Researchers Find E-cigarettes Cause Lung Cancer in Mice in First Study Tying Vaping to Cancer

MONDAY, Oct. 7, 2019 (CNBC)—E-cigarette vapor causes lung cancer and potentially bladder cancer in mice, damaging their DNA and leading researchers at New York University to conclude that vaping is likely “very harmful” to humans as well.

“It’s foreseeable that if you smoke e-cigarettes, all kinds of disease comes out” over time, Moon-Shong Tang, the study’s lead researcher, said in an interview. “Long term, some cancer will come out, probably. E-cigarettes are bad news.”

Dr. Andrew C. von Eschenbach honored for leadership in National Lung Screening Trial

THURSDAY, October 10, 2019—The Prevent Cancer Foundation® honored Andrew C. von Eschenbach, M.D. with the James L. Mulshine, M.D. Leadership Award for his work leading the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), the first large-scale clinical trial for low-dose CT lung cancer screening. The award was presented on October 10, 2019, at the 16th annual Quantitative Imaging Workshop: Lung Cancer, COPD and Cardiovascular Disease.

The award was presented by Jim Mulshine himself, saying, “Andy, you changed the world. 10 years ago, there was profound skepticism around implementing a national lung screening trial and now it’s unbelievable–the world has changed. On behalf of the hundreds of thousands that have been spared the suffering of a lung cancer diagnosis, I thank you for the work you have done.”
