Vaccination for smoking
June 28, 2012 |
I’ve heard it a thousand times: smoking is bad and it’s addictive. But people still choose to smoke. When they want to quit there are lots of things that may help…
New research intends to stub out the pleasure people get from smoking altogether. The idea is to use a vaccine to produce antibodies that bind to nicotine, the chemical responsible for the feel-good effect. Although such a vaccine is years off, it could allow you to immunise your kids against taking up smoking. Would you want to do that?
