VAPERS in the UK have voted for their most-wanted e-cigarette flavour of the future – roast chicken.
The famous British roast dinner topped a poll run by (UK based vape business VIP) which surveyed Brits’ dream vape juices followed by three runner-ups; apple crumble, chocolate brownie and cheesy chips. The survey of 1,000 people, launched to coincide with the country’s e-cigarette awareness month VApril, found preferences varied based on location, gender and age. Londoners tended to prefer mango chutney, vapers from northern city Leeds preferred Diet Coke, while Millennials were keen on almond milk, garlic bread and Prosecco.

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.
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 sal

Vaping is as safe as nicotine patches for pregnant women wanting to switch from cigarettes and could be “more effective” according to new medical research.
The study has found that pregnant smokers were more likely to make a better transition away from smoking when using e-cigarettes than patches after four weeks.
The UK research, which involved 1,140 smokers who were around 15.7 weeks pregnant and smoked an average of 10 cigarettes a day, also revealed that:
“vaping did not pose any greater risk to mothers or babies during pregnancy than other nicotine replacement methods”.
The study published in Nature Medicine magazine is one of the first to look at the safety and efficacy of e-cigarettes amongst women who are pregnant.
It comes as Dr. Francesca Pesola, the author of the research at

A new scientific study has revealed that smokers who switch to vaping may be more likely to improve their health and well-being over those who choose cigarettes.
Research by the University of Washington has shown adult cigarette users who had shifted to vaping in their 30s reported to be more focused on “better health and wellbeing”.
Smokers who opt to vape may also have “more opportunities for healthy social engagement” - thus promoting “healthier ageing among nicotine users approaching midlife”, the study also found.
The research looked at 156 smokers and monitored changes in “health and social functioning” between the ages of 30 and 39.
Of the 156 study participants, 64% smoked

So, to help you find the best vape device for you, this guide outlines the different types of vape devices, as well as what they do and how they work.
First, we answer a few frequently asked questions relating to vaping...
How does vaping work?
Vaping is the act of inhaling vapour created by a vape device. Vaping is non-combustible, so is considered a cleaner alternative to smoking as it doesn’t involve the same chemicals and tar associated with burning tobacco.
What are the different styles of vaping?
Mouth-to-lung (MTL) and direct-to-lung (DTL) are the two styles of vaping.

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.

According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, e-cigarette aerosol generally contains fewer harmful chemicals than smoke from burned tobacco products 1.
As a less dangerous alternative to smoking, vaping has far more redeeming qualities than its combustible counterpart.
Not only is vaping less damaging to your lungs but there’s also no lingering smokey smell that clings to your clothes and breath after a cigarette. On top of that, there are countless different vape juices for you to take your pick from.
Vaping allows you to receive the same nicotine hit – or less – in an endlessly diverse mix of flavour options. So you’ll always be able to find a vape juice and device to suit your needs and style that you can enjoy.
To help you find the juice that fulfils all the needs that you may have, we’re here to take you through the different

As one of the most game-changing inventions of the past century, vaping is a non-combustible alternative to smoking that significantly reduces the harmful elements of combustible smoking, while still giving you that satisfying nicotine hit.
There is a lot to learn about vaping and the devices themselves. That’s why we have put together this informative vape guide, to tell you everything you need to know – from what vaping is and how to refill a vape pen, to the different kinds of vape kits and devices you can buy today.
So, let’s start with the basics of vaping.
What is vaping?
A vape device heats your choice of E-liquid and turns it into vapour. If your choice of vape juice has nicotine in it, this is what
Interest groups, the media and well-intentioned parents are fuelling a moral panic about underage ‘Juuling’.
Hungry for views, many news carriers have written countless stories about the ‘epidemic’ of vaping in schools. Some have even spread fanciful concerns about cocaine e-liquid.
One of the keen drivers behind the moral panic in America has been interest groups like Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. These groups want the FDA to bring in new restrictions that will damage vaping companies.

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 cost £10 for a packet of 20.
But experts say that the government's tax hike on tobacco will do little to discourage smokers with a better way of helping people quit to help develop and promote e-cigarettes and vaping instead.
Giles Roca of the Tobacco Manufacturers' Association said: "Tobacco taxes have in
Apologies to those who’ve been waiting for the videos from the 2016 E-Cigarette Summit, but I’m happy to announce that they are now published. The Summit was co-founded by E-Cigarette-Forum.com and Smooth Events back in 2013 and has been held annually since.
The E-Cigarette Summit is the top international science and public policy one-day conference on vaping, held at London’s Royal Society. This year’s event was more transatlantic in nature than previous years with a good number of American delegates and presenters in attendance.
If you only watch one video, please make it the Tom Miller video.
"It took great courage to be the first to do what you did worldwide. I thank you for that courage. It also takes great persistence. You have shown that and need to continue to show it. From my perspective, you are

SCHOOLS across America are increasingly installing Artificial 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 device, which uses machine-learned AI, was originally developed by Soter Technologies to detect bullying in school, since it also reacts to elevated sound levels that might indicate fighting. But it has quickly been brought in to monitor vaping instead as concerns among parents rise.
It works by using technology whi
It’s with great sadness that I learned Njoy filed for bankruptcy on Tuesday after two years of diminishing sales.
I came to know many of those involved with Njoy over the years. There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that this is a team motivated to the core to fulfil their founder’s mission: to create a world free of smoking.
And, let it be known, all vapers owe a HUGE debt to Njoy, or Sottera as the company is called. It was Sottera that forced back the FDA from impounding vaping products as unauthorised medicines, winning their case in 2010 and ultimately setting the stage for the industry that followed and flourishes today, despite the continued threat of regulatory oblivion.
Their Njoy king was revolutionary when it was release three years ago, selling $93 million through 2013. However, for numerous reasons the success didn’t persist and the tobacco industry, doubling down on their offerings, took over the market with their distribution strength and po
