Even though numerous federal agencies have gone on record in recent months claiming that vaping is a gateway to teen smoking, multiple college-level studies are coming to light that definitively refute these claims. According to a research paper jointly published in January 2017 by scientists from two major American universities, there is absolutely no scientific evidence to suggest that e-cigarettes lead anyone, especially teenagers, to eventually smoke combustible cigarettes.
A highly-regarded law professor from the University of California Berkley is approaching the subject of vaping as a smoking cessation tool from a legal rather than ethical viewpoint. According to Professor Stephen D. Sugarman, the U.S. government is missing a tremendous opportunity to advance public health by refusing to encourage vaping as a nicotine replacement therapy.
Donald Trump appears to have finally settled on former GlaxoSmithKline consultant Scott Gottlieb as his nominee to head the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a decision that may threaten the American vaping industry. Gottlieb is a former FDA official of the George W. Bush era with long-standing ties to Big Pharma and the biotech industries. The venture capitalist has reported received more than $400,000 in payments from pharmaceutical companies between 2013 and 2015 alone.
A new study recently released by scientists from Portland State University (PSU) refutes the controversial argument that e-cig vapor may contain alarmingly high levels of benzene, a chemical known to cause cancer. Reminiscent of the days when the FDA, the CDC, and several other anti-vaping organizations would spread false rumors of formaldehyde-inducing vaping devices, the PSU researchers attempt to make a similar deadly connection. However, their scientific conclusions ultimately prove the opposite point of view.
Dr. Sanjay Agrawal is a world-class physician specializing in cancer-related respiratory ailments who also just happens to be an instructor at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust in the UK. He is considered such a remarkable expert in his fields of expertise that he was a recently invited speaker to the 2016 World Conference of Lung Cancer (WCLC) of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) in Vienna, Austria.
Have you ever wondered by Democrats seem to hate vaping but love legalized marijuana? It seems that every time a new piece of federal, state, or local legislation is proposed that will ban or restrict vaping in any way, the Democrats always vote “yes” across the board. Meanwhile, this same political party is always quick to lend a supportive political hand to the weed industry any time that a state wants to make it legal. What gives?
While American public health agencies spend enormous amounts of time and money demonizing vaping, the UK considers electronic cigarettes to be a major contributing factor for the nation’s lowest number of current smokers since 1974.
A new study recently published by a group of UK scientists indicates that switching to vaping from smoking conventional cigarettes can substantially lower the levels of cancer-causing toxins in the body by as much as 98 percent. But there’s a catch. Vapers must give up smoking completely. No dual usage is allowed.
A new piece of proposed legislation in Canada is making the rounds of the parliament which could lead to hefty fines and even jail time for vaping advocates who even discuss the many health benefits of vaping. The new bill is known as Bill S-5, and it is aimed primarily at researchers, scholars, and scientists who predominately work in the field of vaping and e-cigs.
