Potential Risk of E-Cigarettes: Doctor's Warning
Doctors have warned of the potential risks of lung and oral cancer associated with e-cigarettes, despite inconclusive research.

Recently, Russian television station RT reported that although research on the effects of e-cigarettes on the human body is not yet fully clear, doctors have already sounded the alarm about possible risks of lung and oral cancers. Dr. Anastasia Maryenko, a manager in European oncology, issued this warning during an interview with RT.

 

Anastasia explained that cigarette smoke contains a large amount of free radicals, which, when entering the respiratory system, can disrupt the balance of antioxidants in the human body. This can potentially lead to the release of inflammatory mediators and the damage of lung tissue cell membranes. "This damage can have serious consequences, promoting chronic respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer, all of which also apply to e-cigarettes," warned experts.

 

While some may perceive the ingredients of e-cigarette liquid to be harmless, the reality is quite the opposite. When heated, these substances can transform into compounds that have the potential to damage DNA and facilitate the development of cancer. What is even more concerning is that, due to the absence of filters in e-cigarettes, a greater amount of harmful substances enters the body when they are used, added Anastasia.
