Is vaping better than smoking?

Vaping poses a ‘small fraction of the risks of smoking’. In 2023, researchers at Brunel University London found the NHS could stand to save more than £500 million per year if half of adult smokers made the switch.

Smoking remains one of the leading causes of preventable death in the world – killing 250 people every day in the UK alone.

Cigarette smoke contains more than 5,000 chemicals – 70 of which we know cause cancer – and smoking is responsible for 7 in 10 lung cancer cases in the UK, according to Cancer Research UK.
