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).

Important corrections on the bullet list seen in this tweet.
"• no tested and approved e-cigarette products are available"
True, and given the 'defined dose' requirement for 'medical devices' it's likely to stay that way.
Ppl approving such things need to get comfortable with the concept of 'self titration' - ..

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..

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.

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, ..

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.
