New Research from APS: E-Cigarette Flavorings, Additives Increase Inflammation and Impair Lung Function, Study Finds

October 11, 2018
   

Short-term e-cigarette use causes as much or more damage as conventional cigarettes

Flavoring and additive ingredients in e-cigarettes may increase inflammation and impair lung function, according to new research. The study, published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology—Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology, also found that short-term exposure to e-cigarettes was enough to cause lung inflammation similar or worse than that seen in traditional cigarette use. The research was chosen as an APSselect article for October.
