According to David H. Peyton, PhD, of Portland State University in Oregon, and colleagues, more than 2% of solvent molecules in aerosol samples produced by “vaping” e-cigarettes degraded into formaldehyde. While it’s not nearly as noxious as tobacco smoke, it’s not far-fetched to speculate that long-term e-cigarette use might pose a risk of cancer. Via MedPage Today. Posted January 26, 2015.
