Nicotine Addiction: An Open 30-Day Public Health Challenge.
This is a fundraiser for ecigarette-research.org for further research by Dr. Farsalinos and his colleagues and a challenge for public health to prove nicotine addiction without tobacco or MAOI’s.
So far the challenge has raised $215.00, and one challenge has been submitted.
While many have been shown the challenge, there have been no submissions from “public health experts“:
Nicotine Addiction: An Open 30-Day Public Health Challenge
Tobacco is safe. It’s just formalities.
David Sweanor…has been refused the opportunity to testify on Bill S-5 before the Senate Standing Committee of Social Affairs, Science and Technology (SOCI).
You can show your support here with this ThunderClap:
More formalities. Tobacco is still safe.
I will remind you of Clive Bates:
Do not read this or discuss it and in no circumstances should you comment
Then you can read this.
Scheduling delegate’s final decisions, March 2017.
They don’t want vaping in Africa. They like tobacco. Good to know.
The Emporer has blogged.
Glantz, who isn’t one of the elite royalty mentioned in this report, decided “As one of the 120 “leaders” who responded to the poll used to construct this document”, he strongly objects to the use of the subtitle, and spelled “necessarily” incorrectly as “necessarity” wrong – which leads one to believe he may, might, could – or it is possible, he’s an idiot.
If you’re unfamiliar with Professor Glantz, he’s covered here from Paul: Rotund Reaver.
I’ve blogged about the mechanical genius here and here.
New report does not necessarity reflect “the views of 120 leaders in tobacco control”
Tobacco Control Experts
Tobacco control experts have so much
blood time on their hands – they have to waste time with a conspiracy session.
Drink the tea, Alice – find yourself a nice mushroom stool.
Control has wasted over 50 years sitting on the floor with crayons – pretending to “fight”.
More of this, please
In their zeal to punish the evil tobacco industry, many have thrown the baby out with the bathwater by ignoring scientific evidence, mislabeling e-cigarettes as dangerous tobacco products and stifling, and restricting access to, a technology that helps tens of thousands of people — perhaps more — safely and effectively quit smoking every year.
E-cigarette myths should go up in smoke
Speaking of Dr. Farsalinos
“He pointed to the example of a conference organised by the tobacco industry in Brussels last year, where scientists were sent letters criticising their participation by a US anti-smoking group – even though they had no links to the tobacco industry.”
Researcher claims ‘academic McCarthyism’ over e-cigarettes
One letter sent was here:
The criticisms Dr. Farsalinios speaks of in the quote with 7 others is here.
The URL was definitely not the title of the article:

Now, this has story has two parts, and Phil called it.
Dr. Farsalinos was misinterpreted in the article:
My job is to defend science and evidence, not any industries. In that respect, and after waiting for 24h for the journalist to revise, I am obliged to denounce an article published in the Sunday Herald Scotland in which I am MISINTERPRETED as defending links between the tobacco and vaping industries and characterizing attacks on research into vaping funded by Big Tobacco were a form of “academic McCarthyism”.
Dr. Farsalinos’ full response is here:

A bit of common sense:

UL will be testing “tobacco products”:
UL, a leading global safety science organization, is announcing acceptance of product submittals of electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes, for construction evaluation, testing and North American certification.
