Kallithea, Greece, June 11th 2018 – A new aerosol chemistry study presented on Saturday at the 1st Scientific Summit – Tobacco Harm Reduction: Novel products, Research & Policy, has revealed toxicant levels in myblu pod-system e-cigarette aerosols are up to 99% lower than in cigarette smoke.
Speaking at the conference, Dr Grant O’Connell, Corporate Affairs Manager at Fontem Ventures, the owner of the e-cigarette brand blu, said “Consistent with emerging clinical data, this study demonstrates that high quality vaping devices and e-liquids offer the potential to substantially reduce exposure to carcinogens and toxicants in smokers who use them as an alternative to cigarettes.”
The study entitled “Chemical Composition of myblu™ Pod-System E-Cigarette Aerosols: A Quantitative Comparison with Conventional Cigarette Smoke” analysed 51 toxicants of public health interest¹. Only eight were observed at quantifiable levels. These included formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and acrolein – all showing a more than 99% reduction compared to conventional cigarette smoke; manganese and selenium (average 82% reduction vs. cigarette); and NNN, NAT and NNK (more than 99% reduction vs. conventional cigarette)2.
