A research team at the University of California, Riverside has found that electronic cigarettes damage brain cells. KVCR's Benjamin Purper has more.
The team found that e-cigarettes produce a stress response in neural stem cells, which are critical cells in the brain.
Stem cells become specialized cells in the body like brain or blood cells. They’re a lot more sensitive to stress than specialized cells, which means we can study them to find out how the body reacts to stress.
