In a study of cancer patients who smoke, those using e-cigarettes (in addition to traditional cigarettes) were more nicotine dependent and equally or less likely to have quit smoking traditional cigarettes than nonusers. Published online in Cancer, the findings raise doubts about the potential benefits of e-cigarettes for helping cancer patients give up smoking, according to a news release.
The rising use of e-cigarettes has raised many questions among patients and their healthcare providers including whether e-cigarette use helps or hinders quitting efforts. Even regulators are struggling with the complexities associated with e-cigarettes as they weigh the benefits and risks to the general population and subgroups of individuals.
