Healthcare professionals working in the region will be encouraged to support smokers who choose to quit by vaping.

Electronic cigarettes have always been touted not only as a safer alternative to cigarettes but as a potential avenue by which existing smokers might quit.

After significant tobacco control efforts were implemented in the 1990s there was a substantial reduction in youth smoking, but the increasing popularity of e-cigarettes has the potential to slow or reverse that trend.

The association was stronger between smoking and high-frequency hearing loss than that of low-frequency hearing loss, and the risk of both types increased with the numbers of cigarettes smoked. About 19,000 of them were smokers and 9,800 were former smokers.

She added: "Smokers are four times more likely to quit if they get help, and we have been providing that support for more than 40 years, consistently getting a 68 per cent quit rate in four weeks". Studies suggest that 52% of users are ex-smokers and 45% are current smokers.

Thousands of smokers are turning to e-cigarettes, with three million Britons now believed to use the battery-powered devices containing nicotine.

Snow warning amid threat from 'Beast from the East Two'
Parts of England and Scotland may face more snow towards the end of the week, with cold winds from the east set to strike again. The cold snap may well last into next week and there is likely to be at least some snow in parts of the UK.

For the study, researchers included 50,195 people, aged between 20 to 64 years and free of hearing loss. "I don't think this would have been possible if I hadn't of made the decision to become healthier, stopping smoking made me healthier and enhanced how I performed while taking part in physical activity". It is not acceptable to require vapers to share the same outdoor space as smokers, or to ban e-cigarette use. That's the kind that can make it hard to understand speech. "Negative coverage in the media has led to a misconception that vaping is risky, when the reality is that e-cigarettes have the potential to reduce the harm from tobacco caused to smokers, those around them and the wider society".
