With 100,000 deaths from smoking each year, in the UK alone, quitting is one of the most important steps people can take to improve their health.

With almost 3 million vapers in the UK and the lowest number of people smoking ever recorded, the two are now starting to be linked. A study undertaken by the University College London (UCL) and Cancer Research UK show that smokers are much more likely to quit for good when using e-cigarettes as a quitting aid.

England is sometimes singled out as being too positive in its attitude to e-cigarettes. This data suggests that our relatively liberal regulation of e-cigarettes is probably justified.
