The following will be a growing set of recent, credible and trustworthy studies — published, peer-reviewed science conducted by experts who have no conflicts of interest and no stake in slanting science one way or another.
Some biased studies slip through the peer review process. We will point those out. These papers usually come from the chemical industry, former tobacco consultants or labs indebted to corporations. All of them attempt to distort or ignore good science in order to put positive spins on health hazards of various products.
We will also include select news articles curated for accuracy, context and completeness. When possible, we will pair them with peer-reviewed studies.
