22 people have been hospitalized with vaping-linked breathing problems. [View all]

Because the Food and Drug Administration does not require e-cigarette manufacturers to list all of their ingredients on product labels, scientists have resorted to taking the devices into the lab to figure out the ingredients.

One recent study from Yale University identified chemicals called acetals in some Juul e-cigarette liquids. Those chemicals, the researchers said, may be especially irritating to the lungs and cause damage when inhaled.

Teen lungs are not fully developed, which could potentially make them more vulnerable to the chemicals found in e-cigarettes.

"The aerosol has heavy metals and ultrafine toxic particles that penetrate deep into the lungs," Sadreameli said.

This is really frightening. So many kids in my son's high school vape. It's advertised as the "safe" way to "smoke" without the smelly smoke. These ads are a fraud and should be illegal.
