    I think that he focuses too much on the conspiracy theory aspect of the opposition. I think allot of the anit-ecig stuff that is being put out there stems mainly from complete ignorance of the product. if the ecig lobby really wants this to change they need to publish independent studies showing the safety of e-cigarettes and the heath benefits from their use. To simply say that "big tobacco" out to get us is kind of a cop out. Do a you-tube search for the health benefits of vaping and most are low quality interviews with some unnamed doctor or thinly veiled product commercials. Lets get some credible evidence and then we can throw that in the face of whomever tries to challenge it.

I thought the juice study was a good read but anyone on the against side of the argument are going to see that the funding came from the source of the product. Any positive result will immediately be suspect even if the lab is independent. I think a credible heath organization needs to step up and do there own investigation and throw their stamp of approval on these things. It is a no brainier that anyone who knows anything about them can clearly see the benefit over an analog cigarette but until someone the public "trusts" steps up and say it they will just continue to believe that the only difference between e-cigarettes and cigarettes is the "e".

    The majority of testing is done or funded by those making a product. This is the way of the world, at least until some altruistic organization shows up with a bottomless bank account. The people/company making the product conducts/funds tests/studies and the results are submitted to the appropriate governmental agency for review.

    I can understand the "but they did/paid for the study" mentality; but only those who will profit from such efforts have any incentive to pay out the, some times, millions of dollars needed to conduct such research.

    You mean like the American Cancer Society that depends on pharmaceutical companies for much of their financial support? Not likely to happen. All the "creditible health organizations" have their own agendas that would make positive news about e-cigarettes problematic for them.
