Vaping In The News – September 30th, 2017

scream test bw

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.

Their statement is here.

This is #louder.

“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.”

Letter to the World Health Organization

André Calantzopoulos CEO of Philip Morris had this to say:

Open Response to Letter of 14 September 2017 calling on PMI to stop selling cigarettes


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?

I’ve asked this question a thousand times… why are they promoting smoking?

What are the ramifications of their deceit?

Bad Laws

This was posted in a group I belong to on Facebook. There is common sense in the world. When I, or someone else finds common sense content, I get a little giddy…

“Full Disclosure: I’ve never smoked tobacco in my life. And, I personally don’t like candy or sweets.”

“Stop inane, petty laws before they hurt people.”

Bad Laws Hurt People

Tobacco Use On The Rise

Speaking of BAD laws. The “Tobacco 21” movement can already suffer a loss. Seems the town of Cohasset had enacted the law last year and can already show a “spike”… in 12th graders – it went from 9% to 33% in two years…

Here’s where they blame the perception, and of course the children, not the ineffective law.

Now where have I… … … oh, yes….

Here it is:

Classification of Twitter Users

I’m beyond grateful an investigation of e-cigarettes includes tweets. How could the world survive without this study? Certainly, there’ll never be any progress without finding valuable information about Twitter users tweeting what experts can’t figure out – and I’m glad to be of service.

Classification of Twitter Users Who Tweet About E-Cigarettes

Social Media Snooping

Now, if they spent more time reading the tweets rather than investigating them…My friend Paul takes a look at

Social Media Snooping


This is more like “de-addiction” to their revenue……….and they don’t LIKE it.

I LOVE it when the disruption is SO blatant and clear… and it’s in print.

Pfft… “de-addiction”…

“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”.

Here’s where the American Cancer Society decides it concludes it doesn’t have any conclusions after more than ten years, in classic “run on sentence” and confusing fashion.

Vaping In The News ~ July 15th


Vaping In The News

July 9th – 15th, 2017

I am a Vaper ~ ♫ I’m just a shill… ♫ ~ That word ~ Brian Fojtic ~ Coffee ~ Colin Mendelsohn ~ Deeming Regulations ~ THR4Life

I am a Vaper

“I am a vaper. That’s not a confession, by the way; it’s a statement I’m proud to make. I used to smoke and now I don’t. For many that’s a difficult journey, but it doesn’t have to be.”

I am a Vaper, and I am one of #ABillionLives

It’s a two-fer from Sparkles!

♫ I’m just a shill… ♫

I wonder…

When will W.H.O. stop tobacco “CONtrol” from interfering with success of e-cigarettes instead of denying their proven potential and continuing their agenda of the fiscal con.


I’m calling on a resolution to prevent all tobacco control activites.

Here’s where WHO FCTC pretends to bite the hand that feeds them:

Are you familiar with INNCO?


That word….

Did you “quit”? Did you “stop”? Did you “switch”?

David Dorn speaks about “That word….”

That word….

 Brian Fojtic

“Miller expressed concerns about misleading messages coming from tobacco control groups and government agencies”

Democrat Attorney General Encourages FDA to Reconsider E-Cigarette Regs


Like nicotine, coffee is life.

Scary words – nicotine and caffeine….

I do love my coffee –

Drinking coffee could lead to a longer life


Associate Professor Colin Mendelsohn:

Australia is still facing one of the most idiotic fights to keep people smoking in the world. Quit or die is an ineffective and worn out calling card –  to keep smokers smoking.

Do you know about NNA?


Deeming Regulations

If you had doubts about the proposed new vaping rules in the House Agriculture Appropriations Bill — now working its way through the House committee process — take some comfort knowing that vaping’s biggest enemy doesn’t like it one bit. Maybe that’s a good sign.

Here’s Jim McDonald with that:

Possible change to deeming regulations scares our enemies
