Vaping Causes Cancer….!

Vaping causes DNA mutations which lead to cancer, a new study warns.Researchers subjected cultured human bladder and lung cells to e-cigarette vapor which is designed to avoid the carcinogenic byproducts of tobacco.They found the cells mutated and became cancerous at a much higher rate than expected, and mice exposed to the smoke also suffered significant DNA damage.The New York University team warns their findings, published today, bring into question the popular belief that vaping nicotine is a safe alternative to smoking it in cigarettes. E-cigarette smoke (ECS) delivers nicotine through aerosols without burning tobacco.While tobacco smoke contains nitrosamines and many carcinogenic chemicals from burning, ECS contains nicotine and some relatively harmless organic solvents. It is already sold in more than 30 countries and Philip Morris aims to make it the first ‘reduced risk’ tobacco product ever sanctioned by the US.The adult smoking rate has fallen to an all-time low of 15 percent, though smoking remains the nation’s leading preventable cause of illness and death.
