New Study Exposes Vaping Risks

Vaping increases the risk of developing emphysema, asthma and other chronic pulmonary diseases by 30%, according to the first study of vaping’s long-term impacts on health.

University of California-San Francisco researchers followed 32,000 U.S. adults who didn’t have previous signs of lung disease for 3 years beginning in 2013, according to an article published yesterday in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

The risk for respiratory illnesses triples for dual users—people who vape and smoke traditional cigarettes, according to the study.

“It’s 100 percent not safe,’’ said Mangala Narasimhan, a New York lung specialist not involved with the study.
