Teens exposed to five toxic chemicals from E-cigarettes Video

Vaping delivers potentially cancerous chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes to teens, even if a e-cigarette has no nicotine, said a new study released on Monday by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco.

Of the 1,295 adolescents included in the analysis, those who have ever used e-cigarettes were likely to progress to established smoking when compared with those who had never used e-cigarettes (19.3% vs. 9.7%).

Teens who used only e-cigarettes, especially particularly sweet or flavored juices, had much higher levels of chemicals than those who don't use either tobacco product.

E-cigarettes use a device that delivers fluid laced with nicotine and flavors, creating a smoke-like haze.

"E-cigarettes are widely promoted as a smoking cessation aid, but for most people, they actually make it harder to quit smoking, so most people end up as so-called "dual users" who keep smoking while using e-cigarettes", said Stanton Glantz, lead author of the latter study, in a statement.

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

Teenagers who use electronic cigarettes are exposed to cancer-causing chemicals found in tobacco even when the e-cigarettes don't contain nicotine, according to a new study.

The group that used both e-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes had levels that were six times higher.

E-#Cigarettes have become extremely popular over the years as they are known for being less risky in comparison to conventional cigarettes.

E-cigarettes contain additives and solvents, which can form carcinogenic compounds when heated, according to the study.

Other teams have found other potentially cancer-causing chemicals in e-cigarette vapor, including diacetyl, the chemical blamed for causing "Popcorn lung" in workers at microwave popcorn packaging plants.

In conclusion, the e-cigarettes present the same carcinogenic chemicals as the regular cigarettes, therefore they are not at all a safer or healthier alternative to classic smoking.

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. The teens were divided into three groups: e-cigarette-only users, cigarette and e-cigarette users, and non-users.

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 risky e-cigarettes are.

The individuals who just vape had more elevated amounts of specific chemicals in their body than customary smokers and nonsmokers, fixing to the "flavoring" utilized as a part of numerous vape items.
