E-cigarette use predicts current established smoking in teens

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 study by the University of California San Francisco 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. Those who only vape had higher levels of certain chemicals in their body than traditional smokers and nonsmokers, tied to the "flavoring" used in many vape products. According to Rubinstein, the toxicity of non-nicotine e-cigarettes is caused by the propylene glycol and glycerin used to preserve the flavors.

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.

The study, published the latest edition of the medical journal Pediatrics, found that levels of toxic organic compounds in tested teens were up to three times higher on average in the e-cigarette users compared with a non-smoking, non-vaping control group, UCSF 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.

"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.

E-cigarettes contain additives and solvents, which can form carcinogenic compounds when heated, according to the study. Additionally, the EPA listed acrolein as "toxic to humans following inhalation, oral or dermal exposure".

"E-cigarettes are marketed to adults who are trying to reduce or quit smoking as a safer alternative to cigarettes", said Rubinstein.

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

Since vapors have been invented, more young adults are using the trendy product every day.

This chemical irritates the lungs when it's breathed in, and there's a chance that it could also be linked to breast cancer and brain cancer. Acrolein is found in chemical weapons. And, the groups that used both e-cigarettes and smoked tobacco cigarettes also had three times higher level of toxic chemicals than in the e-cigarette-only group.

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. In 2016, the CDC reported that 11 percent of USA high schoolers had vaped in the past 30 days.

Last week, a study of almost 70,000 people found that daily e-cigarette use can double the risk for heart attack.

'E-cigarettes have the potential to addict the next generation, ' he said.
