A new low in anti-vape scaremongering

A Tasmania anti-smoking activist, Kathryn Barnsley, displayed a misleading anti-vaping banner, wrongly attributing oral cancer risks to vaping. The claim is based on a single case study of a young man with tongue cancer, with no evidence from scientific literature supporting a link to vaping. The banner displayed misinformation, amplifying scaremongering tactics. Such misleading information spreads easily and could hinder the understanding of the harm reduction potential of vaping.
