We’ve had a few recent examples of electronic cigarette dangers highlighted once again in the media.
It seems that as the health benefits of switching to vaping and e-cigarettes are becoming more apparent and researched the media are scouring the land looking for stories to highlight other dangers to put a dampener of the proverbial vaping spirits.
Does the press have a responsibility to report factual information based on research and balance? We think so.
Have a read of our take on the Irish Examiner's coverage of the unfortunate accident of two children ingesting e-liquid and as a result giving a voice for Chris Luke's bizarre rant on electronic cigarettes.
This weekend Sunday Times journalist Siobhan Maguire wrote a very interesting and informative piece on the reaction of the vaping community to the decision by Irish Transport Authorities, Irish Rail and Bus Eireann, to ban vaping in stations and on public transport. In the article Siobhan explores the myths and fears behind vaping that may have led to complaints by travellers and the blanket decision by transport bosses. Is ignorance simply overruling the most recent findings that the vapour is harmless and inhaling e-liquid, whether it contains nicotine or not, is an adult decision that should be left to the individual?
In the piece, Steve Barrett, MD of purplebox vapours, hopes that the decision will be a starting point for discussion between vaping associations and transport authorities, which will lead to specified vaping areas or carriages and that sense will prevail in the long run.
