Vaping bad and you feel confused?, Yes you will feel confused with all the rumors online. There is no scientific study to prove it. But now NHS Health Scotland has said that E-cigarettes are ‘definitely’ less harmful than smoking tobacco.
NHS Health Scotland said it wanted to ‘clarify’ confusion around the harms and benefits of vaping devices. The team of more than 20 organizations has signed up for this purpose which was led by NHS Health Scotland, but health experts said that using e-cigarettes while still smoking did not provide any health benefits. The organization statement published by Scotland’s national health education and promotion agency has agreed by the Scottish government, health boards, academia and charities such as the British Lung Foundation and Cancer Research UK.
There are estimated to be about 2.9 million people in the UK who use e-cigarettes. More than half of them have given up smoking tobacco, suggested by a recent study. Other research for Public Health England concluded that e-cigarettes were 95% less harmful than traditional cigarettes. However, about 9 million people still smoke tobacco in the UK despite the rise in e-cigarette use since 2012.
Dr Andrew Fraser, director of public health science at NHS Health Scotland, told BBC Scotland: E-cigarettes have been around for a number of years now and we are learning more and more about them but I think it is safe to say that they are a lot safer than traditional cigarettes. ‘If we are trying to help people make a decision about giving up smoking tobacco then e-cigarettes are a good option to consider.’
E-cigarettes contain nicotine which is addictive in itself and they contain a few number of other food grade vaporizing materials, now if you take it all around and compare it with the alternative they are a lot less harmful than traditional cigarettes which contain more then 4000 harmful chemicals. Ideally vaping would be used a way to give up smoking entirely and should not “double running” – taking both tobacco and e-cigarettes.
Last year, Scotland’s largest health board ruled that e-cigarettes could be used within the grounds of its hospitals. NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde decided to allow restricted use of the devices after new evidence that they helped tackle tobacco smoking.
Tobacco smoking was banned across all health grounds in Scotland in April 2015, but health boards were given discretion over the use of vaping devices outside buildings. Cancer chemicals Sheila Duffy, chief executive of Ash Scotland, a charity aiming to reduce the harm caused by tobacco, said the joint statement on e-cigarettes brought ‘clarity’ to the issue.
There is now agreement that vaping e-cigarettes carry less risk than smoking tobacco, she said. ‘Although we still don’t know the long-term health effects of vaping, we can be confident that any smoker switching entirely to e-cigarettes will be taking in far fewer cancer-causing chemicals’.
Tobacco is lethal and I encourage anyone who smokes to find a way of quitting that works for them, which could include using e-cigarettes.
