    HuffPo joins the ranks of the ignorant (if it wasn't there already)

    Huffington Post's article "12 Things The Tobacco Industry Doesn't Want You To Know" starts out okay, but then gets onto the topic of ecigs - it's all negative and fear mongering:

    12 Things The Tobacco Industry Doesn't Want You To Know

    .. however, it looks like the article has attracted a lot of attention and debate -1,097 comments so far and it's been up for less than a day.

    I see one comment about vapes being the gateway FROM smoking, not the oft-pushed notion of them being gateways TO. Good one.
    Wasn't going to go through 23 pages, though.

    Guilt by association.

    In my opinion, its just another example of their desperate attempts to keep people from saving their own lives.

    they've got it all wrong. the tobacco industry does want people to "know" all this negative crap about vaping, cos it'll keep them smoking and the profits will keep rolling in.

    Such a shame when articles that start out so promisingly turn out to have a bunch of BS tacked on to the end.
