Allison’s blog is excellent in general but this week’s post is really fantastic. Most of it is her personal journey married to a smoker, continuing into his discovery of vaping, and her initial opposition, her observations, and how it all turned out. Very charming and very real.
Also I recommend looking at the comments.
One quote of Allison’s really hit on a serious concern I have, especially with the still-growing Ebola epidemic. Clive Bates picked out the exact same paragraph, and echoed my thoughts exactly. I seriously worries me to watch Public Health departments trash their own reputations.
The public’s trust in these departments could be life-and-death someday soon, and I am absolutely appalled at the CDC for not only deliberately misusing the reputation of the world’s foremost leader in defense against deadly outbreaks, but leading local state, city, and county health departments to trash their own reputations — often on video which is then linked and spread worldwide in the vaping community.
Watching these hapless Health Departments, I’m quite sure they are doing this in all innocence because their expertise is implementing the CDC’s expertise, not duplicating or double-checking it.
I’ll blog about the whole crying-wolf thing after I get my second FDA comment written and sent in.
