The smearing of a respected tobacco scientist:

Marc Gunther, an independent freelance journalist, has written about the actors involved in Karl Erik's shameful treatment.

  • The smearing of a tobacco scientist: Norwegian sociologist Karl Erik Lund was banned from a conference on e-cigarettes because…..er, for no good reason
  • Lund is a senior researcher at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health who has studied tobacco use for more than three decades. He has testified for the plaintiffs in five lawsuits against the industry. “I’m not the tobacco industry’s friend,” he says. “Far from it.”
  • There’s a pattern here. “The Lund affair was no accident or mistake, but the deliberate targeting of Karl and the conference,” says Gerry Stimson.
