Vaping? You could be inhaling lead and arsenic, a new study says

E-Cigarette Vapours Could Be Loaded With Toxic Metals

"Many smokers choose to quit smoking without the assistance of a clinician and some opt to use e-cigarettes to accomplish this goal", the organization mentioned.

Researchers sampled 56 vape devices from real life vape smokers - not newer models that aren't subject to the same toxins - that proved heating up substances in plastic is actually very bad for you.

Past research has found that oils used to vape contain toxins, and a new study shows that the latest e-cigarette devices might leak unsafe amounts of metal, including lead, which could have serious health risks.

"These studies have also found a large variance in exposure levels among the users tested, which indicates harm can be significantly reduced with the use of quality products", Chowdhery said.

The study, published Wednesday in the scientific journal Environmental Health Perspectives by researchers from Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg School of Public Health, sampled 56 vape devices.

The researchers called on the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) to regulate the devices.

In typical e-cigarettes, an electric current produced by a battery passes through a metal coil, which then heats nicotine-based liquids to create an aerosol, Forbes said. Although she doesn't believe vaping is safe, Rule asserts there needs to be better devices for those who insist on the habit. Today the word on the e-streets is that E-Cigarette Vapor Found To Have Potentially Toxic Levels Of Lead & More.

However, the source of the lead and how metals get into the surrounding e-liquid remains a mystery. "The FDA should assess whether e-cigarettes help to reduce tobacco-related morbidity and mortality, and the impact of marketing of e-cigarettes on consumer perceptions and behavior", the ACS added in its statement.

The data showed that almost 50 percent of aerosol samples contained lead in quantities above the Ambient Air Quality Standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency.

"These were median levels only", Rule says.

"We know there are many young vapers that have never smoked", Dr. Rule said. How arsenic got into these e-liquids is yet another mystery.

In an earlier study, the researchers also found that e-cigarette users had a high level of nickel and chromium in their urine and saliva, meaning they were exposed to those chemicals from the aerosol.

Support for the research was provided by the Maryland State Cigarette Restitution Fund (PHPA-G2034), the Alfonso Martín Escudero Foundation, the American Heart Association Tobacco Regulation and Addiction Center (1P50HL120163), and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (5P30ES009089).
