E-liquids, particularly glycerin and propylene glycol, may cause mild lung irritation, according to a recent study. More research is needed to determine how much inflammation may occur over a long period of time. Although the extent of the changes was tiny, the study found that even in those who had never smoked, use of e-cigarettes two times daily for a month was related with changes in inflammatory cell counts in the lungs, even in people who had never smoked.
E-cigarette usage may have a negative impact on lung inflammation, according to experts who conducted the study. As a result of this, the federal government is now investigating an outbreak of lung harm associated to e-cigarette usage, but the research has no direct connection to this.
Vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol, which act as transporters for flavourings and nicotine in e-liquids, were specifically evaluated as part of the study. When comparing the lungs of people in the e-cigarette and control groups, the researchers found no significant differences in amounts of proteins or inflammatory cells. However, researchers found a correlation between the quantity of propylene glycol individuals in the e-cigarette group smoked and the number of inflammatory cells in their lungs.
Dentists are also warning that it might cause damage to your mouth’s teeth. Dental professionals may disagree with the widespread perception that vaping is a safe alternative to smoking. Toxic nicotine levels in e-cigarette cartridges, according to the study, are the main reason why vaping does not benefit your oral health. As they put it, “That might cause damage.” A lack of saliva can lead to dry mouth, which can then lead to cavities. But things get worse. “It can lead to gum disease, which can have serious repercussions.”
