New Study: E-cigarettes for smoking cessation

By on Sep 13, 2013 in Features, Gilla Blog | 0 comments

A new study published on September 7th by The Lancet, one of the world’s leading medical journals, concluded that “e-cigarettes, with or without nicotine, were modestly effective at helping smokers to quit, with similar achievement of abstinence as with nicotine…” The study also stressed that more study is needed but acknowledged that “a review deemed e-cigarettes to be very unlikely to pose  significant risks to smokers … and that they would have no greater risk of adverse events than nicotine patches.”

The study has already triggered a number of national media responses from sources like Forbes, NBC News, the Huffington Post and the CBC.
