FDA faces important decisions on regulation of e-cigarettes

E-cig sellers jockey for market position before FDA issues regulations

More research on e-cigarette vapor including its second-hand effects is required to definitively determine exactly how dangerous it is. The authors proposed several questions around which to base future research: Do low levels of contaminants in e-cigarette vapor pose a health risk? What are the thresholds for toxicity of contaminants in vapor? What should be the basis for product standards for e-cigarettes? Could the risks be ameliorated by changes in engineering?

That “would most likely turn smokers off of the product” because they would be left with “an essentially flavorless” vapor that would make traditional cigarettes appear preferable in comparison, he said. He argues that banning flavors in or setting maximums on nicotine content in e-cigs would make kicking the tobacco habit even harder for traditional smokers. But a perhaps bigger concern for Steingraber and other executives at e-cig makers is a potential ban on Internet sales.

Citing danger, PMA urges e-cigarettes ban

Straight out of Fracking 101, Parker, who does donate heavily to cancer-fighting causes, claimed to the Wall Street Journal, Theres a huge opportunity to transition the entire world away from dangerous, carcinogenic, combusting cigarettes. But the marketing is hardly altruistic, from cartoons where the smoker gets the buxom gal, to ads where e-cigarette smokers puff away to rock music, to the flavoring of many of the e-cigarettes. The FDA has banned fruit flavors from tobacco cigarettes that attracted underage smokers, but the e-cigarette world is full of flavors such as Chocolate Thunder, Peach Schnapps, Cherry Crush, and Tahitian Punch. One company markets Butter Rum and Cinnamon Apple Crumble flavorings by saying, respectively, Go back to childhood, and, Remember moms homemade apple pie? Can these sweet-tooth evocations really be for middle-age smokers who want to quit? In the world of fossil energy, we have decided to frack now, and ask questions later. In the world of smoking, e-cigarette makers are flooding the market before any questions can be asked. They want us to believe that since nothing is as bad as real cigarettes, e-cigarettes are inherently good.

EU vote on electronic cigarettes ‘makes no sense’

E-cigarette maker targets Colorado

Users of e-cigarettes (known as vapers) have protested, arguing that through e-cigarettes they were able to kick the tobacco habit. By Martin Banks in Brussels 4:18PM BST 14 Jul 2013 The vote was intended to make tobacco smoking less attractive to young people through mandatory warnings, minimum pack sizes, and rules on flavourings. However, the revision of the EU ‘Tobacco Products Directive’ would classify most e-cigarettes as a medicinal product, despite the fact that in the UK alone 25 percent of all attempts to kick the habit are made using e-cigarettes, making them the most popular aid. The European Commission had proposed that e-cigarettes containing 4 milligrammes or more of nicotine must be classed as medicinal products but an EU parliamentary committee went further, voting to classify all e-cigarettes as pharmaceuticals, regardless of the nicotine content. Users of e-cigarettes (known as vapers) have protested, arguing that through e-cigarettes they were able to kick the tobacco habit.

If policy makers are unwilling to ban tobacco cigarettes then they have a moral obligation to ensure that any regulatory regime they introduce to regulate e-cigarettes, a recognised safer alternative to tobacco cigarettes, continues to allow them to be sold freely and in a way that is attractive to existing tobacco cigarette smokers. Today MEPs shirked their moral responsibility. Those MEPs that have failed their constituents by supporting fallaciously misrepresented facts, knowingly purveyed to drive through this obvious ends driven regulation, must now take full accountability for their actions. The question must be asked: Why do policy makers want to intervene to prevent or obstruct a smoker having access to products that could potentially save his or her life?

On Twitter, dubious health claims from e-cigarette bots

Paul Smalera

However, while final FDA rules on e-cigarette regulation are awaited, there is one bright line the makers of e-cigarettes are not supposed to cross. Manufacturers can, according to the study, make unrestricted advertising appeals, provided they do not market their products as smoking cessation devices. In an analysis of over 73,000 tweets from a two-month period in 2012, the authors concluded that nearly 11 percent of commercial tweets touted cessation as one of the benefits of e-cigarettes, with a potential reach of 7.4 million Twitter users. These tweets werent part of Twitters advertising program, but they werent organic either. The authors concluded that the Twitter accounts were commercial in nature; that is, they touted websites and resellers of e-cigarette products, along with the cessation claims that e-cigarette sellers are supposed to be barred from making.
