Balancing consideration of the risks and benefits of E-Cigarettes
Sep 2, 2021
The use of e-cigarettes (also known as vapes) is quite topical at the moment so we thought this paper would be a great one to share. Titled “Balancing Consideration of the Risks and Benefits of E-Cigarettes” the report provides an overview of a broad range of research into the possible risks and benefits of these products. This includes succinct overviews of vaping as a tool to quit cigarette smoking, research into the potential for vaping to cause smoking initiation, concerns around nicotine and the developing brain and more. The authors call for a balanced approach to e-cigarette use which seeks to maximise the harm reduction potential of e-cigs, whilst guarding against potential pitfalls.
