Did the FDA Do Enough Fast Enough to Stop the Vaping Crisis?

“It’s time to hit the stop button
on this giant chemistry experiment
being conducted on the public,
a large portion of them teens and young adults.”

“Not a single e-cigarette on the market, including JUUL, the most popular brand, has gone through FDA regulatory review. In 2017, the agency allowed the products to stay on the market while it delayed reviewing them — a decision a federal judge recently ruled against. The FDA should never have allowed e-cigarettes onto the market without determining whether they benefit public health — a major requirement of the Tobacco Control Act is to prevent just this type of situation. It’s time to hit the stop button on this giant chemistry experiment being conducted on the public, a large portion of them teens and young adults.” (https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/27/perspectives/vaping-epidemic-juul-e-cigarettes-fda/index.html).

“STOP VAPING IMMEDIATELY”

“Stop vaping immediately,
health officials urge, as
2nd person dies in Oregon
of vaping-related lung illness”

““If you vape, whether it’s cannabis, nicotine or other products, please quit,” said Dr. Dean Sidelinger, the Oregon Health Authority health officer. “These are addictive substances, and we encourage people to take advantage of free resources to help them quit.” Gov. Kate Brown said she has asked state lawyers to find out what legal options the state has, including instating a temporary ban on all vaping products. Brown also urged Oregonians to stop vaping.” (https://www.oregonlive.com/news/2019/09/2nd-oregon-death-in-vaping-related-severe-lung-illness-announced.html).

If you were addicted to tobacco and are using a vape device as an alternative nicotine device to help you quit… and your physician agrees with that decision… I take no issue with that use… If you are just vaping for fun… please stop.

If you or a loved one suffered catastrophic injury, including, but not limited to, stroke, seizure, serious lung disease, miscarriage, or delivery of a baby suffering from birth defects after using e-cigarette devices… If your child or teenager has become addicted to e-cigarettes (vapes)… Please contact a lawyer and consider contacting my firm.

VAPING KILLS CHILDREN

VAPING IS KILLING CHILDREN

I can’t write it any more plainly than that. One would have to be living under a rock to think otherwise, because there is simply no way one can watch the news, surf the internet, talk to other people, etc. and not believe that children are dying from vaping. The brand new vaping industry is using old plays out of big tobacco’s playbooks to get an entire generation hooked on addictive poisons. The only thing that is going wrong for the vaping manufacturers and distributors is that their products are killing their customers too quickly. Unlike smoking tobacco which takes many years to cause disease and death, the poisons inhaled from vaping cause disease and death within a few months. People who have become addicted and/or been harmed in any way should consider holding the vape industry accountable. People who have lost loved ones to vaping should consider holding the vape industry accountable. Many lawyers, including those at my firm, want to help. Such suits not only put our clients and us on the right side, but have the potential to end the vaping epidemic.

If you suffered a stroke, seizure, serious lung disease, miscarriage, delivered a baby suffering from birth defects, or suffered other catastrophic injury after using e-cigarette devices, or if your teenager has become addicted to e-cigarettes (vapes), contact a lawyer, and consider contacting my firm. It is our goal to help put an end to this crisis by helping the victims file civil lawsuits to recoup their losses. If you are located in the State of California and want help, please call Attorney and Physician Paul J. Molinaro, M.D., J.D. today for a free consultation.

Pelvic Mesh Good? Pelvic Mesh Bad?

Whether you will read that pelvic mesh surgery is good or bad depends on the source of the words. That should be common sense. The mesh-makers say its great stuff – a wondrous material. The consumer advocacy groups say it harms a lot of women – leaves them much worse off. “In a survey of 2,220 women who had undergone pelvic mesh implants to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, 59% said the procedure did not resolve their original issue, and 58% said they were left experiencing pain during intercourse. However, this was a consumer survey, carried out by the consumer advocacy group, the Health Issues Centre, rather than being a scientific study.” (https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/aug/31/vaginal-pelvic-mesh-explainer). How many women are getting these surgeries? “The latest available FDA figures show approximately 300,000 women in the US undergo surgical procedures for prolapse each year and approximately 260,000 underwent surgical procedures to repair stress incontinence. According to industry estimates, approximately one out of three prolapse surgeries used mesh, and of the incontinence surgeries, over 80% were done transvaginally with mesh.” (https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/aug/31/vaginal-pelvic-mesh-explainer).

But just having a surgical complication does not mean someone did something wrong. Defense lawyers refer to something they call “acceptable risk” when saying that some patients will have unavoidable complications – even in the best of worlds. That’s true… sometimes. But what about when mesh simply disintegrates? Falls apart into many many splinter-like pieces that cause excruciating pain and other problems? What if the manufacturer knew that these complications could be avoided if they made the mesh out of expensive materials but opted to use cheap “blue shit” instead? That’s a different situation, right?

If you, a family member, a loved one, a friend, or anyone you know has had pelvic surgery that involves mesh and had complications wherein the mesh fell apart, it may be time for you or that other person to contact a lawyer. There are statutes of limitations (deadlines), so waiting too long can mean no case. Paul J. Molinaro, M.D., J.D. offers free consultations on mesh cases for patients who had surgery in California.

THE BLUE SHIT

“This is not going to go away anytime soon and competition will have a field day,” Smith warned in an email. “Major damage control offensive needs to start to educate the reps and surgeons UPFRONT that they will see BLUE shit and it is OK. This is why I wanted to launch TVT-O in clear!!!!” (http://fida-advocate.blogspot.com/2014/05/dallas-observer-ethicon-and-blue-shit.html).

Well, it was NOT okay… far from it!

THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC DRAINED STATE AND LOCAL BUDGETS… CAN THIS MONEY BE RECOVERED FROM THE OPIOID MANUFACTURERS AND DISTRIBUTORS?

The United States is suffering from a prescription opioid epidemic, the likes of which has never been seen before. In the late 1980s, when I was in medical school, I was correctly taught that opioids were addictive and dangerous pain relieving medications which should be used in very limited situations. I was taught that opiate pain relievers were only to be used for short-term treatment of severe acute pain like that experienced immediately following surgery or for long-term palliative (end-of-life) care in cancer patients. My respected medical school professors and fellow students did not question these ethical and wise standards. Recognizing the huge profits that can be made from these addictive substances, the opioid manufacturers and distributors have systematically eroded such established and respected views and created a demand for opiates from patients and their physicians.

Many people wrongly believe that those who suffer from opiate abuse and die from opiate overdoses are heroin addicts and abusers of other illegal street drugs. Those beliefs may have been true decades ago, but currently the majority of opiate abusers are abusing prescription opiates. The prescription opiates causing the physical, economic, and social devastation are made by largescale pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributed by billion-dollar wholesalers, prescribed by licensed healthcare providers, and sold by pharmacies. The only true link to heroin and the current opiate epidemic is that most of today’s heroin users abused prescription opiates before turning to heroin to feed their addiction.

Civil lawsuits wherein a plaintiff city, county, or state sues the manufacturers and distributors of opioids can provide a means of recovery for the money spent fighting the opioid epidemic. If you are a government official, and would like more information about recovering money from opioid manufacturers and distributors, call Paul J. Molinaro, M.D., J.D. for a free consultation. Paul is available to meet with you, speak at your meetings and conferences, answer questions, and explain what kinds of recovery may be available. Potential clients outside of California may also contact Paul for a referral to a local attorney. Paul can explain how governmental entities can create, and pass, a resolution to allow it to retain private attorneys to and file a contingent suit. Successful politicians care for their constituents and are good stewards of their constituents’ money. Getting money back from those responsible for its loss is part of that goal.
