@LindaBauld discussing #Ecigarettes with ECancerTV

See the video on ECANCER.org here!

“Prof Bauld talks to ecancertv at NCRI 2015 about the impact of E-cigarettes on cancer.

She argues that whilst there is a lot of fear mongering, evidence shows they are significantly less harmful than regular cigarettes. Furthermore, there is no risk posed by second-hand vapour as there is with second-hand smoke.

We should be encouraging people to use E-cigarettes rather than equating them with tobacco use, she argues. Legislation such as banning the use of E-cigarettes in public places in Wales is dangerous, she says, as it sends out the message that they present the same danger.

However, she does note that further research needs to be done on the long-term effects of using E-cigarettes as well as their potential use by children.”
