Electronic cigarettes – what is science saying as of today?

Skeptical Raptor

Over the past few years, electronic cigarettes (often called a personal vaporizer, e-cigarette, or many other trendy descriptions–I’ll abbreviate them as EC, just to save space) have become a popular alternative to tobacco cigarettes.

The war on e-cigs is now national

New York Post, Betsy McCaughey

Hypocrisy has reached new heights, even by Washington’s standards. The same left-wing senators who support needle-exchange and methadone programs to reduce harm to drug addicts and demand condoms for high-schoolers are waging war against the most effective harm reducer of all — e-cigarettes.

ASH data considered as indication of TPD’s negative effect

Vaping Post, Diane Caruana

The Contentious Politics of Disruptive Innovation: Vaping and Fracking in the European Union

AcademiaEDU.com, Jacob Adam Hasselbalch

A dissertation – by Jacob Adam Hasselbalch

This thesis investigates what it means to view disruptive innovation as a political problem. I take my point of departure in the tendency for controversial disruptions in heavily regulated sectors, such as electronic cigarettes or hydraulic fracturing, to open regulatory spaces by challenging established expectations about how they ought to be governed.

Moral Panic in the Time of Smokeless Tobacco

via Christopher Snowdon

The similarities between today’s e-cigarette panic and the snus panic of the 1980s are uncanny. So uncanny that you might think that ‘public health’ people would have learned a lesson. To be fair, some have – including ASH to an extent – but if you look at the World Health Organisation, the FDA, The Lancet et al, you can hear exactly the same bogus arguments and hysterical rhetoric that were voiced in the 1980s.
