Where beliefs about tobacco control clash with the realities of vaping, leading experienced public health officials to make irrational assumptions and take unreasonable actions in opposition to the life saving potential of e-cigarettes.

Why do anti-smoking activists reject the scientific opinion of colleagues in the public health movement that believe e-cigarettes could be the ‘endgame’ strategy to beat the tobacco epidemic? Find out now—only on RegWatch by – October 14, 2016.
