The year long inquiry has ended, the 168 page report from Federal parliament was released yesterday and in summary nothing has changed! Very disappointing outcome! Australia will maintain the illegal status quo of vaping nicotine therefore continuing to criminalise vapers for choosing a less harmful alternative to smoking. Why should we have to break the […]

In realistic conditions, aldehyde emissions from new-generation e-cigarettes were up to 99% lower than smoking. “Formaldehydes detected in E-Cigs” headlines are only based on mis-use or “dry puffs”. The science is settled. LINK
On 25 May 2017, the Minister for Health, Aged Care and Sport, The Hon Greg Hunt MP, referred an inquiry into the Use and Marketing of Electronic Cigarettes and Personal Vaporisers in Australia to the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Health, Aged Care and Sport (Health Committee). This enquiry is still outstanding after more […]
Taking a closer look at WA Government submission to the Federal Inquiry into use & marketing of e-cigs in Australia. The government have made some strong statements supporting the banning of e-cigs, which could have a massive (negative) impact on public health so its worth taking a closer look. Is it misinformation? Is it malpractice? […]
This significant government policy paper, released July 18,2017 embraces vaping and tobacco harm reduction as tools to achieve its smoke-free vision! Once again, UK are leading the way. LINK
Australia’s federal inquiry into the use and marketing of e-cigarettes has exposed the real intentions of tobacco control activists such as Simon Chapman in Australia. When given the option to discuss the “harm reduction” devices Simon fails to attend due to the presence of British American Tobacco at the meeting. Those that accepted the invitation to […]

Furthermore they are not going the cash grabbing way of applying extortionate taxes, do you know why? Because they’re interested in PUBLIC HEALTH!! This is more severe embarrassment for Australian Health Departments, TGA and other government bodies […]
I recently received some new stock from Aspire, some BVC coils for their CE5 tanks. It came with a warning about nicotine, in fact, even more than that it says the product contains nicotine! Any reasonable person knows that a coil does not contain nicotine, it comes without liquid at all! Aspire’s response is as follows; […]
Brilliantly written, sensible in every word and astoundingly embarrassing for the committee/council of delegates employed to analyse the proposal to reschedule low strength nicotine in Australia. This is a modern, evidence based rebuttal to the TGA’s laughable interim decision which was based almost entirely on the words “may”, “fear”, “possible”, “suggestion”. Beautifully penned by Clive Bates and […]
The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration’s (TGA) recent interim decision to effectively ban nicotine-containing e-cigarettes is a harsh blow to smokers. Australian smokers will be denied access to life-saving technology estimated to have helped millions of smokers to quit overseas. Those most affected will be from lower socio-economic and disadvantaged groups, which have the highest smoking […]
