Gasping for Tobacco “Control”

money-laundering 3

However subtle and contrived – or loud the gasps become, the fight for tobacco revenue continues. Tobacco control assumes it’s their money. They want to feed their addiction by continuing their charade.

They want to continue funding manipulating motivating the public under the pretense of trying to “protect” health and making the world better. Hmm.

Because they are criminals.

Vera daCosta e Silva made some delusional points in her blog in the BMJ about (the) Foundation for a Smoke Free World, claiming the “tobacco industry’s corporate social responsibility programmes are an abomination” and “Such projects are designed to mislead or confuse public opinion.”


I fixed her statement for her:

For decades, tobacco tax dollars have funded influence buying, covert activities and scientific misrepresentation from tobacco “control“.

It sounds like Vera is defining screaming gasping a long standing tobacco control chant so now one looks at the incestuous and criminal relationship with pharma and their untreated addiction to continued tobacco sales.

Derek Yach openly responded as expected, but no plans of being sensible are to be found at this time.

They aren’t listening. Still, their incessant chanting is comforting to them as if the white noise drowns the sounds of their collective, soulless, arrogant mouths gasping for air.



I asked her myself where tobacco control funds derive… (‘cause who doesn’t like a good question to an expert….) I don’t expect an answer any time soon.



Here’s a fun example of failure. Claims of tobacco related diseases continue to RISE worldwide, according to Matt Myers. His claim?  “But we can stop it”… Seems the more money squandered stolen, the higher the alleged death toll… nobody’s noticing this trend yet?

Failure is a business model, evidently. Tobacco control, after 50+ years… is still in “business”.


More Tobacco Money

Here in the next link are a slew of links and the promise of the ever-present catch phrase, “win-win”, as to how tobacco control likes money derived from sales of tobacco from my pal Matt Myers.

State Tobacco Taxes


Helpful bastards, eh?

Here’s how they lie about nicotine.

Here’s how they’re helping smokers quit.

Here’s where the criminal enterprise wants you to keep smoking.


Here’s where more tobacco money goes. (Thanks for keeping me busy, Skip!)

Fogarty awards $10.7M to build tobacco control and prevention research capacity in developing countries


Another example…

of the effort involved to keeping people smoking:

UCSF Awarded $20M Federal Grant on Tobacco Regulatory Sciences


Here, in the flesh are Tweedle-Dee & Tweedle Dumb Puff-N-Stuff talking about how they like taxes. I do love a good explanation.

 


For posture, I’ve asked when Tobacco Control criminals will do the same…


Corporate Capitulation To The Zealots

Finally, if you’ve made it this far…. To my knowledge, I haven’t seen ‘s blog before… but I like it.

With more bullshit to walk through, Tobacco companies will be forced to lie and advertise on television…  stop rubbing your eyes, don’t read it twice… This is court ordered.

Corporate Capitulation To The Zealots


Meanwhile….

If you’re in any doubt about why nicotine is now defined as tobacco…

This will cure your curiosity.

Vaping In The News – September 30th, 2017

scream test bw

Letter to the World Health Organization ~ Deception ~ Bad Laws ~ Tobacco use on the rise ~  Classification of Twitter Users ~ Social Media Snooping ~ De-Addiction ~ Key issues, health impacts of “ends”.



There seems to be a pattern…….The scream test, deception, bad laws, mining tweets and manipulation of the public continues.

Meanwhile, sales of “approved” nicotine products, and the ethical responsibilities of those “in charge” continue to decline.

This is Vaping In The News –  for the week ending September 30th, 2017




Letter to the World Health Organization

Derek Yach releases a statement responding directly TO the World Health Organization.

Their statement is here.

This is #louder.

“It also commits that we will support independent scientific research free from the influence of any commercial entity that may be affected by the research outcome.”

Letter to the World Health Organization

André Calantzopoulos CEO of Philip Morris had this to say:

Open Response to Letter of 14 September 2017 calling on PMI to stop selling cigarettes


Deception

When and where will the line be drawn for those who are allegedly in the care and custody of what is the best interest of public health?

Think for a moment. If e-cigarettes were only “half” as “harmful” as cigarettes, where is the obligation by “professionals” to relay this to the public immediately?

I’ve asked this question a thousand times… why are they promoting smoking?

What are the ramifications of their deceit?

Bad Laws

This was posted in a group I belong to on Facebook. There is common sense in the world. When I, or someone else finds common sense content, I get a little giddy…

“Full Disclosure: I’ve never smoked tobacco in my life. And, I personally don’t like candy or sweets.”

“Stop inane, petty laws before they hurt people.”

Bad Laws Hurt People


Tobacco Use On The Rise

Speaking of BAD laws. The “Tobacco 21” movement can already suffer a loss. Seems the town of Cohasset had enacted the law last year and can already show a “spike”… in 12th graders – it went from 9% to 33% in two years…

Here’s where they blame the perception, and of course the children, not the ineffective law.

Now where have I… … … oh, yes….

Here it is:

Classification of Twitter Users

I’m beyond grateful an investigation of e-cigarettes includes tweets. How could the world survive without this study? Certainly, there’ll never be any progress without finding valuable information about Twitter users tweeting what experts can’t figure out – and I’m glad to be of service.

Classification of Twitter Users Who Tweet About E-Cigarettes


Social Media Snooping

Now, if they spent more time reading the tweets rather than investigating them…My friend Paul takes a look at

Social Media Snooping







“De-Addiction”

This is more like “de-addiction” to their revenue……….and they don’t LIKE it.

I LOVE it when the disruption is SO blatant and clear… and it’s in print.

Pfft… “de-addiction”…

“This has resulted into implementation of regulations and legislations for drugs and electronic cigarettes, which will further curb growth of the market in North America.”

Key issues  –  Health Impacts of “ends”.

Here’s where the American Cancer Society decides it concludes it doesn’t have any conclusions after more than ten years, in classic “run on sentence” and confusing fashion.

Without Integrity. Tobacco Harm Reduction In The U.S.A.

19


The tug of war on tobacco has gone on since 1964. Lets face it. It’s been almost 52 years since January 11th, 1964.

The Surgeon General at that time, Dr. Luther L. Terry, announced “an astounding conclusion: smoking causes cancer”  in front of  200 reporters behind locked doors. His decision to announce this must have come at some price. Imagine the pressure then, even then.

The Kennedy assassination was fresh in the country’s mind. Conspiracy theories were brewing. The Beatles were on the air invading the airwaves, but not yet on American soil. Ed Sullivan was plotting his next move.

Herbert A Gilbert had already invented the first e-cigarette – almost a year before his patent originally Filed Apr. 17, 1963.


There was no social media – no way to look something up on Google. Look & Life magazines were “Google”.  A gallon of gas was $ .25. My older brother John wasn’t even a gleam in the old mans eye, yet. I eventually came along in 1967…. I’ll put my beads & mop tops away now, and focus on this:

cdc1

FIFTY-ONE years. To improve? That’s the spirit. What THEY are doing is not working in the United States. What they are doing is lying.

What they are doing is without integrity. They tell you to “keep trying”, call the quitline, you’re not trying hard enough. It may take a few tries, We have products available that are approved.

E-cigarettes are not pharmaceutical. They are not tobacco. They are, however, a viable solution to tobacco use, if the user chooses to do so. To pretend e-cigarettes are bad is a “Professor of Tobacco Control“‘s job? The director of the CDC, Tom Frieden?  Neither of those have a conflict of interest…

I’ll get back to who’s job this is.

Lets look quickly (and sadly) at two men who represent the United States “Health Care” with questionable integrity.


Earlier this year, the CDC’s Director, Tom Frieden made a decision to be cute. He decided it was a good idea -confusing people with ads on television and billboards. He’s tweeted, set off the #CDCTips (Tips From A Former Smoker) with the impression of e-cigarettes being bad because a smoker kept smoking ((while using an e-cigarette)), and sadly lost her lung. Who knows the truth.

He also tweeted and proclaimed youth, children, tobacco products….

cdctomfrieden


The present Surgeon General chose, embarrassingly to say “we don’t know enough” but kids should not use them.

surgeonduties


You all reading know the deal.

When will the lack of integrity catch up in the United States? HOW and WHEN will they be held accountable?

Public Health England released their evidence update to the WORLD.

Public Health England Ecigarettes_an_evidence_update_A_report_commissioned_by_Public_Health_England(6)

Is their report pristine? No.

Is it responsible? Yes.

It gives responsible exposure to the subject. Opens very large doors to smokers. It tells the world there is a viable option, it opens up the world of reducing tobacco in the world responsibly. It creates a solution for the fairy tale goal of tobacco control.


The United States and a select group of idiots worldwide CHOOSE to continue to hide their heads in the sand and pretend it is bad. (Yes, Christoper Snowden brilliantly covered you here – Chapman, McKee, and Glantz, hoping he does Capewell soon).

controlexperts

WHERE is the reaction, agreement or even a contradiction of the PHE report from the CDC & Surgeion General? The U.S. Health Organizations? The Doctors pretending they’re experts? Playing grab-ass with themselves? They don’t have one, they’re trying to hide from it.

They’re not going to recognize it? They’re not going to acknowledge it?

headinsand

Well, my favorite engineer in the whole wide world, Professor Glantz, a “Professor of Tobacco Control” (self-titled?) who’s criteria is spelled out CLEARLY here

glantzcriteria

and his conflict of interest is clearly shown here,

glantzfunding

and here

glantzfunds

and Glantz DID do some cherry-picking and complaining of “conflict of interest” of the Public Health England report here)

This is a SUBSTANTIAL list of various organizations who are supporting Public Health England.

publichealthengland2


The only improvement to tobacco control I’m seeing in the United States is more taxes, restrictions, regulation processes and bans on e-cigarettes. The only thing I’m seeing in the United States is ignoring the PHE report without cause, without question, and with questionable integrity to the public. You’d think, after all, the effort in tobacco control in the United States is just about money not health. You’d think they wanted you to smoke.

The Beatles, like them or not, changed the face of music.

The e-cigarette, like it or not, has already changed the face (or “two-faced” opponents) of tobacco, tobacco control efforts and the world.


The American public is being lied to like the rest of the world. The honesty of Public Health England, and all involved is a step in the right direction. The path to irrelevance is going to be a lonely one, with less support for the true causes you do represent. Few in the United States are taking the initiative to be honest. Many are arrogant, few have integrity.

I thank those of you who do.


E-cigarette research, it’s here.

Medical Professionals are here in support of e-cigarettes at M.O.V.E.


It’s our job to enlighten the public. I encourage you to #DoSomething.

I want you to fight for your lives and a choice for smokers in the future as Dr. Farsalinos has stated.
