Really........ Certainly they could never be considered healthy and I agree there isn't definitive long term data, but scientific bodies maintain they are much safer than cigarettes which is the only comparison that really matters- 95% less dangerous according to Health England.

 

The substances you refer to are either absent in e liquid or at much lower concentrations- this is proven fact.  

 

 

Many people, Thai people I've known still think nicotine is the dangerous part about smoking... I had to explain to them its the burning/tar but I don't think it sunk in.   Theres little point trying to explain to a lot of people who don't take the time to learn about how vaping is 100x healthier

 

Also I went in a Thai Ambulance a few months back and the driver had a vape mod on the seat when I got in and I saw a IO officer using one of those IQOS things.

Tobacco is much worse than E-cigarettes and should be banned as well but as with most countries around the world it brings in a heap of money in taxes and lives seem to matter less here than elsewhere .

The jury is still out on which is the worst. Regardless, the hypocrisy is evident.

No, the jury most certainly isn't.  Only in your head!  Major health bodies around the world now acknowledge that vaping is substantially less harmful than smoking.  The latest country to reverse its ban is UAE.  The latest major body to declare in favor of vaping is NYU.

 

Thailand will look increasingly stupid imo.

And minister of health.

Are you sure the picture is the police or the Tobacco lobbyists group??? 

 

E Ciggs are better than tobacco smoking, not any where near as harmful.

They are looked upon by the health sector in NZ as being a step to weaning off the terrible real smokes.

Although they do not condone smoking E ciggs.

The problem as I see it and do many on TV, is that they can not control the TAX on E ciggs and juice.

Just buy Phillip Morris.  Job done.

 

Or buy government.... oh wait, that's a nest of rats right there.  Rat poison will be made illegal, but at whose expense [/rhetorical]

can't just buy philip morris. can buy their cigarettes but the IQOS is still illegal in thailand.

Philip Morris, the largest tobacco company in the world, says it will be going smoke free in the future.

The air we breathe is more harmful

In the UK you can walk around Heathrow airport vaping just told by security guard to be discreet and respect other people (ie no big clouds) this is because it is almost accepted fact that vaping has much less health affects (ie 95% and 2nd hand vape no health affects)

 

You can buy in Tescos and gas stations...2-3 vapeshops in every town.  

 

In the UK if you're departing from Heathrow, vaping is actually permissible as far as the gate

Hmmm, I think that has changed unfortunately. I remember several years ago being told it's fine to vape inside the terminal, as long as discreet, etc. But as of a year or so ago I'm sure they changed policy and now have signs up specifically saying no vaping. One can still be discreet of course.  

 

As it happens I once asked at Suvarnabhumi and was told it was fine to vape. I did so, discreetly. Now I would not dare.

So is vaping , problem is they do not know how to tax it , tax it as tobacco or electronics? Also for ejuice , some do not contain nicotine , just flavoured oils 

 

 

Like so many things these days.  It is a knee-jerk reaction by ill-informed people.  They use misinformation with the intention of spreading disinformation.

The BS  is your dismissal of substantiated scientific fact. You cannot  cite one recent peer reviewed public health study that backs up your position.

As for your claim that  ecigarettes are 95% less harmful, you are lying. Provide the established data that substantiates  your claim.  You don't even know what is in the liquids used, so how can you even claim they are not harmful.  Yes  a .38cal bullet fired from 100m is less harmful than a tossed grenade at 50 m. However, the  bullet can still be lethal sometimes.

 

Thailand is doing the right thing and it is supported by public health professionals around the world. Vaping is  harmful and causes serious and significant lung damage.

 

Care to post a link with scientific evidence that it is harmful?

How can we know which is more dangerous? More damaging? We can guess. But the fact is we will have a hard time of it until someone dies, who was never a smoker ,but was a vaper the whole life. Does their lungs have damage from the heat of vapes? The metallic composition of the vape debris? Are they genetically effected?

 

What we know is that vaping contain carcinogen substances, however, a portion less than cigarettes and for the same reason we can assume it is harmful - how much remains to be seen ...
