E-cigarettes aren't a good option after all!

E-cigarettes aren't a good option after all!”

But recent research from the University of California, San Francisco now reveals that we may have more to worry about when it comes to teenage use of e-cigarettes - beyond addiction and the possibility of transitioning to traditional cigarettes.

He warned some of the cancer-causing chemicals were found in the bodies of teens who used flavoured e-cigarettes without nicotine.

"Although the pairs of e-cigarettes may be less unsafe than tobacco smoke, our results can be used to challenge the idea that the vapor electronic cigarettes safe, because numerous volatile organic compounds that we identified are carcinogenic", write the researchers in their study.

"Although smoking even one cigarette is concerning, becoming an established smoker in adolescence is of substantial clinical and public health concern and is strongly associated with continuing to smoke regularly", they continued.

The Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association responded to the study citing a government report from January that found there's no available evidence e-cigarette use is associated with cancer.

Monday's study shows vaping delivers harmful chemicals and potentially harmful chemicals.

The chemicals are not listed on the ingredients of the vape liquid. "But when they're heated to the high temperatures required for vaporization, they can produce toxic substances that are potentially carcinogenic", he said.

As the popularity of e-cigarettes continues to grow, a new warning comes from researchers: Teenagers who try vaping are ingesting numerous same chemicals that make traditional cigarettes so deadly.

They tested their urine and saliva and asked questions about cigarette use. Those who used both types of cigarettes showed levels of toxic compounds three times higher than those who only used e-cigarettes, who in turn showed levels of toxic compounds three times higher than the non-smokers. And those who used only e-cigarettes had much higher levels than those who used neither product. The team later concluded that the "e-cigarettes do not divert from, and may encourage, cigarette smoking". The National Center for Biotechnology Information says,"Acrylonitrile is a highly poisonous compound used widely in the manufacture of plastics, adhesives and synthetic rubber". Some studies show it can play a part in bringing about lung cancer, although the EPA says there is not enough data to show whether it causes cancer in people.

Among the compounds researchers have found acrolein, Acrylonitrile, CROTONALDEHYDE, propylene oxide and acrylamide, which belong to the class of chemicals called volatile organic compounds (VOCS).

Last week, a study of almost 70,000 people found that daily e-cigarette use can double the risk for heart attack.

"The way they advertise them is they have different flavors and different flashy packages so they look more like candy", Meza said.

ABC News reported, researchers discovered that acrylonitrile was higher in fruit-flavored e-cigarettes and that was the most popular product among the adolescents.

The same CDC report found that only 2.2 percent of middle-schoolers and eight percent of high-schoolers had smoked traditional cigarettes in the past 30 days.
