    17 year old gets double lung transplant, necessitated by vaping

    Doctors Say They've Performed The First Double Lung Transplant Due to Vaping


    Doctors in Michigan said Tuesday they had performed what they believe is the first double lung transplant on a patient whose lungs were damaged from vaping, highlighting the extreme steps medical experts are taking as they confront a nationwide rash of vaping-related illnesses.

    Vaping is just the tobacco industry's answer to the decline in smoking. It's their way of getting another generation hooked on nicotine.


    Vaping should be outlawed.


    Yes, that's just an opinion, but it's my opinion, and I treasure it.

    Seems to me the fda or the atf have a lot of explaining to do if these problems are related to vaping. Why were they approved to go to market if they are so dangerous?

    I vape. Here's wherethe problem is - most of the trouble has cone from black market THC products. The culprit is vitamin E acetate, which does not appear in legal nicotine products.

    They think that may be the culprit.
    Or, maybe absorbing drugs through your lungs isn't such a great idea.

    That is certainly the impression this article was designed to trigger. It specifically avoids providing any information that would actually be useful or meaningful to make any kind of reasoned assessment though. There are several potential and actual problems and risks associated with vaping but a simplistic “Me say vaping bad!” rant is no better than a “Me say drinking bad!” would be.

    People have been smoking ganja for decades, no real link to physical ailments from it.
    Unless a good Libertarian candidate emerges, I can support a moderate Dem. Biden, Klobuchar, or Mayor Pete. If it's Bernie, I will abstain. I bet I'm not alone.

    They've been smoking tobacco for decades as well. The tobacco industry once told us that there was no harm in that, either. Now, they're working on getting a new generation hooked on nicotine.
