    The reactions to the WHO announcement seem to contain more intelligent assumptions than from what I heard from the WHO spokesman.

    Video reaction from American Council on Science and Health. Anybody copping grief from friends/family over news flashes on WHO's BS should show them this

    No worries. I've copped a bit of grief from my wife after a 'news flash' on The Feed, literally a 20 second segment and its pretty hard to return a 20 second response that doesn't sound like a blathering tinfoiler.

    spot on, tobacco companions twitching, pharmas twitching, governments crying into their beers because of lost tax.

    Anyone here knows that its not just the addiction to nicotine that is the problem! The last long term studies of NRT concluded that addiction to SMOKING (not just using nicotine, I know people who are addicted to legal NRT) should be considered a chronic disorder (not just the physical addiction to nicotine).

    SMOKING is usually habitual that most people will want to break a short time after developing the habit but are then unable to because they are then physically addicted to nicotine. It then becomes a long term habit, that most people seem to forget is more addictive than heroine.

    Scientists say there is not enough evidence either way. Medically trained Psychiatrists are the ones who should be having the major input on this, as all of us on Aussie vapes that have given up smoking for vaping know that this IS a viable replacement therapy, with or without nicotine (THAT WE CAN ALL BUY LEGALLY FROM ANY PHARMACY ANYTIME WITHOUT QUESTION).

    Yes we need regulation, but information is more important. Ecigs should not be thought of as a new problem. Education without prejudice is the key.

    We all need to work on getting the message out there about how this disruptive technology has changed our lives.
    Health tick
    Finances tick
    Psychological and social wellbeing tick

    One thing which seems counterproductive which I've been reading this evening is personally attacking those who don't agree. It looks awful. Try to stay above it.
