GLANTZ: New evidence that e-cigs damage human lungs more than conventional cigs

They found “a unique e-cigarette-induced innate lung response that includes markers of aberrant neutrophilic response and altered mucin secretion and indicate that the effects of e-cigarettes are overlapping with yet distinct from those observed in otherw

E-Cigarette Use Causes a Unique Innate Immune Response in the Lung Involving Increased Neutrophilic Activation and Altered Mucin Secretion.

Together, our results indicate that e-cigarette use alters the profile of innate defense proteins in airway secretions, inducing both similar and unique changes relative to cigarette smoking. These data challenge the concept that e-cigarettes are a healt

Combined Impact of Smoking and Early-Life Exposures on Adult Lung Function Trajectories

Besides accelerating adult FEV1 decline, cigarette smoking also modifies how early-life exposures impact on both midlife FEV1 and FVC. These findings are consistent with smoking impairing pulmonary development during adolescence or early adulthood, thereb

Maternal E-cigarette Exposure in Mice Alters DNA Methylation and Lung Cytokine Expression in Offspring.

we found that e-cigarette exposure during pregnancy adversely affected maternal and offspring lung health. As this occurred with both nicotine free and nicotine containing e-vapour the effects are likely due to by-products of vaporisation rather than nic
