Teens exposed to five toxic chemicals from E-cigarettes Video

E-Cigarette smoking

E-Cigarette smoking

"Although e-cigarette vapor may be less hazardous than tobacco smoke, our findings can be used to challenge the idea that e-cigarette vapor is safe, because numerous volatile organic compounds we identified are carcinogenic", the study read. Compared with controls, e-cigarette-only users had significantly higher excretion of metabolites of acrylonitrile, acrolein, propylene oxide, acrylamide, and crotonaldehyde (all P 0.05).

It was the first known study to report on the presence of potentially cancer-causing compounds in the bodies of adolescents who use e-cigarettes.

Those who used both types of cigarette had significantly higher levels of risky chemicals, including acrylonitrile, acrolein, propylene oxide, acrylamide and crotonaldehyde, the team reported.

"We touch on vaping and electronic cigarettes and how electronic cigarettes also have some chemicals that have been found to cause cancer", Meza said.

The study, published the latest edition of the medical journal Pediatrics, found that levels of toxic organic compounds in tested teens were up to three times higher on average in the e-cigarette users compared with a non-smoking, non-vaping control group, UCSF said. Teens, even middle schoolers, have taken up e-cigarettes as well.

"Messaging to teenagers should include warnings about the potential risk from toxic exposure to carcinogenic compounds generated by these products", the authors write. But on top of that, there hasn't been a ton of research done on how damaging they can be to kids with or without nicotine - until now. In 2016, 11 percent of high school students had used an e-cigarette in the past 30 days at the time of the survey - the CDC's definition of current use.

Teenagers who smoke e-cigarettes are poisoning their bodies with the same chemicals present in traditional tobacco cigarettes, according to research released this week.

He explained that proplyene glycol and glycerin, which are used to keep the products smoked in e-cigarettes in liquid form, are safe at room temperature. This trending, however, has been proved to turn e-cigs teens vapers into regular cigarettes smokers. Just as with traditional tobacco cigarettes, many teens do not think they will get addicted to the nicotine and/or feel they will quit before they become addicted and suffer the negative consequences accompanying continued use. The rising number of young Americans smoking e-cigarettes are at great risk for exposing themselves to these cancerous contaminants despite the products being marketed as healthier.

At WC Vapor in Roanoke, William Justice is singing the praises of e-cigarettes.

The report confirmed that "vaping poses only a small fraction of the risks of smoking and switching completely from smoking to vaping conveys substantial health benefits".
