We've heard a lot of negativesabout e-cigarettes, mainly concern that they could become a gateway for kids tostart smoking.
But, a new study, and it'sa big one, finds a big positive for smokers trying to kick the habit.
British researchersinterviewed 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 publishedin the journal called 'Addiction', and it was not funded by any e-cigarettecompanies.
