A new study has revealed that e-cigarettes put young smokers at risk of getting cancer, and fruit flavorings appear to be the most toxic. According to Rubinstein, the toxicity of non-nicotine e-cigarettes is caused by the propylene glycol and glycerin used to preserve the flavors. But on top of that, there hasn't been a ton of research done on how damaging they can be to kids with or without nicotine - until now.

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.

Prof Rubinstein said kids should never use e-cigarettes, devices created to help people quit smoking giving the nicotine hit without exposing them to tobacco.

Levels of toxic organic compounds were up to three times higher on average in the e-cigarette users compared with the controls.

In their turn, the teenagers who consume e-cigs, exclusively, presented by 300% higher amounts of toxins in their urine samples in comparison to the teenagers who don't smoke or vape.

The scientists looked at the effects vaping has on teenagers, and their findings are the first to find cancer-causing chemicals in the bodies of youngsters who vape. The American Lung Association explained why: "There is no government oversight of these products".

Weather Authority: Nor'easter to bring heavy snow
Lawrence County will see less snow, from 3 to 6 inches, most of which will fall Wednesday evening and overnight into Thursday . The heaviest additional accumulations of a foot of snow or more are most likely in parts of central and northern Maine .

The team discovered the existence of unsafe components in e-cigarette vapor has been entrenched. "In fact, it contains some of the same toxic chemicals contained in the smoke of traditional cigarettes", said Rubinstein.

Among the compounds researchers have found acrolein, Acrylonitrile, CROTONALDEHYDE, propylene oxide and acrylamide, which belong to the class of chemicals called volatile organic compounds (VOCS). But public health groups, the surgeon general's office, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are anxious about proof that vaping can get teens dependent on nicotine and will marshal them to smoking cigarettes.

Apparently, the "flavor" of the e-cigarette cartridge matters. "As long as e-cigarettes remain attractive to youth, concern persists that these products contribute to greater combustible cigarette smoking among adolescents".

Dr Rubinstein said: 'I do not think teens are aware of the risks.

E-cigarettes are so popular that they're now the most commonly used form of smoking among teens in the United States.

'Moreover, numerous teens in my practice tell me that they feel e-cigarettes are safe and only produce "water vapor"'.
