    Less Formaldehyde In Vapor Than Previously Thought

    Apologies if already posted

    Extract:

    Good news for vapers who arenít keen on sucking back a chemical widely used in embalming fluid: e-cigarettes don't appear to emit as much formaldehyde as previously thought, and tend to emit levels much lower than cigarettes, according to a study published this week in Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology.

    The study was a kind of rebuttal to a controversial letter published in the New England Journal of Medicine last year that raised alarm bells about dangerously high levels of formaldehyde in e-cigarette vapor. The letter outlined a test the authors had done to measure the levels of formaldehyde (a known carcinogen) emitted from an e-cigarette, writing that the device tested puffed out as much as five times the formaldehyde as cigarettes when on the highest heat setting. The authors even concluded that vapers were at as much as 15 times higher risk of cancer than smokers.

    MDF, plyboard and particle board all currently use formaldehyde as an ingredient in the glue that binds them together.

    The materials continue to emit formaldehyde into the air for their lifespan.

    Your kitchen cupboards, Ikea furniture, sub-floor etc are all pumping formaldehyde continuously into your living area.

    So whilst this debate about how much formaldehyde comes from a dry hit continues the real dangers of this carcinogenic chemical go pretty much unnoticed.

    Australia manufactures low emission products but they are sold overseas where there are sensible laws regarding safe emission levels. We get the stuff that's bad.

    Vape on and worry not my friends.

    Oh and keep a window open at home.
