CASAA Counter Flyer to TFUK Poster

"There is no honest content whatsoever in the invocation of what these chemicals are sometimes used for; this information is irrelevant, but the reader is led to assume it is meaningful and to draw the obvious conclusion about what it means.  The only reason for including those words is to mislead the reader."
- Dr. Carl Phillips (http://antithrlies.wordpress.com/2012/08/26/chemophobia)

"This [Tobacco-Free UK] poster contains a host of misleading statements, a scientific claim without any evidence, and an outright lie, as well as extremely damaging and irresponsible medical advice. "
- Dr. Michael Siegel (http://tobaccoanalysis.blogspot.com/2012/08/tobacco-free-uk-declares-that.html)

“It baffles me that, despite accumulating evidence attesting to the use of e-cigarettes as effective smoking cessation devices, prominent public health organizations continue to emphasize the alleged dangers of allowing these products on the market. They cite the bizarrely unscientific statements attributed to former assistant FDA commissioner Josh Sharfstein in 2009, when he misled smokers trying to quit by targeting ‘carcinogens’ in e-cigarette vapor. Dr. Hahn should be equally ashamed of such irresponsible assertions, which will cost smokers their health and their lives.”
- Dr. Gilbert Ross, American Council on Science and Health (http://www.acsh.org/factsfears/newsid.3827/news_detail.asp)
