The Plain and Simple Fact, Vaping Is Healthier Than Smoking.
Is Vaping Really That Bad?
Vaping is something that is attacked frequently by the media, in this article we take a look at what research by experts say.
Public Health England’s:
“Our advice on e-cigarettes remains unchanged – vaping isn’t completely risk free but is far less harmful than smoking tobacco. There is no situation where it would be better for your health to continue smoking rather than switching completely to vaping”
“Vaping, 95% less harmful than smoking”
“An estimated 2.9 million adults in Great Britain currently use e-cigarettes and of these, 1.5 million people have completely stopped smoking cigarettes. They carry a fraction of the risk of cigarettes and can be particularly effective when combined with extra quitting support.”
“In the UK e-cigarettes are tightly regulated for safety and quality. They aren’t completely risk free, but they carry a small fraction of the risk of cigarettes. E-cigarettes don’t produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most harmful elements in tobacco smoke.”
“There are misconceptions among a large proportion of the public that e-cigarettes are equally or more harmful than smoking however, research to date indicates that they less harmful as they don’t contain tobacco or involve combustion.”
