International Health Bodies & Governments that support vaping as a suitable alternative to smoking
Studies on Vaping
Public Health England
"Our new review reinforces the view that vaping is a fraction of the risk of smoking, at least 95% less harmful, and of negligible risk to bystanders. Yet, over half of smokers either falsely believe that vaping is as harmful as smoking or just don't know."
U.S Food & Drugs Administration
"Make no mistake. We see the possibility for ENDS products like e-cigarettes and other novel forms of nicotine-delivery to provide a potentially less harmful alternative for currently addicted individual adult smokers who still want to get access to satisfying levels of nicotine without many of the harmful effects that come with the combustion of tobacco."
Government of Canada
"Vaping is less harmful than smoking. Adults can now legally get vaping products with nicotine as a less harmful option to smoking. Switching from tobacco cigarettes to vaping products will reduce a person's exposure to many toxic and cancer-causing chemicals"
U.K College of Royal Physicians
"Available data suggests that e-cigarette health risks are unlikely to exceed 5% of those associated with smoked tobacco products, and may well be substantially lower. In the UK, harm reduction is a recognized element of comprehensive tobacco control. E-cigarettes are effective in helping people to stop smoking."
Cancer Research U.K
"Evidence so far indicates that e-cigarettes are far less harmful than tobacco and may help smokers cut down or quit. We do not believe there is justification for an indoor ban, on the basis of potential harm to bystanders from 2nd hand vapor or that they renormalize smoking."
National Health Service Scotland
"Smoking kills. Helping people to smoking completely is our priority. There is now agreement based on current evidence that e-cigarettes is definitely less harmful than smoking tobacco. It would be a good thing if smokers used them instead of tobacco."
British Medical Association
"There are clear potential benefits to e-cigarette use in reducing the substantial harms associated with smoking, and a growing consensus that they are significantly less harmful than tobacco use"
