Public health implications of vaping in USA: Prof Levy’s SAVM model predicts 38.9 million life-years saved, and 1.8 million deaths avoided by 2060.

“People who regularly use vapes have much higher smoking cessation rates” explained Prof David Levy at the recent No Smoke Summit.

This is the key to the lifesaving potential of promoting nicotine vaping products to smokers who are struggling to quit cigarettes. Prof Levy’s newly published SAVM simulation model calculates deaths avoided and life years gained by 2060, if adult smokers switched to significantly less harmful vapes. The result? 1.8 million lives saved, and 38.9 million life years gained.
