  7. Review of CBC's Fifth Estate Report- E-Cigarettes : Welcome Back, Big Tobacco

    E-Cigarettes : Welcome Back, Big Tobacco”

    The episode discusses the challenges vapers/vape shops are facing in Canada when it comes to regulation and Health Canada’s reluctance to approve e-cigarette as a smoking cessation device.  It also discusses big tobacco’s plans to provide “harmdrawing of man from tobacco company blowing smoke at children saying "Sorry but your health may be hazardous to our profits" reduction” devices by introducing their own e-cigs. Isn’t it ironic how they claim to be concerned about the health of their consumers, yet still mass produce cigarettes which everyone knows has 4000 chemicals! It seems like they're more concerned about profits rather than health.  It’s clear that there has been a substantial decrease in smoking over the last few years, which could be due to an increase in popularity within the vape industry.   Ex-smokers have found success in quitting traditional cigarettes by switching to e-cigarettes and the numbers show it.   The vape industry is worth $2.5 billion and expected to reach $3-5 billion in the next 3-5 years as noted in the Fifth Estate report.  Another important topic they touched on was Public Health England’s stance on e-cigarettes.  Last year they published a study on e-cigarettes and found that they are 95% less harmful than traditional cigarettes .  With the number of smokers in England at an all-time low, and an estimated 3 million of them vaping, England’s health officials have endorsed e-cigarettes and recommend them as a smoking aid and have even gone as far as to suggest that they should be prescribed by doctors and paid for by the health care system.  The testimonials are real and the statistics don’t lie, vaping helps smokers quit! Should Health Canada adopt a similar stance to e-cigarettes as Public Health England? What do you think, comment below!

  10. Ontario Bans E-Cigarettes, Vaporizers Where Smoking Already Prohibited

    An article below from Global News discusses the Ontario legislation banning the use of personal vaporizers where smoking is prohibited. Well I don't completely disagree with the new rules I believe that grouping smokers and vapers into the same category isn't solving the real problem. Should vapers be able to use their device in a restaurant or a store? The answer to this is NO. Everyone should be concious and respectful of others around them and not interfer with their personal space, I don't think someone who switched from smoking to vaping would a appreciate someone's vapour in their face while their eating.  That being said one of the main issues I have with these rules is how they are grouping smokers with vapers together. The major difference between smoking and vaping is that while smoking produces second hand smoke, which is a known carcinogen, vaping does not as it is not combustible. This factor alone should be enough to establish that smoking and vaping are nowhere near the same threat. Also one other point to be made is the Ontario Government is telling ex-smokers who have quit smoking using a vape to now congregate with the smokers exposing them to second hand smoke one of the reasons why they quit smoking. Does that sound fair? Legislations need to recognize that vaping isn't a fad and its here to stay.  I agree that there needs to be regulation and legislation but it has to be fair.
