U.S. National Institutes of Health summarizes a new study with another positive finding for vaping and quiting smoking.
"Smokers who don’t plan to quit should be considered when evaluating the risks and benefits of e-cigarettes."

Ahem, Mitch Zeller @FDATobacco @US_FDA, the letter you got from Mr. Bloomberg’s paid agents is filled with errors and ridiculous omissions. We fixed it for you:
Critics say there is a youth vaping "epidemic." The data suggests otherwise. Meanwhile, there is push to limit access to safer e-cigarette nicotine products for millions of adults.
CEI's @michelleminton explains why health policy on e-cigarettes must work for youth AND adults.
AVA's @GregTHR “pointed to data showing that youth vaping has been declining and blasted anti-tobacco groups who ‘continue to push for a new drug war by amping up the moral panic around safer nicotine products.’”
Today's must read from @MarcGunther covers the campaign by researchers like @mikepesko to implore @CDCDirector to take corrective action on "EVALI" misperceptions.
While adults continue to smoke, the CDC keeps deflecting.

The CDC made an error by blaming a deadly lung disease on e-cigarettes. It won't correct it | my latest for @Medium

https://filtermag.org/tobacco-harm-reduction-birds-cdc/ Would the CDC ever tweet that birdwatching can help you get your mind off heroin craving? Or that people with alcohol use disorder should take more birdwatching trips?
We appreciate Georgia State University professor Michael Pesko for his willingness to engage with the media and policymakers and educate them on the data linking vaping taxes to higher cigarette sales.
It's a shame so many don't want to listen. #HarmReduction #Vaping
@ShaylaKleinWBOY @GregTHR Hi Shayla, I'm an NIH-funded researcher and I find a lot of evidence that when you raise e-cigarette taxes, it increases smoking, including for teens. I think that's the relevant margin here. You can learn more here if interested: http://bit.ly/2XrIQzb.
"I switched back to cigarettes because I thought it would be healthier than Juuling."
The evidence for smoking making a 'comeback' is thin and not supported by 2021 sales data, but the impact of health disinformation is very real.
"You don’t have to try vapes with the idea of quitting cigarettes; it can just occur, unintended."
