More than one in five electronic cigarette liquid mixtures contain nicotine, despite it being illegal in Australia, and people who vape are being exposed to an array of harmful chemicals that could be acutely toxic.

They are they findings from a Curtin University study which is the most comprehensive examination of the composition and toxicity of e-liquids supplied or manufactured in Australia. Lead researcher, Associate Professor Ben Mullins [...] said users who vaped heavily could develop serious respiratory problems or even die.

“The levels of those four chemicals in some of the e-liquids were at levels that would be considered unsafe,” he said.
