Vaping In The News – February 1st, 2020

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.


Youth who use nicotine have rights. Stop punishing them. ~ There’s a right way and a wrong way to “Ditch JUUL” ~ Vape Ban – More Losers Than Winners ~ Lungs ‘magically’ heal damage from smoking ~ The Surgeon General’s Bogus Report on Smoking Cessation ~ World Health Organisation fails ~ Peak Australian GP body supports vaping ~ Nicotine Expert: Vaping is Unlikely to Cause Seizures ~ Vaping Causes Everything ~ The USSG Isn’t Helping ~ Policy Tip Sheet: Tobacco Harm Reduction 101: State Profiles


Youth who use nicotine have rights. Stop punishing them.

I cannot break my VITN tradition, I’ve seen Michael McGrady, and so shall you.

I will preface this article with my now age-old (pun intended) and thoughtful question: At what age is a smoker considered a “smoker”, and display one of my favoritest tweets ever:

You can choose to disagree if you like.

Youth who use nicotine have rights. Stop punishing them.


There’s a right way and a wrong way to “Ditch JUUL”

Speaking of teens…. this is from the MN Smoke Free Alliance. It is not only an articulate and precise way to educate children the adults in the education, “control”, parenting, and industry spaces, it is one of the best “wish I’d have written this” documents I’ve seen.

There’s a right way and a wrong way to “Ditch JUUL”


Vape Ban – More Losers Than Winners

Speaking of teens…. they are included in this piece. If you’re going to talk about, and the genuine goal is harm reduction – directly or indirectly, you will include teens in the conversation.

Vape Ban – More Losers Than Winners


Lungs ‘magically’ heal damage from smoking

Because Robert Innes pointed this article out to me, I’m quoting Mr. Innes here, he has a better foreword to the article than I:

“So much for the argument that, “we should only breathe clean, fresh air” and that our lungs are delicate. It would seem that our lungs are smarter at looking after themselves than the World Health Organisation FCTC and the doomsayers who claim DNA damage from vaping.”

The Surgeon General’s Bogus Report on Smoking Cessation

Recall my friend, Jerry wants smokers to quit – and admittedly doesn’t understand why… he claimed “I didn’t even know until this report came out that you can add as much as 10 years — a decade — to your life expectancy by quitting smoking…” in his speech last week.

Speaking of fraud, Dr. Rodu takes Jerry’s “report” to task.

Vaping In The News – January 25th, 2020

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.


They ALL lied ~ Peddlers of Ignorance ~ US Surgeon General is an educated idiot ~ The “Vape Apocalypse” is still the law. Only legislation can change that ~ Will Trump Stop the FDA’s May 11 Vape Apocalypse? ~ Azar Promises Streamlined PMTA Approval for Small Vape Businesses ~ Where Did Underage Vapers Get E-Cigs ~ WHO Vape Report Misleading ~ E-cigarettes: how risky are they?


They ALL lied

No compound that could be linked to EVALI was found in the two nicotine products tested.

“Our laboratory was the first to identify vitamin E acetate in vaporizer fluids recovered from pulmonary injury patients, which we promptly reported to officials of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and public health officials from numerous states via conference call and via e-mail on August 19, 2019…”

Leafly covered this in September. We ALL know they ALL lied, since at LEAST August. EVALI shall now be renamed as CALIE. (#CDC-associated lung injury epidemic) (CALIE) is ™,©, and ® via @mihotep, 2020.

Vitamin E acetate in products used by the first cases of EVALI in New York State


Peddlers of Ignorance

Robert Innes takes on the idiots at the World Health Organization and has a twist on the “ENDS” acronym I have hated the moment I saw it.

Peddlers of Ignorance


US Surgeon General is an educated idiot

I do like to keep you informed, but please, do not read this on an empty stomach.

As the latest report on smoking in the U.S. was written, vetted, and phamaceutically (yes I made that up) approved, the idiot wasted no time in a speech covering the report he didn’t write by exclaiming – or explaining – jury’s still out – to the country:

I didn’t even know until this report came out that you can add as much as 10 years — a decade — to your life expectancy by quitting smoking,” he said.

Here’s his speech in writing:

US Surgeon General is an educated idiot

Bonus idiot alert:

I’ve asked this a gazillion times: At what age is a “smoker” considered a “smoker”? (I was 9 when I started, by 11 or so I was pretty well set in my ways… )

By Jerry’s standards, “teens” who quit smoking (with vaping or any other product) is beneficial regardless of how long they’ve smoked, or their age.

Please note my response to the idiots tweet, and of course, Dr. Sheila Vakharia’s as well.

Will Trump Stop the FDA’s May 11 Vape Apocalypse?

Jim McDonald takes coverage of the fight businesses face, and journalism to a much higher and respectable level, here’s an example:

Will Trump Stop the FDA’s May 11 Vape Apocalypse?


Speaking of Jim McDonald, *possession*……


Azar Promises Streamlined PMTA Approval for Small Vape Businesses

This, with an audio interview, is interesting. I’ve quoted, in part, a piece of what HHS Secretary Azar stated:

“We’re working with small businesses & the vaping association to actually create pathways that would streamline approval for the open tank small vape shop based products” … of course, Jim McDonald covers it all below.

Azar Promises Streamlined PMTA Approval for Small Vape Businesses


Where Did Underage Vapers Get E-Cigs

I stole this one directly from our friends at Vapers.org.UK…. and I should not have to type Dr. RODU’s name more than once, but I will… (are you new here)?

Dr. Rodu is on this…. and explains:

Unsurprisingly, underage teen vapers were mainly motivated by curiosity (50%).  That may be a response to the FDA’s poorly crafted vaping epidemic ad campaign………….” 

Where Did Underage Vapers Get E-Cigs


WHO Vape Report Misleading

Globally, they’ve run out of ideas, the vitamin E acetate isn’t working out to their advantage… and by that, I mean the wheels on the bus go round and round, rehashing old clickbait – into new clickbait sounds appealing.

WHO Vape Report Misleading


E-cigarettes: how risky are they?

The Science of Nicotine and Weight Loss

I was referred to this by the #CrankyOldBroad. Not only does it discuss the possibility nicotine and weight loss, it clearly states:

It’s interesting to note that while tobacco is addictive, pure nicotine actually is not. It is the monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) in tobacco that leads to addiction, so people taking nicotine who are not exposed to monoamine oxidase inhibitors do not necessarily suffer addiction and withdrawal from the substance

That is interesting to note

FDA Performance Measures

Smoking is a government-run business. You people need to stop quitting smoking before they go out of business.

The U.S. FDA’s “keep smoking we need the money” train involves predictions and profit.

So far, government, public “health” groups, researchers, tobacco “control” & other funded “experts” have record losses totalling $72.96 Billion dollars in 11 short years.

Less smoking is concerning for at least 6 “health” groups

It seems “less smoking” is a concern – and an investigation is warranted. Of course…

Their problem? The “unauthorized” claims that the company’s e-cigarettes help users stop smoking. I remember one of the brilliant ads showing “Quit. Start smoking again“. Thirty times. Why? Because it’s truthful on the average number of times smokers try to quit (here). Brilliant. That you’ve allegedly pissed off your secret partners with Tobacco-Free Kids? Even though I despise you, well done, Juul.

These groups aren’t going after the companies making “authorized” government “approved” claims of patches or gums being “helpful” to smokers, unethically, and more specifically, from themselves? They’ve known these facts since at least 2002.

Even Stan “Stuff & Puff” Glantz “believes” nicotine replacement therapy “should only be available if the smoker commits to regular counseling to use it properly”. He states in the same article “The tobacco companies are generally 20 or 30 years ahead of the public health community in their thinking about their issues”… which gives me a whole lot of nope trusting an alleged “expert” with 30+ years playing one around the country.

I don’t use the “do not link” for this one – because I want them to know where this hit comes from. I also enjoy it when I get hits from them on occasion. (“Hi, Matt!”)
