Recent news from researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) compared oxidative stress in the lungs of routine cigarette smokers, vapers and people with no history of long-term use of tobacco or nicotine devices. Oxidative stress describes the damaging effects that free radicals have on the body. Vaping for just 30 minutes produced oxidative stress levels two to four times higher than baseline levels in people with no previous smoking history. Over time, the effects of increased oxidative stress in the body as a result of vaping can cause certain diseases including cardiovascular, lung and neurological diseases as well as cancer.
