    Article from "USA Today"
    Vaping study retracted: Scientists want probe of UCSF tobacco research

    Jayne O'Donnell USA TODAY

    Story Highlights:
    • The retracted study by researcher Stanton Glantz was paid for primarily by two federal grants.
    • Questions were raised after another researcher concluded that the majority of the heart attacks happened before people vaped.
    • Glantz's work is often used by anti-vaping advocates in and outside of government to argue for stricter regulations.
    One of the country's best-known tobacco researchers is under fire this week after one of his federally funded vaping studies was retracted and other academics are calling for federal review of some of his other influential anti-vaping research.

    The retracted study, by University of California, San Francisco medical school professor Stanton Glantz and published in Journal of the American Heart Association, said vaping doubled the risk of heart attacks. It was paid for primarily by the second of two $20 million grants awarded to Glantz and UCSF in 2018 from the National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration to research tobacco and e-cigarettes.

    In July, USA TODAY reported on questions about the study and another researcher's conclusion that the majority of the heart attacks happened before people vaped.

    The timing of Glantz's recent work is of particular importance as it came as the Trump administration considered restricting the sale of flavored electronic cigarettes. Glantz's work is often used by anti-vaping advocates in and outside of government to argue for stricter regulations.

    In January, the Food and Drug Administration banned flavors other than menthol and tobacco in the smaller vape pens popular with teens and restricted the sale of other youth-friendly flavors to vape shops and smoking bars restricted to adults.
