Testing done by ANALYZE Inc, a premier independent consulting laboratory has determined that the vapor produced from the electronic cigarettes they tested do not contain any detectable levels of carcinogenic TSNAs. They tested electronic cigarettes marketed by NJoy and found that “there is no evidence that carcinogenic TSNAs are present in the aerosol”.
This is contrary to the FDA study which held a press release in mid 2009 to announce they had found carcinogens present in electronic cigarettes. So why this discrepancy? Well it appears the FDA testing was done on the liquid and not the vapor, which is what consumers inhale. As Jack Leadbeater, CEO of NJOY says, “In July the FDA released study information about the constituents of our electronic cigarettes that may have inadvertently misled the media and consumers about their health risks…. the FDA analysis evaluated only the contents of the cartridges used with our products, and not the constituents of the aerosol or vapor to which users are actually exposed or the potential health risk, if any, that may be posed by that exposure.”
