As long as you don't use the study to propose any legislation I'm all for documenting the dangers of vaping. Where you have water vapor entering your lungs I wouldnt be surprised to find out that heavy ussage can cause pneumonia. But with that being said the potential dangers should be out there for people to inform themselves so consenting adults can make they're own decions whether or not they wish to use the product.

Big surprise! Vaping is probably just as terrible for you in terms of nicotine.

I enjoy smoking. i tried vape. but health wise no good. i know vaping its worse. Vaping did get a lot of non-smoking kids to smoke. On a side note. I pay taxes for my ciggs. i will smoke where i choose, am respectful about it. people choose to give me nasty looks. Truth be told, The exhaust from a motor vehicle, is by far worse.

Scare mongering and conflation. Vaping isn't the issue. Dry herb vapes are apples to oranges compared with e-cigs and other liquid vapes. It's the liquid that's bad not the act of vaping (or smoking at a temperature below combustion point.) I am willing to accept that I am wrong and vaping altogether is harmful if the data supports it, but why is there so much BS to dig through to get meaningful info?

We need to actually get facts. This blanket demonization of vaping will not help anyone. But just like when Batteries exploded the media attacked vaping instead of educating people on proper battery handling.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't vape just water vapour? Why don't Saunas and hot showers cause this lung disease?

100% dislike vaping but I don't believe it's been around long enough to confirm this. "A" study means practically nothing. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if there were health problems from doing it.

I can promise you it was Illinois, not the vaping that killed him. Illinois is very bad for your health.

Worldwide millions vape, so far the probability of dying from vaping is effectively ZERO, whereas dying from a smoking related illness (e.g. cancer) is not. Moreover, none of the cited cases (reportedly) are connected by anything other than they all "vaped." However, vaping and e-cigarettes are different and these articles conflate them. Do propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) have effects on the human body? Recent research suggests it does, but it is one study. We can assume inhalation of PG and/or VG vapor will affect humans, but how is an unknown. On a side note, vaping a dirty vape can result in respiratory infections like breathing from anything dirty with mold, etc.

with cigarettes we know the long term risks. when we know very little about vaping, it's a completely unknown risk. it could be the darwin awards group version.
