REDWOOD CITY, Calif–A new study by the medical journal; The Lancet, shows
that electronic cigarettes can be as successful in helping smokers quit,
compared to traditional nicotine patches. The finding are based on 657 test
subjects that were split into three groups: one group was given
e-cigarettes with 16 milligrams of nicotine, another was given nicotine
patches, and the third group was supplied with placebo e-cigarettes.

After the three month trial, researchers saw that 7.3% of the e-cigarette
group had quit smoking, compared to 5.8% of patch users, and 4.1% of the
placebo users.
