@srntorg @BasicSRNT @ats_eoph @atspeds @SenatorDurbin @CongressmanRaja @DonnaShalala @SenatorRomney The tragic delay of the federal menthol cigarette ban continues to victimize minorities. Sad that menthol cigarettes were not even mentioned by @FDATobacco at the TCORS meeting.

I think its reasonable that my 5-yr old did not immediately recognize me after my 1st hair cut in ~8 months, especially with that mask on me. He doubtfully asked my wife-"Do I Know him mommy?"😳😆. Or maybe I need to spend more time with him!!

What do #COVID19 reinfection cases mean? Here is a commentary I wrote on this topic for @TheLancetInfDis. Recovery from #SARSCoV2 infection does not guarantee protection from reinfection, disease or becoming infectious again. But a good vaccine can. thelancet.com/journals/lanin…

@ats_eoph @basicsrnt @srntorg Sugars and humectants (glycerol) are common additives to cigarettes. Pennings et al., published in @NTR_Journal, find a strong correlation with aldehyde production (formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acrolein) and other toxicants. academic.oup.com/ntr/article…
