Guide To Reading Research Papers 101

22nd September 2016

In the vaping world we often read that research has discovered something terrible about e cigarettes. That information is usually conveyed with a dramatic headline, sometimes the information within the report has no semblance to said headline, and the headline can often be click bait. Sadly, there is a plethora of junk science out there, so how can we, as non-scientists know what is good research and should be kept, and what should be thrown in trash? This is why we feel it is of vital importance that you can start to understand the science for yourselves. Knowledge is power, and if you…

Is Big Tobacco friend or foe in this fight?

15th September 2016

Cutting through the regulatory noise... Are they fighting for Vaping, or do they want to wipe us all out? Depending upon which articles you read, you may believe it’s one or the other, but the truth is never that simple. The Tobacco Industry is deeply entrenched in our society. They make vast profits, have huge PR and legal teams, have all routes to market covered so no marketing is required, and, they know how to lobby. They are formidable players on the world stage due to this, but also because of tobacco taxes. Governments are as addicted to tobacco cigarettes as the most hardened smoker…

US Doctors Frequently Discuss Electronic Cigarettes

31st August 2016

A new paper entitled "Beliefs, practices, and self-efficacy of US physicians regarding smoking cessation and electronic cigarettes – A National survey” reveals that US Doctors are frequently discussing electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) with patients in a clinical setting. A substantial proportion of physicians also recommend e-cigs to their patients who smoke. Over 70% of the more than 560 physicians who participated in the written survey indicated that e-cigs can help patients reduce or eliminate smoking, and nearly half said that they believe e-cigs can reduce risk. Physicians are less likely to recommend e-cigs as a way to quit smoking. Approximately two-thirds of the…

What is the point of a lawsuit against the FDA?

25th August 2016

Seems a ridiculous question, but there are different types of lawsuits, criminal and civil, and if the vaping industry is successful, what exactly will a Judge do? Suing the FDA is not done through the criminal courts, (no matter what we as vapers may think and the Judge can’t throw the FDA in jail). Suing the FDA is done through the civil courts. Those doing the suing are known as the ‘plaintiffs’. They initiate the lawsuit (also known as an action) and seek a legal remedy. If the plaintiff is successful, the court will issue a judgment in favor of the plaintiff…

Does anyone in power really support vaping?

19th August 2016

Cole-Bishop, Senator Johnson and HR2058. Many of us know the names of these important vaping bills and advocates, but who else in the higher echelons of power supports vaping? Is this a personal choice by our representatives, or is it more a party ‘thing’? TW has been digging around to find out, as this is important information and knowledge in the fight to save vaping. So let’s kick off with HR2058. It is classed as cross party, as there are said to be Democrats and Republicans that support it. But did you know, (at time of writing) out of the 71 co-sponsors, 70 are…

Want to know what a PMTA really involves?

11th August 2016

Some of you will have read articles that state that just one Pre Market Tobacco Application (PMTA) will cost anywhere between $300,000 to $1million dollars and take roughly 1700 man hours. But how many of you have an idea of what the FDA want in order to simply look at a product for a PMTA, never mind approve it?
