Show Notes

Is vaping helping people quit smoking or creating new smokers? In a simulation model, scientists calculated 3000 years of life gained in smokers who quit through vaping. They also calculated 1,500,000 years of life lost in teens and young adults who started vaping who otherwise would have never smoked. 3000 years gained verses 1.5 million year lost.  What a terrible public health choice. Dr. William Lynch discusses vaping.
