Deadly agency nominated for award

Because you need to pat yourselves on the back for a pseudo-job well done. You have work to do with those states banning ‘our’ products on false pretenses. Now you have the tools.

Deadly agency nominated for award

Related:

Human beings died while we eluded to something else causing the problem – and that assumption caused cities and states to ban nicotine vaping products.

We’re still confusing the public. We’ll mention it, but we’re not going to blow the same budget resources admitting or rectifying blatant misconduct. But hey, look at us! We’re a finalist for an award!


Lessons From the Public Health Responses to the US Outbreak of Vaping-Related Lung Injury

You have work to do with those states banning ‘our’ products on false pretenses. Now you have the tools.

“The CDC’s public advice and the media were slow to report the evidence on the role of cannabis vaping. Popular government regulatory proposals – bans on sales of nicotine flavours and vaporisers – were based on the assumption that nicotine vaping was the cause of the outbreak.”

Nicotine Policy Should Not Be Exempt From Science

I’ve covered this here, but Jeff Stier does it so much better, here:

How ASH turned the views of just SIX smokers into a headline-grabbing 300k

Government math.

What’s that? Juul and Pave?

Dependence on e-cigarettes and cigarettes in a cross-sectional study of US adults.

From March, I don’t see it in my bookmarks… so here it is:

“Use of e-cigarettes appears to be consistently associated with lower #nicotine dependence than cigarette smoking.”

My notes: Also, a lower association with everything else such as health problems, narrative, taxes, revenue, & control. That’s why they’re mad.

Tobacco Harm Reduction: Evidence Update

Speaking of evidence, with this link, it isn’t the link. It’s the PDF within.

Things like this catch my eye:

“The same review suggested that if the rate of successfully quitting in a population without any assistance is 2-3 percent, the rate would only increase by 3-5 percent even if everyone used NRT. In fact, in order to produce only one additional successful cessation from tobacco, 56 people would need to be treated with NRT.

Your Right To Vape Is At Risk!

Um. Yes, yes it is. This short survey should take less than 2 minutes. It would make the Georgia vaping community very happy to see this filled out. Please share with your groups.

Your Right To Vape Is At Risk!

Three Takeaways From Filter’s Tobacco Harm Reduction and Health Justice Event

This piece from Dr. Sheila Vakharia, Helen Redmond, and Dr. Marewa Glover covers panic, prohibition and tobacco harm reduction from three well-respected professionals.

Three Takeaways From Filter’s Tobacco Harm Reduction and Health Justice Event

Measurements of electronic cigarette-generated particles for the evaluation of lung cancer risk of active and passive users

Pretty serious information being ignored by the masses in “public health”, I got a bit excited seeing this – and realized it was from 2018. Stranger, for some reason I didn’t have it in my bookmarks.

The explanation is “Excess Lifetime Cancer Risk is 5 orders of magnitude lower than that of mainstream traditional cigarettes smoke, and also lower than the guideline values defined by EPA and WHO.”

The explanation below – by Thad Marney via CASAA’s facebook group, (you are a member, right?) is critical to my understanding.

“For the record, one order of magnitude lower represents numbers that are at least 90% smaller, two orders of magnitude is at least 99% smaller, etc… So 5 orders of magnitude means e-cigarettes generate at least 99.999% less Excess Lifetime Cancer Risk than smoking, according to these measurements.”

I did not know that, Thad, and I thank you for explaining it.

Measurements of electronic cigarette-generated particles for the evaluation of lung cancer risk of active and passive users

“Think of the children™.”

The “debate” among vapers over the years of having children “for our side” in a courtroom continues. I’m all for it. Others not so much. The other side hides behind children. It’s two minutes long, and should be done at every hearing across the country.

The Grubby Face Of An Epidemic

Speaking of ‘epidemics’… Dave himself says “It is shocking and readers of a nervous disposition are advised to skip to the next article.”

Now you can make an informed choice. I crack me up.

McConnell: T21 Bill Will Open a Debate on Vaping and Children’s Health

Speaking of manipulation, Jim McDonald explains.

McConnell: T21 Bill Will Open a Debate on Vaping and Children’s Health

Why is America’s biggest tobacco company trying to increase the legal smoking age to 21?

For the serious in-depth reader. Not for the faint of heart.

My pal Ruth Malone is quoted: “90 percent of smokers start before they’re of legal age…”

FDA Holds Scientific Workshop on Youth E-Cigarette Cessation Treatment Strategies

I wouldn’t hold my breath, but… all sciencey… I’m… well, there it is, including “Gaps In Information” to include “needs to be better understood “, “the need to track these products”…

…and my favorite, contrary to the brain damage claim: “nicotine and other chemicals have on the neurodevelopmental stage for children are unknown“…
