The popularity of vaping and electronic cigarettes has brought up many questions about possible health concerns.
The “juice” used in these devices along with the heating element or atomizer, can introduce many different organic and inorganic chemicals into the body. One pod of the introduced oil can contain approximately the same amount of nicotine found in 20 cigarettes. The aerosol released to both the user and the second-hand vapor can contain aldehydes, PAHs, organic acids, nicotine degradation products and trace heavy metals, all of which may be a concern to human health and the environment.
Currently, there are no regulations regarding the use of these chemicals in vaping products, but AccuStandard is aware of the concern.
AccuStandard now offers a line of analytical standards for research analysis.
