    Doctor posing as health expert exposed as Pharma shill

    Sky News viewers were hoodwinked into thinking that they were watching the views and opinions of a medical expert acting in her capacity as an impartial Doctor explaining concerns about electronic cigarettes - when, in fact, they were watching a Pfizer spokesperson attack a competitor product.

    You see, Dr Sarah Jarvis, Pfizer spokesperson, now dubbed 'The Sky News E-cig Liar', came on to the screen to declare that :

    1 - There are huge variations in the level of nicotine in e-cigs
    2 - They contain antifreeze and 'cancer causing chemicals'

    You see, Sky News didn't actually mention that Dr Sarah Jarvis is sponsored by Pfizer, a pharmaceutical company that produces Champix and other drugs like Nicotine Replacement Therapy
    - a company that is in direct competition with electronic cigarettes.

    Disgusting behaviour from Pfizer. Clearly getting more desperate as their NRT sales decline and PV sales increase. I hope someone sends SDky News a rebuttal on that report and points out what they have been a party to.


    2nd attempt ... Never give up, giving up. OMG I am going to be rich soon, look how much I have saved!

    grrrr! pineapple that. no wonder there's reports that the increase in sales of ecigs has stalled. with garbage like that out there, people would just be too scared to try them. she makes it sound as if vaping is as bad as, if not worse than, smoking. saying they contain "EVERYTHING from cancer causing chemicals to antifreeze" infers that there's a whole gamut of terrible ingredients that are going to kill you dead after a puff or 2. lord knows how any of us have survived this far(!)

    Strangely I dont blame Pfizer as much as the GP - we know BPs agenda, and Sky News for that matter too, but we might reasonably expect that someone with the title of MD can be relied upon to behave better than some low rent shill.

    I would like to think this clown will be struck off the register and ran out of town by the MDs wearing the White Hats - but Im not holding my breath...

    Saying they contain "EVERYTHING from cancer causing chemicals to antifreeze", isn't entirely untrue.
    PG is used as antifreeze but that doesn't mean it is bad.
    Cancer causing chemicals, possibly, depending on the juice being used but traditional NRT has these same chemicals, just in higher amounts.

    to be honest, i dont think any more of these lies would affect the vaping community. The current vapers already know the benefits of vaping and that all negatives are lies, and new vapers or going-to-be vapers probably dont even care knowing that vaping is definitely still safer then smoking. So, we can say, to hell with all the lies!!

    I love how the ANTZ feel good about themselves for pushing the sales to minors ban. It's one of the most pathetic displays of self gratitude because they dont even push for it for the protection of children. They do it because they think a ban on sales to minors will piss the e-cig industry off by affecting their profits.

    Sales figures to minors is not even something e-cig companies bother with. I'm sure most e-cig company CEOs don't even click on news articles titles "e-cigs to be banned to minors". Its of no concern.

    not me saying it. it's what the "health expert" said in the sound bite.

    First, 'do no harm' much?
    Struck off or censured at least.
