Of Mice and Menace:

Why Rodent Studies Of Vapor Products Are Meaningless

“Mice are not little four legged people!” ~ @VladTheVaper

From Carl V. Phillips:

Of Mice And Menace:


Nicotine Warning

My words:

The Food and Drug Administration would like to have all e-liquid manufacturers continue to affirm the government lie to consumers by yelling fire in a crowded theater.

Their words:

FDA affirms commitment to warning the public to warning the public about nicotine in tobacco products

Minimally or “non-addictive” nicotine

Let me remind you of the accolades of lower nicotine:

Cliff Douglass of the American Cancer Society –  thinks lower nicotine in cigarettes is “Absolutely everything

NCI Director Ned Sharpless says “…good news for treating cancer and preventing cancer

FDA’s Scott Gottlieb claims “Lower nicotine in the same product

Matt Myers of Tobacco-Free Kids says “…to use products that won’t kill them

Basing “minimally or non-addictive” levels of nicotine by lowering cigarette consumption by 1.6 less cigarettes… over two years… is a public health win?  Here’s what they came up with after two years:

238 “non-daily” smokers… what?

👉over the course of two years...

lowered their smoking by 1.6 cigarettes…

“real-time reporting” and “cigarette butt counts.

No – to slow progress… is this is what the Food and Drug Administration likes?

One of my favorite subjects – covered here and here

This headline calls it “staggering“.

You can check my math here:

More Proof from FDA Population Data Showing E-Cigarettes As Popular Quit-Smoking Aids

“it is possible that they may play a bigger role in assisting smokers to quit combustible tobacco.”

Walnuts are drugs

Speaking of conjecture and nicotine being defined as “tobacco“, now…

I wonder how they vape…  and if we vape ’em, they also a tobacco product…

Walnuts are drugs.
