Policy could cost lives

I mentioned before the .gov’s plan could kill people by banning electronic cigarettes. Now, the FDA has stopped some shipments of them at the border. Jacob Sullum notes the weak testing standards of creation science:

It seems clear that the FDA already has decided to ban e-cigarettes and is now seeking evidence to back up that decision. This approach, which replaces science and consumer protection with puritanism and bureaucratic pigheadedness, sacrifices the interests—and possibly the lives—of smokers who could dramatically reduce their disease risks by switching to e-cigarettes.

    OK, you have to understand, These people are eugenicists. They want people to die, but they want them to die constructively. When Hitler killed millions of jews and other undesirables(as they called them) they tried everything they could to make a profit. They tried to make things out their body parts, they pried the fillings out of thier teeth, they failed horribly. These are the same people, but this time they want us to die more constructively so they can profit from it. If they allow the elec. cigs, then they loose all of that tax base, and people stop dieing from cancer in which they are heavily invested(big pharma) so to allow something that makes that much sense would be non productive, and hurt thier profits as well as sllowing the death rate.

    It’s not surprising that the government that thinks it owns us doesn’t want us making decisions on our own.

    And yet the government mandates “fire safe cigarettes”, which contain ethylene vinyl acetate. I wonder what that’ll do to peoples’lungs?

    They’re all made in china. Who knows what kind of ingredients they have in them. One was found that had antifreeze in it.

  6. Phenicks Says:

    Antifreeze wasn’t found, a component Ethylene Glycol a was found. It has relatively low toxicity (1.4 g/kg). This means that a 175lb man would need to consume 1/4lb of pure Ethylene Glycol to be in toxic levels. I don’t know the renal clearance rate but I’m sure especially since the minute amounts found in the e-cigarette must first be vaporized, inhaled, and absorbed, the toxicity is still much lower then standard “natural” cigarettes.
