Cigarette smoke is deadly and contains at least 69 known carcinogens (cancer-causing chemicals), many in high doses. [...] Most carcinogens are broken down to other chemicals in the body, known as 'biomarkers'. The dose or level of a biomarker is what determines its cancer risk. This is the key principle of 'the dose makes the poison'. By comparing the levels of cancer biomarkers from smoking and vaping we can compare the cancer risk from smoking versus vaping.
