KarinSpenser's insight:

Doubt about whether e-cigarettes are safer than cigarettes. You left an opening for doubt that e-cigarettes may not be safer than smoking: “...almost certainly… but we cannot tell for sure” were the words used. Actually we do know for sure. The reason we are sure is down to basic physics and chemistry.  The primary risk from smoking arises from combustion of organic material, which is then inhaled as smoke particulates and toxic gases into the lungs.  We know with certainty that process is completely absent from all e-cigarettes.  There is no conceivable mechanism in e-cigarettes that could create similar risks and no-one to my knowledge has proposed one.  The more realistic question is whether the reduction in risk is 99% or 99.9%.  Contrived equivocation over what is known beyond dispute is a disreputable tactic – it adds to public confusion and creates baseless concern.

Dr. David Abrams of the American Legacy Foundation confirmed that the data do not support the authors’ conclusion.  “I am quite certain that a survey would find that people who have used nicotine gum are much more likely to be smokers and to have trouble quitting, but that does not mean that gum is a gateway to smoking or makes it harder to quit,”

The UCSF press release also contains a demonstrably false leading statement: “The study of nearly 40,000 youth around the country also found that e-cigarette use among middle and high school students doubled between 2011 and 2012, from 3.1 percent to 6.5 percent.”

KarinSpenser's insight:

The FDA has thus far taken an aggressively antagonistic approach in its regulatory procedures, some of which are dictated by the 2009 enabling legislation.  For example, the legislation prohibits members of the FDA Tobacco Product Scientific Advisory Committee (TPSAC) from having any relationship with the tobacco industry in the 18 months preceding their appointment.  This is in direct contrast to all other federal advisory committees (including expert CIR panels), in which an industry conflict of interest for a qualified candidate is reportable but not prohibited.

The 2012 CIR panel also commented about PG as a food additive: “According to the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), the acceptable daily intake of PG is 25 milligrams per kilogram of body weight per day.  In Japan, the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare (MHLW) specified that according to the food sanitation law, PG has no potential to cause harm to human health.”

he European Parliament has approved the revised tobacco directive that restricts e-cigarette marketing and continues the ban on life-saving Swedish snus.  Prior to the vote the medical establishment in Europe conducted a vicious and campaign against e-cigarettes.  A particularly offensive example was provided by Dr. Vivienne Nathanson of the British Medical Association, who debated UK tobacco harm reduction protagonist Christopher Snowdon

The only positive note in this otherwise dark story is that, for the first time, Dr. Glantz’s fabrication was called out by the American Cancer Society and the American Legacy Foundation.  The ACS’s Dr. Thomas Glynn said in the New York Times, “The data in this study do not allow many of the broad conclusions that it draws.”

Academics at the University of California San Francisco have used the 2011 and 2012 National Youth Tobacco Survey to fabricate a claim that “e-cigarettes are likely to be gateway devices for nicotine addiction among youth, opening up a whole new market for tobacco.”  Lead author Lauren Dutra provided that quote to the media in a UCSF press release touting the study.  Dr. Stanton Glantz was a coauthor.  The study appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics.

KarinSpenser's insight:
The CIR was established in 1976 by an industry association with the support of the FDA and the Consumer Federation of America; it reviews and assesses the safety of ingredients used in cosmetics.  University faculty, industry representatives and the director of the Office of Cosmetics and Colors at the FDA participate in the reviews, which are conducted according to published procedures The CIR appears to be an excellent example of cooperation between federal regulators and the industry they regulate; it might serve as a template for cooperation among the FDA Center for Tobacco Products and tobacco manufacturers.
