New Study Finds Indoor Vaping Unlikely to be Harmful to Bystanders

25th April 2016

Only one publication has so far picked up this e-cig study story, and that’s the Huffington post. The information given is sparse, but describes a research collaboration between Kaunas University of Technology in Lithuania, EMPA Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, ETH Zurich the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and Fontem Ventures. The researchers found that second hand vapour is probably not harmful to bystanders. The team took a detailed look at the chemical particles that are exhaled from e-cigarettes, and charted exactly what was emitted. They studied closed-system e-cigarettes, (i.e. disposable e-cigarettes made by the tobacco industry in the main),…

Scotland’s Biggest Health Board to Allow Vaping on Site

21st April 2016

E-cigarettes can now be used on NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde (NHSGGC) grounds by patients, visitors and staff, in a bid they say to further cut smoking rates. The e- cigarettes can only be used on Hospital grounds though, they are still banned in the hospital buildings. The change in policy has come around in an effort, so writes the Herald, to try and change the behaviour of a few hardcore smokers that still smoke at hospital entrances. It is hoped that by allowing vaping, they will change their habits. Director of Public Health, Dr Emilia Crighton said, “Tobacco is still the most…

Forward Thinking Hospital Chief to Allow Vaping?

11th April 2016

Chris Long from the Hull Royal Infirmary believes e-cigarettes could be an answer for the hospital. Writing about e-cigarettes, the Hull Daily Mail quote Mr Long as saying that attempting to get people to stop smoking during stressful admissions to hospital "doesn't work". He said, "I think a much more humane, and probably liberal, approach to the use of e-cigarettes in and around hospital would be a significant help to those patients. "I have a view that many people find e-cigarettes a much more satisfactory substitute than chewing gum or patches. I am not aware of any evidence that they create harm." Smoking is…

Britons Spent 800 Million GBP on Vape Products in 2015

7th April 2016

From 340 vape shops in 2012 to now over 1500, vaping is absolutely main stream. So writes the Economist in a recent article that tries to explain many aspects of vaping. Quoting information from Euromoniter, a research firm, the Economist “estimates that Britons spent around £800m ($1.2 billion) on “vaping products” in 2015, up from £50m in 2011. The French, by contrast, spent only £290m and the Germans £230m. Analysts reckon the British love e-cigarettes mainly because they are cheap; heavy taxes make ordinary cigarettes in Britain among the most expensive in the world. Vaping can cost 90% less a month…

Is E-cigarette Legislation Backfiring?

4th April 2016

Writing in the Winston Salem Journal earlier this month, journalist Richard Craver opens his article regarding this, with the words, “A second Ivy League study has found a connection between higher age requirements for purchasing electronic cigarettes and increased use of traditional cigarettes by youths.” Seems the gateway theory that vaping leads to smoking is very much NOT the case, and depriving teenagers that already smoke of a viable, less harmful alternative is actually doing more harm. Two studies have now found that banning under 18’s from purchasing e-cigarettes has seen an increase in youth smoking. Craver writes, “The Weill Cornell study reviewed…

It’s all in the maths with e-cigarettes?

31st March 2016

A news article this week in Eurekalert.org is claiming that smoking is still cheaper than vaping. They state that a recent study, taking in over 45 countries found that in 44 of them, it was cheaper to smoke. They also found that the belief that vaping is cheaper, is erroneously leading regulators to want to tax e-cigs. They write, “The researchers found that on average, the price of a pack of combustible tobacco cigarettes was just over half the price of a disposable e-cigarette ($5.00 and $8.50, respectively). They also found that while the liquid nicotine used to refill e-cigarettes can cost…
