More than 150 people reported vaping after severe lung illnesses surface across US

https://time.com/5655329/vaping-lung-disease-cdc/

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are investigating a growing number of “severe” lung disease cases that appear to be related to vaping.

The CDC first announced on Saturday that it would help state health departments investigate a concerning number of serious lung illnesses apparently linked to use of e-cigarettes, which heat substances including nicotine and cannabis to create aerosols that users inhale. At that time, 94 cases in 14 states had been reported—but as of Wednesday, according to a CDC statement, the number had ballooned to 153 possible cases in 16 states, primarily among adolescents and young adults. No deaths have been reported.

There is no known cause of the illnesses, and the CDC notes that it’s not clear whether all of the cases were caused by the same thing. Still, vaping appears to be a common thread across states involved in the investigation. Many patients said symptoms began with difficulty breathing, shortness of breath and chest pain, and some progressed to include vomiting, diarrhea and fatigue. An infectious disease does not appear to blame, the CDC says.

I love this writing tactic in journalism.

buried in the middle that most readers never make it to.. Oh well won't look at that

Quote:
but many people reported using products that contain THC

said patients may have consumed substances including nicotine, THC and/or synthetic cannabinoids
150 people out of a nation is well. Non-news and once you eliminate all other outside factors.. Yeah.. Vape your nicotine, and stop using cheap Chinese knockoff vaping products and liquids.

Re: More than 150 people reported vaping after severe lung illnesses surface across US

I mean, I don't think it's "healthy," (I have seen some crazies claim this) but I think a lot of the recent stuff about vaping and lung disease is a bit overstated. Also, speaking as someone who does, I'm well aware that there might potentially be adverse health effects to filling my lungs with stuff that's not technically supposed to be there

"may be related"

"apparently linked"

"There is no known cause of the illnesses"

Uh huh.

Has anyone seen Idiocracy? Because I swear it feels like America is doing everything it can possibly do to make that dystopia a reality.

wouldnt be surprised to find out that vaping is worse for you than normal smoking in some years.

Ive tried both, I don't like either but personally found vaping to be disgusting that stuck to my lungs for weeks.

If you voluntarily take up vaping with no history of smoking cigarettes... you are a fucking fag

Hhahahahaha! No.

Vaping probably isn't good for you but neither is living in a society where you go for a job and breathe in the junk coming out of fossil fuel burning vehicles. We're exposed to things far worse than vaping on a daily basis.

As someone stated, stop using cheap juices and products from china and unsavory sellers, grow a brain and ditch the habit if you're that cheap.

Still training, saying my prayers, eating my vitamins and believing in myself.

I'm not going to claim vaping is good for you. I will say I've been vaping tobacco instead of smoking cigarettes for over a year and I can actually run around with my nine year old and take the stairs without getting winded and going into coughing fits.

Not removing until (X ) Ric Flair shows up on TV stone sober.(It looks like he did it. Good for you Naitch

If anyone is interested in purchasing ultra rare footage of Pat Patterson winning the first Intercontinental Championship in Rio de Janeiro just send me your PayPal username and password and I'll take care of the rest.

I begin to think, that a calm is not desirable in any situation in life....Man was made for action and for bustle too, I believe - Abigail Adams
