Vaping Flavors Could Be Toxic to White Blood Cells
According to a team of scientists from the University of Rochester, vaping flavors such as vanilla and cinnamon are toxic to leukocytes, or white blood cells, increasing the risk of developing life-threatening diseases.
For the study, the researchers exposed immune cells to chemicals used in e-cigarette flavoring. They discovered that this type of cells produced substances responsible for inflammation and tissue damage. In addition, many of the flavoring chemicals caused a significant level of the death of these cells.
Senior author Dr. Irfan Rahman, of the environmental health sciences center, says: “While e-cigarettes are thought to have relatively less or no harm to the consumer's health compared to tobacco smoke, vaping flavors are not safe for inhalation. Currently, these are not regulated, and alluring flavor names, such as candy, cake, cinnamon roll and mystery mix, attract young vapers.”
