E-cigarettes Best Other Cessation Tools

No authors listed. Cancer Discov.


Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) may be an effective tool for smoking cessation. In a randomized trial, researchers found that 18% of those assigned to use e-cigarettes were smoke-free after a year, compared with 9.9% of those assigned to nicotine replacement therapies such as patches and gum. However, those in the e-cigarette group were more likely to continue using the products, maintaining their addiction to nicotine.
