Despite a growing body of research on electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), there has been much debate about the effects of their use. While there may be potential for e-cigarettes to support smoking cessation, there are also concerns about possible adverse health effects, renormalization of smoking and tobacco uptake among youth, and other unforeseen consequences of their use.
RECIG investigators from OTRU and CAMH will present key findings from the study and an international expert panel will also present on leading edge research. For more information and to register, visit our Events page.

Many researchers use a definition of quit attempt that requires any attempt at cessation to last longer than 24 hours. Using data from OTRU’s Ontario Tobacco Survey, this update examines factors associated with making quit attempts that last more than 24 hours compared to those of shorter duration.
This infographic is based on the findings of a study by OTRU researchers that assessed air quality using multiple ambient air measures and a biomarker for exposure in both indoor and outdoor waterpipe cafes in Toronto, Canada.
