Vaping Popularity Boom Has Helped 1.6M People In 6 Years

Vaping Popularity Boom Has Helped 1.6M People In 6 Years
Vaping has helped 1.6 million people in six years in the UK, according to a recent report on The Mirror.

Their figures showed that the number of adults that vape in England is equal to 5.5% of the population, which is up from the number in 2014, which was just 3.7%.

According to them, smoking as opposed to vaping is a lot more common in areas with lower socioeconomic status.

Several regions had smoking-related hospital admissions above 3,000 per 100,000 of the population in the space of a year.

James Dunworth said of the issue: “As e-cigs have become popular, smoking rates have fallen. The trend is only going one way.”

The UK has some of the strictest regulations on e-cigarettes in the world and is very progressive in terms of its adoption of e-cigarettes.  E-cigarette products in the UK are subject to minimum standards of quality and safety, as well as packaging/labelling regulations to help customers to understand their choices.

According to Public Health England's evidence review, around 40% of smokers have not even tried an e-cigarette, so there is still a long way to go in normalising vaping.
