Landmark study identifies cardiovascular benefits as early as 1 month after switching from smoking to e-cigarette use

By Dr Farsalinos.

Landmark study identifies cardiovascular benefits as early as 1 month after switching from smoking to e-cigarette use

AND

“….Within 1 month of switching from TC to EC, there was a significant improvement in endothelial function…”

Cardiovascular Effects of Switching From Tobacco Cigarettes to Electronic Cigarettes

AND Dr. Farsalinos is here:


The Corruption of Public Health

The disinformation campaign: success.

” The National Institutes of Health has supported activist researchers who’ve manipulated evidence to hype risks of vaping and falsely claim that it is causing an upsurge in smoking by young people.”

John Tierney dives straight in and doesn’t come up for air.

The War Against E-Cigarettes Is Profoundly Wrong

It amazes me when someone like Steve Forbes himself writes (He told Trump to butt out here in 2017, and about “Assaults On Our Freedoms” in 2018, and here he explained Antivaping Hysteria Is Unhealthy) explaining to the masses about the idiotic mess we’re in.

The War Against E-Cigarettes Is Profoundly Wrong


Rep. Lakeshia Myers

Here’s a politician who not only gets it by tweeting Ron Johnson’s article, she solidifies her position by making her position known – “To ban vaping is a premature reaction.”

Kudos to you, Rep. Myers for publicly standing up.

Vaping Industry Defends Right To Use Legal Products

No stranger to media, James Jarvis is in this most recent video:

Vaping Industry Defends Right To Use Legal Products


#QuitLYING #EndTheLies, American Heart Association

Unhappy with the lowest smoking rates ever, The American Heart Association – a non-governmental organization has decided they want to use the hashtags “#quitlying” and “#endthelies” on Twitter to accompany their use of the 1st Amendment to claims of “Big Vape“, to:

  • Gaslight the public
  • Strongarm small businesses
  • Use children to manipulate laws
  • Use political pressure to restrict adult choice

Who, or what, is next?

Someone tell Nancy she’s making this very easy for me…


Our Voices: We, The People

Knock, knock, Mr. President: A wrap up of the UVA rally in Washington, D.C. from me.

Our Voices: We, The People


Speaking of a Rally, BOSTON, Massachusetts:

I’m from Massachusetts. I call it Taxachusetts. I could call it worse – but no sooner has Washington heard our voice…


Vape ban Violators face fines, loss of cars

They must have forgotten the Boston Tea Party. So, under this bill – you could face $5,000 for a first offense and up to $25,000 for multiple violations. The provisions allow police to seize untaxed vaping products as well as a “motor vehicle, boat or airplane……….. another example of lawmakers demanding everything up front – and settling for “less”, but even I can’t believe my eyes.

Because freedom isn’t free.

Vape ban Violators face fines, loss of cars


E-Cig Summit Round Up 2019

James Dunworth can now write about the 7th E-Cig Summit under his belt, and don’t fool yourself or others — there’s ALWAYS information you haven’t heard.

E-Cig Summit Round Up 2019


Act Now: Say No to a Senate Bill That Will Ban Vape Mail!

I call it tobacco mail, Jim McDonald calls it vape mail… wait, they’re trying to BAN mail… with… oh – just go see what Jim has to say.

With this next one, I want you to highlight a couple things. Data is still data. Individuals are still, like when I did my survey, determined – in any way they can, to not let the government lie. Here’s another place to go…

Vape Ban Could Swing Election Against Trump

I’m not sure how President Trump will understand the basis of his decision allowing appointed staff to lie to him may just be the basis of his demise. Remember how shocked “everyone” was when he was elected… who will be stunned in #election2020?

I’ll be telling him with a bunch of friends next Saturday, November 9th, in Washington, D.C..

Vape Ban Could Swing Election Against Trump


Speaking of surveys.

The Real Nightmare This Halloween

Reports Say White House Will Ban Flavors Next Week

Well…. I have a silly question:

Was this a predetermined outcome to ban a less harmful alternative to #smoking from @SecAzar from September 11th?

Jim explains below.

I’ve been busy trying to be the best “bot” I can by taking a needed reboot for the past few days. However, news, and all the regulation, restriction, taxes and bans – never stop.

Outrageous Nicotine Tax Bill Passes House Committee

Pavlov’s dog… DING. I’ve been predicting this for SOME time. Vaping products are a replacement for tobacco. They are NOT a replacement for tobacco taxes. Well, regulate, restrict, TAX, and ban.

Outrageous Nicotine Tax Bill Passes House Committee


EVALI and risk communication, explained

VITN rules apply:

“There are principles of good public health practice and there are tactics by which science and the credibility of government bodies are undermined,” he added. “The CDC needs to think hard about why, in their current course of action, they are choosing the latter.”

EVALI and risk communication, explained

FDA Awards “Modified Risk” Status to General Brand Snus Products from Swedish Match

Snus, Kevin? You’re linking this? Yes. LESS harmful. Period.

“Findings suggest that the risk of relapse to cigarette smoking is low, and e-cigarette-related dependence remains stable in long-term e-cigarette users.”

Changes in E-Cigarette Use Behaviors and Dependence in Long-term E-Cigarette Users


A Randomized Trial of E-Cigarettes versus Nicotine-Replacement Therapy

US lawmaker introduces bill cutting nicotine in e-cigarettes amid teen vaping epidemic

Don’t think for one second lowering nicotine in vaping products does not have a direct mental bias illness with “lower nicotine” in cigarettes.

US lawmaker introduces bill cutting nicotine in e-cigarettes amid teen vaping epidemic

RELATED:

Careful what we – wish for. Remember, limiting is limiting adult consumer choice, whether it be cigarettes or e-liquid. Another link: lower nicotine – higher consumption.

I’ll expand: Because the new “cutting nicotine” bill above is being introduced, my Scooby-Doo, or Spidey senses tells me this New hashtag alert: #NicSick, is proof the “lower nicotinemovement propaganda is now in full force.

I ponder: How many cigarettes I’ll have to smoke to overdose.

Will misinformation kill people?

I ponder: Can you overdose?

Truth.

Marewa Glover Gets an Apology

“They want to silence me.” ~ Dr. Glover.

This woman is important to YOU. As consumers, we are very fortunate in the internet age to have the opportunity to engage with professionals.

While *most* professionals feel the *gasp* the public, is beneath them, we are, as consumers, very lucky to have some who will engage.

They face much heavier scrutiny from their peers (rightly so), BUT this shows, among other things, the risks those professionals are taking, and the results of telling the truth about harm reduction.

Thank you for standing UP, Dr. Marewa Glover.

Marylin

Something like this always brings me back to where I need to be, fighting for the choice of consumers. It reminds me of Fiamma Palermo (Karen Lee) a few years ago, who used the #ImProof hashtag.

This young lady declares her right is her right to choose, and questions accountability. More of this please. I must admit, I’ve got a crush on Marylin. I’m smitten. Not sure if my wife will voluntarily move out, though.



Mark Slis (Scientist & Vape Shop Owner)

Another consumer, and more. I’ll let him explain it during his testimony after driving over 500 miles to do it.


Compliance Checks

Meanwhile, as Marilyn eloquently stated above, underage children are still breaking the law. Meanwhile, retail stores are still breaking the law.

James Jarvis shared a post on his Facebook page showing the latest current numbers of “compliance checks”. Then, he asks a question.

He did my homework for us, so I stole his post. (Thanks James!)

Year to date FDA Inspection data total US…


Total Inspections: 102,032
Total fails for Ends: 4,212
10 fails were for selling Logic to minors
22 fails were for selling Njoy to minors
84 fails were for selling Mark 10 to minors
499 fails were for selling “other” to minors
748 fails were for selling Blu to minors
1407 fails were for selling Vuse to minors
1442 fails were for Juul to minors
Total fails for vape shops: 212
Total fails for smoke and vape shops: 82
*619 of the fails had civil money penalties (so multiple offenses)

Breaking down Ohio: Total Fails for Ends: 177
Ohio Vape Shop fails: 3 ( same store failed 2 times)

Then he asked: “Tell me again where the youth are getting their vape products?”

Compliance Check Inspections of Tobacco Product Retailers (through 08/31/2019)


Speaking of Michigan

It is not all roses and candy in Michigan… Rep. Johnson got on “Mr. Eliquid’s” website… and made a determination.

More of that responsibility, lawmakers!!!

Flavored E-Cigarette Bans Propagate America’s War On Drugs

“Moral panics, in turn, pave the way for “endgame” drug control policies. The war on drugs also has a history of pushing ultimatums to achieve policy goals.”

Uncool Mint Research

Another scare story tried to rear its ugly head this past week. While illegal THC products are giving the “anti’s” fictitious and strong momentum, they’re looking at ALL angles of decimation of a less harmful product.

14 Days to Prohibition: New York and Michigan Pass Flavor Bans


Governors Cuomo & Whitmer

May as well put criminals in one place.

Both Whitmer & Cuomo wants flavors banned. I’ve heard it may be because adults don’t like flavors! Neither do Senators.

“They want to regulate, restrict, tax and ban less smoking.” Think about it.

Governors, like Cuomo, seem to like tobacco-flavored non-governmental organizational front group flavored lollipops.

Image

Governor Whitmer, seen here enjoying a house full of flavored ice cream, beer, pastries, cookies, donuts, coffee and gasp, flavored cheese, does not like flavors either.

In fact, I’m under the impression she really likes flavors, including cherry, blueberry, and raspberry pie, but doesn’t want Michigan folks to have those same freedoms.

Vaping In The News ~ September 7th, 2019

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.

Vaping Illnesses: Consumers can Help Protect Themselves by Avoiding Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-Containing Vaping Products

FDA released a statement. Eventually. I am *almost* completely impressed.

Vaping and the MIC with Kim Shilling.

This is well worth listening to Kim Shilling as she discusses the Michigan fiasco.


E-cigarettes: Smoke & Mirrors

This video gives me hope that critical thinking may still be lurking in the United States.

With Dr. Sally Satel, Dr. Roger Klein, and Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller.


Speaking of needing “treatment”.

Surprise! Pfizer sponsored research has found they need to fill a need because you need their product as “treatment” to cease vaping product use.

This gem is in the text. Bold and italics are my emphasis.

There aren’t antismoking treatments for people who smoke only electronic cigarette (single users) or electronic cigarette and classic cigarette (dual users). Surprisingly, there aren’t data available in the literature on smoking cessation intervention for this specific disease group …

I’ll allow you to proceed:

Efficacy of smoking cessation with varenicline plus counselling for e-cigarettes users (VAREVAPE): A protocol for a randomized controlled trial


For posterity

In the spirit of having a record of informing readers now, and years to come, I will point out the wording is impeccable for propaganda, and the press was asking great questions. However, I will link the CDC transcript, and their inability to have any tangible findings, here

Michigan Governor Declares Cigarettes Safe

I understand the cringing. There were a few uneasy about this (my) blog because the Governor of Michigan didn’t actually say or “declare” cigarettes are safe.

Now, think of the never-ending, non-stop, click-bait (three hyphenated words in a row is a record for me) articles you see, read, get tagged by your friends, and millions share daily. That are not true.

Nope, she didn’t ‘say’ or ‘declare’ cigarettes are safe, but it was implied. Call it tongue-in-cheek, call it satire.

She isn’t banning cigarettes, therefore, cigarettes are safe.

Michigan Governor Declares Cigarettes Safe

Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan has arrogantly declared cigarettes are safe and will remain available for consumers of all ages in her state. “Alternative nicotine products” will be banned to protect the children ™.

It seems the words “regulate, restrict, tax and ban” will not catch on (in that order) as I had envisioned. Michigan, like San Francisco, has chosen the word “ban” for less harmful products to protect the children™ … I’m happy to report however, cigarettes are safe.


They aren’t banning all vaping products in Michigan, only “alternative nicotine products”. At last check (pretend I made a phone call here), cigarettes are safe from being banned in the state. To protect the children ™ .

Any normal human being would think laws are in place to protect the children ™ restrict underage purchase of booze, cigarettes, and other adult products. Don’t all laugh in unison.

Dr. Brad Rodu already explained underage sales of tobacco is poorly enforced and violation rates are “extremely high” in states like Michigan earlier this year.

(For reference on federal/state enforcement of underage sales, see what no one likes to talk about: Synar Amendment).


The Governor posted this… To protect the children ™.


Takeaways:

A less harmful CONSUMER choice is being eliminated. Without experience, consumers (of any age) may try to mix e-liquid themselves – and it will create a black market.

To protect the children ™ .


ELIMINATION of vape shops, restraint of trade – creating a monopoly for, or eliminating competition for cigarettes and smoking cessation drugs. To protect the children ™ .

Civil disobedience is already here:

There are other implications to protect the children ™ :

This arbitrary decision by Governor Whitmer, challenged or not, has created an unscientific template for the other 49 states to admire, assess, modify and then implement implement to their own needs to protect the children ™.

The American Vaping Association had a press release here.

Mutual Admiration Society member Frank Pallone was quick to show support to Whitmer. I was compelled to ask a silly question:


I can’t take – as a consumer – any threat as an idle threat. If just ONE of these threats, taxes, band, etc. takes hold… it’s a snowball to hell for everyone. I don’t really believe for one second most understand how swift that hill will accelerate the process.


I’ll readily admit I may not explain things ‘just right’ all the time, so (in the spirit of the name of my blog) I’ll point you in the directions of the links you need to see to better understand why cigarettes are safe in Michigan:

If you are in MICHIGAN, you should already have gone to CASAA here:

Action Center

You should visit Jim McDonald here:

Michigan Governor Bans Flavors by Executive Order

You should see Dr. Siegel here:

Michigan Ban on Flavored E-Cigarettes is a Terrible Policy with Devastating Public Health Consequences

And in accordance with VITN rules, you should go here:

Juul Labs Announces Support For Michigan Flavor Ban


Footnotes:

I found (then Senator) Whitmer announcing legislation (in 2008) to ban “toy” lighters years ago here.

Interestingly, I couldn’t find Whitmer trying to ban cigarettes anywhere (to protect the children ™).


Finally, in my best Morgan Freeman voice:

Cigarettes cannot and shall not be banned and are protected by law, in accordance with the Master Settlement Agreement.

Common Sense Legislation Would Limit Teen Tobacco Access

While I disagree with Tobacco 21 as they portray it, Dr. Rodu has a point. Or three.

Removing e-liquid flavours from sale threatens the proven success of e-cigarettes

A warning from the New Nicotine Alliance. They’ve been at this awhile.

Removing e-liquid flavours from sale threatens the proven success of e-cigarettes


Lets discuss nicotine, let facts emerge

Wait, facts and nicotine? Be still my beating heart!

“…total global retail sales associated with the nicotine ecosystem during 2017-18 were approximately $785 billion. Cigarettes made up about 89.1% of the global retail nicotine ecosystem by sales value. As compared to that vaping products have a 1.5 per cent market share, which is growing fast.”

If my math is right, 9.4% of the market for “nicotine” was pharmaceuticals.

Meharry Medical College accepted JUUL’s $7.5M grant with eyes wide open

See, researchers who are ethical will do research, science, and collect data regardless of who funds them.

It’s called independent research. I am looking forward to Meharry Medical College’s results, no matter what they are.

Those against it have agendas. Those against it are screaming.

Strategies to Reduce Illicit Trade of Regular Nicotine Tobacco Products After Introduction of a Low-Nicotine Tobacco Product Standard

Um – they already know there’ll be a black market. Huh.

Speaking of lower nicotine: Note, combustion stays the same.

Gaslighting

Finally this week, two different articles about what public health “experts”, tobacco “control” and “governmental authorities” are doing in the United States: “Gaslighting.”

Two articles to get you in the mood, then a third from Carl V. Phillips from last year.

“a bias — whatever the motivation — is counterproductive”

Gaslighting the Public


Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target’s belief.”

“Gaslighting” by the Government and Sycophants:

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.”


POLL ~ Trying to quit smoking? ~ FDA: FOIA Response #3  ~ Smoke Shaming Has Gone Too Far ~ Vaping: Let’s Get This Out Of The Way ~ Kimberly and Little Chute ban vaping devices for minors ~ Smoking Kills, Vaping Doesn’t ~ Quit Smoking: Keep Trying ~ Intolerable False Statements by FDA’s Mitch Zeller ~ Dr. Gottlieb: A New Threat ~ Epidemic from Surgeon General is Fraud ~ THR4Life


POLL time!

This poll (created by me) will take less than 15 seconds. Comments are welcome and sharing is encouraged among your friends, family, cat, dog… you get the idea. Thank you!


Trying to quit smoking?

This suggests higher levels of nicotine may help. Fine, read it again, I’ll wait.

“Evidence then emerged that nicotine on its own, outside of tobacco products, has limited addictive potential and that higher doses are safe and well tolerated.”

“Despite this, stop-smoking medications have maintained lower nicotine levels in their products.”

Repeat customers are the best customers. They’ve been lying for years.

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


FDA: FOIA Response #3

This is like trying to extract the truth out of (insert your favorite name here).

FDA: FOIA Response #3


Smoke Shaming Has Gone Too Far

HIGHLY recommended by Dr. Glover:

Vaping: Let’s Get This Out Of The Way

With preconceived and one-sided battles across the U.S.A., what myths are still hanging over e-cigarettes? What misinformation is damaging? What do – vapers – know?

We MUST change public perception. We’re almost out of time.

James Jarvis breaks it down in a Facebook post and inspired this blog from me us.

Vaping: Let’s Get This Out Of The Way


Kimberly and Little Chute ban vaping devices for minors

“The fine is the same as possession of tobacco: $92.50 for a first offense.”

Smoking Kills, Vaping Doesn’t

Missed this last week… did you?

Smoking Kills, Vaping Doesn’t


Quit Smoking: Keep Trying

I tried my hand at a video. Let me know what you think.


Intolerable False Statements by FDA’s Mitch Zeller

Dr. Rodu takes on fabrication about smokeless tobacco. As always, Dr. Rodu is well worth the read.

Intolerable False Statements by FDA’s Mitch Zeller


Dr. Gottlieb: A New Threat

Didn’t I just use the words “preconceived” above?

Not necessarily a ‘new threat”, the decision seems – decided. If you recall last summer, almost 70,000 comments were submitted about flavors? While we haven’t heard a word about those (to my knowledge), now the FDA “will issue within a month the guidance implementing the policy steps…”  Um, what?  Huh.

These comments seem to string the public along for what looks like the inevitable.

“…puts the entire opportunity at risk for adult smokers.”

“if these trends don’t reverse sharply and rapidly, I fear the consensus supporting these products for adults will disappear.”

Meanwhile, ironically, and speaking of public comments, they want to offer children nicotine via “approved methods”. What say you?

The Role for Drug Therapies; New Date for Public Hearing; Request for Comments

I discuss the “epidemic” below.


Epidemic from Surgeon General is Fraud

From yours truly: The results showing daily data from the Surgeon General is…      well, it isn’t available.

The government addiction to tobacco taxes become worse as the lies get published.

Epdemic from Surgeon General is Fraud


THR4Life

I’m very excited about this.

Leighton Broadcasting announced THR4Life as one of the non-profit winners nominated for their (2nd annual) “2018 Gratitude Campaign”.  Each winner will receive “21 radio advertisements per week for 13 consecutive weeks.”
