Vape flavors can make nasty new chemicals in your e-liquid

Oct 18, 2018



Stick to the unflavoured liquid, right ?

Excerpts:

We hear a lot about how the ingredients in vape juice might be bad for us: the nicotine is addictive, for example, and the flavorings could be bad for lungs. But new research says that there are chemicals in e-liquids that we didn’t even know to worry about, because they form in the e-liquid bottle or pod after all the ingredients are mixed together.

Scientists have discovered that cinnamon, vanilla, and cherry flavors react with propylene glycol, a main ingredient in many vape juices, to create entirely new chemicals, according to a study published today in the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research. Those same chemicals carry over into the vapor that people inhale, the new study says. Early investigations led by Sven-Eric Jordt, a professor of anesthesiology, pharmacology, and cancer biology at Duke University, suggest that these modified flavorings might be able to irritate lungs over the long term. And people don’t even know they’re inhaling them.

And now, it turns out that there’s more than just the flavor ingredients themselves to worry about: there are also the chemicals the flavorings can produce as they continue reacting in vape juice. That’s why this study is important, says Robert Strongin, an organic chemist at Portland State University who was not involved in the research. It looks at the risks unique to the soup of chemicals in e-cigarettes. “There are things that are being vaped and inhaled that people don’t really know about.”
