The UK Vaping Industry Association has published a factsheet to cover the “10 Vaping Truths” and combat the rampant misinformation in today’s United Kingdom. The vape trade body says the factsheet aims to “cut through the misinformation, blow away the smoke and mirrors and make the truth about vaping clear”.

The UK Vaping Industry Association says: “Misperceptions about vaping have never been higher and public trust in the stop smoking tool never lower. According to the latest data from Action on Smoking and Health, half of Great Britain’s adult smokers wrongly and worryingly believe vapes are as or more harmful when compared with cigarettes – up from 39% in 2023.”
