Vaping linked to host of new health risks | Science News

I’ve felt cautious about the “vaping” trend ever-since it started…repackaging nicotine in an increasingly synthetic medium simply doesn’t appear to be a particularly brilliant idea (except maybe from a ethics-free financial perspective). This article summarises some of the ever-more-numerous studies showing the impact of vaping, particularly on immune function, but also on brain function and sperm counts. Most of these studies are in test tubes and in mice, but there are also a number of human studies that have been reviewed elsewhere.

 

Animal studies and analyses of gene activity point to broad range of potential new health risks from vaping affecting everything from sperm to heart and immunity to mental health.
