E-cigarettes 'should be available free on prescription', health body says

E-cigarettes 'should be available free on prescription', health body says E-cigarettes 'should be available free on prescription', health body says

"Yet over half of smokers either falsely believe that vaping is as harmful as smoking or just don't know".

Mr Gething replied: "You said that e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful than tobacco". "Focusing on a group of adolescents who are traditionally at low risk for using cigarettes but who might use e-cigarettes can help prevent youth from transitioning from e-cigarette use to other tobacco product use".

Speaking in the Assembly last week the Conservative AM referred to new guidance by the British Medical Association stating "there are clear potential benefits to (e-cigarette) use in reducing the substantial harms associated with smoking, and a growing consensus that they are significantly less harmful than tobacco use".

The tobacco and vaping industries have greeted a new report by Public Health England which found that e-cigarettes only pose minimal health risks.

In its latest independent review into e-cigarettes, it said it was more certain than ever the devices are less harmful than traditional fags.

'We really want to get the message out that they really should consider using an e-cigarette because they're a lot better for them than continuing to smoke'. This past summer, UNC School of Medicine scientists found that e-cigarette vapor alters genes that are crucial for immune defense in the upper-airway. Researchers divided these students into four categories depending on their e-cigarette use and susceptibility to use e-cigarette.

As well, the Health Department says, "the e-cigarette aerosol users inhale and exhale is not harmless water vapor".

Exposure to e-cigarette vapor in indoor or outdoor public places was positively associated with susceptibility to using e-cigarettes and with current e-cigarette use.

"With or without nicotine, e-cigarette aerosol is unsafe".

PHE said in a report that NHS trusts should ensure "e-cigarettes are available for sale in hospital shops".

PHE found that despite its previous declaration about the relative safety of vaping, many smokers do not believe the products are a healthier alternative to cigarettes, pipes and cigars.
