Could e-cigarettes cause INFERTILITY? Devices ‘contain more toxins than polluted air’

Over the past couple years, many longtime and first-time smokers have shifted away from traditional cigarettes to e-cigarettes. The belief is that e-cigarettes are safer for our health than traditional cigarettes. However, according to a new study they may contain more harmful toxins than previously expected. In fact, they may be even more harmful than polluted air, “one million times” more harmful. The toxins in these e-cigarettes may even be linked to infertility, and cause fetal developmental problems. The concerns among the scientists who conducted the study are so high, they’ve asked for an outright ban on e-cigarettes throughout Japan. They aren’t just looking for a ban on the sale of the devices; they’re looking for a ban on all “advertising, promotion and sponsorship, distribution, import and manufacturing of e-cigarettes.” The study also found that 7.9 percent of individuals aged 15 to 29 years old had used e-cigarettes in the past 30 days.
