Vaping may cause lung disease, new study claims

Why vaping is bad for your health

He also advised that further research is required to fully understand the long-term health impact of vaping.

The study has been disclosed in the British Medical Journal uncovered e-cigarette vapor destroys protective cells which keep the lungs clear of harmful particles. "We have the risk that a flavour might appeal to a child but for adults they have an appeal too, so that is a massive public health gain", Hazel added, referring to the fact that vaping could reduce the number of people smoking regular cigarettes.

A third of the cells were exposed to plain e-cigarette fluid, a third to different strengths of the artificially vaped condensate with and without nicotine, and a third to nothing for 24 hours. Another group of cells was exposed to nothing as a control group. The researchers did admit that more study is needed to full determine health effects of vaping on humans. According to the researchers results showed condensate was more harmful to cell than e-cig fluid with effects worsening as doses increased.

Exposure to the condensate increased cell death and boosted production of oxygen free radicals 50-fold and significantly increased the production of inflammatory chemicals-more so with condensate containing nicotine.

The 2016 Youth Tobacco Policy Survey in the United Kingdom showed that 17% of 11-16 year-olds had tried e-cigarettes; 1% were using at least once a week, and 77% were "regular smokers" but had tried e-cigarettes.

Long-term inhalation of e-cigarette vapour is potentially harmful, researchers found. We hope that by disseminating this data as widely as possible the public can at least make an informed choice; the public must be aware these devices are not harmless.

An examination of the shell casings shows the shooter appeared to have used a 9 mm semi-automatic weapon. Earlier this year, someone fired shots at Chief Keef, who was beefing with Tekashi at the time.

"In terms of cancer causing molecules in cigarette smoke, as opposed to cigarette vapour, there are certainly reduced numbers of carcinogens", he said.

"I don't believe e-cigarettes are more harmful than ordinary cigarettes, but we should have a cautious skepticism that they are as safe as we are being led to believe".

University Professor David Thickett stated that electronic cigarettes are safer terms of cancer risk but if Smoking them for 20 or 30 years, this can lead to chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD).

People who used both traditional cigarettes and e-cigarettes were much more prone to respiratory symptoms like chronic coughing and wheezing that could indicate breathing disorders like asthma and COPD, the study also found. We have already helped lots of people save thousands of pounds, by switching their policy which they took out when they were smokers, to a new one which takes into account the fact that they now only vape'.

Earlier studies looked just at the effect on cells of the liquid that goes into an e-cigarette rather than at the vapourised chemicals.
