These researchers suspect that the flavoring liquids used may cause heart diseases or increase the chances of a sudden heart attack, and especially thementhol flavor which is considered particularly harmful.
This effect of “vape juice”is related to cells that line and compose the interior of blood vessels, known as endothelial cells, and here we’re talking about risks of multiple types of cancer (endocrinal cancerfor instance).
In this study, they investigated the effect of six different flavors that are composed differently:natural tobacco,sweet tobacco (caramel and vanilla), menthol,cinnamon and sweet butterscotch, with nicotine levels of zero, and 18 milligrams per milliliter in order to understand perfectly its pure effect (without any nicotine’s introduction) on endothelial cells, and the results were quite surprising.
First of all, they observed the fact the degree of danger and toxicity differ from each vaping juice to another; while several were “moderately toxic” to the endothelial cells, cinnamon and menthol liquids were “significantly harmful” tothe vitality of the cells, this minus the long term known effects of nicotine’s addiction on the cells, and without
considering the first study we talked about.
In brief, and while e-cigarettes are often positioned as ‘safer’ than cigarettes, for e-cigarettes won the vapingvs smoking debate for about a decade now, some researches continue their hard work motivated by the fact that their findings will highlight that this may not be the case, and this more than enough of a reason to avoid vaping and vaping dangers that are still unknown.
