Smoking kills over 40,000 Canadians and over 400,000 Americans every single year! How many North Americans have been diagnosed with a chronic smoking-related disease because they didn’t know they had an effective and safe harm reduction option?
Smoking is the biggest cause of preventable disease & death in North America. Yet, health-related authorities and nonprofits in Canada and the USA, blame nicotine vaping as the cause of the lung injuries and demand stricter restrictions on tobacco harm reduction.
Utah remained true to the evidence as the balance of health authorities and media lied to the public. Dr. Aberegg identifies the false self-reporting by lung injury patients: people are afraid to say they used illegal drugs.
Youth experiment with adult activities, this is why 52% vaped “to give it a try”. Cigarette smoke is far more addictive than nicotine vapour and far more harmful. Since smoking tastes gross, perhaps the flavours in eliquid are preventing them from becoming smokers.
Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs wrote a referenced paper about EVALI. It is the perfect document to enlighten health professionals about how they have been deceived about tobacco harm reduction.
The Canadian federal government controls the sale of cannabis products.
On October 19, 2020, during the EVALI outbreak, THC cartridges were approved for sale. The fact that EVALI was caused by illegal THC cartridges could have an adverse effect on legal THC cartridges sales revenue.
Nicotine eliquid was blamed.
HC acknowledges the cause
In December 2019, Health Canada (HC) was questioned by CBC as to the cause of EVALI because the Gov’t of Canada approved the sale of THC cartridges during the EVALI outbreak. HC clearly communicates that they understand EVALI is cause from illegal THC carts and not from nicotine eliquid.
March 2021 Health Canada website: “In Canada, most cases of vaping associated lung illness do not appear to have been associated with the use of THC-containing products.”
When reading this statement, consider that Health Canada relied on patient self-reporting during a time that THC carts were illegal. They did not conduct biopsies, product analysis nor toxicology screening.
Due to the deception that nicotine vaping was the cause of EVALI, sales of the new cannabis products were not interupted but how many vapers switched back to the most lethal form of nicotine: tobacco cigarettes?
