E-Cigarettes Can Cause A Horrible Disease in Your Lungs


Harvard School of Public Health reminded E-cigarette users about its horrendous effect in your lungs.

E-cigarettes and vaping have been a trend nowadays, especially to young professionals.

A study was conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health and the results is shocking.

Diacetyl, a flavouring chemical used in E-cigs are linked to cases of severe respiratory disease called as “popcorn lung”.

This condition was first discovered with workers in microwave popcorn processing facilities who inhaled artificial butter flavouring.

This respiratory disease causes scars in tiny air sacs of the lungs.

The study is conducted to 51 different flavoured e-cigarettes. The researchers discovered that 1 of 3 top toxins can be found in 47 e-cigarettes. These are diacetyl, acetone and pentanedione.

“The amount of diacetyl in 39 of the e-cigs exceeded the amount that was able to be detected by the laboratory. Diacetyl and other related flavoring chemicals are used in many other flavors beyond butter-flavored popcorn, including fruit flavors, alcohol flavors, and candy flavored e-cigarettes,” head researcher Joseph Allan said.

It is also scary that most of the popular flavours to young people like cotton candy and cupcake are the most toxicated flavours.

David Christiani, Elkan Blout Professor of Environmental Genetics and co-author of the study said, “Since most of the health concerns about e-cigarettes have focused on nicotine, there is still much we do not know about e-cigarettes. In addition to containing varying levels of the addictive substance nicotine, they also contain other cancer-causing chemicals, such as formaldehyde, and as our study
shows, flavoring chemicals that can cause lung damage.”
E-cigarette manufacturers disclaimed about the study.

What can you say about this? Will you stop vaping your electronic cigarettes?
