Public Health England(PHE) has recently published a research report finding that e-cigarettes are 95 percent less harmful than traditional smokes. The UK Department of Health sponsored the PHE study to cut through the misinformation and identify the real risks. They sought to answer important questions such as:
- What is the relative harm of various nicotine products?
- Are eCigarettes a gateway into smoking?
- Are eCigarettes an effective tool for cutting down or quitting altogether?
- What are the main risks?
- What impact is misinformation having?
One of the review’s independent authors Professor Ann McNeill from King’s College London commented that “E-cigarettes could be a game changer in public health, in particular by reducing the enormous health inequalities caused by smoking”.
Unfortunately, the review also says that even though vaping is far safer than smoking the number of people who believe e-cigarettes are just as dangerous is increasing. Most likely due to campaigns of misinformation and anti-vaping propaganda.
