    This is gonna be so interesting. There's a couple of my future husband's on that list.

    I'm very curious about what will come out of this, if anything? Watch how it will hardly be mentioned in the Aust press.

    A summary of the key points at this summit.

    "Louise Ross, NHS Stop Smoking Service

    Stop smoking success rates increased 20% when e-cigarettes were introduced into the process. Tweet this quote!

    Clive Bates

    Too much regulation will take perfectly good products off the market. Tweet this quote!

    The tobacco products directive is a wretched piece of legislation, full of rubbish. Tweet this quote!

    Public Health England

    We can’t ban e-cigs on the basis they look like cigarettes. Tweet this quote!

    Sending people outside to vape could actually increase children’s exposure to vaping. Tweet this quote!

    Scale of harm with e-cigs is much, much smaller, including 2nd hand exposure. Tweet this quote!

    Dr Farsalinos Konstantinos

    The most important toxins in cigarette smoke are missing – those that remain are orders of magnitude lower.

    Risk reduction of ecigs is at least 95%, and probably 99%. Tweet this quote!

    Professor Hajek

    No serious adverse effects with e-cigs have been found in any study. Tweet this quote!

    Saying e-cigs are 95% safer is not a medical claim, it is a truth. Tweet this quote!

    Professor Bauld

    E-cig gateway theories are just that – theories. Tweet this quote!

    Professor West

    At a very conservative estimate, ecigs have saved at least 10,000 lives. Tweet this quote!"

    I'd like to keep this one active, I've watched some of the video's, there are some excellent presentations some may be long winded, but in general very informative.

    Here's one from Clive Bates. http://vaping.com/ecigsummit2014/clive-bates

    I watched a couple, interesting and yes a bit long winded, old school uni lecture style. The depth of interest is fine, I just don't really care much beyond my right, and that of others, to choose to vape.

    Gawd I must be long winded because I didn't think they were long winded just full of vital information. I loved the way Farsalinos told off the American heart foundation bloke.
