    Those pesky "scientists" and "researchers"

    Im not feeling the angst and outrage that the unnamed author of that opinion piece is. All that hyperbole over a press release!
    The head researcher isnt a newb.
    Think I will wait for the final research papers to be released.

    The problem ofc is that public opinion is largely shaped by headlines and paid promotion.

    You can do more with a well-written press release than a full study.

    Don't get me wrong, there are still really misleading studies on vaping being done, but it may well be likely that the actually study and its flaws get roundly ignored.

    So I think its okay to be outraged about a press release, as a press release is basically also a "release the jackals, I mean journalists" is what it also IS. It is a summoning of the press to report on something topical of the day while doing very little if any work.

    I wouldn't underestimate the power of the press release, also (IMHO) quite often a form of "performance art," as well.

    I already have a draft blog post addressing the claims made both by this silly study and the ridiculously bad "heart attack study" by Stanton "The ANTZ" Glantz. Hopefully out by Monday, once the CASAA science expert looks it over!
