Leading Dr’s say vaping should be banned in bars and restaurants


The apparent risk of passive vaping is enough that Dr Iain Kennedy, a consultant in public health from Glasgow has called for a ban in public places.

He said, “There are new potential risks, and we don’t yet know the level of those risks. It is a precautionary principle – until we do the studies and have a better idea of what the risks may or may not be, we should restrict their use in public places”

He went on to state that although electronic cigarettes were undoubtedly safer than cigarettes there is no evidence that they were anywhere near ‘safe’.

These comments contradict many studies which come to the complete opposite conclusion of Dr Kennedy’s statements, including the study conducted by Public Health England which stated vaping was 95% safer than smoking.

Astoundingly, the Dr’s at the BMA conference agreed with him and all backed the ban on public use, once again comparing them to regular tobacco products.

There was a voice of reason in all the noise, Rosanna O’Conner the director of drugs, alcohol and tobacco at Public Health England said “Vaping is not the same as smoking, second hand smoke is harmful to health but there is no evidence that e-cigarette vapour carries the same harms. In fact a ban on using e-cigarettes in public places could be damaging, as it may put off smokers from using e-cigarettes to help them quit.”
