International study: Flavored e-cigarettes are twice as effective as tobacco in helping adults quit smoking

According to a report on June 30, according to a foreign news report, a large-scale international study involving nearly 18,000 participants showed that flavored e-cigarettes are twice as effective as tobacco flavors in helping adults quit smoking. In addition, flavoring e-cigarettes will not cause more young people to smoke.

At the time of this study, New Zealand’s bill to regulate smoking is awaiting progress in the Parliament’s order documents. The bill stipulates that general retailers, such as dairy factories, supermarkets and service stations, are only allowed to sell three types of electronic cigarette products, tobacco, mint and menthol.

“This study overwhelmingly proves that flavoring helps more adults quit smoking and does not attract more young people to smoke. Given this convincing study, our MPs now need to amend the bill, and Maintain the convenience for adults to use popular flavors. Undoubtedly, flavored e-cigarettes are the key to New Zealand’s smoke-free future,” said Ben Pryor, co-owner of VAPO and Alt, New Zealand’s largest e-cigarette brand.

This study, titled “The Association of Flavored Electronic Cigarette Intake and Subsequent Smoking Initiation and Quitting,” has been published in the Jama Network-Journal of the American Medical Association.

The researchers concluded: “Flavored e-cigarettes have nothing to do with the increase in the number of young smokers, but are related to a greater factor for adults to quit smoking. Those who prefer non-tobacco flavors are more likely to use tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes. 2.3 times as many people.”

“We only want our government to follow the evidence, not the emotions. As the researchers concluded, “increasing smoking cessation among people aged 18 to 54 has a substantial impact on population health.” The way to achieve this goal is to ensure that Smokers eager to quit smoking offer a variety of electronic cigarette flavors. Adults like to season, and they are very effective. Mr. Pryor said.
