  6. 'A Billion Lives' Film Review

    In relation to the new documentary on smoking cessation, 'A Billion Lives', the old saying "where there's smoke, there's usually fire" has never been a more appropriate. Earlier this week, I attended the San Diego premiere of the documentary by first-time filmmaker Aaron Biebert. The film presents the complex issues surrounding smoking cessation and the challenges millions of people around the world face who continue to use cigarettes which are known to kill at least half the people who are addicted to them. The film presents a series of compelling stories from doctors, health industry insiders, global policy makers, individual smokers and vapers, small business owners, and even former "Winston Man", David Goerlitz, who watched his brother die of lung cancer before deciding to quit smoking himself and end his advocacy for the tobacco industry. The film offers plausible explanations as to why viable smoking alternatives like vaping are being targeted with false and misleading studies and advertisements and how both the medical industry and public are becoming less informed about the real potential benefits and risks associated with vaping for no good reason.

  8. "Beyond the Cloud" a Vaping Documentary Review

    If you are a vaper, you have probably heard about documentaries like Vape Wave and A Billion Lives. While we wait for these films to become available for public viewing, another documentary called "Beyond the Cloud" by VapeExpo in France was released in its entirety for free viewing on YouTube. Despite it's being in French with subtitles, we think it is well done, informative, balanced, and well worth a watch. Dealing with the complex issues surrounding vaping, harm reduction, regulation, and public misperceptions about vaping, Beyond the Cloud offers informative interviews with policy makers and vaping advocates to tell a complete picture of the problem without bashing any one side.
