    Spotlight on Vaping and the NFL

    A media frenzy after an NFL Wildcard game put the full blown hypocrisy of the NFL’s policies around age-restricted products, such as vaping, on full display.

    During Wildcard Weekend, Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel was caught on camera with his hand curiously curled around an object while on the sidelines. Conclusions were quickly drawn that he was vaping. The media wasted no time jumping all over this one moment in time, in which Coach McDaniel may have taken a stealthy puff of a vape, and accused him of losing focus of his job because of that moment. Social media was also quick to jump on the anti-vape wagon. Some social media participants in this latest “scandal” were claiming that this single possible vaping puff was responsible for the Dolphins’ eventual defeat at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. This is Blasphemous!

    There are well-publicized rules banning electronic vaping, smoking, and the use of other nicotine products throughout NFL stadiums nationwide. These bans are said to be strictly enforced for all attendees. That being said, NFL players have been shown using tobacco products in and away from NFL stadiums for decades, with minimal to zero blowback. Even in the player’s locker rooms! But, when it comes to other age restricted products, the NFL openly embraces them. If the television commercial isn’t for a brand of beer or booze, it’s for DraftKings or Caesars Sports Book.

    White Horse Vapor firmly believes that all sports venues that have banned vaping, along with smoking and the use of other tobacco products, should carefully reconsider these restrictions. Users who have quit smoking cigarettes and are now vaping are enjoying better health! The wonder of vaping is that it allows cigarette smokers to kick the habit while still getting satisfaction from the nicotine that they crave. Many people, especially those in bureaucracy, love to lump vaping together with smoking cigarettes or cigars, and chewing tobacco, when vaping is in fact, the only healthier alternative.

    Without a doubt, NFL players have a strong impactful influence on today’s culture and conversation. It’s time the league embraced and allowed healthier alternatives in their stadiums, for people who still feel the need to use nicotine products. Vaping is the future, and is already a proven healthier change for the better for so many tobacco users. The NFL, who we have great respect for, should get on board with this concept and reconsider the details of their smoking bans.

    Nicotine vaping in England: 2022 evidence update main findings

    in the short and medium term, vaping poses a small fraction of the risks of smoking...

    Published 29 September 2022 by UK Government (original article found here)

    1. The review

    This evidence review is the eighth in a series of independent reports on vaping originally commissioned by Public Health England and now by the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities in the Department of Health and Social Care.

    This report was led by academics at King’s College London with a group of international collaborators and is the most comprehensive to date. Its main focus is a systematic review of the evidence on the health risks of nicotine vaping.

    2. Health risks

    The report primarily looks at data on human exposure to vaping, complemented with findings from animal and cell studies. It provides the most robust evidence on health risks of vaping to date. It also assesses the relative risks of vaping compared with smoking, as well as the absolute risks of vaping compared with not vaping or smoking.

    2.1 Overall conclusions

    Based on the evidence that the team reviewed, the conclusions were that:

    • in the short and medium term, vaping poses a small fraction of the risks of smoking
    • vaping is not risk-free, particularly for people who have never smoked
    • evidence is mostly limited to short and medium term effects and studies assessing longer term vaping (for more than 12 months) are necessary
    • more standardised and consistent methodologies in future studies would improve interpretation of the evidence

    2.2 Biomarkers of toxicant exposure

    Biomarkers of toxicant exposure are measurements of potentially harmful substance levels in the body. The evidence reviewed suggests there is:

    • significantly lower exposure to harmful substances from vaping compared with smoking, as shown by biomarkers associated with the risk of cancer, respiratory and cardiovascular conditions
    • similar or higher exposure to harmful substances from vaping compared with not using nicotine products
    • no significant increase of toxicant biomarkers after short-term secondhand exposure to vaping among people who do not smoke or vape

    Vaping is 95% Safer Than Smoking Tobacco

    Is vaping actually 95% safer than smoking? The answer is yes and there's scientific evidence supported by leading health organizations to prove it.

    Public Health England (the English Government Public Health Agency) and The Royal College of Physicians reached the same conclusion after conducting comprehensive, independent reviews of e-cigarettes in 2015, 2016, and 2018. 

    The Royal College of Physicians concluded, "... the available data suggest that they are unlikely to exceed 5% of those associated with smoking tobacco products, and may well be substantially lower than this figure."

    To summarize, The Royal College of Physicians, a British professional membership body dedicated to improving the practice of medicine, states that vaping is 95% safer than smoking traditional cigarettes. 

    To even prove their scientific research even further, the same 95% figure had been estimated by an international expert panel assembled by the Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs in 2014. Their studies included 12 products and 14 harm criteria. 

    In the United States, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, made a statement that e-cigarettes and vaping are "far less harmful" but did not give an exact percentage. Even though an exact figure wasn't presented, it's SAFE to assume that vaping is indeed much more safer than smoking cigarettes and provides a a glimpse of the realistic level of risk which is meaningful for smokers looking to switch.

    How Was The 95% Figure Reached?

    Almost all the harm from smoking a traditional cigarette comes from the inhalation of smoke and tar. Not to mention the thousands of other chemicals and toxins produced from burning tobacco. Vaping, instead, aerosolizes a liquid with far fewer ingredients without the need for combustion. In return, the risk from vaping is immensely lower than smoking. This is due to the absent of smoke and toxins; which contains lower than 1% in vapor products. The lower levels of toxins result in lower health risks.

    Also, toxins and carcinogens measured in the body of vape users are far lower compared to smokers. It makes sense why there hasn't been one death so far from vaping nicotine only.

    Health improvements from vaping can also be measured compared to smokers; from reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, lower blood pressure, as well as improvements in asthma and emphysema. All-in-all, people feel a lot better and their well being improves when switching over to vape.

    Finally, and one of the most important points, the risk of cancer is estimated to be less than 1% of the risk from smoking combustible cigarettes.
