Major new health warning issued to vapers over smoke from e-cigarettes

Major new health warning issued to vapers over smoke from e-cigarettes

Vaping could cause cancer and heart disease, according to a new study.

"We know from talking to teachers that in schools where smoking rates are high in the local community, cigarettes are sold to younger children by teen smokers in order to maintain their own smoking".

A recent study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine found e-cigarettes could help adult smokers quit, but could serve as a "gateway" for youngers smokers to other tobacco products.

For another part of the experiment, the scientists exposed cultured human cells to large quantities of nicotine in a lab and found similar effects on DNA damage and fix. They also exposed the mice to nicotine and solvents separately.

Despite this, e-cigarette smokers could still have a higher risk than nonsmokers of developing lung and bladder cancers and heart diseases.

Typically, an e-cigarette is filled with chemicals like propylene glycol, glycerine, nicotine, and flavorings such as menthol or mint.

The main cancer risk with tobacco cigarettes is caused by the release of a number of carcinogenic compounds when they are burned and inhaled.

To begin the study, the researchers tested how known cancer-causing chemicals found in regular cigarettes damaged a DNA sample. On the one hand, there are doctors and advocates who insist that vaping is a relatively safe, appealing way for smokers to wean themselves off much more risky tobacco products.




The researchers have now launched long-term experiments to look at the development of tumours in mice exposed to vapour from e-cigarettes, but Tang does not expect to have answers any time soon. It also retarded DNA fix functions and proteins in the lungs.

Battery-powered e-cigs have been widely promoted as a safer alternative to cigarettes because they do not burn tobacco - but scientists now warn the nicotine in them is far from harmless.

Some experts not involved in the study aren't so enthusiastic about the findings.

FDA clearance would mark a major milestone in efforts by both the industry and government officials to provide alternative tobacco products to U.S. smokers.

Youth charity Fast Forward said some adults think they are "doing young people a favour" when buying them tobacco.

While tobacco smoke contains a host of risky chemicals, e-cig liquid consists only of nicotine and relatively harmless solvents.

Vaping may raise the risk of cancer because it leads to DNA damage, even though it contains fewer carcinogens than tobacco smoke, a United States study has found. They found remarkable differences in levels of potentially toxic chemicals among e-cigarette users and smokers.
