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.

    It really surprises me how much money gets spent on expensive studies to prove what we already know.

    No!! It does? Really?!!? LMAO. Can not believe there was actually a study for this. Just ask a few vapers and use that money for a real study. Like to study the effects of vaping to shut the FDA’s mouth about ecigs.
