In recent years, there has been controversy over the effectiveness of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation. The biggest problem is that except for the United Kingdom, no country has produced effective data that e-cigarettes can reduce smoking rates. Recently, however, the United States, the country with the most controversy over e-cigarettes, has had to admit it sideways.
According to the statistics of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the smoking rate of American adults has reached a record low! In 2017, the smoking rate of adults in the United States was only 14%. You know that in 1965, the United States was a country with a smoking rate of 42%. Nearly half of the people were smokers.
However, perhaps due to the strict management of e-cigarettes in the United States, the CDC did not use Vape as a hero in quitting smoking, but attributed the decline in smoking rates mainly to “anti-tobacco education.” But smoking cessation and Vape are still a topic that the CDC cannot avoid. As for the psychological level of education, its effect is actually more difficult to verify the data.
The CDC did not deny that e-cigarettes made many people break away from traditional cigarettes and contributed to the reduction in smoking rates, but now Vape has been described as a tobacco product, and they have to think about whether this is really a “quit smoking” “. But it is ridiculous that Vapor is not defined as a smoker in the current statistics, that is, in a sense, this “quit smoking effect” is recognized. For Vape, CDC believes that more research is still needed to prove that it is indeed effective.
In fact, about 5 months ago, the CDC made it clear that Vape is indeed one of the contributing factors to the decrease in smoking rate. Perhaps the change in the current situation has led to a relatively ambiguous attitude towards Vape when the CDC spoke. Various safety and health organizations in the world are also paying attention to Vape. According to comments from the Foreign Consumer Choice Center, Vape may be a new indicator for quitting smoking and harm reduction.
