(FOX NEWS) – A new study finds that mint and menthol flavored e-cigarettes products may contain a chemical known to cause cancer.
Pulegone has been linked to cancer in the lungs and livers of lab mice that was exposed to the chemical.
They added that Pulegone levels in some e-cigarette products were significantly higher than regular cigarettes.
The FDA recently banned Pulegone as an additive to food products as a result of its toxicity.
This study comes as several states including Michigan and New York have prohibited the sale of flavored e-cigarettes.
Results of the study can be found in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.
