The Chemistry of Vaping

Some e-cigarettes sold in Japan contain more cancer-causing formaldehyde than normal cigarettes, according to a study funded by the country’s health ministry.

The Numbers: 120 micrograms of formaldehyde were found in smoke produced by certain e-cig products compared with 76 micrograms found in cigarettes.

Formaldehyde-releasing agents form when chemicals typically found in e-cig liquids are heated at the high voltage available on the battery-operated products.
