Improved lung function, lower infection rates with vaping products.

The choice for smokers is becoming clearer for vaping products. Again. Within a week, two MORE studies have emerged. One shows improved lung function, the other – lower infection rates among users. While claiming they want harm reduction, organizations and government officials will ignore not be able to find these studies.

The Roswell Park Cancer Institute study was done in 2011 (?) and showed

“For 12 of 17 measured biomarkers, they found significant declines in exposure to toxicants when participants changed from tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes. The decline in toxicant levels was similar to the decline seen among tobacco users who quit smoking.”


The other study, found on PubMed (included R. Polosa) stated

“High prevalence of cough/phlegm (43.1%) and shortness of breath (34.8%) was reported at baseline with substantial reduction in their frequency at subsequent follow-up visits. These symptoms virtually disappeared very quickly in both quitters and reducers.

Smokers invited to switch to electronic cigarettes who completely abstained from smoking showed steady progressive improvements in their FEF25-75% Normalization of peripheral airways function was associated with improvement in respiratory symptoms, adding to the notion that abstaining from smoking can reverse tobacco harm in the lung.”


declined

How much longer will the FDA, American Heart, Cancer and Lung Associations and more hold out on lie and withhold this evidence when their “goal” is to reduce smoking?

How will these entities be held accountable?

How many more people will listen to their opinions and accept them as true?

How many will survive long enough to know the truth?

Rhetorical, I know.


This is from Jennifer Berger Coleman, who posed her results of her lung function tests in a Facebook group a week or so ago, and gave me permission to share. (Thank you, Jennifer!) She is also advocating her ass off with letters and talking with co-workers and more.

My favorite kind of anecdote. 🙂

Don’t take MY word for better lung function –

Meanwhile the United States Food & Drug Administration is imposing the deeming rules that began August 8th, 2016 and is already being challenged in court.

PLEASE know our enemies here.

PLEASE spread the word about A Billion Lives.


Could someone put a unicorn and some glitter on at least one of these studies and mimeograph them? I’d like Simon Chapman (quit or die) or Stanley Glantz (use approved products) to see the “symptoms virtually disappeared very quickly in both quitters and reducers” just to piss them off.

Paul has a great piece on Unicorns…


More to come!

Keep ON #Vaping On.
