For those of you who don't know IQOS is the newest device for smoking cessation. It has been cleared by the FDA for sale in the United States for summer of 2019.

IQOS uses heetsticks to heat tobacco to 350°C, without combustion or smoke. Because the tobacco is not burned, the amount of harmful chemicals are significantly reduced compared to traditional cigarettes.

FDA
The aerosol produced by the IQOS Tobacco Heating System contains fewer toxic chemicals than cigarette smoke, and many of the toxins identified are present at lower levels than in cigarette smoke. For example, the carbon monoxide exposure from IQOS aerosol is comparable to environmental exposure, and levels of acrolein and formaldehyde are 89% to 95% and 66% to 91% lower than from combustible cigarettes, respectively.

As for vaping, studies conducted by the Royal College of Physicians that show that e-cigarettes available today are unlikely to exceed 5% of the harm from smoking tobacco.
