TWISTED RESEARCH: Typical Stanton Glantz study–focuses mainly on adverse effects and important questions/answers are not made public. What was risk for never-smokers who vaped, as that would show risk that completely excludes previous smoking as a risk factor? Are dual users at higher risk because they’re heavier smokers, so their risk is already higher due to greater exposure to smoke and it’s more difficult for them to completely switch to vaping? How long did they smoke vs vape? Were people who had been vaping longer at less risk than those who only started recent to the study? These are important factors that are not disclosed by the researchers–likely intentional omissions, considering Glantz’s consistent false attacks on vaping over the past decade.
