Some preliminary testing on the effects of e-cigs is finding marked benefits over placebos for people replacing tobacco cigarettes with them.  As reported on ScienceDaily.com last week, Dr Lynne Dawkins of the University of East London gave e-cigs to 85 regular smokers and tested their mental and emotional state as the effects of the e-cigs took shape.

Some of the e-cigs had nicotine in them and some had a non-nicotine solution which acted as the placebo for the trial.  Some of the Guinea pigs didn’t use the e-cigs at all and only held them in hand.  The results?  Men with nicotine e-cigs saw an improvement in mood and reduction in cravings beyond what men with the placebo e-cigs felt.  Women saw no difference between the nicotine and the placebo e-cigs when it came to cravings and mood.

For both sexes, however, their working memory was better using the nicotine rich e-cigs.  Working memory is present task and goal-oriented memory and informational organization (similar to a computer’s RAM).  An inability to concentrate brought on by attempting to quit traditional smoking is often a factor in whether people return to the habit.  This could be a sign that e-cigs can be use to fight that particular drawback for quitters.

Stay tuned for more as more research on e-cigs is done.
