A research duo from the University of California, San Francisco reviewed the findings of 38 studies conducted across the globe into e-cigarette use, and concluded that smokers who use the devices were 28 percent less likely to quit smoking tobacco.The vapour is inhaled – "vaped" – and exhaled, much like a cigarette.Peter Hajek, direct of the Queen Mary University of London's Tobacco Dependence Research Unit, called it "grossly misleading".The work, he said, looked only at current smokers who had at some point used an e-cigarette -- thus excluding any former smokers who may have used exactly such a device to quit.
