E-Cigarettes Won’t Help You Quit, Study Finds
March 25, 2014~ Contrary to some advertising claims, electronic cigarettes don’t help people quit or cut down on smoking, a new study says. Users of e-cigarettes inhale vaporized nicotine but not tobacco smoke. The unregulated devices have been marketed as smoking-cessation tools, but studies to date have been inconclusive on that score, the study noted. “When used by a broad sample of smokers under ‘˜real world’ conditions, e-cigarette use did not significantly increase the chances of successfully quitting cigarette smoking,” said lead researcher Dr. Pamela Ling, an associate professor at the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at University of California, San Francisco. These findings’”based on nearly 1,000 smokers’” are consistent with other studies and contradict the claims frequently found in e-cigarette advertising, she said.
