Do Less Harm: E-Cigarettes a Safer Option Than Smoking

“As evidence of their appeal, e-cigarettes are now used more often than nicotine replacement therapies when smokers try to quit in both the United States and the United Kingdom.”

From NYU, I agree with almost everything within, and “The research was supported by Truth Initiative.”

This one surprised me….

Annual Review of Public Health Harm Minimization and Tobacco Control: Reframing Societal Views of Nicotine Use to Rapidly Save Lives




A startling contrast to what is above – for fair time and value, if you must, Stanton “Puff-N-Stuff” Glantz and David Bareham have thoroughly copied each negative statement(s) they could find or come up with… and produced this contrived, coordinated, coercive manipulative, profitable pile of … well – if the first two items in a takeaway cover “taxing at levels”, what else do you need to know:

To minimize deleterious health effects, we recommend the following measures:

  • Prohibit the use of e-cigarettes anywhere that use of conventional cigarettes is prohibited, including in smokefree homes;
  • Tax e-cigarettes at levels comparable to cigarettes

Derek Yach Calls For Cooperation Over Skepticism

I don’t have ONE problem with this….

“The truth of the matter is that PMI is primarily interested in promoting their own iQOS product. But it’s equally valid that the best way to prove vaping is really less dangerous than traditional smoking…. the bottom line is that for once what’s best for the health of the public is also what’s best for the future of PMI and other big tobacco companies.”

VapesGiving Event Aims to Raise Huge Funding Goals to help Advocacy

Instead of focusing on what “can’t” be done, consider what CAN be done. Considering what is at stake, there is NO reason #VapesGiving can’t raise millions with this movement. This is beyond overdue.

Companies, including manufacturers, are joining with multiple advocacy groups to raise what should be nothing short of millions to attain results at any and all levels.

If you are IN business and not doing “anything”, I implore you to assess this and make some noise by making a difference. If you are already, I thank you.

Feds Owe the Public ‘Corrective Statements’ on Vaping

The verdict is in if you’re in the United States, you’re seeing tobacco companies court-ordered advertising on television for the 1st time since the 70’s. Sally Satel & Guy Bentley explain why the Feds owe the public the same courtesy.

While they mention the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Surgeon General, I can come up with a list of defendants in other parts of this blog upon request.

Long-term vaping causes no negative health results [new study]

Last week, I inadvertantly skipped this article by Jim McDonald.

“They found that the vapers had no negative health outcomes, and in fact showed results that were virtually indistinguishable from those of the non-vapers.”

Indistinguishable. This study extinguishes concerns, certainly, as to a smoker switching or dual using, and the very few and hard to find, who may take up vaping as opposed to smoking.

Tobacco Control Experts Are Having A Bad Week

With credentials at stake, two of the top (“self-proclaimed”) experts in the tobacco control world have had their reputations questioned this week. Both are were highly regarded by each other along with a select group of individuals. Both are under fire.

Both of the accused are presumed innocent until proven guilty, of course, in a court of law.


Allegations

First and most serious are allegations of sexual harassment and retaliation by Professor Stanton Glantz in California’s University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

Certainly Glantz is another in the scope of accusations against politicians, Hollywood, and other places in the world.

glantz paper 2

 


Within court documents, it shows “in my opinion”, accusations of manipulation of research.

glantz paper

 

The full court documents, in this case, are available here.


glantz pointing

Stan, according to his user profile at UCSF is”the Truth Initiative Distinguished Professor of Tobacco Control”. Well known in the anti-tobacco world, he has been no stranger to controversy over conduct with research in the past.

Christopher Snowden covers that eloquently here:

Stanton Glantz: Then and now.


Research Credibility

With the obvious larger issues at hand, and although not charged,  Federal Research Misconduct *may, *might, or *could also stem from this case.

Research misconduct is defined as fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results.

  • Fabrication is making up data or results and recording or reporting them.
  • 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.3
  • Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person’s ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit.
  • Research misconduct does not include honest error or differences of opinion.

 


Manipulation, deception, persuasion, abuse of power, control.

*The reason (not that I need one) I mention the research misconduct above is because of what Lorien says below.

Each time this happens, I hear the (paraphrase) words “a man in his position should know better”. I’d like to re-word that bullshit statement. NO man (or woman) should put themselves IN that position.

I do NOT understand why this is acceptable.

 

I am also waiting for Truth Initiative and UCSF to release a statment.

This world has long been a 24 hour news cycle. Tick. Tock.

*Update 12/8/17: Glantz has made a statement on his blog: Statement regarding litigation filed by Dr. Eunice Neeley:

Seems Stan accidentally deleted his page… could be a glitch…

 

 

 *Update 12/8/17:

 


Below are various sources of the allegations
