Growing Number Of Brits Turn To Vaping

Growing Number Of Brits Turn To Vaping

New research has found that the percentage of Brits who vape has hit 19 per cent. The Belfast Telegraph shared the findings of the Mintel study, which also revealed that the demographic that has seen the biggest growth in vaping is the 45 to 54 age group. According to the survey, the percentage of Brits in this age range who use e-cigarettes hit 20 per cent in 2018, up from the 13 per cent recorded a year earlier. However, despite the large increase in middle-aged vapers, the group with the highest percentage of people using e-cigarettes is still 18 to 24 year olds, with 28 per cent of people in this demographic using vapes. Roshida Khanom, Mintel associate director of beauty and personal care, commented that the rising number of middle-aged vapers may in part be due to those in this age group seeing vaping as a fashionable trend. “Our previous research shows that 45-54s are the age group most likely to agree that vaping is fashionable,” she stated. In fact, 71 per cent of people surveyed in this age group described using e-cigarettes as fashionable. Although there have been concerns that vaping can lead to smoking traditional cigarettes, the [ Continue Reading... ]
Health Claims ‘Allowed’ For Vaping Ads

Health Claims ‘Allowed’ For Vaping Ads

The UK has agreed that adverts selling vape kits and other vaping items can include health claims. However, the Vaping Post reported that there are some conditions that need to be followed if health claims are made about any vaping products. The Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP and BCAP) announced that they will no longer block health claims from appearing in adverts for e-cigarettes. The most important thing to note about this announcement is that any vaping company that wants to claim its e-cigarettes are healthier than smoking must be able to support this with research that is linked to the particular range it’s selling. As a result, manufacturers will likely need to commission their own studies on vaping and its health effects for their products if they want to make such claims about vaping being healthier than smoking in their advertising materials. But e-cigarettes are an important tool being used by the NHS and other health organisations to encourage people to quit smoking. According to the NHS, 2.9 million people in the UK currently use vapes. And of these, 1.5 million have completely stopped smoking cigarettes. The health service states that they “carry a fraction of the risk of [ Continue Reading... ]
