My flyer to change the world of pv's
Ok so I've been making a flyer for a while so i can post it up on walls signs colleges, bussiness, bars, everywhere and anywhere.
There mostly just copy and paste from the 2 most recent blogs to come out from the good doctors. So if anyone is a english teacher or what not someone one go thru and make sure it's understandable and get's the point across. If anyone has any idea to add or take off Please let me know my goal is to keep it 1 page in microsoft word. No one wants to stand looking at a wall for more then 5 mins at most. Below is my flyer let me know what you think please.
"Prominent Public Health Physicians and Tobacco Researchers Expose Double Standard in the FDA’s Recent Study of Electronic Cigarettes and Challenge the FDA’s Alarmist Attitude Toward the Devices. The FDA recently went public with misleading information about the safety of electronic cigarettes and the marketing of the devices, not only using its clout but recruiting other prominent organizations to demonize a product that has great public health benefit potential.
A group of prominent doctors and tobacco researchers, including Dr. Michael Siegel at the Boston University School of Public Health, Dr. Joel Nitzkin of the AAPHP Tobacco Control Task Force, and Dr. Brad Rodu, Endowed Chair, Tobacco Harm Reduction Research University of Louisville, challenge the FDA to provide the full quantitative data of the study upon which the FDA has based its warning against electronic cigarettes. They are concerned that the FDA’s disingenuous targeting of electronic cigarettes through a biased presentation of the scientific data has had significant negative impact upon the public perception of electronic cigarettes, when the best available evidence suggests that these have shown that the devices offer great potential to reduce serious health issues among traditional tobacco smokers.
“The FDA’s laboratory findings actually indicate that electronic cigarettes are much, much safer than conventional cigarettes,” says Dr. Michael Siegel. “The traces of carcinogens present are also present in nicotine replacement products. The FDA and the anti-smoking groups have fallen into a huge analytical trap as they have failed to ask the appropriate question. The right question is: ‘Are electronic cigarettes much safer than traditional ones?’”
Dr. Elizabeth Whelan is president of the American Council on Science and Health
Traditional cigarettes are lethal not because of the trace level presence of specific "carcinogens" and "toxins," but because by using them, smokers inhale enormous amounts of smoke -- otherwise known as "products of combustion." It is the inhaled smoke that kills in so many ways -- from cancers, cardiovascular and lung disease, and more. The e-cigarette -- a cigarette-mimicking device made up of a battery, an atomizer and a cartridge -- allows smokers to inhale, getting a dose of the nicotine they crave, and then sending steam out the other end (with little or no odor) to mimic the ritual and feel of smoking normal cigarettes
More than 1 million smokers are now using the e-cigarette -- a product that offers some, if not all, of the "social amenities" of the real thing -- holding the cigarette, taking a drag, seeing a plume of "smoke."

I applaud your efforts but this is a tad too long. Not to mention, your average Joe has no idea what the words 'quantitative' and 'disingenuous' even mean. I really don't mean to sound pessimistic, but the chances of someone reading this for 5 minutes is slim. For a flyer hanging on a bulletin board or laying on a table at a bar/restaurant, you've got 10, maybe 20 seconds of their attention. My advice would be to make a bullet point list of, say 5-7 major points and then at the bottom, list this forum address or another web resource (Dr. Siegel's site) and cut the bottom of the page so people can tear it off (like you would do if you were trying to sell a car). You've got a great idea though.
I like that bottom of the page idea. and yea way to long way to complex i guess i'll start working on it again. any other suggestions from anyone esle?
I agree that it is too long but I applaud your efforts. I think its great that you're doing this.
I would make the heading attention grabbing but bullet and print the rest in normal type. Nothing I hate worst than to read something that looks
LIKE THIS ETC HO HUM YEAH YEAH
NEXT LINE LOOKS THE SAME LA LA LA.
LOL..sorry but you get the idea.
