Read the poll then vote no please. 

Unfortunately,  "go fuck spiders you corrupt, interfering, lying, , ethically challenged hypocritical bastards" was not an option in the poll...Angry

RE: British medical journal requires some education
Can't see the poll, but the front page article is annoying.
http://www.bmj.com/content/347/bmj.f7473

The supplementary data to it is enlightening - they regard paid advertisements as the same as editorial content. This paper is of such low quality it shouldn't have been published.
http://www.bmj.com/content/suppl/2013/12...efault.pdf

From the vehemently slanted piece which is heading for the desk of a professor of medicine who vapes and is infamous for his utter lack of tolerance for medical bullshit.

One might also want to ask what the grossly overfunded charity Cancer Research UK is doing sponsoring such openly political and utterly non evidence-based viewpoints. The Charity Commissioners might well be interested. Charities are NOT allowed to do politics in any way, shape or form.

"Concern has already been expressed about these developments. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence notes that e-cigarettes “could, without regulation, be marketed in a way that may ultimately promote smoking,”4 and researchers have highlighted the need to monitor e-cigarette marketing.5 6 7 8 An analysis of e-cigarette coverage in the UK and Scottish press from 2007 to 2012 showed that newspaper stories often describe the products as a way of getting around smoke-free legislation and glamorise use through association with celebrities.9 We were commissioned by Cancer Research UK to study e-cigarette marketing and media coverage in the UK from May 2012 to June …"

Always been the way with doctors, Aneurin Bevan at the foundation of the NHS said, "I could only silence the doctors by stuffing their mouths with money". Not much has changed.

On farther digging, the poll appears to have vanished. Hold on till I log in with my work credentials. Or at least I would if I could remember what my Athens password is. Off to the library in the morning to sort that out.

The poll has been changed. It was "should we follow new yorks lead and ban ecigs in public places" 

It got about 400 votes and was 82% against last time I I looked. 

I'm not surprised the political doctors are corrupt,  I mean heaven forbid they should try and help someone in some way. ...

RE: British medical journal requires some education
Now it's 94.2% No (1641 votes) 5.8% Yes (101 votes)

I could only see the poll when logged in via Athens. Strange...

RE: British medical journal requires some education
Are there any governments or public bodies out there without a biased agenda when it comes to electronic cigarettes?

Absolutely not! they each have their agendas which is first and foremost to secure as much money as possible from Big Pharma, Big Tobacco and Government Revenue based sponsorship.

The whole thing stinks of greed corruption and bribery.. you know it, I know it, the institutions know it and the government knows it. The more people realise this and expose the corrupt bastards for what they are, the better place this country will be for all.

RE: British medical journal requires some education
I read somewhere a while ago that the NHS in the UK could not afford to run without the tax income from tobacco cigarettes - on average a smoker allegedly pays more in tax than they require for health treatment. This leaves the balance to help fund the NHS.

RE: British medical journal requires some education
I believe I read somewhere recently that the government gets around 11 billion in tobacco revenue versus 2.6 billion spent treating tobacco-related illnesses. 

However, the most expensive item for the NHS is very old people and there just aren't all that many very old smokers. They die before they cost the NHS too much.
