MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The best up-to-the minute academic research and newsworthy articles on e-cigarettes can now be found online and for free on one expertly curated site.
Ecigclick.co.uk rounds up what smokers, ex-smokers and even non-smokers need to know about the trend which has revolutionized the UK's smoking habits - and threatened the livelihoods of the tobacco giants worldwide.
The articles and important opinion pieces on e-cigs and e-liquid are collated from 'respectable' sources such as the British Medical Journal and various international Health Policy Research centres as well as mainstream news resources including Reuters, the BBC, Forbes and the NY Times.
Thanks to the accessibility of the website's Research and Resource List (www.ecigclick.co.uk/e-cigarette-research-ultimate-resource-list/), the content will benefit the general public as well as researchers, journalists and academics interested in studying the subject. In fact, the editor of the site's Research and Resource List encourages anyone looking for a particular study or news resource to make contact and he will attempt to trace it then make it visible for the rest of the community.
Jon Williams, owner of Ecigclick.co.uk said: "There's just so much conflicting information on e-cigs out there in society. One minute they are being praised for their potential to save thousands of lives by getting people away from cigarettes, then the next there are warnings about passive vaping fears.
"By making available the latest public research on the subject we can try to clear up some of the confusion for people and, at the same time, encourage them to inform themselves and make their own minds up. It's such a popular and newsworthy subject after all and one which has powerful lobbying groups on both sides of the health argument."
Ecigclick's research is balanced in that it links to articles which are critical of the practice of using e-cigarettes (or 'vaping' as it's commonly known) as well as written pieces which support the practice.
Figures, produced by ASH in May this year (which supports the use of e-cigarettes as a harm reduction method for withdrawal from cigarettes) show there are around 2.6 million adult users of e-cigarettes in Great Britain today. Nearly two out of five users are ex-smokers, making that around 1.1 million of the total number of e-cigarette users. The remainder use both e-cigs and tobacco - many in a bid to reduce their overall tobacco consumption.
Such is the popularity of e-cigarettes that 'vape' was the Oxford English Dictionary's word of the year in 2014.
Meanwhile, Ecigclick.co.uk is one of the biggest blogs of its type in the UK. They have been providing user guides and information on e-cigarettes and e-liquid since 2010. They also take a detailed look at new e-cig technologies being introduced.
There's also a section on updated international legislation concerning e-cigs and their permitted use in public spaces. The sites users are encouraged to share their experience and help fellow papers by leaving feedback on various vaping products.
