Over the weekend, a California man became the seventh person to die from a “vaping-related illness”. Researchers are looking into 380+ cases of lung illness associated with the use of e-cigarettes in 36 states including here in Broward County. Health officials warn that any use of e-cigarettes poses a risk to the lungs and can potentially cause severe lung injury that may lead to death. Several states including the federal government are taking steps to ban e-cigarettes. While the dangers of smoking cigarettes are well documented, the risks of vaping are still relatively unknown and only beginning to surface.
