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.

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.

The “Vape Apocalypse” is still the law. Only legislation can change that.

VITN rules apply for this next one from Michael McGrady… thinking caps:

The “Vape Apocalypse” is still the law. Only legislation can change that.

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.

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………….”

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.

E-cigarettes: how risky are they?

This isn’t about health, see Dave’s version of the W.H.O.’s “position” here:
