E-cigarettes could raise risk of cancer and heart disease, warn scientists 

E-cigarettes introduce a cancer risk.

E-cigarette vapour could raise the risk of developing cancer and heart disease by damaging DNA in as little as 10 years, a new study suggests.

Researchers from New York University School of Medicine said although it was clear that vaping was less harmful than smoking, it was still “dangerous” for non-smokers and should not be promoted as safe.

The scientists looked for mutations to DNA in animals, as well as human lung, bladder and heart cells, when exposed to e-cigarettes for the equivalent of 10 years.

They found that in comparison to filtered air, e-cigarette vapour damages DNA and also prevents the genetic code from repairing itself.
