It is proved: electronic cigarettes can increase risk of lung cancer


Disputes on safety of electronic cigarettes and degree of their harm in comparison with usual cigarettes continue. Opponents of electronic devices refer to the last research which speaks about communication of vapes and lung cancer.

As is noted by Ridus, the majority of chemical compounds of the electronic cigarettes provoking cancer, remain in lungs. Observation of 12 smokers has been made. It has appeared, average concentration of aldehydes in the exhaled air after smoking of an electronic cigarette is 10,5 times higher, than before smoking. And concentration of formaldehyde at the same time is one hundred times lower, than in evaporations. Means, the lion's share of toxic evaporations settles in an organism.

By the way, electronic cigarettes are also dangerous to a liver. Researches have shown: they lead to accumulation of fat in a liver. It is confirmed by experiments with mice. In electronic cigarettes there is a nicotine which was already connected with not alcoholic fatty alcoholic disease of a liver. Within 12 weeks scientists investigated the mice deprived of a gene of an apolipoprotein E. Such modification of a genome made mice predisposed to development of a heart trouble and accumulation of fat in a liver. All animals were fed with the food rich with fats and cholesterol.

at the same time have subjected one group of mice to influence of electronic cigarettes (nicotine level in their blood can be compared to smokers and users of electronic cigarettes). The second group was control. Scientists have collected samples of a liver of mice and have studied genes. Interested them as electronic cigarettes influenced body at the genetic level.

Have been revealed changes in 433 genes connected with development of a fatty disease of a liver. Also the genes connected with circadian rhythms changed. And, as we know, violations in these rhythms lead to the accelerated development of diseases of a liver, including fatty. It turns out, electronic cigarettes can't be considered a safe alternative to usual cigarettes.
