Vaping vs Alcohol – which is ACTUALLY worse? Let’s look at the facts, the madness, and the hypocrisy of the FDA…
Thanks to the FDA, vaping is now considered to be a tobacco product. This means it is treated exactly the same as tobacco, despite the fact it does not contain ANY tobacco whatsoever.
By this logic, all NRT products would also be considered “tobacco products” as they feature nicotine. But, of course, this is not the case. And the reason? Well, they’re made by the FDA’s good buddies in Big Pharma.
So what we have here is simple: a product designed to stop people from smoking that actually works is now being regulated out of existence because… the FDA, Big Pharma cannot control it/profit from it.
Public Health England has been championing vaping for years; it has confirmed again and again that vaping is 95% safer than smoking and is 100% NOT a gateway to smoking.
And then you have alcohol, which gets a free pass with pretty much everybody despite causing grief, despair, and destruction in millions of peoples’ lives every year.
How can this be?
How can a substance, known to be utterly toxic, that causes damage to the body, and ruins the lives of millions of people, simply get a free pass when it comes to advertising? How can a BEER company sponsor the Super Bowl? Or McDonald’s the Olympics?
Just think of the irony there for a moment… In an age of obesity, we have a fast food company sponsoring a sporting event? That’s like a Drug Cartel sponsoring The Betty Ford Clinic!?
Vaping vs Alcohol – Which Is Actually Worse?
I drink (and I vape too). I’m not some kind of Puritan that thinks alcohol should be banned or outlawed. I love drinking. What I don’t like, however, is mixed signals from posturing public health types.
If vaping is bad, then alcohol must be far worse. Just look at the facts associated with alcohol consumption in the USA:
“An estimated 88,0008 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women8) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States. The first is tobacco, and the second is poor diet and physical inactivity.” – NIAAA.
Well… no one has died from vaping. In fact, Public Health England thinks vaping could save millions of lives in the future by killing smoking within a generation.
So why aren’t we seeing vaping being pushed in the USA like it is in the UK? Why are booze companies allowed to freely advertise a hazardous product that kills 88,000 people a year?
It is freaking madness and it proves the “people” at the top, the guys calling the shots, have NO IDEA what they’re doing.
The machine is fed by special interests, money, and influence – three things the vaping industry does not have.[social_warfare]
Do you see what I’m talking about when I say, “mixed signals” from posturing public health advocates? They don’t care about you. Not really. How could they let alcohol get a free pass and vilify vaping as a plague on our society?
The science is here already: vaping is pro-health, pro-harm reduction, and it is helping millions quit a very dangerous habit. But the FDA wants to stop this? It wants to stop progress by increasing tax on vaping products, banning flavors, and stopping companies advertising?
This is utter madness, especially in a country crippled by medical bills and an ever-growing obesity problem. The key problems facing America are that it is too fat and too unhealthy.
And then you have the FDA taking away access to vaping products, recommending people eat high-carb diets, and allowing alcohol, drug, and GMO companies to peddle their wares to millions of people on TV…
At some point, you’ve got to wonder what’s really going on?
It’s almost like “THEY” don’t want you to be healthy. That you’re more profitable if you’re fat, sick, and dying…
