The US outbreak of vape-related lung disease, often referred to as e-cigarette, or vaping, product use associated lung injury (EVALI), understandably generated a lot of fear and the negative publicity that resulted for e-cigarettes was accompanied by a lot of sketchy reporting around the causes of EVALI, which had a detrimental effect on the sector.

Although most of this negative publicity has been put in the shade by the arrival of Covid-19, and nicotine vaping has been largely acquitted of involvement in EVALI, will the misinformation that surrounded the news stories have a long-term impact on the industry?

US stakeholders in positions of authority have now taken such a strong stance against vaping that even the e-cig companies themselves pay at least lip service to the idea of “keeping vapes away from youth”.
Is the uptake of vaping by young people really as bad for public health as orthodox opinion would have it? Are young vapers really more likely to become smokers – and if so, why?

We report on published papers and research to keep you informed of the latest developments in the ongoing debate.
