Least we forget about Gummy bear vitamins and all of the overdoses those have caused?

    Why Is The FDA Shielding Smokers From The Good News About E-Cigarettes?


    By Gilbert Ross, M.D.

    Any clear-thinking health professional would agree that cigarette smoking is without question the most devastating and preventable public health risk that we need to address in this country.

    Unfortunately this doesn't work well, as the two things may look similar but are functionally very different. One is a paper tube where the smoke from burning chopped-up vegetable matter is inhaled; the other is a steel ...
