New research has found electronic cigarettes to contain even 10 times more cancer causing ingredients than the tobacco products they are supposed to save us from.
E-cigarettes are meant to replace a dangerous and life destroying habit, but they turned out to be far more dangerous. But why wasn’t there any research prior to their approval and production – a research that was supposed to prove their safety and viability? And who was responsible for that?
Here is an excerpt from the FDA website, and nowhere on its website does the FDA mention an increased cancer risk. The discussion is mostly regarding standardization or quality control.
FDA: E-Cigarettes: Questions and Answers
Q: What are electronic cigarettes?
A: Electronic cigarettes are products designed to deliver nicotine or other substances to a user in the form of a vapor. Typically, they are composed of a rechargeable, battery-operated heating element, a replaceable cartridge that may contain nicotine or other chemicals, and an atomizer that, when heated, converts the contents of the cartridge into a vapor. This vapor can then be inhaled by the user. These products are often made to look like such products as cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. They are also sometimes made to look like everyday items such as pens and USB memory sticks, for people who wish to use the product without others noticing.
Q: What concerns does FDA have regarding electronic cigarettes?
A: FDA has not evaluated any e-cigarettes for safety or effectiveness.
