Scientists found high concentrations of uranium and lead in tests performed by young people 14:39

American scientists from the University of Nebraska discovered that toxic metals accumulate in the bodies of young people aged 13-17 who smoke e-cigarettes. The research was published in the scientific journal magazine Tobacco Control (TC).

Urine tests showed that teens who vaped at least eight times a day had 30% more lead and 50% more uranium levels than their peers who avoided vaping or smoked only occasionally.

Biomarkers of uranium were highest in adolescents who preferred the sweet taste of smoked blends.

“The increased levels of uranium biomarkers found in the sweet flavor category are particularly concerning because fruit- and candy-flavored e-cigarettes account for a significant portion of consumption among young vapers. The sweet taste of e-cigarettes suppresses the acute and potentiating effects of nicotine, the study authors wrote. He warned that it could cause a brain reaction.

The scientists added that e-liquid, even if it is not nicotine, is full of chemicals that sometimes contain toxic metals such as arsenic, chromium, nickel, lead and uranium.
