Electronic cigarettes carcinogenic - For those who have stuck to the e-cigarettes thinking these sticks are safer than the actual cigarette, think again. New studies claim that the e-cigarettes contain more cancer causing chemicals than the cigarettes made out of tobacco.

New research suggests that electronic cigarettes carcinogenic content reach up to 10-times than that of regular cigarettes. Japanese scientists revealed such study on Thursday. For those who have only heard of electronic cigarettes now, these devices are particularly popular amongst the young generations. Such devices function with the use of a heating flavoured liquid containing nicotine. This then turns into vapour which is inhaled.

So while some think e-cigars are healthier and safer than the regular tobacco stick, the research commissioned by the health ministry of Japan says otherwise. Electronic cigarettes carcinogenic content is that of acetaldehyde and formaldehyde. First is formaldehyde, which is found in embalming fluids, has higher levels in the e-cigar.

"In one brand of e-cigarette the team found more than 10 times the level of carcinogens contained in one regular cigarette," says researcher Naoki Kunugita in a report by the Business Insider, adding, "Especially when the... wire (which vaporises the liquid) gets overheated, higher amounts of those harmful substances seemed to be produced."

Apart from electronic cigarettes carcinogenic threat to its users, the World Health Organization has already warned the public of its effect on young people and unborn babies. The exposure to the vapour caused by e-cigarettes could have "long-term consequences for brain development."

Despite the studies release by the Japanese health ministry, a research done by the E-cigarettes Research Advocates Group begs to differ. According to their research, electronic cigarettes carcinogenic content, specifically on formaldehyde is six times lower than that of the regular tobacco cigarette.

If smokers had to choose between the electronic cigarettes carcinogenic content and the regular tobacco cigarette carcinogenic content, which had the lesser evil? To make it easier, quit while it's still early.
