The number of vaping-related illnesses in the U.S. continues to grow, at a truly alarming rate, with the CDC confirming 530 cases, including at least seven deaths, so far in 2019. That’s way up, from 380, last week.
Officials still don’t know exactly what’s causing the outbreak of lung disease, although some studies have linked it to high levels of Vitamin E – which is found in some vaping products.
The CDC strongly urges you to quit using e-cigarettes, until all of the health impacts are researched.
New York and Michigan have both banned flavored vape products, as a federal ban is reportedly considered.
