Vaping Delivers Cancerous Chemicals, New Study of Teens Shows
As the popularity of e-cigarettes continues to grow, a new warning comes from researchers: Teenagers who try vaping are ingesting numerous same chemicals that make traditional cigarettes so deadly.
Seventeen percent of 12th-graders reported using some sort of vaping device, either with nicotine, a flavored liquid or marijuana, in 2017, compared to 13 percent in 2016, according to the University of California-San Francisco's Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education. E-cigarettes are more an more used by teenagers because of the massive marketing campaigns that promote them as safe alternatives to classic smoking. 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.
Nearly 100 teens from the San Francisco Bay area were examined in the University of California-San Francisco study: 67 teens used e-cigarettes only, 16 used both e-cigarettes and conventional cigarettes and 20 didn't smoke or vape at all.
In urine samples from the three groups, researchers predictably found high levels of carcinogenic chemicals in the cigarette and e-cigarette users, but also found the same chemicals - albeit at lower levels - in e-cigarette-only users.
"It is indicated in our results that among youth cigarette experimenters, those who have also used e-cigarettes are more likely to progress to current established smoking than those who tried cigarettes alone", Chaffee and colleagues wrote.
"The wide majority of people that come into the shop are either trying to quit smoking or find something that's at least a little less harmful", Justice said.
Acrolein "is toxic to humans following inhalation, oral or dermal exposure", the Environmental Protection Agency says. This trending, however, has been proved to turn e-cigs teens vapers into regular cigarettes smokers.
The group that used both e-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes had levels that were six times higher.
