Researcher Florent Larue wants the public to realize just how much researchers still don’t know about vaping.

When electronic cigarettes first hit the market in the mid-2000s, they were marketed as a safe alternative to their combustible counterparts. And while manufacturers continue to make this argument, more and more scientific research is calling this claim into question.

Florent Larue is a master’s student in Concordia’s Department of Health, Kinesiology and Applied Physiology who works at the Montreal Behavioural Medicine Centre (MBMC). He is also a family physician originally from Montpellier in the south of France.

Larue is researching the cardiovascular and respiratory impacts of e-cigarettes, with the hope of expanding the public’s understanding of the real risks involved.
