A new piece of research published in JAMA Network Open has found that more American doctors are talking to patients about switching from smoking to vaping – but only because the smokers are pushing for it.
The work also provided more evidence that doctors still have a woeful level of knowledge when it comes to electronic cigarettes.
The team from Rutgers University discovered that the clinicians are calling for more evidence about vaping’s safety and efficacy despite the overwhelming volume of proof being produced by independent UK academics.
The doctors are still reluctant to recommend vaping to smokers because they continue to labour under the misapprehension that the use of e-cigarettes is as equally harmful as smoking tobacco products.
