Electronic Cigarettes Association President, Affirms Attorneys General Irresponsibility in Banning e-cigarettes

IRVINE, Calif.- Former Congressman Matt Salmon, who is president of the Electronic Cigarette Association (ECA) ECassoc.org (’http://www.ecassoc.org’), states,”It is disheartening that the FDA issued a warning to the public against electronic cigarettes without conclusive data to support the claim.” This has now led the Attorneys General of Oregon, Connecticut and now Kentucky to ban the sale of the e-cigs in their states. According to the former congressman, the FDA has a responsibility to do homework and present all of the facts with such a warning.

There are currently hundreds of thousands of “e-cig” users nationally that would be devastated if the FDA took the electronic cigarette from them. The health benefits for the users are huge.

Tanya Moraffah, electronic cigarette user, said, “Going back to smoking tobacco would be lining up for a death sentence. I felt horrible, was very sick and had a severe cough all the time when I smoked tobacco.”

Peter French said, “The e-cigarette is literally saving my life.”

Terri Davidson said, “I no longer have a heavy feeling in my lungs due to tar from smoking tobacco.”

Thousands of people that have stopped smoking cigarettes and use the electronic cigarette have similar stories.

Leading expert in tobacco control research and harm reduction, Dr. Michael Siegel says, “The FDA and anti-smoking groups are comparing electronic cigarettes to a solution of spring-fresh Maine mountain water. What they need to compare electronic cigarettes to is something known as a Marlboro cigarette.”

Dr. Siegel continues,”In addition, recent research conducted by Dr. Murray Laugesen and Health New Zealand LTD. reveals that the toxic emissions score for electronic cigarettes is much lower than that of conventional cigarettes. In fact, the toxic emissions score - which is a score based on the levels of 59 priority toxicants - was zero for electronic cigarettes. In contrast, it was 126 for Marlboro and it was no lower than 100 for any brand of conventional cigarette tested.”

Dr. Brad Rodu, DDS, Endowed Chair, Tobacco Harm Reduction Research University of Louisville, states, “The FDA tested e-cigarettes for TSNAs using a questionable sampling regimen, and the methods were so sensitive that the results may have no possible significance to users. The agency failed to report specific levels of these contaminants.” Dr. Rodu went on to say, “These are not the actions of an agency that is science-based and consumer friendly.”

Congressman Salmon says that some of the companies that are part of the ECA such as inLife electronic cigarette product lines are approved by the FDA. The InLife products are manufactured by an FDA-approved facility also. InLife was recently featured in the Life Section of the Orange County Register on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2009.
