E-Cigarette Opponents Still Making Up False "Facts" to Demonize Vaping

Were well into 2018 and there is now substantial research on the health effects of vaping as well as a decade of experience with large numbers of vapers, yet e-cigarette opponents are still making up false claims to buttress their demonization of vaping.In an article by Jia Tolentino published yesterday in the New Yorker, a Harvard professor was quoted as claiming that: vaping can cause something called bronchiolitis obliterans, or popcorn lung.He also stated that Juul is a massive public-health...


NIH Director Grilled at Appropriations Hearing About NIAAA Collusion with Alcohol Industry

At the House Appropriations Committee hearing on the NIH Budget, NIH director Dr. Francis Collins was grilled about the collusion between the NIAAA and the alcohol industry in planning a clinical trial to study the health benefits of alcohol use.

Congressional Investigation Needed into Scientific and Ethical Corruption at NIAAA

I used to think of the National Institutes of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) as a highly-reputed, objective, science-based agency whose primary goal was to reduce alcohol consumption to improve the public’s health. The scientific integrity of the NIAAA is critical, as it describes itself as “the largest funder of alcohol research in the world.” The agency is funded by taxpayers to the tune of $480 million a year. But then one day, all of that changed. On January 16, 2015, I was called int...
