Recently, a paper published in the authoritative international journal “The Lancet Regional Health” causes great interest to the tobacco and vape industry. It points out that vape pen products have played an effective role in reducing the smoking rate in the United States. The calculation way is number of cigarette users/total number*100%. With the rising use rate of vape products, the use rate of cigarettes in the United States is decreasing year by year.
The report confirms that from 2020 to 2021, the use rate of vape pen products rises from 3.7% to 4.5%. At the same time, the use rate of cigarettes in the United States drops from 12.5% to 11.5%. U.S. adult smoking rates have fallen to the lowest point in nearly 60 years.
The Eastern Virginia School of Medicine in the United States leads the study. They conduct a four-year follow-up survey of more than 50,000 American adults. Finally, they find that the use of vape pen products is “related to smoking cessation behavior.” The official website of the World Health Organization expresses “quit smoking” as “quit tobacco”, that is, quitting tobacco. Because the main hazard of cigarettes – 69 carcinogens are almost all produced in tobacco combustion.
In addition, studies have show that many vape pen products users were former cigarette smokers. They chose to switch to vape products without the tobacco combustion process because they wanted to quit smoking.
High-quality evidence from international authoritative medical organizations such as Cochrane shows that vape pen products can be used to quit smoking. Moreover, the effect is better than nicotine replacement therapy. In December 2021, a paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has shown us a data. It pointed out that the success rate of quitting smoking with the help of vapes is 8 times higher than that of ordinary smokers.
According to a study, the smoker’s choice is directly related to his/her cognition. For example, some smokers do not understand the relevant knowledge and will relapse to smoking cigarettes after using vape pen products. Actually, this is more harmful. Another study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in February 2022 also show us another data. When vape products users start to use cigarettes again, the concentration of carcinogen metabolites in urine can increase by up to 621%.
We should improve people’s correct understanding of vape pen products, especially to prevent smokers from re-smoking cigarettes. The author emphasizes this in the paper. In addition, he also points that we should strength the research on the “cigarette-vapor” habit. That’s effect way to find the potential driving force for smokers to make changes. So as to provide more evidence support for public health policy planning.
