At least six deaths linked to vaping have been now reported.  As the number of vaping-related illnesses has continued to rise, with to at least 450 cases in 33 states, the Trump administration is making it clear they are going to get in front of this emerging crisis.

Cigarette smoking remains the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States, accounting for more than 480,000 deaths every year (about 1 in 5 deaths).  Because of the known risk of disease associated with smoking tobacco, for decades as a medical community we have tried to lower the usage of such products.

Electronic cigarettes have gained popularity within the last several years to counter the tobacco cigarette prevalence. Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) are characteristically battery-operated devices that can be used to inhale an aerosol, typically containing nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals.

As more young adults are being hospitalized with acute lung damage following the use of e-cigarettes, the medical community is beginning to look closer at the additives in the inhalants and why so many “kids” are falling ill.
