Toxic E-Cigarette Carcinogens Found

Health Buzz: New Toxic E-Cigarette Carcinogens Found

You may want to think twice before you vape: Researchers have discovered two carcinogens never-before detected in e-cigarette vapor, according to a new study.

The researchers, from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, also detailed the effects that temperature, type and age of a device have on e-cigarette emission levels, noting some varieties could release more harmful chemicals than others. The study was published Wednesday in Environmental Science and Technology.

Specifically, the study examined the thermal decomposition of two solvents in most e-cigarettes, propylene glycol and glycerin. When heated (vaporized), these solvents release toxic chemicals like acrolein and formaldehyde. Researchers also found significant levels of 31 harmful chemical compounds, including the probable carcinogens propylene oxide and glycidol, which had not been detected in e-cigarette vapor before.

I saw that and got interested so did a bit of digging. It turns out, those are the oxidation products of the liquid used to cause the vape unit to make a visible vapor. I see people on the street vaping without the white cloud coming out and assume that if you don't go for the special effects you don't have to worry about those two compounds.

I have had this argument so many time. I remember one time it was in a classroom setting and the person leading the class was a nurse. She was telling people how much better e-cigs were for you over Cigarettes. She had no dats and finally she just admitted that she was reading from a sheet provided by the insurance company. Lame.

It figures.

There are no advantages to vaping anyway - especially now.
