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.

“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.”
André Calantzopoulos CEO of Philip Morris had this to say:
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?

“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”.
