In this episode Jamie Hartmann-Boyce and Nicola Lindson interview Professor Jasjit Ahluwalia about his team’s recent study on the effect of pod e-cigarettes vs cigarettes on carcinogen exposure among African American and Latinx smokers (Pulvers, 2020, see links to all studies in short description above). They also talk through three other studies: Schiebein et al, an exploratory non-randomized study of an e-cigarette intervention with people accessing a homeless supported temporary accommodation service; Orga-Hess et al’s study which tested a method for evaluating the effects of e-cigarettes on quit-related motivation and behaviour; and a study by Yingst et al which explored the acceptability of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) among HIV positive smokers.
