  • Vapers Get Health Insurance Boost

    Vapers Get Health Insurance Boost

    VAPERS are to enjoy the same insurance rates as non-smokers for the first time, according to a UK report. E-cigarette users will save thousands of pounds in health insurance after years of being put in the same category as smokers. The change comes after a Public Health England report earlier this year showed vaping to be 95 per cent less harmful than cigarettes. Vape advocates immediately called for a subsequent change to insurance premiums to reflect vaping being a far healthier alternative to smoking. Earlier this year, it was reported that life insurance had started to drop after experts revealed...

    Nicotine Patch Inventor Questions FDA’s Youth Vaping Strategy

    “If anything, restricting e-cigarettes may incentivize youth to try combustible cigarettes instead.”  The man who invented nicotine patches to help smokers quit has raised serious doubts about the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) strategy to combat youth vaping. Last month, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb launched a raft of new enforcement measures as he deplored a new youth vaping ‘epidemic’. New measures included a clampdown on shops selling to minors and the possibility that some products - particularly flavored e-liquids - could be removed from shelves. While Dr. Gottlieb acknowledged that e-cigarettes are a helpful smoking alternative for adults, he said...

    70 Experts Urge WHO to Embrace E-cigarettes

    More than seventy public health experts and anti-tobacco campaigners have penned a joint letter to the World Health Organization (WHO), urging leaders to take a more measured view of the benefits of vaping. The open letter was sent to WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus ahead of this week’s conference of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) in Geneva. The 72 signatories, who have no links to the tobacco industry, urged the WHO to “embrace tobacco harm reduction” and adopt a more positive approach to e-cigarettes and other technologies that can help fight smoking-related diseases. “In the field of...

    Stoptober Launches With Message: Vaping Is Key To Quitting Cigs

    A MASS quit smoking attempt is underway in the UK – with experts suggesting smokers vape instead of going “cold turkey” if they want to quit for good. Stoptober – a national campaign by Public Health England (PHE) – suggests if participants switch to e-cigarettes or other nicotine-replacement therapies – for 28 days, they are five times more likely to ditch their deadly smoking habit forever. As the awareness month launched yesterday (October 1st), health bosses warned only four per cent of people who quit with no replacement therapy in place will be able to successfully give up smoking tobacco...

    Global Vaping Community Calls On WHO To Change Stance On Vape Bans

    A GLOBAL coalition of vaping industry groups has called on the World Health Organisation to change its stance on allowing vaping to be banned. Advocacy groups from sixteen countries across North America, Europe, Asia and Australasia have joined forces to demand the public health agency reverse its stance, which allows some countries to make vaping illegal. At present, while WHO recognizes vaping’s potential for reducing smoking rates, the agency’s tobacco control group contradicts it by allowing member states to ban vaping products outright, should they wish to, as part of a tobacco control plan. Britain’s largest vaping body, the UK...

    English E-cig Success: One Smoker Quits Every 80 Seconds

    Almost 400,000 English smokers quit last year - that’s one every 80 seconds. As the country prepares for ‘Stoptober,’ health experts say that quitters using e-cigarettes and local support services have a 63% chance of success. The numbers speak for themselves. Although new smokers have taken up the habit and some ex-smokers have relapsed, there are now one million fewer smokers in England since 2014. Now, Public Health England (PHE), the Government’s health agency, is encouraging more smokers to get help. One in six of England’s 6.1 million smokers wants to quit, PHE says, but most try to go ‘cold...

    Australia’s Big Step to Legalize Vaping

    FDA’s Anti-Vape Bathroom Campaign Slammed

    EXPERTS have slammed a new government campaign to place posters on the “dangers” of e-cigarettes in 10,000 high school bathrooms across America. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced this week a new campaign to warn teens and young people off vaping in response to a so-called “epidemic” sweeping the nation, with a new package of disturbing commercials. But the ads placed in school washrooms as well as distributed across social media including Instagram, Facebook and Spotify, has already received a mixed response with some academics and pro-health campaigners branding the FDA's anti-vape drive as “irresponsible” and potentially ineffective...
