E-cigarettes a ‘good way to quit smoking’, Irish health authority advises
A new report on the success and cost-effectiveness of ways to give up cigarettes indicates e-cigs are a good way to quit smoking.
E-cigarettes could be a cost-effective way of helping people to quit smoking, according to an analysis conducted by a Dublin health authority.
Dublin’s Health Information and Quality Authority yesterday revealed that more people using e-cigarettes would lead to more people successfully kicking the habit.
In a 700-page report, it claimed e-cigarettes were cost-effective and could save taxpayers millions every year.
The analysis shows that increased uptake of e-cigarettes as an aid to quitting would increase the number of people who successfully quit compared with the existing situation in Ireland and would be cost-effective.
