A big warning delivered after new research on mice and human bladder and lung cells by the New York University Experts show that vaping can cause DNA mutations which can lead to contracting cancer.
They did so by exposing the cells to an e-cigarette smoke and studying its effect on them. However, while we all know that smoking is harmful to our health, the cell mutation revoked more attention.
As a result, more and more experts indulged into thorough experiments to ascertain the initial researchers’ conclusions.
Previously, vaping was considered much healthier than normal smoking, but recent research from the Moon-Shong Tang contradicts the suggestion.
Their results suggested that e-cigarette smokers risked developing lung and bladder cancers at a significantly higher percentage than regular smokers as the vapor is carcinogenic. Therefore, this means that the e-cigarettes are quite dangerous to human health.
A while ago, Philip Morris, a leading tobacco company invented a new e-cigarette device named IQOS and had tried to market it. However, the food and drug administration rejected their proposal basing their reasons on the researchers’ findings.
The company wanted to sell the devices, suggesting that it was much healthier than typical cigars.
While the research revealed that vaping had fewer cancer-causing chemicals than regular smoking, it found out that vapers risked higher chances of contracting lung, bladder and heart diseases. Besides, all the diseases are fatal.
Similarly, in October 2017, researchers from the University of North Carolina led by Dr. Mehmet Kesimer found out that vaping was as harmful as any other cigarette smoking. Dr. Kesimer confirmed that those were findings from their research.
Not long ago, most teens as per the New York University study authors had become the most prominent vapers as they associated the e-cigarettes with lesser health risk. However, recent research which shows a decrease in the percentage usage of the e-cigarettes suggests that more teenagers are likely to turn to tobacco smoking.
As well we should not forget that these things have a mind of their own and have previously exploded in peoples faces.
