We have all been there. Maybe it’s Twitter, maybe it’s Facebook. You’re in a “heated discussion” about vaping / tobacco harm reduction, and you wish you had that one article, or that one link, or that one quote from that one guy to help prove your point. Well that’s what I’m trying to do here. Think of this as social media “ammo.”
This is my personally cultivated collection of links and media that I use to fight misinformation across the internet. Don’t just copy / paste these articles and studies. Read them and absorb them, so when the time comes you can recall them and speak to them. An educated and informed advocate is an effective advocate.
This will be a “living” document. It will be edited and added to as new information comes in and old information changes.
