    Penny Egan spreading FUD in the Tasmanian Media

    Story here: Electronic cigarettes lure young to take up habit, says anti-cancer chief | The Mercury

    Apparently ecigs with nicotine in them are illegal everywhere in Australia.

    Penny Egan seems wrong about everything else she said so I don't know if she is correct about how legal nicotine is in Australia.

    so Penny has a concern for unsubstantiated claims, yet makes these unsubstantiated claims herself;

    1) She said that while there were anecdotal claims the substitute cigarettes helped, there were also reports of increasing nicotine addiction, as people used e-cigarettes to indulge in what they thought was a safe way to take up smoking.

    2)“We think it’s normalising smoking, particularly with young people,” Mrs Egan said

    And then there is the common claim of total ignorance of available facts;

    3) “There’s an absolute lack of evidence it stops people from smoking.”

    Good on you Penny, great to see you striving in anyway you can to reduce the incidence of preventable cancer
    NOT!

    Remember when the only trolls you had to deal with were under a bridge, and trying to eat your goats?
