e-Cigs Don't Help People Quit, May Be Harmful, Clinicians Say
Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and other heated tobacco delivery devices are harmful and they don't help people quit smoking, the European Respiratory Society (ERS) says in a new statement. The international group of respiratory doctors and scientists said that programs that use the devices to help smokers quit "are based on incorrect assumptions and undocumented claims."
@gilli Evidence-based tobacco dependence treatments already exist and are safe and cost-effective, and we must utilise this. Nothing should enter the lungs besides clean air — we must not give up on smokers.
