Vaping Study Looking for Participants

Cancer Research UK are funding a study into the possible cancer risks associated with e-cigarettes.

Researchers are looking for vapers, smokers and non-smokers to participate in the study.

The study will see saliva samples examined to see whether e-cigarette users’ methylation profile indicates future risk (as is the case with smokers).

Methylation refers to changes in DNA that may predict cancer risk.

With vaping being a relatively new phenomenon, it will be a while before the long-term effects are fully understood. This study aims to fill a gap in research in the meantime.

Those participating in the study will be entered into a £400 prize draw with rewards ranging from £20 to £100.

More information and a link to the study can be found here.
