E-Cigarette Use

The U.S. Surgeon General has declared an “e-cigarette epidemic among youth.” In 2018 the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine published a report on the Public Health Consequences of E-Cigarettes. In April 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began investigating reports of seizures related to the use of vaping products. E-cigarette lawsuits have also claimed these products cause bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP) and hemorrhagic strokes. Many plaintiffs state that they became addicted to e-cigarettes, which led to or worsened their condition, due to the high levels of nicotine and chemical additives in the vape fluids.

Risks Of E-Cigarettes And Vaping

For a time, companies manufacturing these products said that vaping and e-cigarettes were less harmful than traditional cigarettes, but this statement has been challenged as false and recent news stories have disclosed the extremely harmful effects of these products. E-cigarettes and vaping pose a number of health risks including:

  • Nicotine addiction
  • Mouth and throat irritation
  • Coughing and wheezing
  • Worsening asthma
  • Chest pain
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Raised heart rate
  • Upset stomach
  • Nausea
  • Worsening depression and anxiety
  • Nicotine poisoning
  • Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP)
  • Hemorrhagic strokes
  • Popcorn lung

Additionally, the liquid used in e-cigarette cartridges is poisonous if drunk or if it comes into contact with eyes or skin.
