Stanton Glantz: Then And Now | An In-Depth Look - Christopher Snowdon

Stanton Glantz: Then And Now | An In-Depth Look - Christopher Snowdon | Vaping vs. Smoking | Scoop.it
How Stanton Glantz went from a defender of epidemiological standards to an assailant.

 

Stanton Glantz is arguably the most influential anti-smoking activist of the last thirty years. To his friends, he is a pioneering hero; to his enemies, a dangerous crank.

 

Whether under the guise of activist or researcher, Glantz has been involved in most of the major developments in the tobacco control enterprise since 1975. He was the main proponent of 'denormalisation' in the 1970s - long before the approach even had a name. In the 1980s, he founded American for Nonsmokers Right and led the fight for the first smoking bans in his home town of San Francisco.

 

In the 1990s, he was the source for the claim that 50,000 Americans died every year as a result of secondhand smoke (a figure that was not accepted by the EPA). He was instrumental in bringing secret tobacco industry documents before the public and has written prolifically about almost every aspect of Tobacco Control.

Saskatoon Store Sees E-Cig Sales Spike | Canadians Got Vape!

Saskatoon Store Sees E-Cig Sales Spike | Canadians Got Vape! | Vaping vs. Smoking | Scoop.it

The owner of Saskatoon's only liquid and electronic cigarette store is blown away by how popular his products are.

Vapor Jedi began as a small online store in Mitch Tarala’s basement last February. The business has expanded twice since then. 

As Tarala sits in his new office on Circle Drive, customers stream through the front doors of the store. A menu displays over 100 flavours, from apple pie to root beer. The wall full of containers resembles a candy store. 

Tarala could never have imagined how popular his products would become after starting the company to supply himself and a few friends who had made the switch from tobacco.

“Within about a month I was already needing to hire staff and everything. Just lineups down the stairs and waiting 20 minutes just to talk to me,” Tarala said.

American Lung Association Eagerly Assumes Role of Chief Liar for ACS's Smokeout!

American Lung Association Eagerly Assumes Role of Chief Liar for ACS's Smokeout! | Vaping vs. Smoking | Scoop.it

The American Lung Association (ALA) may soon surpass the American Cancer Society (ACS) as the most dishonest anti-public-health charity in the country.  It would be one thing if their position were, “smokeless tobacco poses absolutely no threat to the lungs (and decades of research show that it poses very little other risk also), while e-cigarettes might affect the lungs and have greater unknowns, and therefore we recommend that those seeking a low-risk substitute for smoking stick to smokeless tobacco.”

At war we have two sides

TRUTH = E Cigarettes are a safe alternative to smoking
LIARS = Not enough is known about the safety of e-cigarettes

 

Battle lines are drawn and the negotiations are at a standstill, yet initiatives and  legislative bills are being disgarded, in thanks to the active members of CASAA and other THR advocates, we are engaged in a battle where the TRUTH will out!  Eventually!

When you are suffering from the effects of deadly SMOKING and see someone vaping you may have an opportunity to inquire as to whether or not they work? Where to buy it and try it? This purely a money battle between Free Enterprise and Huge Corporations! "That's All Folks!"
PositiveEnerG's comment, August 23, 2013 10:45 AM
I couldn't agree more, Lisa. For years, many have lamented the fact that Hollywood and culture glamorized or normalized smoking behavior. If they want to combat that, they should be allowing peole to normalize the best alternative to smoking. People constantly come up to me and ask about my e-cig, what it is, how it works, how much it costs, how it's worked for me. If you want to stop that, you are encouraging more smoking. It's that simple.
Lisa Belle's comment, August 23, 2013 11:10 AM
Now let's imagine a battlefield with Truth on one side a Lies on the other. It's not hopeless and the casualties are mounting. It's defensive strike, we need a powerful offensive one and the only hope is the United States Supreme Court that's pretty scary (...?...) In history, good people and truth has been squelched, tortured, buried and concealed. The newest threat of the FDA banning internet sales is foremost the most offensive strike the LIARS have in their arsenal.

Lisa Belle's insight:

It is irresponsible and reprehensible to deride and punish smokers with taxation. Years of false accusations of diseases in non-smoking others (never scientifically proven), to ostracize from public and social settings, to force American Citizens to stand unprotected from inclement weather, to demonize and criminalize and then to hound Ex-smokers who vape instead of smoke, and those that are using Electronic Cigarettes to stop some of their smoking which usually leads to complete quitting, as well because fruit and candy flavors taste so much better than burning sot. It is a crime against humanity to discourage smokers from a 95% less harmful alternative, now marketed and designed by an ADULT SCIENTIST for adults. It is disturbingly corrupt to be using healthy youths as the excuse to destroy the remainder of the adult smoker's lives that actually have real health needs to reduce their smoking. Wrongly by opinion over science, Kasich is making this viable and proven very effective alternative E-Cigarettes prohibitively expensive, prohibitedly propagandized as falsely dangerous, while encouraging the continued sales and use by youths and adults of burning combustible smoking tobacco and all the expenses, of the jobs created by small Electronic Shops (these businesses NOT BIG TOBACCO (#notblowingsmoke)(#vapingsavedmylife), the lives and misery that smokers endure, who deserve their freedom to be able to afford to choose.

Extensive Coordinated Article In New York Times Raises Alarms Over Nicotine Poisoning

Extensive Coordinated Article In New York Times Raises Alarms Over Nicotine Poisoning | Vaping vs. Smoking | Scoop.it

It’s been going on for a little more than a year now.  Once electronic cigarette liquid became a much more common thing, poison centers started reporting an increase in nicotine poisonings across the nation.  From 2011 to 2013, some are reporting increases in nicotine poisonings by as much as 300 to 500%.  Approximately half of these poisonings tend to occur in children.

 

A sizable article in the New York Times highlights issues with the industry, referring to bottled nicotine as a powerful stimulant hitting markets nationwide.  They go on to raise alarms about the powerful neurotoxins which can cause vomiting, seizures, and death.
