New study: Carcinogens found in cigarettes also found in e-cigarettes

A new study published in Pediatrics has found that many of the carcinogens found in conventional cigarettes are also in e-cigarettes.

The study, which involved 103 teenagers, found that some chemicals were three times more likely to be in the systems of teens that used e-cigarettes and conventional cigarettes, while chemicals were also three times more likely to be found among youth who only used e-cigarettes than in youth that used neither conventional cigarettes or e-cigarettes.
