    FDA/NIH funded junk study published/hyped by JAMA falsely insinuates e-cigs are gateways to cigarettes and OTP to confuse, scare and lobby for FDA’s proposal to ban >99.9% of nicotine vapor products on the market.
    JAMA Network | JAMA | Association of Electronic Cigarette Use With Initiation of Combustible Tobacco Product Smoking in Early Adolescence

    Note that study was coauthored by conflicted former TPSAC Chair Jonathan Samet, purported to study potential gateway effects of e-cigs, but only ask irrelevant questions about “ever use” of e-cigs and “past six month” smoking, then improperly excluded all smokers from the data analysis, and then failed to acknowledge any of overwhelming evidence disproving authors’ assertions.

    JAMA invites Adam Leventhal (one of the FDA/NIH funded authors) to further hype terribly designed and irreconcilably biased study that deceitfully insinuated e-cigs are gateways to cigarettes (which the study never found, nor was designed to study).

    Although some of this crap from JAMA, news stories and excellent commentaries (exposing the study's many flaws, and refuting its fear mongering insinuations) appear on other ECF threads, I'm creating this thread to organize all the documents, expose that this FDA/NIH junk study was intended to lobby for FDA's proposed e-cig ban (not to study potential gateway effects of e-cig), and to make it easier for future searches on ECF.

    Can an admin please delete my duplicate thread postings of this same thread.
    The first five times I tried to create the thread, nothing happened (or so I thought), so I tried again and again until I was notified that the thread had been posted.
    I don't know how to delete a thread.

    Seems to me that they found that kids who smoke are more likely to try vaping than kids
    who don't smoke.
