Organizations that want Canadians to keep smoking
These agencies want to stop promotions for tobacco harm reduction. 5.7 million Canadians smoke and over a million suffer with smoking-related diseases. Smoking makes people sick & sick people are profitable for the companies that fund these agencies.
CBC got it wrong
CBC claims that 42% of vapers are “converts”; that they “SWITCHED from smoking”. The original document reads 42% were “SWITCHING” meaning they were dual users. The 58% CBC named “new users’, implying new nicotine users, like youth; actually they are ex-smokers.
Cooking coils for CO
This study in the headlines claimed that vaping produces carbon monoxide (CO). No CO was produced at manufacture specified levels (55-70 W). They tested 2 eliquids & only tested the 2nd eliquid above specified levels. They measured CO from the wreckage.
The lies are working
The pervasive misinformation has successfully convinced the public that eliquid is a source of EVALI. In 4 months, the lies convinced 13% of people that vaping is MORE harmful than smoking, The public now demand tobacco harm reduction bans.
AMA profits off of smokers
Over 14 million Americans suffer with smoking-related diseases. Treating these diseases are very profitable for doctors, pharma, medical supply companies, etc. The AMA agrees with the FDA Pre-Market Tobacco Application (which applies to harm reduction
FDA ends harm reduction
The FDA has a long track record of anti-harm reduction. As of May 12, 2020, the vast majority of flavours in eliquid will disappear from the American market. Those who want to stay off of cigarettes will have to go to the black market for harm reduction.
England started warning the public about the health risks of smoking in 1957; the USA waited until 1964. How many US citizens continued to smoke and got sick because they were not informed? It’s happening again!
Bloomberg invests in smokers
Big name, big money, big business. Did you know that half of the stocks, bonds and mutual funds are owned by the 1%? Than means they own the tobacco companies AND the companies that profit from smoking-related diseases.
Terry Dean fear mongering
Since teens have been experimenting with vaping, youth smoking rate has plummeted! This being ignored by government, health authorities and “health-related” nonprofits like the Canadian Cancer Society! Why are they lying about the ‘gateway’ effect? ?
Terry Dean’s work hsitory
Did you know that people that run ‘health-related’ nonprofits have histories of working for big corporations that profit off of sick people? These same people cycle into gov’t agencies, academic institutions & back to high paying corporate positions. ?
BC gov’t taxes harm reduction
Our society takes care of the sick, provides disability to those that are disabled & supplies fire departments; our taxes cover the costs. Smoking creates more sickness, disability and fires. Vaping reduces the harm and therefore these tax expenditures.
Mr. Stone smoking advocate
In BC smoking kills 5,295 people per year. That’s 66,923 years of life lost…fathers, grandmothers… The BC taxpayer pays $1 BILLION/yr for smoking. Todd Stone wants to make harm reduction unattractive to smokers. Reduce the harm, reduce the cost! Is he aware of what smoking costs the BC taxpayer every year?
Cancer from smoking is profitable
The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) has an annual revenue of about $187,000,000. Cancer from smoking kills 21,366 Canadians annually and many more suffer with the disease. CCS having a problem with vaping is like an AIDS clinic having a problem with condoms.
CCS quotes Hammond study
The Canadian Cancer Society requested the gov’t make vaping less enjoyable for smokers by banning flavours. ? They cite a 45% increase in youth smoking from the Hammond study as their rational.? Statistics Canada reported a DECREASE in youth smoking.?
We believe that health authorities, such as the Canadian Medical Assoc. Journal, tell the truth. We trust them, accept what they say & let it influence our opinions. What happens when we learn they are lying? We wonder what else they are lying about.
CMAJ promotes harm
For 3 months, health authorities such as the Canadian Medical Assoc. Journal unjustly included eliquid as a contributor to EVALI. The deception is followed with a demand to create new harm by making flavours in eliquid illegal & drive it underground.
Jack Boomer quote
To make vaping attractive to current smokers, eliquid comes in many flavour because adults like flavours.?
That’s why there are 1000’s of flavours of alcohol.
Teens are being used to ban eliquid flavours & make harm reduction unattractive to smokers.
San Fran Ban
Harm reduction started in the 80’s AIDS crisis. The gay population started using condoms to lower their risk. It’s ironic that a city with a high gay population bans harm reduction for the most preventable cause of disease & death of its constituents! ?
Sarah Rivin decieves the public
It’s frustrating to read incorrect information about harm reduction from representatives from “health”-related nonprofits. Where are they getting their information from? The public trusts them and their misinformation scares smokers from harm reduction.
AHA discourages harm reduction
Everyday we read health-related nonprofits lack of support for tobacco harm reduction. Why is this? Well, if you consider they exist because people have illnesses like heart disease then wouldn’t the reduction in risk from vaping threaten their revenue?
American Lung Association
The thing about a trusted source of information is that once that source is found to be deceiving about something, they lose credibility.
The American Lung Assoc. was founded in 1904 & their mission has changed as it now includes anti-harm reduction.
