Recent Testing Finds E-Cig Formaldehyde Levels Below WHO Limits
Recent testing done by a tobacco company on three of their e-cigarettes has shown that even in worse case scenarios, the levels of formaldehyde are less than the WHO guidelines.
Toxicologist Sandra Costigan who was involved with the tests, said of the results, We believe e-cigarettes hold great potential for reducing tobacco-related disease. For this reason, we continue to strive to better define and further reduce any residual risks that there may be, to as low a level as possible. The results from this study show that even heavy use of these products still only results in daily formaldehyde exposure that is less than one sixth of the exposure from breathing indoor air that complies with WHO air quality standards,
The e-cigarettes involved were tested under what the tobacco company called worst case, high voltage conditions, under which the most formaldehyde would be produced.
The researchers estimated that vapers on average took a total of 350 puffs of an e-cig per day, and so programmed lab-based robots to produced vapor in as realistic a way as possible. The levels of formaldehyde were then measured. The results showed that even in the worst case, the amount of formaldehyde was over 10 times less than the formaldehyde from a tobacco cigarette, smoked under standard ISO conditions.
