E-Cigarettes: Friend or Foe?

E-cigarettes are viewed as a great tool for cessation or as a gateway device to greater use of tobacco products. Research in a California study involving more than 1000 smokers aged 18-59 has found those who ever used e-cigarettes are less likely to cut back on cigarette consumption in the future. Most public health personnel are concerned about these devices–especially as popularity grows in youth. More research is needed.

PositiveTip: For good health avoid all forms of smoking, including e-cigarettes.
