Vaping Is NOT Good For You. Studies Found E-Cigs Lead To Lung Disease
The big new trend ‘vaping’ is now under major scrutiny as the Harvard School of Public Health released the following statement:
Diacetyl, a flavoring chemical linked to cases of severe respiratory disease, was found in more than 75 percent of flavored electronic cigarettes and refill liquids tested by researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Two other related, potentially harmful compounds were also found in many of the tested flavors, which included varieties with potential appeal to young people such as cotton candy, “Fruit Squirts,” and cupcake.
At least one of the three chemicals was detected in 47 of the 51 flavors tested. Diacetyl was detected above the laboratory limit of detection in 39 of the flavors tested. Acetoin and 2,3-pentanedione were detected in 46 and 23 and of the flavors, respectively.
Inhaling Diacetyl is one of the primary causes of bronchiolitis obliterans, a debilitating lung disease.
