    Heart Foundation Lies, exaggerates and conflates e-cigs with tobacco using children

    What a lovely video, see how they care for smoker's health in this lovely harm reduction backwater of a country of ours

    There are very few things in life that make me want to punch a computer screen .... this is one of them .... scaremongering emotional bias and misrepresentation of the lowest kind ..... I am actually struggling to type without swearing ... but I want to ... shameful that a so-called "health organisation" can take effective harm minimisation and debase it in a replay of the "Children Overboard" fiasco .... if Govt is so worried about Big Tobacco making a comeback , then why dont they fight Big Tobacco's efforts to control the e-cig market , rather than just use them as leverage to attack the actual minimisation itself ... Effing Furious at this !

    Hmm more letter writing to my local member. Probably useless but the heart foundation carries clout. Pity it receives funding from big pharma. Think the bear might be waking up. I need vaping.

    We should all send our "how I quit smoking using ecigarettes" stories to them. After all we have reduced our risk of heart disease by quitting.

    Yep.

    And I still haven't forgiven them for taking bribes from junk food corporations in exchange for allowing them to put their ridiculous Tick for Heart Healthy food on their toxic products.

    Yeah, they really care about the health of Australians.

    Yep, I'm going to. I've thus far followed the don't poke the sleeping bear philosophy but....we're gonna lose vaping before we got it and we all know how much we and the general smoking public could benefit from vaping. I've just got to the point where I can't do nothing.

    It would be more grammatically correct to say arrrrgh I've got to do something!

    It is a world wide attack and frenzy because of money, again.

    The thing is, most people cherish money before most things.

    Look about you and at your so called friends. If there is a dollar in it most will screw you.

    Welp maybe .. if petty bitching like clones and dylactle is put away for a while (not forever) to show unity (formal or not) ... something can probably be done about it .. Your stories being sent to anyone who listens is one of the strongest tools you have if you want to do something about it now if you have the inclination
