There’s been a lot of talk about the regulation of e-cigarettes and vaporizers alike. And as far as the government is concerned the jury is still out on the long-term effects of e-liquid vaporizer use. But we recently passed a major mile-stone in the research on e-cigarettes.
Yesterday, 8/19/15, front pages all across Europe were talking about the latest development in the fight to legitimize and regulate e-cigarette and e-liquid vaporizer use. For fans of vaporizers, it was a blessing to see that the Public Health England had published a 111-page report on vaporizers claiming that Vaping is 95% Less Hazardous than Smoking. While the implications this will carry over into the U.S.’s views on vaporizers is still unclear, The American Vaping Association is pushing for U.S. officials to take a second look at the effects e-liquid vaporizers and e-cigarettes in light of this staggering report.
And there are even more benefits claimed by the report published by the Public Health England. Some of the major claims they reported included that there is currently no evidence suggesting that using vaporizers and e-cigarettes is acting as a route into smoking for children and non-smokers, and that vaporizers may have actually contributed to a falling of smoking rates among adults and young people. In addition, the Public Health England reports that nearly half of the U.K. Population is unaware of the benefits of vaporizer and e-cigarette use, though this is largely due to disagreement on the claims world-wide.
Returning to the American Vaping Association, they are beginning to put pressure on more than just the U.S. government. They are tackling such associations as The American Lung Association, The American Cancer Society, The Center for Disease Control & Prevention and Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, claiming that they need to release corrective statements in regards to, what they consider to be, inaccurate and misleading statements against the effects vaping.
For many, this has been seen as a major victory, not only for those that enjoy vaping, but for public health and awareness in general. Personally, we hope for a more in-depth reassessment of the long-term and short-term effects of vaping. The jury may still be out on whether or not vaping is in-fact a healthier alternative, but the Public Health England’s report is a step in the right direction as far as in-depth analysis is concerned.
