Mil­lions vape, rather than puff

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - WORLD -

London – An es­ti­mated 3.2 mil­lion peo­ple in Bri­tain are now users of e-cig­a­rettes, or vapes, com­pared with about 7.4 mil­lion who smoke to­bacco cig­a­rettes, ac­cord­ing to data from a sur­vey con­ducted by an anti-smok­ing char­ity.

Among those who vape, more than half are peo­ple who have switched to elec­tronic cig­a­rettes af­ter quit­ting to­bacco, the sur­vey by Ac­tion on Smok­ing and Health (ASH) found, and 40% are try­ing to quit.

Ex­perts at Pub­lic Health Eng­land say va­p­ing is about 95% less harm­ful than smok­ing. – Reuters
