(THREAD /1) #TobaccoIndustry has disingenuously dumped money into the Black community to permeate our culture with their branding and free addictive menthol cigarettes because they KNEW young Black men were trendsetters. This ultimately poisoned our communities, and now
/2 tobacco-related diseases now being the #1 cause of death of Black Americans. The death and disease inflicted on the Black Community by #BigTobacco is one reason why saying #BlackLivesMatter and #BlackHealthMatters is necessary. #BigTobacco harms and kills Black lives.
/3 And the FDA has had the ability to stop this. It’s beyond time they take action. I am happy to hear that long-time menthol leader @AATCLC and @ASH were suing the FDA to do what they should have done a long time ago and #BanMenthol.shar.es/ab1fbi

@evanderburg when you start to unpeel the public relations veneer from well-financed mainstream media campaign to impose #5G you will see there is PLENTY to worry about — & independent experts who actually know something are in sharp disagreement with #BigWireless

this .@CNN story claim:
@evanderburg @CNN

hereby challenge .@CNN to report #5Gfact: contrary to this blizzard of bland blanket corporate assurances, #BigWireless forced to admit to U.S. Senate committee hearing they aware of ***NO INDEPENDENT SCIENTIFIC STUDIES OVER #5G HAZARDS***

#MediaLiteracy
@evanderburg @CNN blumenthal.senate.gov/newsroom/press…

#BigTelecom, when actually on the griddle and presumably under oath, reluctantly admits industry is #FlyingBlind regarding human health effects.... they suspect but don’t want to know of the hazards.... #cancer #autism

Cellphone tower set on fire in Saint-Henri

yo .⁦@CBCMontreal⁩ .⁦@CBCAlerts

your story 👇 talks of “False narratives around #5G technology...” so by all means let’s deal with #5Gfacts & not mindlessly conflate with #C19

#5Gfact

***no independent scientific studies of #5G safety have ever been conducted — #fact wireless industry reps themselves have admitted.***

this MUST be brought to public attention!!!

(it certainly has been kept quiet so far.... 🤔 yo #cdnmedia! )

#5Gfact

any claims of #5G safety by #BigTelecom are cynical PR distraction ploy from core threats to human health (which #BigWireless, #lobbyists & servile ‘regulator’ .@GovCanHealth — both #PHAC & #HealthCanada — refuse to acknowledge)

1/8 And a few more points for @GovWhitmer, a thread...

Teen use of vaping products, as reported by @US_FDA was overwhelmingly because of "curiosity" rather than flavors as you keep trying to claim, which is data from the 2019 NYTS fda.gov/tobacco-produc… with most using Juul
2/8 This leads directly into point number two, from looking at FDA sales/inspection data, it is, again overwhelmingly not vape shops that are selling to teens, this data can be seen here yes-i-vape.com/post/fda-compl… out of all sales to underage in MI only 13 (2.22% were at vape shops)
3/8
MICHIGAN

Type of store product was sold in:

Vape shop: 13 (2.22%)

@RCPLondon

On behalf of those of us Americans who are sane, I apologize for my country's "leaders" nonsense and disrespect. You see, the American government is not good at admitting wrongdoing, and they REALLY don't like to be proven wrong. Our @Surgeon_General is not a fan of
REAL science. Only garbage science that fits his narrative. The Americans with common sense greatly appreciate all the hard work you've done to research ecigs and their health benefits. Hopefully, America will #QuitLying and quit trying to kill its
Smokers and former smokers. You see, our government profits from tobacco sales, and from cancer and other illnesses caused by smoking. Vaping has brought #BigTobacco to its knees, and the American govt is panicking because it's losing money.

Dear @realDonaldTrump , @POTUS @FLOTUS @WhiteHouse @SecAzar
Looks like I am not the only one that no longer wants to vote for #Trump in 2020 if he goes through with the #EjuiceBan.
washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/bannin…
@realDonaldTrump @POTUS @FLOTUS @WhiteHouse @SecAzar Also- It's important to note that the deaths and most likely ALL of the illness related to #vaping were from blackmarket #THC juice, not commercially sold juice. I have smokers bronchitis (still) if anyone were to get sick from this stuff, it would be me. Not a young person.
@realDonaldTrump @POTUS @FLOTUS @WhiteHouse @SecAzar Here is a screen shot from one of the most popular #ejuice sellers online. It is the flavor profiles offered. Do you see #Tobacco flavor?
Nope, it is in there under #menthol flavors but only 6% of #vapers in a survey liked Tobacco flavor compared to #dessert and fruit flavors.

Why is Trump banning flavored #ecigs when other developed first world countries are embracing them and even placing #vape shops inside hospitals (UK)?

What motive does the USA have to not embrace #vaping despite the fact that #vapingsaveslives ? /1
In this country there is a profit motive in healthcare. Those profits are largely made in the insurance & pharmaceutical sector. All current available and FDA approved smoking cessation products are pharmaceuticals manufactured. 2/
When #vaping showed up. It was a small business grass roots industry with a single mission to provide tobacco harm reduction solutions to smokers and to disrupt the scourge that #BigTobacco has left on our country. 3/

A fisking of the opinion piece by Michelle Jongenelis (from the doghouse of @DrOliviaDoll1) in Fairfax media. No public link known (it appeared in a variety of regional newspapers around #Australia).
"THE recent death of a US man who contracted a serious lung disease after taking up #vaping comes as no surprise to many #PublicHealth advocates."
No mention of #BlackMarket, unregulated #cannabinoids, despite 6 US regions involved, explicitly mentioning it.
"Contrary to the messages being disseminated by the vaping industry (an industry now largely owned by #BigTobacco), .."
Wrong! Neither the majority of companies, nor vape sales, involve products ownership by the #TobaccoIndustry.

To offset "lost" #tobacco tax profits, the US govt wants to impose a tax on people who quit #smoking. The #Vape industry must stop trying to appease our fundamentalist enemy and join consumers in fighting this atrocity
reuters.com/article/us-usa…
I want to make one thing crystal clear: I will not pay the government a fine for quitting #smoking. If this predatory tax is enacted I expect the US #vaping industry to help consumers circumvent the theft and supply the tax-free extralegal free market by any means available
#BigTobacco stocks spiked against a sluggish market because of the announcement that the US government will impose punitive taxation against people who quit or never start #smoking thanks to the #harmless and effective #vaping alternative:
$PM +2.1% 📈
$MO +1.2% 📈
DJI +0.7% 📉
