Vaping Delivers Cancerous Chemicals, New Study of Teens Shows

E-Cigarette Use Exposes Teens to Toxic Chemicals

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.

"Acrylonitrile is a highly poisonous compound used widely in the manufacture of plastics, adhesives and synthetic rubber", the National Center for Biotechnology Information says on its website.

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.

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.

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 Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association responded to the study citing a government report from January that found there's no available evidence e-cigarette use is associated with cancer.
