Fascinating (but not surprising) that MOST #ANTZ call out from their ECHO (Echo echo) chambers claiming to know what ALL #vape 'fans' think. So here's a tweet thread from a persons who #vapes and is a fan of #TobaccoHarmReduction, to clarify what ONE person in that group thinks.. Image
I'm completely in favor of 'phasing out' combustible #cigarettes. #THR products like #vape, #snus & #HTP could do that in a decade or so if the moron #ANTZ (like Ruth) had not demonized #nicotine & currently .. 'fight' against alternative nicotine products.
But when an #ANTZ says 'phasing out', my auto-correct inserts 'prohibition', and I definitely don't support that. It is a #HumanRight for people to choose to consume drugs, and the role of (ACTUAL) #PublicHealth ppl should be to encourage them to do so in the safest way possible.

Thread: I am seeing a disturbing trend on the college campus I work on: young people smoking cigarettes. Now, the realist in me says that these young people are experimenting, especially since they are so far removed from parent’s oversight. But why with cigarettes? We have so
Much evidence that cigarettes are harmful to your health. The students I see smoking surely aren’t of age to smoke, especially as college freshmen, with the age being 21. I know older students aren’t straw purchasing them for the younger students, as I witnessed a group of
Freshmen boys go into a c-store and come out with a pack or Marlboro reds; the oldest boy couldn’t have been over 19, which is 2 years below the legal age for tobacco usage in NYS, and nationwide. It’s obvious they were able to get a fake ID good enough to fool the poor clerk

erj.ersjournals.com/content/early/… Key messages for a rational approach to vaping and e-cigarettes
1) People #smoke #tobacco because of #nicotine addiction, but the major harms come not from the nicotine but from toxic substances in the smoke.
2) #Pharmacotherapy (e.g. dual #NRT or #varenicline) combined with psychological support should be made available to all #smokers to help them to quit and should be considered as the first line approach.

Following a long line of articles from #TobaccoControl types who completely fail to 'get' #TobaccoHarmReduction, @LauraRossouw chimes in to prove she can misunderstand it up with the 'best'.
So let's look at a brief overview of the article..
Firstly, the title itself. Not only do #THR advocates support (sensible) regulation on #eCigarettes / #vaping, but there are, in most countries, a variety of legacy consumer protections that apply to them (e.g. standards for electrical goods or standards for labeling poisons).

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.

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..
