Moral Panic | Diagnosing the Youth Vaping ‘Epidemic’

Feature Interview with Dr. Mark Tyndall

Stoked by public health special interest groups a litany of frightening headlines has splashed across Canadian newspapers and TV news screens: Vaping Addicts Youth to Nicotine; Youth Vaping Leads to Youth Smoking; Vaping Is an Urgent Threat to Public Health.
