E-Cig alarmists are ignoring how helpful the devices are to quit smoking
E-cig alarmists and anti-vaping advocates are continually spouting misinformation and scaremongering headlines and ignoring the smoking cessation properties of e-cigarettes.
Health officials in Tennessee echoed the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Monday, warning that electronic cigarettes are dangerous, ignoring evidence showing they help smokers quit.
“There’s a national drumbeat against electronic cigarettes, and the CDC is the leading champion for this demonization of a useful product,” Dr. Edward Anselm, senior fellow at the R Street Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “There are many challenges associated with the CDC’s war on e-cigarettes, and I don’t think it’s wrong to talk about a war on e-cigarettes.”
