Although e-cigarettes probably pose less of a cancer risk than regular cigarettes, whether they are as safe as manufacturers claim is unclear.
However, the study stated that the effects are similar to those seen in regular smokers and patients with chronic lung disease. "They are safer in terms of cancer risk, but if you vape for 20 or 30 years and this can cause COPD, then that's something we need to know about", he stated.
They created a mechanism to mimic the effects of vaping, as well as to turn the smoke back into a liquid afterwards.
The study shows that e-cigarette vapor can do harm although it is not certain it will do harm.
I do not believe that electronic cigarettes are more harmful than normal, but we should have a cautious skepticism as to whether it is as safe as we think. "The current study does not address that question, but given the much lower levels and range of toxins in electronic cigarette vapor relative to cigarette smoke, the answer is likely to be substantially less", Professor John Britton, Director of the UK Centre for Tobacco & Alcohol Studies at the University of Nottingham, who was not involved in the study, told the Science Media Centre. Treatment with an antioxidant, however, restored that ability and helped reduce other damage caused by e-cigarette fluid, Thickett's team found.
