Dr. Farsalinos reproduces controversial formaldehyde study

Support HR2058

A recent article by RStreet looks at Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos' latest study, published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology.

Dr. Farsalinos and his colleagues reproduced a controversial study from 2015, which falsely claimed that e-cigarette vapor contains higher levels of formaldehyde than combustible cigarettes. Dr. Farsalinos' study found the opposite. He points to the skewed findings of the 2015 study being the result of "unrealistic use conditions" under which e-liquid was overheated to the point of creating a "dry puff". The dreaded dry puff is intolerable to normal vapers, making the claims of the 2015 study grossly misleading.
