E cigarettes may cut tobacco use suggested by a recent study published in the American Journal of Health Behavior but further research required.
Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/19/2013 -- E cigarettes might give confidence to regular smokers to considerably cut down on conventional cigarettes, says a study published in the American Journal of Health Behavior. The direct study was funded by a leading e cigarettes brand. Mitchell Nides, who co-led the research with Scott Leischow of the Mayo Clinic, called the results "a very good signal to go forward" with more research on whether e-cigarettes can lead to long-term cessation of tobacco cigarette use.
The study found that out of a total of 28 adult smokers nearly 90% reduced their use of tobacco cigarettes for a week time by using smokeless cigarettes. Nearly one third cut their tobacco cigarette use in half and some participants claimed that they are not smoking traditional cigarettes at all.” There was no follow up on this though”, said Nides. On the whole, the mean cutback in participants' cigarettes smoked per day was 39 percent, according to the study.
Dr. Richard Carmona, who was a fierce critic of tobacco as surgeon general under President George W. Bush, had said somewhere,” we agree that no health claims should be made" for e-cigarettes "without the appropriate science" to support them. But, he added, "if we stopped tobacco use today, 80 percent of the lung cancers would go away, not today, but in the future”. The conclusion of the study implied that though the result has been positive for the users but more toxicological research of electric cigarette is required.
