Dr. Farsalinos asks The Norwegian Institute of Public Health to retract false statements

In response to the report from The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) that I wrote about a couple of days ago, Dr. Farsalinos published a post this morning on his blog, demanding that NIPH immediately retract their false statements about passive e-cigarette exposure.
The most significant mistake in the report refers to passive exposure to e-cigarettes. In particular, the report mentions: “… nicotine levels in the environment following passive exposure to e-cigarette aerosols causes similarly high nicotine levels in the blood as that of passive smoking of regular cigarettes. This means that one can expect similar harmful nicotine-related effects of passive smoking from e-cigarettes as for regular cigarettes. This does not mean that passive exposure to aerosols from e-cigarettes causes carcinogenic effects, but that passive smoking may affect the cardiovascular system, have stimulatory effects and contribute to addiction”. Not a single word is true in this statement.
Pretty strong words from Dr. Farsalinos there, but nevertheless completely true. In addition to the fact that the actual levels of nicotine a "passive vaper" will absorb is completely harmless and has absolutely no biological effect, like I pointed out in my previous post, Dr. Farsalinos refers to his own study showing that nicotine levels in the environment are at least 10 times higher during smoking compared to e-cigarette use.

It's great to see that the criticism that vapers here in Norway have directed towards the NIPH report is supported by science. Well of course the criticism has been based on science all the way, but this statement from Dr. Farsalinos makes it a lot easier for us to prove it. Having the support of one of the leading and most respected scientists in the field of e-cigarettes is a huge advantage for us, as we're now working hard to enlighten the politicians and health officials that will soon decide how vaping will be regulated in Norway. A big, big thank you to Dr. Farsalinos for the support. Your statement and support means a lot!
