    The FDA : sigh :

    FDA Doesn't Want Public to Think that Cigarette Smoking is More Hazardous than Vaping

    The FDA has acknowledged that it does not want the public to think that cigarette smoking is any more hazardous than using a non-tobacco e-cigarette.

    According to an FDA spokeswoman, as quoted at WebMD: "We don't want the public to perceive them (e-cigarettes) as a safer alternative to cigarettes."

    FDA tobacco chief urges more public outrage over tobacco deaths and illness.

    DeCoursey said she didn't expect there would be much legislative interest in restricting electronic cigarette sales in Kansas, but that she and other advocates would try to generate some.

    “That’s just too hot of a topic for us not to do anything,” she said. “I’m a long way from believing they (e-cigarettes) are safe — or as safe as the tobacco companies are telling us they are.”

    If you think their ideas are a little confused, this may help ................

    The FDA “is inherently biased in favor of the pharmaceutical industry. It views industry as its client, whose interests it must represent and advance. It views its primary mission as approving as many drugs as it can, regardless of whether the drugs are safe or needed.” This statement was made by FDA associate director of the Office of Drug Safety, Dr. David Graham almost two years ago.

    U.S. to spend up to $273 million on tobacco-related research.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government plans to spend as much as $273 million over the next five years on tobacco-related research in a bid to help reduce the number of deaths from smoking.

    The Food and Drug Administration and National Institutes of Health said on Thursday they have awarded an initial $53 million to 14 institutions to conduct research that could help the FDA shape tobacco product regulations.

    In 2009 the agency was given authority to regulate cigarettes, cigarette tobacco and roll-your-own tobacco, though not pipe tobacco, cigars or e-cigarettes.

    The law allows the FDA to expand its authority to all tobacco products but it must first issue new regulations. Those are in development and no date has been announced for their publication.
