A recent report from the Journal of the American Chemical Society, published August 19, 2015, details a brand-new approach to quitting smoking by using nicotine eating bacteria.
Most people who smoke cigarettes know smoking is bad for their health, but quitting is notoriously hard to do. Kicking the butt causes withdrawal, which can be uncomfortable. It often means making multiple attempts before finally being able to quit the habit.
Tobacco use is one of the leading causes of death in America and for the 450 million smokers that exist today there are approximately 450,000 smoking-related deaths per year. While smoking is a definite risk, many people have chosen an alternate nicotine source: E-cigarettes.
E-cigarettes are electronic smoking devices that emit vapor from heated cartridges, which may or may not contain liquid nicotine and/or flavored liquid. So, while it mimics the same behavior of smoking a regular cigarette, users do not inhale the harmful chemicals and additives found in most tobacco.
