Breaking Down The REAL NUMBERS

Published

on

In a study done by the CDC and published by the NYTS in 2018 it showed that 20.8% of all high school students were vaping and suggested just by the infographics alone that it looks like an unprecedented epidemic. What they do not show you very clearly is the language used and how the numbers work out exactly. We would like to say this was done by accident but have a hard time believing it was. So let’s take a look at the real numbers and language used in the study.

First of all: let’s look at how the question was asked for the category that lumped all users into the 20.8% number.

* Current e-cigarette use was assessed by responses to these questions during the indicated survey years: “In the past 30 days, which of the following products have you used on at least one day?”

That’s interesting right? This means if person were to take one inhale off a vape device they would be lumped into having used the device and included in this 20.8% number. Let’s use that phillosophy on other things. Let’s say you were asked if in the past 30 days you consumed any alcholoic beverage. If you answered yes would it be considered to be an epidemic of alcohol addiction? Of course not. So why skew the numbers to look so drastic? Agenda driven of course. The reason being is because the numbers actually break down like this:

  • Students Using An Ecig and NO OTHER TOBACCO PRODUCTS more than 20 times in a month: 0.6%
  • Students Using An Ecig and NO OTHER TOBACCO PRODUCTS less than 19 times a month: 4.7%
  • Students Using An Ecig and OTHER FORMS OF TOBACCO more than 20 times in a month: 5.10%
  • Students Using An Ecig and OTHER FORMS OF TOBACCO less than 19 times a month: 10.30%

The 0.6% number is the number we need to look at. This is the number of kids who are vaping or using ecigs on a regular basis (meaning every day or every other day consistently) and have not used any other form of tobacco. To use any other number than this would be blaming vaping for kids also using cigarettes. How can you blame vaping if the person is already a tobacco user? That doesn’t make sense, but 0.6% is not a scary number and does not fit the agenda. So let’s lump them all together and use the largest number we can find 20.8%. And there you have it. A propaganda campaign off and running to start planting the seed of “epidemic”.

Stay tuned for a documentary we will be releasing that ties all the hysteria and anti-vape propaganda together. Follow the money – follow the money!

United Vapers Alliance: Vaping Advocates and Leaders Hold Successful DC Rally

Over 20 vaping consumer advocates shared life-changing stories during the rally on their journey to vaping and how it has positively impacted their friends and family since switching to a tobacco-free lifestyle.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Vaping advocates from across the country descended on Washington D.C. on Saturday to show support for small vapor businesses and to demonstrate to President Trump that their votes have the power to change the upcoming election. Vaping advocates demanded President Trump push for the Food & Drug Administration to reform the Pre-Market Tobacco Application (PMTA) process or extend the cutoff before the looming deadline of Sept. 9. With 14,000 small businesses in jeopardy of vanishing overnight, the FDA is still tracking towards the Sept. 9 deadline requiring small businesses to file pricey and burdensome PMTAs to keep their products for sale.  

Organized by United Vapers Alliance, advocates peacefully protested to show the world that “We Vape, We Vote” is a movement that has the influence to disrupt the upcoming election with millions of potential votes up for grabs. The vaping advocates vowed to continue to push elected officials to reject prohibitionist policies that threaten access to life-saving vapor products.

“If President Trump does not deliver on real reform at FDA, he is not only risking the destruction of an American industry, but he will be also be creating a situation where millions of adult ex-smokers could return to deadly combustible cigarettes,” said Dimitris Agrafiotis, who serves as executive director of the Tennessee Smoke-Free Association. “HHS Secretary Alex Azar has pledged PMTA reform, but he failed to deliver. Now, it is up to President Trump to stop the FDA from destroying 99% of the industry and leaving 160,000 Americans unemployed in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Despite fearmongering by special interest groups, vapor products manufacturers are not Big Tobacco and their technology products should not be subject to the same regulations. Studies have repeatedly shown that vapor products expose users to a tiny fraction of the harmful chemicals that cigarettes contain. Millions of adults throughout the United Sates have successfully quit smoking cigarettes because of vaping products.

Over 20 vaping consumer advocates shared life-changing stories during the rally on their journey to vaping and how it has positively impacted their friends and family since switching to a tobacco-free lifestyle. They were also joined by featured speakers and leaders in the industry Dimitris Agrafiotis, executive director of the Tennessee Smoke-Free Association; Amanda Wheeler, president of Rocky Mountain Smoke-Free Alliance; and Gregory Conley, president of American Vaping Association.

This is UVA’s second annual Save the Vape rally and they continue to ask vaping advocates from across the nation to call the White House Switchboard and say, “We Vape, We Vote”.   

About United Vapors Alliance
United Vapers Alliance (UVA) educates the public and politicians regarding the benefits of harm reduction via vapor products, and strongly conveys that changes must be made, within the FDA, to provide an economically feasible pathway to market. Currently, the FDA pathway to market is not obtainable for small and medium size manufacturers. The only entities that can afford the FDA pathway to market is Big Tobacco, while more than 11,000 family owned vapor businesses will shut their doors. Left unchallenged, 99% of the vapor products, will exit the market in September 2020. UVA does this via social media, public events and grassroots activism.

Are Vapers Saving The Environment?

Cigarette smoke is also extremely harmful for the environment because tobacco smoke contains approximately more than 7,000 chemicals and 70 of them can cause cancer.

We have been in this vaping vs smoking debate since we were first introduced to vaping. Here’s another topic of debate that revolves around vaping vs smoking.

Is smoking better for our environment or vaping?

Let’s find it out below.

Smoking

It has been a part of this world from the longest we can remember. From the start we have read about how smoking cigarettes harms our environment.

We can’t deny facts, smokers leave cigarette butts behind that are found in trash cans on our sidewalks, roads, and parking lots. Cigarette butts are still one of a major problem we are facing to this date.

They take around 18 months to 10 years to decompose! Which means that the cigarette filters are full of tar, nicotine, and other toxins that can seep into the ground and affect every organism that comes into contact with them. Furthermore, these cigarette leftovers are pushed by rain into drains and eventually reach the ocean where they release toxins.

Cigarette smoke is also extremely harmful for the environment because tobacco smoke contains approximately more than 7,000 chemicals and 70 of them can cause cancer.

Even, excessive exposure to secondhand smoke gravely affects the cardiovascular system and can cause coronary heart disease and strokes.

Vaping

On the other hand, vaping has been used as a tool to help smokers quit smoking because It helps reduce the exhale and inhale of toxins.

Vape devices use a small or no amount of nicotine and just have flavorings added to the E-liquids.

Most vaping devices have refillable pods and tanks which means most devices are reusable. This quality makes vaping eco-friendly, because vaping doesn’t play a part in contributing to the planet’s pollution.

Vaping smoke doesn’t release harmful toxin and e-cigarettes do not really produce smoke so vaping in public is not harmful.

People don’t usually mind vape clouds but smoking in public places is considered to be extremely harmful and is not at all accepted by the community.

This information that we have gathered is enough to understand that vaping is a better alternative to smoking. Aside from our own health, vaping is also not harmful to the people around. As well as it adds to the well-being of our mother earth.
