Are vapor products just as bad as smoking?
Today, most consumers in the United States think vaping is just as harmful as smoking, but millions of smokers in the USA and UK disagree.
They're in good company.
Public Health England, The National Academy of Sciences, and even the commissioner of the tobacco division of the FDA have all publicly stated otherwise.
Vapor has massive public health potential. Nonetheless, vaporizer usage is not without its own risks and caveats.
Depending on the exact device, substance, and other conditions, vapor can deliver the satisfaction of nicotine without tar and many other cancer-causing components of tobacco smoke.
But under what conditions?
Can we ensure the relative safety of these products?
