Anti-Science War on Vaping
Here are the facts. Millions of Americans are dying from cigarette smoking because quitting tobacco is extraordinarily difficult. Research, published last year in the New England Journal of Medicine, offers powerful evidence that vaping can help smokers quit cigarettes. Anti-smoking activists and government regulators promoting vaping bans and, in Senator Schumer’s words, fighting a ‘war on vaping’ are not advancing science or good public-health policy. On the contrary, these advocates and politicians are fighting technologies and products that could save millions of American lives.
Let’s stop the war on vaping; let’s take the politics out of health.
