Michigan boy, 17, gets double lung transplant after damage from vaping

A 17-year-old boy in Michigan has undergone a double lung transplant, the first in a patient suffering from the effects of e-cigarettes. A doctor involved in the proceedings said the boy ’faced imminent death had he not received a lung transplant’. Family members of the boy, not identified, said they had asked doctors to make public the ’horrific life-threatening effects’ of vaping.

It's his choice to vape. It's also his choice to be uneducated on any and all potential side effects. I dont believe in the hoax that's spreading like all vapes bad, must ban.

what does the vape have to do with this? Did the vaporizer enter his lungs and destroy them? Or is there a chance of black-market substances?

I like how they are leaving out how he had random street shit mixed in. If you can't trust the media to be honest with something this benign, you shouldn't trust anything they say. Vapers are fags, but journalist are far worse.

Cant tell if I am mad because media pushed these to benefit big tobacco or glad that people see vaping as dangerous so they stop doing it in public places.
