E-cigarettes more effective for smoking cessation than conventional nicotine-replacement therapy

Nicotine e-cigarettes are more effective in helping people quit smoking than conventional nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT), according to the latest Cochrane review co-led by a University of Massachusetts Amherst public health and health policy researcher. The review of studies published on the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews found high certainty evidence that e-cigarettes, which allow users to "vape" nicotine instead of smoke it, lead to better chances of quitting smoking than patches, gums, lozenges or other traditional NRT.
