What are Vaping and E-Cigarette Injuries?
According to a Mayo Clinic study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on October 2nd, 2019, research has found that lung injuries from vaping are most likely caused by direct toxicity or tissue damage from noxious chemical fumes. According to the study, the injuries examined are similar to what one might find with exposures to toxic chemical fumes, poisonous gasses, and toxic agents. Of the 17 biopsies examined in the study, all of the patients had vaped, and 71% had vaped with marijuana or cannabis oils. Additionally, all showed acute lung injury, including pneumonitis, and two of the patients died.
