Deeming Regs: A War on Science and Common Sense

The “Lone Wolf” has questioned the integrity of the “deeming regs” and I like it.

Deeming Regs: A War on Science and Common Sense

Ahhh… What I deemed “National Tobacco Day…”

or the “Tobacco Harm Promotion Act

Tobacco Gateway Report Omits Important Information

Stan “Puff-N-Stuff” forgets again… there are people smarter than he “is”.

Tobacco Gateway Report Omits Important Information


Comparing the cancer potencies of emissions from vapourised nicotine products including e-cigarettes with those of tobacco smoke

I want my information in laymans terms because I am not a scientist, chemist, or professional with sciency skills… just by reading through what I can understand… in my hypothesis, 99% safER is the outcome.

Someone smarter than me can do the math.

“E-cigarette emissions span most of this range with the preponderance of products having potencies<1% of tobacco smoke”

Comparing the cancer potencies of emissions from vapourised nicotine products including e-cigarettes with those of tobacco smoke


The health impact of e-cigarettes they don’t want you to know

If less harm is truly the goal, speak often and loudly. If the strategy of convincing the public only of dangers sounds like a tragedy, it certainly is.

The health impact of e-cigarettes they don’t want you to know


Vapers in India are facing the fight of their lives

Worldwide troubles. NOT funny.

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.”

Survey!

Tara said this would make a great poll… 🙂

Who would you trust more with a billion dollars?

Dear Dr. Scott Gottlieb, MD, Commissioner:

A letter dated the 14th of June was sent to Dr. Scott Gottleib, Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration from who I would call true Tobacco Control experts.

Reform of tobacco and nicotine regulation at FDA


Do As You Are Told

Paul seems to have a distinct tone in his voice. I’m taking a shine to that.

Do As You Are Told


Does the Gateway Effect Really Exist?

I had not seen this before. A stunning view of the “gateway effect” by Sallie Goetsch – standing the test of time.

Does the Gateway Effect Really Exist?

Is the American Heart Association a terrorist organization?

“Sure, the AHA isn’t beheading people in the streets or strapping bombs on children. But that’s not the only way to be a terrorist organization, is it?”

Agent made this.


 

She changed it eventually and “scolded” me privately more than once – for using the one above…more than once…after it was modified.

Taking a life of its own, it was modified again and it now includes snus.

(Thank you Atakan.)

Ann, below with Greg Conley of the American Vaping Association at the Milwaukee premier of A Billion Lives, has sadly passed away.


It breaks my heart, as she was one of the first few people I followed early on Twitter (@agentania).

I, and I am sure like others, had oodles of messages and exchanges with her.  Everything from Kitty2 and her view(s) on a variety of topics.

Like a secret agent, Ann did things behind the scenes and wanted no credit.

Her spirit, spunk, snark, fight and her love will never die and is in all of us.


 

As Shannon relayed for us above, we will

NEVER STOP FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S RIGHT“.

 

As DrMA says below, in loving memory.

 

I’ll be blogging on Ann very soon.


 

I know you’re watching us, Agent.

O_O.

Rest, sweet Ann.
