Do #HealthWarnings on #cigarette sticks dissuade #smokers and #NonSmokers? A focus group and interview study of #Australian university students.

Being a former #smoker from #Australia I found it rather odd the researchers asking questions about #GraphicWarnings and their effect, of a group that included NON #smokers.
As time has gone by (not necessarily in this order):
- #Tobacco advertising was banned long ago.
- #Smoking bans put #smokers outside, where they were more obvious to people walking past the #SmokeFree buildings.
- #GraphicWarnings were included on cigarette packs.

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.

@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.

After all the sensational stories, #smokers of #America need assurance that it is safer to #vape.
Please implement something like described in "#THR messages targeted to smokers".
(And please excuse the parts about #GraphicWarnings & the British accent narration, I had very little budget & made it for an international audience.)
Of course, a message for #American #smokers would feature different messages. Here are some messages suitable for inclusion as inserts in #cigarette packs. 1/

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.

This opinion piece by a few Ozzies is so full of contorted thinking & debunked logic it is worthy of a @Clive_Bates 13K word smack-down, but I expect he's busy on other things so I'll post some brief points.

"Maternal smoking and intrauterine exposure to tobacco smoke and nicotine have been linked.."
Nicely snuck #nicotine in there. Onya!
If U don't understand that CO and tar are largest source of harm from #tobacco #SMOKE then perhaps U should stay in the shallow end of the pool.
"These devices still deliver nicotine .."
You say that like it's a bad thing.
The evidence to support that needs to be balanced by evidence of healthful effects re Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, Dementia, ADHD, Schizophrenia..

Re: #FDA Compliance Policy Mod for Certain #Tobacco products.

The real timeline here starts with 2010 when @FDATobacco was denied authority to regulate #vaping as a drug/device. That's we knew for certain that these products would be regulated. . .
. . . under the TCA. But now, after YEARS of failing to provide meaningful guidance to industry regarding PMTA and/or streamlining the process for low-risk tobacco and #nicotine products, @FDATobacco is claiming . . .
. . .that a sudden spike in youth trying #vaping in 2017-2018 is responsible for derailing their efforts to ensure access to safer tobacco/nicotine products.

Moreover. . .

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% 📉

This is EXTREMELY concerning. New research centre on Indigenous smoking is being funded by the tobacco industry.

Yes, you read that right: *funded by the tobacco industry*

medianet.com.au/releases/16667…

(Thread)
It was all smiles and accolades at the launch, but everyone seems to be glossing over the centre’s funding source and the huge ethical problems that raises.

The centre is being funded by The Foundation for a Smoke-Free World. Here’s their President, Derek Yach, talking about the new research centre. vimeo.com/285901659
