Public Health England has issued new guidelines to further assist smokers quit their cigarette habit. However, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER these online guidelines include Vaping as an option and in quite a revolutionary way: by directing the reader to their nearest Vape Store using Google location finder. How novel.
As with any decent revolution – there is some opposition. An article published in the Daily Mail (20/09/18) states that some scientists feel this is the wrong approach, citing antiquated reasons for their scepticism:
The fact of the matter is:
The scientists are misguided in their thinking for many reasons but for example:
2) Research is on-going but we’re already a long way down the road to proving the safety and benefits of vaping. Even then Vaping is without a doubt 100% safer than smoking a cigarette.
3) Yes some vaping products are manufactured by the Tobacco industry. Tobacco companies are powerful, private companies with vested interest shareholders. The industry is losing money and traction to the vaping industry – it is foolish to think they would simply ignore this market.
In England alone, figures published by PHE suggest that more than half of the 2.9 million vapers have stopped smoking completely and a further 770,000 do not smoke or vape any more. At the same time quit success rates have been improving and figures are showing an accelerated drop in smoking rates, currently at a record low of 15.5% in England.
PHE stats also indicate that that e-cigarettes could be contributing to at least 20,000 successful new quits per year and anecdotal evidence suggests possibly many more.
By taking positive action and encouraging smokers to try Vaping as a ‘quit method’ Public Health England is embracing THE most successful method to helping people stop their tobacco habit - Vaping.
Even a recent study by the NHS and Cancer Research UK found that
“vape shops provide behavioural support which could help people stop smoking and remain smoke free. And health professionals could benefit from understanding the role that vape shops play in reducing smoking”.
Furthermore, they acknowledge and appreciate that smokers are more like to quit successfully by seeking the advice of vaping experts in designated vaping stores. Over 80 percent of first time vapers who seek advice before starting, on types of device, nicotine levels in e-juice etc., are more likely to stay vaping than those who buy online and just try themselves.
The agenda of antivaping ‘scientists’ seems paradoxically contrary to public health. Vaping may be a fairly new phenomenon and even with the acknowledged on-going research – surely it is better to have somebody vaping than smoking.
May be these scientists should turn their attention to the health problems that future generations will face because of society’s sugar addiction, or the devastation taking place in people’s lives due to the abundance and free reign of online gambling sites.
Well Done Public Health England – the Vaping industry applauds you for boldly going where no health body has ventured before.
Our video looks at how scientific research has debunked some of the most common misconceptions about e-cigarettes to give you a clearer picture of the difference between vaping and smoking.
Oxford Academic - a renowned scholastic journal will no longer allow authors to call vaping devices tobacco products. In an editorial entitled “Are e-cigarettes tobacco products?”, editor-in-chief Marcus Munafò explains that the journal will only use the term “tobacco products” to describe items that contain actual leaf tobacco.
