Health group views e-cig as cessation tool

August 14, 2015

The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) has urged health chiefs across the U.K. to encourage smokers who have enrolled in the National Health Service’s stop-smoking services to use e-cigarettes as smoking-cessation devices, reports The Guardian.

It also argued for new “exclusion zones” outside schools, bars, pubs and parks, where smoking, but not vaping, should be prohibited.

If widely adopted by the government, the recommendation could represent the biggest shift in attitudes towards e-cigarettes in the decade since the devices entered the U.K. market.

The RSPH is an independent charity comprising more than 6,000 public health professionals.
