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).

Is vaping bad for you? A cardiothoracic surgeon gives her expert opinion.
A twitter thread on #vaping in #Australia, in a news report featuring @drnikkistamp.
Report "debate rages on about whether [#eCigarette are] actually a safer alternative to regular #cigarettes"
Yes, in much the same way that debate rages as to whether #vaccines cause autism, or whether the Earth is flat.
Sans the carbon monoxide & tar of #smoking, ..
.. it'd be pretty extraordinary if they were anything less than /much/ less harmful.

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/

.@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. #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.

As of 8/27, 215 possible cases of severe respiratory disease associated w/ use of #ecigarette products have been reported from 25 states. @CDCgov and @US_FDA are working closely with state & local health officials to investigate.
.@CDCgov is helping states investigate whether the respiratory illnesses may be linked to specific devices, ingredients or contaminants in the devices, or substances associated with #ecigarette product use.
While some cases are similar and appear to be linked to #ecigarette product use, more information is needed to determine what is causing the respiratory illnesses. In many cases, patients have also acknowledged recent use of THC or CBD-containing e-cigarette products.
