The recent news about E-cigarettes causing cancer have been misleading. Researchers from New York University School of Medicine looked at how e-cigarette vapour affected the DNA of mice, and human cells in a dish. They didn’t look at how it affected people. And they didn’t directly compare it to smoking. The researchers focused on how components of e-cig vapour damage cells’ DNA. And DNA damage increases the risk of cancer. But they didn’t look directly at whether e-cigs caused cancer, either in mice or in people.
