The ‘Shocking’ ECig Video From Public Health England

Published December 30th 2018
Public Health England recently published a video showing the effects of smoking vs vaping. This article explores just how shocking that study is.


If you’ve been on social for the last week you probably felt the shockwaves spread through the BBC, Sky News, The Guardian and all other corners of social media on the surprising news that there may be something to this ‘eCigarette’ thing after all.

Is it so shocking that Public Health England (‘PHE’) are maintaining their stance that vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking? To really understand why this newly published video, but fairly old news, is taking the press by storm, we really have to take a deeper look into our current climate and understand what the majority public perception of vaping really is and why.


The brand new viral video published by PHE on 28 December 2018


If you’re reading this thinking ‘come on, I already know vaping is less harmful than smoking, tell me something new’ then you should certainly take pride as an enlightened being on this floating sphere. The fact is that 44% of smokers in the UK:

"either believe that vaping is as harmful as smoking or don’t know that vaping poses much lower risks to health."
(PHE 2018).


So what exactly is going on? Why does such misinformation still exist?

We really think it comes down to three key things:

1. The burden of the label ‘eCigarette’;
2. Media/‘the Juul effect’; and
3. Acceptance of new science takes time.

Cigarette smoking was part of everyday life in the sixties. Heck, kids as young as ten took up smoking and there was zero regulation on advertising. Like myself, if you didn’t grow up in the sixties, it’s quite difficult to truly appreciate just how normal and non-stigmatised smoking cigarettes really was. This advert really brought it home for me:


More doctors smoke camels than any other cigarette


So imagine this widespread acceptance of a product labelled the ‘cigarette’ for an entire generation followed by the sharp and sudden realisation that it was one of the biggest lies ever told. That label, the ‘cigarette’, now not only encompasses the worst health risks imaginable, but also carries an entire generation’s mistrust in the deception of their realities.

That generation not only developed a regurgitating reaction to the product, concept and word, but they then raised their children instilling this visceral reaction to that same product, concept and word. Those children then lost loved ones to cigarettes as they grew older and so on, the cycle continues.

We now live in a world where children just seem to know that cigarettes are a bad product, a bad concept, a bad word. And they are right. But it is in this paradox of semantics that a less harmful and more helpful alternative for many of those addicted remains trapped in the language that would have otherwise reaped benefits for those struggling to quit.

Cigarettes and eCigarettes will eventually lose their immediate association. But it will either take the passing of three or four generations or a widespread adoption of the more accurate descriptor we know as ‘vaping’.

So what’s going on with Juul? What’s the hype about and why’s the media going crazy?

Long story short, Juul has been able to capture a simplistic product design and basic approach into mass market adoption. There is a reason Apple releases only one product innovation every year and ultimately, the only people who end up complaining about the lack of features are the enthusiasts. While die hard vapers see Juul as a featureless or a gimmick, the lack of options and the basic functionality of the product and its vape juice selection has, in it’s simplicity, created a $15 billion company by focusing on mass market adoption. As we all know, where there is such a vast amount of money involved, the media shows up with it’s golden spade.

Combine this flashy new age company with the historical deception and label of the ‘cigarette’, of whose benefactors have extensive lobbying influence in US Policy, and you end up with, at a very minimum, an almost deliberately confused media that keeps those who could benefit the most from making the switch enthralled in the ‘cigarette’ label scare — a situation the media themselves helped birth in the first place.

But it’s almost 2020. Sooner or later, the media will be forced to understand that — well — that sort of stuff doesn’t fly with us like they are used to with previous generations.

Acceptance and The Future of Vaping

If you are among the enlightened, you can almost feel the maturity of science roaming amongst us in a way that is discernibly different to the 1960s advert displayed above. And by enlightened, I don’t mean those who collect vape juice — I mean those who understand that acceptance of an idea or of a scientific concept does not mean that you must love it or even agree with it’s social or political principle.

Acceptance is about abandoning your pre-programmed perception and starting fresh with the desire to gain real and true knowledge. So with that, we’ll leave you with these powerful words from the men and women with the lab coats.

Dr Lion Shahab (leading smoking cessation academic - University College London):

The false belief that vaping is as harmful as smoking could be preventing thousands of smokers from switching to e-cigarettes to help them quit. I hope this illustrative experiment helps people see the huge damage caused by smoking that could be avoided by switching to an e-cigarette


Dr Rosemary Leonard (NHS GP):

I regularly give patients advice about quitting and when I recommend e-cigarettes, I am often surprised to hear the misconceptions some people have about them. The results of this experiment clearly show that every cigarette you smoke causes tar to enter your body and spreads poison throughout your bloodstream. Vaping is much less harmful than smoking and I really hope this experiment will encourage smokers to make a quit attempt. No matter how old you are, it’s never too late to stop.

What is E-Liquid?

Vape juice, commonly referred to as e-Liquid, is the substance that is used to refill vape devices. These juices contain three main ingredients: vegetable glycerine, propylene glycol and flavourings. Nicotine can also be added but is optional and dependant on user preference.

What categories or types of Vape Juice are there?

Vape juice comes in four main forms: Shortfills, Regular 10mls, Nicotine Salts and Concentrates. Whilst the former is generally regarded as the default choice for vapers who enjoy a lower nicotine vape juice, Regular 10mls and Nicotine Salts both cater primarily for those looking to switch over from smoking due to their ability to contain high amounts of nicotine.

What are Shortfill E-Liquids?

By default, short fills come as zero nicotine e-liquids and are not filled to the brim of the bottle – hence their names. This leaves just enough room for one or sometimes two nicotine shots (if required by the user). By adopting this approach, e-liquid manufacturers are able to lower their compliance costs by only testing the separate nicotine shot that they can then bundle into packages with all available flavours. Otherwise, if manufacturers pre-mixed their nicotine into all their flavours, they would be obliged to have all flavours tested as they would then all be 'nicotine-containing compounds' – which is what the compliance regulation seeks to regulate through testing.

What are Regular 10ml E-Liquids?

By contrast, Regular 10mls do not require the addition of nicotine as these e-liquids come pre-mixed with nicotine. Because of this, the law requires all eliquids that are pre-mixed with nicotine to be limited to a maximum capacity of 10ml and a maximum nicotine concentration of 20mg. Whilst this generally results in a more expensive end product, it comes with the added benefit of a wide variety of nicotine strengths all the way up to 20mg. Achieving such a high strength is not possible with shortfills due to the nature of dilution when starting off with a 20mg nicotine shot.

What are Nicotine Salt E-Liquids?

Similar to Regular 10mls, Nicotine Salts are also required to be tested on a per strength and per flavour basis as they come pre-mixed with nicotine. This again generally leads to a higher cost per millilitre for nicotine salts. However, unlike Regular 10mls that utilise the freebase nicotine compound, nicotine salts are unique in their use of an additional salt molecule that is attached to the nicotine molecule. This chemical difference in the nicotine compound results in a much smoother and softer inhale with Nicotine Salt eliquids when compared directly with Regular 10mls or Shortfills that have been mixed with a freebase nicotine shot.

What are Concentrate E-Liquids?

Unlike the above types of e-liquids, concentrates do not generally contain any VG whatsoever. This is because concentrates are a mixture of your desired flavour concentrates usually suspended in PG. It is then up to the user to use their own VG/PG mixture to bring the concentrates up to the desired VG/PG ratio. Whilst this may seem laborious, the intended purpose of concentrates is for hobbyists and more advanced vapers who tend to prefer lower resistance coils that use a lot of e-juice in a short space of time. For this type of vaping, concentrates are more cost effective.

Which Nicotine Strength E-Liquid should you choose?

Your choice of e-Liquid is highly dependent on your objective. If you have recently switched over from smoking a pack a day, we would generally recommend starting with either Nicotine Salts or Regular 10mls at a nicotine concentration of 15-20mg. Along with the best vape starter kit device, this should be a smooth transition and is most likely to satisfy your nicotine concentration.

If you are looking to lower your nicotine intake having already switched over from smoking, or if you were not a heavy smoker to begin with, we would recommend looking into shortfill e-Liquids that start off at 0mg and can be increased to 3mg or sometimes 6mg with a nicotine shot.

Which Brand of E-Liquid is right for you?

We have a range of over 7,000 e-liquids, a large variety to add to your shopping cart with Free UK delivery and free nicotine shots. As well as the best and most popular brands such as Nasty Juice, IVG E-Liquids, Dinner Lady, and Vampire Vape, our vape juice types range from high nicotine to nicotine free.
