Number of young women vaping daily in the UK more than triples

The number of young women vaping every day in the UK more than tripled in the last year, according to government figures. Data released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed that one in 15 women (6.7%) aged 16-24 vaped daily in 2022 – up from fewer than one in 50 (1.9%) in 2021 – with young women overtaking their male counterparts for e-cigarette usage.
