Can va­p­ing help?

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY -

Peo­ple who used e-cig­a­rettes were more likely to kick the habit than those who didn’t, a new study found. Nico­tine patches, gums and med­i­ca­tions are known to aid smok­ing cessation, but there’s no con­sen­sus on whether va­p­ing de­vices can help an­ti­smok­ing ef­forts. The U.S. re­search is the largest look yet at elec­tronic cig­a­rette users and it found e-cig­a­rettes played a role in help­ing peo­ple quit. “It’s ab­so­lutely clear that e-cig­a­rettes help smok­ers re­place cig­a­rettes,” said Pe­ter Ha­jek, di­rec­tor of the health and life­style re­search unit at Queen Mary Univer­sity in Lon­don, who wasn’t part of the study.
