Globally speaking, the United Kingdom has the most support rate on electronic cigarettes.
In other words, in the UK e-cigarettes share the most prevalence among smokers, ex-smokers and those people who have need in nicotine.
But how come? We can simply explain that: 1. e-cigarettes as an alternative of combustible tobacco can significantly reduce the harmful health issues that smoking causes; 2. E-cigarettes use is compliant with and good for complementing the smokefree legislation in the UK. Therefore, vape products are highly recommended to help smokers quit smoking and enjoy a relatively high reputation in the UK. Though the high reputation of vape is, there are also rules and restrictions on using e-cigarettes and they are different from smoking restrictions.
The PHE (Public Health England)said that: “E-cigarette use, known as vaping, is not covered by smokefree legislation. E-cigarettes do not burn tobacco and do not create smoke. While debate continues about their absolute level of safety, the consensus across England’s public health community is that e-cigarettes are significantly safer for users than smoked tobacco. An independent review of the latest evidence published by Public Health England (PHE) in 2015 found that, based on the international peer-reviewed evidence, vaping is around 95% safer for users than smoking. It also confirmed the findings of PHE’s 2014 independent evidence review, that there is no evidence of harm to bystanders from exposure to e-cigarette vapour and the risks to their health are likely to be extremely low. ”
