According to the Philippine mainstream media Daily Enquirer, about 90000 people in the Philippines die of smoking every year. More than 76% of smokers want to quit, but the success rate is only 4%. The recognition of the potential of electronic cigarette smoking cessation and harm reduction by the medical community in the Philippines undoubtedly gives many people hope.

Not only ordinary people, but also Filipino politicians and businessmen are sparing no effort to popularize the positive knowledge of electronic cigarettes to the public. For example, Sebastian Baste Duterte, Deputy Mayor of Davao City in the Philippines, and Isko Moreno, Mayor of Manila and presidential candidate, are among them, and they successfully quit cigarettes by switching to electronic cigarettes.

 

 

At present, the Philippines is considering taking reasonable regulatory measures on electronic cigarettes to regulate the electronic cigarette industry, so as to ensure that more smokers use safe electronic cigarettes to reduce harm. Joaqui Gallardo, spokesman of the Philippines' Vaper AKO, said: "We must admit that it is a more scientific method to control smoking to recommend electronic cigarettes and other harm reducing products to smokers. The United States, Britain, New Zealand and other countries have conducted sound scientific research on electronic cigarettes before they finally accepted electronic cigarettes."

In December 2021, the Philippine Senate approved the electronic cigarette regulation bill and submitted it to the President for signature. While regulating the production and sales of  products, the bill also further emphasizes the protection of minors, such as prohibiting the sale, promotion and promotion of electronic cigarette products within 100 meters around schools and playgrounds.

It is worth mentioning that Vicente Sotto III, Speaker of the Senate of the Philippines, is a strong supporter of this bill, because his brother successfully quit smoking by switching to electronic cigarettes and other harm reducing products. According to the Daily Enquirer, the bill, once passed, will help 16 million smokers stay away from tobacco hazards.
