Mayo Clinic recommends nicotine inhaler not e-cigs to smoker who wants to quit

The Mayo Clinic just published an excellent answer in the Chicago Tribune in response to question by smoker who is considering using nicotine inhaler or e-cigs to help quit smoking.  The Mayo Clinic explained that e-cigs contain toxic substances, do not deliver a controlled amount of nicotine, are not regulated, are not effective in helping people quit smoking, and not enough is known about safety of e-cigs.  They recommend nicotine inhaler and not e-cigs.  The full question and response is here.
