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.

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

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).

The Victorian Government is the latest stakeholder to express concern about vaping, saying e-liquids are becoming increasingly more dangerous.
A torrent of #FUD on..
#vape #vaping #eLiquid #nicotine in #Victoria #Australia
ajp.com.au/news/e-liquid-…
This title is deceptive in that it mentions #eLiquid but then goes on to discuss the components (concentrated #nicotine) used to MAKE e-liquid.
In a regulated, legal market there'd be no need for the latter to be in the homes of #Australians who want to #QuitSmoking via #vaping.
"Minister for Health .@JennyMikakos released data from the Victorian Poisons Information Centre that shows concentrations of #nicotine are getting stronger and the number of child poisonings from e-liquids are increasing."
Caps on maximum strength (in a regulated, legal market).

Subsequent to a COAG (coag.gov.au) meeting, the state government of Victoria is doubling down on #nicotine #vaping.
Some quotes from @VicHealth in "#ElectronicCigarettes containing #nicotine" (www2.health.vic.gov.au/public-health/…)

"The Poisons Code lists #nicotine (for human use when it is a Schedule 7 poison) as a substance that is not for general sale by retail. ..
.. This decision was made on the basis that #nicotine for human use is a dangerous poison, and electronic cigarettes have not been assessed for safety, quality or efficacy."

So .. obviously #NRT has been assessed. #Cigarettes? Oh, my bad - they're EXEMPT from the SUSMP!

A lot of chatter about #ecigarettes today after FM Nirmala Sitharaman's press briefing.

However, most of the people have no idea about #ecigarettes. Here's a lengthy thread about what ecigarettes are and how do they affect India.
Today, the Indian Cabinet approved Promulgation of the Prohibition of Electronic Cigarettes Ordinance. Basically, they want to ban #ecigarettes. A lot of people are celebrating the ban without even knowing what ecigarettes are. So what are they? Let's educate ourselves.
An #ecigarette is actually a vaporizer which simulates smoking without any actual burning or smoke. The popular term for using it is known as 'vaping'. The device itself has 3 important parts, the battery, vaporizer and tank/cartridge which holds the vape liquid.

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/

As of 9/6, more than 25 states have reported possible cases of lung illnesses associated with use of #ecigarette products (e.g., devices, liquids, refill pods, and cartridges). At least two deaths have been reported to CDC. bit.ly/2HQCQcl #vaping Image
.@CDCgov knows that people are concerned about pulmonary disease among those who use #ecigarettes. We are keeping the families of those affected in our thoughts & are working with @US_FDA & state partners to find out what is making people sick. #vaping
.@CDCgov is aware that some laboratories have identified Vitamin E acetate in product samples used by patients with #ecigarette associated lung illness, but at this time, no one device, product or substance has been linked to all cases. bit.ly/2HQCQcl #vaping

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.
