Vape smoking mixtures contain two dangerous components - vitamin E and propylene glycol, said the candidate of medical sciences, cardiologist Yaroslav Ashikhmin.

He told the 360 Channel that vitamin E promotes the development of cancer, and propylene glycol causes damage to the lungs when heated.

According to him, the technology used in e-cigarettes has not passed the relevant tests and studies, which means that it can be potentially dangerous.

The specialist advised people giving up smoking to medicate.

By the way, 42 people have already died from this disease, and thousands of cases are also known.

Specialists from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believe that the main cause of the disease is vitamin E acetate, which was found in all samples collected for the study of fluid from the lungs of sick patients.
