    Why is the US Ignoring Plain Cigarette Packaging? 

    Cigarette branding is powerful stuff. Tobacco companies’ own research shows that half of smokers can’t distinguish one brand of cigarette from another in blind taste tests. “For smokers and especially for the decisive group of new, younger smokers, the consumer’s choice is dictated more by psychological image factors than by relatively minor differences in smoking characteristics.” That’s according to internal documents drawn up by British American 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

    Australia - one of the only western countries where nicotine vaping is effectively still banned - has taken an important step towards legalization.

    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...

    To Drop or Not: The Suorin Drop vs Air

    Suorin Showdown: The Suorin Drop vs Air They say you can’t judge a book by a cover, but when you see a vape pod that looks like a tiny pastel clamshell, can you really pass it up?

The Lowdown: The Suorin Drop and Suorin Air Despite both devices being made by Suorin, the two kits couldn’t be more different if they tried. To provide a proper examination of...

    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...
