Nicotine degrading enzyme could help smokers quit

“withdrawal symptoms, such as tremors and teeth chattering” in rats…

Ask your Doctor if it’s right for you. You don’t have to read it, but I’ll wait as they keep “looking” for an answer to a question that has little to no merit.

Nicotine degrading enzyme could help smokers quit


After 40 years of anti smoking messages

“Leave us alone…..People smoke because they like it.”

After 40 years of anti smoking messages people my age still smoke and young people start smoking. Why?


UKVIA calls for TPD repeal, while USA publishes fire statistics

Reality of Nicotine Reform Provides Long-Lasting Tailwinds for 22nd Century Group

Real cigarettes are going to continue to be government approved and readily available. Possibly, cigarettes could be prescriptions…..

This prescription thought, predicted by me here and here, of course the definition of nicotine as tobacco, is still tobacco. They don’t like nicotine, but despite the peek-a-boo games they play, “they” love taxes from smoking. Please keep smoking.

“The initiative was cheered by anti-smoking groups and policymakers”

“The FDA isn’t alone in its stance on the need to reduce nicotine dependence.”

Reality of Nicotine Reform ~ Is Science or Policy Preference Leading the Way?

Of course, already made with tobacco, it is a ready-to-go product to create instant tax revenue for the government…. so… I consider it ready to go.

David Goerlitz

David Goerlitz. If you don’t know who he is, you should. From the face of Winston in the 1980’s to the anti-tobacco movement in the 1990’s, David is looking for smokers.

He wants those asking questions to know the truth.

Now.

“In my quest in 2018 to get more than a million smokers OR more to transition to Vaping BECAUSE THEY tell me THEY are ready and convinced that it is their time, having done their research and homework on THEIR OWN regarding the benefits of vaping over smoking, I will be endorsing my picks for the best starter package to make the crossover not only rewarding and effective, but exciting and worthy of the effort.”

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

This is Why Tobacco Control Should not be Trusted

responsibility6trust

This is Why Tobacco Control Should not be Trusted

This guest blog is courtesy of two people I trust:

Kevin M. Price and David Goerlitz.

The current decline in smoking has been well-documented and has occurred because of a consumer based technology coming into the marketplace, not by the efforts of Tobacco Control (TC) groups. TC is primarily funded by Tobacco Taxes. It is a textbook conflict of interest because if they succeed at what they are trying to do, they will de-fund themselves. Let me make this a bit clearer for those of you reading this; Tobacco Control does NOT have the goal of eliminating smoking, period! TC is about control and power. Here are some of their proposed ‘fixes’ and what they claim their goal is along with what their true objectives are:

Tobacco 21- TC claims that raising the age to purchase tobacco products will reduce the numbers of new smokers by 25%. In actuality, it has done little to help reduce smoking or curb youth access since it does not make it illegal to possess tobacco products if you are under 21 and it has been largely rejected by a majority of cities and towns already. Raising the age to buy without the means to enforce it is a feigned attempt to appear to be doing a public service. The intended goal of this program is to inflate the numbers of ‘youth smokers’ by including the now ‘underage’ 18-20 year olds in their reports and surveys. They will further secure their funding by showing a jump in tobacco use overnight. Clever but not completely honest to say the least.

Flavor Bans- TC will claim that “Flavors are marketed to Children” and should be banned from all tobacco products. Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) has played a major role in helping people to stop smoking. It is estimated that nearly 13 million Adults in the USA have used smokeless tobacco (Vaping and Snus) with significantly higher success rates (67%) of never returning to combustible tobacco products again, using flavored products. Why would TC want to remove products that are magnitudes safer than smoking? Why would TC want to restrict access to something that millions of adults have found success quitting smoking with? If someone is trying to quit smoking, should they HAVE to use tobacco flavors to do so? The answer, they are well aware that doing so will cause many to return to smoking, completing the cycle of taxation and funding for their continued existence. It is not about public health, it is about their funding.

High Taxation- Tobacco has always been the target for taxes and revenue generators for states. The sin and guilt applied to smokers has been a psychological war going on for decades. ‘You smoke and should be ashamed of it, pay your taxes’. However, TC has completely ignored any and all THR products citing that ‘They are not FDA approved’ as their reasoning. Again, I ask you, Why not include THR products with a very high success rate and far less harm? It is an obvious ruse and it comes back to their funding. Call it ‘Tobacco’, tax it, and keep the funding coming in, rinse and repeat. Are you seeing the trend here? I hope so. On to the next…

Tobacco Control uses slight of words- If you listen to these TC groups speak, they will interchange the words ‘tobacco’ and ‘nicotine’ as if they are one and the same, they are not. Using this play on words they will say things like “Smoking kills 480k+ Americans each year. ____________ (add in any of their proposals above here) will save people from their deadly addictions to nicotine and create a healthier state/city in ____________ (enter city or state here).” They want to create the narrative so that people associate tobacco and nicotine as one and the same by continually using them together. Keep in mind that there are no studies that can prove nicotine is deadly or that it is ‘highly addictive’ as they claim. Not ONE study! Prove me wrong, I’ll wait. They do this so that they can include anything with nicotine in it to be taxed just like tobacco…to protect their funding.

Finally, I would like to point out that these TC groups are NOT required to communicate truthfully OR factually to the public. They are not bound by any state or federal laws to tell the truth. Having given you my professional opinion, I stand by the title of this letter in saying “This is WHY Tobacco Control should not be trusted”.

While you were vaping…

Many things are taking place right under your nose in the world. Are you awake? Are you paying attention? This, the way you’ve quit, switched or dual used, is under direct attack.

Regulations, restrictions, taxes and BANS.

Are you mad yet? NO? Then I’m not doing my “job”.

It STILL stuns me to see ~disinterest~ in this cause, and pisses me off more to see (MOST, not all) vendors still nonchalantly carrying on like nothing is happening. (Ask them WHY).

 

There are people who may want to switch but are afraid and still misinformed.

THAT keeps me going for people who don’t know better, like this.

 

I’m not going ANYWHERE. I’m NOT shutting UP.

Moving on.

 


 

Thank you, Paula for posting this on facebook.

This is something “Public Health” researchers should’ve been applying their efforts in and doing all along:

IF YOU USE CERAMIC COILS, you MUST read the link below.

Imagine for a moment – if “public health” research was focused on THIS type of thing from the start… how much further along we’d be.

The Truth and Science behind Ceramic Coils


 

The Right To Vape tour is kicking off their “nationwide grassroots campaign and bus tour led by a coalition of small businesses, consumers, trade associations, and public policy organizations. The Right to Vape coalition is organizing a series of press conferences, rallies, and town halls aimed at urging Congress to bring an end to the Food and Drug Administration’s regulatory war on vaping.”


 

Brent Stafford of Regulator Watch hit us with his direct and “no holds barred” style interview releasing part 1 of an interview with Professor Glantz.


 

A Billion Lives director, Aaron Beibert has created a ruckus. Here he is being interviewed by Forbes columnist Jared Meyer:

Government Puts Tobacco Interests Above a Billion Lives

 

Facebook is censoring an article, about a FILM, about not smoking…..again…


 

“The largest threat to is an informed consumer.”

 

Other than the obvious things above, there are two very distinct points in this fight.

1. Nicotine is NOT a tobacco product. (Reminder: Milk is not beef, syrup is not wood.)

2.  Nicotine is NOT addicive.

 

#1 will will never be admitted for the obvious missing tax revenue reasons…so we have to turn this around.

#2, since it is, for all intents and purposes, THEIR claim…they need to prove themselves.


 

IMHO THE only two weak, yet still contentious points in this fight from anyone still unaware and trying to make a point to their peers are:

The children™ and the “long term effects“.

 

We all know those points are waterboarding, brainwashing public health gibberish to attract unicorns.

It is about health, after all. Tasting blood yet?


 

I decided to make this video about nicotine NOT being addictive.

Agree, disagree. Do what you like.

Flame me publicly, privately or don’t say a word.

You can post your science in the comment section below.

I’m looking for addiction, in humans, without tobacco or MAOI’s for everyone to see.

I’ll wait. Until then:

 

 

 


 

Finally, if you’re sitting upright and able to continue after the shock and awe of the nicotine lie….

 

Speaking of causing a ruckus… I’m partnering with David Goerlitz, The Former Winston Man.

Now…

The Gloves Are OFF.
