Please see some key points below taken from a CBC news report. As they did a study on mice - https://www.jci.org/articles/view/128531
1) "The researchers also found chronic inhalation of e-cigarette vapours disrupted the ability of immune cells in the lungs, called macrophages, to successfully fend off influenza infection." - https://www.cbc.ca/…/e-cigarette-vaping-lung-damage-1.52709…
Definition of Macrophages - A macrophage is a type of phagocyte, which is a cell responsible for detecting, engulfing and destroying pathogens and apoptotic cells. Macrophages are produced through the differentiation of monocytes, which turn into macrophages when they leave the blood. Macrophages also play a role in alerting the immune system to the presence of invaders. - https://www.news-medical.net/life-…/Macrophage-Function.aspx
2) "Kheradmand and her team also reported that, as they expected, mice that were routinely exposed to cigarette smoke or to e-cigarette vapours containing nicotine had severely damaged lungs and excessive inflammation resembling what's found in human smokers with emphysema" - https://www.cbc.ca/…/e-cigarette-vaping-lung-damage-1.52709…
Definition of Emphysema - Emphysema is a lung condition that causes shortness of breath. In people with emphysema, the air sacs in the lungs (alveoli) are damaged. Over time, the inner walls of the air sacs weaken and rupture — creating larger air spaces instead of many small ones. This reduces the surface area of the lungs and, in turn, the amount of oxygen that reaches your bloodstream. - https://www.mayoclinic.org/…/e…/symptoms-causes/syc-20355555
3) "Investigators from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found a chemical in an oil derived from vitamin E in 10 of 18 cannabis products collected from patients across the U.S., the Washington Post reported Thursday. An investigation by New York's Department of Health also found very high levels of vitamin E acetate in nearly all cannabis-containing vaping samples studied in its lab. The vitamin is not an approved vaping additive." - https://www.cbc.ca/…/e-cigarette-vaping-lung-damage-1.52709…
Definition of Vitamin E - Vitamin E is a vitamin that dissolves in fat. It is found in many foods including vegetable oils, cereals, meat, poultry, eggs, fruits, vegetables, and wheat germ oil. It is also available as a supplement. - https://www.webmd.com/vitami…/…/ingredientmono-954/vitamin-e
Overall inhaling anything in your lungs other than air is not good for your health, you're at risk of weakening your lungs immune system and potentially damaging your lung air sacs.
As for products containing Vitamin E please stay away from any oil derived vape products such as THC / CBD liquids. You're potentially at risk of inhaling fat/grease. As you're taking a fat/grease based product and vaporizing it into your lungs. Then letting it form back into fat/grease coating your inner lungs causing excess fat/grease that could cause serious harm.
We will continue to EDUCATE our customers and the public with the POTENTIAL RISKS of Vaping as the study's come out.
