E-cigarettes came as an alternative to conventional cigarettes, but they may inflict serious damage on the smoker’s health, a new study claims.

When mice were exposed to electronic cigarette vapor, they showed DNA damage in the lungs, bladder and heart, which could multiply the risk of cancer and heart diseases, according to experts of NYU School of Medicine. In fact, the same damage was found in cultured human lung and bladder cells, due to the exposure to e-cigarette vapor for around ten years.

Moon-shong Tang, study co-author, Department of Environmental Medicine at the New York University School of Medicine, together with his fellow researchers, published their findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Over the recent years, e-cigarettes have been gaining steam, chiefly among youngsters and adults. Statistically speaking, over 2 million middle and high school students in the US have used e-cigarettes in the past 30 years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) asserted.

However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) did not approve e-cigarette as an electronic aid for smoking cessation. On the other hand, over 80% of smokers think that e-cigarettes can help them quit smoking, and 97% believe that battery-powered devices help reduce the use of tobacco.
