Sound Science? | Renowned Researcher Talks Vaping Policy & Panic | RegWatch (Live)

*Guest: Dr. Kenneth Warner, Dean Emeritus, Prof. Emeritus, School of Public Health, University of Michigan | Member of FDA’s Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee and Health Canada’s Science Advisory Board on Vaping Products

It’s a turbulent time for vaping. Over the past 24-months the industry struggled to manage one crisis after another: panic over the so-called teen vaping epidemic; hysteria over the so-called vaping-related lung illness; a mad rush to ban vaping products; and vicious attacks by anti-vaping activists exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic for ideological gain. All the while, fending off an endless stream of suspect science and a rowdy regulatory process.

Essentially, the turbulence is fueled by a battle within public health over tobacco harm reduction; the divide is continental, both in space and mind.

Joining us today to talk these issues and more is Dr. Kenneth Warner. Over his 45-year career, he’s presented in over 250 professional publications, served as the World Bank’s representative to negotiations on the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (the world’s first global health treaty,) served as Senior Scientific Editor of the 25th anniversary Surgeon General’s report on smoking and health and was a founding member of the Board of Directors of the Truth Initiative.

What insights will he share about the issues and challenges facing vaping?
