Thanks to a study by UCL, House of Vapes was featured on Channel 5 News on the 28th October 2019. Let’s dive down and see what’s the latest in the vaping news.
Addiction (funded by Cancer Research UK) has found that since 2011, E-cigarettes has helped increase the success rate of quitting smoking. “It is estimated that in 2017 around 50,700 to 69,930 smokers had stopped,” said in the study.
The Smoking Toolkit Study carried out the research by doing monthly household surveys of individuals aged 16 and older in England since 2006. The data was based on approximately 1,200 past-year smokers each quarter between 2006 and 2017 which totalled around 50,498.
The study analysed the association between current use and use of e-cigarettes whilst attempting to quit and quit success rate. “There were statistical adjustments for seasonality, trends, population-level policies, spending on tobacco mass media and the affordability of tobacco”.
Research so far shows that vaping is less harmful than smoking tobacco, vaping can also help people who are looking to stop smoking which it is for over 50,000 people in 2017. We will stand by that vaping is less harmful than smoking tobacco, however, vaping is not risk-free as we do not know the long-term impacts (if any). Therefore, we do not recommend vaping to those who are not smokers.
