Teen Smoking Drops, Gateway Closes, Unicorns Unemployed

Nobody wants to talk about gateway enthusiasts being wrong. No one likes to hear Unicorns are out of work. I do.

Kids sure don’t smoke like they used to.

Evaluation of the safety profile of a (e-cig)

vapour product used for two years – in a real-life setting

Researchers took it upon themselves to lure smokers out of the wild with e-cigarettes.

When the tax stamp covers the health warning label

“the growing threat that untaxed and smuggled tobacco products have on public health”

Isn’t the threat is exactly the same? This is an excellent example of not helping and a waste of valueable resources.  As a smoker, you could have put a piece of my own lung on a pack of smokes and it would not have deterred me for a second.

Oh, wait,  this is about funding. Silly me. Silly researchers.

“At War With The Tobacco Industry”

Two words: Dick Puddlecoat.

“At War With The Tobacco Industry”


Who forced the cigarette companies to run those anti-smoking ads

It had to be Stan “Puff-N-Stuff” Glantz, of course. Because he is a twit, Stanton Glantz wants to take subtle credit for it before his demise. Written much better than Stan can, it looks as if he may, or might (not sure) have added a line or two in the article, but is taking full credit. Not that I’d ever accuse him of stealing anyone else’s work or anything.

This is in a “do not link” format so there is no credit for search engines. Click away. My comments on the article have not been addressed, but I encourage you to comment on this article.

10 Year Corporate Affairs, Strategies (“leaked” document from PMI)

I’m not sure how “confidential” this “is”. Go ahead, look. You know you want to.

22 Million New Smokers Needed: Funding SCHIP Expansion with a Tobacco Tax (2007)

Thanks, Big Bacon Moe!

I’ve said this a thousand times. Tobacco taxes are a Ponzi Scheme. Higher tax to have less smokers pay more to fight smoking is insideous. It’s a Ponzi Scheme.

22 Million New Smokers Needed: Funding SCHIP Expansion with a Tobacco Tax


Stop-smoking drug increases the risk of a heart attack by up to 34% AND is linked to self-harm

Stop recommending it. Stop promoting it. Stop taking it. Just stop.

Stop-smoking drug hailed as ‘the most effective medication’ for ditching cigarettes, increases the risk of a heart attack by up to 34% AND is linked to self-harm, study finds


JNCI study finds pharmaceutical stop smoking aids ineffective

When WILL the FDA make a statement about this?
#EveryTryCounts = Political Front Group campaign to sell ineffective “aids”.
 
“NO evidence”…
 
“more than a dozen population level studies screaming the ineffectiveness”
 
“Who benefits by deceiving smokers?”
 
My question is, who will be held accountable for past and future claims?
 

VapesGiving™

$190,000 was the amount commited by Naked 100 Eliquid, and the total amount raised to fund the future was $332,183.

“In just one week, over $142,183 was donated by manufacturers, distributors, vape shops, and Vapers.”

VapesGiving Donors


This week from me:

What We Know:

Inspired by the FDA’s “Every Try Counts” campaign:

Can You Quit

Admitting the deception and ineffectiveness of “government-approved” quit smoking methods is being forced out of their mouths by people like you and I. Keep doing that.

Can you quit smoking with patches and gums?


Challenging Lies about Nicotine Addiction

The recent articles showing “approved” methods to help smokers do not work has inspired me to solicit the wife to unstrap my straight jacket and grab my crayons again




Seasons Greetings!

Happy Holidays!

VapesGiving Event Aims to Raise Huge Funding Goals to help Advocacy

Instead of focusing on what “can’t” be done, consider what CAN be done. Considering what is at stake, there is NO reason #VapesGiving can’t raise millions with this movement. This is beyond overdue.

Companies, including manufacturers, are joining with multiple advocacy groups to raise what should be nothing short of millions to attain results at any and all levels.

If you are IN business and not doing “anything”, I implore you to assess this and make some noise by making a difference. If you are already, I thank you.

Focus, people.

Feds Owe the Public ‘Corrective Statements’ on Vaping

The verdict is in if you’re in the United States, you’re seeing tobacco companies court-ordered advertising on television for the 1st time since the 70’s. Sally Satel & Guy Bentley explain why the Feds owe the public the same courtesy.

While they mention the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Surgeon General, I can come up with a list of defendants in other parts of this blog upon request.

Feds Owe the Public ‘Corrective Statements’ on Vaping


Long-term vaping causes no negative health results [new study]

Last week, I inadvertantly skipped this article by Jim McDonald.

“They found that the vapers had no negative health outcomes, and in fact showed results that were virtually indistinguishable from those of the non-vapers.”

Indistinguishable. This study extinguishes concerns, certainly, as to a smoker switching or dual using, and the very few and hard to find, who may take up vaping as opposed to smoking.

Moving beyond vaping as a cessation-only practice

Choice. What a stunningly great idea! Huh!

Global Manipulation

of the “De-addiction” product market:

DE-Addiction. Anything describing what doesn’t work for the most part needs have a fresh and innovative new name!

We’re “anecdotal” my vaping ass. Now there’s more evidence we’re not.

“Given the government’s own evidence, it’s time to acknowledge the scientific legitimacy, value and benefit of e-cigarettes with respect to the health of the population.”

What a week.

Tobacco Control experts are having a bad week with credibility, integrity

Senator Todd Kaminsky claims: “Vaping nearly doubled”.
