The United Nations’ World Health Organization projects that a billion people will die this century from smoking. In the next 20 years, there will be half a billion new smokers around the world.

While the number of smokers continues to rise dramatically, approximately 70% of them want to kick the habit. Sadly, the products doctors recommend are rarely effective — and some smoking cessation medicines are even known to lead to suicide. As rates of smoking-related death and disease continue to spiral out of control, many smokers feel trapped with very little options.

Thirteen years ago, a Chinese scientist and heavy smoker invented a vapor technology that successfully gave him, and other smokers, a safe, non-prescriptive, affordable, and effective way to stop smoking. This technology is regarded by health professionals around the world to be not only 95% safer than smoking, but also highly effective in helping people quit. However, its similarity to the action of smoking has been both its strength and its curse; it was quickly demonized, penalized, and banned in many countries.

As a result, one of the most contentious health debates in the history of public health is raging among smokers and former smokers who use vapor technology, government regulators who benefit from cigarette sales, and the powerful pharmaceutical industry.

It’s the making of a perfect storm.

To find the truth, award-winning director and executive producer Aaron Biebert traveled across four continents, interviewing medical doctors, scientists, technologists and policy makers from major international health organizations who are working to save a billion lives. What he found was shocking: complete government failure, widespread corruption in the public health community, and the manipulation of both perpetrated by the big businesses who profit from the sale of tobacco and smoking cessation drugs.

Featured in the film are these compelling interviews with leading experts from major international health organizations, including:

· Dr. Derek Yach – Former Executive Director for the World Health Organization (WHO) and currently Chief Health Officer of the Vitality Institute. Dr. Yach serves on several advisory boards including the World Economic Forum and the National Institutes of Health’s Fogarty International Centre.

· Dr. Delon Human – Former President of the World Medical Association (WMA) and adviser to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon.

· “The Winston Man” – David Goerlitz, a retired professional model known around the world as “The Winston Man” throughout the 80’s, was the first representative of the tobacco industry to not only quit smoking, but to advocate against smoking while employed by a cigarette company.

· Clive Bates – UK Director of Counterfactual, a public interest consultancy and advocacy practice, who previously worked in tobacco control and at the United Nations.

· Hon Lik – Long time smoker and technologist, Lik is the inventor of the modern e-cigarette who successfully used his invention to stop smoking.

A Billion Lives shows how pharmaceutical companies, anti-smoking advocacy groups, tobacco companies, and even our own state and federal governments are to blame for the disinformation, over-regulation, and banning of e-cigarettes worldwide.

A Billion Lives is a production of Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based Attention Era Media. Funded by the production company without funding from any outside organizations, the feature film won the Supreme Jury Prize and Best Director awards at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival when it premiered in Australia (July 2016). It also received a Remi Award from the Worldfest Houston International Film Festival, and the Dorn Award from the Global Forum on Nicotine. A Billion Lives made its North American premiere in Milwaukee, WI (August 2016), followed by Paris, France and Johannesburg, South African premieres (September 2016). Earlier this year, the film premiered to rave reviews at the Doc Edge Festival in Wellington, New Zealand (May 2016). It also premiered in Europe at the Palace of Culture in Warsaw, Poland (June 2016).

@eaze Vaping is indeed the future.
Smoke has carbon, and is responsible for most lung problems resulting from combustion.
I suggest investing in a GOOD herb vape, at least $100-200 vape.
The others simply combust the herbs.
So many ppl dislike vaping bcuz they tried a bad device.

@Kelpalots @DJColonelCorn A meta-study (I think around 2012) estimated that at the time ~17,000 people/year (in the US) died from complications arising out of internal gastrointestinal bleeding events thought to have been caused by NSAIDs.
(Thanks to Lightning on Disqus for this)
Yes, @Kelpalots, they do

@KnowNicotine Vaping, whether done by a teen human or adult, has been shown to be practically harmless. While crying "Save The Children" they banned e-cigs, but not tobacco, in San Francisco recently. Saving the teens from the awful vape. Yeah. They also claim adults do not like flavors. Sure.

@KnowNicotine Not happy with this teaser.
It's about, and labelled as, the "teen vaping 'epidemic'".
I'd rather my teen vape than smoke and get disease.
This is not why I donated. This 'teen epidemic' is their excuse to ban vaping.
"Save The Children!" they cry. When it's really about taxes.

@Kpascuch My old home town has a lot to learn.
First came the flavor ban, now an outright ban on all e-cigs.
I can't believe at this stage of the game we're going backwards.
After all the progress we've made.
My DOCTOR even, has finally decided she approves of VAPING as she can see results https://t.co/OUcWPEelfn

@Kpascuch Sad.
I was just in Oakland, California.
They couldn't sell me vape liquid.
Of course, the tobacco was readily available.
As an ex-smoker I find that insulting. https://t.co/UAvfpOmJYO
