Anti-THR Lies

Author: C.V.Phillips

Brainy Fur Ball

Author: Robert Innes

It would appear that there is no such thing as ‘safe.’ If we are to believe what we are told, particularly with reference to Harm Reduction, there is no such thing exists as safe. We are told this repeatedly. We are warned against using this ‘dangerous’ term – that it leads us into an area that can be exploited by our opponents – I beg to differ.

Musings about vaping and science

Author: Norbert Zillatron

I’m a vaper, I’ve been vaping now for almost three years. I studied computer science. So, while I’m no expert in other fields, I know enough of the basics to understand the studies and detect problems. All the views are my own. I don’t work for any ecigs or tobacco lobby. I’m just a regular citizen. Not“astroturf”.

Author: Dick Puddlecote

Vaping for the over 60’s. I smoked for 50 years. In 2009 I bought one of the very primitive electronic cigarette devices of the time to take away on holiday where smoking was banned.  It was a dreadful thing, giving only a headache and no satisfaction.
