CVA expels myths about vaping

Friday, August 7, 2020 - 3:17pm

Hamilton, ON, Aug. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian Vaping Association (CVA) is alarmed by the resurgence of articles inaccurately depicting vaping as being as harmful as smoking, as well as linking vaping to increased COVID-19 symptom severity.

Key Points: 
  • Hamilton, ON, Aug. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian Vaping Association (CVA) is alarmed by the resurgence of articles inaccurately depicting vaping as being as harmful as smoking, as well as linking vaping to increased COVID-19 symptom severity.
  • The Royal College of Physicians was first to conclude six years ago that vaping is at least 95 percent less harmful than smoking.
  • In addition to misleading smokers about the relative harm vaping products pose, it is equally troubling to the CVA that many publications continue to link vaping to COVID-19 long after health authorities have verified that there is no proven connection.
  • The publications that falsely link vaping to COVID-19 and erroneously state that vaping is as harmful as smoking have failed to uphold these basic principals by disregarding the facts.
