Tobacco: More heat on vaping

28 Jan 2020 - Alcohol & Tobacco

There was not enough evidence to conclude that e-cigarettes helped smokers quit tobacco, a US government report said, as the vaping industry faced increased regulatory pressures. The advice was contrary to that provided by the British government, which classed e-cigarettes as a nicotine replacement therapy that made it easier to stop smoking. The new report said that cessation medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration, such as nicotine patches and lozenges, as well as counselling, “increased the likelihood of successfully quitting smoking’’.
