📆 May 25: E-cigarettes, flavors and harm reduction: finding common ground https://bit.ly/3ok3vC1 @gbentley1 @ReasonFdn, our @BeforeChelsea and Mazen Saleh
A new analysis published in @NTR_Journal of youth vaping data in the USA concludes thusly:
"Vaping is largely concentrated among non-smoking youth who would likely have smoked prior to the introduction of e-cigarettes."
It's time to stop the lies.
If anyone tells you there's not enough evidence that nicotine vapes ("e-cigarettes") are safer than traditional cigarettes, show them this. 10,000 studies. 15 years of safe use. Millions fewer smokers... And I think I see a growing consensus among experts.
Excellent video here from the French Institute of Cancer! They recommend #vaping as an option that helps smokers quit, other health institutes, take note!
In this SPOTLIGHT, @Biebert wanted to hear from those affected by the deadly moral panic in Canada that sparked his recent film project, @KnowNicotine.
New data suggests vaping by youth continued to fall during the pandemic.
“That is a positive thing,” said AVA President @GregTHR. “This technology is intended for adult smokers looking to get away from combustible cigarettes.”
“EVALI was clearly associated with a drastic reduction in e-cigarette sales,” @mbsiegel told @Alex_Norcia. "But what was even more troubling was that the EVALI scare was also associated with an immediate increase in cigarette consumption."
Our paper published today in the Harm Reduction Journal provides evidence that the false statements made during the EVALI scare may have caused harm by increasing cigarette consumption. Congrats to first author and UROP superstar @AmandaKatchmar! https://harmreductionjournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12954-021-00498-0
Great advocacy work by @OhioVaping!
Good day at the Senate Health Committee for @OhioVaping today. We also got to talk to Senators Brenner and Romanchuk and Representative Cross.

Five years ago today, AVA's @GregTHR appeared on CNN to explain the perils of the FDA's proposed deeming regulation.
Through five years of delays, ban attempts, court cases, minor reforms, and everything in between, AVA has remained in the fight. Thank you for all your support!
