Hello fam! Welcome to another week. Lets see what was the news in the vaping world this week.
Why Is The CDC Lying About E-Cigarettes?
Jacob Sullum, Forbes contributor makes a comparison between ecigarettes and vaping information shared by the Centres for Disease and Prevention (CDC) and scientific studies. From his comparison he feels that the CDC is misleading guys when it classifies ecigarettes as tobacco products by making claims such as “there was no decline in overall tobacco use between 2011 and 2014,” despite studies showing that smoking rates had declined in 2014 while vaping rates had increased in the same year. By making such remarks the CDC is clearly referring to ecigarettes as tobacco products and missing the point on how they are assisting in the fight against smoking.
This (increase in vaping) is a really bad thing. This is another generation being hooked by the tobacco industry. It makes me angry.
CDC Director Tom Frieden said.
What are your thoughts on this? Read the rest of Sullum’s piece here.
E-cigarette users trying to quit smoking should vape every day, studies suggest
Researchers find those using ecigarettes daily, especially ones with refillable tanks, made more effort to give up over a year than infrequent users. Two new research papers suggest that ecigarettes may help smokers trying to kick the habit, but they will have to vape every day, instead of infrequently.
Most smokers want to stop but are struggling, and disadvantaged and deprived groups are struggling most. If you are using an e-cigarette, use it more frequently and stop smoking cigarettes as fast as you can. If cigalikes don’t work, try something else.
Prof Ann McNeill of King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, where both studies were based, said.
