La communication hautement médiatisée de Mme Gratziou lors du dernier congrès de ces spécialistes relève selon certains de la pure patascience et de la propagande.
Christina Gratziou : E-cigarette is bad for health. ERS Congress, Vienna, september 2012.
“We do not yet know whether unapproved nicotine delivery products, such as e-cigarettes, are safer than normal cigarettes, despite marketing claims that they are less harmful. This research helps us to understand how these products could be potentially harmful.”
“E-cigarette causes problem in the respiratory system. It increases symptoms like cough and sore throat. It increases the heart rate and airways resistance for the lung. So we don't suggest anybody to take and use e-cigarette as an alternative tool for smoking. There are other tools for smoking cessation problems that we can follow and successful attemps.”
"Why do you think the e-cigarette is very successful ?"
“It is marketed because it is another alternative for tobacco products. It has good marketing support.”

"The rest of the story is that the media has misrepresented the study findings, due in part to misrepresentation of the study findings by the authors themselves.
Even worse, the press release disseminates a completely unsupported conclusion that runs contrary to all existing scientific evidence and which - if made by a tobacco company - would be considered fraudulent.
Finally, all of this misrepresentation and deception occurs in the existence of a severe financial conflict of interest which was hidden from the media and the public."

Christina Gratziou is a liar, The biomarkers lie, Gratziou ERS press release – where is the science?
Anti-THR Lie of the Day, Carl V Phillips (@carlvphillips) #antiTHRlies
Some clues about when you are being lied to by an activist pretending to be a researcher :
"To summarize, we do not merely have a case where the authors made dramatic claims that were not supported by the reported results. Rather, we basically have no results, since they are meaningless as presented and highly suspect also. The only thing that we know for sure is that the methodology was never designed to produce useful information, or at least not useful at more than the pilot “let’s see if we can even do these lab measurements before designing some useful research that uses them” level. This means that the most fundamental lie in all of this is not the bald political assertions about there being “harm” or that you might as well smoke which were not supported by the science; rather, it is the implicit claim that any science at all was being reported."
