New Study Shows Electronic Cigarettes May Help Unmotivated Smokers Cut Down or Quit, Says Square

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 08, 2011

Square has long believed that their disposable electronic cigarettes can?and do?help people cut down or even stop smoking cigarettes. That idea was recently supported in an Italian study posted on the BMC Public Health website, according to a new article by the American Counsel of Science and Health (ACSH).

The ACSH article states that electronic cigarettes stood up favorably in this first clinical trial. Results indicate that the electronic devices may not only be more effective than traditional nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) at helping people who want to quit smoking; e-cigarettes may also help cigarette smokers reduce their smoking?even those who express no interest in kicking the habit.

The small clinical trial was conducted on 40 healthy adults, who smoked regularly and had no expressed intention of quitting. Intervention was limited to providing each smoker in the study group electronic cigarettes and conducting a baseline assessment and four follow-up clinic visits. The smokers were simply told to use the e-cigarettes as they pleased?but were not instructed to quit smoking regular cigarettes.

Over the next six months, 22.5 percent of the participants reported that they had completely quit smoking. Another 32.5 percent reported that they had cut down their cigarette consumption by at least half. In sum, over half of the smokers were able to quit or significantly cut down their cigarette use. This outcome is especially impressive, according to the article, considering that the six-month quit rate for approved cessation aids is well below 20 percent?and those results are derived from smokers who want to quit and are followed closely in a clinical setting.

?This trial simulated a real-life experience, where no motivation or support was offered to subjects to quit smoking,? said ACSH advisor Dr. Mike Siegel, professor at Boston University’s School of Public Health. ?This could well be groundbreaking.? Siegel indicated that he is excited to see the results of more extensive clinical trials, particularly involving subjects who are motivated to quit, stating, ?I am confident that the success rate will be significantly higher.?

Moving from regular cigarettes to e-cigs can be a good health move. Jean-Fran

Ex-Winston Cigarette Pitchman Joins the InLife Team to Help Bring Awareness to the Benefits of the Electronic Cigarette

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) March 2, 2010

Ex-Winston cigarette pitchman-turned-advocate for inLife electronic cigarettes David Goerlitz,(http://www.winstonmaninlife.com), is baffled as to why governmental and private health advocacy groups, which are tasked with guarding the public against tobacco product harm and promoting medical advancements, are not supporting the electronic cigarette as a logical and safer alternative for American smokers.

In fact, their lack of support for e-cig technology endangers current e-cig users by potentially forcing them back to using traditional tobacco cigarettes—the one product we know will kill over 400,000 Americans this year. There are now over 800,000 Americans using the e-cig, and with over 240,000,000 uses since the e-cig was introduced in the U.S. three years ago, as far as is known, there has not been a single incident of harm. With all the incredible results garnered thus far from everyday users and from the scientific testing of e-cig technology ( http://truthaboutecigs.com/studies.php) and its components and ingredients, do governmental agencies and health advocacy groups really believe that electronic cigarettes are not an incredibly logical alternative to tobacco cigarettes? How is this possible?

From 1981 until 1988, David Goerlitz played the lead in 42 ads that featured the rugged actor/model glamorizing cigarette smoking, taking Winston cigarettes from the number four selling brand all the way to number two. In November,1988, Mr. Goerlitz took a historic stand against the tobacco industry, publicly participating in the “Great American Smoke-Out”, condemning the tobacco industry’s advertising and embarking on a worldwide personal crusade to undo the damage his ads had done. Mr. Goerlitz has since been honored by the World Health Organization, The American Cancer Society, The American Lung Association, and The American Heart Association on both the national and local levels. Over the past several years, he has told his story to over 5,000,000 young people and adults throughout North America, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, and, most recently, Sweden.

According to Mr. Goerlitz, ?The electronic cigarette is now providing hundreds of thousands of Americans with the option of enjoying nicotine without the 66 known carcinogens, tar and other 6,000 chemicals that smokers ingest from tobacco cigarettes. The electronic cigarette contains only 13 ingredients, all of which have been generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA and have been in the U.S. food supply for generations.” Mr. Goerlitz is horrified that neither the FDA nor private health advocacy groups are even minimally supportive of this new nicotine alternative to tobacco cigarettes.

To date, there have been 16 scientific studies completed on the electronic cigarette (http://truthaboutecigs.com/studies.php), including the FDA and the National Cancer Institute?s own e-cig studies. Not one completed and published study has found any toxins or carcinogens at any levels that are harmful to humans. In fact, the FDA?s own e-cig study proved the electronic cigarette is up to 1,400 times safer than the smoking of tobacco cigarettes.

Mr. Goerlitz believes that the media has yet to accurately or fairly cover this story. Journalists that do have a sincere interest in learning how the e-cig is changing lives while larger powers attempt to “squash” this new technology will find this debate very intriguing reading as there are many, many U.S. citizens involved and effected.

How Can E Cigarettes Help You Conquer Your Fading New Year?s Resolution to Live Healthier? CigaretteReviews.org Offers The Following Tips

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 2, 2011

Exercise, especially for traditional cigarette smokers, is not an easy task to achieve. Millions of people have made New Year?s resolutions to stop smoking, and start exercising. At this time of the year many smokers have given up on this year?s resolution. However, there is something that may help resurrect the resolution for at least some. Electronic cigarettes are an alternative that help users achieve their resolution. E cigs provide smokers with a device that cuts out thousands of the carcinogens found in traditional cigarettes. E cigarettes lack many of the addictive carcinogens that lead to lung issues which make it more difficult for smokers who attempt to exercise.

Federal, state, and local governments are making it increasingly difficult to smoke traditional cigarettes in the US as well as foreign countries. Due to recent legislation, smoking cigarettes in many states across the country has been regulated to designated locations outside of businesses. This seems to add stress to smokers? lives. However, even with laws enforced by legislation most smokers still do not plan on quitting. People who smoke e cigarettes are excluded from these laws in many scenarios due to the fact that there are no chemicals dispersed when exhaled. Smokers who wish to smoke their e cigarette while walking on the treadmill at the local gym may be permitted as long as they check with gym employees beforehand. This might actually help some smokers remain at the gym. They will not have to go outside to smoke causing them to never go back in. When exhaling from an e cigarette water vapor is expelled instead of second hand smoke. This water vapor is harmless to others, and is also odorless. Smoking electronic cigarettes provide smokers with an alternative to smoking by providing them with a great way to smoke from a device that looks and tastes like a traditional cigarette. E cigs will not affect others, and will not interfere with a smoker?s New Year?s resolution to exercise.

It is proven that the traditional tobacco cigarette contains thousands of harmful carcinogens that, in time, cause life-threatening symptoms to users. Cancer, tumors, and cardiac problems result from these dangerous carcinogens contained in the traditional cigarette. Most electronic cigarettes have removed many of the harmful carcinogens found in traditional cigarettes. Most e cigarettes only contain small doses of nicotine. Some also contain Propylene Glycol, an additive deemed generally safe by the FDA, which is used to generate the vapor mist. Propylene Glycol is found in products such as baby wipes and some processed foods. This provides the user a chemical free smoking experience. E cigs also allow the user to choose the nicotine content and level they desire. Some users even make their own e liquid, or purchase e liquid from companies other than the maker of the e cig they purchase. However, many e cigarette brands sell refill cartridges that do not contain nicotine. Non-nicotine cartridges are great for smokers who have quit traditional cigarettes, but miss the physical habit of smoking. The refill cartridges even come in different flavors ranging from traditional tobacco to chocolate.

Smokers who are ready to resurrect their New Year?s resolutions to live healthier and exercise more may find that e cigarettes will help get them back on track. There are many e cigarette brands on the market. Users should determine which brand is right for them before making a decision. E cigarette reviews for many of the top brands are available on a variety of sites. These sites help users make an informed decision on which e cigarette brand is right for them.

Current cigarette smokers looking for an alternative to traditional cigarettes can view reviews for the top e cigarette brands. Electronic cigarettes can help many people succeed in their goal of exercising more this year.
