Riccardo Polosa is a researcher into cures to smoking related diseases and alternative tools for smoking cessation. His work contributed to a paper finding that "e-cigarettes were 95% less harmful than tobacco cigarettes". This finding has been criticized by The Lancet. Polosa has been a consultant for the e-cigarette distributor Arbi Group Srl.[1] According to a paper published in BMC Public Health he is, as of 2014, the most prolific author in the field of electronic cigarettes.[2] He is also the author of the first prospective randomized study with a control group that evaluated the efficacy and safety of electronic cigarettes on a sample of 300 smokers unwilling to quit.[3]
