Study: E-cigs don’t help patients quit smoking

A study published online Monday by the American Cancer Society determined that electronic cigarettes were not effective in helping cancer patients quit smoking traditional cigarettes.

Authors of the study in the peer-reviewed journal Cancer said their findings “raise doubts about the potential benefits of e-cigs for helping cancer patients give up smoking.”

The authors, based at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, studied 1,074 cancer patients who smoked and were enrolled between 2012 and 2013 in a tobacco treatment program within a comprehensive cancer center.
