Vaping by Dr. Darryl Addington, SAR Surgeon General

Vaping by Dr. Darryl Addington, SAR Surgeon General

Author: Mick Pitzer

There have now been over a 1000 cases of pulmonary illnesses linked to vaping with 12 deaths. The reason for the illnesses has not been determined.

Nicotine, flavoring, other chemicals are contained in vaping liquids. They may also contain THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Vaping material purchased on the black market may contain chemicals which are very toxic and may cause severe illness or death.

The illness associated with vaping has symptoms of difficulty breathing, coughing, chest pain, diarrhea and vomiting.

A recent study by NIH in mice exposed to vaping shows changes to lung and bladder tissue that could lead to cancer. The link appears to be nicotine in the vaping material.

 Vaping is not safe for youth, young adults, and pregnant women. People who do not use tobacco should not begin vaping. Vaping may cause a problem with brain development in teens.
