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..
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.

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).

"Maybe next year they could hear from a group of people who were unable to quit [#smoking] using traditional methods, but have succeeded by #vaping?" @JohnOyston

Though I disagreed with a variety of points in the bullet list of 'points of agreement', this article has a lot of sensible suggestions.
This one jumped out at me though, as .. impractical, given the #COI created by #BigPharma funding ..
.. as well as the ideological opposition of many #ANTZ in #TobaccoControl).

Do #HealthWarnings on #cigarette sticks dissuade #smokers and #NonSmokers? A focus group and interview study of #Australian university students.

Being a former #smoker from #Australia I found it rather odd the researchers asking questions about #GraphicWarnings and their effect, of a group that included NON #smokers.
As time has gone by (not necessarily in this order):
- #Tobacco advertising was banned long ago.
- #Smoking bans put #smokers outside, where they were more obvious to people walking past the #SmokeFree buildings.
- #GraphicWarnings were included on cigarette packs.

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/

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.
