about vaping-related lung injuries

Jan. 2020, Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs releases:

 

“Miscommunication about the causes of the US outbreak of lung diseases in vapers by public health authorities and the media”.

EVERY health professional who reads this will have full comprehension on the truth about what is causing vaping related lung injuries, how the CDC has deceived the public about it and that they have been getting a false narrative.

This credible paper is a short read consisting of only 2 pages yet cites 32 references.

Here is the paper, just print it off.

Now, write VAEPworld.com on the back.

All you have to do now is give it to the receptionist or practitioner at health professional offices.

Because vaping is a hot topic right now and this is a short, credible paper, it will probably get passed around the staff room. Since you wrote VAEPworld.com on the back, you have helped them learn more PLUS given them somewhere to send their patients for infomation on tobacco harm reduction! This means YOU have made all the difference in the world!

 

Suggestions for places to drop it off:

If we work together we can overcome the current lies.

Push back against the war on vaping by giving health professionals the chance to learn.

Youth and vaping

The most pervasive tactic to turn the public against harm reduction is to use children. Fear-based false narratives omit important information, convey information out of context and manipulate our desire to protect children with inflammatory and misleading comments. Please go to our Adolescents and Adult Activities page to look at this subject in depth.

EVALI

Vaping and lung injuries (EVALI)

In 2019, a sudden outbreak of severe lung injuries, some causing death, occurred in North America, mainly the USA. The lung injury was named EVALI (e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury) by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Vitamin E acetate was identified as the additive in illegal THC cartridges that caused the injuries. Health-related authority and nonprofits as well as mainstream media conflated two distinctively different activities: THC cartridge vaping and nicotine eliquid vaping. The result was a misinformed public and health community.

Two travesties occurred. First, failing to adequately warn cannabis users caused unnecessary injury. Second, implying that eliquid was causing lung injuries drove thousands of vapers back to the most lethal form of nicotine: tobacco cigarettes.

Section 1

What happened

Explore the events of the outbreak: the investigation, identifying the cause and how it was resolved.

Section 2

What went wrong

Health-related nonprofits and authority utilized media to spread fear about vaping. Their narrative omitted that EVALI was not caused from nicotine eliquid. 

Section 3

Government & THC cartridges revenue

Health Canada approved the sale of THC cartridges during the outbreak. Their position on the lung injuries contradicts the science and data from the USA.

Section 4

Ethical experts tried to warn you

The UK reviewed the science on vaping around 2014: before the false narratives got to them. They stand alone in being fully informed on and benefiting their citizens with tobacco harm reduction.

Anti-harm reduction advocates

There are many health professionals, health-related nonprofits, politicians and health authorities that are repeating the false narratives. Their recommendations clearly indicate a demand to make tobacco harm reduction unattractive to smokers by banning flavours, taxing vaping, banning nicotine levels that help heavy smokers, and other strategies.
