A leading cancer charity says the Welsh Government needs to "reconsider its position" on e-cigarettes. Tenovus Cancer Care says the devices are one of the most effective ways of helping people quit smoking.
It follows research by Public Health England that suggests the devices do not act as a 'gateway' to conventional cigarettes. The report says regular use is found "almost exclusively" among those who have already smoked and shows e-cigarettes are “around 95% less harmful” than conventional smoking.
The Public Health England evidence update on e-cigarettes today has reinforced their importance as a tool for harm reduction and to help smokers quit.
We recognise the concerns raised around re-normalisation of smoking and also the introduction of a new generation to nicotine addiction, however these concerns have not been borne out in evidence from leading experts from Cardiff University; Cancer Research UK or ASH.
Tenovus Cancer Care believes that Welsh Government should take this body of evidence into account and reconsider its position on legislating to ban the use of e-cigarettes in enclosed spaces.
Almost 2000 Welsh people die from lung cancer every year - and 1600 of those deaths will be due to smoking cigarettes, the charity says.
