The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now vowing to work with state and local agencies to investigate what is now a series of vaping related deaths gripping the country. There are now 450 cases of serious lung-illness in 33 states as vaping increases across the US. E-cigarette users are now being warned as the explosive nature of these illnesses have many officials asking questions.
While vaping has been around for over 10 years, the serious illnesses started in May and June of 2019 and the number of complaints is increasing rapidly. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a warning through its director Barbra Ferrer, “Stop vaping now, until further information in what is causing lung damage and death can be understood.” The Food and Drug Administration said that it collected 120 samples of e-cigarettes and is conducting tests to see what is causing pulmonary illness.
