Vaping potentially as harmful as tobacco cigarettes, study concludes

Results of a new study have suggested that electronic cigarettes could be as harmful to health as tobacco cigarettes.

Chemists at the University of Connecticut used a novel 3D-printed device to test the effects of e-cigarettes and the nicotine-based liquid within them. The researchers found that the nicotine liquid is potentially as harmful as unfiltered tobacco cigarettes where DNA damage is concerned.

Furthermore, they found that the vapour from non-nicotine e-cigarettes caused as much DNA damage as filtered cigarettes, possibly due to the many chemical additives present in e-cigarette vapours.

Cellular mutations caused by DNA damage can lead to cancer.
