SHOW RUNDOWN AND LINKS

PART 1: WHO – TREACHERY ON VAPING

  • April 8, 2020: Trump is right: the rotten World Health Organisation should be reformed or abolished

“WHO urges researchers, scientists and the media to be cautious about amplifying unproven claims that tobacco or nicotine could reduce the risk of COVID19. There is currently insufficient information to confirm any link between tobacco or nicotine in the prevention or treatment of COVID19.”

“WHO stresses the importance of ethically approved, high-quality, systematic research that will contribute to advancing individual and public health, emphasizing that promotion of unproven interventions could have a negative effect on health.”

PART 2: COVID/VAPING/NICOTINE – NEGATIVE

    • Plausible hypotheses that nicotine is protective against more severe COVID-19 symptoms are emerging. They are consistent with case data showing smokers are strikingly underrepresented in hospitalizations. It is too soon to accept such theories, but they can’t be ignored either.

PART 4 – YOUTH USE CANADA

PART 5 – NIC CAP

    • The CVA has called for the federal government to limit nicotine concentrations to 20 milligrams per millilitre. The rise in youth vaping rates in Canada directly correlates to the entrance of Big Tobacco vape brands, such as Juul and Vype.

      • Wow, that’s a reckless move from “vape advocates”. Juul etc have helped millions of smokers. It isn’t pro-vape shop, if that’s your reasoning: it is anti-category, anti-consumer, anti-competitive. Do this and don’t be surprised when regulators come for your favourite thing.

PART 6- WRAP TOPICS

  • Tobacco Control Rejects any Involvement by Tobacco Industry: April 20, 2020: Clive Bates Twitter thread
    • https://twitter.com/Clive_Bates/status/1252173173774258176
    • The bizarre lack of perspective and repugnant value system behind tobacco control opposition to tobacco companies using plant biotech to develop COVID-19 vaccines. They have their guiding principle: anything that in reality shows the principle is flawed has to be rejected.
    • Challenges principle that there is a fundamental and irreconcilable conflict between the tobacco industry’s interest and public health policy interests

Tobacco control is a cult. A creepy unworldly sect, with an elaborate belief system, high-priests and shamans, sacred texts, pathological hatreds, child exploitation, intolerance of dissent, nourished by billion-dollar funding and concealed by the ornamentation of respectability.
