Quit smoking, electronic cigarettes and nicotine: Mayo Clinic Radio

On the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, Dr. Jon Ebbert, associate director of the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center, talks about smoking cessation, nicotine addiction and electronic cigarettes.

This interview originally aired August 3, 2019.

Cigarette smoking has fallen to its lowest point in recorded history, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But there’s a new problem at hand: electronic cigarettes. These battery-powered devices were introduced to the market to help smokers switch from traditional cigarettes. They work by heating a liquid into an aerosol that a user inhales. They are not an aid to quit smoking that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Using e-cigarettes, also called vaping, has become increasingly popular among teens and young adults.
