“Based More On Emotion Than Science”: Steve Forbes Blasts FDA Vaping Rule


To hear the FDA and other public health officials tell it, you’d think e-cigarettes are as lethal as the traditional tobacco kind.

As this segment of What’s Ahead explains, the opposite is true.

The only thing vaping and tobacco have in common is nicotine, which is addictive, not lethal. It’s all the other stuff in tobacco, like tar, that make cigarettes so life-threatening.

Vaping is actually very effective in helping people quit smoking—far more so than nicotine patches, gums and lozenges. This is why Britain and other countries encourage its use.
