Vaping Illnesses Spread Across Country
Vaping Illnesses Spread Across Country

A growing body of evidence is pointing to a dangerous correlation between vaping and lung illness. Unfortunately, the immense popularity of vaping products in recent years likely means that there will be an ever-increasing number of cases popping up across the United States and the world at large for the foreseeable future.

Recently, medical professionals in Clark County, Nevada, reported their sixth case of vaping-related illnesses. The speed at which these cases are cropping up is particularly alarming, as is the age of the individuals displaying these conditions. According to data released by Clark County, one of the individuals who has been hospitalized is under the 18. Of the remaining cases, three individuals were between the age of 18 and 24.

Combating the Vaping Crisis

In response to this growing crisis, the CDC has provided a number of advisories to the general public, including the following:

  • Children should never been given access to vaping products.
  • People who are not currently using a tobacco product should avoid vaping entirely.
  • If someone chooses to buy a vaping product, they should make sure that they do not purchase vapes containing any THC.
  • Vaping hardware should not be modified in any form.

As a precautionary measure, the CDC is advising anyone who has used a vaping product within the past 90 days and has developed a respiratory illness not associated with a viral or bacterial infection to seek medical treatment immediately.
