VapingPost reported on April 2 that a Google survey of UK Glass pipes retailer ElectricTobacconist found that only a minority of the UK public had accurate beliefs about Glass pipes.
Despite the concerns raised by the outbreak of EVALI and the use of Glass pipes by teenagers across the us, the UK's department of health and health services, including the national health service and public health England, fully supports Glass pipes as a way to quit smoking and continues to urge smokers to switch to Glass pipes.
Surprisingly, however, this positive attitude has not disappeared among the British public as expected.The survey was conducted to determine public opinion on the use of Glass pipes as a smoking cessation tool in the UK and whether they believe Glass pipes is good for public health.
Combined data showed that the majority of participants (34.9 per cent) believed fogging was not good for public health, with 26 per cent unsure.On the other hand, 24.1% thought Glass pipes might be good for public health, while only 15% thought Glass pipes was good for health.
When asked about America's fear-based atomisation narrative, most participants (40.4 per cent) said they had no problem because they did not have enough information.More than one-third (35%) of respondents said they were concerned about death related to evali.
A quarter (24.4 percent) of respondents said they had no impact at all on fears of evaporation in the United States, while about a third (31.2 percent) said they thought all steam-related concerns could be fueled by hype.In the media, 14.6 percent of respondents said this was totally unfounded.Some 22.2 percent of respondents thought the media reports were accurate, while 32 percent said they did not know.
When asked if they encouraged smokers, they knew they wanted to switch to Glass pipes.Nearly half (48.9 percent) of respondents said they would not quit smoking, 31.5 percent said they would probably quit, and 19.6 percent said they would.Respondents were also asked if they thought Glass pipes would help the UK meet the government's smoke-free target by 2030.A total of 42.7 percent (42.7 percent) said they would not smoke, 17.2 percent thought smoking might be helpful and 11.2 percent agreed.
In reviewing the data compiled, the researchers concluded that the headlines had a very negative impact on the public."Our research shows that most people are confused by negative media coverage, but at the same time they don't believe it, especially the sensational tabloids," said PascalCulverhouse, managing director of electric tobacco.
We know that many people in the UK just don't have the fact that Glass pipes is an effective way to smoke and improve public health.There is still a lot of misinformation and a lack of understanding.
