RESEARCH // Vape Junk Science
Researchers continue to claim teen vaping is a “gateway” to cigarette smoking, while IGNORING REAL WORLD STATISTICS that, despite their study predictions, prove TEEN SMOKING HAS DECLINED TO RECORD LOWS as vaping increased. Additionally, when vaping drops, smoking rises!
No one ever answers this question. Maybe you can?

RESEARCH // Exposing Anti-Vaping Bias
“Study” from anti-vaping Stanton Glantz et. al. completely ignores MILLIONS of adults who successfully QUIT SMOKING in the past decade from buying vapor products as “consumer products,” rather than as pharmaceutical products, followed by RECORD LOW adult and youth smoking rates that cannot be explained by taxes, smoking bans or tobacco control propaganda. The real world data completely contradicts their limited observations. It seems apparent that the ANTZ (Anti-Nicotine and Tobacco Zealots, as they’re called in the THR advocacy community) will be pushing for Australian-style regulations, (ie. requiring vapor products to only be available under prescription.)
I regret to inform you that Stanton Glantz and the University of San Francisco, California are at it again. https://t.co/rkqKZpUVtB

I’ve read the article, which in fact explicitly states- unless they used e-cigs daily or as part of one of several quit smoking studies, in which case it was found that they indeed DID help adult smokers quit.
Is it so hard to admit that they CAN provide cessation in some cases?

TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION // Switching IS Quitting
In the UK, public health officially endorses vaping to quit smoking. Lisa may still consume nicotine, but she has QUIT SMOKING, reducing her health risks by at least 95%. It’s not the nicotine that causes the harm, it’s the SMOKE!
Public health in the UK is amazing. Like how Public Health England reports on e-cigarettes' reduced harm.

BAD PUBLIC HEALTH POLICY // Pushing Youth Back To Smoking
The number of teens who use tobacco products fell 28% in 2020, however, due to public health propaganda lying about the risks, teens mainly quit using the LOWEST RISK products, while smoking rates remained unchanged.
The declines were driven largely by lower use of e-cigarettes, cigars and smokeless tobacco products.”
Underage tobacco use has fallen this year, a decline that started even before the U.S. quarantines and lockdowns https://t.co/UN1xIkejiB

HEADS UP // Prior Lake, Minnesota
It’s already illegal for anyone under 21 to purchase vaping products, so city’s plan to ban flavors will just make it that much harder for ADULTS to buy low risk, flavored vaping products than to buy deadly cigarettes.
