The player posted an Instagram story of himself vaping in his rugby gear.
“The Gold Coast Titans have sanctioned Kevin Proctor after being made conscious of an incident throughout yesterday’s spherical 19 fixture in opposition to the Bulldogs,” announced the team. The 33 year old posted an Instagram story of himself vaping in his Titans t-shirt July 24th. According to Wide World Of Sports, Proctor is open to transferring overseas, but of course if such an option is not viable he may just have to retire.

Meanwhile a new campaign by Australian Public Health and Tobacco Treatment expert Dr. Colin Mendelsohn, aims to combat the current misinformation being spread across Australia. ‘Dr Col’s Vape Truths’, is an evidenced-based video campaign on nicotine vaping, consisting of a series of eight short evidence-based videos on vaping.

Recently announcing the campaign on his website Mendelsohn described it as follows: “Dr Col’s Vape Truths’ campaign consists of eight short videos correcting common misconceptions about vaping and is based on eight misleading and alarmist videos by Queensland Health. The videos cover the following key evidence:

  • 1 Vapour is far less toxic than cigarette smoke.
  • 2 Vaping significantly reduces the risk of cancer relative to smoking.
  • 3 Vaping nicotine does not cause serious harm to the lungs.
  • 4 Vapes incorrectly labelled as nicotine-free are dodgy disposable products sold on the black market, not from reputable businesses.
  • 5 There has never been a single death caused by vaping nicotine.
  • 6 When smokers switch to vaping, their breathing improves substantially.
  • 7 Vaping is not completely risk-free but is substantially safer than deadly cigarettes.
  • 8 Most of the chemicals in vapour are present at very low doses and most cause little or no harm.”
