    California state government used misleading reports to increase tobacco tax revenue

    NOT Blowing Smoke - Why the California Department of Public Health LIES about electronic cigarettes, e-cigarettes, vaping, and vapor products
    Derek Yach is executive director of the Vitality Institute and previously headed tobacco control at the World Health Organization (WHO).
    NO evidence of potential for exposures of e-cigarette users to contaminants that are associated with risk to health.
    Aerosols associated with electronic cigarettes indicated that there is NO evidence that vaping produces inhalable exposures to contaminants.
    Exposures of bystanders are likely to be orders of magnitude less, thus posing NO apparent concern.
    Unsupported statements are accepted as truth by policymakers and are used as the basis for stringent regulation of e-cigs in many jurisdictions. This may well end up causing more public health harm than good.

    "Smoking kills and nicotine does not."
    "I understand why anti-smoking activists so distrust vaping. I'm one of them. But the evidence is clear."
    Derek Yach

    This game changing view came after safety concerns were addressed. Two analyses reviewed toxicological, laboratory and clinical research on the potential risks and concluded that e-cigs are by far less harmful than smoking, and that ‘significant health benefits are expected in smokers who switch from tobacco to e-cigs’.

    Articles - NOT Blowing Smoke There's a lot of articles in this link, these are just the first two or three.
    First Vs. New Generation Vaping Devices : Nicotine Absorption
    According to a study led by Dr. Konstantinos E. Farsalinos, the vaping devices and liquid used in in this research delivered one-third to one-fourth the amount of nicotine after 5 minutes of use compared to tobacco cigarettes – and the new generation of devices significantly outperformed first generation ecigs. Published February 2015.

    Ecigarettes Save Lives
    Derek Yach previously headed tobacco control at the WHO. He says he understands why anti-smoking activists are so distrustful of vaping and is one of those activists. However, he also acknowledges that the evidence is clear – ecigarettes are saving lives. He states everyone involved with tobacco control needs make up for 50 years of ignoring the simple reality that smoking kills and nicotine does not. Published February 2015.
