Vaping products containing nicotine are regulated under the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 (TRPR), and need to be notified to the MHRA and comply to certain standards (for example, nicotine content is limited to 20 milligrams per millilitre (mg/mL)) before they can be legally sold in the UK.
Vaping products that do not contain nicotine come under the General Product Safety Regulations 2005, enforced by local authority Trading Standards departments.
According to Cancer Research UK: “There is no good evidence that vaping causes cancer.
“Some potentially dangerous chemicals have been found in e-cigarettes but levels are usually low and generally far lower than in tobacco cigarettes. Exposure may be the same as people who use nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) such as patches or gum.”

Popcorn lung (bronchiolitis obliterans) is a serious, but uncommon, lung disease caused by a build-up of scar tissue in the lungs which hinders the flow of air.
It got its name when workers in a popcorn factory developed the condition after breathing in the chemical diacetyl which was used to give popcorn a buttery flavour.
According to Cancer Research UK:
- E-cigarettes don’t cause the condition known as popcorn lung
- There have been no confirmed cases of popcorn lung reported in people who use e-cigarettes
Diacetyl is banned as a vape flavouring in both the UK and the EU but it is one of the thousands of chemicals found in cigarette smoke.
