Ethan Carver, PhD - Effects of Electronic Cigarettes on Cell Cultures, and Their Implications for Human Health
E-cigarettes have become increasingly popular in the past decade and are marketed as smoking cessatin aids. However, these products are not well regulated or researched. A number of toxic compounds have been discovered in the refill solutions: Nicotine and other tobacco alkaloids. This study uses tobacco alkaloids to test the effects of these chemicals on the growth of human cells in a culture system. Overall, this project illustrates the need for greater research on refill solutions, and the need for better labeling and regulation of refill solutions.
