1) Just a reminder @WHO @FCTCofficial that the roof you live under is held up by pillars YOU are responsible to uphold.

If you ignore one it could bring the whole thing down.

Failing to acknowledge Article 1(d) and #harmreduction #tobaccoharmreduction is a failure of ideology.
2) That failure is not only apparent after the invention of #vape #vaping technologies but has been glaring at you and everyone that has been watching since 2006.

"The Fourth Pillar of the FCTC: Harm Reduction and the International Human Right to Health"…
3) Your roof is falling down on your head.

You fail to ask the question, "Why do people use nicotine?"

Instead you dehumanize them. Demonize them. You "other" them.

Why are 70% of cigarettes smoked, smoked by the #neurodiverse?

Why do you attack #safernicotine options?

1/ Today, a friend messaged a chatroom we're in, "I'm sorry I was there yesterday". They corrected themself a moment later, they had meant to say "wasn't", but...

I'm sorry that I had to be there yesterday.
2/ I'm sorry that our elected representatives made violently clearing encampments an official policy goal on June 8th and kicked the decision on how to implement that goal over to @TorontoPolice

I'm sorry that our housed neighbours have shown a willingness in the past to turn...
3/ a blind eye to the violence the @cityoftoronto enacts against our communities on a regular basis. Not just the unhoused community, but our friends and neighbours in Black and Indigenous communities, in LGBTQ+ communities, in immigrant communities.

In condemning the "illegal ruling" by Poland's constitutional court to ban #abortion, @MEugeniaRPalop says such criminalisation is "a violation of #WomensRights."

"It is part of an international, far-right conservative objective: to destroy gender equality."

"Women have the right to decide over their own bodies - a #HumanRight that cannot be violated," says @nvillumsen.

"In spite of mass street protests, by pushing through the #abortion ban with the help of illegitimate judges, the Polish government has violated EU #RuleOfLaw."
Describing Poland's #abortionban as "illegal & regressive", @deppcppeguengl's Sandra Pereira says it "goes against the dignity of women & their reproductive health rights."

"This ban also hits the most disadvantaged women in our society the hardest."

Abortion & contraception, like puberty blockers, aren't "permanent", Abigail. I admire and respect your coming out, but this is entirely wrong. /1
Abigail Thorn, @PhilosophyTube, mis-spoke when she asserted "abortion is permanent". Nope.

A child who gets an abortion can get pregnant again. Abortion makes no permanent changes to a child's body, no more than contraception or puberty blockers do. /2 From Abigail Thorn's coming-out post "In England and Wa
Pregnancy is life-threatening & irreversible for a child - pregnancy is one of the leading causes of death for teenage girls worldwide.

Abortion, like contraception & puberty-blockers, is essential #healthcare for any child who needs it, & also a #humanright. /3

Everyone who says "#BoThSiDeS" can shove that phrase right up their backside, because of the @GOP using the turocharged capitalist equivalent to #warlordism in #congress and #senate, holding the entire nation as hostages for their reactionary bullshit!

And this "political #instability" and "#political uncertainty" is making the #USA a worse place to invest, conduct business in or with and to have to deal with in general.
Because Ghouls like #McCornell are just being #assholes for the sake of doing so and not facing #accountability for it!

What Skerrit is saying in regard to not bringing #tobacco under the prescription model is complete rubbish. The @TGAgovau site explicitly mentions novel #nicotine products - #SLT & #HTP.
Huh.. @hollieahughes just said they're due to report by /18th/ December. I'd thought it was the 1st of December.
Emily Banks 'sum total of world experience' .. yeah, with some heavy #CherryPicking.
The Oz #ANTZ /all/ seem to be loving 'the #GatewayEffect' which is a 'real thing'.. 🙄

The International Court of Justice of the Amsterdam District Court concluded that Polish courts are no longer independent and asked the @EUCourtPress about the consequences for the #EuropeanArrestWarrant regime.
Long🧵with my assessment ⬇️
1/ This is not the first time a national court has doubts as to whether suspects/convicts should be surrendered. For quite some time national courts denied surrender on various human rights grounds, in contravention of the black letter law of the Framework Decision on the #EAW.
2/ 🇬🇧 & 🇩🇪courts demanded assurances in relation to the detention conditions in certain issuing MSs already since 2013. They refused surrender in cases where they were not satisfied with the guarantees provided.
See footnote 29 in:…

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.

why i am no longer publishing (my own) #research in #academic journals - a (long) thread 1/38

#AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter #academicpublishing #academicjournals #peerreview #ecrchat #OpenScience #publicationbias

(some references at the end of the thread)
(i still have a few collaborative papers to write and these will be published properly for the benefit of my co-authors)

i will soon publish a paper on a pre-print server, with no intention of submitting to an academic journal. my reasons for this are manifold 2/38
1. #academia is inherently corrupt & the publication model facilitates this:
- unpaid labour (editors, peer-reviewers,& authors [ok, they do get paid by the uni which oft = public funds yet journals privately profit & we see none of this unlike other forms of publishing]) 3/38

"Ppl who use food assistance...say they experience stigma, shame and hopelessness...seeking food traumatic, stressful and detrimental to one's health & wellbeing' - @ChristinaPolla8 @DrSueBooth "Food Insecurity & Hunger in Rich Countries' -…
'The Australian government is failing to fulfil its legal and moral obligation to guarantee the #humanright to #adequatefood for at least 1.2 mn people'. In a country that boasts about being #foodsecure & 'feeding 60 mn people', this is an indictment
The human right to adequate food is universal - everyone has it, regardless of who they are or how much money they have - and it is inalienable - it can't be forfeited or surrendered. Poverty is no reason for a person or group not to have access to adequate food at all times

Has little challenge as do corrupt politicians as long as #FreeSpeech is suppressed. The #NumberOne #HumanRight that made #AmericaGreat. The principle upon which the internet was made to acquire knowledge and exchange ideas. Let’s reflect on that #MothersDay

1/In #Iran, due to intentional mismanagement& disinformation by CORRUPT Islamic system, #Iranian people even medical staff in #Hospitals have NO access to medical protective equipment/nationwide shortage
@POTUS @VP @seanhannity @marklevinshow @JudicialWatch @NikkiHaley @FoxNews

1.Never know about their underlying disease/lack of screening tests& poverty
2.are unemployed

That’s why the management of #Crisis in the US is totally different from poor states.
Except for elderly& those w/underlying disease who must stay at home, others should be weaponized w/mask…at work place.

There are 258 million migrants around the world. Some work in banks, others for the #NHS, some care for their elderly parents and others moved to guarantee a better future for their children. No matter why they moved, all have the right to access #healthcare. Image
Yet this basic #humanright is under threat. Around Europe, some of the most vulnerable #migrants are being excluded from healthcare: children, pregnant women, and homeless people. #MigrantsDay Image
Governments must step up and guarantee no one is excluded – especially migrants in vulnerable circumstances.
#Healthcare is a right, no matter what passport you hold.

In late-August of 2010, my dear first-cousin was diagnosed with inoperable, non-curable, small-cell lung #cancer. He and I were raised like #siblings and cared for one another as brother and sister, a very close-knit family.
My #cousin was an amazing man, husband, and father to twin boys; who were only 14 when he died in September 2017. He died at his home, surrounded by his family and friends…just how he’d wished.
Of course, he only had these wishes after his experiences spending extended periods of time in clinics, hospitals, and laboratories. Blood draws, lung scans, injections, medications, #chemotherapy, hospitalizations, emergency room visits from all the awful side-effects of his...

This article, written by a former president of the MA Taxpayers Foundation, touches upon many of the crucial and bipartisan steps we've taken in our Commonwealth to control ballooning #HealthcareCosts.

#MApoli #Healthcare…
“The Legislature deserves much credit as well ... the House and Senate passed four bills addressing health costs: a cost containment bill in 2008, a small business relief bill in 2010, municipal health reform in 2011, and comprehensive cost control legislation in 2012.”

However, we have more work to do to ensure that everyone in the Commonwealth has access to quality, #AffordableHealthcare. Healthcare should be a basic #HumanRight, not a privilege just for those who can afford it!
