E-cigarettes make patients more dependent on nicotine
People affected by cancer who smoke e-cig to quit smoking become, in fact, more dependent on nicotine. A team of scientists has discovered.
The study of cancer patients has uncovered that electronic cigarettes give patients more nicotine dependent than non-smokers.
The results published online by the magazine Cancer show that the e-cig does not help cancer patients quit smoking, even make them more dependent on nicotine. “Because of the risks of smoking persistent, all cancer patients who smoke should be advised to stop,” the doctors say.
