Surely by now, everyone reading this has seen at least one report that mainstream media outlets have put out this week. Not only have they been attacking the e-cigarette industry through their online publications but they have been attacking us through their print and TV media as well. Of course, we Vapers are able to see right through these reports for what they really are, scare tactics. It has become apparent that Big Pharma is lining the pockets of media outlets in order to scare the general public away from using e-liquid (as they call it) and e-cigarettes in general. The question is, what are we going to do about it?
I have put together an article on Examiner titled: 5 Substances in your home more harmful than E-Cigarettes that is worth sharing with everyone you can on your social networks.
We have to show the news media that we are not going to lay down and let them try to scare people out of trying e-cigarettes. Each of us has our own story about how we quit smoking using e-cigs and we know that they are the most effective method for quitting smoking that has ever been invented.
I am working hard to get these articles picked up by Google News and published on every website I can get to pick them up, and so far I have been successful at getting all of the articles I’ve published fighting back against mainstream media picked up by Google News; however, it is going to take more. In order for us to get the real story out there, we are all going to have to share these types of articles with our circles. People need to know the truth and it is up to us to give it to them.
Here’s the truth:
E-Cigarette liquid is not the problem. The problem is irresponsible parenting. There is no way in the world that a kid should be able to drink nicotine liquid if parents are acting responsibly. Of course, we are talking about the same parents who used to let their kids eat their cigarettes before they switched over to electronic cigarettes.
I based my article on the latest NPDS report in which there were 5,881 reports of exposure to cigarettes alone. Of those 5,881 calls to the Poison Control Center 5,313 of them were made about kids under the age of 5! So, we can only assume that since there are so many people making the switch from cigarettes to e-cigs that we are going to get some of those irresponsible parents who leave things they shouldn’t leave lying around their kids.
Why isn’t the media telling that story instead of trying to make it out to be the fact that “E-Liquid” is largely available?
This madness has got to stop!
It is up to us to inform the public about the real problem and we need to flood every social media outlet with every article we can find about the real problem.
It is time for you to LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
Will you stand up today and do something about these reports major news outlets are putting out? Or, Will you just sit back with a defeated attitude and say to yourself, “There’s nothing I can do about it” like so many people are doing?
Make the choice to take a stand today!
