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'.. 🙄

@SimonChapman6 and @AlexWodak were interviewed on #vaping on @abcadelaide this afternoon

Certain misinformation provided during the interview needs to be corrected

'The 95% safer figure is a factoid based on opinion'

WRONG. This is based on comprehensive reviews by @RCPLondon and @PHE_uk. It is consistent with the substantial reduction in toxins, the reduced biomarkers and improved health in smokers who switch

'Long-term risk. It took 40 years to find out the effects of smoking'

Science has come a long way since then. Smoke contains >7000 chemicals, vapour <300. Chemicals in vapour are mostly <1% concentration in smoke. @RCPLondon says the long-term risk is <5% risk of smoking.

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).

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!

Mercenaries have been hired to exploit Kenya's natural resources (wildlife, oil and minerals) for economic gain. The reasons go back many years, but there is one recent salient element that reflects all.

During 2003, against the backdrop of the turmoil and scandal within the Kenyan Wildlife Services (KWS), secret and private conversations were being held on how to manipulate this turmoil to take control of Kenya's natural resources (wildlife and minerals) for economic gain.(DM)
The major protagonists at these shadowy and clandestine meetings were Ian Craig of Kenya's Lewa Conservancy and David Walker - owner and director of the world's most notorious mercenary organisation Saladin Security.
