    Simeon Chimpan to be interviewed on Electronic cigarettes at 3pm

    Drive with Richard Glover | 702 ABC Sydney | Australian Broadcasting Corporation


    Usualy misleading statements will be made.

    Ecigs normalise tobacco smoking
    Teen usage of ecigs has doubled, with no mention that only 3% of the teens that has tried an ecig, had actually tried used an ecig in the last 30 days
    Ecigs are a gateway to tobacco smoking
    Misrepresentation of ecigs, that being ALL ecigs look like tobacco cigarettes, conflating all ecig devices as all the same
    Electronic cigarettes only show 7% quit rate which suggests people are dual using tobacco and ecigs, with no mention that most successful ex-smoking vapers quit using non-cigalike ecigs.
    Nicotine is not a benign substance, backed up by a whole bunch of cell studies that don't actually prove anything about the toxicity of nicotine
    Big Tobacco companies are using ecigs to hook new generations and keep their customers smoking

    Usualy misleading statements will be made.

    Ecigs normalise tobacco smoking - As predicted

    Teen usage of ecigs has doubled, with no mention that only 3% of the teens that has tried an ecig, had actually tried used an ecig in the last 30 days - Probably wasnt enough time to mention this

    Ecigs are a gateway to tobacco smoking - As predicted

    Misrepresentation of ecigs, that being ALL ecigs look like tobacco cigarettes, conflating all ecig devices as all the same - As predicted

    Electronic cigarettes only show 7% quit rate which suggests people are dual using tobacco and ecigs, with no mention that most successful ex-smoking vapers quit using non-cigalike ecigs. - As predicted

    Nicotine is not a benign substance, backed up by a whole bunch of cell studies that don't actually prove anything about the toxicity of nicotine
    Big Tobacco companies are using ecigs to hook new generations and keep their customers smoking - As predicted

    I thought that James Valentine was positive and made a lot of sense and put some good points to chappy.

    I'd enquire if there was a link to the relevant segment, but I'm tired of washing bullshit out of my ears.
