Oncotarget: The Truth is the Truth

You can’t hardly go anywhere without seeing someone blowing vapor from their mouth. E-cigarettes have become extremely popular. I guess the less addictive and more reliable cigarette is all the rage these days. Its stock is definitely rising with no real signs of stopping.

E-cigarettes did hit a small bump in the road of sorts though. Oncotarget’s, a peer reviewed English medical journal, first study published uncovered a few things i think e-cigarette companies wouldn’t want getting out. The results of the study stand as proof that e-cigarettes aren’t as safe as brands would have you believe. Although they do not produce tobacco smoke and secondhand smoke may be completely eliminated, e-cigarettes do contain nicotine and chemicals that are capable enough to cause bodily harm. Check the journal at SCImago Journal & Country Rank.

The e-liquid inside the e-cigarette is what’s behind the majority of damage reported in the study. Individuals who participated in the study had clear signs of gum soreness and inflammation.

Oncotarget caught a lot of backlash from e-cigarette smokers, criticizing it review process. Many of them felt the medical journal was nitpicking, but the truth is the truth.
