HAYWARD (KPIX 5) — A Bay Area startup is hoping to help smokers kick the habit using technology.
“Over five hundred fifty Americans die every year from smoking. Ninety-percent of all lung cancers are caused by cigarette smoking, so we really can make a difference,” Guy DiPierro, Founder of Chrono Therapeutics said.
Biotech start up Chrono Therapeutics in Hayward says their device is the key. It’s worn it like a transdermal nicotine patch but, it’s really a tiny computer that regulates the dosage.
