    The British Medical Association and its attacks on e-cigarettes

    Clive Bates gets stuck into the BMA ...........

    The British Medical Association has written to a number of football clubs urging them to end sponsorship deals with e-cigarette companies and to ban the use of e-cigarettes at their football grounds. I think the lines taken by the BMA are scientifically illiterate and likely to cause harm by making it harder for people to quit smoking by switching to vaping. They stress minute obscure risks and ignore huge potential benefits and argue with an authority not backed by the quality of their science. So here is an anonymised example of the letters they have been sending, along with how I would reply if I was an organisation on the receiving end of this.

    I hope the football clubs send it to them.

    BMA is tactic #3 by Big Pharma

    Facts about Global Warming and the Fossil Fuel Industry

    1. Use "experts" to spread false information (Ch4pman, Glantz, McKee, Abrams)
    2. Use front groups to launder information (e.g SmokefreeKids etc etc)
    3. Create an echo chamber (BMJ)
    4. Manufacture uncertainty where there is none ("not sure is 'less toxic' than tobacco smoke")

    Old Dog, bringing this type of information forward is fantastic, a thousand likes for what you are doing!

    What a great response by Clive Bates to the BMA letter, dispelling the myths put forward by the supposed defenders of public health.

    They are a bunch of wankers, and will be exposed as BigPharma shills.

    Can't they see what we can see? ..... do they have no integrity as medical professionals ?

    Nothing's changed since this ignorant effort ..........
