Posted in: E-cigarettes contain up to 10 times carcinogens: Japan researchers See in context

The writing adviser for the paper ,Naoki Kunugita, as is referenced in the paper, he is credit for "providing writing assistance and technical advice on the regulatory aspects of the paper". Didn't notice anything about testing (Author contributions section). . . hmmm.

The other point is the actual study didn't contain this data about 10 fold more than cigarettes , 13 products were tested but 4 of them had/contained nothing harmful at all. That was forgotten in the article. Another strange component was the testing were done using disposable non regulated devices like the one commonly used by people who vape. It was clear that "10 fold more levels" was an equipment malfunction which is possible with inexperienced users.

In the study, which I have found no account of in any media report, is the conclusion:

Second sentence " These substances can have adverse health effects: however, in most cases, the levels are lower than those in tobacco cigarettes smoke."

That's the bottom line the study does what they say it is better than smoking.
