Considerable evidence suggests that e-cigarettes are an effective smoking-cessation tool for adults in the United States, where hundreds of thousands of people die of smoking-related illness each year.
Kenneth Warner, dean emeritus and the Avedis Donabedian Distinguished University Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health, says, however, that the potential of vaping to increase smoking cessation has been largely overshadowed by media coverage and policies that focus on the potential risk vaping represents for teens.
I have an email in with Joe Buscaino’s office right now probing a little further. As an LA Resident, I would kind of love to support this guy, especially if he has a reasonable stance on harm reduction and adult use of vapor products. I haven’t used the sentence “Vape Friendly CA Politician” ever I don’t think.
I’m remaining cautiously optimistic and waiting to hear back from his office before giving this guy my support. Let me know YOUR gut feeling down below. Is it possible to have politicians that don’t bend to billionaires?
The last two years have seen efforts in state and local governmentsacross the country to ban all flavors in e-cigarettes and even to ban all flavored tobacco products. These bans—some implemented and many others wisely turned back—attempt to combat a youth vaping epidemic by adopting a narrative largely constructed by the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids and Parents Against Vaping E-Cigarettes, anti-tobacco advocacy groups funded by billionaire Michael Bloomberg. These groups champion unproven tenets that vapor products are a gateway to cigarette use for children and that eliminating all flavored tobacco products will stop children from becoming cigarette smokers.
I didn’t realize there was another follow up to the 2018 Study with roughly the same name. This was published in October 2020 and once again follows up on 29 of the original 44 smoking adults involved in the study. The aim of the study? “a long-term prospective assessment of respiratory parameters in a cohort of COPD patients who ceased or substantially reduced conventional cigarette use with ECs.”
Is it acceptable to distort the truth to get people to do what you want them to do?
Welcome back to Tuesday Bro NEWSDAY. New name, new co-host / fact checker, same reliable industry news and commentary. Timestamps are the first pinned comment underneath this video.
Today’s topics include: Youth Vaping Trends. What does the CDC National Youth Tobacco Survey data say about Youth Vaping Trends? Arielle Selya has a new study and a Twitter thread explaining these trends. We also have some new about the FDA Lawsuit that has been simmering in the background for a while.
I also have to mention how FDA tried to squeeze a $14,000 “fee” from companies that switch to hand sanitizer during the COVID19 pandemic. Then lastly we are going to read about Fauci and masks, the parallels to vaping are uncanny.
We will be going through many of the regular segments this week including Beer, Retro Vaping, Liquid Tasting and more. I know I have some mail this week. Got a cool new Cthulhu mod. Last call for vape mail everyone!! we have to convince “boomer” politicians like Diane Feinstein why it’s important to us. Otherwise this should be a lot of fun, Gates open, come on in!!
All Timestamps and pertinent links from the program will be down below.
Welcome back to Tuesday Bro Tuesday. Same show by name only. Each week for roughly an hour and a half we will all be discussing the topics of the day. As well as current breaking news from the world of vaping, nicotine and tobacco harm reduction.
Today’s Topics include: Discrediting the myth making machine. Florida AG Ashley Moody is clueless, WHO is clueless ( but also kind of gets it right somehow) And YouTube is clueless and appears to hate smokers.
Time for some cathartic rage sweat. All links from the show will be below
Our government says e-cigarettes and vaping are the latest “epidemic” among teens. So the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says it will restrict them. Cities across the country are banning e-cigarette use in public. But e-cigarettes help smokers quit traditional cigarettes.
Michelle Minton of the Competitive Enterprise Institute tells John Stossel that people have misconceptions about e-cigarettes. “It’s about 95 percent less harmful than a normal traditional cigarette,” she says. That’s because e-cigarettes let people get a hit of nicotine without actually burning tobacco. The burning of paper and tobacco leaves is what makes cigarettes so dangerous.
My dude PoonSauce invited me on his live stream this weekend. We had a really fantastic conversation about vaping, advocacy, burn out, smoking, science. Had a lot of fun. Definitely worth checking out the replay IMO.
