of powers


Domestic Inspections

If you work in a vape shop, I suspect you already knew this:

“To be consistent with the Agency’s position, CTP is issuing a partial stop work order to the entities we contract with at the state level for activities such as compliance checks and vape shop inspections.”

Domestic Inspections

The CDC’s Shift From Vaping to COVID-19

An interesting read from Jacob Sullum… covering credibility, “evali” and scaremongering.

The CDC’s Shift From Vaping to COVID-19


The Surgeon General

This should not have to be a paragraph I’d write, or you would need to read:

With the debacle on the “evali” last year, public health officials should always be are under direct scrutiny. The responsibility-including media, journalists, public health, other “experts” are in an unprecedented position to tell the truth, at all & ANY cost for ANY health issue.

I’d suggest you read the tweet from March from my pal Jerry’s personal account, then, listen to Dr. Fauci’s words in the video in this tweet. Oh, if you haven’t, I also suggest you join Twitter!

Jerry’s taking a well deserved ass-chewing…

EVERYBODY….

Pallone thinks you’re stupid

I can’t help that Francis Pallone thinks you are stupid. Take that up with him.


Speaking of being young and stupid

Did I ever tell you… there was a… oh never mind.

House Democrats go full nanny state and pass overkill vape flavor ban

Because it isn’t about… well… yes, yes it is.

House Democrats go full nanny state and pass overkill vape flavor ban


How ‘Trickle-Down Justice’ Adds More Hurdles for Returning Citizens

Oh wait, here’s how Francis deflects his own criminal enterprise with criminal and civil penalties for others, but not him.

Here’s what else #HR2339 had in it that caused a ruckus.

How ‘Trickle-Down Justice’ Adds More Hurdles for Returning Citizens


STATEMENT OF ADMINISTRATION POLICY

Back to reality. The house led by pied piper and top nanny-fuss-bucket Pallone had this dropped on his desk the night before.

Highlights:

“Unfortunately, however, this bill contains provisions that are unsupported by the available evidence regarding harm reduction…”

” another provision that raises constitutional concerns “

” The Administration cannot support H.R. 2339’s counterproductive efforts to restrict access to products that may provide a less harmful alternative to millions of adults who smoke “combustible cigarettes.”

“The Administration is also concerned about the constitutionality of a provision…”

“This standard may not satisfy the stringent vagueness test applied to regulations of speech under the Constitution’s Due Process Clause.

“the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is conducting regular surveillance of—and, when appropriate, taking enforcement measures …”

Do you really need to read it? Well, there it is.

The Politics of Vaping

That it “is” about politics (and money, and egos) rather than health still, after 5+ years still blows my mind. But, as I wrote late last year, there is a timeline where we went from being decimated to being FACE to FACE with opponents in the White House.

Nicotine science and policy Q & A

WELL worth the lengthy read. Why? Don’t question me!

Nicotine science and policy Q & A


I dare you to click on this…

Pro tip to legislators: Behind closed-doors agenda agreements should come BEFORE a vote, not during. Because I adore it so much, I tend to use the word (or variations) of “clusterfuck” sparingly. Here’s fuckwittery and clusterfuckitry in action – in front of a camera.

NICOTINE DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER

I put this at the top of this weeks news – because the myth is important. There are many people assuming the opposite. (Think snus.)If you are surprised to learn this, that’s fine. Read it anyway. If you’re aware, awesome, there’s more news below.

New York Magazine forgets that smokers exist

Another author I admire takes a hit piece, explains conflation, excessive misinformation, harm reduction and what the public deserves.

Charles Gardner points out the Truth

Apparently, in a less than obvious way to pull the gazillion people underage users of e-cigarettes to the promised land of a phone app, Truth Initiative has found the “cure” for the “epidemic”. Dr. Gardner points out their flaws in their… well – you see it.


Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids distributes vaping products

A vaping product in everyone’s hands….. After years of supporting tobacco companies and smoking, I knew CTFK would finally come around. They are now distributi…. Wait a minu…. did they supply plenty of these to school officials to create an illusion of an epidemic?

Can the journalists and companies they work for not afford to purchase these themselves? Did Matt use funding and donations to purchase these?

Dr Farsalinos said: “Unsurprisingly, and in agreement with other studies, we found a strong association between current daily e-cigarette use and being a former (rather than a current) smoker.

US Candidates on Vaping

Being the least informed on what is a hot topic in the U.S. is one thing, not knowing it is political… as discussed above… is another thing entirely. Hearing it from Dave across the pond makes it better.

Two videos from this week:

Children testifying about vaping in open court

Since my introduction to the inner-sanctum of the vaping world, (which is at times by far seemingly on the outer rings of Saturn), the discussion of having children testify in open court has been a contested and “lets not talk about that” position for many good, and bad reasons. I haven’t changed my mind, I just haven’t been able to articulate how it should, or could, be done.

I think, and hope you’ll agree, this outstanding example where children (not coached, not scripted or wearing a nifty orange shirt) can, and should be a bar the industry and consumers can attain respectfully. This was discussed last evening on Smoke-Free Radio, and the conclusion is that (we) there’s nothing left to lose.

This points to a wonderful example to the (your) child how the legal process works, and can be effective to lawmakers. You have to judge the maturity of your child and their ability to speak their mind. If they meet your criteria, You get your three minutes, they should have theirs.

To speak in public is one of the top fears humans have. In this instance, these brave children did well. This is 5:45 long and well worth your time.


Vaping: what people are getting wrong | The Economist

Yep, the mainstream media is paying attention. Yes, we have a long way to go. NO, it’s NOT over. Yes, you’ve seen similar. Yeah. It’s 12:53 seconds. No, it’s not ‘perfect’. Nothing is.

Accept that, watch it anyway, then tell all your friends to watch it.

Youth who use nicotine have rights. Stop punishing them. ~ There’s a right way and a wrong way to “Ditch JUUL” ~ Vape Ban – More Losers Than Winners ~ Lungs ‘magically’ heal damage from smoking ~ The Surgeon General’s Bogus Report on Smoking Cessation ~ World Health Organisation fails ~ Peak Australian GP body supports vaping ~ Nicotine Expert: Vaping is Unlikely to Cause Seizures ~ Vaping Causes Everything ~ The USSG Isn’t Helping ~ Policy Tip Sheet: Tobacco Harm Reduction 101: State Profiles


Youth who use nicotine have rights. Stop punishing them.

I cannot break my VITN tradition, I’ve seen Michael McGrady, and so shall you.

I will preface this article with my now age-old (pun intended) and thoughtful question: At what age is a smoker considered a “smoker”, and display one of my favoritest tweets ever:

You can choose to disagree if you like.

Youth who use nicotine have rights. Stop punishing them.


There’s a right way and a wrong way to “Ditch JUUL”

Speaking of teens…. this is from the MN Smoke Free Alliance. It is not only an articulate and precise way to educate children the adults in the education, “control”, parenting, and industry spaces, it is one of the best “wish I’d have written this” documents I’ve seen.

There’s a right way and a wrong way to “Ditch JUUL”


Vape Ban – More Losers Than Winners

Speaking of teens…. they are included in this piece. If you’re going to talk about, and the genuine goal is harm reduction – directly or indirectly, you will include teens in the conversation.

Vape Ban – More Losers Than Winners


Lungs ‘magically’ heal damage from smoking

Because Robert Innes pointed this article out to me, I’m quoting Mr. Innes here, he has a better foreword to the article than I:

“So much for the argument that, “we should only breathe clean, fresh air” and that our lungs are delicate. It would seem that our lungs are smarter at looking after themselves than the World Health Organisation FCTC and the doomsayers who claim DNA damage from vaping.”

The Surgeon General’s Bogus Report on Smoking Cessation

Recall my friend, Jerry wants smokers to quit – and admittedly doesn’t understand why… he claimed “I didn’t even know until this report came out that you can add as much as 10 years — a decade — to your life expectancy by quitting smoking…” in his speech last week.

Speaking of fraud, Dr. Rodu takes Jerry’s “report” to task.
