    Review of evidence finds e-cigarettes may help smokers quit

    This "Cochrane Review" was presented to the recent ecig summit by Hajek.

    Press report here
    Review of evidence finds e-cigarettes may help smokers quit | Reuters

    "(Reuters) - Evidence suggests e-cigarettes help smokers quit, but more research is needed to confirm this and find out if "vaping" nicotine is better than using patches or gum, scientists said on Wednesday.

    In an international review of available evidence, researchers found a paucity of robust scientific studies on e-cigarettes and their capacity to help people stop smoking, but said data so far pointed at likely benefits."....


    Apparently this is the lead article and the whole paper will be presented next week in the Cochrane Library.

    It's mentioned in a BBC article.
    BBC News - E-cigarettes 'help smokers quit or cut down'
    E-cigarettes can help smokers stop or reduce their habit, a respected international review has confirmed.

    The first Cochrane review to examine the products considered two randomised trials with data from 662 current smokers.

    The review authors, from the UK and New Zealand, said the results needed to be expanded on by other studies.

    Public health doctors said they remained concerned that the devices could reverse progress on smoking.
    Of course the public health doctors must remain concerned.
    But the UK's Faculty of Public Health vice-president, Dr John Middleton, said: "Our position remains that while e-cigarettes may help smokers who want to quit, we don't yet have enough evidence of the impact they are having on other people.
