Aidez-nous à tester une nouvelle application iPhone

Nous recherchons des personnes, fumeuses et non-fumeuses, pour tester une nouvelle application iPhone.
Cette application a été développée par l'Institut de Santé Globale à l'Université de Genève.
Elle est destinée aux personnes qui souhaitent arrêter de fumer en étant soutenues par un ami ou un proche. Elle offre aussi la possibilité d'un challenge entre deux fumeurs ou fumeuses qui souhaitent arrêter de fumer en même temps.

Si vous êtes intéressé(e) à participer, veuillez voir les informations sous :

E-cigarettes save lives

Derek Yach - We need clear, unambiguous messages to smokers about the safety and benefits of e-cigs. An example is the March 2014 statement on the Royal College of Physicians website that the main benefit of e-cigarettes is that they provide inhalable nicotine in a formulation that mimics the behavioural components of smoking but has relatively little risk Switching completely from tobacco to e-cigarettes achieves much the same in health terms as does quitting smoking and all nicotine use completely. Furthermore risks associated with passive exposure to e-cigarette vapour are far less than those associated with passive exposure to tobacco smoke.'

If influential health officials were to make these points repeatedly, public sentiment towards e-cigs would shift quickly. And this could be done at the same time as strengthening anti-smoking measures.

Derek Yach is executive director of the Vitality Institute and previously headed tobacco control at the WHO.

My assumption was they were a ploy by the tobacco industry to hook more people into smoking under the guise of being a safer productthe notorious low-tar cigarette scam all over again. But as I talked to many e-cigarette users, known as vapers, conducted research (Journal of Public Health Policy, 2011) and reviewed a growing body of scientific evidence, I became convinced that e-cigarettes have dramatic potential for reducing disease and death caused by smoking.

Yet many in the antismoking movementin which I have been involved for decadesare conducting a misleading campaign against these products. And this campaign may be doing harm to public health. .. Read the whole article:

Addiction study shows mindfulness intervention boosts brain activation for healthy pleasures

How can people who are dependent on prescription opioids reduce their cravings? Learn to enjoy other aspects of their lives.

That's the key finding in a new study published in the Journal of Behavioral Medicine by Eric L. Garland, associate professor at the University of Utah College of Social Work. Garland and colleagues studied how an intervention program for chronic pain patients called Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE) decreased patients' desire for prescription drugs...
