    VicHealth Tobacco Harm Reduction Forum proceedings

    The forum was last year, but the proceedings have just recently gone up. It is a long read, but some positives in there

    I haven't made it through it yet, I read slower than I used to.

    From the proceedings...

    Harm reduction should not distract from existing tobacco control measures. Although there may be a place for a tobacco harm reduction approach in Australia, it should not be at the expense of existing tobacco control strategies that are known to be effective in reducing population prevalence, including taxation, mass media communication, cessation services, smoke-free environments and advertising bans.
    Basically this means harm reduction should not interfere with our ability to continue getting funds and put at risk the survival of the Tobacco Control Industry.

    Borland's speech is good. But I get the impression they mostly decided it is all too confusing and no consensus could be reached

    Trying to make sense of Gartner ATM, I'm anything but an accountant or treasurer type

    Haven't read it yet, but my future brother in law's father who is now retired worked at Philip Morris in management and told my future brother in law, who then told me that ... Philip Morris was investing heavily in ecig research, I cant remember if it was 7 mill or 7 bill .... that was about 3 or 4 years ago.
