E-cigarette Flavors May Increase Your Risk of Cardiovascular Disease, Study Finds
Flavors common in e-cigarettes, such as caramel, vanilla and cinnamon, can do more harm to our bodies than once previously thought.
New research finds these flavors can damage the cells that line the interior of blood vessels and can increase a person’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease later on in life. Cinnamon and menthol flavors were particularly harmful because they disrupted cells’ ability to form new blood vessels, while cells exposed to caramel and vanilla flavors experienced greater inflammation. The key to avoiding these effects is to avoid e-cigarettes. Check out USA Today for more on this finding.
