  • Why Vaping is up in Britain but down in the US

    Why Vaping is up in Britain but down in the US

    The number of vapers in Great Britain has topped three million for the first time, while e-cigarette use in the United States continues to fall. From a survey of 12,000 British adults, charity group Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) estimates that e-cigarette users increased 10% between 2017 and 2018, up from 2.9 to 3.2 million. 3.2 million vapers represents almost five percent of Britain’s population. Across the Atlantic, meanwhile, the number of e-cigarette users is falling. The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that the number of US adults who tried vaping rose between 2014 and 2016...

  • Vapers Rise To Over 3 Million In UK

    Vapers Rise To Over 3 Million In UK

    SMOKERS in the UK are turning to e-cigarettes in their droves – with the number of vapers topping 3 million. New figures show e-cigarettes users have quadrupled in the country in just five years with an estimated 3.2 million vapers compared to just 700,000 in 2012. The results of the new survey for Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) published today (Tuesday) is further proof the gap in the number of people using e-cigarettes compared to tobacco is closing, with the number of smokers in the country currently estimated at 7.4 million. YouGov surveyed over 12,000 adults for ASH, with...

  • Call For Low-Cost Vaping In Poor Countries

    Call For Low-Cost Vaping In Poor Countries

    SMOKERS in the developing world should have low-cost e-cigarettes made available to them, researchers say, to help them quit their deadly habit. The urgent need for the price of vaping to be reduced in the developing world was also branded a “human rights issue” at a leading industry conference in London. Experts agreed smokers in poor countries are currently unlikely to be able to afford nicotine-based products to help them quit and vaping products should therefore be made more attainable. There are currently 1.1 billion smokers in the world with six million dying each year as a direct result of...

  • Juul Plans New Technology To Help Vapers Quit E-Cigs

    Juul Plans New Technology To Help Vapers Quit E-Cigs

    E-cigarette maker Juul claims it is planning new technology - which will help users to quit vaping. Juul’s co-founder and Chief Product Officer James Monsees told a technology conference this week how a new “connected” device is planned for 2019, which will allow vapers to wean themselves off the product. The new vape equipment, which is pending FDA approval in the US, will see users connect the e-cigarette to their phone where they will be able to personalize the product to how they want to use it. Speaking at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco, Monsees explained the new vape will...

  • Free E-cigs Can Reduce Smoking Rate

    Free E-cigs Can Reduce Smoking Rate

    New research published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health shows that the free provision of electronic cigarettes can help bring down smoking rates. In an attempt to convince legislators to offer quitters free e-cigs, researchers in Glasgow, Scotland found that giving tobacco users vape kits helped them smoke fewer cigarettes and have more ‘smoke-free days’ each month. The 90-day trial also resulted in 37% of the 72 adult smokers involved in the study abstaining from cigarettes completely. “Our data show that it is possible to facilitate significant behavioural change on the part of smokers as a...

  • Is Vaping Good or Bad For Your Teeth?

    Is Vaping Good or Bad For Your Teeth?

    Vaping is still quite new and there are still many things that people disagree on. One is whether vaping is good or bad for your teeth. This is a tricky subject, because there are elements of truth in each camp. Because you are not using tar or tobacco in e-cigarettes, many people assume that you won’t get the same side effects as smoking tobacco. But the nicotine in e-liquid and vape juice can still cause problems for your smile. In this blog post we try to settle this argument once and for all. What does smoking do to your teeth...

  • Cole Bishop just failed. What now?

    The much-vaunted Cole-Bishop Amendment was voted down on Sunday. The Cole Bishop amendment would have grandfathered all vaping products that were on the market on 8/8 last year, and exempted them from PMTAs. As things stand, then, we’re back on the FDA’s regulatory countdown; although the countdown was (perhaps not coincidentally) pushed back by 3 months on Monday. This is not to say, however, that things are the same as they were six months ago. A few things have become clear to me over the last couple of weeks through conversations with people deeply involved in the regulatory process. These...

  • Did the UK just become the world's most vape-friendly country?

    Did the UK just become the world's most vape-friendly country?

    A shock announcement on Friday has confirmed the UK as the world’s most vape-friendly country. Just three weeks before the door closes for manufacturers to submit notifications under the new regulations, the MHRA announced that they would no longer require full ingredient disclosure from e-liquid manufacturers. It’s a move that will delight those who struggled to get their flavor suppliers to give up trade secrets but infuriate those who have invested a small fortune on toxicological work that now seems redundant. We anticipate that many more US e-liquid brands will now consider the UK as a territory worth doing business...

    Stanton Glantz grilled by Regulator Watch

    Professor Stanton Glantz, ardent opponent of vaping, has engaged in the first interview (that I know of) by a vaping supporter. Brent Stafford questioned Glantz over a 10 minute Skype session for his show, and the video (part 1) is available on Youtube Glantz's cites three main reasons for his opposition to vaping: He believes they are 40 to 60% safer than smoking which, he contends, is not very safe considering the dangers of smoking. He believes most smokers do not make the full transition, instead becoming "dual users" He believes vaping is attracting "gigantic numbers of kids who probably would never pick...
