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?

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?

In the current vaping times, the digital world seems to be ablaze with campaigns that are driving specific vaping agendas. On the surface, these agendas can be broken down as having simple ‘for’ or ‘against’ motives - but the more one gets into them the more one gets the feeling that these agendas carry larger influence, perhaps aimed at swaying the market in a particular direction.

In one of our previous blogs, we highlighted some telling points on how the war between vaping and big tobacco is playing out right now.
