Weeks prior to the first cases of vaping-related lung illness hitting the news, RegWatch conducted an exclusive interview with Martin Dockrell the Tobacco Programme Lead at Public Health England. PHE is the UK’s top health protection agency and employs 5,000 staff who are mostly scientists, researchers and public health professionals. Public Health England is a beacon of sound science and for the past 5-years has a been a strong advocate for the use of e-cigarettes as a tool to stop smoking.
While the recent deaths and illnesses associated with vaping are tragic, the confounding of traditional nicotine-vaping with illicit black-market THC-vaping could have even more dire consequences.
In this snippet of our exclusive interview with Public Health England, hear Dockrell discuss how vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking and learn the science behind this determination.
