They really are getting desperate.
“Worrying evidence is mounting that vaping isn’t as safe as many people were led to believe.”
Worrying? Maybe to single cell amoebas who read the tabloids. Evidence? Let’s have a look at the evidence…
They take 16 [yes -that’s sixteen] and give them ten puffs of an electrofag. This triggers physiological changes that, in the words of one leading expert, ‘start the heart disease ball rolling’. [My italics].
So we are to take one “experts” opinion that in a miniscule research there is worrying evidence?
Suppose I were walking along and I stumble on a loose paving slab and nearly fall. Now according to our “leading expert” this is “worrying evidence” that the Earth’s tectonic plates are moving and that Ireland is about to vanish beneath the waves. Don’t laugh – according to our “leading expert, this is apparently “worrying evidence”. The ball is rolling and soon we are to experience magnitude 10 earthquakes.
If this “research” were an submission for the Irish Young Scientists Exhibition it wouldn’t even qualify for entry and quite right too. Our fifth year schoolkids would laugh them out of it.
I notice they gratuitously include a video of a vape pen battery exploding in a shop. Note that it’s a vape pen battery and not a phone battery or any other type of battery? Now I have one simple problem with this little video. Could someone explain to me how an obviously hand held camera happened to be trained on that exact spot [from a safe distance] in anticipation of the event? How come the event seems to come as no surprise to our camera holder? No reaction, no shaking of the lens, no rushing to help or raise a fire alarm?
They couldn’t be that desperate, could they?
