    Great when the UK govt actually get something right!

    Right it is though, and here's hoping that vaping is accepted more and not shoved out into the rain with the smokers everywhere.

    Public Health England issues report to UK Parliament confirming vaping is far less harmful than smoking, has helped many smokers quit, isn’t a gateway to smoking (which has plummeted), but 40% of smokers have never tried an e-cigarette, as many believe it is just as harmful as smoking
    PHE publishes independent expert e-cigarettes evidence review - GOV.UK press release
    E-cigarettes and heated tobacco products: evidence review - GOV.UK full text
    Evidence review of e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products 2018: executive summary - GOV.UK executive summary (PDF)

    The main findings of PHE’s evidence review are that:

    - vaping poses only a small fraction of the risks of smoking and switching completely from smoking to vaping conveys substantial health benefits

    - e-cigarettes could be contributing to at least 20,000 successful new quits per year and possibly many more

    - e-cigarette use is associated with improved quit success rates over the last year and an accelerated drop in smoking rates across the country

    - many thousands of smokers incorrectly believe that vaping is as harmful as smoking; around 40% of smokers have not even tried an e-cigarette

    - there is much public misunderstanding about nicotine (less than 10% of adults understand that most of the harms to health from smoking are not caused by nicotine)

    - the use of e-cigarettes in the UK has plateaued over the last few years at just under 3 million

    - the evidence does not support the concern that e-cigarettes are a route into smoking among
    young people (youth smoking rates in the UK continue to decline, regular use is rare and is almost entirely confined to those who have smoked)

    Newton/Dockrell/Marczylo: Making sense of the latest evidence on electronic cigarettes

    Doctors should state clearly that vaping is much lower risk than smoking, says report
    Doctors should state clearly that vaping is much lower risk than smoking, says report

    This is an extremely important report, and should be widely circulated.

    It would be very helpful when creating a new thread to give it a name that people can easily understand (without clicking on it to find out the actual subject matter), and that people can easily find on future searches.

    I use the term Public Health to refer to the institutions. The public's health means something entirely different.
