Public Health England, a government agency, came out with a comprehensive 3-year study that further cemented their statistic from 2015 that found vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking.
Finally good news about vaping, and about its acceptance in the world at large.
This study shows us how prevalent the propaganda against vaping has been and largely still is. Hopefully, this study proves to some of those stubborn vaping skeptics out there, just how wrong they truly are about vaping.
I think most of us vapers already knew what this study found… Vaping should have been embraced years ago as a way to reduce tobacco consumption.
So if vaping is nowhere near as harmful as smoking, why do most adults think it is? How is there such a blatantly backward perspective out there from your average person with regards to vaping. Why all the vaping myths?
Big pharma can’t sell their products to healthy people.. Big Pharma doesn’t want their inferior and harmful products to have to compete with e-juice!
For years anti vaping proponents within the big pharma realm have tried to come up with some studies and evidence that vaping is harmful (and OF COURSE, they couldn’t provide such a study)….
Yet the propaganda about how vaping and smoking are pretty much the same thing is relentless in this country.
Public Health Englands’ Groundbreaking Results
Check out some of the key takeaways from their Public Health Englands’ “Double Down” On Vaping:
- E-cigs are helping at least 20,000 people quit a year
- In England alone, there are over 79,000 annual deaths due to smoking
- Youth smoking is on the decline
- In England, they want e-cigs to be in hospitals as an alternative for cig smokers and
- They even suggest doctors prescribing e-cigarettes (This one can get complicated, but it does seem to be a move in the right direction)
- Staff should be encouraging people to vape and informing them about the technology
- Smoking shelters should be removed
- Introduce vaping policies to help smokers make the transition
This is the kind of progressive thinking our government regulatory agencies here in America need to adopt.
It’s time for those institutions that are supposed to be protecting us to stop putting their bottom line above the value of the lives of the American people.
COME ON AMERICA
This is a fantastic step for vaping, but we can only hope that the United States will approach e-cigarettes with the same extremely optimistic approach that the UK has. Vaping is the future and the United States need to get on board…. fast.
According to this study, vaping provides nicotine at 95% safer rate. Sadly here in the United States we’re currently fighting multiple flavor bans, and if you take a look at our case study you’ll be able to see how important flavors are to vapers looking to make the switch (as well as current vaper)
