Tobacco smoke is known to aggravate asthma, but there is less evidence on how vaping affects those with the condition.

Vape Juice Flavors For E - Cigarettes May Cause Heart Issues. Are we done thinking vaping is safe yet? In the study , researchers found that all of the vape juice flavorings tested can impair blood vessel “Our findings suggest that these flavoring additives may have serious health consequences.”

To find out more, researchers exposed mice to various flavors of e-cigarette vapor: black licorice, cola, banana pudding, and "cinnacide," both with and without nicotine. Some mice were exposed to regular room air, to act as the control.

Black licorice was found to increase airway inflammation. Cinnacide, meanwhile, suppressed inflammation, and increased the sensitivity of airways. Banana pudding exaggerated the level of tissue scarring.

The authors wrote: "Our findings suggest that flavored e-cigarettes without nicotine can alter allergic airways disease but that the effect is dependent upon the specific flavor." Allergic airways diseases include asthma and rhinitis.

"These findings highlight the potential for flavored e-cigarettes, in the absence of nicotine, to negatively contribute to asthma outcomes and warrant caution in promoting their use to patients with asthma," the authors wrote.

Los Angeles could ban all e-cigarettes and vaping devices

  Los Angeles could ban all e-cigarettes and vaping devices A Los Angeles city councilman has proposed banning all e-cigarettes and vaping devices in the city — a move that would be one of the most extreme steps yet to curb an outbreak of lung illnesses linked to vaping. The proposal, introduced at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, would prohibit the sale of e-cigarette and vaping devices until they are deemed safe by the Food and Drug Administration. Since the FDA has not approved any such devices, the law would essentially ban all of them. San Francisco passed a similar law earlier this year.

Future studies could look at the specific chemicals in e-cigarettes that might trigger these toxic effects, with the research potentially forming the basis of regulations.

David Chapman, a translational physiologist at University of Technology Sydney who led the study, commented in a statement: "The majority of e-cigarette smokers use flavored liquids but there is some evidence that flavor additives can be toxic when inhaled.

"The exact effects on features of asthma were dependent upon the specific flavor, suggesting not all flavored e-cigarettes will have the same consequences on lung health," he said.

In recent years, the use of e-cigarettes has spiked: from 1.5 percent of high school students in 2011 to 15 percent in 2015. Around 9 percent of 18-to-24-year-olds use e-cigarettes, according to research cited by the authors.

The study comes amid what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has described as an "outbreak" of lung injuries linked to e-cigarettes. The agency has launched an investigation after seven people with a history of using e-cigarettes died, across six states. A total of 530 injuries have been reported across 38 states and one U.S. territory. Most victims used e-cigarettes containing THC products—a combination of the ingredients and nicotine—while some only contained nicotine.

Teen vaping rates doubled in 2019, with 25 percent of high school seniors using e-cigarettes

Teen vaping rates doubled in 2019, with 25 percent of high school seniors using e-cigarettes The percentage of teenagers who are vaping has doubled in the past two years, according to new data released Wednesday, with 25 percent of high school seniors using an e-cigarette in the past month.The data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) also shows that 20 percent of 10th grade students vaped in the past month, up from 16 percent in 2018. And 9 percent of 8th grade students have vaped in the past month, up from 6 percent in 2018. NIDA Director Dr. Nora Volkow said the numbers show teen vaping is a "public health crisis.

Despite the fears surrounding e-cigarettes, the CDC has advised adults who have quit regular cigarettes and turned to vaping not to return to smoking tobacco due to the proven health problems associated with the habit.

"If you have recently used an e-cigarette or vaping product and you have symptoms like those reported in this outbreak see a healthcare provider," the agency states on its website.

The Trump administration has responded by unveiling plans to ban flavored e-cigarettes.
