Experts Suspect if E-Cigarettes Offer Claimed Benefits: Report

A new study published in the British journal Lancet has shed light on a small sample of smokers. It is being claimed that it is a hint that e-cigarettes could be more effective as compared to nicotine patches, when it comes to helping people relinquish smoking.

Where e-cigarettes are being considered as beneficial in this study, another research has presented the same as a taboo. The latter study was conducted by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They found that more number of children and teens were giving a try to electronic cigarettes these days.

If seen in general, smoking was a primary reason of many avoidable deaths. While people are using e-cigarettes with a purpose to quit the traditional cigarettes, the `United States Food and Drug Administration' (FDA) has not approved e-cigarettes as yet as a strategy to quit smoking.

It has been found that e-cigarettes are now again being focused at by scientists so as to find a way to end their trend.

Professor Igor Burstyn from Drexel University was of the view, "I wouldn't worry at all if someone was smoking one of these by my kids. From a pure health perspective, these are not as bad as a cigarette".
