What Is the Effect of E-Cigarette Aerosol (Vapor) on the Body?
Electronic Cigarette contain propylene glycol, glycerol, nicotine, flavorings, water, and additional chemicals. Tests of the liquid in some e-cigarettes have also found toxic ingredients, such as formaldehyde (a chemical that may cause cancer). Health experts do not yet know the effects of these chemicals on people who use e-cigarettes or who are exposed to secondhand e-cigarette aerosol. Research is under way to measure exposure to nicotine and other chemicals from the aerosol to better understand the risks.

Research studies have found that nicotine may make animals’ brains more receptive to the effects of other drugs. Some experts think this could also be true for people. If so, a young person who uses an e-cigarette or a tobacco cigarette may find other drugs, like cocaine, more rewarding. This “priming effect” on the brain increases the likelihood of further drug use and possible addiction. To further study this possibility, researchers will track young people who use e-cigarettes to see if they are more likely to become addicted to other drugs.

Some studies show that e-cigarettes help people quit tobacco cigarettes, and others suggest that they interfere with quitting. As more research is conducted, the effectiveness of e-cigarettes as a quitting aid will become better understood. Meanwhile, smokers who want to quit have other good options with proven effectiveness. u2022eney7485yyWEEEEDD
