Report: Electronic Cigarettes Apparently Cause Lung Function Changes

(New York, NY) -- New electronic cigarettes apparently cause changes in the lung function of people who use them.

(New York, NY)  --  New electronic cigarettes apparently cause changes in the lung function of people who use them.

A small study done in Greece finds changes in airways after people puffed on the e-cigarettes for five minutes.

They saw signs of airway constriction and inflammation.

The scientists who conducted the study say they aren't certain about the long-term effects of using the devices.

The electronic cigarettes deliver a stream of vaporized liquid nicotine and supposedly allow smoking without exposure to toxins.

A spokesman for the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association insists the e-cigarettes are much safer than traditional smokes.

He says they eliminate second-hand smoke.
