Surveys for money say vaping is the new tobacco
Recent surveys for money revealed the trend for vaping has risen sharply, and it’s certainly helping people to give up cigarettes.
According to the results of surveys for money published, in the Guardian, the number of people vaping (or using e-cigarettes) has quadrupled in the last 5 years as their popularity has grown. Many people use them to help give up cigarettes, or cut down on smoking cigarettes, and according to online surveys around 1.5 million current vapers have now given up smoking tobacco.
Surveys for money reveal risk reduction of vaping
According to recent online surveys
and health reports, e-cigarettes are considered 95% less harmful than tobacco. Landmark studies
have also shown that vaping reduces the risk of harm to both the smoker and those around them. Although they can contain nicotine, e-cigarettes have fewer harmful substances that are present in cigarettes: such as tar and carbon monoxide. So although not necessarily risk-free, vaping and the use of e-cigarettes is currently considered by health experts as significantly less harmful than smoking tobacco.
However, the paid survey did highlight that the rates of vaping are starting to slow down. This may be due to the results of various surveys for money which showed that a significant number of people are still wary of the health risks of vaping. Over a quarter of people taking part in the paid survey published in the Guardian said they believed e-cigarettes were ‘equally or more harmful than the traditional equivalents’. Only 13% thought they were much less harmful than smoking.
Smoking rates falling say surveys for money
According to the latest figures from Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), fewer than 1 in 5 adults in the UK now smoke cigarettes. Smoking rates have fallen drastically over the past 5 years; and whether that’s down to vaping, new laws on advertising and packaging, better education or improved smoking cessation services, we can’t say for certain. It’s likely that all of these factors are at play. What we can say is that the rise of vaping has meant more people giving up more harmful cigarettes, which can only be a good thing for the health of those people (and those around them).
Whether vaping rates continue to rise, and smoking rates continue to fall, will be interesting to see. For now though it looks as thought the future may be the vape alternative. Tobacco is apparently sooo 5 years ago now.
