Vape Manufacturer React on Insurance Company Call for Disposable Vape Ban

Recently, a German health insurance company calls for a nationwide ban on disposable vapes. Well-known vape manufacturer, VPFIT comments about this.

Vape use is increasing in Germany

According to a survey by German health insurance company DAK-Gesundheit, 7% of 15,000 teenagers aged 9-17 surveyed said they use nicotine-containing vapes at least once a month. This number has grown over the past year, from 5% to 7%.

Therefore, the company calls for a nationwide ban on disposable vapes in Germany.

According to its most recent survey, adolescent use of traditional cigarettes and hookahs has declined since 2016, but use of vapes is increasing.

For the first time since the survey began in 2016, more students regularly use vape devices than traditional cigarettes or hookahs.

Moreover, the proportion of youth using cigarettes in Germany has barely changed compared to last year.

DAK-Gesundheit says that if Germany wants to establish a smoke-free society in 2040, this goal will face challenges. The agency is calling for a nationwide ban on disposable vapes.

vapes are more effective than other products in delivering nicotine, Andreas Storm, president of DAK-Gesundheit, said in a statement. “vaping devices have become the main starting point for nicotine addiction among teenagers. This will increase the risk of smoking regularly when they are adults, thereby increasing their cancer risk.”

In addition, Storm says flavors vapes are more attractive to students. “especially those like mango or raspberry, which are particularly appealing to kids and teens. In addition, disposable vapes are relatively inexpensive. The price attracts young consumers.” He called for a ban on disposable vapes as soon as possible.

“Banning disposable vapes would be counterproductive”

However, Oliver Pohland, director of the VdeH(Verband des eZigarettenhandels, German vape industry association), believes that banning disposable vapes is counterproductive:

“Teenagers love to try new things, especially those that are banned. We don’t need new restrictions, just continued monitoring by agencies, especially in small shops.”

In Germany, the sale of vapes to people under the age of 18 is prohibited. Ollie also dismissed the idea that vapes would turn teenagers toward traditional cigarettes. The German Federal Center for Health Education (BZgA) stated that vapes may be generally less harmful to health than traditional cigarettes.

Vape Manufacturer comment on banning disposable vapes

VPFIT, a top vape manufacturer from China, does not believe that banning disposable vapes can be a useful solution.

Firstly, disposable vapes can serve as a harm reduction tool for adult smokers looking to transition away from combustible tobacco products. Banning disposable vapes could limit access to a potentially less harmful alternative and hinder smoking cessation efforts.

In addition, banning disposable vapes may result in a market shift towards other vaping products and traditional cigarette. This could lead to unintended consequences.

Moreover, to avoid teenagers from getting vaping devices, totally ban disposable vapes is not the final way. This need the vape manufacturers, vape distributors, retail stores, resellers and the government agencies all act together.
