    How to Get Your Parents to Vape

    Sometimes, parents need to be parented. If your mom or dad has a decades-old cigarette addiction, worrying about their health can feel like a full-time job. We have all told our parents to reset the WiFi and to delete those dodgy apps from their smartphones. Now we can help them out again by telling them about the latest technology designed to help adults switch from smoking tobacco. We’re up against it when it comes to spreading the benefits of e-cigarettes. Every day, there are new sensationalized media reports about epidemics and stealthy new ‘USB-drive’ vapes.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    How E-Cigarettes Curbed Riots in UK Prisons

    Vaping popularity has skyrocketed in UK prisons, with more than 65,000 device and e-liquid sales each week. It is estimated that 33,000 prisoners now get their nicotine fix from e-cigarettes after the Ministry of Justice permitted inmates to vape in their cells. Vaping is seen as something of a compromise for prisoners after the government banned smoking last year. This ban led to a sharp increase in the number of mini riots and incidents of violence in prisons. A Prison Service spokesperson told the Metro newspaper: "All closed prisons in England and Wales are now smoke free reducing the risk of...
