Our report on the global nicotine ecosystem is out!
Vaporizers are the fastest growing product category, but "...conventional cigarettes remain the dominant nicotine-delivery vehicle worldwide, with important exceptions such as India, Sweden, and Norway."
The Global Nicotine Ecosystem (by retail value):
Still 95.8% combustible tobacco! China dominates.
Vaping systems = 1.5%, though fastest growing.
NRTs = 0.3%

Registration now open for the leading global conference on safer #nicotine products, the 6th @GFNicotine Global Forum on Nicotine 2019: 13-15 June 2019
See you there!

I can't wait... 🙄

ICYM this by @whycherrywhy, read it. The research effort required was modest, but only Jim -- none of the MSM transcriptionists -- did it. He points out how the latest FDA anti-vape grandstanding is actively promoting the worst products. (Intentionally?)
Retired UK senior citizen switched to vaping after >45yrs smoking.
Blood pressure is now normal, night coughing = zero.
