Many experts dubbed 2016 the 'year of the health product'. It got that moniker due to a shift in public awareness when it comes to staying fit and healthy. Health and fitness products like Fitbits and groceries such as almond milk and avacados saw a boom in places like the UK and US, denoting a general trend toward healthy living. In the same year, sales of vape kits and e-cigarettes rose 30% to £81m. It's safe to say that vaping is a booming industry and lots of people are getting on board, but it's curious that while sales are booming during these 'health conscious' times, places like New York state are laying out public bans. Why? Can vaping really be part of an internation health kick, or do we simply have our heads in the clouds?

Now that 2017 is drawing to a close, it's a good chance to look back across the year and see what's happened in the world of vaping. There's no doubt it's been monumental. We've had a landmark study from Public Health England which claims that vaping is 95% less harmful than tobacco. Despite vaping being banned in some public spaces around New York, it's still booming in popularity. And last but not least, cigarette sales are falling in key markets like the UK and US. This may not be good for the government's purse (think tobacco tax), but it's certainly good news for everyone else. It's largely down to smokers who want to become ex-smokers, and how vaping helps them achieve it. If you're currently hooked on cigarettes and think that, like thousands of others, you may be able cut them out of your life by vaping as a healthy alternative, where do you start?

If you keep up with current affairs you've probably heard a lot in the new recently about vaping. Some scientific bodies have claimed that it's 95% less harmful than tobacco and an excellent alternative to cigarettes. Others denounce vaping, with New York state going as far as banning it in public spaces. The truth is, vaping is a relatively new trend that we don't know too much about at the moment. Two things we do for sure are that, one - it's nowhere near as harmful as drinking or smoking and is FDA approved, and two - it's becoming extremely popular. One reason for that is modding.

Whether you're an experienced vaper or a complete newbie, we've all been there at some point. You go to take a nice long draw from your favourite e-juice only for your vape tank to spitback at you.

Veterans know how to avoid this, but for those of you just starting out or looking for ways to curb sptitback, here are some things to bear in mind.

Vaping is perhaps more popular in the UK than anywhere else at the moment, with over 3 million active vapers. When you consider the research published by Public Health England which claims vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking, it's little surprise that vaping is skyrocketing in Britain. NHS Scotland even went as far as to officially recommend e-cigarettes to those trying to quit smoking tobacco laced cigarettes. So why this sudden move to launch a new inquiry into the safety of vaping? Is it necessary and will it make a difference?

Thanks to the hard work of many public health activitists, most Americans are now aware that smoking cigarettes is bad for them. Despite that, over half a million Americans still die each year from smoking related illnesses, so there's clearly more work to be done. Smoking has decreased in popularity sharply throughout the past decade, in no small part to the introduction of newer, tobacco-free devices we call vape kits or e-cigarettes. So why have New York state now banned them from being them being used in indoor public spaces? Will it actually improve public health?

According to those in the know, the UK quite far ahead of the US when it comes research and support of vaping as a viable alternative to smoking. Public Health England were one of the first reputable medical bodies in the world to come out and say that vaping was 95% less harmful than smoking cigarettes, and more smokers should make the switch. For the past several years, the UK has made October the month for kicking bad habits, and 'Stoptober' is a campaign to get smokers to give up. It has huge support across the country, from billboard advertising to television campaigns, and lots of people get on board.
