E-cigs linked to weaker bones

Use of e-cigarettes — also known as “vaping” — is linked to increased risk of hip, spine and wrist fractures, according to US News & World Report. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh examined data from more than 5,500 health survey participants and found that those who reported using e-cigarettes were 46 percent more likely to experience fractures. More research is needed to determine whether the e-cigarettes directly cause fractures, but physicians urge users to quit regardless.
