  • Reject the FDA's Deeming of Vapor Products as Tobacco Products

    https://www.change.org/p/u-s-senate-u-s-house-of-representatives-president-of-the-united-states-reject-the-fda-s-deeming-of-vapor-products-as-tobacco-products-2

    Soon Congress will be presented with regulations proposing to deem electronic cigarettes and other vapor products as tobacco products, bringing them within the regulatory control of the FDA under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.

    We, the members of the vaping community, including users of vapor products, current and ex smokers, concerned citizens, and friends and family of those whose lives have been or could be changed by vapor products, urge you to reject the proposed deeming regulations.

    The classification of vapor products as tobacco products is tenuous at best. While some vapor products do contain nicotine, many do not, and this is where the link to tobacco ends. The goal of the FSPTCA is to minimize the effects of tobacco on public health. In 1976 Professor Michael Russell wrote: “People smoke for nicotine but they die from the tar.”1 Vapor products are free of tobacco, contain no tar, and are not combusted and as such are orders of magnitude less potentially harmful than combustible tobacco.2  In fact, more recent studies that look at nicotine, absent tobacco smoke, show that nicotine is possibly not addictive and could have potential health benefits related to treating Parkinson’s symptoms and staving off Alzheimer’s.3

    The Federal government and each state have spent hundreds of millions over decades attempting to discourage people from smoking cigarettes. We now have a viable alternative to tobacco products that could do just that, through tobacco harm reduction. This life changing technology has the potential to accomplish what Tobacco Control has failed to do for the past fifty years, unless it is smothered in its infancy. Vapor products, as a recreational consumer good, have the potential to replace combustible tobacco, keeping millions from potential tobacco related illnesses. According to recent CDC surveys, in the time frame that vapor products have been available, smoking rates in the United States have plummeted to an all time low.4 However, if vapor products are subjected to the same strict regulatory control intended to minimize harm from tobacco products, they could be rendered ineffectual due to the stifling nature of those regulations.5

    By rejecting the classification of vapor products as tobacco products we can:

    1              Protect access to flavors, which are an integral part of the vapor experience.6

    2              Protect access to online sales that allow consumers to procure the equipment and e-liquids that are best suited for their needs.

    3              Protect access to all nicotine concentrations, which allow the consumer to tailor their experience to their needs which could range from higher concentrations to aid in transitioning from smoking to nicotine free for enjoyment and maintenance.

    4              Protect access to open, reusable container systems that are more cost effective and environmentally friendly.

    5             Allow for the continued innovation and refinement of products currently on the market.

    Vapor products are not tobacco products, they are a safer alternative to tobacco products which may or may not contain nicotine. Vapor products are also a driving force behind thousands of small and medium businesses across the country, creating jobs and feeding the economy, many of which will not survive the exorbitant fee structure of tobacco product approval that has kept the cigarette market in the hands of only the major tobacco companies. The vapor product industry has already gained ground in self regulation by the formation of industry trade groups, and through the active involvement of the consumers.7 Instead of relegating vapor products to tobacco control, a new category of product regulation can be implemented, one that could inspire innovation along with public health and safety. The best way to protect this life altering technology is to not place it under the auspices of the FSPTCA, by not deeming vapor products as tobacco products.

  • We don't have to be quiet about San Francisco's lethal decision to ban flavor

     

    LOUDLY OPPOSE THE SAN FRANCISCO FLAVOR BAN!

    (Update - 06.22.17)

    In a surprise move, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed the ordinance that will ban the sale of flavored e-liquid and smoke-free tobacco products within the city. Although this move could be dismissed as expediting the process, it doesn't make this ordinance any less reckless and dangerous. The Board will vote one more time, next week, to make the decision final.

    But the Board's decision doesn't mean we have to quietly take their abuse. On the contrary, we must voice our opposition and do it loudly!

     

    What happened in San Francisco is just the start of a shortsighted policy movement that will restrict our access to low-risk tobacco and nicotine products. Anti-vaping activists in New Jersey and New York City will use San Francisco's decision as support for their own proposals. And we should all be aware that proposals to ban or limit flavors are being discussed in Washington, DC.

    This is not just about San Francisco. The Board of Supervisor's decision has NATIONAL consequences.

    If smoke-free products that come in flavors other than tobacco have helped you significantly reduce or quit smoking, please take action NOW! (This is not limited to residents of San Francisco).

    Click Here to Take Action!

     

    (Update - 06.22.17)

    The San Francisco flavor ban was hastily passed by the full Board of Supervisors at their regular meeting on Tuesday, June 20th. One more vote--which is expected to be unanimous--is all that's needed to make the decision official.

    That doesn't mean we have to stop raising opposition to this misguided (lethal) policy.

    Please take a moment now to send a message to the full Board of Supervisors urging them to reconsider adoption of this ordinance.

  • Vaping is the reason for massive decline in United Kingdoms cigarette smoking

    New data released today in the UK show that smoking has declined from 20.2% of the British adult population in 2010 to 15.8% last year.

    The rate of decline demonstrated in the ONS data is astonishing, especially between 2015 and 2016, which saw the second biggest annual drop in smoking in 40 years. Vaping is almost certainly responsible for this, with an estimated 1.5 million vapers in the UK according to ASH UK.

    The UK Centre for Alcohol and Tobacco Studies press office said: “Today’s new figures indicate UK smoking is falling faster than would be expected from conventional tobacco control approaches. While all the policies put in place will have made a difference, the most likely explanation for the recent rapid decline is the increasing use by smokers of electronic cigarettes as a substitute for tobacco”

    It’s worth noting that this 2015-16 period was one in which Public Health England and the Royal College of Physicians began to openly encourage smokers to transition to vaping products. It’s likely that this “official” sanctioning of vaping for smokers has had a trans-formative effect on smokers, especially those who had been misled by negative media stories.

    Shamefully, not one single major health body in the US has taken the same brave stance and encouraged smokers to make the transition. The health community of America has instead constructed an extraordinary campaign of misinformation which continues to vilify one of the most promising public health interventions. Despite the misinformation, vaping has continued to grow with peer-to-peer education

    The divergent course between the UK and the USA is starting to become clear. While the UK continues to see rapid declines in smoking under a relatively liberal vaping regulation, the FDA is embarking on a prohibitive rule which will profoundly disrupt access to the products that are currently available.

  • Bactericidal action of propylene glycol shows benefits

    www.vapage.com amazing BACTERICIDAL ACTION OF PROPYLENE GLYCOL BACTERICIDAL ACTION OF PROPYLENE GLYCOL evidence! www.vapage.com

    Is this true? Can this be? Propylene glycol vapor kills bacteria? We want to ask our blog readers, is this for real? The National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine is the entity publishing this information. We would never spread misinformation about the safety and effects of vaping.  Using propylene glycol vapor products and listing them as antibacterial seems inevitable once more scientific testing has concluded what this report suggests.

    What an amazing world it will be when vaping products will be more than just for flavor and help analog smokers transition to safe e-cig products. Fingers crossed that our government can find more reasons to show that propylene glycol vapor is benign and safe.

  • Are e-cigarettes a safe alternative to cigarettes? Prager University video

    Are e-cigarettes a safe alternative to cigarettes? Could they help millions of smokers quit smoking? If so, why would anti-tobacco activists oppose e-cigarettes? Get the truth about e-cigarettes in this short video.

     

    Imagine if there were an alternative to smoking cigarettes.

    Imagine this alternative could help millions of people quit smoking and came with only a fraction of the harmful chemicals that cigarettes do.

    Well, you don’t have to imagine it. It exists.

    E-cigarettes are the most innovative and promising smoking-cessation product yet invented. So, public health officials and anti-tobacco activists are all in favor of this life-saving innovation, right?

    Actually, they’re almost all totally against it.

    Why?

    Because, incredibly, they make no substantial distinction between e-cigarettes and real cigarettes -- even though they are completely different products.

    To begin with, e-cigarettes aren’t cigarettes. They contain no tobacco. Instead, a liquid containing nicotine derived from tobacco leaves is vaporized, and users of e-cigarettes inhale that vapor. Vapor, mind-you – not smoke.

    This is significant because the real harm from tobacco comes from the combustion process, which releases hundreds of toxic compounds known as tar. Since e-cigarettes have no tobacco and no combustion, they release no tar. This makes them, according to Britain’s Department of Health, at least 95% less harmful than tobacco cigarettes.

    E-cigarettes do contain nicotine, an addictive drug. However, there is little evidence that nicotine alone is bad for you, making it similar to, say, caffeine--a drug used every day by millions of people.

    Brad Rodu, an oral cancer specialist at the University of Louisville, put it this way: “I love coffee, and I’m sure I could get caffeine if I smoked my coffee beans…but I would be paying a much different price in overall health [if I did].”

    In other words, when it comes to addictive substances like caffeine or nicotine, it isn’t the addictive substance that’s harmful; it’s how it’s delivered. As South African psychiatrist Mike Russell said about cigarettes: “[People] smoke for [the] nicotine, but they die from the tar.”

    And again, there’s no tar in e-cigarettes.

    Does this all mean e-cigarettes are completely safe? Of course not. Nothing is completely safe. E-cigarettes are a relatively new innovation so more research is needed, especially on long-term effects. There’s also a place for sensible regulation to ensure consumer safety.

    But unlike normal everyday products, any potential risk posed by e-cigarettes is far outweighed by a real – not potential – good: saving lives by providing the nicotine that smokers enjoy without delivering the deadly toxins that can kill them.

    Many former smokers have successfully used e-cigarettes to help them kick their nicotine addiction altogether. A recent study in an Oxford Journal peer-reviewed publication, Nicotine and Tobacco Research, said that e-cigarettes could reduce smoking-related deaths by 21 percent. That’s thousands of lives every year.

    John Britton, an epidemiologist and director of the University of Nottingham’s Center for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies, is even more optimistic:

    “[E-cigarettes are] the first genuinely new way of helping people stop smoking that has come along in decades…[They] have the potential to help half or more of all smokers get off cigarettes.”

    So, again, you’d think public health officials and anti-tobacco groups would be doing everything they could to encourage smokers to switch to e-cigarettes.

    Instead, they push for laws and rules that equate the two products: cigarettes are bad, so e-cigarettes must also be bad. As of August 2016, the US Food and Drug Administration has ruled that all e-cigarettes must go through a long and expensive application process. This process could end up costing as much as $1 million per new product.

    While some of the biggest manufacturers will be able to shoulder the costs and navigate the regulatory mess, most small e-cigarette companies will be forced out of business. With less competition, e-cigarettes will become more expensive, and many people will go right back to smoking.

    E-cigarette prohibitionists may think they’re using a “better-safe-than-sorry” approach to save consumers from some yet-to-be-discovered danger, but they’re not.

    They’re actually endangering millions of smokers who would make the switch if the e-cigarette market were allowed to flourish.

    As Joe Nocera, a New York Times columnist, wrote:

    “Equating smoking cigarettes with inhaling e-cigarettes...is a huge disservice to public health. On the scale of potential harms, e-cigarettes aren’t even in the same ballpark as combustible cigarettes. They have the potential to save millions of lives.”

    The government needs to develop a new paradigm for dealing with e-cigarettes - one that ensures basic standards but recognizes their relative safety and immense benefit to public health.

    If they don’t, more people will die.

    Imagine that.
