On September 21st, 2017, Scotland’s National Health Service officially announced that vaping is far less harmful than smoking. Dr. Andrew Fraser, Director of Public Health Science at NHS Scotland stated:
“Recent research has shown an emerging perception among the general public that e-cigarettes are just as harmful to health as tobacco is. This is not the case – we know from current evidence that vaping carries less risk than smoking tobacco. So it would be a good thing if smokers used e-cigarettes instead of smoking tobacco.
To be absolutely clear, e-cigarettes are useful for public health and health service purposes only as a potential route towards stopping smoking completely. Access to e-cigarettes needs to be controlled carefully; they are not products for children or non-smokers.”
Cancer Research UK has previously promoted vaping as a healthier alternative to smoking, but this is the first official government endorsement of vaping. This news is a huge leap forward towards e-cigarettes being designated as an official smoking cessation tool. For further information, please visit this link.
