New research has found electronic cigarettes to contain even 10 times more cancer causing ingredients than the tobacco products they are supposed to save us from.

E-cigarettes are meant to replace a dangerous and life destroying habit, but they turned out to be far more dangerous. But why wasn’t there any research prior to their approval and production – a research that was supposed to prove their safety and viability? And who was responsible for that?

Here is an excerpt from the FDA website, and nowhere on its website does the FDA mention an increased cancer risk. The discussion is mostly regarding standardization or quality control.

FDA: E-Cigarettes: Questions and Answers

Q: What are electronic cigarettes?

A: Electronic cigarettes are products designed to deliver nicotine or other substances to a user in the form of a vapor. Typically, they are composed of a rechargeable, battery-operated heating element, a replaceable cartridge that may contain nicotine or other chemicals, and an atomizer that, when heated, converts the contents of the cartridge into a vapor. This vapor can then be inhaled by the user. These products are often made to look like such products as cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. They are also sometimes made to look like everyday items such as pens and USB memory sticks, for people who wish to use the product without others noticing.

Q: What concerns does FDA have regarding electronic cigarettes?

A: FDA has not evaluated any e-cigarettes for safety or effectiveness.

And there you have it.

Now we learn about this shocking information from sources outside the US. The FDA has a budget of over $4,500,000,000 (4.5 billion) and a track record of corruption and failures. Once again, it turns out that the FDA is a huge waste of taxpayers’ money.

E-cigarettes are being used by hundreds of thousands of underage children and millions of adults with the hope that they are a safer alternative to tobacco products. However, it seems that nothing could possibly be further from the truth. Now we have research, but not from the CDC/FDA – the institutes who we depend on and fund massively to keep us safe and healthy.

There’s no wonder that the cancer rate continues to increase.

E-CIGS HAVE 10 TIMES MORE CANCER CAUSING INGREDIENTS THAN REGULAR CIGARETTES

According to research conducted by Japanese scientists, e-cigarettes contain 10 times the level of cancer-causing carcinogens than regular cigarettes. Until recently, e-cigarettes were recommended as the answer to smoking without the complication of so many dangers.

These electronic nicotine products became hugely popular because people believed that they were receiving a hit of nicotine without the need to worry about any health damage that’s caused by a normal cigarette, loaded with chemicals.

But when the Japanese Ministry of Health commissioned a research, they found formaldehyde and acetaldehyde carcinogens in the liquid produced by many e-cigarette products, stated a health ministry official.

The group also found that e-cigarettes can fuel potentially life-threatening drug-resistant pathogens. This discovery comes from a lab study that tested the vapor from e-cigarettes on live methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and human cells.

According to the official, the formaldehyde carcinogen is much more present in the e-cigarette liquids than in the chemicals used in regular cigarettes.

The researcher Naoki Kunugita said: “In one brand of e-cigarette the team found more than 10 times the level of carcinogens contained in one regular cigarette. Especially when the wire (which vaporizes the liquid) gets overheated, higher amounts of those harmful substances seemed to be produced.”

Kunugita also added that the levels of the formaldehyde carcinogen varied in the final results.

“You call them e-cigarettes, but they are products totally different from regular tobacco. The government is now studying the possible risks associated with them, with view to looking at how they should be regulated,” the Japanese health ministry official said.

Earlier in 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) advised governments to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to underage people because they posed a serious threat to them.

The UN health agency said that although there’s a lack of evidence regarding the damage caused by e-cigarettes, there was still enough evidence “to caution children and adolescents, pregnant women, and women of reproductive age” about their use. They also added that e-cigs should be outlawed from indoor public spaces.

The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated: “More than a quarter of a million youth who had never smoked a cigarette used electronic cigarettes in 2013, according to a CDC study published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research. This number reflects a three-fold increase, from about 79,000 in 2011, to more than 263,000 in 2013.”
