A group of renowned tobacco control researchers has endorsed vaping as an alternative to smoking.
Dr. Kenneth Warner, the Avedis Donabedian Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Public Health at the University of Michigan, has published a research review in the peer-reviewed American Journal of Public Health endorsing vaping as a less risky alternative to the smoking of combustible tobacco cigarettes.
Filter Magazine reports that Warner, with some of the most respected nicotine use addiction and tobacco researchers in the United States, has opted to endorse vaping and smoke-free nicotine delivery as a potential strategy to eliminate cigarettes. “Our concern is that much of the public health community—certainly the media, and very much legislators—haven’t really heard the other side of the story,” Warner told Filter reporters.
“Our hope, candidly, is given the origins of this paper, and the authorship of the paper, that it will draw some serious attention,” Warner said, speaking on the behalf of the author authors to the article published in the journal.
