Latest Study Linking Vapes to Smoking Cessation


A new study by Penn State College of Medicine and Virginia Commonwealth University researchers, reiterated that by switching from from smoking to vaping, tobacco users may reduce their exposure to certain carcinogens found in cigarettes.

The study titled, “Effect of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems on Cigarette Abstinence in Smokers with no Plans to Quit: Exploratory Analysis of a Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial,” followed 520 smokers who were looking to reduce their cigarette consumption by at least 50% but had no plans to quit.

The research team analyzed whether the use of a number of nicotine-containing e-cigarettes reduced cigarette consumption, by randomly assigning participants with products containing 0 mg/mL (placebo), 8 mg/mL or 36 mg/mL nicotine, or a cigarette substitute with no nicotine, electronics or aerosols. They also encouraged the participants to reduce their cigarette consumption throughout the length of the study.

At the six month mark, the researchers found that those participants who had received the 36 mg/mL nicotine ENDS, which has similar nicotine delivery to a cigarette, were more likely to remain abstinent from cigarettes than the participants in the other groups.
