Does the FDA have a baised agenda against electronic cigarettes?
I have just had an article published on IVN.US which argues about the FDA having a biased agenda against electronic cigarettes:-

http://ivn.us/2014/01/10/biased-agenda-e...beta-v-1-0

I hope you find it an interesting read.

But it isn't just the FDA - the BMA is making the same sorts of noises.

One wonders how much of the global "establishments" own shares of tobacco companies.

They're Balls Deep in bed with them for sure but it's not just BT - Big Pharma are making the most noise as they have the most to lose.

Tobacco companies, while they'll lose some initial profit during the 'changeover' phase, in the long run they stand to make a massive amount of profit moreso than they do currently if they manage to monopolise  the market - which is exactly what will happen if ecigs are regulated as medicine.

i suspect loss of revenue is the chief motive . the average US cost of a pack of cigarettes before any tax is applied is $1.75 , $ 3.50 with federal tax and ranging from $6-$15 with state tax .
kind of makes you rethink who big tobacco really is.

When life hands you lemmons , make lemmon aid . When life hands you coconuts , stuff them in your shirt and ask if they make your boobs look big .
