The US Preventive Services Task Force recently made a pitch for more robust and effective methods of getting teenage smokers off cigarettes.
Vaping has already changed the lives of countless smokers across the world. This is all the more impressive given the relatively short time modern vaping has existed. However, despite the millions of former smokers who can attest to the incredible power of e-cigarettes, a large portion of the population remains skeptical about their value.
That said, the vaping community has come a long way in the last ten years. These claims are now also backed with a growing pile of peer-reviewed evidence to the harm reduction and smoking cessation value of vaping. More importantly, this evidence has begun to shift momentum in favor of the vaping industry.
In fact, the US Preventive Services Task Force recently came out in support of vaping in their continued fight to stop teenage smoking in its tracks. This latest endorsement is proof that, while the debate over vaping may seem as entrenched as ever, we are undoubtedly starting to shift momentum in a positive direction.
The Latest Endorsement
The US Preventive Services Task Force is a Maryland based panel of experts in primary care and prevention. Founded nearly 40 years ago, their main focus has been reviewing any available evidence to develop recommendations for medical professionals around the country.
