Will the Welsh government listen to the growing body of evidence on e cigs?


Simon Clark from the Free Society raises this question in light of new scientific evidence that shows that e cigarettes are less harmful than smoking tobacco.

A new study, involving 5 top Tobacco Control scientists has evaluated the global literature on e cigarettes and this is the conclusion they have drawn.

Stating that the new study backs up the 53 Health Specialists that wrote to the WHO, urging them not to ‘control and supress’ e cigarettes, Mr Clark continues that many experts have said that e cigarettes have the potential to save millions of lives.

The Welsh government are currently proposing a ban on vaping in public places. They are proposing the ban on the grounds that vaping will encourage young people to start smoking, as they will see vaping as glamourizing smoking. They are continuing with this proposal despite the evidence pointing to the contrary. Vaping does not cause young people to start smoking, and there are now several credible studies to prove this.

Simon Clark argues fairly that not all experts get it right, but when the evidence is mounting up that e cigarettes do not encourage children to smoke, a major review concludes that e cigarettes are less harmful than tobacco, for both user and bystander, and that e cigarettes “ could be among the most significant health innovations of the 21st Century, perhaps saving hundreds of millions of lives,” one would hope that the Welsh Government will sit up and take notice of what is being said.
