    From article: Professor Simon Chapman,
    "the most likely outcome for somebody who is a cigarette smoker and who starts using e-cigarettes is that they use both, they continue smoking, they reduce their smoking a little bit," he said."
    What evidence is he talking about? Everything I've read says exactly the opposite. Even the statement "they reduce their smoking a little bit" is contrary to the studies I've seen.

    So his argument is that because e-cigs aren't 100% effective they are a health risk. Talk about nonsensical.

    But go Gerry Stimson!!

    Was SC's statement founded on a study he did? I think not. Gasbagging as usual
    Can he even point to a recent study that someone else did the WORK on that is relevant to Australia? Again, I think not.
    Jeeze, what on earth does he do with his tax payer funded time?

    The "evidence" SC was talking about could be this: http://www.ash.org.uk/files/documents/ASH_891.pdf

    I must admit, if true, those numbers are surprising. But even so, Chapman's assertion that because two thirds of people don't quit the cigs entirely so therefore ecigs should be restricted is a complete non sequitur.
