Anti-Smoking organisations trying to ban Electronic Cigarettes, pocket a total of $2.8 million from a multi-national pharmaceutical organisation
According to figures that have recently been released, eight anti-smoking organisations that have opposed electronic cigarettes and have requested them be removed from the market place, have between them pocketed a total of $2.8million from Pfizer, a multi-national pharmaceutical organisation. This huge financial ‘donation’ occurred from the start of 2011 to the beginning of 2012.
Further reports state that the pharmaceutical manufacturer of Chantix/Champix, which is a smoking cessation product, will lose out financially if electronic cigarettes become increasingly more popular.
What appears to be happening each time statements are released; giving negative opinions regarding electronic cigarettes, is that the authors are failing to disclose their financial interests in the pharmaceutical industry. However, by doing this, it becomes more evident that this is the main reason they are against the use of electronic cigarettes.
These groups are willingly or unwittingly protecting pharmaceutical profits, even if it comes at the expense to the health of the public, as why else would these people opposed a product that more and more people are using as an alternative instead of smoking, and is reducing the amount of cigarettes smoked in everyday life?
