E-Cigarettes May Produce Toxins After All
Two new studies suggest some e-cigarette devices may generate the same deadly toxins as regular cigarettes.By Jay Strubberg | May 4, 2014
It's supposed to be why E-cigarettes are so safe – no light, no smoke, and, therefore, no second-hand smoke. But new research is calling that into question.
The studies, soon to be published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research, suggest more powerful e-cigarettes – known as "tank systems" – can burn so hot they may release the same deadly toxins as regular cigarettes. (Via CNN)
These tank systems look a lot like traditional smokes – often about the size of your pinky. But when they get lit up, they might also get dangerous.
