New research says e-cigarettes might not be so bad

Posted: Updated:

We've heard a lot of negatives about e-cigarettes, mainly concern that they could become a gateway for kids to start smoking.      

But, a new study, and it's a big one, finds a big positive for smokers trying to kick the habit.      

British researchers interviewed nearly 6,000 smokers trying to quit without help from a doctor.       They found 1/5 of those using e-cigarettes were able to quit, compared to only one-tenth of those who used nicotine patches or gum.        

This study was published in the journal called ‘Addiction', and it was not funded by any e-cigarette companies.
