Potentially toxic chemicals were found in e-cigarette vaper

Electronic Cigarette Vapor Contains Lead Chromium And Other Harmful Metals

Toxic Metals Found in E-Cigarette Vapors

The study appears online in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.

The Food and Drug Administration has the authority to regulate e-cigarettes and e-liquids. The refill e-liquid also detected significant levels of arsenic.

They found minimal amounts in the liquid but much larger amounts were in the heating coils and then transferred to the vapour. And finally they tested the remaining liquid left behind in the device.

They found that noteworthy numbers had risky levels of the poisons leaking into their vapor. They found that the liquid in the e-cigarette, the liquid in the pen's chamber and the overall vapor itself releases carcinogens including chromium, lead, nickel and arsenic.

The measure of lead found in the aerosols produced by the devices was, in some cases, more than 25 times greater than in the refill dispensers. During the study, a highly toxic metal is also found in the e-liquid tank, e-refill and in the aerosol samples as well.

Chief of Staff Kelly to decide on Kushner's security clearance
Kushner is now working at the White House with a temporary security clearance and felt personally targeted by Kelly's decision. Trump told reporters on Friday that Kelly would make the final decision as to any exception for Kushner.

"FDA, the e-cigarette companies and vapers themselves to know that these heating coils, as now made, seem to be leaking toxic metals, which then get into the aerosols that vapers inhale".

Vaping might help you quit smoking, but it isn't as safe as you think.

This latest study is in fact the continuation of preliminary research published by the authors past year that studied the same group of users. They are probably the sources of metal contamination, although the source of the lead remains a mystery. For other metals, numerous exposure levels found were higher than a safety threshold established by U.S. agencies like the EPA.

But another analysis of previous studies on heavy metals in e-cigarettes published in 2015 concluded that, with normal use, levels of toxic metals are generally well below unsafe levels. In an earlier study of the 56 vapers, levels of nickel and chromium in urine and saliva related to those measured in the aerosol, confirming that e-cigarette users are exposed to these metals. Evidence that vaping isn't entirely safe continues to accumulate, however. Critics have shot back that vaping is enticing a new generation of teens to not only become addicted to nicotine, but possibly even to regular smoking too. "We've established with this study that there are exposures to these metals, which is the first step, but we need also to determine the actual health effects". Prior studies have only looked at newly purchased e-cigs, and the authors of this study wanted to test devices that people actually use for a more representative sample, since they often contain modifications and wear-and-tear.
