Vapour from e-cigarettes can kill cells that protect lungs and damage immune system, study concludes

25 September 2019 – Independent

A study by scientists at the University of Adelaide in Australia has discovered that fumes from three types of apple-flavoured vaping liquid could destroy bronchial epithelial cells.

These line the respiratory system and are important for keeping the lungs and airways clean.

The researchers also discovered the vapour could interfere with the immune system, in particular by disrupting macrophages: white blood cells which digest and store unhealthy cells and foreign debris.
