  • Vaping Slashes Youth Smoking Rates

    Vaping Slashes Youth Smoking Rates

    YOUTH smoking has fallen three times faster since the emergence of vaping, a new study has confirmed. The long-term decline in youth and young adults having a deadly cigarette habit has accelerated in the US since e-cigarettes became popular in 2014, according to research published in the Tobacco Control journal. Entitled “Examining the relationship of vaping to smoking initiation among US youth and young adults: a reality check”, the study was led by public health experts Professors David Levy, Ken Warner and Australian Ron Borland. The research, which used publicly available data to study the trends, revealed: “There was a...

  • Call For "Shake And Vape" Products Crackdown

    Call For "Shake And Vape" Products Crackdown

    BOSSES of leading vape companies have called for an urgent worldwide crackdown on “shake and vape” fluids found on the internet. Following an investigation in Britain’s The Times newspaper this week which discovered e-cigarette products resembling sweet treats and containing potentially dangerous chemicals are being sold on Amazon, industry figures are again urging the UK government to take action. “Shake and vape” fluids currently escape rules for tobacco and e-cigarette products because they contain no nicotine themselves. Instead, the bottles that are marketed to mimic fizzy drinks, candy or cakes, are designed for customers to mix with a $1 shot...

  • Vaping Prevents Long-Term Relapse

    Vaping Prevents Long-Term Relapse

    NEW research shows vaping prevents smokers from having a long-term relapse – even if they try a cigarette. Ex smokers don’t lapse for long if they’ve swapped to e-cigarettes and crucially don’t see it as “game over” for their quit attempt if they briefly re-try tobacco again, an investigation by British university researchers has found. The findings, funded by Cancer Research UK and published in the medical journal Drug and Alcohol Review, show vaping actively encourages not just smoking cessation, but long-term relapse prevention. Lead researcher Dr Caitlin Notley from University of East Anglia's Norwich Medical School, who conducted the...

    Vape Plan For Tenants Facing Cigarette Ban

    SMOKERS who live in public housing could face a smoking ban in their own homes and urged to vape instead, under new plans being considered in the UK. Following a recent report which revealed smoking is twice as common and “highly concentrated” in council-owned properties and estates, tenants of new housing blocks may be forced to stop smoking cigarettes under new proposals, it has been revealed. Politicians have suggested smokers be handed vaping kits by housing associations if the idea comes into force to help ease tenant's withdrawal symptoms and manage their nicotine addiction .

    Politicians Call For Vaping At Work

    POLITICIANS have called for vaping to be allowed in the workplace – with the UK's Houses of Parliament leading the way as a vape-friendly zone, it has been revealed. In a drive to make e-cigarettes more acceptable at places of work in Britain - and given separate rules to smoking - a group of MPs (Members of Parliament) have called for new policies to be drawn up to help address common “misunderstandings” about the practice. Members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Vaping (APPGV) agreed designated vaping areas inside offices should be considered along with employers allowing e-cigarette use in...

  • FDA’s New Flavor Rules Under Fire

    FDA’s New Flavor Rules Under Fire

    AMERICA’S new restrictions on the sale of e-cigarette flavors have come under fire by both anti and pro vapers. The U.S. government's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that while it won’t implement a ban on flavored vape juice and pods from stores and gas stations, as originally expected in its drive to restrict underage vaping, all shops must now “police” themselves. Stores will be expected to implement closed-off, over-18 areas instead, which would be inaccessible to teenagers, where fruit and candy flavors will be sold. Under the new laws, tobacco, menthol and mint flavors will remain unrestricted and...

    Smokers Should Hang Out With Vapers To Quit, Research Reveals

    SMOKERS wanting to quit their cigarette habit have been urged to spend time with people who vape, following new research funded by Cancer Research UK. Scientists at University College London, who conducted the study, found that smokers who spend time with e-cigarette users were 20 times more likely to try and ditch tobacco for good. Over one in four cigarette smokers in the survey said they were regularly in close contact with e-cigarettes in the past year, with around a third (32.3 per cent) of those admitting they had tried to quit through vaping in the past year, according to...

    'Artificial Intelligence' Installed In Schools To Catch Vapers

    SCHOOLS across America are increasingly installing Artifical Intelligence in bathrooms to catch young vapers, it has been revealed. Pro-vapers have slammed the latest extreme measures in response to a so-called vaping “epidemic” sweeping the US, saying underage use of e-cigarettes has been vastly over-exaggerated by the media and campaign groups. But over 200 schools in 23 American states and Canada have installed special AI devices, which are trained to detect the water vapour signatures coming from vaping pens, e-cigarettes and other vaping paraphernalia. Its manufacturers claim it is now receiving 20 new inquiries a day from schools. The Fly Sense...

  • Smoking Alternatives Hit By New UK Tax

    Smoking Alternatives Hit By New UK Tax

    THE UK government is set to introduce a tax on heated tobacco for the first time. In the 2018 Budget announced this week, “heat not burn” smoking alternatives, which include brands such as Philip Morris's iQOS, will be taxed at the same rate as hand-rolling tobacco from April 2019. Britain’s The Mirror newspaper discovered the “hidden” measure after painstakingly trawling through the Budget’s red book, after it was released by Chancellor Philip Hammond on Tuesday (October 30th). Duty on rolling tobacco amounts to around £7 for the smallest (30g) packs, while under the new tobacco duty, prices of cigarettes will...

    Marlboro Makers Slammed For Taking Vape Pods Off The Market

    MARLBORO makers Altria has pulled its e-cigarette pods from the market - which critics claim is an attempt to get their biggest rival Juul to follow suit. Altria Group Inc announced on Thursday it would also be discontinuing the sale of most of its flavored e-cigarettes in response to the US Food and Drink Administration's (FDA) drive to stop underage vaping. Altria's brands, MarketTen Elite and Apex, represent just nine per cent of the American market, which is dominated by Juul Labs, currently under fire for sparking a so-called "epidemic" of vaping use among teenagers. But critics say Altria has...
