**I am the author of this piece, and there is a section missing at the end. Instead of: Michael Stearns, professor in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Department, Boston University School of Public Health, argues that:not "every e-cigarette supporter agrees with this theory." It should read: Michael Stearns , professor in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Department, Boston University School of Public Health, argues that: "The [anti smoking movement] is so heavily funded by Big Pharma that it cannot risk the loss of pharmaceutical profits, even if disallowing the experiment comes at the expense of a substantial number of human lives."
This and the fact that the senator that called for the e-cigarette ban has received 128 250 $ from pharmaceutical interests pretty well reveals the whole sordid story. The rest of the article is a must read as well.
Strange how Health Canada jumped on the bandwagon against e-cigarettes so quickly!
Want to tell the Minister of Health what you think of the way they protect pharma interests more than their citizens' well-being, you can write to this address: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/home-accueil/contact/minist-eng.php
Does Big Pharm Have Links to an Anti E-Cigarette Campaign?
** Correction: Mr. Dunsworth, author of the article, advises that Dr. Michael Stearns mentionned in his comment, should actually read Dr. Michael Siegel.
