Toxic Chemicals Pose health Risks

According to researchers at the Desert Research Institute in Nevada, who did the study, high levels of the Formaldehyde, among other such toxic chemicals, were found in candy flavoured nicotine. The report, published in November’s journal Environmental Science & Technology found that the levels found in vape liquids are much higher than established “safe” limits of the chemicals.

The safety thresholds were set by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. The levels of toxic chemicals recorded in the study varied widely across brands and flavors but for the most part, one puff of flavored vapor contained levels of aldehydes exceeding the “safe thresholds” or chemical safety limits by factors of 1.5 to 270.

The study measured toxic aldehyde chemicals, such as formaldehyde, produced by three popular e-cigarette brands. Both flavored and unflavored liquids were evaluated. The researchers also used three of the most common e-cigarette types; bottom and top coil clearomizers and caromizers in their tests.

Five different flavored liquids as well as two unflavored liquids were tested, to see whether flavoring additives affected the production of 12 different toxic aldehydes.

The results showed that the heat processing of the liquid into a vapor causes the formation of 12 aldehydes and that those levels exceeded occupational safety standards.

These findings back up those from an earlier study which found that flavored liquid nicotine vapors are toxic to human lungs, and that the strawberry flavoring in particular, could cause widespread inflammation and lung cell damage.

The flavoring for most e-cigarettes makes up 1 to 4 percent of the e-liquid, which is equivalent to 10 to 40 mg/mL. In one day, a typical user who regularly vapes will be exposed to about 5 mL of the liquid.

San Francisco, CA: In case you didn’t know, Juul is a giant e-cigarette or vape company that is hugely popular with teens with flavors such as fruit medley and mango. It looks like a USB drive and recharges when plugged into a computer. Oh yes, it also has high nicotine content. In fact a study published in Tobacco Control revealed that the younger the teen, the more likely they will use Juul—and on a regular basis. And that has caused great concern for parents—so much so that a class action has hit Juul for illegally marketing to teens READ MORE

I’ve been Vaping for 11 years. I’m an ex smoker. I smoked 1 pack a day of clove cigarettes. My breathing, sense of smell and health is great! No coughing etc. I take very good care of my equipment including batteries and all of my mods. I vape only premium liquid. I vape 3mg Vape juice. I don’t buy anything on the street, I don’t use thc cartridges or any cartridges. I don’t buy anything vape related from a convenience store or gas station, I buy only from reputable shops and companies where all vape juice sold is FDA approved and regulated. People, do your research and due diligence!

I’ve been vaping for about 6 years, after many years of smoking. My breathing almost immediately got better. My last chest x-ray, about 2 years ago was so clear the doc sent it back thinking he had the wrong x-ray. So while they may not be risk free, they are a much “lesser evil” and I hope the industry doesn’t get forced out of business due to large class action suits.

I've been vaping for a few years, maybe 3. Anyway, a pulmonologist told me to "keep that e cigarette hanging off your neck all the time, if you want a cigarette, smoke one, you will smoke less". Now a cardiac doc tells me the nicotine in them is bad for the heart valves. Oh, and just what is written in the article, the toxic chemicals. Guess it's just time to kick the butts and the vapes. Big tobacco wins either way. That is where the nicotine in the e cigarettes comes from. Google it. Easy to find.

I have used e cigarettes for the last 5 years. Thinking this was healthier then smoking. I've purchased a lot of over the counter vapor cigs and vapors from gas stations and tobacco stores. My lungs and breathing haven't gotten any better but in fact I feel worse. My lungs feel inflamed, heavy and I cough now throughout the entire day.
