    Great find Zain.

    I reckon 'The American Council on Science and Health' should be disbanded immediately for talking common sense in a public arena.

    But seriously, the ACSH should be applauded for making an effort too change the tunnel-visioned FDA's stance on e-cigs.

    The ACSH hit upon many salient points that the FDA will find hard to repudiate.

    I just hope someone in authority is listening.

    Cool.

    However I'm afraid the cynic in me can't help but raise his ugly head.

    The FDA seems to generally set the tone for what will, and what won't, be "approved". And the FDA seems to be guilty of really bad science, corruption, rampant bureaucracy and biased procedures. I have no doubt that the same applies to the TGA.

    I tend to feel that the only way to overcome this bullshit is to get people aware at the grass roots level. Remember that scientists, doctors, and tobacco users are all in there in the grass roots classification. If awareness and interest grows in that level we might hopefully see some significant studies get started.

    What the FDA and the TGA need to realise is that they cannot win this fight. Once the studies start to report, letters like these won't be so nebulous ... they will contain references to study after study after study and they won't be asking ... they will be demanding. I honestly think that this is too widespread for Big Tobacco and Big Pharma to kill.

    At least I hope so.
