Benzene, found in traffic pollution and paint stripper, has been linked to a number of diseases including leukaemia and bone marrow failure. Now scientists have found that levels can form in the vapours of the devices when they are operated at high power. These are much higher than those found in the surrounding atmosphere – which have been linked to increased cancer risk. The higher an e-cig’s voltage, the greater the resulting amount of vapour. This means a stronger throat hit and more intense taste. Vaping competitions, where participants produce huge clouds of smoke, have become increasingly trendy with the world championship offering total prize money of $100,000. Benzene is a component of petrol and is found in urban air because of industrial emissions and traffic pollution. It has been named the biggest single cancer-risk ambient air toxin in the United States. Significant amounts of benzene was detected in of the devices, also known as vapes, at power levels well within the manufacturer’s recommended range of settings.
