Banning Vape Flavours May Lead To Youth Smoking, Yale Study Finds
9 November 2021

Could banning flavoured vaping products lead teens to cigarettes? A new study from researchers at  Yale School of Public Health has found that the odds of high school students in San Francisco smoking cigarettes doubled after the city's voters approved a ban on the sale of flavoured tobacco products, which included flavoured vape juices and menthol cigarettes. While it may go without saying, the ban was intended to reduce the appeal of tobacco and vaping products to the youths. However, the ban appears to have had the opposite effect, leading to an apparent increase in youth smoking, which is ...

Taxing Vapers Like Smokers Would Increase Smoking Rates, Researchers Find
2 November 2021

A new working paper by a group of economics and health policy researchers has found that taxing vaping products and smoking products that contain nicotine at the same rate would lead to an increase in smoking, damaging public health rather than improving it. The paper, which was published in the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), suggests that a law proposed by U.S. Senator Dick Durbin that would force all nicotine products to be taxed at the same rate in the United States would reduce youth vaping just a little more than it would lead to an increase in ...

21 October 2021

Vape nicotine comes in different forms, including freebase nicotine and what is commonly referred to as nic salts. It's the latter of these two forms that has exploded in popularity in the vaping scene and its rising popularity is not merely a fad, as nicotine salts are in many ways superior. Let's take a look at some of the reasons why many vapers have come to prefer salts in their e-juice. Nicotine Salts Taste Better While not everyone agrees, many vapers believe that salts taste better because they don't taste like anything. This means that vape juices containing salts are ...

At Vaper Empire, we sell our e-cigarette kits in various nicotine strengths, ranging from nicotine-free to high strength. With many nicotine strengths to choose from, we aim to provide our customers with the right fit for quitting smoking. Cochrane, ...

New Research Adds To Evidence That Vaping Is Significantly Less Harmful Than Smoking
11 June 2021

A new study has shed light on how vaping and smoking differ in their impact on cells and DNA, adding to the growing scientific evidence that vaping is significantly less harmful than smoking. The study, which was peer-reviewed and published in the journal Mutagenesis, utilised Toxys' ToxTracker suite of stem-cell-based in-vitro assays to compare e-liquid samples and their vapour to the smoke of combustible cigarettes. The study, which was conducted by scientists at Imperial Brands, marks the first time that the results of an analysis on e-liquids and their vapour using the ToxTracker system have been published.

5 June 2021

A new study led by Dr Gary Chan of the University of Queensland's National Centre for Youth Substance Use Research has added to the scientific evidence that e-cigarettes are a more effective tool for helping smokers quit than nicotine replacement therapies, including patches and gum. The study, which was published in the journal Addictive Behaviours, found e-cigarettes to be 50 per cent more effective than nicotine replacement therapy and over 100 per cent more effective than the placebo. The findings of the study draw into question the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners recommendation that electronic cigarettes be used as a second-line ...
