  • In realistic conditions, formaldehyde in e-cigarettes is lower than cigarette smoke
  • The high levels of formaldehyde emissions that were reported in a previous study were caused by unrealistic use conditions that create the unpleasant taste of dry puffs to e-cigarette users and are thus avoided.
  • The study shows the critical need to verify that realistic use conditions are tested in laboratory studies of e-cigarette emissions. This would ensure that abuse of devices in the laboratory setting is avoided and that findings have clinical relevance and represent realistic exposure of e-cigarette users.
