Some effects are similar to the damage seen in smokers and people with chronic lung disease
VAPING is more harmful than previously thought, a study suggests.
Some of the effects are similar to those seen in smokers and people with chronic lung disease.
Researchers found e-cigs boosts the production of inflammatory chemicals in the body.
And the vapour kills protective cells in the lung that keep the air spaces clear of harmful bugs.
These cells should engulf and remove dust particles, bacteria, and allergens.
The scientists extracted cells from lung samples provided by eight healthy non-smokers.
Some were exposed to e-cig fluid, some to condensed vapour and some to nothing for 24 hours.
The vapour was significantly more harmful than the fluid and effects worsened as the dose rose
