Tobacco: No safe way to vape

23 Jan 2020 - Alcohol & Tobacco

E-cigarettes are “not safe” and are harmful to wellbeing, global health chiefs warn. In a series of strongly worded tweets, they said there was not enough evidence the devices should be used by people who were trying to quit smoking. Vaping was particularly risky for the developing brains of teens and can damage babies in the womb, added the World Health Organisation. E-cigarettes also expose non-smokers to nicotine and other harmful chemicals, and may pose a risk through “second-hand” vaping.
