Are e-cigarettes OK?

Will vaping lead you out of smoking - or into it?

If you used to smoke and now vape, e-cigarettes may be a step in the right direction. But watch out: the step between smoking and not smoking is smaller when you vape so it’s easier to slip back into the tobacco habit or fall into it for the first time. Research continues on the effects of vaping. 

From 2016, e-cigarettes will be regulated as medicines.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
