Thailand’s health minister won’t stop legalization of vaping

“Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul may not support the legalization of e-cigarettes, but most politicians and the public do, with legal vape sales only months away,” says Asa Saligupta, Director of ECST (ENDS Cigarette Smoke Thailand). Mr Saligupta’s comments follow the Public Health Minister publicly claiming his Ministry will not support legalization during a meeting with the Thai Health Promotion Foundation (ThaiHealth).

 

Malaysia set to lift ban on e-cigarette sales

Malaysia’s long-time ban on the sale of vaping products is set to end, saving thousands of lives every year, says leading local advocacy group MOVE (Malaysian Organization of Vape Entities).  Taking effect on 3 August, the regulation of vaping devices precedes the imminent legalization of vape sales. It follows years of campaigning by MOVE and other Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) supporters.


Australian election campaign must debate vaping

Australian politicians who recognize the public health potential of vaping will be rewarded with votes, yet most remain too scared to promote the world’s most effective smoking cessation tool, says Nancy Loucas, Executive Co-ordinator of CAPHRA. “Australia’s political leaders need to pull their heads out of the sand,” Ms Loucas says. “Annually over 20,000 Australian smokers die prematurely from smoking-related illnesses and 2.3 million still smoke. Alarmingly, however, nobody wants to seriously fix successive governments’ failure to reduce tobacco harm.”

 

Key countries refuse to back down against anti-vape philanthropy

It’s incredibly admirable that three key Asia Pacific countries are turning their backs on philanthropic colonialism which has seen too many smokers unnecessarily die over the past decade, says Nancy Loucas, Executive Coordinator of CAPHRA. Her comments come as the Philippines awaits presidential approval to regulate vaping while Malaysia and Thailand look to lift their failed vaping bans.

 

Malaysia’s vaping approval delayed by politics

“Legislation to regulate vaping in Malaysia is pending parliamentary approval but frustratingly will now be delayed due to political instability and election campaigning,” says Samsul Kamal Ariffin, President of MOVE (Malaysian Organization of Vape Entities). “Malaysia’s Health Minister YB Khairy Jamaluddin’s decision to regulate the vape industry is forward looking and highly commendable. Things were looking good but unfortunately the speed at which this bill will be approved is now directly related to what’s going on politically in Malaysia,” says Mr Ariffin.

 

Survey proves non-smoking youth are not taking up vaping

Smoking among New Zealand’s young teenagers has fallen to its lowest levels in over 20 years, while very few non-smoking students take up vaping, according to a significant survey of secondary school students.  “Vaping rates might be up, but these are overwhelmingly young people who were smoking in the first place,” said Nancy Loucas, CAPHRA’s executive coordinator.

 

Philippine President must act now & sign pro-vaping act

The Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates has written to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte asking him to urgently sign the Vaporized Nicotine Products Regulation Act into law. Both the Philippine Senate and House of Representatives have ratified the harmonized version of the act which will regulate the use, manufacture, importation, sale, distribution and promotion of vaping and heated tobacco products. It now awaits the president’s signature or veto.

 

Malaysia’s vaping regulation sends global message – CAPHRA

Malaysia’s Ministry of Health is making good progress, with its imminent legislation to regulate vaping globally important, says the Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates. CAPHRA says considerable and effective advocacy from local consumer groups over recent years was key to the Government’s decision last year to legalise liquid nicotine and move forward with regulation.

Advocates announce ‘Good COP, Bad COP’ awards

With the international tobacco control conference COP9 now over, Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) advocates have handed out their ‘Good COP, Bad COP’ awards. The awards follow THR experts and consumer advocates organising a global livestream from 8 to 12 November during COP9 – the 9th Conference of Parties for the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). Dubbed sCOPe, the round-the-clock YouTube simulcast attracted significant attention, adding to increasing international pressure on the WHO to embrace safer nicotine products, not demonise them.

 

Vapers praise Filipino Secretary for COP9 comments

Praise from Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) advocates and vapers worldwide continues for Philippine Foreign Affairs Secretary, Teodoro Locsin Jr,  who recently told online delegates at COP9 – a key international tobacco control conference hosted by the World Health Organization – they must consider ‘evolving and latest scientific information’ if the global smoking problem is to be solved. “We salute his bravery at COP9 for promoting the Philippines’ balanced and evidence-based approach to safer nicotine products,” says Peter Dator, president of consumer group Vapers PH and CAPHRA member. “Opponents and officials have since done their best to discredit Secretary Locsin and disrespect our country’s democracy and sovereignty, but they have failed badly.”

 

International pressure mounts ahead of COP9 conference

Just two weeks out from the World Health Organization’s COP9 conference on tobacco control, pressure is mounting on delegates from 182 member countries to push for a positive stance on Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR). The calls come as a significant round-the-clock global broadcasting event has been announced to take place during COP9. Dubbed ‘sCOPe’, the five-day livestream will see THR experts and consumers, from around the world, challenge and scrutinise the key conference.

 

Global broadcast to counter secretive WHO conference 

A significant round-the-clock global broadcasting event, featuring world-leading Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) experts and consumer advocates for safer nicotine products, has been announced. Vowing they won’t be silenced, event organisers will broadcast throughout a key World Health Organization (WHO) conference on tobacco control. The Ninth Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP9) to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) will run from 8 to 13 November. It will be held online and behind closed doors.

 

Thai Minister’s support for vaping ‘goes global’

Thailand’s Digital Economy and Society Minister, Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn, has told his local media that vaping is safer for people trying to quit smoking. He is also looking at ways vaping could be legalised in order to offer a less harmful alternative to smoking regular cigarettes. “Support for the Minister has gone global!” said Nancy Loucas, Executive Coordinator of the Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates (CAPHRA).  “This should be a massive wake-up call for Thailand’s Government. He’s on the side of science and his calls have exposed the fact that Thailand has fallen well behind internationally when it comes to adopting effective Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) policies.”

 

Survey proves Indian vaping ban a total failure

“This is the most significant independent survey we’ve seen coming out of India since its 2019 vaping ban. It shows an overwhelming call for the Government to lift the ban and regulate access to safer nicotine products,” according to CAPHRA’s Nancy Loucas.  Her comments follow the release of a ‘Survey of Current & Former Smoke-Free Product Users: India’ conducted by Povaddo – a firm specializing in global public opinion research. The survey was commissioned by consumer advocacy group, Fact Asia.

 

Black Friday: Australia makes smoking so much easier

“Friday, 1 October marks the day deadly cigarettes become a lot easier to obtain in Australia than safer nicotine vaping products,” says Nancy Loucas, Executive Coordinator of the Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates. Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has expanded its prescription-only model with customs to clamp down at the border. This means no more personal importation of nicotine vaping liquids, via overseas websites, without a doctor’s prescription.

 

Philippine survey confirms huge support for vaping

“The Philippine Senate will be on the right side of the people when it approves the most progressive vaping legislation in Asia Pacific,” according to Nancy Loucas, Executive Coordinator of the Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates (CAPHRA).  Her comments follow the release of a survey conducted by ACORN Marketing & Research Consultants. ‘A Survey of Attitudes Among Adult Tobacco & Nicotine Users in the Philippines’ was commissioned by consumer advocacy group, Vapers PH.

 

WHO busted for manipulating key tobacco conference

The World Health Organization has been badly caught out ahead of the Ninth Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP9) to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) in November. COP9 organisers declared months ago there would be no discussions or decisions around Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) products at COP9. That work would be delayed until COP10 in 2023, they said.

 

Philippines Must Thoroughly Investigate Bloomberg’s Billions

Since late 2020, Philippine lawmakers have been examining the former-mayor-turned-so-called-philanthropist Michael Bloomberg’s financial influence on tobacco control policies. In an October 2020 hearing with the Philippines Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the agency was exposed for taking funding from two Bloomberg-backed nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), including the Union and Bloomberg Initiative. In December, two Philippine Representatives filed a resolution seeking an investigation into the funding.

 

Hong Kong must regulate not ban vaping – experts

An esteemed group of Asia Pacific medical and scientific professionals and researchers has written to Hong Kong Chief Executive, Hon Carrie Lam, concerned that Hong Kong is set to ban safer alternative nicotine products such as vaping. ‘We recently came across media reports highlighting that Hong Kong will move forward to deliberate on a bill which seeks to ban the importation and sales of all alternative nicotine delivery products such as e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products,’ wrote the Expert Advisory Group of CAPHRA.

 

Asia Pacific Declaration fights for 600 million smokers’ lives

“September marks the start of the secret season. It sadly sees supposed ‘tobacco control experts’ playing up to their puppet masters and denying Asia Pacific’s 600 million smokers’ access to safer nicotine products,” says Nancy Loucas, Executive Coordinator of the Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates. Her comments come as the 13th Asia Pacific Conference on Tobacco or Health (APACT) takes place virtually from Bangkok, Thailand on 2, 3 and 4 September.

 

Research untangles web of foreign NGOs’ interference in Philippine policies

New research by the Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates has confirmed that at least seven Philippine NGOs were among those which received millions of dollars from the anti-tobacco Bloomberg and Gates foundations to lobby the government for a ban on vaping in the country. Coming on the heels of a House probe on foreign money influencing the Department of Health and the Food and Drugs administration without transparency and proper audit, CAPHRA outlined the money trail that go to lobbying for vested-interest policies devoid of any public disclosure and accountability.

 

WHO under fire for refusal to accept & promote vaping as safer alternative to smoking

“One American Journal of Public Health article is proving to be a watershed moment in the vape debate. It has singularly pushed the World Health Organization to the complete outer when it comes to considered international opinion and research,” says Nancy Loucas, Executive Coordinator of the Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates.

 

Vapers unite to fight WHO’s relentless lies

Panellists on the latest Advocates Voice have passionately pleaded for fellow vapers and Tobacco Harm Reduction champions to stick together and support each other in the fight for over one billion lives globally. The call comes as anger deepens about the World Health Organization’s blatant and baseless lies on nicotine vaping – the world’s most effective smoking cessation tool and proven to be 95% less harmful than combustible cigarettes.

 

Leading advocacy groups unite to humanize tobacco harm reduction movement

With the goal of creating the world’s largest collection of successful vape stories, two leading consumer advocacy groups have launched the RightToVape.org site. Already boasting nearly 14,000 testimonials, the site demonstrates growing anger from across the globe that evidence is being ignored and many people’s right to choose safer alternatives is being denied.

 

NZ vape flavour ban only penalises adults keen to quit smoking

New Zealand’s vape flavour ban for general retailers will sadly cost lives, making it harder for adults desperate to quit smoking, says the country’s leading consumer vaping advocacy. With the Smokefree Environments and Regulated Products (Vaping) Amendment Act passing last year, general retailers such as supermarkets, service stations and convenience stores can now only sell three flavours – mint, menthol and tobacco.

 

WHO ‘is condemning millions of smokers to certain death’: CAPHRA

“The WHO is condemning millions of smokers to certain death by denying them the right to safer alternatives. With biased evidence and bad science, its latest report evokes moral panic. The Advocates Voice will expose it for what it is,” says Nancy Loucas, Executive Coordinator of CAPHRA.  The latest episode of The Advocates Voice (TAV 8) follows the World Health Organization (WHO) releasing its eighth annual report on the global tobacco epidemic last month.

 

WHO’s latest report against vaping completely compromised

The World Health Organization’s just-released ‘eighth annual report on the global tobacco epidemic’ is sadly more proof that billionaire foundations are more influential on the WHO’s public health guidance than leading international scientific evidence, says Asia Pacific’s leading Tobacco Harm Reduction consumer advocacy group.

 

Otago study sends mixed messages on best quit smoking tool

A University of Otago study that claims the transition from cigarettes to vaping is not as straightforward as many think is not helpful to the many Kiwis desperate to quit smoking, says one leading Tobacco Harm Reduction advocate.

Philippines Senate to lead region with progressive vaping laws

“The world is watching as the Philippines Senate looks set to approve the most progressive and risk-proportionate vaping legislation in Asia Pacific. We’re hoping other countries in the region will then follow their lead,” says Nancy Loucas

Increasing abuse against THR advocates revealed during live discussion

A full and frank international panel discussion revealed public attacks on Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) advocates are increasingly personal, derogatory and defamatory. Hosted by Asia Pacific’s CAPHRA (Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates) the 11 July discussion is available to view on Here.  Moderated by CAPHRA’s Nancy Loucas, TAV 7 included public relations expert and Medical Observer publisher, Jena Fetalino (Managing Director of JFPRC, Philippines). She believed the abuse levelled at THR advocates and the industry reflected just one thing.

TAV 7 will be led by public health expert, Dr Konstantinos Farsalinos.

WHO’s attempts to link vaping to COVID, discredited

The World Health Organization’s attempts to link vaping with COVID-19 have been completely discredited by a significant study out of the United States, says Asia Pacific’s leading Tobacco Harm Reduction consumer advocacy group. Research by the Mayo Clinic published in the Journal of Primary Care & Community Health, titled ‘Electronic Cigarette Use Is Not Associated with COVID-19 Diagnosis’ involved nearly 70,000 patients. The study concluded that e-cigarettes ‘do not appear to increase susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2 infection’.

Concerns about youth vaping already well addressed

Media stories about youth vaping are deeply concerning but significant changes have been made in the past year with more coming,” says Nancy Loucas, co-director of the Aotearoa Vapers Community Advocacy (AVCA). Her comments follow a story on Maori television show, The Hui. It investigated ‘the uptake of vaping amongst rangatahi (younger generation), which is leading to stand-offs at home and stand-downs at school.’

Registrations grow for Asia Harm Reduction Forum 2021

Interest is building ahead of the 4th Asia Harm Reduction Forum (AHRF). This year, as a virtual event, it promises to be dynamic gathering of global Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) advocates with significant developments to discuss. Organised from the Philippines, registration and participation for the 28 June forum is being strongly encouraged by CAPHRA.

October’s vaping ban sees Australia lag even further behind

Asia Pacific’s leading Tobacco Harm Reduction consumer advocacy group has lashed out at the Australian Federal Government for making it increasingly harder for Australia’s 2.3 million daily smokers to quit cigarettes. “Australia is miles behind many others in the Asia Pacific region, and the UK, when it comes to acknowledging vaping’s key role in beating tobacco. Australia is sadly kowtowing to the World Health Organisation, rather than accepting compelling international evidence,” says Nancy Loucas, executive coordinator for CAPHRA.

Cigarette smuggling will worsen if vaping not promoted

If the Government’s smokefree action plan does not adequately elevate nicotine vaping as the much safer alternative, then cigarette smuggling will become a bigger problem at New Zealand’s border, says a leading Kiwi Tobacco Harm Reduction advocate. Her comments follow a media investigation which revealed Customs is currently seizing around 125,000 smuggled cigarettes and 155 kilograms of loose tobacco every month.

Attacks on vaping, politically timed

Alarmist media stories on vaping are politically timed to inflict the most damage on a practice that’s saving thousands of New Zealanders’ lives, claims a leading Tobacco Harm Reduction advocate. Her comments follow a frontpage nationwide newspaper story, headlined ‘Vaping – at 10’. “Why don’t we see ‘Smoking – at 10’, ‘Drinking – at 10’, ‘Drugs – at 10’ media stories? It’s all about vaping, which is ironic given it’s the least harmful,” says Nancy Loucas, co-director of Aotearoa Vapers Community Advocacy (AVCA).

Vape flavour petition dismissed despite mounting evidence

Fifteen months after a Parliamentary petition supporting ongoing access to vape flavours closed, and nearly a year after it was referred to the Health Select Committee, it has finally been reported and ruled on with the official response described as woeful.  Petition organiser, Nancy Loucas, who is co-director of Aotearoa Vapers Community Advocacy (AVCA), said the whole process has been incredibly disheartening, with 17,357 Kiwis who signed the petition dismissed outright despite mounting evidence.

Time for enforcement not education on vape purchases

Reports that minors are still able to purchase vape products from some convenience stores is deeply concerning, says New Zealand’s leading consumer vaping group. “The overwhelming majority of vape retailers are responsible, requesting age identification, and only selling to those who can prove they’re 18 years or older. It’s disappointing then when media stings reveal a few retailers continue to break the law,” says Nancy Loucas, co-director of the Aotearoa Vapers Community Advocacy (AVCA).

Experts warn leaders on WHO’s baseless vaping guidance

The Expert Advisory Group of the Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates has written to Asia Pacific’s Health Ministers and Secretaries expressing their deep concern about the World Health Organisation’s latest Tobacco Product Regulation Report (TobReg). CAPHRA’s EAG warns that WHO’s study group is not acting in public health’s best interests by recommending bans on all aspects of vaping that are the cornerstone of its effectiveness.

Lies about vaping will be confronted this Sunday

A fresh round of mistruths about vaping in the media lately will be dealt with head on during a live panel discussion of vaping advocates and experts on Sunday, 6 June.

Sunday’s episode will be simulcast on CAPHRA’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/caphraorg. Questions from viewers to the panel are encouraged.

World Vape Day Estimates Show It Was Bigger Than Ever: CAPHRA

World Vape Day was an unprecedented success with social media engagement about the annual global celebration up considerably, says the Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates (CAPHRA). “The social media analytics for World Vape Day are impressive. It enjoyed huge growth in the number of postings, followers, and positive comments. Without doubt, #WVD21 gained much more traction than 2020’s event,” CAPHRA’s Nancy Loucas said.

WHO’s latest tobacco report – an ‘epic fail’ for public health

Asia Pacific’s leading tobacco harm reduction advocacy group, CAPHRA, is deeply disturbed by the World Health Organisation’s recently released ‘Tobacco Product Regulation Report’. It says WHO’s negative and obstructive approach towards safer nicotine vaping products continues to impact smoking cessation rates, costing lives globally.

‘Historic’ bill to regulate vaping in Philippines heads to Senate

A bill that regulates the manufacture, use, sale, distribution, and promotion of vaping, as well as heated tobacco products (HTPs) has passed its third and final reading in the Philippines’ House of Representatives. It will now go to the Senate. According to consumer advocates, barring any undue outside influence, there the bill will be approved into law.

アジア太平洋地域の消費者グループは、世界保健機関(WHO)に消費者の権利を尊重し、COVID-19パンデミック中の喫煙問題を悪化させるだけの革新的なニコチン製品に対する嘘を終わらせるよう求める請願を開始しています。 「私たちに嘘をつくのをやめ、健全な科学的事実、方法論、原則に基づいたガイダンスのみを提供してください」と、アジア太平洋タバコ害低減擁護団体(CAPHRA)およびその他の消費者擁護団体は、2021年のVoices4Vape中に開始されるRight2Switch請願書で述べました。 3月21日の午後1時から午後3時(HKT)のウェビナー。請願書はで見ることができます https://change.org/v4v-petition

喫煙の流行を煽るためにLMICでより安全なニコチン製品を禁止する–アジアの消費者

アジア太平洋地域の消費者団体は、ブルームバーグが資金提供する反たばこ非政府組織によって提案されたように、低中所得国での電子タバコと加熱式たばこ製品(HTP)の全面禁止は喫煙の流行を煽り、喫煙関連の病気による死亡者数を増やします。アジア太平洋地域のたばこ害低減支持者連合(CAPHRA)は、ニコチン消費者団体の国際ネットワーク(INNCO)が発表した、電子タバコやHTPなどのたばこ害低減(THR)の代替案が役立つという報告を支持する声明を発表しました。妨げにはならない、世界的なたばこ規制の目的。

V4Vウェビナーでパンデミックの中でタバコの害の低減に取り組む消費者

アジア太平洋地域のより安全なニコチン製品の消費者と支持者は、2021年3月21日に開催されるオンラインセミナーでCovid-19を封じ込めるために同じ科学と原則を使用して、喫煙の流行に対処するための効果的な公衆衛生政策の必要性に取り組みます。アジア太平洋地域のタバコ害軽減擁護者連合(CAPHRA)およびその他の消費者擁護団体は、2021年のVoices4Vapeウェビナーを午後1時から午後3時(HKT)に開催し、主に次の質問を中心に議論を行っています。彼らはTHRの科学を信頼していませんか?」

アジア太平洋地域の消費者とより安全なニコチン製品のユーザーは、喫煙をやめる上で、蒸気を吸うことや電子タバコの使用がニコチン置換療法(NRT)よりも優れていることを示す英国公衆衛生サービスによる最新の報告を歓迎しました。 CAPHRAによると、英国公衆衛生サービスによる最新の科学的評価は、タバコの害低減ツールとしての電子タバコが可燃性タバコの喫煙をやめるための最も効果的な手段でもあるという確固たる証拠を提供しています。

この封鎖をキウイベイパーと企業を支援するために提出する

オークランドの多くの無煙サポーターとベイパーは、この最新の封鎖と雨天を利用して、保健省のベイピング規制案を提出し、キウイ事業を支援する必要があると、タバコの害低減の第一人者は述べています。 「ロックダウンを無駄にしないでください。これには、オークランドのスナップロックダウンも含まれます。悲しいことに、私たちは国としてSmokefree 2025を達成することはできませんが、これらの蒸気を吸う規制を正しく行わないと、決してそうはなりません」と、Aotearoa Vapers Community Advocacy(AVCA)の共同ディレクターであるナンシールーカスは述べています。

CAPHRAは、ブルームバーグの政策付与スキームに対して警告します

たばこ害低減(THR)の地域グループは、低中所得国(LMIC)の政府に、代替ニコチン製品を制限し、さらには禁止する政策と引き換えに、お金をぶら下げている既得権益グループの策略に屈しないように警告しました。喫煙者にとってはタバコよりもはるかに優れた選択肢であることがわかりました。アジア太平洋たばこ害低減支持者連合(CAPHRA)は、一部の公衆衛生専門家が、たばこに関する規制当局の政策と決定に影響を与えるための助成金や技術支援を提供するブルームバーグ・フィランソロピーなどのグループの活動について実際に懸念を表明していると述べた特にLMICでの制御。

アークフレーバーの証拠に従う時間–ペティショナー
主要なvaping支持者は、保健省がvaping規則案の提出を開始したため、すべてが失われるわけではないと述べています。サービスステーションなどの一般小売業者のアークフレーバーを3つに制限することは、提案されている2021年8月11日の実装時間枠の前にまだ確認する必要があります。 「フレーバーを制限するという提案は、専門家である保健省とハパイテハウオラの見解に反するものであり、無煙2025の達成には役立たないと考えています。ミントフレーバーは、タバコの味を求めているのではなく、タバコから離れるためのものです」と、ルーカス氏は選択委員会への補足提出で書いています。

フィリピンFDAへのブルームバーグの寄付は米国の法律に違反している可能性があると専門家は言う

国際的な公衆衛生政策の専門家は、フィリピン食品医薬品局によるたばこ対策ブルームバーグ財団からの資金の受領について、それがフィリピンと米国の両方の法律に違反しているかどうかを判断するためのより深い調査を求めた。行政の相互訓練を受けた米国の医師であるジョエル・ニッツキン博士は、先月、フィリピンFDAがブルームバーグからの外国資金を受け入れることについて議会の調査を求める2人のフィリピン議会議員による決議の提出に光を当てる必要性を挙げた。 1987年の憲法といくつかの法律に違反する可能性があります。

誰がvapingとCOVID-19リスクについて嘘をつくのをやめるように頼んだ

アジア太平洋地域のたばこ害軽減擁護団体連合(CAPHRA)は、世界保健機関(WHO)に、蒸気を吸うことや電子タバコの使用を通じてコロナウイルス病2019(COVID-19)に感染するリスクについて嘘をつくのをやめるよう要請しました。 103ページのホワイトペーパーで、CAPHRAは、vaping / COVIDリンクは、WHOが禁煙アジェンダの一部として広めている最新の危険な嘘であると述べています。このグループは、WHOが世界の喫煙をなくそうと努めており、何百万人もの成人の喫煙者がより安全な電子タバコ製品にアクセスするのを意図的に阻止しようとしていると述べました。

WHOの最新のエラー:VapingとCOVIDの間のリンク

過去数年にわたって、世界保健機関(WHO)は、世界中で命を犠牲にしている悲劇的な失敗のグロテスクな数を作りました。ごく最近、彼らは、蒸気を吸うことと喫煙がCOVID-19の感染につながるという声明を支持しています。 The Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates(CAPHRA)の報告によると、COVID-19の蒸気を吸うことと収縮することの関係に関する世界的な医学研究のレビューでは、そのような関係は示されておらず、世界の喫煙をなくそうとしています。 WHOは、何百万人もの成人のたばこ喫煙者がより安全な蒸気を吸う製品にアクセスすることを故意にそして意図的に防ぐことを再び試みました。
