German Court Sentences an E-Liquid Vendor 90 Days Before ‘Legalisation’ by The TPD.

12th February 2016

There are strange goings on in Germany a mere 90 days before the Tobacco Products Directive comes into force. A Court in Frankfurt has convicted and fined an e-cigarette retailer €9,000 for selling “illegal oral tobacco products” in the summer of 2013, yet e-liquid has been freely sold in Germany since e-cigarettes first came onto the market. The reason for this ruling, it appears is due to the way that this particular court has viewed e-liquid. They believe that it is a tobacco product, as the nicotine for the e-liquid is extracted from tobacco, despite there being no tobacco present in the…

Has The American Lung Association Given The Middle Finger To Vapers?

5th February 2016

Professor Siegal certainly believes they have done, and writes so on his blog. He’s referring to the almost hysterical reporting surrounding images of Leonardo DiCaprio vaping at an award ceremony. Professor Siegal’s entire career has been in tobacco control and he is a staunch critic of many in public health. In his post he quotes the American Lung Association (ALA) who state, "the Lung Association does not support using them (e-cigs) for cessation, nor does it support any direct or implied claims that e-cigarettes help smokers quit." It is this quote and accompanying attitude that he feels tells those vapers that have…

E-Cigarettes Now the Most Popular Method to Stop Tobacco Use in the UK

29th January 2016

E-cigarette users are smokers looking to quit. The Smoking Toolkit Study (STS) has been collecting vital information regarding smoking and cessation habits in the UK since 2011. It also looks at vaping and vaping habits, and though the explosive use in e-cigarettes has levelled, e-cigarette use is still rising. E-cigarettes are now the most popular method used to move away from tobacco. Professor Robert West, Professor of Health Psychology, Health Behaviour Research Centre, Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, University College London is closely involved with the STS and said; “E-cigarette users are smokers looking to cut down or ex-smokers using them to…

The US Makes Childproof Packaging for E-Liquid The Law

15th January 2016

A new bill is passed and awaiting signature. The USA is finally catching up with the UK, and is in the process of passing a bill requiring all e-liquids to be sold in childproof bottles. Congress has passed the bill and now it only requires the President’s signature. Called the Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act, it is intended to keep children safer. The move has been welcomed by Vaping groups, "it is common sense," Cynthia Cabrera, president of the Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Associations said, "These are adult products and should be treated like adult products." Heath officials and consumer advocates have been concerned for a…

University of Cambridge Finds E-Cig Advertising Has No Impact on Youth Smoking

11th January 2016

A new study, yet to be published shows that e-cigarette advertising does not increase youth smoking. The study, undertaken by Cambridge University studied 471 children aged between the ages of 11-16. Each child was given a series of e-cigarette advertisements to look at, of both flavoured and non-flavoured devices. The researchers then asked the children their opinions regarding the adverts, and if they were more inclined to smoke as a result of seeing them. The researchers found that, “Exposure to either set of adverts did not increase the appeal of tobacco smoking, the appeal of using e-cigarettes, or susceptibility to tobacco…

Unpicking the Headlines to Find the Truth about E-cigarettes

4th January 2016

Frightening headlines hit the newspaper stands at the end of December reporting on one study, where the lead scientist stated her belief that e-cigarettes are just as bad as tobacco cigarettes and can cause cancer. The timing of this story was interesting, as it was released at the very time that most of us are thinking of our New Year resolutions and many are trying to stop smoking. However, eminent scientist and anti-tobacco expert Professor Linda Bauld took a closer look at the study and she found no evidence that e-cigarettes are as harmful as tobacco cigarettes. Writing for the Guardian newspaper, Linda…

Did the Chief Medical Officer try and stop Public Health England?

17th December 2015

News has emerged that appears to show that the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) and a prominent anti e-cigarette campaigner, Martin McKee tried to stop Public Health England from embarking upon the project that ultimately led to the conclusion that e-cigs are 95% less harmful than tobacco. Writing on his blog, Dick Puddlecoat describes that a Freedom of Information request that was initially rebuffed due to ‘too much correspondence,’ has ultimately led to the discovery of many emails between the CMO and Martin McKee. Dick wrote, ‘Further emails show that McKee and the FPH planned to cite Framework Convention on Tobacco Control declarations…

Absurd outdoor vaping area ignored by MPs

4th December 2015

The Sun Newspaper this week reported on a vaping area in Parliament that is completely ignored by MPs. Built with taxpayer’s money, the vaping area is nothing more than blue board on the ground with the words ‘vaping area’ painted on it, costing apparently hundreds of pounds. One outraged MP told The Sun: “They’re a waste of time and money. They've put a bit plywood down and spray painted ‘VAPING AREA’ on the floor and I've never seen a single person use them.” The area was created after MPs were told they could no longer vape in their offices, though many apparently still…

Non-pharmaceutical nicotine-delivery products are not beneficial to the public.

26th November 2015

This, according to Joel Nitzkin for the online magazine rstreet.org, is the core belief underlying the public health crusade against e-cigarettes. Citing two letters from Professor Glantz, a top anti e-cig campaigner in the USA, in the first letter Glantz urges the FDA to, “prohibit any non-drug product from claiming it offers “satisfaction” or “nicotine hit.” This strikes as odd, and as one commentator mentioned, “So, if only drugs offer satisfaction, should we also not be satisfied by non-drug categorized foods or alcohol?” In the second letter Glantz ‘opines that drugs need to be tested both for safety and efficacy; non-drug tobacco-related products…
