A Powerful Documentary About Government Failure, Big Business & The Vaping Revolution
The film, “A Billion Lives”, whose title reflects the number of smoking deaths expected this century, explains the self-serving intentions behind the war against the vaping industry.
The catalyst behind Filmmaker Aaron Biebert's documentary, was the senseless publication of many scientific studies that were spreading more lies than truth about e-cigarettes. According to Biebert,
“When the New England Journal of Medicine published that study showing how e-cigarette vapor had more formaldehyde than cigarettes, I took notice,” he said. “I have friends that quit smoking after taking up vaping and I was concerned to see that e-cigarettes were worse. After I mentioned that study to a vaper, they pointed me to one scientist’s rebuttal showing that the entire study was built on the false premise of overheating the liquid. The entire study was a sham.”
The film aims to expose the corrupt forces behind the movement to destroy the e-cigarette industry Surprisingly, Biebert believes Big Tobacco isn't the instigator of ecig myths.
“The bigger problem is darker corruption forces at work. Big Pharma, Big Media, Big Non-Profits, Big Legal, and Big Government all have an addiction to money and they are sacrificing their core missions in pursuit of it.”
The documentary addresses important questions about our public health system and the media.
- Why aren’t scientists embracing ecigarettes when they show such promise as a real way to stop these deaths?
- Why does the media continually report stories that are scientifically incorrect?
“A Billion Lives” will premiere in early 2016 at film festivals like Sundance. The filmmaker hopes it will also be shown in theaters across the U.S.

Thanks for posting this article! I look forward to seeing this film.
According to 2013/14 US surveys presented at the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco (SRNT) conference,
– 15 to 21 million US adults regularly used e-cigs,
– 3.2 – 4.3 million e-cig users no longer regularly smoke cigarettes
…And that’s just in the US alone and back in 2014!
You need to address the issue of why you are selling a product that is obviously NOT SAFE, if they are BLOWING UP ON YOUR CUSTOMERS!!! Why is it Not even being addressed? People really need to know this is happening with YOUR PRODUCT AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO FIX IT!!!! Denying the fact is irresponsible, unfair and just wrong. You should be shut down if you don’t step up to the plate and apologize!!! Yes, you may have a law suit, but hey that’s business. This is coming from someone who was hit by a drunk driver and now I’m disabled. And I Never SAW A DIME, after two brain surgeries and I will live a life of pain. Hey but this is to you to do the right thing. I hope you do! God bless
Hi Ali, sorry to read about your accident. I wish you all the best and a good outcome.
E-cigarettes are safe, however, some people are just extremely careless. There was this guy who put two batteries in his pocket, along with his bunch of keys, causing a short-circuit with the batteries and they burnt his leg seriously. The media heard that these batteries were the batteries used in a e-cigarette, so suddenly it was the e-cigarette which exploded!
Some people, who were not very clever at all, also put the wrong coils in their e-cigarettes. Just like the guy with the keys in his pocket, they basically short-circuited the battery in their e-cigarettes causing the batteries to overheat and ‘explode’! One of the first things I heard when I wanted to buy my first e-cigarette was to be careful with the batteries…
You cannot blame the truck which hit you for your accident, and in the same way you cannot blame the e-cigarettes when people do stupid things!
