Teens using e-cigarettes show evidence of same toxic chemicals as smokers

E-Cigarette Use Exposes Teens to Toxic Chemicals

Both forms of cigarette use caused the presence of much higher levels of unsafe chemicals in the users' bodies, including acrylonitrile, acrolein, propylene oxide, acrylamide and crotonaldehyde, the team reported.

"So while it sounds terrible, they don't compare it to cigarettes and they're not telling you what the levels in these devices are", owner of Norcal Vape Keri Hess said.

The study by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco published their findings in the Pediatrics Medical Journal, identifying five chemicals that can cause cancer within the smoking devices.

The group that used e-cigarettes was found to have levels of toxic organic compounds that were three times higher than the control group.

Public Health England br / PHE is an executive agency of United Kingdom that aims at protecting and improving the nation's health and to address inequalities.br / The review published by PHE on e-cigarette has been severely criticized because it endorse a 95% benefits compared to smoking tobacco. They work by heating a pure liquid called e-juice - composed of flavorings, propylene glycol, glycerin and often nicotine - until it vaporizes.

"Among our e-cigarette-only participants, the use of fruit-flavored products produced significantly higher levels of the metabolites of acrylonitrile", they wrote.

The Modified-Risk Tobacco Products (MRTP) are created to help smokers (willing or not to quit smoking) obtain a safer alternative to combusted tobacco cigarettes.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information said acrylonitrile is a highly poisonous compound used widely in the manufacture of plastics, adhesives, and synthetic rubber.

Later, Nunberg asked Jake Tapper for advice in how to proceed with the summons. "I think it would be amusing if they arrested me". Nunberg told MSNBC's Katy Tur that he thinks the Federal Bureau of Investigation may have something on Trump - or maybe not.

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.

Acrolein "is toxic to humans following inhalation, oral or dermal exposure", the Environmental Protection Agency says.

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.

Teens smoking e-cigarettes, or vaping, were found to have ingested far more cancer-causing chemicals than people who reported smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes.

That risk level was the same for those using both e-cigs and tobacco.

Under-18s are nearly three times more likely to use e-cigarettes than adults, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 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.

Many studies support the theory that kids who vape are more likely to go on to use other tobacco products, but there hasn't been much hard evidence about how directly unsafe e-cigarettes are.
