VA is telling me latest research states vape machines change DNA and result in the C word. If the right one don't get you then the left one will.

Wow- Having a hard time believing that based on all my research- I don’t find anything with regard to that on a google search- I might as well go back to smoking tobacco cigarettes! So just looked and saw something stating vaping “may” alter oral DNA- Seems a little far fetched but even broccoli may alter DNA for all we know - It’s just that no one does extensive research on that- The bottom line is, nothing is completely safe- Life is terminal any way you look at it- I’m electing to continue vaping and using snus throughout the day, every day!

The following is copied from (dated 12/5/2018):

Here's what we know today about the dangers of vaping, by Ayleen Barbel Fattal, Florida International University

Although e-cigarettes were developed in part to help adult smokers cut their tobacco-use and to provide a "healthier" alternative, no study has yet been conducted that can provide information on the long-term effects of e-cigarette use. Due to the recent dramatic increase in e-cigarette use, preliminary findings are now showing that there is a negative effect on heart and lung function associated with e-cigarette use. However, there is still no definitive answer on whether these risks outweigh the benefits of switching from traditional tobacco cigarettes.

Teenage e-cigarette users are actually at a higher risk of smoking tobacco cigarettes compared to non-users. More than 30% of adolescent e-cigarette users start smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes within six months. Comment: While looking up research on e-cigarette dangers, I found a report from 2018 showing over 20% of high school students vape regularly. I believe this explains the plummeting of cigarette smoking by high school students over the last several years; i.e. probably half or more who would have otherwise started smoking have gone to vaping instead. If this claim that 30% go on to smoking cigarettes within six months is true, the statistics showing declining tobacco use will reverse.

Although e-cigarettes do not produce smoke, breathing in the second-hand vapor is not harmless. The aerosol from e-cigarettes contains many potentially harmful chemicals, including lead and other heavy metals. It also has flavorings including diacetyl, which has been linked to lung disease.

I haven't found anything specifically mentioning cancer risks, but some of the chemicals in e-cigarette vapor are carcinogenic. Another issue is that it's difficult to assess the dangers of any specific product. Across products, there is considerable variation in the nature and concentration of the ingredients, including nicotine and other known toxins.

It seems that vaping may just be another so called safer product that ends up being worse than the problem it was to solve!
