Taking Stock | Royal College of Physicians on Vape Debate | RegWatch

The debate over nicotine vaping polarizes people “even in tobacco control,” says the chief tobacco control expert at the venerable Royal College of Physicians in the UK.

Representing over 40,00 doctors across 80 countries in the world, the RCP leads the way in public health’s mission to end the epidemic of tobacco addiction. But the RCP sits at the center of controversy over vaping since taking an early stand in support of nicotine vapes as a tool for harm reduction.

Joining us today is Dr. Sanjay Agrawal, the National Specialty Adviser for Tobacco Dependency at NHS England, Chair of the Royal College of Physicians Tobacco Advisory Group, and Consultant in Respiratory and Intensive Care Medicine.

Hear our frank discussion about the recently announced “Swap the Stop” program, the rationale behind RCP’s support for vaping, Dr. Agrawal’s response to flavour bans, and the gateway theory.
