Vaping is often seen as a safe or safer alternative to smoking. The good news is that vaping is much, safer than smoking tobacco. There has been no major evidence found that passive ‘smoking’ of e-cigarettes is a problem, even for people with lung disease. This is why vaping is better than smoking but that doesn’t mean we can say e-cigarettes are completely safe. There is still more research needed on the long-term effects and we need to keep a close eye on whether children and young people are taking up the habit.
