E-cigarettes don’t help in cutting overall smoking cessation rates

Washington, March 25: A new study has revealed that electronic cigarettes don’t lower cigarette consumption after one year.

The research done by University California, San Francisco has found that more women, younger adults and people with less education used e-cigarettes, which was not associated with a change in cigarette consumption.

Rachel A. Grana, Ph.D., M.P.H., and colleagues said that their data add to the current evidence that e-cigarettes may not increase rates of smoking cessation and regulations should prohibit advertising claiming or suggesting that e-cigarettes are effective smoking cessation devices until claims are supported by scientific evidence.
