    Not as much about ecigs as Neil wanting to say how dangerous he believes them to be based on the recent ACCC ruling. Can't seem to get past the formaldehyde thing.

    I managed to get on for a short time, but he wasn't interested in talking harm reduction....

    Keeps saying that the ACCC ruling is proof that ecigs are dangerous, despite the rep from the ACCC saying several times that they are not a health department and that that is not their concern.

    Just getting angrier listening to him now (in between the massive blocks of ads).

    ACCC is for protecting consumer rights nothing more. This includes misleading claims, practices and declining returns.

    To say ecigs or vaping is harmless that's misleading hence why they stepped in.
    If you only state the facts no tar and free from the 6000+ chemicals found in tobacco cigs should be OK.

    Gotta be real careful with that last bit of 'free from..) - that is the exact technically that the ACCC got them on.

    Better to say exactly what it doesn't have (and make sure it doesn't have it!) If you want to make any claims at all.

    Does that means the only safe thing to claim is No tar?

    I think it would be great to get vaping as a topic on the TV show Insight on SBS with Jenny Brockie. Every week they have a topic and there are a range of opinions from experts, people who are for and against, everyday people (you guys, although some of you actually are experts). So viewers get an overview. I don't know how you get to lobby SBS for this. But i think its time has come.
