Yet there is no evidence that Frieden’s claim isRead More
Is America’s ‘top’ doctor purposely ignoring research about vaping products? By Kevin Crowley – June 2nd, 2016 Blatantly ignoring research, Dr. Frieden is failing the public by dismissing e-cigarettes as another alternative for smokers to kick their habit.
