FEATURE THE VAPE DEBATE NNA Chair Sarah Jakes takes on the author of a new study on vaping and lung damage The following debate took place on BBC Essex shortly after the release of a new study which claims to link e-liquid condensates to lung damage. The exchange was hosted by presenter Steve Scruton, who was sitting in the chair for Sadie Nine. Sarah Jake’s position is that this study doesn’t reveal anything we didn’t already know. And if vaping is 95 percent safer than smoking, this discovery may fall within the confines of that five percent we don’t know much about. If vaping aids in getting people off smoking, it’s fundamentally working. Harm reduction doesn’t guarantee harmlessness, and reduced risk still has some risk. 102 | VM19
