    lol!

    Wheat is safe to eat, but it's not safe to inhale wheat dust...PG could be the same. And this guy is supposed to be a scientist.

    He didn't even know exactly what the carrier in ecigs was.

    Actually he was very right about the wheat dust lol ... but the POLYpropylene Glycol had me a little worried Amazing what a difference four little letters can make ...One is a food safe ingredient used widely in just about everything as a humectant , the other is an irritant , and explosive in vapour form , and is an ester used in plastic manufacture and polyurethanes ( yum yum )

    Actually its rare you see Dr Karl a bit nervous , and I think he was answering that ? Possibly because he wanted to say things that might get him in some trouble with his "peers"? Just a theory

    A few months ago Dr Karl was very outspoken against ecigs on tripleJ. He seems to have calmed down a bit now.

    A deliberate attempt to associate vapes with a dangerous chemical, or just a memory slip?

    I used to think Dr Carl was OK a few years ago. But hes just a knob like the rest of them.

    He's lost what little credibility he had now that hes on the box selling Fuhrer Tony's we-will-work-you-till-you-drop-peasants plan

    I agree FM. He was cockily confident in all his answers up to the ecig question. At which point he did sound a bit nervous, and obviously didn't know exactly what the ecig ingredient was.

    I clearly remember him sounding supremely confident in his anti-ecigs stance last time he spoke on the subject on tripleJ.

    Something happened between then and now. Either he's realised the science is being warped by the anti-tobacco lobby, or...a bit of dementia?
