October 15, 2014

In what may be described as either clarification or justification, Dr. Siegel has a new post dealing with his original scientfic study which he cancelled.

Dr. Siegel’s Vaping Scientific Study Is Cancelled

October 2, 2014

For me, this news was extremely disappointing and very sad. Although I stand by my previous statements/article directed at CASAA, I will continue to present this organization to my readers as one of several options to engage in activism to insure the survival of vaping.

Dr. Siegel is a renowned and long time friend of the Vaping Community. For years he has fought ANTZ at considerable peril to his own ability to earn a living and raise funds.

Looking back at the FDA: A 2009 Crusade to eliminate Vaping

Understanding the FDA in 2014 and defining our current expectations with respect to Vaping regulations is enhanced by a detailed examination of their actions in 2009. The following July 22, 2009 FDA press release forms the basis of our analysis… Read More »

Outstanding Comment For FDA Vaping Regulations

September 9, 2014

I forgot about the initial attempt by the FDA to regulate Vaping in 2009. This was their first failed effort to obliterate Vaping from the planet. Full of lies, half truths, hidden agendas, and other disgusting behavior. They created confusion in the marketplace, delayed the adoption of Vaping by many smokers, and even today the uninformed still quote from… Read More »
