Despite the overwhelming international evidence of the life-saving capacities of vaping to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of Australians, the TGA recently decided to continue sticking their head in the sand and rejected an application from the New Nicotine Alliance to allow Australians to use this technology.
We have previously written extensively about on how the overwhelming scientific evidence has shown that these products, which have conclusively been proven to be at least 95% safer than smoking, and that there is no reason whatsoever for them to remain legal in Australia when so many lives are at stake. Europe, the UK, NZ, Canada, the US are all moving to support vaping as a vital smoking cessation tool and as we are being left behind, countless people die as a result.
This pro-cancer decision by the TGA has demonstrated - without question - that the TGA has no interest in evidence, or in fulfilling its statutory obligations. It is - to put it frankly - an absolute disgrace.
