    UK Government advisor backs vaping to achieve smoke-free 2030

    A top advisor to the UK Government has said that without drastic action – including the promotion of vaping as a less harmful alternative to smoking – the country will miss its smoke-free 2030 target by 7 years.

    Dr Javed Khan OBE – a senior NHS leader and former CEO of the Barnardos children’s charity – was asked to review Britain’s progress towards its target of a smoking prevalence of less than 5% by 2030.

    Quote from Dr Javed Khan OBE

    Khan’s report to the Department of Health makes for critical recommendations:

    • Increase investment - around £125 million in smoke-free 2030 policies should fund accessible stop smoking support; while Khan also recommends implementing a tobacco industry levy in order to raise the money.
    • Increase the age of sale

    US RAPPER Doja Cat put vaping firmly in the spotlight at the 64th Grammy Awards in Las Vegas this month as she boldly vaped on the red carpet before receiving an award for her contribution to music.

    The star - who was nominated for a staggering eight Grammys at this year's event and took home the Best Pop Duo Performance award - turned heads for accessorizing her designer Versace gown with a vape pen as she appeared at the star-studded event.

    But despite it being cited as a bold move, Doja isn't the first musician to appear in public vaping, with many fellow singers attributing it to helping them make a switch away from smoking.

  • Glastonbury Disposable Vape Ban
    Glastonbury Disposable Vape Ban

    Glastonbury, the UK's most renowned summer festival, has made a significant decision regarding disposable vapes. With a staggering capacity of 200,000 attendees, the festival has decided to ban the use of disposable vapes due to concerns over their environmental impact. This move has ignited a broader conversation about the recycling and disposal of disposable vapes in the UK. 

    Neil McLaren, CMO at vaping.com, acknowledges the importance of addressing this issue and applauds Glastonbury for taking a stand. However, he believes that the ban should also extend to cigarettes, considering their well-documented harm and status as the world's most littered item. In this article, we explore the environmental implications of disposable vapes and offer a greener alternative for vapers concerned about the festival ban.

    How Do Vapes Work?

    In this article, we’ll take you through some of the main types of vapes and how they work.

    If you’re new to vaping and just getting started, you’re bound to have questions around how a vape works.

    Global charities and health campaigners are calling on smokers to quit their deadly cigarette habit on World No Tobacco Day.

    Cancer Research UK has released new analysis which estimates one person dies every five minutes from tobacco in Britain and has called on the government to do more to help smokers quit.

    It has launched a petition to coincide with World No Tobacco Day today, asking for the Prime Minister to establish a “Smokefree Fund ” which would help pay for the cost of tobacco control, which it says is seriously underfunded.

    Meanwhile, a group of leading tobacco harm reduction groups including World Vapers’ Alliance have been highlighting vaping’s role in cutting death and disease from smoking with the launch of World Vape Day yesterday (May 30th).

    Now in its fourth year, the event saw the worldwide vaping community champion global harm reduction efforts and the benefits of using e-cigarettes - which Public Health England deems

  1. Leading Doctor Questions ‘Metals Found in Vaping’ research

    Leading Doctor Questions ‘Metals Found in Vaping’ research

    A LEADING doctor has poured cold water on a report which claims e-cigarette users are inhaling significant amounts of lead and toxic metals.

    Dr Konstantinos Farsalinos, a research fellow and cardiologist who has published over 50 studies and articles on smoking, tobacco harm and e-cigarettes, has questioned the findings by John Hopkins University which claimed dangerous levels of toxins - including lead, chromium and arsenic – are being inhaled by vapers.

    The study published last week triggered a wealth of media reports, which went on to claim absorbing toxic metals could be linked to heart and brain damage.

    But Dr Farsalinos says having looked at the research by the American university the level of metals actually found in the body were so low that in some cases you would have to vape more than 100ml of vape juice a day (with 15ml being an amount used by a heavy vaper per day) to exceed the limits set by the US Food and Drugs Administration.

  2. Ex Smokers Choose Fruit Flavours Over Tobacco

    Ex Smokers Choose Fruit Flavours Over Tobacco

    EX SMOKERS who switched from cigarettes to vaping are more likely to use fruit flavours over tobacco, new research has revealed.

    While many tobacco smokers initiated e-cigarette use by choosing flavours which mimicked their old habit - namely tobacco or menthol - over time more are switching to fruit, candy, desert or chocolate flavours and haven't returned to cigarettes.

    The number of first-time vapers choosing non-tobacco flavours to help transition from cigarettes has also rocketed over the past few years.

    The revealing statistics are being seen by the vaping community as vital in proving to the US government and pressure organizations that fruit and candy flavoured vape juice is very much used - and has real health benefits - to ex smokers at a time when cities and states are banning flavours, believing them to be sold as a tool to entice young people into taking up e-cigarettes.

    Crackdown on E-Liquid Packaging Which Mimics Food

    The FDA is cracking down on vape juice labels, which could be mistaken for food or candy.

    The government department sent 13 warning letters last week to manufacturers, distributors and retailers who are packaging or advertising their vape juice as kid-friendly food products.

    The e-juice labels under fire were found to be nearly identical to recognizable edible items found in retail stores including juice boxes, candy and cookies.

    The FDA's crackdown is just one of many measures which the vaping industry is currently seeing almost weekly.

    The action comes less than a week after the FDA announced it sent a formal request to JUUL Labs requesting information on its popular e-cigarette brand, including documents relating to its product marketing.

    The vape manufacturers who have now been hit with warning letters have been singled out for safety concerns, since the products look like food or drinks commonly consumed by

    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.

    Vaping Faces Big Tax Hit In Trump Trade War

    VAPING is set to be hit hard by a new US government tariff which would see a 25 per cent tax hike on imports from China.

    The potential impact would not just affect consumers buying over the internet but vape shops across US towns and cities who are already struggling to cope with high taxes on e-cigarettes and vape goods.

    The new tariff is to come into affect imminently if a trade war, which started on Friday (July 6th), between America and China continues.

    Earlier this year, President Trump warned he would implement tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports, saying his administration believed Beijing had unfairly acquired US intellectual property for decades and needed to pay the price. After slapping a 25 per cent tax on over 800 exported goods at the end of last week, Beijing has now retaliated by doing the same.

    Trump threatened to increase the scope to $450 billion if China started taxing in retaliation and with a trade war now in place,

    Motorists Who Vape Face Prosecution Under New Laws

    MOTORISTS face losing their license if they are caught vaping behind the wheel – because it “obscures their vision”.

    Police have warned anyone driving and distracted by smoking e-cigarettes could be fined thousands of pounds or even banned, under new UK laws.

    Although vaping while driving isn’t illegal, officers say a vape cloud could momentarily blind drivers long enough to have a crash, according to Britain’s Telegraph newspaper, resulting in prosecution.

    Drivers could face a fine of up to £2,500 as well as incur three to nine points on a driving license and even disqualification in serious circumstances.

    Sergeant Carl Knapp of the Sussex Road Policing Unit warned: "The smoke caused by vapes are a distraction and the consequences of them can be dire, all it takes is a moment to become distracted and potentially cause a crash and even worse, a fatality."
    He added: “I strongly advise people to pay 100 per cent attention to

    E-Cigarette Summit 5 - the return of the Summit

    The fifth E-Cigarette Summit took place at London’s Royal Society last Friday. For those interested in the true state of global science and regulations on vaping products (and, increasingly, other alternative nicotine products), the Summit is the calendar-event of note.

    The following is my personal take on the overall themes, and I’ll start off with a TLDR listicle:

    1. Vaping typically produces well under 5% of the HPHCs of smoking, likely even under 1%…..
    2. With the important caveat that cloud-chasing type exposures have not been studied widely.
    3. Regardless, it’s always possible that there’s an as-yet-unidentified interaction between those small quantities of HPHC that are present and which causes a problem…

    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 all outside areas unless there is a legitimate safety or professional reason not to, according to UK news agency Press Association.

    There should also be guidelines for the “reasonable vaping etiquette expected from vapers”.

    Judge Caught Vaping Through Murder Trial

    A JUDGE has hit the headlines after vaping his way through a high-profile murder trial.

    Justice Vincent Del Giudice was spotted covertly enjoying an e-cigarette as he presided over a string of cases at the Brooklyn Supreme Court including the ongoing murder trial of accused “Brooklyn Ripper” Daniel St. Hubert.

    During the hearing of St. Hubert, who is standing trial for allegedly murdering a child and seriously injuring another four years ago, the judge of 38 years appeared to routinely hold his hands up to his face as though stroking his goatee beard in contemplation.

    But photos of Del Giudice show a blue light peeking out from his closed fist, showing he was secretly using a vaporizer.

    “Everybody knows about it, but nobody says anything,” one court worker told the New York Post newspaper.

  14. Vaping Set To Wipe Out Tobacco Bonds

    Vaping Set To Wipe Out Tobacco Bonds

    THE rapid rise in e-cigarette sales is threatening to wipe out tobacco bonds sooner than expected, it has been revealed.

    Tobacco bonds were forecast by many analysts to begin defaulting within the next decade but as more Americans swap cigarettes for vaping – far quicker than anticipated - some are predicted to default in less than five years.

    In 1998, big tobacco companies agreed to make annual payments to most U.S. states to cover medical costs for sick smokers.

    Many states opted to securitize that stream of money by selling municipal bonds backed by the expected payments from tobacco companies.

    However, the payments are tied to smoking rates. Fewer shipments of cigarettes means less money to back the bonds - and smoking rates have been falling.

    This means that when a bond defaults, the bond issuer - in this case the US states - fails to make its annual payment to the bond holder.

    It typically occurs when the bond issuer has run

    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 the academic survey published in the BMC Medicine journal this week.

    In comparison, around a quarter (26.8 per cent) of smokers who don’t have regular contact with vapers,

    British Tobacco Firm To Go Bigger On Vaping

    British tobacco firm Imperial Brands has revealed it is to go “all-in” on vaping after a better than expected full-year revenue and profit.

    The maker of Gauloises and Winston cigarettes is now shifting its focus towards the vaping market and is preparing to launch a heated tobacco product in Japan in early 2019, according to a report by Reuters news agency.

    Imperial Brands, which reported a net revenue of $39.83 billion for the full-year ending September 30, is also planning to increase investment in its e-cigarette brand blu by around 100 million pounds ($131 million) over the coming six months.

    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 flavoured 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 more to gain than lose by pulling some of it's vape products.

    South Korea Sued Over Dangerous Vape Claims

    TOBACCO giant and vape manufacturers Philip Morris Korea Inc is suing the South Korean government after it claimed their e-cigarettes contained a number of harmful substances.

    The billion dollar global firm has filed a lawsuit for the disclosure of data from the country’s Ministry of Food and Drug Safety after it released a report in June which claimed to have found five cancer-causing substances in their electronic cigarettes during tests.

    The study claimed to have found not just harmful substances but the level of tar exceeded that of regular cigarettes in two of their heated smoking devices, including Philip Morris Inc (PMI)’s leading iQOS brand.

    PMI claims the findings strongly contradict results from studies in Germany, Japan and China, which concluded they were safer than regular cigarettes and said it had thereby encouraged the country’s millions of smokers to stick to their habit.

    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 tobacco control and public health, the world has changed significantly since the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control was signed in 2003.  It is impossible to ignore or dismiss the rise of Alternative Nicotine Delivery Systems (ANDS),” they write

    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.

    For a better chance of success, Stoptober offers participants an online guide that directs people to e-cigarette sellers in their area and a "Personal Quit Plan" to help find the right support.
