A novel study demonstrates that electronic cigarettes don’t help people give up or reduce smoking. This report has been published against a T.V advertisement which declared that electronic cigarettes will serve as a smoking termination tool.
The e-cigarette smoker breathe nicotine instead of tobacco. Dr. Pamela Ling, an associate professor at the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education stated that researchers executed an experiment on nearly 1,000 smokers under “the-real world” situation. The outcome of that experiment demonstrated that e-cigarette did not drastically raise the possibilities of successful relinquishment of smoking.
Ling said that the advertisement proposed that e-cigarette are useful for the process of smoking cessation. The Government should ban this sort of advertisement unless the brand does not have any supporting scientific proof. Expert examined the data of 494 smokers among which 88 used e-cigarette and after one year merely 14 percent smokers quit smoking.
This result verified that there is no distinction between the people who used e-cigarette and who did not. There is no direct relation between the usage of e-cigarette and quitting smoking. Researchers also considered the quantity of cigarette taken every day.
Furthermore, the study revealed that the people who are less educated is most expected to use e-cigarette.
On the other hand, Dr. Michael Siegel a professor of community health sciences at Boston University School of Public Health stated that there is a defect in a study and people should not take it seriously.
The report is printed in the March’s issue of JAMA Internal Medicine.
