“Every shift, during my years as a hospital RN, I cared for patients suffering with smoking-related diseases.
I designed VAEP to assist the public and health professionals with learning about vaping as a harm reduction strategy for smokers.”

Basic vaping information

Everything you need to know about vaping as a harm reduction strategy. This Shareables collection covers smoking, tobacco harm reduction, smoking cessation, nicotine and oppression of the information.

Health professionals

Patients are vulnerable people who rely on their care givers to stay current in the scientific evidence to ensure informed decision making. VAEP challenges health professionals to review the evidence on tobacco harm reduction.

Vaping & lung injuries

From August to September 2019, an outbreak of vaping related lung injuries occurred in the USA. The cause was illegal THC cartridges and had nothing to do with vaping nicotine.

Adolescents and adult activities

It is normal teenage behaviour to experiment with adult taboos. This is the first generation to encounter vaping. We explore the reasons youth try vaping, the consequences and unintended harm reduction in regards to smoking uptake.

Downloads

To help you educate yourself and others, we have designed papers, infographics, rack cards and lots more! Look through our selection of free items and download the PDF for printing.

Educate your neighbours
invite your community to our website

Facebook ads are an inexpensive and easy way to educate YOUR communty about vaping. For as little as $25, we will target the country, state/province or manicipalities of your choice.

Main Stream Media
fear-based misinformation

In 2019, CBC produced a series called “Vape FAIL”. We corrected the initial article, “The Road to Vaping”. We have added the significant data they omitted, corrected their errors and uncover their integrity.

The cost of smoking effects all of us.

Whether it’s suffering from a smoking-related disease, the loss of a loved one or the strain on healthcare, society benefits when smokers choose harm reduction.

Vapers are better educated about vaping than most of the population because they have sought out the information that is available outside of mainstream media and outside of the healthcare systems. Thousands of studies, reports and surveys have investigated vaping and it is consistently found to be fraction the risk of smoking. Yet, universal health care, health related nonprofits and governments are failing to to inform the public and healthcare professionals. Health professionals have the skills to review the literature, but they all have busy lives and few have time for independent research; for the most part, they remain misinformed.

Further, what people are learning from mainstream media, social media and official statements from authority is inaccurate, incomplete and focuses on fear. This is why VAEP was created, to teach people the truth so they can make informed decisions. Everyone has someone in their life that they care about who smokes. A well informed public will encourage smokers to reduce their risk by 95% and switch to vaping.

Our learning resources are based in the scientific evidence yet are formatted so anyone can understand them. Everything we produce we make available to the public free of charge. This makes it challenging to cover our operating costs and we turn to the public we serve for our revenue. Your donations ensure we can continue delivering effective vaping education.
