Health Canada and The Tobacco and Vaping Products Act, a vapours tale...

Posted by

In accordance with the new federal vaping legislation that became law on May 23rd of this year, Health Canada has released a information package (click here to read) that includes there stance on vaping as a cigarette replaement. Statements such as "Completely replacing cigarette smoking with a vaping product will reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals." show there support for vaping as a low risk alternative to smoking.

Some highlights from the article:

-Vaping is less harmful than smoking. Many of the toxic and cancer-causing chemicals in tobacco and the tobacco smoke form when tobacco is burned.

-Vaping products do not contain tobacco and do not involve burning or produce smoke. Except for nicotine, vaping products typically only contain a fraction of the 7,000 chemicals found in tobacco or tobacco smoke, and at lower levels.

-As a step towards quitting cigarettes, many smokers may go through a transition period when they use both cigarettes and vaping products. Studies have shown short-term general health improvements in those who have completely switched from smoking cigarettes to vaping products.
