Teens using e-cigarettes show evidence of same toxic chemicals as smokers

E-cigarettes contain cancer-causing chemicals similar to those found in traditional cigarettes, according to new research exploring the unknown dangers of electronic nicotine delivery systems, especially as their use becomes more widespread among teenagers.

When asked whether they used liquid with nicotine, 31 percent of participants said "always", 39 percent said "sometimes", 15 percent said "unsure" and 15 percent said "never". Research published this week in the journal Pediatrics finds that teens who only smoke tobacco-based cigarettes such as Marlboro and Camel brands have the highest levels of cancer-causing chemicals present in their bodies.

"Have the conversation around what is this, sit down and really look at what it does have in it", Hans said.

"Although smoking even one cigarette is concerning, becoming an established smoker in adolescence is of substantial clinical and public health concern and is strongly associated with continuing to smoke regularly", researchers wrote.

"I was a pack-a-day smoker for 20 years", said Justice, owner of WC Vapor.

Even though e-cigarettes producers advertise their products as safe and even suggest smokers to quit smoking regular cigarettes and to start using e-cigs, recent studies on e-cigarettes revealed that they can be as nocive as regular cigarettes.

None of the chemicals - which included benzene, ethylene, oxide, acrylonitrile, acrolein and acrylamide - were found in non-smokers.

"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.

The group that used e-cigarettes was found to have levels of toxic organic compounds that were three times higher than the control group.

'Teenagers should be inhaling air, not products with toxins in them'. Despite massive gains in cutting cigarette use among young adults over the past few decades, e-cigarette use was the most common tobacco product among USA middle- and high-schoolers between 2014 and 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

It was the first known study to report on the presence of potentially cancer-causing compounds in the bodies of adolescents who use e-cigarettes. And those who used only e-cigarettes had much higher levels than those who used neither product. We can all probably agree we want our kids exposed to the least amount of cancer-causing chemicals as possible.

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.

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