Vaping: vex or boon?

Canadians appear split when it comes to vaping.

According to a new study by the Angus Reid Institute, many Canadians feel switching from smoking to vaping is a good move for your health while others feel it does more harm than good.

Almost half of the general public, 46 per cent and a firm majority of regular smokers of traditional cigarettes, 57 per cent say switching from smoking to vaping is a good move for one’s health, only a handful overall, 14 per cent say vaping is doing more harm than good.

Those who have never smoked are four times more likely to say they see more harm from vaping than good. One leading concern appears to be keeping these products out of the hands of minors.

Regardless of their own personal vaping or smoking behaviour, Canadians show strong support for new government regulations banning the sale of vaping products to those under the age of 18,  86 per cent  while more than six-in-ten say that flavours that may entice younger consumers, such as bubble gum or fruit, should be restricted.
