To assess the connection between teenage use of e-cigarettes and later established smoking in those who have previously tried cigarettes, the researchers analyzed data concerning adolescents aged between 12 and 17 years who had reported smoking one or more puffs of a cigarette but not more than 100 cigarettes in the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health survey.
It found that teenagers who smoke tobacco-based cigarettes have the highest levels of cancer- causing chemicals in their bodies.
Nearly 100 teens from the San Francisco Bay area were examined in the University of California-San Francisco study: 67 teens used e-cigarettes only, 16 used both e-cigarettes and conventional cigarettes and 20 didn't smoke or vape at all.
"Among our e-cigarette-only participants, the use of fruit-flavored products produced significantly higher levels of the metabolites of acrylonitrile", they wrote.
Some of the substances tested for were detected in the bodies of adolescents who used flavored, nicotine-free e-cigarette liquid.
The researchers also told,"The presence of harmful ingredients in e-cigarette vapor has been established; we can now say that these chemicals are found in the body of human adolescents who use these products". "Messaging to teenagers should include warnings about the potential risk from toxic exposure to carcinogenic compounds generated by these products". The teens were divided into three groups: e-cigarette-only users, cigarette and e-cigarette users, and non-users.
But recent research from the University of California, San Francisco now reveals that we may have more to worry about when it comes to teenage use of e-cigarettes - beyond addiction and the possibility of transitioning to traditional cigarettes. According to Rubinstein, the toxicity of non-nicotine e-cigarettes is caused by the propylene glycol and glycerin used to preserve the flavors.
The scientists looked at the effects vaping has on teenagers, and their findings are the first to find cancer-causing chemicals in the bodies of youngsters who vape.
The study also found evidence of propylene oxide, acrylamide and crotonaldehyde.
This chemical irritates the lungs when it's breathed in, and there's a chance that it could also be linked to breast cancer and brain cancer. Acrolein is found in chemical weapons.
"E-cigarettes are marketed to adults who are trying to reduce or quit smoking as a safer alternative to cigarettes". But on top of that, there hasn't been a ton of research done on how damaging they can be to kids with or without nicotine - until now.
Many studies support the theory that kids who vape are more likely to go on to use other tobaccoproducts, but there hasn't been much hard evidence about how directly unsafe e-cigarettes are.
