Need for more nuanced messaging on vaping, smoking

The latest Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS) shows that 14.1 percent of youth aged 13 to 15 are current vape users. This is a jump from 11 percent in 2015. This modest increase is enough to worry some health advocates, intensifying calls for greater regulation of vaping products. It is certainly the case that these kids should not be touching any sort of smoking or vaping paraphernalia. In that regard, more stringent vaping regulations might be warranted. However, things must be put in perspective when reporting about these trends.


18.50% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 14.1 million current smokers in Philippines 33.30% of men are current smokers but only 3.70% of women.
