According to researcher, Karteek Kadimisetty, “Some people use e-cigarettes heavily because they think there is no harm. We wanted to see exactly what might be happening to DNA, and we had the resources in our lab to do that.” Studies have shown that DNA damage and cellular mutations are possible with increased vaping.
Of course, to most people, the news might be too surprising. Inhaling smoke — no matter where it comes from — generally isn’t a good idea.
So if you’ve been thinking vaping was the way to go to preserve your health, you might want to think again.
