    I won't bother to link it as I'm on an iPad and it's darn near impossible for my old brain to figure that process out. But it's titled "What do e-cigarettes do to your lungs?" For the life of me I can't get how this quack is able to keep spreading his fallacies. There are a couple quotes from Haijek sp?.. But they seem to be spun negatively as well.

    And of course there's no way to comment on that article. Glantz is a walking, talking conflict of interest. He's made his career in Tobacco Control.

    Perhaps that's how he pulls it off? Only does interviews if he can be certain there will be no rebuttal?

    They actually did a "study" and came to the conclusion that they were losing the social media war because they couldn't control the dialogue, so yeah, don't expect him to engage in an open discussion online.

    Is Slantz still around?

    I thought that since his work had been Discredited so many times, that all of his Funder's pulled up stakes moved on.

    That, I he had become an Embarrassment to his Employer.

    He's uniquely qualified for his position, he has no real skills so he can dedicate his time to pseudo science, and when faced with something he can't rebut, he comes up with phrases like "scratched their heads and their butts and came up with a number."

    Fun fact:

    If you rearrange the letters in Stanton Glantz name you get "Knucklehead"

    Doing what Slantz did works.

    But it Only works for a Limited amount of Time. Because even Susceptible people catch on Sooner or Later.

    And for Slantz's employer(s), he starts to become a Liability. Because when his Credibility goes to Zero, his Name on a Study or his Quotes in the Media cause more Harm than Good for the Dis-Information his side is trying to Sell.

    I think it speaks volumes of them that they can only have a chance of winning when they control the dialogue. Obviously they dread free and open debate.

    Could someone please be generous enough to edit the title here? Pseudo Doctor attempts another hit at e-cigarettes.
    cmon peeps...Glantz is so unworthy of grabbing our ECF noobs attention. I'd rather send them off to read the posthumous
    podiatry files of Dr Roger Lier looking into alien implants.;)

    I think that Glantz time is limited... Or I hope so. He is a fraud.

    He is like the boy who cried "Wolf!" - if he ever does manage to find a legitimate problem, none of us will believe him.
