Cigarettes vs. E-cigarettes
While smokers who use e-cigarettes are more likely to stop smoking, this research proposes they may simply be moving on to another dangerous habit. Studies have shown that vaping increases a wannabe-quitter’s chance of success. About 65% of vapers attempt to stop smoking, related to around 40% of smokers who do not use e-cigarettes.
Peter Hajek, director of the health and lifestyle research unit at Queen Mary University, said, “It’s categorically clear that e-cigarettes help smokers replace cigarettes.”
Dr. Aruni Bhatnagar, director of the American Heart Association’s Tobacco Research and Addiction Centre further said, “We just don’t know if moving to e-cigarettes is good enough to reduce the harm.”
